I have Gain Ground via the Sega Genesis Collection on PS2. I hadn't played it before and wasn't very good, or, overly impressed. With the way it is talked about around here, I may try to give it a couple more shots.

I won't buy the Wii points over the Wii Channel. I'm using a WEP network and that is not secure enough to plop my CC number on it.

With 4000 (one bought, one free from letsplaywii.com) Wii Points, I have the following:
Super Mario 64
Super Castlevania IV
Zelda: Link to the Past
Bomberman '93
Gunstar Heroes

I, like many others, have no interest in MK64 since I've got the DS game and the gamecube game.

Do you ever buy things over the phone? How about paying for a meal with your credit card?

This is just paranoid.

Even if your wireless network wasn't secure, there will still be encryption used for the communication between your Wii and the Nintendo servers.

Thanks for the great comments!

All I am saying is it isn't hard to buy a Wii points card while I am in a store buying a Wii game or a DVD. It is just one less place where my CC number can be accessed from. Yes I understand that I am using the CC at the store, and at the restaraunt for dinner and on 1-900 numbers, but if it's one less place where my CC will be, then I feel less paranoid (as you put it). If you've ever been a vicitim of identity theft, then you may understand.

Cool.

I'm getting Contra3 for sure. MK64 is good and all, but I prefer the DS version, so I'll skip that.

I don't know much about Bonanza Bros or Comix Zone - could someone tell me about them, and if I'd like them (I like 2D platformers a lot, BTW)?

How many of you all downloaded Mario Kart 64? Is it worth the $10?

I've been wondering if the cheats/shortcuts are still there. I know it is a port, but you never know. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet.

I guess letsplaywii.com gave up on getting any of the Wii points cards, because I just got a $20 gift card from them. Unfortunately, I can't use it for the Virtual Console, because I don't know what address it's registered under.

I'm waiting on one from them as well. What kind of gift card is it?

I downloaded Mario 64 this weekend, my first forray into virtual console. With the current pricing structure, the N64 games seem more or less worth $10...but $5 and $8 for NES/SNES seems a bit steep...especially when I can emulate them so easily.

I also really wish Nintendo would sell the points cheaper through the Wii since I'm sure their margins are better.

I didn't have a problem paying 10 bucks for Mario 64 either, but I'm having problems pulling the trigger on Mario Kart 64.


Maybe if/when I have some friends over that request the purchase, it would be a different story. Maybe I should take up a "collection" or something

I'd probably just get Double Dash. It's at least as good with better graphics.
