I agree with the other guy. The controls just take some getting used too, but eventually you get it.

I was enjoying the game very much too, but got to a part that made me really frustrated.

You get to a point where all your upgrades are reset, and you only get a small percent back.

Just to clarify for some of you arguing with this guy, Nintendo's fiscal year is April 1st to March 31st. He said this fiscal year, not since launch in November 2012, but since April 1st 2013. Bearing that in mind, I agree that they won't reach 9,000,000 sold between April 1st 2013 and March 31st 2014.

I'm not sure I would say any of the games currently available are "must have," but I can tell you my three favorite thus far.

1- Lego City- I love all of the parodies and spoofs in the game.

2- NSMBU- It's the only mario game thus far, and while it felt kinda stale, it kept me entertained for a few weeks.

3- Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed- I really enjoyed this game. It's holding me over til Mario Kart comes, and does a great job at that.

Same here. Until this game came out, I had lost some faith. It's now been restored, and I'm anxious for the next big games to come out. I feel you on the 2D Mario front. Yes, I enjoy the 2D Mario games, but they're starting to feel stale to me. All of the side scrollers from the NES and SNES still have high replay value for me, but these new versions are just missing something for me.

To any Wii U owners out there on the fence as to whether or not buy this game, go ahead and buy it. It's awesome. It uses many features of gamepad. It's very similar to the previous lego games, and is much much larger. My favorite thing about the game is definitely the dialogue. So many cheesy parodies of famous police shows and movies; it's awesome. Best of all, everybody in my family that has come in contact with the game, has enjoyed it. It's got enjoyment for all ages.

I would definitely recommend it to anybody that enjoys games period.

That sucks. If you don't want to wait the extra few weeks, and want the physically copy, try Target. I just picked up a copy at Target yesterday. Check their website first to if it's in stock at any store near you. My store said "limited stock" and they meant it; they only had one copy of the game.

Good luck.

I noticed you specifically said you dislike Starcraft, but you made no mention of Warcraft. Have you tried it? It's not just the lameness that is known as WoW, it started off as RTS games. Also worth mentioning is the Stronghold series. They're a little outdated, but Stronghold Crusader is still fun to play. A game I bet you'll love is Company of Heroes. It's the most beautiful looking RTS series in my opinion. I would play it now, because next year a new Company of Heroes game is coming out. It's gonna be awesome.

First of all, I tried finding a "Contact Us" area so I could take care of this issue privately, but couldn't, so here I am.

I got an email titled Please Respond: GameSpot Loot Drop Winner!

It reads like this,

It seems fishy to me that I would be contacted via email about being a winner, but received no pm here on the website. Is this legit, or am I just being spammed?

The suspicious email address is tiffany.muriel at cbsi dot com

Please let me know if this legit or not.

And if it is, will I actually receive my prize this time? I came in 5th place in the greatest game hero contest, and am still waiting on my free one year subscription to gamefly. :p

Thanks for your quick and helpful response.
