    • yeah they just want this to happen so they can say they are leaving blame the fan base and "say were not the bad guy for doing this" but they're executio with the delay back fired and then they using half of the DLC as another way cause they know that won't be enough. when it's obviously too late. too bad. Just don't bother and leave.

      It's not a new trailer, but Nintendo has released a new version of it that pumps the frames-per-second up to 60.

    Hey fellas, need some buying advice.

    I want to buy a Wii U, Smash Bros, and MK8 for my son.

    I was planning on getting the Wii U MK8 bundle from Walmart but they're all sold out.

    What's my cheapest option?

    some guy was telling me today that nintendo pours way more resources into its handheld department and that's one major reason why the wii u is "failing"

    not sure I buy that. I'm pretty sure nintendo pours the same amount of resources into its handhelds as it has its consoles. he also tried telling me that the 3ds version of smash is better than the wii u version because of extra features or watever, not sure I buy that either.

    Are you bent on getting it right now? Because the MK8 bundle may be back in stock unless it was a limited time offer (not sure if it was). But the cheapest Black Friday thing I've seen is via eBay, a bundle that includes 3D World and Nintendo Land for $259.99 (I do not know if this is new or not).

    Besides that, there's not much options besides just buying the current bundles and getting MK8 and Smash separately. You could wait for a refurbished Wii U to come up on Nintendo's online shop, too. They tend to have good deals, if you don't mind the fact that it's not brand new

    Lol, the Wii U version of Smash easily has three times the content of the 3DS version. Literally, the only thing the 3DS version has over it is the portability aspect.

    he's a business major and he ain't a complete idiot, but I'll agree here that he definitely didn't know what he was talking about.
    Ya, so he was just... being an idiot lol

    Did people actually get those? I know it was a pricing error of some sort. Did Sears honor it?

    I read that people were making Toys R Us and Walmart price match it.

    Walmart and Amazon list more Amiibo figures for December 14

    (18 hours ago)
    8

    [​IMG]
    We already knew that Amiibo figures for Captain Falcon, Diddy Kong, Little Mac, Luigi, Pit and Zelda would be worming their way into our hearts and onto our shelves sometime in December, but Amazon and Walmart seem to have narrowed that window down to a single day: December 14.

    When browsing Walmart's website, a release date of 12/14/2014 can be seen next to each of the aforementioned figures, ditto for Amazon. And it's not just online listings - the official Walmart Twitter account has also seemingly confirmed the date. "Yes, the release date for Captain Falcon Amiibo is set for December 14," the "Walmart Elves" tweeted to a prospective Amiibo purchaser after he inquired if the date was official.

    Of course, numbers on the internet and even Santa's helpers can be wrong from time to time, but it probably wouldn't hurt to stake out your spot in line if there's a particular figure you need to add to your collection.

    Looks like Nintendo is going to discount some games from the eShop for Thanksgiving week and beyond. It's up to 30% off, though, so probably won't see huge cuts, but it's something:

    [​IMG] Splatoon’s Octopi Villains Aren’t Exactly The Brightest, But Still Dangerous. November 26, 2014 . 2:33am

    Turf wars in Splatoon lets you use special weapons, which can be accessed by spreading paint on the ground to gain power. One of these special weapons is the “Barrier” that lets you reflect enemy attacks.
