    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    Still working on collecting all the gold coins in NSMB-U, only scratched the surface of NSLB-U, just about to the bonus worlds in 3D World and stuck on the Owl boss in DKTF:mad:.. But right now MK8 eats up all my play time. :p Must unlock all gold kart parts :D The wife is digging Pikmin 3...

    The Wii U is done

    I think you mean billions of YEN? Last I saw they could continue burning money, at the current rate, and still have cash in the bank for a 100 years or so? :o

    The Wii U is done

    I think word of mouth will start spreading Wii-U's like wildfire after MK8. Everyone I've mentioned it too/shown, has asked: "so this is on the.. wait.. new nintendo thing? Wii what?" Then they start talking about budgeting one in asap. :D IE, They never realized there was even a new...

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    The big guys are great if you can get out in front, then build up some distance so blue shell recovery is possible. In the top speed cart+10 coins, they are insanely fast. In n64 I played Wario just cuz, Mk wii I did dry bones/troopa, now back to Wario :D

    Wii U June system update out now

    I think the're running the quick launch menu right off the gamepad hardware, like the TV remote. I'm impressed. Just wish you could "pin" items to it instead of it just going by most frequently used. People should post there quick launch selections. Would be interesting :D Edit: Guess...

    Wii U June system update out now

    The home menu seems to come up/drop away allot smoother/faster now in game. Perfect timing to coincide this with the MK8 surge, along with the Pikmin 3 update. Its like Nintendo has a strategy or something :D Edit: First power on after the initial setup/intro. Holy smokes that's fast, as...

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    Both my wife and brothers girlfriend prefer using the motion wii-mote steering. My wife does really well with it (she's won the majority of races we've played together so far).. I can't see how :eek: The free game codes aren't tied to the club Nintendo account, (I traded my physical copy of...

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    The eShop was fast/responsive last night along with Club Nintendo. But now Club Nintendo is jammed hard. Have been helping my brother setup a CN account and get a Pikmin 3 key for the last two hours or so :( I'd take it as a good sign for retail sales, all those people trying to...

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    Another excellent eShop experience here. Downloaded in about an hour, was getting excited at <99%.. Then it had to install :eek: (took another few mins). Played through 3 of the top cups last night on a 1080p dlp pj/ 110" Vutec silverstar screen. Its everything I wanted, graphics are...

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    I don't have WW or Pikmin3 yet. Going to trade my physical copy of Mario U for my brothers DL code (use it on mario U) then use my code on WW. Will be almost all digital then :D I'm sure there will be a flood of Pikmin3/WW/Mario U keys on ebay/forms after release :D Wonder how hard it would...

    The Wii U is done

    If you haven't experienced Wii games running on Dolphin (screen shots) I'd recommend it. Mario Kart Wii looks fantastic in full HD. I own 2 Wii's but only play MK Wii on PC. The Wii's still get plenty of love with retro/nes/snes games though. - Can't wait for real HD MK, with art/models...

    The Wii U is done

    Wonder if this means they'll start selling used Wii-U's. Best-buy's used games have been great deals so far (make up most of my 3ds library), and I've always wanted a white Wii-U.. For the kids room.. :D vWii modded U deluxe is daddies nostalgia box. :p Mariokart 8 lan party anyone? :cool:

    Wii U’s New Mario Kart 8 Trailer

    The graphics are amazing, try finding another game with a similar art style that looks that good. The classic track thing isn't as bad as it sounds, other than the reminiscent layout and theme they may as well be all new. Mario Kart 8 - Retro Track Comparison - Eurogamer

    Mario Kart 8 - Amazon Sell Out

    Pretty sure they've all had maps/overlays indicating racers locations. No comment on possible AI cheating.. The MK's are some of the most accessible games ever, yet have just enough depth to keep them fun.

    Evolve PS4 gameplay

    Played the hell out of Giants back in the day. Always wanted to get ahold of the promotional Elsa Geforce 3 Enhanced version. The Monster even kinda looks like a Kabuto.. Nostalgia high.. Hope its as good as it looks. Edit: Ah snap, never saw the last patch, 1.5, for Giants. These guys...

    Evolve PS4 gameplay

    Looks like it would be killer for a lan party. Its like Giants: Citizen Kabuto with a Gears of war paint job and TF2 Mechanics :D Not 100% sure but looked like there was some shared footage between the PS4 and PC demo.. Wonder what hardware it was actually running on.

    The Wii U is done

    I'd define done as no more games being released. The Wii U is far from done. It may not be a mass market smash like the Wii or PS360 but those were driven by garbage mass appeal games anyway. The Jaguar sold <250k :confused: But hey, I hear resogun is pretty sweet. Anyway, off to play...

    Razer peripherals 50% off 1 Day only!

    The oldest one still works but needs disassembly/cleaning every now and then, or it starts double clicking (first gen). Have several Explorer 3.0's that still work fine, but the resolution is so low.. yeach..

    Scratch Build - Slim Aluminum Mini ITX SteamBox (formerly "m3a2")

    I bow before your fabrication skills, I could make one without an optical drive.... But it would be made out of cardboard.. or maybe 2x4's :eek:

    [USED] Ultimate File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID $299+

    The 2xxx can be used in dual socket systems, the 8xxx can be used in up to 8 socket systems. So for us there's no functional difference. I think any socket F should work, but not sure about specific bios revisions/stepping support.
