    I got Sonic and the Secret Rings through Gamefly and popped it into my WiiU. After starting the game up I was instantly met with an error message stating that a problem has occurred. I was forced to unplug my WiiU in order to shut it off (holding the power button didn't work). The same game works just fine in a real Wii. Brawl works on the WiiU though... Anyone else have a similar problem?

    Ninty added protection on the Wii U to prevent users from playing shit games.

    Good Sir, are you implying that NSMBU is a bad game. Because NSMB 2 on the 3DS was the most fun I've had on my 3DS, and the first game that I finished for it as well, in the 6 months I've had it. If that is any indication of the quality of NSMBU I'd have to say you're wrong.

    Amma gonna buy an awesome triple-core Next Generation gaming console with superb graphics capabilities and then I'mma gonna play a Wii-quality platformer on it.

    Do yourself a favour, wait till NSMBU is cheap as dust, in the meantime, get AssCreed 3. If you played one NSMB, you played them all, and that doesn't mean they're bad - they're just repetitive by definition. I'm sure it's a great game, but it's not "$60 great" by any means, not even by a long shot.

    Sonic on the Wii is the worst Sonic experience I've ever had, and I've been "with Sonic" since the Genesis/Mega Drive era. The only good games on the console are Colours and half of Unleashed.

    Have not tried Colors, and I tried Unleashed. Disliked it. SaTSR was the only Sonic game that I actually beat. I found the Arabian Knights theme, and mini games to be quite enjoyable.

    Are you saying Asscreed isn't repetitive? Played one, you've played them all.

    I strongly suggest trying out Colours, SaTSR isn't even in the same league.

    Oh, and Sonic Generations was a good one. I'll try out Colors.

    First off, Good Sir, NSMB Wii (Not Wii U) is still going for $40-50, and NSMB is still going for $30, so I doubt it goes down in price.

    Second, you're telling me that NSMBU (The forth title in the series) is more repetitive then AssCreed 3 (The Fifth game in the main line, not counting the other 5 spin-offs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin's_Creed )? Good Sir, I don't think that's possible.

    Third, Good Sir, is implying that the more complected a game is the better it is, and I just can't agree with that.

    Comparing the level of complexity of both games and the effort put into them by their respective developers is like comparing the Mona Lisa with a 5-year old's finger-painted picture.

    When Sega released a side-scroller in the NSMB-style, they at least had the decency to price it approprietly. NSMBU is not worth $60 in my eyes, sorry.

    The answer is as follows: the sandbox isn't perfect, report it to Nintendo and perhaps they'll iron it out. Remember, the system is new an a lot of titles may and likely will behave in an unexpected fashion.

    did you check the most obvious and make sure the disc is not scratched or dirty? i know rental discs can be battered as so many people use the discs.

    My favorite Sonic is actually on the Wii >.< I really loved Sonic and the Black Knight, maybe that's because my favorite was king Arthur's age but yeah... I know people call this very mediocre and I haven't heard a single good thing about it but I like it a lot. I guess it's down to personal preference.
