Question for any other Wii U owners. My hard drive is getting full. How decently does the console function with games loaded on an external drive connected?

If I have a dedicated 3TB drive attached to my console at all times, will that functionally be no different from something loaded directly on the machine's HDD? I assume there may be additional load times associated with it.. idk
USB hard drive seems faster. I actually picked up one of those ones that isn't externally powered, but bought a USB Y cable (so takes up 2 Wii U USB ports) and it's worked fantastic.

The internal memory they used in the Wii U is slow as shit.

Nice. I have two WD externals (a 4 TB and a 3 TB) that I use for movies/TV... can consolidate all that onto the 4TB and use the 3TB for my Wii U, should be plenty of room for anything I can ever imagine putting on there

Cool

I own at least 90% of Nintendo published Wii U games digitally, plus some more from the launch when other companies were actually supporting it and I'm not filled up a 500GB yet. You should be golden.

I wish more of my titles were digital. I do most of my Wii U playing in bed using Off-TV play, and swapping discs is a chore. Is there an option to get a digital download of games you already have the physical copy for? I'd probably play a lot more Mario Maker in that case

Yeah, I bought a cheap Y cable and plugged in an external drive. You could maybe get away with a single connection, but they recommend two just to be sure that the drive is getting enough juice.

There's no negative impact to running stuff off the drive. As Hasney said I think it might actually be faster depending. For a while I was using just a Sandisk USB stick. You can do that as well but people get terrified.

Nintendo games seem to be tiny. SM3DW is like 2GB or something.

I do wish I'd got more stuff digitally. I don't fully trust it yet, but I am somewhat done with the big stack of game cases you end up with. I generally buy digital now. It just sticks in my craw when it's still 49.99 vs 10 for a used disc copy sometimes.

I've never heard of using a Y cable for USB. I routinely stream to my HTPC using Plex from my externals using just standard single connections and as far as I know have not experienced any negative effects.. I'll read into that.


The lack of resale value and such is definitely the main drawback to going fully digital. I'm generally okay with that though, EB Games (Canadian GameStop) gives awful trade-in value anyway

I think the USB ports on the Wii U are lower voltage than most other things.

I stopped selling stuff a year ago and it actually made me spend less on games. Life's funny like that.

That makes sense, Nintendo isn't exactly bleeding edge with their hardware.

I've never been much for selling games in general. Probably a bit of a hoarder mentality. I still play a bunch of GBA games here and there, I like having something of a collection. I generally do prefer a digital collection though mainly for the convenience and accessibility of it all

I used to trade in a lot until 2004 when I started selling stuff on amazon. It actually played into my anxiety a lot over the years and I would repeatedly sell stuff and then pick it up again.

There's a part of me that doesn't trust digital but that's quickly dying. The only problem is that you get the weird prices. In the US it's usually $60/$60 on release, but here a physical release on amazon will normally be 30-40, and a digital game will be 40-60. If it was equal I wouldn't think twice.

I used to trade a lot as well, but man they really rip you off. Reselling like ROgerer said is a much better way to go.

My only issue with digital titles (at least on Xbox One) is that if your internet access is down, you cannot play your game, at least that has been my experience.

I get met with a "Do you own this game or app? Please sign in to verify" or something to that effect.

There was a thing on 360 where you could play digital games offline if it was set as your primary Xbox. Otherwise you'd have to connect to authenticate.

Please tell me thats the issue and that they actually don't enforce online checks for all downloaded games.

Yea.... I remember it being a thing on 360.

A quick search shows that I should set my One to "offline mode" under settings in order to achieve this.

Network outages are usually brief at my house (i need a new modem) so I never bothered with it. I would just load up something else.

Don't think that's true even on XB1 if your console is set as your home console. Live was down over the weekend and everything still booted.

I think it may be on a per game basis issue. I've had digital games that wouldn't run if Live was down but also have ones that will. It also may be tied to a specific Live service being on/offline at the time though. There are usually still several Live things running even when it is 'down'.

I thought it wad going to be episodic content as opposed to a full game, but they're charging full price for this.

I can't see one mission being worth 60 bucks no matter how much replay value it may have. Will redbox it though, for sure.

That gives you the entire game, so there's at least one mission per month until it's fully out in 2017, which is when the disc comes out.

Ah, gotcha.

Can't say I'm very enthusiastic about this new trend in gaming. It's like paying 20 bucks for one slice of pizza and the promise of more slices down the line.

I mean yeah, TECHNICALLY you are getting your moneys worth but it still feels like kind of a gyp.

I don't mind it. It's either buy now and start playing now (and after that last beta, give me a hell yeah) or everyone has to wait until 2017 for the full thing. Now, those that want to dive in early can do and those that want to wait for the full thing can.

Probably works best like this where it's not on store shelves until it's done.

Last I remember it got hammered really bad by the critics to the point it was scoring well below the first Hitman film and was legit in the running for worst scoring gaming film of all time.

Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive edition is on sale for 4.99. This version adds two new areas and some new abilities.

If you have any interest at all in 2d platformers, this is a no brainer, especially at this price. Fantastic game.
