    Very nice deals going on at Best Buy right now. If you haven’t already picked up Link Between Worlds, go get it. Its amazing! Seeing what a great game it turned out to be on the 3DS gets me extremely excited for Zelda U!

    The Wiiu and 3DS are both so good… I pity the fool who says bad things about Nintendo…. Ii got a PS4 at launch and so far, the Wiiu is much more fun. I love just switching the gamepad on when I’m in bed and browsing Miiverse and Eshop and playing some 3D world or Pikmin 3 or what ever. Or even using the Wiiu’s browser which is on par with a PC’s, multiple tabs and everything!.

    My pS4 really is just a glorified PS3 with no games :/ . That will change and spectacular games will come to PS4! But wit the likes of Smash and Mario Kart 8, X , Bayonetta 2 , Donkey Kong coming to my Wiiu, the PS4 will serve as my secondary home console…

    I absolutely ADORE my Wiiu and I won’t say yet as its too early, but I think its the best console I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned them all.

      Agreed, if only Nintendo would let the public know what they have. Then Wii U would start getting the attention it deserves.

      • Nintedward

        Yep! The most frustrating thing is that loads of people have in their minds that the wiiu is crap :S. It’s such a joy to own and I wish for each individual persons benefit that they would realize how good it is.

        It really is a joy to own and I’ve switched it on most days since I got it on day 1. People seem to be in doubt about its graphical capabilities but one look at 3D world or Pikmin 3 on your tv immediately proves it does lots of things that the previous generation can’t…

          Had the 64 loved it. Bought game cube, sold it after a couple weeks, uninterested in Wii … .I LOVE THE Wii U …. and agree it’s a shame the system isn’t getting the sales / popularity it deserves.

          I think the problem with ps4 and xbox one fanboys is that they are looking in the wrong place for the best graphics, you might aswell get a gaming pc if graphics are important :-/

          I like how the wii u is being different from the competition, it includes a controller than can do remote play and do easy typing and clears the tv screen from HUDS in favor of putting them on the gamepad

        A million times this. We all know Nintendo is working on great games for next year, but would it hurt to see trailers more often? I thought Nintendo Directs were supposed be a way for fans to see progress without having to wait for E3 every year.

    Why does America get all these good deals? The UK never ever gets any of these sales 🙁

  • Gameonfool

  • My local Best Buy is the worst. I was just in there earlier today and they didn’t have this deal or the Eshop card deal marked anywhere in the department. What all games are included in this deal? I also can’t find it listed anywhere on the website to get an official list. Please help.

    I hate how this is worded. I went into BestBuy yesterday to return a television and they, too, had no idea what games were BOGO 50%. They use verbiage for “most games” and “other titles” in their flyers and it turns out it’s really only a handful. I was considering DEUS EX or Rayman but I guess they meant Nintendo-published games as neither were included in the sale.

    I should take a picture of my BestBuy’s Wii U section. What a joke. An unorganized mess of games. Stacked in front of each other like the CD’s. I’d be better off buying online for sure.

  • Brennero Pardo Centanaro

    I picked Zelda and Mario 3D. Will have a blast this holiday

  • shaun

    3DS has the strongest game line up right now. my only issue is I DL games only. Now Just wish it was like apple app / iTunes Store you can re-download games on new devises once u log in with a new purchased device

  • Ninja Pirate
