So, I bought a Wii.
« on: November 11, 2007, 08:38:01 AM »
There are probably other Wii topics, but fuck 'em. Fuck your search button.

Anyway, I like it. The weird remote Chuck Norris thingie is sick. I snagged Wario Ware and it ranks highly on the Makes-You-Look-Like-An-Idiot-O-Meter. But it's fun as fucking hell and hilarious too. I got Mario Galaxy happening on Tuesday, so I'm psyched.

Winter is here, so I guess it's video game time.

The Wii has been around for a lot longer than 3 months, and every store I went to were selling the shit out of them. I saw like 4 people buy one in like five minutes. The system is not going anywhere.

I wanna get into Metroid Prime 3.

I love my wii.  Sending it off to get modded by a reputable chip installer (D2C chipset requires 30 wires).  I still play my Nintendo DS lite more than anything.

Metroid Prime, Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Paper Mario, Zack and Wiki.

All must have games for anyone who owns (or knows someone who owns) a Wii.

It's too bad Rare are exclusive to Microsoft, otherwise I'd be hyped for another Donkey Kong 64 like game.

On the plus side, a new Banjo KAzooie game is set for release on the 360 next year.

Play backups of Wii and gamecube games.  That's pretty much it.  The homebrew game scene is coming along slowly.

Let me know how it goes. I'm planning on modding the Wii too. I have a lot of places to get it done, but I'd rather hear more first person accounts of their experience.

Modding my xbox 1 was the best thing I could have ever done.

DK64???  You really like collecting that much shit?  Anyways, Wii's alright, I copped a few at launch ebay'd em and kept one.  Twilight Princess was just Ocarina of Time 1.5, I'm kinda over the same formula, though I did make it all the way through.  I like the way FPS's control on it over dual analog, but Wii's online's a joke so nothing's ever gonna take COD4's place at the moment.  I'm picking up Mario today, but after that I might sell it in the holiday rush, and put it towards Rock Band.  I don't know if it's worth keeping after that for Mario Kart and Smash Bros.  If anyone sees one in a store about now and have any idea how to use ebay it'd be a pretty good idea to pick it up, you can make about 75 now easy, and it's probably only gonna go up.

As much as I hope they nail 1:1 lightsaber controls for this game, they most likely won't.  Wiimote controls thus far have been overwhelmingly disappointing.  Not only that, but this games gonna look like complete ass compared to the PS3/360 versions.  Besides any Wii's sold this holiday season are gonna bring in a pretty penny.  I'm already on my second personal one, and have sold 4 overall.  I sold my used one last year after I ran out of games I wanted for more than retail.  I can always pick one up again.

What games are fun the the DS?
Mario Kart DS
New Super Mario Bros
Princess Peach
Super Mario 64 DS
Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan/Moeru Nekketsu Rhythm/Elite Beat Agents
Hotel Dusk
Lego Star Wars
Brain Training
New York Times Crossword
Tons of RPG games if that's your flavor (Front Mission, Children of Mana, Lunar Knights, etc.)

And. . .every release date is like Christmas if you own one of these and know how to use it:

I actually own 3 of them so I can have cartridges split up into categories like all rpg, all nintendo first-party titles, children's games (for when my 3 year old wants to play there's a Crayola coloring game that she totally fucking loves).

Quit derailing my thread with your hunger for cock, we're trying to talk about Mario.

p.s. It tastes like bottle caps and dried dog stools.
