The perils of the Hype Train…

That's going to be tough. I want to pay my rent next payday, which is on the 16th. That will leave me less than a day if I go on the following payday.

TOUGH LIFE DECISIONS! CHOOSE NOW.

And yeah, so the WiiU can connect to your TV through HDMI or composite cables, or both, so...

Where did you think the audio was going to come from?

Good point, but the audio all coming through there would be so ridiculous.

The game pad does have its own audio output that you can adjust on a slider. It also has a headphone jack available.

Well good. I have a headphone port for my TV, which is how I hear my games and chat nowadays on my other consoles. Looks like might be able to get a Mario Kart 8 bundle. Hopefully they don't run out in my area. I look forward to be playing with you guys at the end of the month.

As for the free select game. I searched and saw an article of what game I could download. LoZ: Windwaker HD is one of those select titles, correct? I'll very likely get that.

Damn, I'm so jealous Howie.

I am getting a new sofa though! Very Happy



Small as fuck picture, but isn't it nice oooOOOooo!

Anyway, I don't have a Wii U. My next purchase will be PS4. I mean, I may get it for my birthday. MAYBE.

Anika, get Donkey Kong?

I was under the impression you had a Wii or Wii U. Anyone know if I played Wii games on my Wii U, would I be able to play with other Wii players?

I have a Wii.

And I think you can play Wii games on a Wii U...via a "Wii Mode". But not sure if it plays discs or if you just have the availability for download.

I already know it's backwards compatible with Wii games, but that's not what I asked. Wink

Yes, you should, UghRochester.

MattAY, you mean for the free game? The options are New SMB U, Zelda WW HD, WiiU Party, Pikmin 3.

WHAT DO.

Also, that sofa looks fucking LUSH. Is that my bed when I go over, then?

New furniture looks boss, MattAY.

Regarding free game on Wii U, I would recommend The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD.

Have you played Windwaker HD, Sightless? I haven't and that's going to by my game I select once I get my Wii U. Can't wait to make Let's Play of those.

I haven't played it. I keep thinking about it... If I don't make up my mind for reals in the next couple of weeks, I'll just get WW probs, because it's different and pretty.

When does SMB come out? Christmas? I would totally get that! Otherwise you'll be forking out full retail price for it when it first comes out (if you want it that badly). Wind Waker HD is about £30 for me. So makes sense finance-wise...you just dont get the game NOW!

MattAY, are you talking about SSB? I meant new super mario bros U. :F

My brother just found out a couple of his friends play a few games on the WiiU together, so now (after however long) he finally wants in on it... Which means my playing time goes down. I'll just have to tell his work to keep giving him evening shifts...

While playing with Anika and GL would be fun, these are just added bonuses as to why I want a Wii U. Oh and Amazon has Super Smash Bros listed for Dec 31st 2014, so who knows when that will come out?
