    Nintendo Land is the epitome of Nintendo's ability to make the small stuff worlds more fun than it should be. Legend of Zelda Battle Quest should not have me playing for hours on end and marveling at how they recreated the Zelda aesthetics as kitschy theme park attractions, and yet here we are.

    Agreed. The Multiplayer games are amazingly fun, as are a few of the single player games.

    I refuse to even try Octopus dance, though. Rhythm games and I don't mix.

    I haven't had a chance to play with anyone else yet. I'll have to gather a few of my friends and try them out. I'd imagine that would be quite entertaining, if Nintendo's good at one thing it's definitely local multiplayer.

    I love the way that they gave every attraction a different style that seems somehow universal. From Zelda being made from chiefly yarn and such, Metroid looking like a classic Arcade game, the awesome tinny look of Pikmin, and the silly outfits in all the competitive games, I can't get over how glorious each rendition of some of Nintendo's staple franchises look. These games can get extremely tough, too. I'm talking, like, 80's retro tier difficulty, and I love it. Like Clamps, I only recently but DKCC, but I had the happy accident of flipping off the top tier above Rosaline and landing on top of the flag to win. I still have no idea how to get on to the second to last platform. Despite being the only game I own for it, Nintendo Land has kept me effectively glued to my Wii U since I got it 2 weeks ago.

    EDIT: @Hydrohs, you got that right. The games had my friends and me literally screaming at each other at the end of every match, and I loved every moment of it.
    I have claimed Joltik. Deal with it.

    Nintendo Land really is an amazingly fun game to play. There are some I've not yet played because I don't have Motion Plus and am too poor to buy at the moment, but those I have played are brilliant.

    Octopus Dance is the most addictive game in there. I lack the patience to play Takamaru's game (the name of which I don't remember currently and am too lazy to Google), but even that is great fun.

    Most importantly for me, as in many games, the music is so incredible. Oh, I salivate simply thinking about the Nazo no Murasame-jo music redone as it has been.

    I was surprised at how many hours straight I spent on Donkey Kong's Crash Course and Zelda Battle Quest. I spent a significant amount of time just trying to master Level 8 of Battle Quest. I have that place pretty much burned into my memory now...

    As for Nintendo Land, again, I barely touch it and I just find it's there to demonstrate the tech. As for the games, they're fun but get boring quickly. Yeah, I've been more on my 3DS lately (in terms of gaming).

    While I don't own NintendoLand, I've played it several times at my videogame club, and we go nuts. It's just so much fun to play. The Multiplayer games are fun everyone, even those watching. We usually trade off and there's no real arguments amongst players. I remember how long it took us to complete the Zelda Battle Quest, and then realizing we unlocked the challenge mode.

    I don't have high expectations for Nintendo Land, but I would very much like to play a demo of it before I begin bashing the hell out of it. It's a shame the only demo the Wii U has is Rayman Legends.

    So what's everyone thoughts on "The U" itself? Been away for awhile and wasn't here during launch. I've been hearing on all other blogs that the Wii U has turned out to be surprisingly inferior. Not to say it won't be a smash hit, mind you. I'm sure it'll be just a smash hit with the party and casual crowd as the Wii did. This was supposed to be a successor to the Wii, right.

    Now, as for the games themselves, I feel there's a lot to be desired. Nothing really catches my interest. Mario U is nothing more but another rehash of a format that never actually caught itself. All it's depended on is being a Mario game series. I'll admit, it looks gorgeous though. Too bad I don't own an HD Tv. Nintendo Land is something I have no comment. Nintendo Land represents what I dislike about the Wii.

    The only thing I could ask for, right now, is better integration with the 3DS. Otherwise, the Wii U is a fantastic piece of hardware.

    The Amazon app is up and running. Nothing of interest in my scope but just sharing the news.

    Nintendoland is loads of fun. The Mario Chase game is a blast with even just two people. Those Yoshi carts will drive you insane if you are Mario. All the games I've played in multiplayer have been a blast, and competing with my brother to see who could do better on Crash Course was great. Now if only either of us could beat the first level.

    You dislike insanely, perhaps even unexpectedly fun software that integrates nearly all facets of the system's proprietary controller and its capabilities?

    It and the other streaming media apps have been up for a few weeks now.

    Yes. Hulu Plus, Amazon and YouTube all went live within a week of the North American launch.

    You will definitely enjoy it.

    The Wii U is on equal footing with the other two consoles right now. Who knows what will happen when the next-gen consoles come out, but for a year or two at least you're gonna have the same stuff.

    You're so wrong, play it and you'll see.

    If I didn't have to play Nintendo Land as a stupid "Mii" character, I'd probably not mind so much. It's just like that horrid "Bah! Bah!" thing from the NSMB series. Just a personal preference.

    I wasn't able to use Amazon a week ago wonder what was happening there. Speaking of which, YouTube no longer works in the browser as reported from many (not that this is too much of a bad thing). Also, foreign ads!

    Not too much of a bad thing? How?

    The Youtube app is horrendous, you can't even watch things on the gamepad!

    I meant in general at least you can still watch videos but you're oh so correct. Worst of all, it doesn't show the videos of the latest channel you subscribed to. I'm missing Stan's Rants and I'm too lazy to use my laptop!

    EDIT: I was able to play a YouTube video from another site. For those of you that want to test it out, here's an article from Siliconera featuring a video which is promoting the shiny Genesect that knows Extremespeed that will star in the upcoming movie. Thank goodness it got the boot to Ubers.

    Thriller. Is this really an issue?

    And given what Nintendo Land is meant to be - an amusement park with attractions based on Nintendo franchises, a concept which includes each attraction outfitting your Mii in the game in garb appropriate for each franchise - what sort of player character would you have had them implement?

    The obvious answer is a Ditto, that way there would have been Pokemon representation, or Kirby, and have him inhale a hat for the franchise.

    Just throwing my opinion out there - I'm not getting the Wii U before E3 2013. I want to see if Sony unveils the PS4 or (unlikely) Microsoft unveils the Xbox 720. If not, then the Wii U is mine all mine.
