Following the way Super Nintendo games were often named, it'd be Super New Super Mario Bros
I'd be OK with Super New Super Mario World tbh. Maybe throw a hyper in there: New Super Mario World Hyper.

Super Wii works with other titles as well:

Super Zombi
TTT2 Super Wii Edition
Super Wii Fit

Holy crap! Today's real megaton is that more than two people can have the same first name.

Just saw a Wii U commercial during the X Factor in the UK (finally - those rumours came to pass!).
Yes, Rylan's still there.
It's the first I've seen since the Homeland "Sping Sping Sping" one.

$10 says my "EatChildren" account gets banned/blocked, just as it was with EA.

Yep, I'm not even going to attempt to use my Xbox Live gamertag - Walt Jisney.

I'm surprised its lasted as long as it has on Xbl tbh.

Anyway, I have another name already sorted for my NNID.

Was on the Gamestop Wii U wait list. Never got a call to pick mine up. Just walked into my local Gamestop and they sold me a Deluxe Wii U no questions asked. Not concerned about whether or not I was on any wait list. And Gamestop said they were not selling any consoles off the wait list... guess not.

You know I was very critical of NSMBU on launch day but once you get past the really shitty first few worlds the game becomes fucking awsome and the graphics look beautiful. I think it just might surpass SMW.

Is there a sweet spot? Eg does it need five players to really sing, or is 3-4 ok?

With three people it was fun but playing with four it almost seemed like Mario had an easier time. Don't know if we were just getting used to it or if the running speeds are different but with three people Mario was caught the most.

Pikmin Adventure is what really sucked our group in. Mario was a blast, but once we started playing Pikmin time just vanished.
I found that one a bit too chaotic to really enjoy.

Zelda's quest mode with a group is fun too.

Since we're on the subject what are considered the best NintendoLand attractions overall?

The Animal Crossing, Mario, and Luigi's Mansion games sucked me and my friends in. I would have never expected such fun out of them. It's amazing how terribly the entertainment of these games were conveyed during E3 and the majority of Nintendo's presentations.

I've only played single player. My favorite is DKCC. It's so challenging and addicting. I'm still trying to beat the second board. I also like the three "mission" based games (Pikmin, Zelda, Metroid). Yoshi and Balloon Trip have been surprisingly enjoyable as well.

I am honestly pleasantly surprised as to how much i really enjoy Nintendo Land. I played Metroid Blast and Zelda a ton with my Bro. Played Luigi's mansion, Mario Chase and the Animal Crossing game a bunch with my family.

I've only played singleplayer as well and besides F-Zero, the games I have played have surprised me in their high quality.

Metroid is outstanding, Balloon Trip is a personal favorite, Yoshi's Fruit Cart is really clever despite nothing to look at and Pikmin is a lot better than I thought it'd be.

I'd have to say Metroid Blast and Balloon Trip are my favorites so far.

Zelda's decent too and I never thought I'd like it from the videos.

In Japan their commercials are calling it a Super Wii, I agree, after seeing Nintendo call it that it should have been the name.
People keep misinterpreting that. It doesn't say Super Wii, it says Super na Wii, which is a little like saying "a Super-y Wii" or "a Wii that is Super". It's very much giving it an adjective to describe it, and not using it like a name.

Sorry but I think "Super Wii" is something that only appeals to those who grew up on SNES, or children. You should just as well hope for Extreme PlayStation or Ultimate Xbox. Sounds like 90s toys.

Mostly nonexistent. Don't really hear it

I would recommend Nintendoland and NSMBU. Nintendoland has several very good multiplayer games like Zelda, Animal Crossing, Pikmin, and Mario Chase. Plus some of those go up to 5 players, so if you have a large group mostly everyone can play at once :) NSMBU is the typical mayhem, tons of fun and death getting through Mario stages. It's slightly more difficult than its predecessor on Wii(NSMBWii) and a few more tricks for the Koopalings.

Mario Kart Wii is excellent and well polished. Dokapon Kingdom is an amazing mix of RPG and board game. Smash Bros. can obviously be a lot of fun. Wario Ware is great for parties, as is NSMB Wii. House of the Dead: Overkill is a fun game for two people; You could trade off and on every chapter. Same goes for Sin and Punishment.

For the Wii U, Nintendo Land is the obvious answer. There are a lot of good competitive games (Mario Chase is amazing), and plenty of co-op games too (Metroid is the best, but a bit too complicated for non-gamers at first, Zelda is a bit simpler and pretty). ZombiU has a fun capture the point sort of multiplayer where one player on the Game Pad spawns zombies and the other players with Wiimote controls battle for capture points.

How's the fan noise on the Wii U?

No noise from our system. No disc noise either for us, drive runs really quietly. And no real heat either, runs cooler than our Wii.

I thought ZombiU required a pro controller? Am I wrong?

Did I miss something or did they go back to buying in set dollar amounts. Can't you pay what you want on the 3DS eShop?

I might be the one that's wrong here, but I swore people were using Wiimote for it in multiplayer. Sadly I haven't had the chance to check it out yet with other people, just watched videos of it pre launch.
