      1. I got my wiiu 4 hours ago. It comes out at Midnight GMT , but I got it early :P.


        I must be the first person ever to unbox the ZombiU bundle wiiu! LOL!!!!!!!

        All those suckers qewing up whilst I sit here with My street date broken wiiu !!


        1. Really? I actually just got my first request today. You can try again or tell me your name on there. Actually don’t tell me your name here. The moment I said my name up there someone went and flagged it on Miiverse.

  1. Yeah, that made me pretty sad. I use NintenDom as my ID for most things, but I had to make it N1ntenD0m when I set up my Wii U. It’s funny that I can use it for my PSN ID and not my Nintendo one. Ah well. I’ll live.

  2. Can you put the number 0 instead of the letter O.
    Nintendo ———–>Nintend0
    or any sign that looks near identical to the letter O?

  3. I noticed this cuz it wouldn’t let me use Nintendo Reviewer as my network ID. So to anyone who watches my reviews, my ID is NintndoReviewr.

    So, I guess my usual user name NintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendoNintendo won’t work?

  10. What the fuck? Screw you Nintendo. Now I can’t call myself Nintendofan204… What should I call myself now? Fuck… What the hell is the point in doing this? Nintendo is really pissing me off today…

  11. Thanks for any other excellent post. The place else could anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
