How To Clean A Wii U Disk

Posted on December 30, 2016 at 10:41 pm

Nintendo Wii U games come on optical disks, Wii U’s own unique game medium to be exact. But like any disk they can easily pick up dirt and light scratches, hampering their ability to load games.

Fortunately the disks can be cleaned relatively easily with a few house hold items. Here are the simple steps to clean a Wii U disk, from Nintendo.

  1. Dampen a clean, soft, cotton cloth with water.
  2. Use straight strokes and wipe the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  3. Using a dry part of the cloth, repeat step 2 to dry the disc.
  4. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii U console.
  5. Do not use solvents such as: benzine, window cleaner, paint thinner, anti-static aerosol spray or abrasive cleaners to clean your disc.
  6. Do not use machines designed to clean discs or remove scratches. These types of devices have been known to damage the surface of the disc.
  7. After cleaning, be sure to store your games properly. Storing games in cases other than the ones they came in, or storing them outside their cases, may damage the disc.

Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans for the new “The Legend of Zelda” game coming later this year after the E3 announcement. But while your waiting for the game to be released you can get your hands on Monster Hunter Generations game released early last year if not already.

When you take a look at the trailers it has a lot of similarities to the Zelda games, even with the sound effects and the fighting styles, but with a whole new storyline thrown into the mix with even bigger monsters

You basically take on the role of a fledgling monster hunter who embarks on a primary quest to become an ultimate hunter. As your journey through the game you will encounter 4 villages that you have to defend from the various monsters that attack; these monsters will be larger than life and you will have to learn new skills and tactics, such as hunting styles and hunter arts that allow you to fully customise your game style to take them down.

Hone in on and master your arts in your solo quest or battle it out with teammates; it’s advised that you form a party with up to three other friends locally or online to take on the toughest challenges together though. There are many challenges in the game, all with different degrees of difficulty. You can get new quests from the store, so there is always something new to keep you motivated and challenged..
