    I learned my lesson with the pre-ordering of the Wii with paying double the launch price off eBay. It would be a good business idea for Nintendo to have Wii fit U released in January for the new year resolutions fanatics. I am keeping my Wii U like I still have my original Wii from launch day. I look forward to Monday’s game night which I will be off work in time for. DO you think Phantasy Star Episode 1 and 2 will be downloadable on Wii U with functioning online feature? Or would Nintendo try and follow the chronological timeline of release games from GameCube?

    Question about 3DS friend codes:

    Say someone doesn’t own many multiplayer games, and doesn’t often go online with the ones he did have. Would it still be worth exchanging friend codes? If your answer is a resounding “meh, why not?” then let’s trade codes!

      Heck yeah you should trade codes because there’s still plenty of swapnote action going on. And someday you’ll have a great multiplayer game and a built in set of folks to play with.

    that last comment was ment to be a reply to ejamer

    recantly one of the assassin creed 3 devs said that easy modes have ruined and someone who shall remain nameless made a video that to sumerize caled him an elitest putting it nicley if you think im blowing the video out perportion ill post the link but only on request as for the ubisoft employee i feel what he said is true somewhat while an easy mode in its self isnt a bad thing it is a problem when its a default mode or worse still like the super guide in super mario 3d land wich i wouldnt dislike if i had the option to turn it off or it wasnt a default option by the way does new super mario bros 2 have super guides if so can they be turned off? one more thing i feel achevments should be disabled on easy modes otherwise it defeats the purpose of achevments

    Wow so much to talk about in these exciting times that I can’t keep up!
    So I guess I will just answer Noah’s question about Dillons Rolling Western to keep it short. I am not exactly a tower defense fan and I dont think Dillons rolling western is a great example of the genre. However, the mix of tower defense and physical action like rolling towards the next enemy and fighting them in real time made it addictive for me. The game I think is about balancing how much you want to upgrade your towers versus how much you upgrade Dillon himself. Plus the rolling mechanic using the touch screen I feel like is really well implemented and feels intuitive. I dont use the stylus though, I use my good ol’ right thumb. So yeah as a stand alone tower defense game I am sure you can do better, but as a action hybrid tower defense its cool!

    On a sad side note I didn’t preorder the wii u in time. I cant believe how fast the preorders went.
