I have yet to find the black one, that you have.

Hopefully i can afford those 2 german exclusives when my birthday arrives in under 2 weeks :p
Is it worth getting all of them(the3 different guns)? Or atleast more than 1?

Worth it? I would say it all depends on your collecting goal.

If the Wii U will get as few games per month as it does now the total games for a full set won't be very high the day the console is discontinued. I guess that would make it an attractive console to collect a full set for in the future. In that case the value of these games may increase in the future... but there will surely not be an increase in value because it's sought after as a lot of people wish to play it.

Do you guys know any Wii U games i should ask for for my birthday?
I mean games that you can find in a store here in norway.

Is it best to ask for 1st party stuff like 3D world and donkey kong? I need tips

Yeah, the first/second party stuff is good to ask for Norway, in terms of both it being likely to be available and for being good games as well. This is just my own experience, but the likes of Pikmin 3, Mario World 3D, New Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong have all been really good fun.

Finally i decided to buy a wii u. But i have a doubt about the retro comptability. Can we play wii games with the new controller or we need to buy the wiimote? Can we play gamecube on the console?

@Kinogomes
You must have wii remotes (and often nunchuk) to play Wii games - or even accessing or navigating the Wii Mode.
There is no way to play GameCube games or use Wii accessories that make use of the GameCube controller ports on the original Wii.

You can play Wii games ON the GamePad - but you will still need a wii remote. I never understood the purpose of playing on that small screen when you still need to be far enough from it so you can point with the wii remote at it.

Does anyone know if Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 got a UK release? Looking to buy it to add to the collection but can only find it from other countries on eBay.

You can actually use Wii accessories that make use of the Gamecube port, just buy one of these adaptors, only costs about a tenner :D

I use one to play Mario Kart Wii on my Wii U with a Gamecube Wavebird controller 8-)

*Head spins* I'm really glad you guys go over this stuff, so much of this I would never have known, or at least not till it's too late and everything is silly money/out of print.

The description is wrong, works 100% with a wavebird, I've been using it for the past 6 months :)

Mario Kart Wii definitely supports the Wavebird, it's the only way I ever played the game.

Is anyone going for a full collection?

How many PAL titles [UK only] are out already, I was possibly thinking of going for a full collection, but don't want to end up falling short.

Are there any games that will turn out really rare? I'm only looking to complete the physical collection, not interested in downloads.

Does anyone think Tank! Tank! Tank! might be rare in the future? Any others to pick up?

I bought my Wii U last November, haven't really played much of it though.

I think the console itself is really good, but there hasn't been a game that has gripped me yet.New Super Mario Bros U and Luigi U are fun games to pick-up and play for half an hour here and there, nothing majorly new from previous titles.I tried to get into Zombi-U and Monster Hunter, but wasn't impressed with either, maybe because I wasn't very good at either.NintendoLand and Sports Connection are average multi-player games.Batman Arkham City is a nice looking game, but I found it quite repetitive and a bit of a button basher.Apart from that, I've found Lego City Undercover to be a really fun game, about the best of the bunch I've played.Haven't opened my copy of Zelda Windwaker or Rayman Legends yet, so hopefully both of those will be fun.

Looking forward to trying Super Mario Land, Donkey Kong and the new Mario Kart when I get my hands on them sometime this year.

Just a note to others, Tank! Tank! Tank! is completely out of stock in GAME online and during a phonecall, they confirmed they have none in stock in any store either.

I've managed to reserve a copy with instructions for £15, but it seems like the physical release of this game is a goner now, so if you want it, pick it up next time you see it. Zavvi seem to have stock, but not much other places do.

Tank! Tank! Tank! had a limited physical release as they went Free-to-play with it instead. Good call on a future hard-to-find game.
