Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

I just got back from Best Buy's midnight release for the Wii U and was wondering if you guys picked one up as well. If so, post a pic!

Just like the 3DS, it's region locked.
Shame. Was actually going to buy one.

There's no reason at all for region lock in this day and age. The PS3 is entirely region unlocked and a good 50% of the games on the 360 are unlocked, too. The DS was region unlocked for years until Nintendo decided to derp again and lock the DSi (protip: this is the reason i still have a lite).

Nintendo can go fuck themselves as far as i'm concerned, i'll not be buying their products until they're either region unlocked or someone develops a cart/softmod to get around it. I'll be damned if i'll wait another 2 bloody months after the american release for a pokemon game. I still have an american copy of Diamond sitting in my lite, and i finished it TWICE before nintendo deigned to release it in Aus for $10 more than i paid for it, even with postage.

ZombiU US: $55
ZombiU AU: $90

Tekken US: $50
Tekken AU: $80

From what i've been hearing, the first company to make an extended battery for the pad will be millionaires.

I don't know about that. I haven't had any problem with the battery life. Maybe because I'm not playing for five hours at a time, but I always just put it back on the dock when I'm done.

three hours, whatever, my point was that I haven't had a problem. Is the plug in too far from where you sit Edd?

If you think I am going to plug my controller through the wall and play, especially since there is no USB connector you're fucking nuts

My couch is about 5 feet from my TV and I have the chord running underneath the TV stand to the coffee table where the gamepad doc is. I forgot that you live in a mansion and have a 200" TV that you sit 20 feet from.

The Wii U is finally out today here in Australia. I'll be picking mine up after work. Hell, I went to the gym on my lunch break so I wouldn't have to go after work. How sad is that?

Once I get the Wii U - I'll be playing Hitman: Absolution until the Wii U downloads its Goddamn 5GB update...

Got one! Might have to give it back though Sad
Downloading Trine 2



Cons:
dat update ... FUCK!
took forever to get the game pad to talk to the console
downloading ANYTHING is taking forever. You'd think with no eithernet port they'd make this thing a bit more robust... but I'm looking forward to it.

Why would you have to give it back? Did Nintendo send it to the office?

^exactly

They broadcasted their last event (This morning) on a Wii U, and I made a stink about not being able to find one b/c its sold out so they sent it. Now that the event is over... now we play the waiting game..

I wonder if you'll actually have to send it back, or if they'll be too preoccupied trying to hire those big cat mining trucks to move their piles of money around.

So disappointed with Nintendo. I had a play of ZombiU the other day and it's pretty awesome. Would totally buy one if they were region free.
What power adapter do they use? It it an internal PSU or a power brick? Because if i could buy a US one and just import all my games i still might go for one when they start popping up used.
