GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - What are you doing most on Wii U?
Click Here to View Story




Weekend is almost here, my friends. Let's power through Thursday and Friday, then relax like crazy on those days off! Hope all is going well and things are looking good. See you in a few, short hours!

The Wii U is still in its infancy. Nintendo is trying to find the right marketing approach to get new and old consumers to hop in. Some of us have already seen enough to know that the system has a welcome spot in our homes. While there many not be many owners out there, the ones that do have the system are hopefully keeping busy.

The Wii U certainly has a lot of options for entertainment. We saw some of these ideas trickle in as the Wii grew on in years, but the Wii U came out of the gate with a bunch of entertaining elements. Of course, you can play a nice selection of Wii U retail and digital games, as well as your old Wii titles. That's just the main course, though!

If you feel like surfing around on the web, you actually have a very capable browser to enjoy. If movies are your thing, you can check out Amazon On Demand Video, Hulu, Netflix and even Nintendo TVii to make choosing a film that much easier. Maybe you're spending your time on the YouTube app watching whatever content finds you. Let's not forget things you can only get on Wii U, like Miiverse and Wii U Chat!

Those of you with a Wii U, what have you been spending your time doing most? Are you playing the hell out of your new Wii U games? Have you been using the multimedia aspects of the system to no end? For me, lately I've been doing a lot more in the way of content watching than playing. Leave a comment and let us know!

I'm working on finishing Trine 2 right now (no excuses for poor looking graphics after playing this game), enjoying multiplayer in Black Ops 2, and looking forward to seeing how Rabbids LAND is this next week. Just starting to really get into NSMBU, playing a little Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed as well.

Might be heading out tomorrow (okay, that's today technically at this hour) to grab an eShop card with some Christmas money/coupons from Best Buy, because I want to grab a few more eShop titles that are on sale.

Also, enjoying the Miiverse aspect a good bit. Trying to help people where I can, and get help there if I need it.

My main use of the console is still playing games, I still play Nintendoland on a regular basis, Mario to get all the star coins, I started my second playthrough of Zombi U, on my way to finish Darksiders 2 and just started Batman. And that's without counting Nano Assault and Trine.

Then I have to say I use the console A LOT to go on the Internet. And for Miiverse as well.

Playing games mostly! Miivserse is amazing. The browser is awesome for youtube. Screw the nay sayers, I can easily see the Wii U being my all-time favorite console soon! All it needs is Pikmin, Smash Bros, Zelda, and 3D Mario! Metroid and Starfox would be icing on the cake too. :-)

I use TVii and the browser. It's not that I don't have anything to play on it, I still haven't beat Mario, but I'm busy with Paper Mario SS.

Netflix, sadly. Although I haven't been doing much of that lately because my system has been out for repair. Thanks for nothing, Nintendo.

Making the rounds on most of my retail and download games, fooling around on Miiverse, watching stuff on the GamePad through Netflix and using the browser a lot.

Also, Off-TV Play is a godsend when you and your college roomie share the TV. He had a go at Anarchy Reigns on his Xbox 360 while I was burning stuff in Little Inferno.

Really awesome. :D

Off-tv play for a bunch of games, my WiI U isn't even currently hooked up to a TV. Great for doing all the optional stuff in ACIII especially since the main game in my opinoun is really bad. The only game I played that I hated but I enjoyed the side stuff. Also working on earning money in Tekken (can't recommend it enough) for costume items.

Nintendo Land, Scribblenauts and Miiverse. Though the internet browser is starting to grow on me, like a tablet only with buttons. Use the Wii U every day, lots of fun.

I mostly only play games on weekends, and since there seems to never be anything good on tv, I use WiiU for Netflix and Amazon.

I did not get a Wii U for Christmas but January turn out to be a three paycheck month,:) !
So I bought one first check. I will get more games down the road. In the meantime, I am on the cusp of Lvl 56 in Goldeneye 007.Then I will retire that game and play NintendoLand full force!

I've only been using the web browser most of the time. I rarely play NSMBU cause I know I could finish it rather quickly plus its the only Wii U game I have since I got the basic. As usual I'm playing my 3DS more.
I once lived in a bubble… but eventually… I grew tired of it. So yeah… wishes do come true… well for me at least!Image

I'm loving lots about the WiiU so far but mostly playing games. Have NintendoLand, Mario U, Mighty Switch Force already and got Darksiders II on order (for those in UK shopto.net only £23.85!).

I like Miiverse and the browser is surprisingly good though I'm not really making use of any of the entertainment apps and TVii is not available here yet, though I'm not too interested in that tbh...

It's a great console only let down by sluggish menu loading and a pants battery life, plus there's no "must have" game so far imo... When Zelda/Metroid/3D Mario etc show up it'll be Xmas all over again! :D

Wow, lots of varied answers here. I think that's good for the system, Nintendo wants us to use it for more than games, so it becomes a part of our lives.

I've been playing games mostly, but now that the whole Super HD thing was announced for Netflix, I am itching to watch something to check it out! I'm happy to see the Wii U make the list of supported devices, that's definitely a plus for Nintendo.

Really digging Miiverse!!! I think that's one of the gems of this system! Unfortunately, it's one you cannot experience unless you yourself have one, or one of your friends have one.... How does Nintendo market this experience to get fence sitters to buy a wii u? Been playing a ton of NSMBU, and loving it! I forgot how challenging those platformers can be, and the graphics are gorgeous (lighting effect when throwing fireballs!). Oh! For those who haven't purchased it yet, Nano Assault Neo is awesome! Graphics are great and gameplay is smooth! On that note, also making my way through Trine 2!I. Nintendo Land has been a blast with friends! Thinking of picking up a pro pad today and start playing some wii virtual console stuff, in particular, snes and 64 titles. I have to admit, I haven't been using it much for streaming as of yet.. Hoping to hear more about the Wii U virtual console in the coming weeks!

My roommates and I are playing the heck out of Scribblenauts Unlimited. That game allows you to be so creative and it's hilarious to see what results work!

Netflix watching happens too, but it's not as frequent as one of us playing.
