The Official Nintendo Wii Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I finally got the chance to play the Wii when I visited some of my friends at my old college. My friend was quite distressed that I hadn't played it until that moment. I'll admit that before playing it, I was quite skeptical by the gameplay idea but I hadn't heard but good things about it since its release, so I was eager to give it a try.

 

I thought it was pretty much amazing. I started off by trying WiiSports, and I thought it was brilliant. I enjoyed bowling the most, but that is because bowling is one of my favorite sports ever as it is. Boxing was fun and quite a workout.

 

I also gave Zelda a try as well. I'm not a huge Zelda fan but it was quite fun being able to slice and such. It was kinda difficult as well but my friend had finished the game so I was thrust into the middle of the game.

 

Lastly, I tried Rampage and I didn't understand the controls what so ever, neither did my friend who owned the game. I didn't really enjoy it as well. It seems as if the implimentation of the Wiimote wasn't too successful but then again, we didn't really understand the controls.

 

Overall, if I had $250 to spend, I'd definitely consider picking one up. For now though, I'll just enjoy my DS. I'll look into buying one once the price goes down in a few years maybe. Ha.

So, who else is picking up Super Paper Mario this week?

 

I'll be getting it as soon as I complete Paper Mario 2. I'm just now getting into the Paper Mario world with this GameCube classic, and it's awesome. Now I'm trying to hurry up & finish Paper Mario 2 so I can start playing Super Paper Mario. Can't wait!!!

BTW, final version of the Internet Channel came out today, features include:

 

* Parental Controls

 

* Improved zooming and scrolling

 

* An improved zoomed font

 

* Shortened startup times

 

* Quicker access to "favorites"

 

* An ability to hide the toolbar

 

* Buttons that will instantly type common preset letters, such as "www" or ".com"

 

* Built-in Yahoo! or Google Search

 

Not bad, still not that great to have, no need for it. But I guess when everyone here takes all the computers, at least I have the Wii

We just got the last copy of Super Paper Mario at Game Stop today - best game for the Wii yet! I'm a little dissappointed that it doesn't use the battle system (just hop on the enemy's head), but the whole "flip between dimensions" thing doubles each level's playability. I'm on Chapter 1-3, so I can't wait to see more of what Nintendo has to offer in this one!

I actually bought Paper Mario today, having never played a Paper Mario game...but I have played Mario & Luigi Super Star Saga and part of Mario RPG and found those quite addicting. I like the fact that it kinda goes back to the platforming era of Mario yet you can switch to 3d when you get stuck in the 2d world. Well, that now makes 11 Wii games that I have now.

You guys make me jealous. I still only have Zelda.

Don't worry, I still have Zelda too with a remote and a nunchuk...

 

My birthday is next month so that means I'll probably get Super Paper Mario or Trauma Center, something like that. I never played the Paper Mario series and I am very curious to try this.

Has anyone else found the arcade in Super Paper Mario? Go to the bar in the basement level of Flipside and go into 3D. Just keep heading towards the screen and you'll find a pipe that leads to it. I'm currently addicted to the ghost shooting mini-game. My high score is 1.1 million points and I'm still trying to best it.

Yay for bringing threads back from the dead.

 

I have a little question for 'yall: What are the Top 5 Wii games to you?

 

Top 5? I don't think there are 5 Wii games that really warrant a $50 purchase. So far the only two games to really impress me have been Twilight Princess and Super Paper Mario. I guess you could include Wii Sports but it's really just a fancy (but fun) tech demo.

I've been playing Super Paper Mario for the past few days. Although I really like the game, I think it's a bit too easy. I don't pay too much attention to games, but it seems like Nintendo games are much easier today than in the past. The bosses especially in Super Paper Mario are absurdly easy to beat.

I'm gonna get Super Paper Mario.

 

Dude, you know how the ads for the Wifi USB Adapter said that 'you just plug it in, prepare it, and you're good to go'? Yeah, no. My dad took about an hour to get my computer's firewall to accept my wii as an accepted computer system, then we had to grant permission, and get everything ready. And that didn't count the 10 more minutes for the DS.

I'm going to buy a new game for my wii soon, but I'm debating what to get:

 

Excite Truck: I've heard some pretty bad stuff about it. Is it really that bad?

GT Pro Series: This one is apparently pretty bad as well. Anyone bought it?

Need For Speed Carbon: Was going to buy this, then i read about the controls. Do they suck, or do they work?

Blazing Angels: Looks really good, can anyone confirm that?

Heatseeker: Ditto Blazing Angels.

Tony hawks Downhill Jam I think it looks good, but no-one else seems to. Does it?

SSX Blur Graphics look kind of bad, but otherwise looks good.

 

Can anyone help?

^ Yeah, I agree. That Heatseeker game is gonna be AWESOME!

 

I rented Excite Truck a while ago, it gets boring after you complete the Silver missions. I would only buy it for the multiplayer. As for Tony Hawk Downhill Jam, I played it at a friend's house, it's very good. Much like Excite Truck, but has 4-players, seems longer, and has much more depth.

^ Thanks for the help. I actually just learnt that Blockbuster now has Wii Games for rental. Despite Blockbuster being crap, maybe i should have a look at what they've got, and rent out some of those games.

 

Why can't Video Ezy have Wii games!!!
