Forums - Gaming Discussion - So I bought a Wii U...

I'm setting it up at the moment. I like the gamepad so far, it's refreshing. But the update time is fucking TERRIBLE! This is the second update i'm sitting through T.T

 

So I got the Skylander's bundle for a deal. Anyone actually tried Skylanders? Because I have zero interest and i'm thinking of throwing in the bin.

Congratz on getting one! Why'd you get the Skylander's bundle then? xD

Current Consoles: Gaming PC, Wii U, 3DS

Congrats. Yeah, the first update was quite long on launch day, I imagine its way longer now. Trade in Skylanders and put the money towards a game you want. I would recommend Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, ZombiU or Pikmin 3. Rayman Legends also unless youve played it on another console.

Yeah, the update time is pretty terrible.

Did you get Mario Kart 8 yet? I'd say that's a must buy for the system.

You'd best just try it if you've already got it in your hands! Tell us how it goes.
Anyways, hope you enjoy your WiiU! That first update is slow for sure, but with the help of updates and the quick start menu I haven't had much problem with slowness since.

Skylanders is a kids game. Very low difficulty, very basic level design and a story with jokes that are so lame that only kids would find them funny.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

Because for some reason it was cheaper than buying the console without it.

I guess i'll have to do that. It even came with figures and a portal looking thing lol Can I trade those in too?



Don't throw Skylanders away. Do what I did and sell the figurines on eBay. You'll get most, if not all, of your money back that way. Apparently the squid one is rare or something?
