How much?

$40 for the Wiimote, and $20 for the Nunchuck controller.

Which, well, isn't too bad. The PS3 Sixaxis controllers are $60 too.

No, not yet.

People are criticizing me for getting those. My friends are. But ya know, I figure I'd get it out of the way, so I'd have less things to get once I go and get the console. At the moment, I still have the Wii, Zelda, and Red Steel on my list. Maybe the Virtual Console Controller, and points for the Virtual Console.

So, I went to Best Buy today, and there weren't any left. So I'm kind of glad that I got them. Possibly on launch day, there will be a lot put out again, but I just wanted to be on the safe side.

My friends critised me for buying anything Nintendo, but in the end they all rushed over to my place to play my Nintendo systems... so who cares.

Anywayz, so, how does it feel? XD

How long is the cord connecting the two parts?

Is it comfortable to move around?

I haven't heard of anyone having any actual problems with the cord between the Nunchaku and Wiimote. Everyone was worried but never thought about it when they were actually playing and then realised that it wasn't a problem when they thought about it.

Yes it does. But you can buy more, but they come separately.

Should have bought Wii play instead of just wiimote!

Guess you'll want several remotes anyways :)

No, you don't. But you can plug your wavebird receivers in the GCN slots for cube games. ;)

@ Bob: Pretty much all VC games will allow you to use your GCN controller, yes. When you go to download the games themselves you'll see controller icons showing you which controllers are compatible with that game.

"How long is the cord connecting the two parts?

(Didn't feel like using the quote button. =p)

Anyways, the cord connecting the two is a good length. The only time that it will become a problem is if you have some un-humanly wide skeletal structure, to where your arms lengths are God-knows-where apart. But its a good length, but not too long to get annoying.

And yes, it's comfortable to move around. It's comfortable holding the Wii-mote, and the nunchuck.

After playing the Wii, and Wii Sports, (Didnt have time to play Zelda yet), I have come to this conclusion:

The Wii is a fun system to play.

I'll just say it plain and simple: It's different. It's unlike anything you've done before with video games. Sometimes I think, "Why didn't anyone think of this before?"

And also, I don't know why people are complaining about graphics. Theyre fine to me. And I even have a High-Def TV... They're just games. Nintendo has been saying all along that the graphics wouldn't be as great. Then, why are people complaining?

Ask me anything about it, since I have one now.

Its a light trick, much less complex.

Oh, and the graphics still look quite nice to me...

Wii Sports is quite fun. And the cartoony and simple graphics are fine. It's a nice, cheap game that comes with the system (for most of us).

I don't like boxing much. I can't quite get the hang of it.

I personally love Tennis. It's my favorite out of all the Wii Sports. Bowling is fun too. I'm sure its even more fun with more than 2 people.

And my dad sort of likes it. He lost to all the Wii sports games (We didnt play golf though), except for boxing. He kicked my BUTT. Haha.

I’ve played Golf and Tennis the most. I actually worked into a sweat. :p But, my friend kicked my ass in Baseball and Bowling. :xp: But, I did kick his ass in Tennis. And we equalled out in Golf.

But, I wasn’t able to play Boxing with him since I only have a second Wiimote, since all the Nunchuks were sold out. :(

Don't play anyone in Boxing. I punched my brother in real life because all he did was machine gun with the Wiimote and Nunchuck...and there wasn't **** I could do about it.

Anyone else notice that in Bowling, the ball tends to roll to the left a lot? It's different for the normal mode and the minigame modes too. In the normal mode, the ball always rolls to the left, and no matter what you do it'll still roll to the left. However, in the minigames, it'll roll to the left, but you can put spin on it to make it roll more to the right.

All I know is that it's annoying. X|

Otherwise it's pretty fun.

Oh, and I got my mom to play tennis. :D

I'm guessing your swing must not be perfectly straight, otherwise it wouldn't go to the right. Or perhaps your sensor bar isn't perfectly lined up with your TV. :giveup:

BongoBob
11-21-2006, 04:38 PM
Yeah, I noticed it did that to me too IG. It might not have been aligned correctly, I didn't check. But I'm gonna try again tonight.

The thing is, it wasn't doing it for my little brother. And we were playing two player, I'd go, then him.

Although if it's being a dick to you like it was to me, go all the way to the right and roll it. I missed so many from it being an ass, but then I did that and ended up finishing one under him from getting a turkey.

The alignment of the sensorbar has nothing to do with it. Firstly, there have been people who have put their sensor bar beside the TV and gotten the exact same results as people who aligned it to the center of their TV. Just as long as the Wiimote can see the sensorbar, it's all good.Secondly, Wii Sports DOES NOT use the sensorbar in the first place.

Thanks for the clarifications... Although I meant to imply that the sensor bar might not be installed in a perfectly horizontal position, and not if it was centered with the screen. I'm assuming that since the remote uses the sensor bar to tell it's position in the 3D environment (or the other way around), if it were to be misplaced, it would influence the movements, kinda like when you don't hold you mouse perfectly straight.

But since Wii Sports doesn't use the sensor bar, this obviously cannot be the problem. The user's poor dexterity is obviously to blame in this case :p

I've also noticed in Bowling, when I toss it, it swings to the left, for me. My buddies shots were perfect.

In bowling, my dad gets his bowling ball rolling to the left too. When I did it, it was perfect. When I tried his controller, and he tried mine, I did it perfectly, and he did bad on mine. I think it's just the user, not the controller, game, or sensor bar to blame.

(Off topic...anyone know where I can get a Nintendo Wi-fi USB thing for under $30? I want wireless internet play on the Wii and DS, but I dont want to buy a wireless router)

Bowling ball going to the left for most people?

BongoBob
11-22-2006, 12:10 AM
Acrylic, I know the targets around me have them for 40 bucks. You could probably find it online for cheaper, but I dunno.

The thing is, before I played my little brother and it started going to the left, it was the first game on Wii Sports, I tried, and it didn't do it then.

IG-64
11-22-2006, 10:20 AM
Ok, obviously, everyone seems to think it's my fault. :p

Let me restate this.

In normal non-mini-game bowling, the ball always rolls to the left. It doesn't matter how I throw it, what hand I throw it in, what kind of spin I put on it, how I twist the remote, nothing. Nothing I do will make it roll straight or to the right at all. However, in the training mini-game bowling, it's quite easy to put spin on it and tell it just where to go. There is an obvious discrepancy between the normal and mini-game bowling.

[EDIT] I just played a two-player game with me as both players. As player one, I still couldn't make the ball spin to the right, but as player two, I could spin it to the right a few times, though not all the time. Sounds like a bug to me. Lemme go try a four-player game and see what happens.

Lynk Former
11-22-2006, 04:47 PM
It's not a bug, we've already gotten reports on the net where the same person gets the same results no matter which controller they use... but talking about this reminds me back to the first time I went bowling... I sucked and it's because the ball kept spinning towards the left and I never could figure out why XD

EDIT: XD I don't know my left from my right apparantly.

Thanks,
but I broke down and bought a Wi-fi USB adapter about a week ago...I couldn't take it anymore. I've yet to try Mario Kart DS, or Animal Crossing (because I don't have any friends with DS's really :( ) but Wii Shop Channel works well. I've already downloaded Sonic and Ristar.
