    I'm missing the Nintendo Land disc in the box and it looks like it's not just me. All the ones ordered from Amazon are missing the disc....

    Fantastic.

    Well yeah, but that was known in advance. This is supposed to have it in the box, the box even states it.

    Just been on the phone with them, it's known and they're sending them out seperatley within 24 hours.

    I'd love to. Unfortunately, I'm having to do that update through a 2mbit connection that is now down. Had to use my phone as a hotspot for the Wii U because I've read the horror stories of bricks if the update doesn't finish.

    Horrible game. Get Trine 2 instead.
    I think it was only NA that got that included.

    Slow, boring, and uninspired...

    Oh man oh man oh man! I'm boosting around like nobody's business! Got to solve these awesome puzzles, and compare my time to everyone else! Switching out the existence of bricks lie the fist of the north star!

    But that's off topic.

    Hasney, how goes the update?

    Had to buy a 1GB bolt on for my phone to finish the update. Didn't want to download anything else for now after that and my home Internet is still down.

    As for Trine 2 V Mighty Switch Force, I love Trine 2, but I've got it on Steam already, so I'm cool for now.

    Slow and boring? Uh dude, if it wasn't for the music, Mighty Switch Force would be a lot worse. It's the same thing each level. In Trine 2, it's at least a puzzle platformer forcing you to think, along with multiplayer, it makes a great game.

    SOME GOOD NEWS:

    Was in GAME buying a second hand copy of Smash Bros. Brawl (Homebrew yo) and talking about how I got my Wii U yesterday but no Nintendo Land and they let me have one of their "Buy this game with a Wii U console for £25" games for £25 straight up, so I've got me Tekken Tag 2.

    Thought I was losing my mind when I unpacked it, was wondering if it was included pre-installed on the console or something. As soon as the Amazon woman put my order number in she went "Oh... Yes, there is an alert for this product, let me read it."

    They're going to call me back apparently, other users have reported that they've been told to order the game and have the price set to £0.

    Hope they alert people who've ordered it or there's going to be a lot of disappointed people on Christmas day!

    I don't seem to have a club nintendo registration thing either, should there be one?

    EDIT: Ah, you just link the console to CN shop account to get them.

    Buddy in Scotland got his Wii U today from Amazon with Nintendoland. I wonder if it was one distribution centre where they fucked up.

    As he was mocking me for not having NintendoLand, he asked me if my pad rattled, which it did not and it turns out the right speaker on the gamepad was damaged in transit.

    WHOOPS

    They've sent me a code to download it from the eShop. Seems like they're sending it to everyone though, so people who actually got it will be able to download it and sell their hard copy.

    Yeah, just for it myself. Bit of a pity since I wanted to trade it once it was done, but the faster load times will be nice.

    My GameStop preorder came with it. It's surprisingly fun actually, especially the metroid one.
