  1. Probably still won't buy a Wii. $99 is the price point I'll buy it at. I don't mind pay that to get a console I don't like that doesn't have any games I like. I just want it for the classics.

    1. I really enjoy PunchOut! for the Wii. Both the old school one and new version. That plus the 2 SMG games is worth $150 if you ask me. I could potentially include Epic Mickey if I ever play it.

      If anyone has a copy of Epic MIckey they want to discard….I will take it off of your hands.

      1. I liked the new Punch Out also. I tend to forget about the games I like until someone mentions them since I don't have them on a shelf to look at.

        I have decided I am going to just buy an original NES and games for it. I can get everything I want for ~$100.

      2. Man that is awesome. I bought my girlfriend an Original (rebuilt) NES off of eBay as an anniversary/birthday gift about 5 years ago. It was so cool to get that damn thing. I paid a bit extra because I bought it from some guy who had the original packaging to go with it.

        Too bad 2 years later she got me a puppy and Layla chewed that box up.

        Get Cabal for your NES. That and Gunsmoke.

      3. I LOVE GUNSMOKE!!!

        I was looking at http://www.lukiegames.com/nintendo-nes-systems.ht

        They have some great games for CHEAP. I just stumbled across their site today.

        Games I want:

        Mario -all of them




        Marble Madness

        RC Pro AM


        Bayou Billy


        Kung Fu

        Super Off Road

        T&C Surf Designs

        Skate or Die

        California Games

        8 Eyes


        & a Game Genie

        There are tons more I want but the list woulg get a bit excessive

      4. The guy I bought my NES from included 2 games in addition to Mario/Duckhunt combo cartridge. I sent him a message before I bought it asking if he could include Dr. Mario and Cabal instead of 2 random carts. He said sure. So if you are buying off of eBay, send them a message first to see if you can get 2 games you want instead of random grabs by them. Typically it is one awesome title and something obscure. Doesn't hurt to try though.

  2. The coolest Wii game I played was Scarface. Now, I know it was multiplat… but with the Wii version, in order taunt/yell obscenities in true Tony Montana fashion, you would just shake the nunchuk as opposed to pushing a button like the feature was used on every other console. AND… the sensitivity for this particular feature was pretty high.

    So basically, every time the left side of my body twitched or moved in any way, Tony Montana would spurt out one of the 200 and something programmed phrases. This added to the immersion of being Tony Montana.

    1. " The only thing in this world that gives orders… is balls."

      -M (ontana), Tony

      1. My kids appropriated that one quickly after I brought it home. So, the answer is no.

  3. I already got my Wii, and the only game on that list that is of interest to me is the Zelda game. However, I already played that game before on my friend's Wii when it first came out. The price cut would have been nice when I was buying this before, but oh well. What's done is done.

    1. Agreed. Even though I have a Wii, I don't have the Wii version of Twilight Princess. I played it on the Gamecube and loved it, so the Wii version must be that much more immersive… right?

      1. I preferred the GCN version due to controls. The immersion wasn't there with waggling.

      2. I've heard that the Wii version was actually less precise and harder to control. It doesn't help that you have to recalibrate so often. Especially with games like Sports Resort's table tennis and swordfighting.
