I'm considering getting Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. It looks fun, but I hear (from reviews) that it's very hard. I'm concerned that it might be too hard. I don't want to be frustrated, I…Continue

@LordX Both are good choices, but I went with getting New Super Mario Brothers U. Pikmin 3 is more RTS, and that doesn't interest me. If you haven't played a 2D Mario in a while, and do not want to wait for Mario Maker, its a good choice. If you want an RTS, go with Pikmin 3.

Going to be picking up Mario Kart 8 in the next day or two. What free game should I get between New Super Mario Brothers U and Pikimin 3? (I got Wind Waker with my system and have no interest in Wii Party U)

If you have a Wii U Deluxe model don't forget that you are entered into the Deluxe Digital Promotion. It accumulates points from digital purchases in order to give you $5  credit per 500 point milestones. Spend $1 you get 10 pts spend $59.99  and you get 599 pts. 

I had forgotten about it and found I had $35 bucks worth of credit stored up. It ends December 2014 and you have until March 2015 to redeem all your credit.

More info on the Nintendo DDP page

Abel2Disable Sorry for such a late reply  on Rayman Legends. If it's solo play only your good on either the Vita or WiiU versions. They both integrate the touch functionality that is lacking on the other consoles. The content is the same single player wise, the only difference is having one at home the other on the go.

If you see yourself playing MP the WiiU version is the one to get. As it was the primary console the game was built for it takes the best advantage of the touch/dual screen functions.

Just bought "the family" a Wii U and so far it's been a big hit with the wife and kid. So far only have NintendoLand and Wind Waker as far as games go, but my favorite thing so far has been that adorable "Wii -> Wii U transfer" animation. Watching that made me want to give somebody a hug.

I'm thinking of getting Rayman Legends on the Wii U. I'd be playing it mostly single player. Anyone with the game have opinions on how it plays on Wii U? My other option is getting it on the Vita.

super Mario 3dword is actually surprising me, really fun game!

Identifying with games and game characters

This is actually just a copy-paste of my most recent comment on this weeks Axe Factor. I've long intended this as a blog post, which is why it appears here as well.

I haven't heard the podcast yet, but I felt like writing a response to the question to this weeks poll, "Have you ever had a "That's Me!" experience with a video game character?"

The answer is yes. One of the most powerful gaming experiences for me the last couple of years have been To The…
