Welcome to The Off Topic Lounge: Wara Wara OTiiverse Plaza Edition!

And you thought Nintendo was bad at naming things! Ha!

WaraWara.jpg

I'm also clearly bad at drawing.

Even though Nintendo has tried its best to make this lounge redundant by creating the incredible world of Miiverse, we won't be defeated that easily! It might be a different story if more people would actually buy a WiiU, but whatever, you can wait for the inevitable price drop and firmware improvements and be better off for it if you want. But those of us who have taken the plunge can DRAW to each other. So THERE!

Rules:

1. No spamming - "Off topic" doesn't mean "random and pointless." That's what the Funky Barn Miiverse Community is for. Check it!

2. No trolling or flaming - Be nice, even to Jaysonguy. He HAS to get banned one of these days anyway, right? RIGHT?!!

Maybe one of those boxes under the Christmas tree will be your very own WiiU, waiting to be unwrapped and hugged all over. But even if it isn't, we can all still snuggle up around the tree and wara wara to each other aaaalllllllll year long....

Haz beat me to the first post

Oh of course because I was playing my Wii U!

Instead of what he's doing, beating me to posts

What's your job that you can play games while you work?

I just took a couple minutes to look back at previous years' OT Lounges. 2009's Gamecube Wiimake Version had by far the most activity with over 16,000 posts! To put that in perspective, this last year's edition only had 3671 posts.... That's not really surprising considering there has been almost literally no other reason to come to this forum for the last year except for this thread. :)

Hopefully the WiiU brings more people here. We already have an awesome core group, but new people would be GREAT. If anybody has been lurking but not posting here, STOP IT! Just post already!!

16,000 to under 4,000?

You should shoulder the blame

Jaysonguy

The Gamecube Wiimake first post was definitely my favorite. And it's a known fact that the only reason anyone posts here is because of that first post, so the sheer obnoxiousness of the title of this one guarantees that it won't make it past 1000.

#12 Posted by roboccs (6859 posts) -
All right! New OT!! I have been busy all day today but have been dying to know if the new OT would be made. Thanks for not letting me down Jordan. And yes, the only reason to come to the Wii forum last year was this thread! That being said... I have no idea what the new name means... I guess I'm gonna have to get me a WiiU one of these days.

Or say something mean about Call of Duty in the title... that'll attract some new members.

What's your job that you can play games while you work?

Lab tech in a steel/ pipe mill. Sometimes hours waiting on samples. 12 hour shifts makes for long nights. At least tonight is double time and a half

Double time and a half... Nice! Sitting around with nothing to do... sucks.... Hopefully you work with some decent people to help pass the time.

Nice OP. I think I lost some of my brain cells because I had to answer something about communism and socialism on SW.

#23 Posted by GreekGameManiac (6439 posts) -

I was walking home the other day,and noticed Master Chief's helmet model thrown near the trash..

Wtf?

Why would anyone throw it away???

Btw,here's a list of trivia for the Dragon Ball Z series.

My kid has been getting in to Mickey Mouse... whenever he watches it, I just feel like playing Kingdom Hearts. I should have finished that game, but I haven't played it for at least 2 years, I would have to start over. Also, I didn't really have anything to ask for for Christmas this year. I have all the games I can handle and I would never ask for a console or handheld because of the price... I asked for Amazon cards and whatnot... so I need to decide what to do with em. Maybe I'll stockpile them and save up for a new console.... tough call.

Man... Kingdom Hearts has been ruined. I loved KH1 and KH2 but that story is just ... sooooo confusing.

I was so scared of checking my final grades for days because I thought I was going to fail two courses, but I managed to fail one and I barely passed one.I also got insanely high marks in two.My GPA seems to be an overall improvement over my first semester.

I will laugh if it all melts in a week.Because aren''t most parts of texas usually above 60 degrees F this time of year.

