    Quick Question … Where is the intro music from again? Is that Earthbound? It sounds very Earthbound to me, though I can’t put my finger on why, exactly….

    Even if the range of the gamepad can’t reach to your bed room all you have to do is unplug your console move it to your bedroom and just plug it back in. This is possible because the gamepad operates by it self and you don’t need a TV. This feature will be very useful for long car trips if you have a car plug adapter you can play your Wii U on the road. I plan to have a lot of fun with this I will just put the Wii U in my back pack go to a public place find a wall plug and start playing Batman and see if anyone asks me about it. I will also come early to one of my college classes and do the same thing. I think it will be a great way to advertise the Wii U.

      … That …. That, sir, is brilliant… and if you can play Smash Bros on the go with the tablet (which it probably will if Sakurai is involved), it will make for the best road trip device ever. Its better than hooking up a Gamecube to a DVD player, anyway,

      Yeah you’re right! I haven’t tought that, its great. But remember that not all the games support this function, for example you wouldn’t be able. To do that in zombi U or in nintendoland. But i can go whatever i want and play nsmbu on the tablet !

    First of all, quick quiz to the show. Can you name all 4 of the towns in EarthBound? (Hint: The first town is Onett, and it is the first town)

    Secondly…. I forgot…. you know what, I’ll reply later with the actually meat of my comment when I remember it…

    A little disappointed that we can’t have a conference call that we can host a heartcast with most listeners with a Wii U. As well as the not pausing the game for the chat feature is a downside…that I cross my fingers that its fixable with update. If Nintendo doesn’t get the information out there then that means less consumers buying it. Not yet seen the console in person because its not a high priority for everyone that has a car. I think Anthfurnee meant like did developers skimp cut content on digital version compared to cartridge to fit for download… Afraid that I can only be with Nintendo land for now as Wii U games.
