Looking at buying a Wii U. If I buy one without a gamepad, what am I looking at to procure a gamepad? On ebay the lowest is like $120. It seems like my best bet would be just to buy a refurb'd one from Nintendo for $200.

Refurb is the way to go

I just earned enough coins on Club Nintendo to get Star Fox 64, because it is the best game ever made. As I went to redeem it, I noticed:

Requires the Classic Controller™ (sold separately).

I never owned the Wii, so I'm not exactly sure which one this is. Will the Wii U Pro Controller work?

Three stickies for the gaming board that encompases the three main forms of gaming: PC, playstation/Microsoft/steam, and Nintendo

There's no reason for there to be a separate thread for IDs. It should be merged with the OP of that thread. If you want a special news thread, then you don't need a stickied thread.

I bought a Wii U around the time Super Mario Kart 8 came out and have been gone for around two months.

The only games I own are:

SMK8
Super Mario/Luigi Bros U

What are the other key games to buy?

The Wii U is actually worth buying now
quote:

My colleague Dieter Bohn is wondering whether to buy a Wii U. I'm here to convince him that he should.

Nintendo's Wii U launch was the company's biggest disaster since the Virtual Boy. The console was slow and clunky, with very little to play upon release and a barren line-up of games for the next several months. It's a cliché, but after I bought mine upon its Japanese launch, it quite literally gathered dust for the best part of a year. (It does that pretty easily because it is glossy and black.)

Just look at the chart above — the Wii U has posted terrible retail figures ever since its initial burst of sales, and there's little chance of that changing even with blockbuster titles like Mario Kart 8. Many third-party publishers have abandoned the platform. Nintendo seems to have no idea how to make use of the tablet-style GamePad controller, meaning the Wii U's unique selling point has mostly been a wash.

But.

WE'RE WAY PAST THE TIPPING POINT WHERE THERE'S ENOUGH TO PLAY ON THE WII U

The Wii U is actually a great buy today. For my money, we're way past the tipping point where there's enough to play. Will it last as long as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One? No. Will you get more use out of it than either of those two consoles if you buy one today? Maybe! I like my PS4 a lot, and I'll be picking up a Japanese Xbox One next week because no one else will and I feel bad for it, but neither has much in the way of must-have, exclusive games that you can actually play right now.

Nintendo, on the other hand, is finally bringing its A games. Super Mario 3D World is one of the most stunning entries in the entire Super Mario series — a gorgeous, intense cornucopia of creativity, with countless amazing ideas that get used once and thrown away. Mario Kart 8 is the best Mario Kart ever made; the balance between skill and chaos has been tuned to perfection, and the track design is phenomenal. Both NES Remix games recontextualize Nintendo's ’80s catalog in a fun, fresh way. The next Super Smash Bros. is out soon and will no doubt continue to be the wildest mashup in video games. And just as PS3 ports The Last of Us Remastered and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition are some of the most impressive releases on the PS4, Nintendo's gorgeous remake of my favorite Legend of Zelda game — The Wind Waker — is pretty compelling too.
