I finally got a Wii U and at a great deal...

#1castrejon04Posted 6/24/2014 11:17:31 PM
So my brother and I decided to go to Target and take advantage of the buy 2 get one free. Since there are several Targets just few miles apart we could only get the games in one and the Wii U in the other. We got 3D World, MK8, and DK Tropical Freeze. We got Target to price match Amazon and we walked out with 3 games for only 105. Then we went to another Target and got the Mario Bros Wii U bundle that was on sale. In the end we split the expense by half, so I only paid about 200 bucks. Now that's a steal.

Now I'm just sitting here waiting for the system update to finish. Sheesh. What happened to the plug and play consoles these days?

Can't you play while it updates, or is that only for game updates

What he means is that some game disks come with system updates on them.

However if a develop adds more content to a game, then you will need to update your game to receive it, assuming it's not DLC. A good example of this is Mutant Mudds on the 3DS. People that bought the first version, updated it when the Grannie levels were added. And they'll need to do so again once the Ghost levels drop soon.

Nice haul. You're going to be busy for a while with those games. Don't forget to link your WiiU to your Club Nintendo account, then register MK8 for your free game. I recommend either Pikmin 3 or Zelda: Wind Waker HD.

Have fun!

some games have them.
Sonic Lost World, for instance, got a patch to improve a lot of the mechanics above just what's on the disc.so if it's your first time playing it, the console will apply the update to it.
or Pikmin 3, there's an update to make it controllable via touch screen, so it will apply the update when you first play it.

game updates are short though.

Ah, I'm already missing the sweet days of buying a game and playing the game straight away after the logo. No BS like the hub screen, patches, updates etc.

i miss that too, and game retro far more than modern.
but these patches are IMPROVING the games. games like Pikmin were fine already, but the update made it even better than before. why is that bad?
in Sonic & Allstars Racing Transformed, i'm pretty sure there was an update that ADDED new characters. not even DLC, it was totally free, they just gave out more characters! how is that bad?
