    Anyone going to the PlayExpo tomorrow in Manchester? I'll be going and they will have ZombieU and NintendoLand playable. Cannot wait!! Anyone have any tips with regards to streetpassing in large events, is there a streetpass cap?

    No tips, but the cap depends on the game. Mii Plaza has a max of 10, Kid Icarus has a max of 50, Mario Kart 7 has a max of 10 and 3D land has a max of 3. Don't know any others, but I think most are capped at 10.

    I live in Manchester. Where is it?

    Edit: Just looked it up. As if it's in the Trafford Centre. I used to live a 20 minute walk from there. Now it's like an hour away. Not sure if I can really be bothered tbh; I'm going to pick it up at launch anyway.

    Last week, there was a big game expo in The Netherlands, and the WiiU was also playable there! I played some games, and there is one thing I have to say to you: PLEASE, try Rayman Legends! I didn't even plan to play the game at the expo, but the first time I came at the stand, it was the only game which was not in use. So a friend and I started playing it, and it's both really stunning and fun!

    The WiiU Gamepad also is a nice piece of hardware, it's much lighter then you might think!
    I hope you have as much fun as I had while playing some games on this new console :)

    I live near the centre of town. I'd have to either get the 192 to town and get the 256 which goes to Davyhulme circle and then get the 23a to the TC and then walk from there, which would be well over an hour, or I could walk for 15 minutes to get the 15 to Davyhulme circle and then get the 23a again. Equally I could get off either in Stretford and get a 23a, but the point is: it'd take a long time. Probably more like an hour and 20 minutes.

    Holy carp, you guys missed out! Paper Mario, Castlevania and Professor Layton were playable, along with ZombieU, NintendoLand, NSMBU, Rayman Legends, some panoramic thingy, Darksiders (buggy as hell), Batman Armored and Tekken Tag. Huuuuuuuge queues though especially for Metal Gear Researgance and the WiiU, spent almost 2 hours collectively waiting for some WiiU game time.. Halo 4 was there too looked pretty sweet, absolutely massive turnout and some awesome cosplayer too.
    Even Mario was there himself! : https://dl-web.dropb....JPG?w=5c569926