Any good gamey gifts for you guys? My brother got Scribblenauts Unlimited on 3DS for me. He knew I'd never buy it for myself even if I wanted it, which is totally true, so that made me happy. My other brother got me a year of XBL Gold and immediately laughed and asked, "Will you even use that for anything?" to which I hesitated before I said, "Yeah.... HBO Go and stuff like that, and maybe another multiplayer game will come out." And I'll be able to get demos early and stuff, so it'll be nice to have.

As for giving, my brother and I got our brother Assassin's Creed 3 and a 360 controller with a dongle for PC. And I was just talking to him about it, and he didn't realize that Brotherhood and Revelations even existed, so he started AC3 before finishing AC2 (he was near the end but was borrowing a 360 from a friend and wasn't able to finish it). I told him that he absolutely can't play AC3 without knowing the ending to AC2 and being at least somewhat familiar with what happens in the other two. So if he can hold off till his birthday in March, I already have a gift idea for him.

God I love when that happens.

There's more of something you love and you never knew it existed.

#36 Posted by GreekGameManiac (6439 posts) -

I had an awesome day!

Had the most delicious toast,and met this girl..

We went out and had fun,then home for movies,videogames,and censored stuff.

Jordan is away to see family,but she wouldn't mind that(we have an open relationship).

I got a WiiU for Christmas!! My awesome wife and mother in-law totally suprised me with it!! They dropped this heavy box on my lap and I was like "What the heck is this thing?" I couldn't believe how heavy it was. I'm so pumped!! :D

I went through all the initial setup so far, made a Mii with the photo option (my wife and I were cracking up how big it made my nose). I tried to run the update but there was an error in connecting so I played nintendoland for awhile which was quite fun, especially the DK race one... freakin addicting.

Now I am finally running the update and it's about a third of the way done. I don't have any other games right now but am looking forward to checking out miiverse tonight or tomorrow. I assume I'll be playing my wii games on it for awhile as there really is nothing out right now that looks that interesting.

Still, there's nothing like getting a new console, ahhh the new console smell...

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Awesome,i'm jealous!

Lol i'll get a Wii U in the next few months.

GreekGameManiac
It's crazy. I had no intention of getting it any time soon. But now that I have it, I am really glad. I can't even think of a game to get. I got an amazon gift card and some spending money for Christmas as well as a late January birthday coming up so there is opportunity there to get a game. The WiiU version of NBA2K13 supposedly turned out good so that's a possibility I guess. Or maybe I'll wait for Mario Kart to come out. Companies need to realize how great the gamepad would be for RPG's and make the WiiU the home of the RPG this gen.
#40 Posted by GreekGameManiac (6439 posts) -

Lol i'm pretty sure they'll announce a few in 2013.(the Monolith Soft game must be one)

Personally i'll be content with Nintendo Land bundle + NSMBU,but i may get Aliens Colonian Marines when it comes out.

As for Darksiders II,and NGIII,i'll wait for trilogy packs.

Suckers,all of you.

Lolz.

Sorry guys! Still getting used to how everything works! Man, the nintendo community is so pushy! ;)

My id is Roboccs by the way

#47 Posted by WreckEm711 (6922 posts) -

Grats on the Wii U Roboccs! My cousin got one too so I got to play around with it a little bit, the controller isn't as big as I was expecting it to be!

So I've got nothing to do today and decided to get into Arc Rise Fantasia, and it keeps freezing on me at a certain cutscene, RIGHT when I started really getting into the game. Apparently the Jada freeze is a really common problem -_-

EDIT: Wooo fixed it! I would have been really disappointed if I had to stop playing it :P

It seems my "holiday videogame" will be Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

I was unaware there was a glitch that caused freezing in ARF. I am glad you are happy with my recommendation! :) I am actually about to perform my Wii to WiiU data transfer so wish me luck! I plan on fiddling with the WiiU tonight. Gonna play some Nintendo land and then probably some Wii games. Probably fiddle with the Miiverse stuff to so I can understand more how it functions.
