A mere few days after the official Wii U announcement, GameStop ceased taking preorders for the 32GB Wii U bundle. As of yesterday, they officially stopped taking preorders on either model -- so don't count on GameStop if you want to jam with Mario this holiday season.

While you may be out of luck if you have a lot of GameStop credit saved up, there is still hope. You can get on the waiting list at your local store for free, provided that you're a PowerUp Rewards member (which does cost money -- there's always a catch!).

In other news, Toys 'R Us is taking preorders on a specific bundle for the basic Wii U model. It kind of sucks, but it's something, right?

Original Alien cast returns for Alien: Isolation bonus content, available for those who pre-order

Alien: Isolation is supposed to be more like the 1979 horror film Alien, and less like the action shooter that some other Aliens game tried to be. Thus far, it looks like it has stuck to that design philosophy well enough, an...more
