    This may help you make your decision to buy Assassin's Creed IV a little bit easier to swallow:

    I mostly want it sooner rather than later because I don't want any spoilers, which in this context means pretty much anything about the levels and abilities in the game. I realise I'm being a bit unreasonable here, but I just like going in totally fresh like I mostly will when I eventually play Galaxy. Also I've not played Galaxy :p

    I've avoided most trailers and things for that reason too, but it'll get harder as time goes by. That said, I've not been spoiled when it comes to Ocarina of Time and that's not exactly a new release any more ;)

    Wii U just arrived. Doing the system update and then it's on to download Zelda.

    Can't wait! Anyone know if I can link my current NNID from my 3DS to the WiiU and still be eligible for this premium thing?

    I'm not 100% sure. I'd assume you'll get the option to sign in on the Wii U, and it'll link that Wii U with its premium thing to your account. At least I hope that's how it'll work, but this is Nintendo and the Internet here so who knows.

    So was playing the Metroid minigame on NintendoLand last night and though it's good enough...Can anyone tell me WHY Nintendo decided to MESS with Metroid Prime 3 's control method?

    Having to keep A pressed in order to look around/turn on the wiimote is SO annoying AND confusing too, I keep forgetting to do it when it gets hectic.

    Also, on the flying missions, it would be so great if they allowed you to invert the right stick controls for up/down, I keep going up when I want to go down.

    Some seriously clever people out there. Would be interesting to see how the tech compares to Nvidea Shield using Keplar decoding.

    Pikmin question. Having never played a pikmin game before I bought the first one on Wii yesterday for 5. How similar is pikmin 3? Still undecided on whether to get it.
  • Deleted user 31 December 2013 16:04:42

    The base gameplay is the same. However the structure is a bit different, and you control more than one guy in 3. Play the Wii game as you have it anyway and decide if you like it.

    If you cannot stand the idea of controlling the little fellas and directing them around then 3 won't win you over.

    @Sharzam Thanks for that. I'll play through 1 and see how I get along.

    After owning the Wii U for nearly a week I can safely say this is one of the best consoles I've ever owned and being an avid gamer at 37 years old I've pretty much had every console over the last 30 years.

    I was never a big fan of the Wii but the Wii U has grabbed me , it's such an endearing little console , almost like a small puppy jumping in excitement trying to please .

    Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have bought one but at 199 with three games the price was right and with such great games in its catalogue now is the time to buy one imo.

    Perfect as a complement to the PS4/PC as its something completely different !

    Completely agree. Likewise I own a PC, PS3 and 360 and my christmas pressie Wii U has been a pleasure. As a 38 yo it's refreshing to go back to pure fun gaming. In a year of TLOU, Papers Please and GTAV I've had the most fun on SM3DW. Howay and happy new year.

    According to VGCharts though, which has always been questionable. Even that article acknowledges that. Not that it matters :p

    Well it is the only "next gen" console selling in Japan, which has something to do with it...

    However the most important thing to get from that chart IMH is how the 3DS is trouncing every other console out there, and that concerning home consoles the "last gen" PS3 and 360 are still taking top spot despite having 3 new(ish) consoles out there.

    Edit: Actually scratch that: PS4 seems to be cleaning the floor as far as home consoles are concerned; which should really trouble MS as both consoles haven't launched in Japan yet, but we all know XBOX is non-existent there...

    I am also a new Wii U owner and I never had the Wii. I really love the console so far, but with that I am a bit disappointed that the distance from where the Wiimotes work is very lackluster. Anyone else not having problems with it?
    I have a rather large livingroom but it's still within the norms, and the "pointing at the screen" stops working when I sit at my couch. It's rather annoying, anyone know of a way to boost the perfomance? And does the lighting have an effect one way or another.

    Added: I am using the sensor bar that came with the premium pack, and official Wiimotionplus motes. :|

    @Decap I had this. There is a sensitivity setting somewhere you can tweak that fixes it, the default os too short. I cant quite rem where it is and am currently on my own with 3 kids so cant check. It is easily fixed tho.
  • Deleted user 1 January 2014 11:16:32
    Settings - Wii remote and sensor bar - adjust wii remote pointer settings - set it to 5

    Super Mario 3D World is brilliant. It's far, far better than I expected. I've rushed through it and I'm currently on World 8 - I reckon I'll replay the entire game a good few times.

    Edit: sorry @DFawkes :D

    I played Super Mario 3D for the first time last night at a mate's house. Dear god, it's truly magnificent.

    Thing is, I have got both but just not the time to play them. By that I mean Assassin's Creed 4 is eating up my life.

    Taking some time off in January for gaming though. Got 3 extra long weekend to look forward to ;-)
