I was actually just contemplating picking up the Zelda Wii U for $299.

Should I not do that?

No. The Zelda Wii U doesn't have the game on disc, but only an online code. Considering Wii U eShop games are bound to individual hardware instead of a unified account, even die-hard digital mavens would be stupid to get Nintendo games that way. You're better off getting the New Super Mario/Luigi U bundle with both games on the same disc, then buying Zelda HD separately.

Hmmm that is concerning. My girlfriend is a big Zelda fan so I was going to get her that version for Christmas. It's quite stupid it doesn't come with a disc though.

Yeah, that shocked the piss out of me too, especially with the big deal they were making about the Hylian markings all over the pad and console. Seriously, they were too cheap for a disc?

For real though, get her the Mario bundle and the game separately. You'll not only have a more permanent version of Wind Waker HD, but you'll be giving her three of the best games the platform has instead of just one.

Get a pro controller too, as Wind Waker HD fully supports it should she wish to play it like the Cube one.

System, pro controller, Wind Waker HD, and Super Mario. Anything else?

The gloves that make you do a "Shoryuken" (he even yells it.) and the Blanka mask that does Electric Thunder are even better in my opinion.

So I am in a chat with someone from Amazon.

There was no note at the door, just the website and Amazon says that it was left at the door. They told me to wait as they are checking with UPS.

I am pretty shaken up right now, it was for my brother's birthday on Saturday and he is has been through a lot in the past while. I knew it would mean a lot to him to get an Xbox One.

It's an awful situation and I'm sorry you're going through it. :(

If it's any consolation Amazon is usually really good about making right by their customers.

Wait one of the reasons people are upset is because it includes knitting? Knitting is super in due to etsy and such.

It's one of the greatest games of all time.

I don't think it's voice... I think it has something to do with the controller and the connect thinking it's being smart about "oh... the player is back I'll unpause"

There are some issues that need shaking out that's for sure.

Yeah I'm really confused because Xbox commercials will come on TV where they say Xbox numerous times. But a pan banging in the kitchen seems to unpause the game. I also noticed when my girlfriend stood and left the room Dead Rising 3 went to the Home screen. When I opened it back up it had to reopen it. I don't know if it was a weird coincidence that it crashed at that exact time or the Xbox was being super weird.

@mooseymcman: I just wanted to say as someone who owns both Dead Rising 1 & 2 and never even came close to beating them (Seriously, look at my achievements for them) I'm having an absolute blast with 3 and encourage you to give it a shot in the future. It's a lot of goofy fun and a lot more accessible
