@crithon: Suddenly a lot of things make sense. I had no freaking idea where the Wayne Brady Mii came from and was really confused. I just remembered that on a lark while waiting in the drive through for hashbrowns at McDonald's I happened to have my 3DS connected to their network.
I didn't realize that's where he came from. Creepy. It's almost like Wayne Brady was hiding in a Happy Meal box.
@crithon: That must explain why Wayne Brady wanted in my 3DS so badly.
I was so confused...Why does Wayne Brady have Street Pass...and golden pants.
I feel bad for thinking that I'm looking forward to the Wii-U burning so that I can get one--and the few worthwhile games--on the cheap.
I also think at times about what cool stuff indie developers could be doing with the WU tablet. The tools are there: Nintendo provided Unity dev kits for the system to indie developers...but nobody seems to be biting.
Go with a TV with no frills. I recently upgraded as well and became starstruck by 3D TVs and smart TVs and yadda yadda. Do yourself a favor and go with something stripped down. It'll go a long way in cutting the price.
As far as specs, it depends on preference and your room. A lot of people speak ill of plasma TVs due to glare and burn in (which almost never happens anymore thanks to new technology), but my 60 inch Panasonic plasma is easily the best TV I've ever had, and only cost me around 600 or so. I've found plasmas to have superior black coloring, which I think is better for gaming in general.
I would look at Vizio, as they make some great TVs at the mid-range that have a solid and consistent picture quality.
Not harsh anyone's buzz, but I'd honestly suggest downloading the YouTube channel for Roku (a recent edition) and watch the videos from the official GB YT channel. I've been on a binge of the older stuff recently and that's the best way to accomplish the task besides finding a way to stream from the GB video buddy app to your TV via Chromecast or something else.
This might sound negative, but I'd like to see the crew get someone in with more of a hosting approach to their video content. Watching Ryan videos the last week, it reminded me how much of a presenter and mediator the guy was. His presence really facilitated serious discussion, and he knew when to change pace and tone. A great example of this is the Bioshock Infinite Spoilers video where they watched Vinnie finish the game live. Watching GOTY discussions and some of the recent live streams, they're really missing that person.
Also, Jeff looks afraid of the camera sometimes. Like a baby deer staring down headlights.
