New Wii U games for 2013

Wii U owners rejoice! Nintendo have announced a flurry of games for the console featuring some Nintendo favourites.

Wii U bricking during firmware updates

The Wii U‘s hit a bit of trouble in the US on its day of launch. Once bought, customers realised it needed a firmware update of over 1GB which on slower networks could take more than an hour to download. People with dodgy connections reported interrupted updates and bricked consoles as a result. So the question is, is anyone in need of an expensive black paper weight?
