The Wii U Topic
I agree with most of what Striker wrote although I think the biggest mistake Nintendo made was not having a truly spectacular game available for the Wii U at launch.

Maybe Nintendo should drop the price of the 32 GB Wii U down to $250 to stay in the game. :huh:

I'm sure Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. 4 will boost sales but neither of those games will be released before the 2nd quarter of next year.

does anyone know roughly how many players still play goldeneye 007 on the wii?
I just played it the other day and the lobby filled up quickly so I suspect a good number of people are still playing.

Rumors of the Wii's demise are greatly exaggerated. Me and the little woman played Wii Sports Resort last night and it was mad fun. :D

Given the enthusiasm for the PS4 around the world it's poised to be the dominant console in the 8th gen. I'll certainly have one by the time Bungie's Destiny is released although I find myself longing for updates to old franchises. What I wouldn't give to play a new Crash Team Racing or War of the Monsters that features on-line play! :w00t:

What browser do you use?
I'm still having issues with Internet Explorer 11 as it won't allow me to update Adobe Flash. Google Chrome updates Flash every time you open the browser.

BTW, doesn't the comments section of YouTube suck now? What happened? Now the Top Comments are no longer the ones with the most likes which makes no sense whatsoever. :-/

Black Friday
42 Million Dead In Bloodiest Black Friday Weekend On Record ;)
First responders reporting from retail stores all across the nation said the record-breaking post-Thanksgiving shopping spree carnage began as early as midnight on Friday, when 13 million shoppers were reportedly trampled, pummeled, burned, stabbed, shot, lanced, and brutally beaten to death while attempting to participate in early holiday sales events.

Black Friday
Yeah, Cyber Monday makes much more sense than Black Friday. -_-

It worries me that Grizz is thinking that the controller market will crash. I'd really like to know his thinking behind this.
I could write volumes on why I think it's going to happen but I won't do so on this forum because it's disrespectful and inappropriate given how invested some members here are in their collections. Also, my intuitive hunch is mere speculation at best and I don't want to adversely affect the N64 collector market by starting a panic.

Which Super Smash Bros?
Project M 3.0 update drops December 9th. Get your 2GB SD cards ready. :D

Upcoming Movie Releases

Anybody looking forward to the new Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy?
Very much looking forward to it and hoping that it returns to the quality of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.

What do you guys think about Tarantino's movies?

Kill Bill: Vol. 1 is one of my all time favorite movies but I didn't care for the follow-up as much aside from the Pai Mei scenes.

Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece and probably would have won best picture if hadn't of been for Forrest Gump.

Completely unrelated: A movie that I really love that doesn't often get mentioned is Searching for Bobby Fischer. Have any of you ever seen it?

Watcha Listenin' To?
Can't get this out of my head.

And the launch issues don't matter as long as you can turn in your faulty console for a working one.

Knock on wood, all the video game consoles I purchased at launch worked perfectly. The only console that ever failed on me was my Xbox 360 that I purchased in 2008, three years after launch.

I'm hoping the price will go down after a while. Shame that some people are having problems with their new ps4's.
Very small percentage wise compared to the people who are having problems with their Xbox One's disc drives.

Just received my custom DS4 from Evil Controllers. Very pleased with the result. :D

I can't stop staring at that controller. :wub:

Friday November 29th is the launch date for the PS4 in Europe and Australia. How many units do you think Sony will sell in each region?

Heres a pic of my "daily driver" been sitting in the driveway for months now waiting for me to finish it (new top end, new T5 n starter etc)

Spoiler: click to toggle

I've always been a big fan of the 85/86 Mustang GT's clean styling. The 1987 GT's got all that plastic cladding that sorta ruined the look.

Is yours carbureted or fuel-injected?

The Xbox One Topic
Buddy, have you tried putting the Xbox One in your router's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)?

I always keep my Xbox 360 in my D-Link router's DMZ to negate any NAT issues.

PS4 vs XB1

Matt, during PS2/XBOX and PS3/X360, which controllers were better for you?
Since Matt has already answered here's my perspective.

PS2/Xbox: The PS2 was the clear winner until Microsoft released the slimmer design and evened the playing field.

PS3/Xbox 360: The 360's controller set a new standard and is quite possibly the best controller for the types of games released during the 7th gen.

From what I'm reading on-line it seems that the PS4's DS4 is going to be the de facto standard for the 8th gen. It sure looks sexy and I can't wait to fondle its curvaceous handles and finger its touch pad. ;)

BTW, SniperWolf has chosen and she's gone with the PS4.

Those are really slick battery terminal replacements, kartmaster. I like 'em!
