I really REALLY want to get the new Metroid game for Wii...... It just looks badass. DR, i know the feeling on NEVER seeing a Wii though. Before my mamma handed hers over to me, i was looking all the time. Even after I got it, I still look when I head through wally world. Never see one though, never have.... You'd think with the inability to keep Wii'* on the shelf here, that they'd jack up production. Guess it is a marketing ploy and I need to be buying every console I can off ebay until christmas.

No one ever lets their Mii'* travel. My Mii parade is always empty :(

I've played many-a-wii, and it really is not anything to write home about. The graphics suck, and the controller is annoying to say the least. It'* really just another kiddy console from Nintendo.

Really, the last great console Nintendo made was the N64, and even that wasn't as good as the SNES

Graphics don't make the game. Game play makes the game. Too much value is put on graphics making most of the new games less than appealing. Like I said, I want the new Metroid game, but I fear it may be short because, as I stated, more is put into graphics these days than the actual game..... I look forward to being able to aim the gun the way a FPS should let you though.

One of my favorite games is Grand theft auto, and the graphics suck... But it'* nice to have a system that has the capabilities. I still say the wii is a gimmick, and the controller sucks.

I have only played 2 games so far on the Wii. Wii sports and Super Paper Mario.
Wii Sports is okay, I love the golf game and the missus loves bowling. I got it because the wife let me ( she really wanted one) and she is no gamer. It is great for fun multi player games and I can let the kids play too. Super Paper Mario was to cool, got to buy that one.
Waiting for the new Carnival game to be delivered any day now.
I definitely think a 1st person shooter would be great on this system. Found some cool gadgets on ebay that look like guns and you slip your controller into it and allows the Nunchuck to hook up. Looked pretty cool.

Picked up the new Metroid game for the Wii this weekend. Very much like the ones for GC, but the new controllers add a level to the game like nothing ever could. It'* a lot like Twilight Princess, if you've played it. Still the same type of game with improvements since it'* new release but the controllers just add that extra bit of realism and makes you feel more a part of the game. I'm impressed with the system. They really did a good job.
