Oh, those numbers.

I haven't hooked up my Wii to the online yet, but as soon as I get around to that (next week, maybe?), I'll make sure to post it.

Mine actually kinda bricked...I can't do any online stuff until I give it back to Nintendo.  Which I ain't doing until I get an SD card to put my zelda save on.

Of all the next-gen consoles, I want Wii the most. However, I do not yet feel that "MUST HAVE IT" tug at my wallet. Yeah, I know, Zelda. But still...if I wait long enough, there will be more games I want, and Zelda will be a whatever-they're-going-to-call-the-reduced-price-game-line-for-Wii.

Is it overly girly to say that my Wii is absolutely adorable?

It's just so cute! And so much fun!

I went to Lakeside (a shopping centre in england, about thirty minutes from london) on Saturday gone (25th) and I got to play the Wii! T'was awesome, to be sure. I just hate being English because we get everything last. Even the Aussies get it the day before us!

Now, you're just making me want a Wii more. Stop it!! I can't resist the idea that Nintendo would make the 'classic' controller for the Wii in the same shape and dimensions as the SNES controller, only with more buttons and gizmos on it. IMO the SNES controller is still the ideal controller, though the PS2 controller comes close.

You know you don't have to use the sensor bar, right?  Any infrared signal can work, which means you could just use two candles of the same height.  Plenty of youtube videos about it.

Ooh, the Wii. =D I have been waiting for this console forevah. But now I'm broke. ._.

I played it some at my friends house, he got one. I'm probably not going to buy it for a few months, but I'm absolutely getting Zelda: TP for the Gamecube when it comes out on the eleventh.

Also, for those who have gotten a Wii, which games did you buy? And out of those, which ones were the best? For future reference purposes. =D

Oh man, I've been playing with my friend's Wii (DAMMIT) and it's pretty awesome.  He only has Wii sports right now, but it's a lot of fun to play with other people.  Bowling and boxing are the most fun, I think.  I made a gigantic, lanky skull-faced monster character, and we tear dudes up in the ring.

Golf is really hard; doing a small swing can be really frustrating since it won't always notice when you do it.

Overall, though, it's really fun and very promising; the control scheme doesn't feel gimicky at all.  Are you excited I'm excited.

Boxing is by far my favorite of the Wii Sports.

I have Zelda and Trauma Center right now, I may pick up Rayman, Monkey Ball, or Madden at a later date.

I am really looking forward to Metal Slug Anthology, though. If it works correctly, that could be an AWESOME multiplayer game.

I have long been a PC loyalist. Don't give me your pussy, dumbed-downed, "streamlined" (read: simplified and dumbed down for the keyboard-impaired) gameplay with fuzzy textures and awkward button re-using schemes. No, real gamers do it with a mouse and QWERTY. If you're not willing to work for months so that you can drop at least 1,500 on a machine with which to run programs that come on $50 slices of silicon, you're not a real gamer. You're just a person who plays games. To say playing consoles makes you a gamer is as to say buying to seat-liners makes you a customizing hot rodder. Playstations are for posers and X-Boxes don't lend themselves to catchy wordplay, but they suck too.

Any real gamer knows this better than they know the alphabet. It's a law of nature.

But man...that Wii...shit...I'm ashamed to admit it, but I want one. I really, really wants me one. When I saw that little nunchuk thing, I laughed. Nintendo was sticking their dick in the grinder and just cranking the handle as fast as they could. Who the hell wants to play a game with a fucking TV remote? I pressed it from my mind, content in my inherently superior pedigree. The PC had never failed me, and it never would. And honestly, it never has.

But the buzz about the Wii...I've never heard anything like it. Never. I've been paying attention to games for a decade now, and nothing has even come near the buzz the Wii is getting. EVERYBODY likes it. I've seen videos of people playing, and that shit looks fun.

But I can't want to buy a console. I just can't. I turned my back on those dark lands years ago. I've never bought a single console item that wasn't a gift for an unenlightened friend since I got rid of my SEGA Genesis. I am the hardest of the hardcore PC loyalists. If it doesn't come with a mouse, I ain't interested.

But that Wii! Oh, the Wii! How you vex and confuse me! Am I doomed to lose my North Star? Has the sky come unfixed, spinning wildly around me in an orgy of pixelated relativism? How can I maintain my confidence in my PC brothers and my disdain for the console scum if this damnable Wii strikes at the very core of what I am?

I think...I think there may only be one way for me to address this. I must confront the Wii, stare it in the eye, and see if the bastard blinks. But how can I do this? If I b- buy one, I will have lost that moral high ground I have spent so many years building: I don't give money to the console pushers!

It appears that I have but one hope. Somebody else must buy me one. If you need to know my shipping address, drop me a line.

Dude, don't be a PC elitist. Not everyone wants to drop over a thousand dollars on a machine that you have to revamp all over again 2 years later. Plus, the game library for consoles is just bigger.

haha, imagine how long it would take a regular person to finish zelda.

Multiply it by 8 because ill more than likely just end up fishing, rather than completing the temples immediately.
Then multiply it by another 20 which is the time i have to wait for my brother to finish playing before I can take control of the wii.

I just played Wii Sports (Bowling) against my 10-year-old cousin. He won 4 out of 5.

But I guess we're even because he said Zelda was boring and difficult.

Still, I hate how you can master the most complex stuff, but get your ass kicked in a one-button game.

Get them both, dude. They are both awesome for completely different reasons.

There isn't a Mario game out yet for the Wii, although it is backwards compatible with the Gamecube so you could work through that back catalog. I'd say get the 360 now because there are more games for it with the year's head start and they are much, much easier to find. But you should get a Wii later.
