This might disappoint some but, there's no booklet! Perhaps wiiu booklets will be digital, viewable on the gamepad?

Most games don't have booklets anymore

You can thank all those hippie people who recycle and want to save trees for that.

Yeah its a rare occasion to find a game with an actual manual these days, the last one I can think of is Witcher 2. You can also thank publishers being cheap and wanting to cut manufacturing cost, while claiming a desire to be green.

I believe almost all Wii U games now will have digital manuals. A lot of 3DS games do too - but those are pretty cool since they're in 3D :P.

Word is there's no Nuketown 2025 codes so far.

Day 1 updates are the new day 1 pack in codes.

#12 Posted by Sepewrath (28752 posts) -
Content is probably just locked on the disc anyway, so no need for codes. I guess no one cares about retailers breaking street date on Wii U games, its not like you could play them anyway.

No, there definitely should be a ticket inside of the box.

No its not.

Just like the new cases didn't save anyone any money, the cost to outfit their plants with the new case pieces and then the higher number of discs they have to replace means more money lost.

But they can't say anything because someone might stop hugging their tree and throw red paint on them for wearing a pair of leather sneakers at some point in their life.

They're still making inserts, just not manuals. The cost difference between printing inserts and manuals is negligible on such a large scale.

not really.

I am trying to save video games. Video games have become crap after new gamer casuals like him have ruined them by making them all generic 4 hour mediocre "games" that are linear, cinematic, bare bones and have little to no gameplay.

I am trying to save video games from the shooter epidemic that is killing them.

You're casual so like, is this some kind of self loathing you're pulling here?

It's ok that you're casual, you're talking on the Wii section of the site for God's sake

What makes angry birds not a video game? Or less of a game than say Tetris or PAC man?

This is actually the first COD game I have ever bought. My main reason was for the coop with the tv/gamepad. I picked up Black Ops 2, along with Zombie U, Mario, and of course Nintendo Land as the pack-in.

Epic + Call of Duty in the same sentence?? Clone of Duties are like the direct opposite of epic. Have you guys ever played one? They're super lackluster, bland and have bare bones "gameplay" (I put gameplay in quotes since CoD games don't really have gameplay and i do not consider them to be video games).

the only time epic and Call (Clone) of Duty should be used together is 'epic fail' and 'Clone of Duty', as in, "Clone of Duty is epic fail".

Thanks! I saw that apparently no one received a code for Nuketown but Activision confirmed it on their site. You should try emailing Amazon and Activision or wherever you ordered from.

Doesn't hurt to try, both Activision and Amazon had Nuketown listed as a preorder bonus so there's something strange going on. But yeah if you don't want to go through the trouble it's understandable. Maybe the map will just be in the disc? Or downloaded through the eShop.

It's ok that you're casual, you're talking on the Wii section of the site for God's sake

it being the wii/wiiu forum has nothing to do with being casual. To me being casual means you merely play games to kill time your not really playing for a deeper experience or difficulty and you rarely play buy games. Part of what makes you a casual are the games you play, if your playing social network games.solitaire, childrens' games, tetris, basically little games that you prolly wouldn't play for more than an hour then yes your a casual. I won't deny 2/3 of the wii library and some of multiplats are better experience on the other consoles. But that does not mean someone who's interested in wii.wiiu is a casual, you don't know the person at all. It might be my opinion but to me most dedicated gamers are multiplat gamers, if they don't own all the current gen console they prolly own 2 of them

I've spent significantly more time playing Tetris and some social network games than one hour. There's nothing wrong with being a casual gamer or playing casual games. I don't know why anyone wants to separate themselves from them. And Angry Birds is very fun. I don't know why anyone would say Angry Birds players are people "who hate games". That's such an oxymoron, because they're obviously playing the game because they enjoy, therefore they can't hate games.

You don't know that. All other DLC is coming to the Wii U, the box of the game even says "add-on content". NukeTown is "add-on content" after all.
#49 Posted by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

I googled and ended up here -http://www.callofduty.com/blackops2/nuketown-2025

Then I clicked on 'pre-order'

Then I noticed I had the option to click Wii U.

But, I also noticed that on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 - all of these have the Nuketown 2025 insignia in the foreground over the standard boxart. The Wii U does not :(

Who knows if this means anything, it could be an innocent oversight. But, I'm unimpressed.
