Are they not releasing all the games that were on the Wii on this? I know I can simply just go into Wii mode and buy games, but that's besides the point. In a year, they've only released 59 games? I just don't get if it's a difficult process doing whatever they're doing to the games to make them on the Wii U or what.

Also, is there any news of possible Gamecube titles on the vc?

There's more to converting them to the Wii U than just putting them on there directly as they have to support the gamepad and such. However, they are releasing them at a snail's pace and aren't releasing their most popular titles right out of the gate. So, obviously, they have long term plans to drag the Wii U's VC out over the console's life. Basically, expect a repeat of how they did the Wii's VC.

Yeah, they're really taking their time with it. I remember waiting on the Wii for their weekly vc titles only to find random NES arcade games. I wish they would just hurry it up!
