    Hello all!

    This thread was mainly created in response to the derailment adventures of the thread Wii U Hacking Discussion, but don't worry, anyone's welcome to join in ^_^ All that I ask is that if any thread in the Wii U - Hacking & Homebrew subforum gets derailed in favor of "debating the ethics of piracy", you kindly link them here and get on with your life. Please, do not feed the fire.

    With that said, flame on!*

    Alternatively, you can check out...
    -this thread by Tomato Hentai if you want to discuss piracy on a multiple-platform scale
    -
    this thread by pokemoner2500 if you want to discuss piracy on the Nintendo 3DS


    Also, for those that are into this sort of thing, here is an up-to-date list of all backup loader projects for Wii U games:
    -Loadiine, a network and/or SD based executable file replacement tool based on Caffiine
    (Link to project)
    -Cemu, the first PC emulator capable of rendering graphics
    (Link to project)

    *Please note that I DO NOT condone off-topic discussions or bullying/harassment of any manner, hence why this thread exists in the first place. If I see any behavior that I deem disrespectful, you WILL be reported (although I won't be very strict on the off-topic content, given that this IS a piracy debate). If a moderator wishes to edit, move, or lock this thread in any way for the betterment of the community, then please, by all means do so :)

    I think that if someone release a backup loader or a cfw a lot of people wil buy a lot of wiiu, is sad that there are no many games to pirate, the only ones are Super smash bros, mario kart 8, new super mario, injustice and zelda.

    What about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Wonderful 101 and Super Mario 3D World? There are plenty of good games, it's just that they're forgettable (mostly due to lack of advertising)

    Also Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, WWHD, and there's some other solid IP's; ZombiU, for example.

    I've heard some mixed feelings about that game. The main one being that it should have been an iPhone game :glare: All the same though, despite its length (or lack thereof) it still looks like a very solid, Nintendo quality game

    I just wish it would have been $10.99 DLC for Super Mario 3D World, I guess :P

    That would have been nice, but Nintendo likes squeezing every last penny out of all of their products.:D

    Yeah i forgot Super mario world, im not really interested in the other two, i think its a shame that wiiu doesnt get new and better games like: GTA V, fifa 15, Dragon ball xenoverse, street fighter, motal kombat,naruto and other games because a lot of people like me is interested in getting some of this games for wiiu. With more games like this im sure more will buy a wiiu and more people would be excited to pirate wiiu

    People who download backups/illegal files should be called something else than 'pirates' because it's not really the same as when the actual pirates who'd sail the seas with their ships and conquer the goods of others.

    Someone needs to come up with a catchy term and make it popular.

    By the way, hacking the Wii U for its games isn't really worth it as there's about only 10-15 worth it and then rest you could get on 360/PS3/PS4/PC/XO.​

    Jim Sterling calls us pedophile burglars.
    Also, piracy as a concept is what we are doing-stealing from the rich and enjoying the prizes ourselves.

    ALSO, I don't get why everyone's saying there's only a few games that are "worth it". That's not true for everyone; someone might really really want to play Assassin's Creed on Wii U, or something like that. You don't know.

    Is the Wii U powerful enough for GTA V? I mean, I know the model is generally "if the 360 could manage it, the U can too", but GTA V is pretty intensive on both space and resources

    Then again, Zelda U

    The WiiU might handle GTAV easyly. It is a bit more powerful than a X360 so...
