I really liked the controller, probably my favorite. I still boot mine up occasionally to play Splatoon
How are Splatoon games and community on WiiU now that even 2 has came at the end of its content update life?
I could get a copy for cheap. Had to sell mine because Nintendo games didn't work with my router back then, but now I could play without any effort.
not 750 but there are still a surprising amount of players on splatoon 1. Mostly Japanese players and more hackers than usual but you can still easily find a match.
Still play Splatoon on a daily basis. Also playing Breath of the Wild on Master Mode and obtaining the Platinum medals for the missions on Pikmin 3.
Having lots of fun, but man does it consume time. After getting done with Pikmin I plan to move to Mario Kart and after getting done with Zelda, Fatal Frame is next
I can't stop playing Xenoblade Chronicles X, I must've sunk 500~ hours into it across a couple of playthroughs. Creating your own build, grinding on Tyrants to find the perfect piece of equipment to take out a challenging endgame boss, making a hangar of custom skells. Or just goofing off and exploring the world. I love this game so much, it singlehandedly justified my WiiU purchase.
I wonder if they will ever continue with the story. Considering that Xenoblade Cronicles 2 is a stand alone title it seems like they abandonned Xenoblade X and want to pretend it never happened. I find that very sad, I want to continue the story, I love Xenoblade Chronicles .
We can hope for a Definitive Edition on Switch with added story content like they're doing with the first Wii game. I still have to delve into X, could be my next game after I've finished Persona 5 on PS3. I also want to tackle New Super Mario Bros U, bought it for dirt cheap a couple weeks ago.
I never had a WiiU, but I really want Splatoon 3.
I love the cute squids
It's funny to think that I've missed every console generation after the gamecube and the wiiU was the only console I was ever interested in buying if I had the money. For some reason, I find it more attractive than the switch even though the switch is a logical progression of the idea. What hurt this console the most was definitely the name.
I think of the Wii U as kind of a home version of the DS. There are some kinds of games that just are much easier to play or only possible with two screens.
mostly use mine for Wii and GC
So as promised I finished the platinum medals for Pikmin 3 and the only thing left in BotW is find like 350 or so Koroks and defeating a couple of rock bosses+ Gsushi roll, won't move until the file has 100% but haven't been playing that one lately.
And also installed Mario Kart 8 and have been having fun there, but it pains me to say the Deluxe version for the switch seems the definitive version without a doubt.
Will try Axiom Verge soon, seems interesting.
I've been using my Wii U mostly as an emulation machine.
Lately I've mostly been playing the N64 Zeldas! Ocarina was good, tho the early game was a bit boring, and Majora seems very promising so far!
If you get all the DLCs for MK8 on WiiU you should have the same experience. Or is there additional content?>>994
Maaan I miss the Virtual Console. The New NES/SNES Online is such a step down in terms of content. They must have lost lots of publishing rights with the new generation since all they publish on Switch is minor publishers like Jaleco. WiiU VC had everything, even Turbografx games! Probably with the rise of mini consoles everyone thought it was better to make their own collections/thing and to ditch Nintendo's service.
Online emulator play on Switch is nice though I must admit.
Even with all the DLCs there's some big differences between games. Among them is the revamped battle mode, the 200cc time trials, the extra characters such as king boo, inklings, etc. and the comeback of the double item box and also the ability to carry 2 items at the same time. Regarding items there's the feather and the boo which aren't in the WiiU version and there's also the difference in stats between karts and characters, so instead of there being like 8 different "tiers" or so there's like 13 on the switch.
And there's the thing known as firehopping or something like that which seemingly was removed on the switch so even the way to move through stages might have been modified a bit. So yeah, they knew what to add to make it worth it to buy it on the switch.
