Don't worry, Alan Smithee will treasure it.

Time to unsticky this thing and stick the Switch thread? Time to let it die, just like Nintendo did.

Re: The Wii U: From "cool" Sony to evil Nintendo

Okay, figured it out. Here's my list:

The Heavyweights
82:52 - Pikmin 3
67:27 - Super Mario 3D World:
33:13 - LEGO: Jurassic World
32:55 - New Super Mario Bros. U
31:58 - Mario Kart 8
28:47 - Rayman: Legends
========
Total 277 hrs.

The Middleweights
13:17 - Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed
13:14 - DuckTales: Remastered
========
Total 26.5 hrs

The Lightweights
8:54 - Yoshi's Wooly World
6:51 - Splatoon
5:54 - LEGO: Dimensions
3:42 - Nintendoland
3:37 - Kirby & the Rainbow Curse
3:35 - NES Remix
2:33 - Super Mario Maker
1:14 - F-Zero (SNES)
========
Total 36.3 hrs.

The Scrubs (under an hour)
Legend of Zelda
Donkey Kong
Super Mario World
Balloon Fight
Dr. Luigi
Punch-Out
Just Dance: 2016 (kids played)

Unplayed Pile

Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Grand Total: 340 hrs. or 14.1 days.

That's not so hot. I probably spent more time in any given Halo game than all those combined. Only two games in the unplayed pile. That's actually really low.

Re: The Wii U: From "cool" Sony to evil Nintendo

Is there a WiiU version of Super Mario Allstars or do I just buy the Wii version and play it through the shell on the WiiU?

Yeah, we used to have the SNES version, but we dumped a lot of consoles a few years back and we haven't replaced all the games.

Would you all recommend the disc version or just buying the games through the VC?

If you're still interested, a refurbished console is going for $175.

Re: The Wii U: From "cool" Sony to evil Nintendo

Hey guys, random Wii U question.

I just bought one for $100, and it included BOTW and Windwaker downloaded on it. But the previous owner’s Nintendo ID is still logged in. If I log in with mine, do I lose the games?

Shouldn't. Games are locked to hardware and not user IDs - Nintendo has gotten all sorts of shit for this over the years.

You can call them if you want to be 100% sure.

Big caveat there... the license is on the console but still tied to the user. So if the guy decides to remove his account from your console those games are gone. For example:

https://www.reddit.com/r/wiiu/commen...p8&sh=aa0c79ea

It's like the worst of all worlds, the way Nintendo handles these licenses.

Nintendo of America is no longer offering replacement batteries for the Wii U GamePad at their online store:

I just wish the battery of the controller didn't run out when not in use.
