Few Questions about Wii U

Nintendoland: I know some of the games are multiplayer and others are solo only but can I play the multi ones by myself? Can I play Metroid Blast alone, choose whether I want to be in the ship or on the ground and the compter AI take over the other role? I want to play all these games but might not have other people to play with. TVii: The more I see of this feature the more I like it. Can I watch the shows/movies etc on the gamepad if I want to? Everything I've seen about it mentions Tivo only, will it work with other DVRs too? Wish List- I think this would be a cool feature. Let's say there's a movie I want to watch, it's not airing right now and it's not on Netflix. I don't want to watch it so bad to go out to rent or buy it so I figure "oh well" But if there was a wish list, that I could say be on the lookout for this movie, 3 months later (after I've long forgotten about it) a message comes up saying that movie you wanted is airing next monday on HBO or is now available on Netflix. Gamepad - Did they ever say what the range of the pad was? Could I take it and play in bed?

Probably only for Tivo to begin with. The range of the gamepad is about 24 ft, whether or not you can take it in another room depends not only on distance but on the thickness of your walls.

Yeah I'm not too sure about anything in Nintendo Land, but hopefully multiplayer games can have bots. It has been confirmed that Netflix will run on the gamepad if you want, I would imagine Hulu and Amazon will too but I haven't seen anything about it. Last time I heard Nintendo was working with cable companies but only Tivo has been confirmed so far. Of course all you'll get out of the deal is probably access to your guide and remote controls (the gamepad does have an IR sensor on it so it can be used as a universal remote). Don't expect to view cable or DVR recordings on the gamepad though, just access to your guide and some advanced remote functions.

I had another question about the Wii to Wii U transfer of WiiWare and Virtual Console games. Does anyone know if it's an all or nothing transfer or if I'll be able to pick and choose which games I want to transfer. Also does it transfer the files or copy them? I am keeping my Wii and will have it hooked up in another room. Will I be able to have my wiiware and VC games on both consoles?

We aren't sure on all of that yet as Nintendo hasn't really given many details. It will transfer files over, they have said that so don't count on having games on both systems. I know it's done wirelessly similiar to the 3DS transfers. I'm not sure if it will be everything or pick and choose yet. They did pick and choose going from DSi to 3DS, but 3DS to 3DS is everything. So both have happened before. I hope it's pick and choose as I'm giving my Wii to my son and I would like to give him some of my games.

don't see why not, but if they aren't ( i'm not sure), they only take like a minute or two to make.
