    I done the Wii to WiiU transfer process twice. For my Wii and my good ladies.
    Watched the pikmin video twice.

    Awesome show guys. Great start to the new year. Matt even said name right once in the show! Although I could tell the disappointment in his voice when he found out I’ve been playing Hay Day!

    Cheers for playing the full SOOGL and telling the story so well. A couple of minor differences from the email, but hey I’m just glad to be a part of the show along with the community!

    Great to hear Daren’s views on the WiiU. I really wasn’t sure about the second screen on the controller or the weight so it’s good to get an open and honest opinion on the hardware.

    Looking forward to the next show guys.

    I don’t have a WiiU, but when I did the 3DS to 3DSXL transfer, i also got some Pikmin love!

    As for retiring the Wii, I’d keep it active purely for the ability to play Gamecube games in 480p (trust me, a 480p cable for the Wii costs a damn sight less than the GC one, and GC’s look pants on HDTV’s through scart).

    Kudos to BeanEdge for the Castlevania story- It was the first game I bought on my NES, and I still love the (2D) franchise to this day.
