You can't really type. You just kind of point and click on letters/numbers. Kinda cramps up your arm. Oh well.

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

@ Groov: I've gotten really good at typing with the Wiimote actually XD

@ vaderrocksf: Well yes... obviously. I mean a PC has a keyboard XD

@ Datheus + Ray: I have WiFi :p my Wii is connected 24/7 :p

I gave my cousin's Wii a go when he brought it with him to the ski resort. It's pretty nifty. I especially liked Wii Sports, but I still don't know about other games. The Wiimote seems like too much of a gimmick to me. Perhaps when the price drops to $150, I'll pick one up.

That comment had absolutely no effect on Phreak's reputation because it was deflected by the ever so awesome Dr. Cox.

Who said anything about doing anything to Phreak's reputation? All I was saying was that very few people have that opinion now that they've actually had the chance to play it. The only thing people are complaining about now is the overall lack of hardware power.

Lack of hardware power as in what? Graphics? I don't really get that at all. Honestly, for $250, i'm rather impressed at what the machine can do. I also have to give mad props to Nintendo for making this machine so rediculously easy to set up and use right out of the box. And last night I became absolutely lost in just the Virtual Console alone. Nevermind the other Wii games I got for Christmas that I have not opened yet. I finally got a couple of days off, and now I shall spend some quality time on the Wii.

My only gripe so far, is the annoying menu noises, and adding contacts is NOT a fun process at all. They should have made that a little bit easier. Oh well. Pretty minor stuff IMO. Whatever...

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!:D

To tell you the truth, that was less a defense of Phreak's reputation(pfft!) than it was a total celebration of everything good in life, and such is Scrubs.

As to the actual topic, the Wii's last of hardware power really isn't that much of a problem. It's not meant to duel out the other two consoles in graphics competitions; I think Nintendo would much rather focus on the gameplay and for that I applaud them.

I get why people don't like Wii for its lack of hardware power and we all know that on a graphical level, Wii is lacking and yes (@ Tyrion) Nintendo isn't focusing on that side of things with Wii, but that wasn't my point. My point was that if people had a complaint about Wii, that's the one people speak of with the loudest voice.

On a personal level, I think Wii has enough graphical power, it's just upto developers to spend time perfecting their games on a visual level to make them look as nice as Resident Evil 4 and Twilight Princess. And I don't mean that on a purely graphical level either, I'm talking artstyle and animation and all the little things that make a game look so good.

And remember, a lot of graphics juice can still be squeezed out of Wii. Hardware-wise, it's twice as powerful as gamecube (last I heard). If that means anywhere near twice as nice as, say, Resident Evil 4, that's dang good.

Lynk Former
12-31-2006, 06:59 AM
Yeah it is "twice as powerful" as the GCN, but like I said, it depends on how much time a developer wants to put into making their games look as good as RE4 and TP.

Well, don't know what else to call it. Oooh, you shake the controller and the character moves. I'll stick with the standard controller. I just wish they'd port Super Smash Bros Brawl to the GameCube.

Speaking of Resident Evil 4...

I have always wanted to play that game. Always. So now that I have a Wii, all I need is a copy of the the game, a Gamecube Controller, and a Gamecube Memory card. Correct?

Yeah. I think you can play Gamecube games with the Classic controller too, if I'm not mistaken. But I probably am mistaken.

They had lots of season 1 at my Best Buy.

Typing on the Wii is very slow. Just like anything with no keyboard. Auto complete helps, though.

I'm typing this on my Wii right now using my girlfriend's wireless.

A patch adding support for USB keyboards would be a good idea.

why bother? they're $20. a GCN controller is $10 from EB.

No, you're describing Sixaxis, not the Wiimote and certainly not the Wiimote + Nunchaku.

And SSBB supports the GCN controller in the first place, it's been promised by Sakurai because people play Smash Bros competitively.

Yup, you'll need a GCN controller and GCN memory card *nods* Though I was looking at the Wiimote + Nunchaku and the GCN controller today and you know what... even though it's pretty pointless, I wish Capcom would make a remake of RE4 for Wii just so it can use the Wiimote + Nunchaku... all of the buttons fit perfectly and in fact, would give more functionality to the game.

Already tried, the Classic controller doesn't work with GCN games... at least not with the current versions of firmware available to us now.

Rumour has it that 3.5 million Wii's have been sold worldwide so far... waiting for confirmation.

Darth Groovy

Somehow my Wi-Fi adapter got busted. I have not had it that long, and i'm going to try to exchange it tomorrow. :mad:

I'm going to snag a copy of Resident Evil 4, a GC controller, and a mem card while i'm at it if I can. Always wanted to play that game. Some of you might remember when I was contemplating getting a Gamecube. Any other Gamecube games anybody can recomend?

Lynk Former

Mostly shooting and action games, but every once in a while I like puzzle solving, and anything that strays away from the norm.

I guess I would say narrow it down to the must-have games that are only available on Gamecube. Right now I can only think of Resident Evil 4, Geist, and Metroid Prime. And don't say Super Smash Bros Melee, because at this time of year you CANNOT find that in local stores.

Wind Waker
Paper Mario
RE:4
Viewtiful Joe
Timesplitters 2 if you want really fast shooting
F Zero if you're into racing
Animal Crossing if you like the Sims

and of course

Super Smash Bros. Melee (look harder :p)

I still have yet to beat RE:4. I can't play that game for more than 20 minutes at a time; it's so cool and intense. I'm barely halfway through the game and I've had it for like a month, maybe two. :p

Don't forget Resident Evil 0 and the remake of Resident Evil. Rogue Squadron 2 and 3 of that Star Wars fix. Definately Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2 Echoes... get those two before you go out and buy Metroid Prime 3 Corruption when it finally comes out. Killer7 strays away from the norm... though I think a little too far from the norm for you. Definately The Wind Waker, and if you can, find a copy that comes with a copy of the Ocarina of Time bonus disc... I actually have two copies of that disc as well as the Zelda collectors disc lol. Smash Bros Melee if you can, it's best to practice cause once Brawl comes out you won't have to deal with any learning curve that comes with the game, and despite it being a pick up and play game, it still does have a learning curve XD Star Fox Assault if you can get it for cheap, it's a nice arcade shooter. Pikmin and Pikmin 2! Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance!

Mike Windu
01-01-2007, 11:59 AM
It has a huge learning curve if you wanna play competitively :D :D

go learn to play competitively so we can have a huge SSBB brawl network when it comes out!

Ermmm.... NO. It came with my used GameCube and it sucked, the static backgrounds pissed me off to no end. I only got to the mansion and I gave-up because apparently zombies take point-blank shotgun blasts to the face pretty well, then proceed to deplete 80% of my health.

Just a warning - you will have to protect someone for a lot of the game.

At least she doesn't get in the way though. Much..

Lynk Former
01-02-2007, 05:17 AM
Don't worry Groov, by the time you get to that part of the game you'll have already learnt the skills you need to get through the next part... besides, the protecting part was easy XD Conserving ammo, choosing your weapons and upgrades carefully and killing certain creatures are a different matter.

Can't be any worse than escorting the queen in The Phantom Menace game...

Yeah so far it's pretty cool. I can DEFINITELY see where Gears of War drew most of it's inspiration from. I was dumb enough to get my foot caught in the bear trap AFTER I let the dog go. : :fist:
