Wii U / Miiverse users?

So I picked up a Wii U deluxe along with ZombiU recently. It might not be the end all gaming system but it's a big step up from the old Wii and I have been having fun with it. The online Miiverse forum aspect has been more entertaining than I would have thought with some of the drawing posts being rather clever. Anyone else got one or planning to get one?

One thing I did notice is the youtube app is garbage but the built in web browser actually works well for youtube videos. Netflix app worked with no problems.

My nintendo network ID is grimacium if anyone needs a wiiu friend.

Still in the Wii stone age. Is that zombie game any good?

It's actually really good if you're into survival horror. It does a good job of creating a creepy atmosphere and the zombies are a real threat. Cool thing is when you die you respawn as another survivor and you have to go kill your old zombified self to get your gear back and other players' zeds can show up in your game. General consensus online is the poor reviews by a few critics were way off.

yay necro.

I'm tempted to buy one only to get the new monster hunter for now.

Is this thing really worth the 350 dollar step up from having a normal Wii aside from being able to play the newer games? Any glaring flaws towards the system? I do somewhat like the concept but it seems to be one of those systems where its only fun if you have 3 other to play with.

Is the deluxe set worth the extra 50 bucks aside from a "slightly" larger storage space and being black?

Ever notice you always want something that much more badly when you don't have the money at the moment to get it.

Yea, actually only want it cause it's black lol, but didnt know it came with extra controllers and games. Really, I'm only buying this thing to play monster hunter atm, its kinda one of those addict games i've played since the ps2 version in like 03 or whenever it came out lol. too bad i'll have to spend another 50 bucks on the handheld controller thing that looks like a traditional controller.

I'd get the black one. You're going to want the extra memory for the eshop and game updates and such. The white one is somewhat crippled for sake of budget shoppers and you'll end up having to buy an external drive for it anyway. Plus deluxe usually comes bundled with a game and controller charging stand and such.

If you're into monster hunter you'll probably be happy. The demo looked cool but I didn't get how to play, which supposedly is only a problem for people that haven't played MH before.

No real flaws other than the large initial OS update on release, which I think they might be shipping already installed now.
