A Word for Wii-U Santa,
This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Console - 32GB Black Deluxe Set (Console)
If you are giving this Wii-U as a childrens' gift, PLEASE do yourself a favor and hook the system up and do the downloads/updates before you wrap it up. I am a grown man, but still grew impatient waiting for the Wii-U to become playable. A child waiting to play this is unbearable! This was a gift for my young son, although I must admit that I've played it just as much as he has.

Do you really need an update to play? What about those without internet? That would mean I will cancel my order as I dont have internet.

You might cancel your order then, you don't need it to play yet, but it adds all the online features and just as with other consoles, eventually you will need to update to play the latest titles....every console on the market is like this.

Hi, great review. Actually Santa is bringing the Wii U to my 4 year old. I'll do that, makes a lot of sense.

Thanks for pointing out what could have been a major hassle. No need to have a repeat of "are we there yet?" for several hours of what should be a nice day off with family.

Twain, I didn't read amyone say "we all have 'Santa' in our children's lives." Shaming someone for something they didn't say is a curious thing to do.
As a secularist, you sound just like Netanyahu and Franklin Graham to me. I don't think it's my business what people believe in private just so long as they follow the rules of fairness when in public. Are you really a Muslim, or just someone pretending to be one just to spread faith-based hate?

I tell my son that the story of Santa is a wonderful story because it inspires us to be kind to each other. I never told him it was the case that Santa did the things ascribed to him. I believe in inspiring each other with stories. Manipulating each other with deceit is something different. Dogmatic people don't get the difference.
I don't know what the appropriate limits are that we should place upon kids in all specific instances but I use outlines that I attempt to stay within. Amazon has a book, "Everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten: Don't hit people and clean ip your own mess." I don't use stories of Santa or God to encourage that, but the Golden Rule is taught in my home.
