    I thought to myself that I was done buying the Wii U games I wanted but turns out there's some quality games on physical format still worth getting before their price increases.

    So far I've purchased Shovel Knight, Mighty No. 9, Devil's Third, Star Fox Zero and Sniper Elite V2 (this is just for collector's purpose because it's factually the worst console version). I try to always buy the English European releases as I don't fancy covers in Portuguese/Spanish/French/Italian/German plus, the resale value would also be lesser as collectors don't care as much for those either (unless they don't exist in English then that's OK).

    Next up for me are Paper Mario: Colour Splash (I know, they use the American spelling), Fast Racing NEO, SteamWorld Collection, Teslagrad and Sonic Boom (it's terrible but it's a Sonic game and it received a large update to fix issues while breaking others). Oh, and Darksiders II since I have Darksiders I on pre-order anyway.

    Not going to bother get Star Fox Guard on disc since the demo is more than enough and I haven't even finished it (pretty damn boring -- it's just a tower defence game).

    If anyone has any titles to recommend feel free to post.

    My current collection:

    CoD BO2 is a good game but the story mode was really boring and the online mode is mostly done for.

    Same boat here :P Recently picked up Fast Racing NEO (digital) and Pikmin 3.. The only game I'd still really like to get is Pokken Tournament. I have Star Fox bundle and I have to say I enjoyed Guard way more than SF Zero. One game I always recommend when I get the chance is Yoshi Wooly World. Its a bit on the short side but IMO its the best 2D platformer nintendo has made since Super Mario World. Almost every level seems to have a unique gimmick done very well... and its very colourful and uplifting.

    Is Sonic: Lost World on Wii U any good? That's probably the only appealing one that I don't have.

    The game's a lot of fun to play but the controls, that you have to learn it for yourself since the game does an arsey job at it. Collecting the red rings is a Son of Eggman but thankfully you have 100 lives so you pretty much have infinite tries.

    Spoiler: It's a short game.

    I will stick to the Brazilian method, I own on disc the bare minimum for me so far

    Stuff I own on Disc:
    Mario Kart 8
    Wind Waker HD
    Twilight Princess HD
    Nintendo Land
    Scribblenauts Unmasked

    Stuff I own digitally:
    NSMB U (original one under 2GB, not the Luigi U combo that is over 13GB in size)
    Lego City Undercover
    Pikmin 3
    Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii VC)

    At least I do not own Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on Disc like one of my friends :tpi:

    Sonic Boom Wii U has a really bad rep but despite the glitches it feels like it could be fun. For the wrong reasons, of course. :tpi: With the NS coming back the retailers are gonna reduce the prices of Wii U stuff and I will be sure to buy whatever's profitable and for myself. :tpi:

    Btw, some more time of honesty: I like scalping people but it's not my fault people buy it. They're willing to. :tpi:

    Before the Switch is released I am stealing all the games I can. Turns out there is some quality shiiiiit out there and I'm just gonna download directly from Nintendo servers. I'm so guileless its funny. Why are you buying them again? Because they are on disk format? Hahahahah.
