    The PS4 has only been out for 4 months, wouldn't judge it too much just yet.

    Yeah I know in the long run it will have some quality games. I'm only disappointed as for a launch console I've barely touched it. Unfortunately there hasn't been anything I've been interested in. I didn't like Infamous but mgs is good :)

    Have you tried unplugging the battery for a few minutes?

    The prices may not be too popular, but for anyone interested in the GBA VC games, Australia have recently given ratings for Casltevania: Aria of Sorrow and F-Zero Legend. It seems like Nintendo might actually be pulling their finger out and putting up some genuinely decent games.

    I just hope the NES and SNES aren't neglected as a result.

    If anyone's interested in Deus Ex Director's Cut, Zavvi currently have it for a tenner. I already own it on 360 (and Steam, actually...) but I've bought it to play it on the Pad.

    Noticed that loads of Wii U games are cheaper than other platforms.

    No, I don't have a screwdriver the right size. From some googling I've done I've seen a lot of comments saying taking the battery out won't work. Might as well give it a go, when I get that damn screwdriver..

    If I send it back to Nintendo do I have to send the whole console? It's the Zelda edition with the black and gold controller.

    Not sure. Best to speak to them about it.

    I had some weird stuff going on with my controller. Removed the battery for a while then put it back in and it has been fine since.

    Okay, so I haven't turned my Wii U on for over a month and I 100% recall that the last time I played on it, the GamePad was fully charged.

    ... I went to pick the dusty GamePad up and couldn't even get the thing to turn on.

    After a moment or two of mild panic, it was actually the battery; the blooming thingmabobbins was dead! Is this a common thing? Just because I haven't played the Wii U for a lengthy period of time surely doesn't mean the GamePads battery died by, well ... just sitting there doing nothing?

    It takes way too long to charge up too.

    *grumbles*

    Anyways, got myself Super Mario Kart and Metroid Fusion, the latter runs absolutely brilliantly however, the display on the GamePad makes the colours look washed out.

    Why, oh why didn't Nintendo put those games for us to play on the infinitely superior 3DS display?

    p.s. Mario Kart 8 looks pretty good, hey?

    : )

    Its a common problem for all rechargeable batteries. Ok some are better than others at keeping charge but none are totally immune from the problem.

    The thing with the gamepad battery is its pathetic capacity so even a small drain is enough to deplete it over time. I had it where i turned off the dock it lives in as i was going away for a while, i came back and forgot to turn the dock back on so when i went to play Donkey Kong and it was dead.

    Fortunately DK can be fully played with the Pro Controller which keeps its charge like a trooper. Perhaps the gamepad has some wifi thing going on when the wii u is in standby ?

    Known as 'Sharzam' in 98.5% of games

    I didn't realise until this morning, but apparently the folk who worked on all the Sega 3D Classics for 3DS (M2) are working on the GBA Virtual Console games.

    It would explain why each game comes with a digitalised version of the original manual and that there are additional options for visual quality.

    @Armoured_Bear I already have my preorder in at Amazon :-)

    (and I think this should be the game to finally get me playing online consistently - on any system - for quite some time :-)

    I assume the battery in the Wii U pad was cheap as chips and is pretty low quality. The rate which it discharges when not in use and completely off is absolutely chronic, a few weeks and it's practically dead. Compare this to decent mobile phones/laptops, which would maybe lose a couple of percent in the same scenario, or Sanyo Eneloops which still have 75% charge left after a YEAR!

    The 3DS discharge is much better thankfully, but again suffers from amazingly long recharge times. Takes hours and hours to charge it's 1300mah (albeit overnight so it's not a deal breaker) battery, while the marginally bigger battery in my iPhone takes barely 90 minutes from flat.

    Still, I like the Wii U. I shudder at the thought of it being anyones one and only console, but there's been just enough games for me to not regret buying it as a third console. That's a lie, it's actually a fifth console for me, heheh, still got last gen hooked up neatly and discretely thanks to a rather spiffy tv stand courtesy of Ikea.

    I wonder if that will give a release date - or any surprises regarding other titles. It's about time there was some news.

    I assume it must be the release date, probably at least one new character reveal too. The only other game that's had dedicated Direct videos was Pokemon X/Y and the two they did for that revealed some pretty major information (initial announcement, release date, bank, mega evolutions, etc).

    Do you think sales of Smash Bros will rise if they make Reggie a playable character? :D

    It would be great if he was an unlockable character.

    MK looks stunning, if I had more time in the day i'd be tempted.
    Maybe once the kids are older, nothing beats MK on the sofa.
