    ...you're seriously stocking up on groceries on Saturday so you won't have to leave the house for ANYTHING.
    ...your calendar's wide open until Christmas
    ...the window of your local game store is dirty with your drooling.
    ...you break up with your girlfriend and ignore your children for anything non-wiiU specific.
    ...before the first weekend is through, you will have gone to the toilet with the wiiU controller.
    ...it's a bummer the game store REALLY didn't hold a midnight launch party...but you're not going back home for fear of not being the first customer.
    ...you're getting a week vacation just for this*


    Anyone else got some? :)

    (both real and comedic options are allowed).






    *okay, I admit it: I did that. But mostly because I can hardly take vacation from my job as it is.

    Isn't the Wii U family friendly?

    ...when you keep calling the store you made your pre-order with about "will such-and-such be available", even after they've given you an answer.

    When you have to get it as soon as possible even if it's the white one rather than wait sometime after the rush and save up the money to get the black one.

    I did that too. I did it for the Wii launch too.
    But I was a little forced to take vacation, as I never take them at the first half of the year, and find myself at the end without knowing where to put them. At least, I'm making them useful :P

    I'm not overly hyped, just curious and a gamer.

    im curious to know if you can take the controller screen thingie out on a trip without the console and still play a game....but wouldn't that make the 3ds pointless besides the 3ds only games?
