So what's everyone playing on the Wii right now?

I'm mostly VCing it.

I was playing Zelda but I just beat it. Will probably collect the rest of the Poes and the cave of ordeals and then get to work on some DS games. Probably not much for me until some of the other launch games get cheaper. When they hit the $20 or $30 mark I'll probably pick up Excite Truck, Elebits, and Trauma Center.

That's actually why I've been VCing. LTTP is great for both long (dungeons) and short (heart pieces, etc) sessions. And the home button (save anywhere), makes it a lot easier.

chrisih8u 03-03-07 03:41 PM

Im playing SSX, Wii Play, and Zelda: OOT. And I'll pick up TMNT when it comes out.

Josh H 03-03-07 03:41 PM

I'm playing RE4 (GC) to knock the dust off.

Can't wait for Super Paper Mario next month.

DarthMarino 03-03-07 03:46 PM

Blur has been dominating my free time. On the virtual console front I've been playing New Adventure Island.

Michael Corvin 03-03-07 04:02 PM

Sonic & the Secret Rings, which is pretty fun. It is a lot like an old school platformer which is where a lot of criticisms come from. Twitch jumping, lots of memorization of the board and redoing levels because you didn't know that giant chasm was there because of the camera. All valid complaints, but it makes it feel old school to me. Killing enemies with the Wiimote is strangely satisfying. It isn't super difficult, but can offer a challenge if you try and complete everything. It's a great looking game to boot and the control style works well. It's my first Sonic game and I like it.

Kid Icarus - I've spent a good 6-7 hours on this one. Classic. I'm close to the end right now, level 4-1 and have loved every minute of it.

Zelda - I play a couple hours every other week. I'm just not feeling this one yet. I'm between dungeon 2 and 3.

Mmm, soon as I beat this last level in Rogue Squadron II, I'm going to be playing Paper Mario (GC) for the first time in anticipaton of the Wii sequel.

Full BC on the Wii for GC was one of Nintendo's best moves. I'm loving the GC since I've bought Rouge Squadron II, Paper Mario, RE4, SSBM, Zelda:WW, and have Viewtiful Joe coming, all of which I missed out on last generation.

Quack 03-03-07 04:19 PM

I've been doing a lot of the Everybody Votes channel, strangley enough....I think I'm 7-3 for predictions so far...so that's pretty cool...That and Mario Kart 64 and Ocarina which I just downloaded recently.

I just wanted to say that I got a Wii for my birthday 2 weeks ago and it's bad ass. I can't wait to get Zelda and Trauma Center.

Also, can I buy Wii points online from Nintendo? I searched their site and couldn't find anywhere to purchase them.

Only through the Wii I believe.

tonyc3742 03-03-07 08:26 PM

Yeah, just log in to the Wii shop channel and you can buy them there. Plus, you can buy as little as 10.00 worth.
I'm hopping between Excitetruck and Zelda--I'm only a couple hours into it, but I heard the first few hours are kind of slow.
Rented Wario Ware: Smooth Moves. Cute yet stupid (in a good way). I can*not* beat that darn dancing level. There's just no signal (that I've found). It's a little annoying it's not multiplayer right off the bat.
I'm actually browsing the used GC aisle at EB/GS and trying to decide to take the plunge, since I never had a GC.

We're playing Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy for Gamecube...a pretty good little Zelda clone.

Edit: It's actually remarkable...this is the first game I've seen my fiance get into since Animal Crossing. She's playing and I'm watching...and it's usually the other way around. :up:

Plus the game is fun and funny. I'd recommend it to anybody who likes the Zelda formula...talking to you Hinkle. ;) I'd put it on par...maybe just a smidge below...Beyond Good and Evil. It takes a few hours to open up though...so be patient.

VC'ing it with SMW and DKC

I bought that cheap about two years ago and it sat and sat until I traded it in for my Wii. I never even popped it in once. :lol: Maybe I'll snag it cheap again if I'm desperate for anything to play.

Research firm names Wii the next gen winner through 2008.

davidh777 03-05-07 01:15 AM

I haven't played Zelda in a few weeks. Got a little frustrated trying to use the Goron guys as trampolines but I'll try again sometime.

Found Wii Play at Target so I'll try that this week.

Mr. Cinema 03-05-07 06:15 AM

Been playing some Zelda, but lately it's been VC games.

You won't be sorry. I don't think I paid more than $10-12 for it. I'd always been put off by the name, but finally heard enough good things about it to give it a shot.

It's essentially a Zelda-like adventure with a bit more platformer emphasis. The first hour or so is painful (simple areas to learn the controls), but it gets really good as it goes.

The mummy is awesome.

steebo777 03-05-07 08:01 AM

Been playing a lot of Zelda: ALTTP, a little WiiPlay, some Bonk's and a lot of WiiSports still.
