The colors of this forum and the terrible quality of all of the images burn my eyes so I usually don't come on much. If I do come on, don't be afraid to say hi! I'm not evil. Haha, I'm stretching my posts from Misc. Info alone!

But yeah, I'm just your neighborhood number. I'm not a bad person but I'm not always nice, even though I try to be.

Getting a 64GB or higher flash drive or a multiple-TB USB hard drive for the Wii U is smart if you want to dedicate the space to the Wii U. You can't use the flash drive or USB hard drive for anything else without formatting; none of my computers recognize a device being inputted. I didn't check with Linux's lsusb function because I'm too lazy. I'm not sure about my SD card (which was modded for Smash Stack but I haven't actually activated it yet) but I'm guessing that it doesn't apply to that because you can't use it like a USB hard drive.

Also, USB drives take priority over the system drive. Meaning that when you download a demo or a game or something, if you have a USB drive, it goes there first, and if you have a USB drive in your Wii U, it'll load from there before loading from system memory.

You can insert more than one USB drive. I just don't have any more so I don't know what the priority between them is.

I wish I knew all of this before plugging in my 32GB flash drive.

Also, the Wii U doesn't have USB 3.0 capabilities, so getting a newfangled hard drive with USB3 support is not worth it for the Wii U. I don't have one but I thought it would be good to know.

It will need the updates. If I remember correctly, proper USB hard drive support wasn't implemented until an update. Well, you'll need the updates anyway regardless, since you can't do a damn thing without them.

Seriously, though, if I knew all of this I would've just went with the Wii U Basic. I wasn't interested in Nintendo Land (but now that I have it it's fantastic) and I don't need the charging cradle (although it is nice), plus the white Wii U would've matched my old Wii much better. Oh well, though, I have my Deluxe.

For the record, I don't remember if I mentioned this exactly, but I'm posting this here because it's something I wish I knew before I bought the Wii U.

Good to know. I am interested in getting the Wii U(as soon as a good wack of games that catch my interest are out) and all the info I can receive will always help in making a smart buy.
If I think of anything I'd like to know before I buy it, I might shot you a PM or something, 7. Just to get some info from someone who actually has one. Smile

I'd be happy to answer any questions anyone has of the Wii U! As long as they aren't comparisons to the Playstation 4 or the Xbox One; I don't have either of those and, indeed, have no interest in them. (Alright, I'll still probably get the Xbox One, but solely for Halo, since that's my favorite game series of all time (remember, I'm entirely weird). I don't really care about the specs or anything.)

I'd like to point out, before you read this accidental wall of text, I can answer any general question about the Wii U. I can't answer things about, let's say, homebrew, or specific questions about in-game things. I don't have every game, after all. Think of me as your personal, private Nintendo sales associate! Except that I don't actually work for Nintendo. And I'm actually really bad at selling things.

In terms of "a good wack [sic] of games", I'll make a little list of suggestions of games that either are already out or will be out before 2014. So, not Super Smash Bros. 3U, and not a lot of games that were announced in E3.

Spoiler:
 

edit: lol, this isn't little at all! I spoiler'd it, it's really big and is just me rattling off a whole hell of a lot of games that interest me primarily and you secondarily.
