Hi! As topic, with the sudden (new) wave of DL games (Metroid Prime Trilogy), all this stuff about lens dirty and not powerful enough comes to the surface again. And the thing is that the deeper we get into the Wii life cycle, the more chances that AAA games will come out as such (Super Mario Galaxy 2? Metroid: Other M?) Anyway, what's your opinion? Do DL disc strains excessively your Wii's lens? Do you try to avoid them as much as possible? Sadly, for example, with MPT is quite tempting to just record a DL and use it (you'd get the built in menu and wouldn't have to fiddle with alt dols), but if you are worried about straining your lens... thats not so nice anymore. In my case, I recorded SSBB on a DL when it came out and I always refrained from playing it. Maybe scared that it would wear my Wii out? Who knows. Thanks for your time and let us know what you think.
