Very Fun...Great gift for grandson...Great gift for grandson...What can I say about splatoon besides it is incredibly addictive, offers so much strategy and depth that would not be expected from a new ip so quickly, and an overall level of enjoyment that has been forgotten with the new age of fancy graphics and higher tech games....I would have never spent $60 on this game, but it is definitely worth the $35 Black Friday price.
You take the lead as your team approaches a clean new area, free of color and chaos. With a smirk, you take it all in — you'll soon change that. Two teammates begin spraying down walls, floors, ceilings and every other imaginable surface with ink, claiming this territory as your own with a vivid wash of your colors. You and another fighter scan the area for enemies. The opposition never sees you as you sneak up and douse them in an ink bath they'll never forget. This turf is all yours — it's time to move on and paint the whole world in your team's colors.
Get messy with Splatoon, a fun-filled third-person action shooter that challenges you to cover levels, and enemies, with a brilliant spray of colorful ink. Take on the role of an Inkling, a squid-like fighter ready to cover yourself and everything around you with your team's hues. Cover the terrain around you in ink to claim it, and spray walls to gain access to hard-to-reach areas. Earn high-powered super weapons by soaking your turf in ink, so you can cover your enemies in color or spray more territory. Put on your thinking cap to dream up devastating strategies, but don't forget to keep an eye on your turf — too much attention on the other team may lead to a redecoration of your own territory. Easily refill your tank or hide from enemies with just a touch of a button, or transform into a squid and dive into ink for a blazing-fast speed boost. Attack your own way with a multitude of control options thanks to the Wii U GamePad controller, including gyroscopic controls that let you look around, aim and more with precision. Band together with three friends and get online to take on other teams in four-on-four matches that will have you perched on the edge of your seat. A color-soaked battle awaits — are you ready to claim your turf?
Love it....It was a good gift for Father's Day....Great Gift for my grandson....When you first load up Super Mario Maker, there's just a basic set of course elements to work with; spending five minutes or so creating a course queues the next set of elements to unlock, and they are "delivered" either the next day that you play, or (if you spend long enough working on a course with the available elements) while you are building....I bought this game at a promotional early black friday price.
You've searched castle after castle for the princess, slid through too-many-to-count number of pipes, ridden Yoshi on thrilling adventures and tossed fireballs, flown, stood still like a statue and swam underwater. You've completed every level, found every warp world, battled with Bowser every time. You know the iconic levels so well, you can complete them with your eyes closed. Well, not any more.
Get ready for the most creative, exciting and challenging Super Mario game to date with Super Mario Maker. Design, create and play your own levels on your Wii U GamePad, and then explore those levels created by Nintendo and players from around the world.

Choose from four distinct themes, such as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U, each with unique art styles and features. Drop in the Mystery Mushroom item to transform into different characters at random, and unlock additional characters by completing 100 Mario Challenge mode or tapping in compatible amiibo figures. Are you ready to speed through courses in record fashion, battle Piranha Plant-shooting cannons, boost your abilities with powerup-tossing Lakitus and take on the Hammer Bros. riding on Bowser while bouncing on trampolines? Better yet, do all that, and then show off your own ideas.

The previous games in the Mario Kart franchise introduced some amazing features, so they're back for more in Mario Kart 8. You can still see who's got what it takes in 12-player online competitive play. Hang gliders and motorbikes are back, as well as underwater racing and mid-air tricks, while Waluigi and Toadette rejoin the cast of characters. As the icing on the cake, the crisp, high-definition graphics and 60-frames-per-second frame rate of your Nintendo Wii U ensure a visually stunning and vibrant gameplay experience that you won't soon forget.

Love it!...Makes an excellent gift for adventure seekers...makes a great gift....Captain Toad Treasures Tracker is a spin off of a mini game found in Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U. It's not really a full game, but at around 15-20 hours (depending on how much of a completionist you are), I think it's priced accordingly.
It's not always the biggest, brawniest guy that ends up winning. Captain Toad may be small and he may not be able to jump very high or run fast, but what he lacks in sheer strength and size he more than makes up for in intelligence and perception. Embark on a solo adventure as the brave Captain Toad in Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. Arrayed with only a neck scarf, backpack and oversize head lamp, you'll have to primarily rely on your resources of wit and perspective to make it through a dangerous world brimming with treacherous enemies, puzzles, traps and secrets. Are you ready to set off on a mind-bending adventure filled with hidden threats?
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker plants you in a world comprised of a wide variety of tricky, enemy-infested, maze-like stages where your main prerogative is to survive while you find hidden items and eventually nab the elusive gold star at the end of each stage. Each stage is its own puzzle that must be solved — all while collecting hidden items that are littered throughout in hard-to-reach places, such as gems, coins and powerups. Unveil secret locations and get a closer look at secluded dangers by using your Wii U GamePad's gyro controls to peer around. Do you have the necessary smarts to survive a profusion of puzzles, a ton of traps, plenty of platforms and an abundance of attackers? Survive each stage's secrets and seize the stars in Captain Toad Treasure Tracker.
So great...Great stocking stuffer as well....This was a great Christmas gift...In a culture often devoted to shock, gore, and vulgarity, Smash Bros delights in its ability to avoid all of these cynical tropes to provide gamers with a satisfying, delightful, even joyous mountain of chaotic gameplay....Came free in black friday bundle of Wii U deluxe!!!
