    I loved Zelda games, and still do :V (I'm no good at stealth, and had to hack an infinite jump in majora's mask because I couldn't get past the deku kingdom guards.)

    A question, if I buy a Pokemon game from the eShop, can I play it on my Wii U? :3c I already know the answer is no for games like Pokemon X/Y. I wanted to know if YOU knew that.

    I don't and will not touch racing games, nor fighting games. Sorry Gadiel.

    Monster Hunter is an Action RPG, it's just entirely gear based. There are a number of sets and buffs you can get in even low rank that significantly increase your survival too (and upgrading your armor significantly reduces the amount of damage you take. I'm doing High rank quests and it takes a lot more than 2 hits to kill me with the set I use.

    I'm talking older ones like for the PSP :V Which are the only ones I've played.

    I also have no online friends who use a Wii, nor IRL, so I can't really give away my Wii friend code out much even if I had a Wii U.

    That's what Miiverse on Wii U is for: you can find hundreds if not thousands of people who play any game by going to one of the communities. You can also jump into random gaming sessions on MH3U.

    No excuses, go play lol.

    Sure, first give me like 800 USD for a Television. Won't be able to get a television until like November or so if I save up for it myself.

    You dont need a tv for wii u (well certain games you dont and mh3u is one of them) since you can play them on the gamepad or use the gamepad as a tv and play with a controller. They got sales for a 32gig for like 250.
