I originally planned on buying the Basic model which is what I pre-ordered monnths ago, but GameStop said I could upgrade today, and so I did. Initially, I didn't see much of a reason for it, didn't care for the extra stuff and Nintendo Land looked like a flop to me. Boy was I wrong.

Nintendo Land is fantastic.

I still don't care for the other stuff, and black is an awful fingerprint magnet, however Nintendo Land is definitely a fantastic game. Zelda Battle Quest is my personal favorite minigame so far, though I haven't played any of the multiplayer ones.

NSMBU is just Mario, nothing new, though that isn't bad. I love the pink baby Yoshi, and the game is great.

Miiverse is an amazing concept and so far it seems like it's being used well. It's nice having a dedicated online message board exclusive for every game on the Wii U.

I'm planning on picking up Zombi U and Black Ops 2 sometime soon, so I can't wait to try out online.
How about everybody else?

I enjoyed watching the Nintendo Defense Force go full panic damage control mode, especially over the bricking issue

Loving it. I was able to watch the Walking Dead tonight, while playing New Super Mario U in the palm of my hand.

We all had a blast playing games in ways every system I own dating back to the original NES can't hope to do.

I enjoyed seeing some of my friends get one and their impressions of it, all favorable. Too bad I have to wait until after February so I don't get distracted while doing grad school apps.

Also the trolls trying to bring everyone down early in the day, then getting overpowered by the positive experiences as the day went on was cool.

I played Nintendo land for far more than I wanted to. Also, saw a basketball game (home team won).

I'm so mad I couldn't pick up a game, my mom lent me 50 bucks to go buy a game and I worked from 1-7 and of course everything is freakin closed except for walmart and their subpar game selection. I just wanted sonic racing, the only game I can afford at the moment with the 40 dollar price tag lol

It totally sucked. My Wii U broke after the system update, it can no longer sync with a gamepad (it displays garbled sync-symbols so you can see what to type in). So I have to send it in to Nintendo to fix.

Wasn't planning on getting a Wii U today but ended up with a Deluxe which I absolutely love.

It was a fine day :)
