    • Start the game, and it will automatically start the download. You can then either wait for it to finish, or play the game anyway while it downloads in the background.

      Like

        • Are you sure the update has been released in your region?

          I’m in Europe and I’ve done the update. Perhaps it hasn’t been released everywhere yet?

          Or you’ve already got the update and haven’t noticed.

          Failing both of those, I have absolutely no idea…

    That’s very disappointing there’s not a single game for me. That means I’ll have to delay my Wii U p-U-rchase.

  7. Why don’t you all get a ps3 its cheaper and you get third party games earlier than the wiiu (the few third party games made for the wiiu). The games look better and there is more variety. I just don’t understand why you stupid idiots buy the wiiu.
    If your 12 or under maybe the 3ds is a reasonable choice but the only game coming for the 3ds that’s semi adult is CASTLEVANIA and that is a dumbed down side scroller.

      • Here is the DEFINITVE VERSION of the Wii U review since Nintendrones love talking about versions:
        Wii U Review !

        I seperate it into two parts the bad things and the horrible things:

        Bad things:
        1st parties are only rehashing old games
        3rd party games are worse than the originals
        No playback of DVD or BLU-RAY
        Webbrowser from the hell
        Power bricks are bigger than huge
        Slow lagmenus even though it has 1gb ram
        System and gamepad are freezing very often
        Singletouch display doesn’t react sometimes
        No analog triggers
        No achievements
        Too expensive with hidden additional costs
        Wii games look worse
        Accounts are bound to one system
        Low safety in online mode
        Asymetric multiplayer
        =
        Systematic boredom

        And now the horrible things:
        6.2″ Screen with smudgy and blurry 854*480 pixels
        CPU, GPU and RAM much slower than the 360’s
        bulky manufactured parts
        Button layout is a nightmare
        Battery life is up to 3 hours
        Charging process takes 5 hours
        TABLET/iPad rip off gimmick eats up 200% if the processing power
        Update can destroy the OS
        Blue blinking light if death

        Epic Fail/10

        It gets an Epic Fail out of 10 poinst

    You know what? STFU. I’m proud to be a Nintendo and Sony fan. Sony makes the best electronics and platforms. As for Nintendo, they have created some of my favorite childhood games such as Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong Country, Ocarina of Time, ect. I don’t care if you call them showvelware.

    Tip: Play the console FIRST before saying how much it sucks.

  22. Um, nintendo was the first big console. Xbox and PS didn’t come in for a while. N64 was the first real 3D graphics Console. Wii was first for motion control, DS first dual screen, 3DS first 3D portable gameing device. If there was no Nintendo thefe would be no Xbox, No PS3, No (shudder) REAL PC gaming. Atari crashed the video game market, and the NES fixed it. I love Mario, but CoD is fun too, so is Batman Arkham City. And don’t get me started on Half-Life 2. Video games are video games. It doesn’t matter where you play them on, but just remember dissing Nintendo will get you know where. Now I’m going to play some Pokemon Yellow and some Black Ops 2 if you all don’t mind. (ps STEAMBOX RULES)

  23. Haha, I love that awesome banner you have at the top of the website. There are a lot of good games upcoming, but I still feel like Nintendo is a bit lacking in a true Wii U killer-app, although Lego City Undercover comes pretty dang close. I’m surprised to see Pikmin 3 delayed so far, and I can’t wait for lots of their upcoming 3DS releases, I think Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Fire Emblem: Awakening and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will go a long way towards moving more 3DS units. I think each one of those is as system seller.

  25. When will Animal Crossing: New Leaf be released? It isn’t fair for the long time animal crossing fans to keep having to wait for the release date to finally be announced and then being changed. We need a solid release date, we already had to wait a year since the last “release date” then a couple months before it was going to be released the date got changed.
