    I agree with you Evan about the no online. It’s really frustrating. I would love to battle you. However, I am loving Pikmin 3. 9 hours into the single player. The new characters are charming. The puzzles and exploration are rewarding. I’m playing with the tablet. I actually don’t think the graphics are amazing. Its weird some parts are amazing while other things look like upscale Wii games. But game has enough charm to make it wonderful in spite of minor control and graphical issues. I’ll be playing the multiplayer with my GF since she finds them so adorable. Even if she doesn’t normally play games. She loved the Pikmin mode in NintendoLand.

    For me Pikmin 2 was in my top 3 Cube games so this sequel makes WiiU worth it for me.

    That 160k is sold to retailers…as is any of their sales numbers. I believe. The first shipment from Q3/Q4 I don’t think have sold through.

    Like Noah I am also starting to feel fatigued with the daily grind of the AC.I find that traveling to the island and chasing random strangers while yelling”My baby is drowning” a good way to break the normal mundane tasks. Hope that helps.

    A price cut for the Wii U is not the answer and has already been proved not to work in the UK. The basic pack price of £250 has twice been cut by ASDA (Wallmart) to just £150.
    This did nothing to stimulate sales the first time then the second time they made the decision to remove the Wii U from its shelves completely.
    The only thing that is going to save the Wii U is games, games, games and with 3rd party support being withdrawn on what seems like a weekly basis its going to be down to Nintendo alone to make this happen. Even if they bundled it with a game for Christmas to try and shift a few units what is the consumer going to purchase after that with so few games available for it?
