I don't have one yet, but I'm still going to get one eventually.

I meant they've fucked up the marketing. The launch wasn't great. The number of games is rough. The menu system is slow as hell.

I love, but they could have done such a better job with it Eh...

Yeah, the system software needs a redesign and some serious optimization.

I'm still wondering why I bought mine. There still is only one game that I had any interest in (Mario U). I find playing games in that tablet controller incredibly awkward. Third party support will be probably nil again. And even if it's not, I will pick up those games for PS3/PS4.

I am just getting tired of needing a third console just to play Nintendo's in-house games. But when the new Xenoblade game comes out all will be forgiven.

The Rayman Legends demo game is f-ing amazing. I'm excited for Pikmin 3.

I'll agree though, mine hasn't seen a lot of use.

I bought the new Luigi levels for Super Mario Wii U, but it didn't really grab my interest much. Mario Kart and Mario Land should be exciting though.

I'm looking forward to Pikmin 3 and Wind Waker HD. I pretty much buy Nintendo consoles for Mario Kart, Super Mario, and Legend of Zelda.

A WII U has come to the Ryrra and Yobun house hold to allow Pickman 3 game play. Our daughter was very excited to play yesterday.

Odd, that is the only reason that I wanted one... You will have to fess up on weather it is worth the system just for that game.

I bought this on a whim hoping the gf would want to do some co-op:

It's definitely overpriced, but thus far pretty enjoyable. It'd be great if I had a kid I'd think, although they'd probably want more toys. Eh...

Mine's about to get a workout. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD was released today. I'm downloading it now. I'll give you an update about it's HD cell shaded goodness.

Update: It's everything I hoped it would be. It's visually stunning. The gameplay feels exactly like the original. It gives you the option to use the Pro Controller or the Gamepad. Anyone who loves the Xbox 360 controller will love the Wii U Pro Controller. They completely ripped off the design. The screen on the Gamepad shows the inventory, as you'd expect. I'm hoping it will act as the Tingle Tuner later, which would be nice because I never had a GBA to use with the original game. If you have a Wii U, are dying for some Legend of Zelda, and don't mind replaying a classic this is definitely a game to get.

Here is a good review.

I got it as well, and it's pretty awesome. I've been trading back and forth between it and Monster Hunter 3, which I don't completely understand, but can't seem to put down.

The current speed run world record holder for the original Wind Waker took a selfie with these little forest temple bastards.

Just about done with Wind Waker. I'll probably finish it tonight. On another note, Pikmin 3 is beautiful.
