Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Only a handful of Wii U launch games will display in native 1080p, with many games - such as the Mass Effect 3 Wii U port - rendering in 720p


But i read on the Nintendo part of the forum that every game would be 1080p and come with some kind of muffin. Pesky sources!
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

All wii games can be displayed in 1080p. If you use Dolphin or buy that weird converter thing that came out a few years ago. First time offically though.

No, but my brother was a plumber as am I. He was a lot more successful than I and had a strange obsession with the colour red.

WOW! It's like I'm in the future.

Really looking forward to getting my Wii U =D Shame about Rayman being delayed, but I guess it'll give me more time with NSMBU (Mario in HD!!) and ZombiU :D

Roll on November 30th!

Still looks in essence like Mario Brothers on the NES. Come on Nintendo stop living in the 80's and make some new IP.

Was he a murderer? I bet he's into animal cruelty too. Pfft bastards like that deserve to be sent back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. I'd love to see what he'd do when confronted by a velociraptor. Sick f**k would probably try to ride it or something.

+1 the only downside to NSMB on dolphin is the coins are rather low res but apart from that its awesome, however i'm hoping they'd play about some more with the graphical power they've now got rather than just add a higher more native resolution, heres hoping they'll add some new graphical effects :)

Just like current gen consoles games will be 720P and up-scaled to 1080P, there is only a few current gen games native 1080P. Quite sad that the system is that weak coming out how many years after 360 and PS3 :roll: Mario should be 1080P FFS look at it, not the most technical graphics I've seen.
