Those are my favorite games on WiiU. My advice? Wait to see if NX is backwards compatible with WiiU. If it is and it's got a decent launch lineup, jump on those games then. If not, hope WiiU drops heavily in price or an emulator happens I guess.

Goddammit Nintendo stop selling your old games at full price. Start dropping the price of the games after they have been out for a year regardless of how well its selling.

>>322798954
Still bullshit. If they drop prices, they can get even more copies sold because not everybody wants to pay $60 for a game, they rather pirate the damn game instead of paying $60.
>>
>>322798954

Actually, that's a holdover dates back to price fixing policies that Nintendo has upheld since their monopoly back in the late 80's and early 90's. How it's still in place I don't know but it is.

I got a question about the Wii U. My brother bought one for his 10 year old this christmas. Included in the pack was splatoon. They didn't set up an online account because he's played online games on PC/Xbox/Playstation. Now the kid wants one to play splatoon. Says he can only do training offline.

Is the kid full of shit, can you do more offline then just training?
Is splatoon safe online? Or are there people yelling shitcunt everwhere? I know the game has paint and shit, can you draw dicks everywhere?
>>
I just shelled out nearly 200$ to get it back from nintendo repair center, so you can bet your ass I fucking have a damn wii U.

>>322799467
you can play story mode and 2 player mode offline.

>>322799467

Splatoon is basically a paperweight without online but it has no voice chat so you're relatively safe. Worst you'll find is faintly suggestive Miiverse posts that make it past Nintendo's filter.

Unfortunately.
Can't say anything on mic and can't hardly draw with the paint, the only user-made content are miiverse posts, but they are heavily moderated and can be desactivated entirely.
>>
>>322799572
So I'm guessing the story mode is the training he said? Is it just a short little thing? And that 2 player offline, are there no bots or anything? Is the game basically pointless without being online? They bought the whole thing because of that lego dimension game. fucking kid got over 200 bucks worth of those little add-on packs alone. Bastard loves lego.
>>
>>322788808
Don't want to pay $50-$60 for games over a year old.
Nintendo does pretty much everything they can to help out scalpers.
Use anti consumer practices in every way.
Competition is lowering their console prices recently, but Wii U hasn't gone down and getting too close to competition's prices.
I want a wii u for games like Bayonetta, W101, Smash, Mario Maker, etc. but Nintendo is just too much bullshit.
Not to mention NX is right around the corner so investing in a soon to be dead, and hopefully cheaper, console isn't smart.
>>
I've owned one since August 2013 and it really wasn't entirely worth it. Even Smash sucks because there's nothing to do sinle player wise besides event matches and collect trophies with memes in the descriptions.

This. I have a lot of WiiU games and I'd rather have it so I can load them off the HDD.

(It's honestly Nintendo's fault because they don't put anything digital on offer, and when they do its usually way more expensive than the retail option at the time anyway)

Bought one at launch and it's easily the worst console I've ever owned. Hoping the upcoming homebrew hack fixes that somewhat. At least it should save me a few bucks for the final few games that release for it
>>
>>322800453

Last time I went to a midnight release was A Link Between Worlds, which was nothing like you'd expect because it also launched the same day as Xbone. I guess the most notable one I ever went to was Brawl's, which I recall being fun but I was 16 at the time or some shit.

I tried finding a new game to buy on the eShop last. The amount of garbage indie games cluttering up the store was disgusting and the prices for them were even worse. I really with there were actually written reviews and not just that star bullshit.

First party Nintendo titles are literally the only reason to own a Wii U so they are never going to drop the price on their games. You either buy them or let your console become a 300 dollar paper weight.
I'm trying to find cheaper used copies online but the inflated prices are upheld by Jewish second hand Nintendo fanboys. Most of them are offering just a 5 dollar discount from the GameStop/EB Games used price.
>>
>>322788808
Because if I had enough money to buy a Wii U and 20+ games I would build a PC

I have one, but it has a ton of flaws. For example: Not being able to launch a game without patching. That's retarded, since the console comes with 8GB or 32GB. What this means is, you can't bring your console somewhere else without an external drive and expect to be able to play your games. And even then, if there's no internet connection there you also can't expect to play your games.

The library is also weak. Bayonetta 2 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze are great, and Mario Kart and Smash are good entries too, but other than that there's just not enough to play.

The console also arrived dead on arrival at first (can't connect the gamepad or controllers) but I swear I'm not letting that cloud my judgement.

No. On boot, the game will say "this game requires an update to play" even if you have no internet connection. Happened to me when I was trying to play some Sm4sh in a remote shack. Apparently the console downloads an up-to-date list of versions or something.
