I was always planning on owning a Wii U but the question was always “when?” Will it be when Smash comes out(the latest I’d possibly get a Wii U) or will there be a game that can convince me to buy it before Smash? It looks like Nintendo has convinced me to get it earlier then I originally intended with their Mario Kart 8 bundle. Doesn’t hurt that I had $200 worth of gift cards at Best Buy so I only ended up spending $158. Which is a pretty solid deal, Now I’ll have a Wii U, Wii mote plus controller, a wheel(which I couldn’t care less about), Mario Kart 8 and also a digital copy of Pikman(ew, Nintendo digital. Whatever, it’s free!) 3! It’s a good thing that Mario Kart 8 is actually a physical disc though because if it was a code for the eshop I would’ve just kept waiting. Until Nintendo makes content tied to accounts instead of systems I flat-out refuse to buy anything on the eShop, even if its only 1 dollar. One issue I might have with Mario Kart 8 though is the cast!! Oh please God tell me there are still hidden characters, where’s my Dry Bowser and & Dry Bones!? But besides that I’m really looking forward to May 30th. Maybe after a few weeks I’ll pick up a pro controller and also Super Mario 3D World.
