FYI, I only played it on the PC but Ittle Dew is a great game.

A little short but I really loved it.

After updating the latest software (which includes the Quick Start Menu), the WiiU now has an annoying habit.

When it's powered off and sitting in the charging tray, it makes an annoying "clack" sound every minute or two. It's not very loud, but gets on my nerves. I turned off all the new features, but it didn't stop the noise. I even turned off the Quick Start Menu, because I don't see much advantage to it. It doesn't seem any quicker than booting to the main menu and choosing a game from there.

Has anyone found a solution to it?

Wish I could help, but I haven't heard or seen any oddities since the update. I love the quick menu, however.

You're the reason Nintendo is doomed.

How do you figure that? I don't know his reasons, but I'd pretty much do the same for a download like this because of Nintendo's restrictive lock to the hardware that bought it DRM scheme. Nintendo is failing me by not having an account based system, not the other way around.

I pretty much stick with exclusives and the Virtual Console. Only a few pre XB1/PS4 multiplatform purchases for me on this system so far and all were retail releases. I don't own either of them yet, but I'm now holding off buying anything for the 360/PS3/Wii U if a PS4/XB1 version with superior visuals is available.

I feel the exact same way. I'd be buying way more virtual console stuff if they made the simple decision to allow playing it on Wii / Wii U / 3DS as well as multiple Wii Us / 3DSs / etc. Sony just does it right here, and although I absolutely love Nintendo games, they've alienated me, a long-time fan, by the lack of simple account management.

As it is, I stick to emulators for most of the old stuff. If / when they change their stance on rebuying across multiple systems I'll reconsider, but for now I'm not getting nickel and dimed over 20 year old games.

I forgot about the digital deluxe thing and had 25 bones in my account once I actually looked at it. There's a ton of great stuff on the little old Wii U.

Can't decide what game to get. Nothing I'm really interested in on 3DS, so I'm looking at Wii U. Maybe Game and Wario, or some classic Earthbound

I reached platinum status. I'll probably go with NES Remix but I'm going to wait it out until the deadline is a bit closer just in case a retail compilation of both is announced before the August deadline.

If that happens, I'll likely go with Donkey Kong Country Returns for the 3DS since I wouldn't buy it otherwise due to owning the Wii original.

I think I need a 3DS.

I went with Game and Wario as I already had NES Remix which is fantastic BTW.

The 3DS has some great games. I ended up snagging Earthbound, such a good classic

It's too classic for me. I never liked the battle system but still to this day NEED/WANT an RPG set in regular space.

There's a new Wii U system update.

It allows users to transfer data from one Wii U console to another. Not sure of all the particulars like just what's transferred (One concern that immediately leaps to mind is your Wii mode data), if your Wii U that your data presently resides on have to be operable in order to transfer your content licenses (I can just about guarantee it has to be which makes this feature rather moot for many cases where it could be beneficial), etc.

The other notable change is that the Wii U eShop can now be navigated using the Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller or Wii Classic Controller.

I do, but I only reached Gold this year and none of the rewards on that level interest me. I think I already own most of them in some form or another, and the rest just don't appeal to me. At Platinum, I'd probably opt for Game & Wario or Earthbound, but in general none of them are terribly exciting to me. A $10 game download doesn't seem like much payoff for diligently registering games/filling out surveys all year.

I'm a little annoyed in general that the rewards this year are just game downloads instead of an exclusive physical item. I never bothered registering probably about 300-400 points' worth of games last year, and I guess I'm glad I didn't.
