    So first off I know very little about it... After that being said I have a few questions

    1. What are some good games? Even pre orders that aren't out yet?
    Now I have seen certain gameplay of some games like black ops 2 I just can't see my self playing call of duty on a wii u so if possible don't suggest games like that no offense but call of duty is for Xbox and playstation...

    2. I'm sure this question was answered 100 times now I know currently the wii u can't play home brew and such but do you think it's possible in the future?

    3. Is the wii u deluxe bundle worth it?

    1- ZombiU maybe? I don't really like fps games really, and I don't think anything besides CoD is coming out.

    2- Yes you can, and even on the tablet it self, but running through the wii menu.

    3- There are only deluxe editions available, for me it was easily worth it as I already made more money than I lost with the 10% deal. Plus, the wind waker edition is just awesome.

    Only get Wii U if you are interested in first party game (game developed by Nintendo).

    1. Games I could recommend would be New Super Mario Bros U and Super Luigi U if you are into the previous entries, Pikmin 3, Zombi U and Rayman Legends. If you haven't played them before Batman - Arkham City, Need For Speed Most Wanted and Mass Effect 3 are pretty good ports. On eShop you could try Mutant Mudds, Duck Tales Remastered as well as a few Virtual Console titles like Earthbound.

    2. Maybe one day but not today.

    3. It's a fairly good package, although you could pick up a Wind Waker bundle and Classic Controller Pro probably cheaper than the deluxe package

    Reguarding #1, There isnt that many games for it right now and alot of them are superior versions of games that you may of already played.

    - Zombiu is a must have. fantastic survival horror and great use of the gamepad. Its scary tho so if you arnt into that then dont buy it, but its a great game otherwise.
    - Monster hunter 3U. The best game in the series and fantastic fun online with others.
    - Batman: Arkham city. Has all of the DLC that was released for the original game packed in which gives it a crazy high replayability factor.

    There are a few other ports such as Assassins creed / Deus ex / Mass effect. If you havent played them already then thats an option open to you.

    One thing i have to say that you dont buy is the new Need for speed: Most wanted. Its an awful game and iv actually took the liberty of digging out a review i posted about the game shortly after buying it:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    #2 i think the wii-u will get hacked eventually, It doesnt seem that stable of a console and there already ways to enable the hack in wii mode, its a matter of time before they work it out for the wii-u mode. So yeah i think it will get hacked in the future.

    #3 Yes.

    As for question 1, the Wii U games I am currently interested in are New Super Mario/Luigi U, Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2 and Zelda: Wind Waker HD. The last 2 are not out yet. Oh and Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 also looked very interesting in the E3 Nintendo Direct, but I have no idea when they are coming out.
    But I don't have a Wii U, don't have the money this year and are not all that interested in buying one (although a little bit more then XBone and PS4). So I am not sure if I am overlooking some niche titles.
    Question 2 should be answered sufficiently.
    And 3, in my oppinion if you want to buy a Wii U, you should get the Deluxe package or some similar game bundle. The Basic version has much too small system flash memory in my oppionion, even the Deluxe version could use some more. As about 5GB or so are for the system OS/firmware if I remember correctly.

    I've been asking this myself too recently i came to the following conclussions :

    1. What are some good games? Even pre orders that aren't out yet?
    Good games depend on personal taste, i'm not into Mario for example, however Assassins Creed 3/4 Are good games, however i rather have/get them on my 360.
    You get the Wii U for exclusives. Currently thats Wind Waker HD.
    In the future for me that will be :
    -Smash Bross Wii U (With Megaman :D)
    -Mario Kart 8
    -Zelda Wii U (Not officialy confirmed yet)

    2. I'm sure this question was answered 100 times now I know currently the wii u can't play home brew and such but do you think it's possible in the future?I dont know but there is a good chanche of that.

    3. Is the wii u deluxe bundle worth it?Yes i think it is, 8 GB storage is not much, Although in both cases easly expandable.
    In the Deluxe version you get the Nintendo Land game, which is a highly recommended game actually on this site. Along with 2 year Nintendo premium subscription (10% discounts on future E-Shop orders)
    Especially the Wind Waker Set is nice, and since its limited, if you really like it it may be nice to grab one up now.
    The only downside on the WW set is that the WW game comes as download and not in disc, and that will cost you about 6 GB of your 32.
