Watto's Junk Yard / Re: WiiU
« on: September 30, 2014, 08:31 PM »
Thanks guys.  The boys have never really been big fans of the Nintendo 1st Party games (Mario Cart not withstanding). They have mainly stuck with the Lego games and Infinity over the last year or so.  Knowing that both are available on another platform makes me think I'm done with Nintendo.  Well that, getting confirmation that playing the old Wii games on the WiiU is a bit of a hassle, and that WiiU might be the nail in the coffin for them.  I think I'm going to go a different route when we upgrade.  Now it's just a matter of deciding whether to go Playstation or XBox.  I used to own a PS1 back in the day so I'm thinking about going back to that again.

Need to resurrect this thread with a question for you guys.

We've had a Wii for years now, but they are not releasing Disney Infinity 2.0 on this platform, so my sons are pretty upset that they can't play it.  Does anyone currently own a Wii U?  If you do, can you explain what the deal is with the controller and the fact that you can only have one of them per system and need to get a standard controller(s) for multi-player games?  Is it really worth it to upgrade to this system vs. getting a PS4 or XBox One?  Our Wii is working fine, so they can still play the games they own on this system.  It's just a matter of whether we want to have two different systems in the house, or get the Wii U and be able to play all of our game.

Any help you guys can provide is appreciated.

Congrats Dressel!

And a fine job all around by everybody putting that Dutchman in his place.

I reminded him every day at work that he was in dead last...

Perfect, thanks McMetal!  Hopefully they will be released by Christmas; the past seasons have made perfect stocking stuffers for my kids.

Excuse my ignorance when it comes to all things Netflix as I'm not a subscriber, but has there ever been a series that was developed for Netflix ever released on DVD/BD?  I really don't want to subscribe just to watch these, but I fear I have no other choice.

I'd just like to see our quarterback stop making rookie mistakes like throwing back across the defense when there is a broken play.  I can't tell you how many times I've seen Cutler throw that interception since he's been in Chicago...

Oh, and a safety that can actually play the position.  I'm starting to think that I can dust off my cleats and play better than Conte.

I've seen the AT-ST driver as low as $275 on Yahoo Japan, so I guess I would have to say 'no' to your question.

Hey Mike, any update on this?  I'm watching the boys reading their Fangbone books before school right now and it got me wondering?

Caught this last night and thought it was great.  Definitely fits in with the rest of the MCU movies.  However, this leaves me wanting another movie in the space between now and Avengers 2!

Anyone watch this last night before the Rebels preview?  I thought it was great and held true to both Star Wars and Phineas and Ferb.  Can't wait for the next installment!

Looks like Hot Wheels is taking it to the next level...

Wonder if this one will end up in the Corvette museum after it hits Comic Con 2015.

Here you go guys, you just need to go to LA to get everything you want!

And it did answer my question about Green River being a local Chicago (soda) pop.

Is Green River a regional thing or is that everywhere?  I remember going to little league games as a kid and getting that at any concession stand that was serving it.  Loved that stuff.

Born and raised in Chicago and it was always 'pop'.  Had relatives that moved to Texas and everyone looked at them as if they were crazy when they ordered a 'pop'.  Took them years before they got used to everyone ordering a 'coke' wherever they went, even if it meant they were ordering a Sprite, root beer, or something else.

Yeah, Chicago has been signing short deals with some of their 3rd and 4th liners (e.g., Regin), or moving others to clear $ (e.g., Bolig).  I seriously think that they are more focused on trying to work out the Toews and Kane deals than courting anyone else.  But I'm by no means following this close enough to know if that's the strategy or not...

Was happy to see Keith end up as the Norris winner again this year.  Had a great regular season.  Thankfully they don't take the play-offs into account because I thought he faltered at times against the Wild and had a terrible series against the Kings.
