My little brother found a great listing on eBay: $115 + shipping for a 32gb Wii U with Gamepad and Pro Controller. It gets here anywhere between the 16th and 18th. My brother paid for most of it, I just covered shipping.

My brother wanted it for Wind Waker HD. I don't know why, he was playing my copy of WW on the Wii and imo the original still looks fine. I'm interested in Twilight Princess HD; I've never beaten it, and while we have the original I'd rather just play the HD version so I don't have to bother with motion controls.

Aside from that, we want to pick up OoT and Majora's Mask; we have them on Wii and 3DS, but again the Wii version is 480p and as I understand it the 3D versions of the games aren't as good as the originals. We're also going to get Super Mario 64 and M&L: Partners in Time

i had a lotta fun with hyrule warriors, especially when i played coop with my brother. we used to play together a lot as kids but as we grew older we stopped. we played hyrule warriors a lot together, so i have very fond memories of it

i understand some people might not find the mindless hack & slash fun, but the game has a ton of replayability, especially with the challenging adventure maps

although, there IS a definitive edition on the switch, no? maybe it wouldnt be a good idea to pick it up for the wii u, but if you can find it for a good price, id definitely recommend it

The unfortunate thing about the Wii U is basically all of its worthwhile exclusives have been siphoned away and ported over to the Switch at this point. I don't even know what to recommend.

Come to think of it, the Wii U does have a pretty robust Virtual Console.

That's why I was supportive of the purchase, seeing as Nintendo in their obstinacy hasn't brought over VC. Sure we've got the SNES and NES games they've added to switch, but we've heard nothing of N64, and I'm concerned we'll never get GB Advance, DS, or GC games made available on the switch.

Also this can be done on either Wii or Wii-U, but if you install Homebrew channel to Wii menu and put CTGP on an SD card, it’s a really cool mod for vanilla Mario Kart Wii. Shit has custom tracks and includes this option called item rain that’s just wild

im not sure if i prefer the original windwaker or the hd remake

the original still holds up, but the remake has a buncha QoL improvements, like the swift sail or the ability to move when in first person... at least the hd remake wasnt butchered like majoras mask 3d
