    The Wii is amazing! Played it all day long yesterday, had lots of fun with Wii Sports, and ExciteTruck, and it's kinda cool cuz Red Steel multiplayer reminds me of Goldeneye multiplayer for some odd reason. I dunno, but all the games are fun. I finally started playing Zelda and it's good too, only about 2 hours into it tho. /me runs back to his Wii to play Twilight Princess

    Would you guys recommend Red Steel? If not, what should I get other than Zelda? (When I eventually find a store with a Wii or Thrii).

    Wii's alot of fun, but I can see it getting old pretty fast. Theres only so much movement that I want to be doing while gaming....pretty much why i hate ddr. I thought gaming was intended for lazy people like me. Oh well wii is fun either way.

    You know, I think the Wii may just be the answer to the West's rising levels of child obesity lol

    Bwahaha! I swung too hard at a baseball yesterday and hurt my back. I feel somewhat retarded for that. But, I spent a lot of time playing Wii Sports. What a great game.

    Also, if you want something that utilizes the motion senesitivity and other aspects of the Wii remote, check out Rayman: Raving Rabbids. It's a bunch of mini-games that really use the remote's capabilities. I can imagine if you get a group of 4 people together to play some of the games, you'd have a ball.

    My opinion on the Wii: Fantastic.

    A little warning as well, the $9.99 wiimote gel/rubber (blue, pink, black) thing that covers the wiimote for protection is great - BUT - the strap that it comes with snaps way too easy. I just broke it playing red steel.
    shwaip Would you guys recommend Red Steel? If not, what should I get other than Zelda? (When I eventually find a store with a Wii or Thrii).

    Red Steel is alright. It wasn't as great as a thought. The whole FPS on wiimote is kinda hard. Controls are really hard to get used to.

    I personally would recommend Trauma Center: Second Opinion. A great game, although frustrating at times.

    So does anyone understand the messaging system with the wii? apparently you can send your friends messeges and exchange miis once you have their wii code. its in the format xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx but i cant seem to figure it out.

    we should make a list so we can all connect and stuff.

    Well me and MountainDew spent a good 10 minutes trying to figure this crap out - it is way less intuitive than Xbox Live. We got each other on the phone and typed in our respective Wii numbers, and then .... nothing.

    We kinda gave up and said "well, check back later and we'll see what happens".

    About 20 minutes later, my Wii (powered down), starting pulsating with a bright blue light. I turned it on and discovered that I finally had a message from Mountain Dew. I guess either the system is bogged down because it's new, or it just plain sucks and needs to be fixed by Nintendo.

    On a side note: The Miis are totally unnecessary for all gameplay. You can attach them to messages, but they act merely as avatars, they do not tie you to an account of any sort.

    Yeah i got the same thing, Prime. I really hope it's not always gonna be like that. Only one of my buddies that stood in line with me (not overnight) got his Wii online, the other is a bit late to join the Wireless club AND he's still running 56k. I don't know if he could get online if he wanted to.

    I have big hopes for the friends and messaging system. Hopefully they'll suck less in the future. :(

    I think I'll post my Wii code and test it out some more :)

    I'm Visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. Brought the Wii with me. We probably spent a good 6 hours total today playing Wii Sports. What a fantastic console.

    My mom was pretty much done after a lot of bowling. So, we started a tennis match. She didn't want to stop. Haha. We played for a while after that. If this were a normal button-pressing sort of game, they would have been done with it before we started.

    Nintendo has surely accomplished what they were aiming for with this console. My dad is thinking about buying one, and my sister went out looking for one today. She couldn't find one, but everyone is excited about this thing.

    Got Zelda and a second Wiimote today. Played Wii golf with my dad and brother-in-law, and then a few games of bowling with my mom and sister. Everyone loves it. Can't say that about any other gaming systems I've got.

    Guitar Hero 2 comes close (mom tried it) but the Wii wins hands down when it comes to getting everyone involved.

    So who's still having trouble finding a Nunchuk attachment?! I've been all over and cannot find one.

    I can't find one either, I grabbed the last two wiimotes at a target, but the nunchuck is MIA.

    I got all that I needed on launch day, but that's prolly cause I was there early. :p
  • CycloniteCyclonite Tampa, Florida
    edited November 2006
    Oh, I could have gotten everything launch day as well. I just figured I'd be able to walk into the store a few days later and pick up a nunchuk no problem. Obviously that's not the case. I've found plenty of remotes, but no nunchuks.

    Wii day in Europe! Any of you guys getting one? :D

    Had one on pre-order since 12th October. Unfortunately that was about a week too late to get one on release day. I'll have it by Christmas and I was going to save it until then anyway.

    Having that party game that comes with the extra controller (it's only $5 than the Wiimote alone), Zelda, Red Steel, the Wario Party game, and hopefully some surprises off my family & girlfriend.

    Can't wait!!
