I've generally made more money out of my eBay sales than I would ever get for trading in the same item. However, with the recent rise in postage costs the balance is starting to tip in the direction of trade-ins.

@TeaFiend I think you view them in jest. Likewise I could see top heavy female models as a bit of a joke. A laugh to have with Benny Hill minded people. We see eye-to-eye in that sense.

@TeaFiend If you are seriously interested try starting with the Cho Aniki series or Muscle March for the Wii. Heck even a few days ago we had that Mount Your Friends game with wildly flailing members and let's not forget Outlast with its muscle bound men with enormous dongs. That's just off the top of my head.

Uncle_Spanks

They've taken quite a risk buying a company that has made zero games. There are plenty of companies out there that are assembled from industry 'stars'. It doesn't necessarily translate to excellent games.

The story of HogRocket serves as one cautionary tale.

I'm one of the people affected by this. I was originally offered the digital version but after phoning and complaining I am going to receive a physical retail copy by this Wednesday (free of charge).

The Wii U box was also missing Nintendo VIP information for which Nintendo are responsible. I am awaiting a phone call from them regarding this matter which they have assured me will occur later in the week.

Thought this might help others out there who have read this article and are not happy with their recompense.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Review

Unfortunately NVIDIA have yet to address the issue of micro stutter with the 680 series and with their help forums having been down for over a month and no new drivers, it's all a bit piss poor.

These cards have the potential to be much more too.

Nintendo responds to Wii U power reports

Uncle_Spanks

6 years ago

I'm happy with the graphics as long as the technology works. They still haven't addressed the fact that only one tablet can be used and only within a certain distance of the console.

One tablet isn't going to cut it for what they call the "experience of playing."

Their competition is already offering a similar experience but manages to overcome the aforementioned problem.

The only gripe I have is that the speakers are badly placed and my thumbs often block out the sound (especially the higher frequencies). Easily solved with headphones but its not the best solution.

but Iwata is adamant that the Wii U arrival will not suffer the same setbacks as the 3DS did.
Then let's hope we can use more than one graphical controller as only one just doesn't cut it for multiplayer gaming away from the TV.
