I now have a GREAT reason to appreciate the gamepad!!! :D

So I'm going to college, and definitely want to play games like Xenoblade Chronicles X, Hyrule Warriors, and Smash Bros on my WiiU.... but I don't have a TV I can bring! And sure I can buy one maybe ... but my dorm is really small anyway, and I don't know ifi can fit one (I'm also paying for EVERYTHING in college, so my budget for extra things is probably too small for a tv).

But now I realize. ..I don't need aTV! :D plug in my WiiU to a wall, and I can just play on the gamepad! So happy right now! :)

And use services like Netflix. Hook up a pair of headphones, and lay in your bed watching a movie so you aren't making noise during the night.

So chill...

But be careful, since I don't think all games support off tv play (but very many do)

Most games support off-tv play, but not all. ZombiU doesn't.

Also, you didn't hear this from me, but...

The gamepad is great for teh pr0ns.

I wouldn't want that to be on my account history personally. It's why I never watched any of those "romance" films about lesbians on Netflix.

Now Playing: "The Hunt for the Two Missing Nintendo 64 Games"
An expansion came out, but I'm still a third of the way through!

I hate to burst your bubble, but whenever I've tried to boot my Wii U into Wii Mode without the TV on or connected, I get an error message.

"The Wii Menu could not be opened.

Select Try Again on the TV
The Wii U screen will need to be displayed on the TV until the Wii Menu opens."

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but at least as far as I can tell, you'll need a TV to get started.

EDIT: Wow, I actually read the post and then immediately managed to forget it was about Wii mode :S Never mind.
