10 things you must do on your Wii U

Postby JoeOdranDoran » 25 Dec 2012, 15:05

My toilet is quite near my living room, so my number 1 thing to try will be playing Nintendo Land whilst on the John.

I'm so close to the dream of all gamers everywhere!

I don't really the see the HD when playing Xenoblade Chronicles... it just looks as fuzzy as it did before on the Wii (and YES I am streaming though the HDMI cable).

Funnily enough, it's my Number One and Number Two to do when I get my Wii U.

It's been out on Steam for about a year

In fact, I'm making this post right now on the Wii U. I got one yesterday, and I adore it. I love how it isn't just about the games - I love how I can go on the internet and/or YouTube flawlessly, as I don't have an iPhone or anything.

Lol I was given an IOU for a Wii U, as there are no games that interest me out yet...roll on E3!
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

Interesting, might try the wii games in HD thing. Does anyone know if wii games can be played with the gamepad, or do you have to use wii remotes? Also, my NNID is Ganonsmurf if anyone wants to add me

Which is why they said like, they were talking about indie games being downloadable.
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

I wonder what Animal Crossing: Let's Go To City looks like in HD and if the game works with the Wii U Gamepad since the game could only be played with the Wii-Mote with the Wii.

While I agree with the article on the site and in the mag that the internet browser is indeed a huge improvement and a joy to use, the comment about Apple was a bit uncalled for. Flash is outdated and has been for a while and iOS is fully HTML 5 compatible too. In fact videos that don't play on the iPad also don't play on the Wii U. However, in this day and age it's once in a blue moon I'll come across content that doesn't work right on the iPad and that's just laziness on the particular website's part as they're not up to date themselves. Same with Wii U, there'll be very little that doesn't work, but there was no need for the comment as iOS is HTML 5 compatible too.

I love my new Wii U, but the iPad is my mobile gaming platform of choice, and that's after years of owning DSs, but I sold my 3DS after a few weeks as the 3D stopped working for my eyes :S (and don't even get me started on that price drop afterwards) but even so, my iPad has completely replaced my DS... but then again it's replaced my laptop and desktop too lol! Don't get me wrong though, love Nintendo and after not having a home console for over a year and playing just on the 'Pad, it took the Wii U to bring me back to the fold :) and I'm loving it!
