    Got my Wii U last week and I’ve been LOVING it. Hacked it and now I’ve been appreciating it so much

    Get this console while you can before the prices skyrocket tbh

    Almost everything that was exclusive to the Wii U is now playable on the Switch, and is either enhanced or upgraded.

    There really isn’t much of that console left to really have a renaissance of

    Not true though:

    You can play Wii games natively through HDMI. It may not look the best obvi but that’s dope. That’s my whole Wii catalogue any time

    The game pad is more comfortable than the switch in portable and that’s not even a debate if you used both tbh. Not the mention it came out way before the switch and the tech to play it on the tv and then take it off the tv is dope for the time

    The virtual console is LEAPS and bounds better than the Switch’s and likely always will be (until it’s shut down in NA obvi but just buy the games u want first)

    Not EVERY game has been ported and not every single game will be ported. And why pay $60 for a port that was $40-50 on release when I could get the same game for $12? Just doesn’t add up

    And once you get into hacking your Wii U it gets SCARY.

    NATIVE GameCube support unlocked with widescreen hacks and such. You can play your GameCube games in bed natively that’s ridiculous

    Injecting free Wii games that run flawlessly

    Most of the other things I could mention you could do on a hacked switch but it’s much safer and better for the average person to hack a $130 Wii U instead of their $300 Switch that they can actively get banned from or risk bricking their system (unlikely)

    Just look at YouTube a lot of people are rocking with the hacked Wii U in 2020

  • i need to hack my wii u. I enjoyed it

    and its a full wii so its good in my book

    Exactly

    It’s just an improved Wii but the marketing was dogshit and nobody knew wtf it was

    I didn’t even REALLY know what it was until 2 years ago and I’m into video games lmaoo

    HIGHLY recommend hacking the Wii U. I’ve got overclocked ps1 and n64 emulators running as well and those combined with native GameCube and Wii support w free games is great

    Was gonna put a bunch of retro emulators on but I think I’m gonna get a hacked Vita for that tbh

    Well obviously if you hack something, it’s going to have a lot more going for it then it originally did

    The gamepad is heavy, clunky and more of an annoying gimmick for a lot of Wii U games. You can’t have it too far from the console itself, unlike the switch where you can take it literally anywhere.

    The virtual console is a plus, I’ll say that. The switch is lagging behind with retro games, and it seems like Nintendo is primarily focusing on NES and SNES games for it, even though they’ve been re releasing those games forever now. Every once in a awhile we will get a enhancement of a old game like with Xenoblade Chronicles, but still not as much.

    Like I said “Almost” every game has. The ports of old Wii U titles have more so been enhanced with more content and quality of life improvements. And most of them aren’t $60.

    Game pad is way worse than Swifch in handheld.

    Game pad was trash and controls were awkward

    How are the controls awkward?

    The sticks are ridiculously better than the switch’s joycons that feel like they are gonna break every time I move them

    And the game pad is actually designed to fit into your hand? The switch is just a slab Bc it’s supposed to be portable

    Plus the stick placement makes more sense on the switch if I need to hold Y and B my thumb is basically sitting on the stick

    Maybe if you have midget hands the switch is more comfortable

  • Still can't believe Nintendo bounced back from the Wii U the way they did. Thought that console would be the downfall of their consoles tbh.
