I think the keys are tied to your e-mail adress, meaning that only the original recipient is able to redeem the code.

I'm playing the full game right now. Its Final Fantasy influences are quite obvious, but I like it a lot so far.

Mixed reviews? It has pretty much received universal acclaim. It's a fantastic game with solid gameplay and an intriguing story. I've played through it several times (Director's Cut twice) and I love just as much everytime. I'd say it's worth your money.

It should be noted that I've only played it on PC, so I can't really say if the Wii U gamepad adds that much to the gameplay. Either way, it's a great game and I'm sure it's great on the Wii U as well.

so its a bit bulkier.... what...so you cant play shooters and fighters now? you suck at using it? what ? its the same as a normal controller.

So you're saying that the form factor has no importance at all? Only the buttons matter? It's not just bulkier, it's an entirely different shape. Most traditional controllers are shaped the way they are becuase it's a form factor that works. I'm not saying that the Wii U gamepad is awful, it's a huge step forward compared to the Wii remote and nunchuck, which in my opinion were pretty darn awful in most cases. It's just not as good as a normal controller.

To each his own. Some people prefer the gamepad and others prefer a traditional controller. It's good that there are options, don't you think? If playing with a normal controller makes the game more enjoyable for some people, then what's the problem? No need to criticise people because of their preference, as you did in your first post.

Yes, most games support it.

your going to buy a 300$ console so you can play all ther games with a peripheral?

even when the gamepad is the exact same thing except with a screen in the middle?

ridiculous...

I purchased a Wii U so I could play some fantastic games. Being stuck with the gamepad is just something I have to live with. It's not the same as a normal controller. It's bulky and while it's fairly comfortable to hold, it's not the same a normal controller.

For me, connection between the gamepad and the console is stable within a 4-5 meter radius. After that is starts to get choppy. It should be noted that I have concrete walls, which is a real wireless signal killer. Could work better for you depending on the materials in your walls/floors/ceilings.

im not gonna sign it because i would much rather pay the 15 bucks a month then get nickle and dimed with micro transactions

Same here. I prefer the good old subscription model. Otherwise it feels like you are missing out a bunch of stuff.

For me it was generally Tekken 2 or 3. Years ago of course but that was about the only series I got into pretty heavily. I've just kinda stopped playing fighters since then.

Tekken 2 and 3 are pretty damn awesome. Tekken Tag is probably the best one, though. I've spent a lot of time with all of them. Tried Tekken 6, but it wasn't the same... at all. They've changed the fighting way too much. It's like every character is covered with Flubber goo, because they bounce around like crazy. Too much bounce in the modern Tekken games.

I tried using it, but it never got the settings right, so I got rid of it.
