I'll go first.

Wii U likes:
-Fun with a friend
-Mario Kart 8 is fun and runs great
-Will have Smash Bros. this year and Bayonetta 2.

Wii U dislikes
-Not many demos on the eShop
-Storage space, the space should be larger. 32GB might not fill up for me yet though.

What about you guys?

-no cross buy with 3DS eShop
-Can't turn off the gamepad if i'm using Pro Controller
-Pro Controller isn't considered a Classic Controller in Wii Mode when they have the exact same buttons but in a different layout
-Slow VC and 1st party release
that's about all i can think of. There's a crapton i do like so i just posted my complaints

I like:

-The library albeit smaller than the Wii's seems to have gone back to core gaming rather than gimmick gaming, and I'm finding the few games I have on Wii U much more fun than anything on the Wii
-The gamepad when it is used properly (such as in WW HD)
-The size of the console


-Library size
-VC not being given any decent games (most people already have the NES/SNES/GBA titles or are emulating them)
-Storage space
-I don't mind the gamepad, but I hate having to baby my controller to make sure it doesn't get broken since it costs as much as the console
Currently playing: Wind Waker HD

Off TV play
Wii U Pro Controller
Great first party titles so far and more coming
BC with wii and wii controllers
Thay storage can be expanded with an external hdd.

Gamepad battery life (before i put the extended battery life)
Not as powerful as rivals
3rd party support is lacking (to be fair i bought a lot of 3rd party games to support the cause but alot of people didnt)
Online is inconsistent. Love thats its free but some titles like MK 8 have a great online experience and some dont have any online at all

Gamepad, everything about it
Overall quality of first party games
100% backwards compatability

Baffling lack of VC support
Small internal storage
DLC and updates for games take an incredibly long time to come out, if they ever do

I like most of the features (90%), I don't like 3rd party support and how slow they are publishing the VC games

-User interface (for the most part)
-The gamepad
-Backward compatibility

-Lackluster digital library
-Barren release schedule
-Storage space
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

I like the games, almost all of them I have so far are my favorite of their respective franchise (Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, etc). I like the Gamepad and it's off-TV play, which makes things a bit more convenient in that I don't have to look at the TV and can just lay around anywhere. I like the fact that the Wii Remote is still used for some games like Nintendo Land and Pikmin 3.

- Great party system, very fun with a group of people.
- Nice handful of upcoming games.
- Off TV play.

- Said off TV play has piss poor range.
- The current library of games is bad.
- Gamepad's battery life is atrocious.
- Practically never anything in the eShop.
- No trophy/achievement system.
- Miiverse is run by Nazi's.
Without exaggeration, I can honestly say this is the best thing I've played this whole year, and its only a demo!
