I haven't played my Wii since I got my Xbox 360 about 5 weeks ago. Probably only played it on average about once every 2 weeks before that. The last game I can recall actually being entertaining was Metroid: Another M, and I played through it the week it came out. Usually the Wii is used only by my kids, or by me if I want to play an old Neo-Geo fighter on the emulator, or watch a DivX movie that I'm too lazy to burn to disc for my DVD player.

In all honestly I'm sickened by the Wii every time I see it being played by the kids now, it just looks like total crap compared to the Xbox, and it is really hard to imagine that they are from the same generation, and even more outrageous is the fact that the Xbox is older than the Wii. I had never played an Xbox 360 or PS3 until 5 weeks ago, so I had no idea how huge the difference was. The Wii is more or less just a Gamecube with gimmicky controllers  :-[

I would like some kind of JRPG for it, if there is any (besides ToS2, which I have played somewhat recently) hit me up. =o


If you want JRPG for the Wii, I highly suggest crying or commenting suicide as the Wii got many strong JRPG such as The last story, Xenoblade, Pandora something and Tales of Grace but ALL are Jap only at the time being. And no, learning Japanese and importing is no longer an option thanks to the nuclear crisis.  :'(

What? Hasn't got any harder to import games. The only games harder to import because of the tsunami/earthquake are the Zettai Zetsumi  Toshi series because they were all pulled off the shelves/cancelled

I still like the wii. Graphically, it's not the best, far from it, really, but it still has some nice titles. Not so many coming out right now, but there are plenty of games that I've missed I want to go back and try.

I played Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 on my Wii via Genesis emulator a few days ago. I think that has been it other than my 5 year old playing Kirby's Epic Yarn.

It is such a horrible port, you are missing nothing. I can't wait till they bring out the original trilogy on XBLA this summer, arcade perfect ports are what I crave!

Today I started playing Excite Truck, and I had been playing for like 20 mins before I realized that I did not have my bar up on the TV and hooked up.  :o :lol

I didn't know that everything would work without that? Strange...  ::D

I started working on Twilight Princess again. I am almost done with it! I will probably not finish it before Skyward Sword comes out, though.

 I love throwing cows!!!

 I still am plying mine regularly. Mot consistently, but when something cool comes out. I am playing Kirby Return to Dreamland currently and when I finish that I will prolly replay Kirby' epic yarn. The other systems def do have better graphics, but I like the wii just fine. I don't need the best graphics. I need fun gameplay :)

I wish I played mine more.  I really do.  But it just sits there.  I have like 7 or 8 games for it, and hundreds of VC games bought, but I really have no drive to play it at all.  Actually, I played about an hour of Fallout New Vegas last night, even though I have yet to find a Fallout game that I like.  I'd rather play my brother's games on the 360 than play mine on the Wii. :-\

Yeah, this is me. I still have Skyward Sword but I just can't motivate myself to play it. :(

i've put mine up for now, but i'll bring it back out when xenoblade gets released. i've put about 3,000 hours into Monster Hunter tri. MH is one of my favorite series, and its a very addictive game. but, i noticed i was playing MHT instead of doing other things, so i just decided to disconnect my wii altogether and put it up. i'm very weak willed sometimes when it comes to games. plus, there are other games i wanted to catch up with.

and indeed i bought quite a few VC games too, but with most of them, i play it once or a few times and haven't touched them since. it's because i'd rather play them on their original platform.
