re: tOfficial Nintendo Wii U information and Nintendo ID's


The best value when buying a Wii U right now (US only)
quote:

Copied and pasted from another comment I made. This is all assuming you're in the US. It's the easiest way to getting everything you need to have a 5-player experience on Wii U (not including classic controllers)

1. Console, 4 Wii Remote Plus controllers, and 4 Nunchucks for $290+tax. Buy a refurbished console from the Nintendo online store for $200, and buy 4 refurbished Wii Remote Plus and Nunchucks for $80. Pay $10 for two day shipping. That's $290 plus tax.[1]

2. Three hard copy games for $100-$120. This Sunday, go to Target and buy Mario Kart and two other Wii U games (they're having a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale). Recommendations include Wind Waker, New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, Super Mario 3D World, DKC Tropical Freeze, and Pikmin 3. That's $110-$120 plus tax. You'd cam also try price matching another store to drop this to $100+tax, but YMMV.

3. Download a free Wii U game. Register Mario Kart through Club Nintendo and get a free download code for either NSMBWiiU, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker or Wii Party U. Also register the other two games you bought.[2]

4. Download a free eShop game or save up your credit. Enroll in the Nintendo DPP to get $5-$6 credit in the eShop. Download a classic game for free (or a few dollars more) the next day.[3]

5. Get two more eShop games or wait for other titles. Register all your coins on Club Nintendo and you can also download two more classic game with those coins (Kirby's Adventure and Mario Party 2 [note Mario Party 2 requires the Classic Controller to play- something I don't have you buying in this guide]). These games change every month and something better might come through in the future.[4]

If you order today, by Tuesday you could have have a Wii U, 4 Wii Remotes, 4 Nunchucks, hard copies of Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, and Wind Waker, and digital copies of Pikmin 3, Super Metroid, Kirby's Adventure and Mario Party 2.
All that for about $400+tax

Considering a new Wii U? Here's one way to get the most out of it.
quote:

In this post I will be strictly talking about buying the Wii U new. With Nintendo pushing people off that fence I thought I'd share how I get more for my coins. Sorry if this sounds obvious but I was surprised by how many people I have talked to who had no idea about these deals.
Nintendo has two great programs I think everyone should be apart of.
-First and most obvious is Club Nintendo ( club.nintendo.com ). Register your games and consoles, get coins, exchange for free stuff.
-Second is the Digital Deluxe Program ( ddp.Nintendo.com ). Only available for folks who have purchased the black 32gb model, this program will give you 10% back on all digital purchases made through Nintendo's Wii U eShop.
Now that we have a quick rundown of the programs out of the way, I'll give an example of what you can get for free with your Wii U purchase.
Let's say you bought the Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle for MSRP 329.99.
Registering your Wii U will get you 160 coins, registering Mario Kart 8 will get you a free DOWNLOADABLE copy of one of the four following games; Wii Party U (reg 49.99), New Super Mario Bros U (reg 59.99), Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD (reg 49.99) or Pikmin 3 (reg 59.99). Registering your free game (as long as your Club Nintendo account is connected to your Wii U) will get you up to another 60 coins.
Now that we about 220 coins. Might I suggest another free game? This month for 200 coins is Kirby Adventure for Wii U or for 250 coins is Mario Party 2 for Wii (playable on Wii U).
Now back to the Digital Deluxe Promotion. We just got a downloadable copy of say Pikmin 3 and Kirby Adventure, yes these count as purchases and even though no money was exchanged you get 10% back. So here's some eShop credit to get ANOTHER free game. I'll take Super Mario Bros on NES or maybe the first Zelda game in honor of the new one coming out.
Hope that helped some future Wii U owners out there. Some promotions are sure to change and might not be in other regions. So take it as you will. Thanks!
TL;DR. Buy a new Wii U, register everything, get free games through Digital Deluxe Promotion and Club Nintendo.

Wii U Helpful hints
Remember to clean your Wii U air vents regularly!
quote:

Just a reminder. Not cleaning them can cause freezing or FPS drops, There are 2 air vents on the side of the console that will suck air in to the fan. I garuntee you that if you look at them now you'll find tons of dust in them, so just take a brush you don't use anymore and brush the dust away. (I recommend an old toothbrush for this).
I've had my Wii U since launch and I just checked it... the amount of dust was ridiculous.

For Miiverse, you may wanna check your setting
quote:

This probably applies to very few of you, but I like to go around and answer questions on Miiverse, and too many times I found out that lots of people have their settings to not allow anyone or only friends to comment on their posts. So when I look at their profile no one has ever commented or answered their questions. And to make it worse, theres almost no way to tell them that thats their settings.
TL;DR: If you never get anyone answering your posts on Miiverse check your settings to make sure others are allowed to.



Wii U Info links
Wii U GameCube Adapter, Controller, and Smash Bundle
quote:

Nintendo unveiled pricing details for a group of Smash Bros. related peripherals today.

The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, which supports up to four GCN controllers (including WaveBird), will be available for $19.99 USD.

Nintendo will also sell Smash Bros. branded GameCube controllers for $29.99 USD each. Lastly, a special Smash Bros. for Wii U bundle, which includes a copy of the game, one adapter, and a GCN controller, will be sold for $99.99 USD.

Wii U Pro Controller dimensions
quote:

The Wii U Pro Controller weighs in at about eight ounces (227 grams), measures about 6.25 inches (15.9 cm) across at its widest point, about 4.75 inches (12 cm) tall and about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) thick including the analog sticks. For a frame of reference, it is slightly thinner than the Xbox 360 Controller, particularly in the grips, though it carries the same basic size and shape

Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance games coming to Wii U virtual console
quote:

The Wii U Virtual Console officially launched yesterday and, so far, includes only NES and Super NES games. Nintendo promises that, in the future, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 titles will be added to the service. When they are released on Wii U, Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance games will feature off-TV play, which means you’ll be able to play them on your GamePad controller – without the need for a TV screen. Let’s hope Nintendo confirms that Nintendo GameCube games will also be added to the Wii U Virtual Console.

A list of Anime, Movies, TV episodes, and more that works on the Wii U browser.

re: tOfficial Nintendo Wii U information and Nintendo ID's


These are the games I own. They are all great. I recommend all of them.

New Super Mario Bros U
New Super Luigi U
Super Mario 3D World
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
NintendoLand
The Wonderful 101
Mario Kart 8
Dr Luigi
NES Remix
NES Remix 2

Also, the wife enjoys the Wii Fit U and even carries the pedometer around.

Seriously all those games are unique and fantastic. The only game I own for Wii U that I wouldn't strongly recommend is Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games

re: tOfficial Nintendo Wii U information and Nintendo ID's


Here's the games I own right now

Zelda Windwaker HD
VC version of The Legend of Zelda
Super Mario 3D World
New Super Mario Bros U
Mario Kart 8
ZombieU
Smash Bros Brawl
VC version of Super Marioworld

Out of those would highly recommend MK8, Super Mario 3D World, and Zelda Windwaker

Windwaker is definitely getting the most playing time right now. would recommend it for people to get as their free game for registering MK8

You wouldn't recommend NSMBU? Multiplayer with the wife/friends is probably the most fun I've had on the system

Any Mario game is amazing on the Wii U. I wish they would come up with another exploration Mario game (Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy-like)

fun game but I think 3D World puts it to shame. I played 3D World first and just started NSMBU last night. Fun but a step below IMO.
