    Metroid Prime was finally released yesterday, so I went down to buy me a Wii (oooh weee oooh weee)
    I got mario party 8 (and wii sports) free with it which was pretty cool, plus I bought Metroid and Excite Truck.

    Holy shit is Excite Truck fun as hell, I can't remember the last time I played a game that was so much god damn fun, got the hang of the controls immediately, now I'm trying to get all S ranks [​IMG]
    MP3 rocks also.

    So yup, every nub gets to make a topic asking what games to buy etc, I made a topic just to let you guys know, coz, well.. well.. [​IMG]

    Off the top of my head.
    Mario Strikers Charged: Pretty fun multiplayer, and the inclusion of wifi adds so much more replay value.

    Resident Evil 4
    Rayman Raving Rabbits

    That's pretty much the only games that I think are worth the money and are available on Pal now.

    Edit: WarioWare's an excellent rental. Oh and how can i forget Zelda - not a rental of course.

    I donno bout you guys.. But for some reason I don't enjoy the wii much.. I played it like 7 hours yesterday with a friend on his house.. And I didn't really enjoy it .. only like 10 20 minutes on the begining when we played Wario Ware Smooth Moves.. we played many games.. None of them really made me enjoy the wii.. Only SSBM On the gamecube O.o

    With many breaks.. But yeah something around 5-7 hours.. I thought i'd enjoy it if i'll play more..

    Take in mind we also played the DS and the GameCube.. Both for about 2 hours .. So wii was about 3-5 hours..
    Lets add the breaks.. I played the wii for 2 Hours , GameCube and DS For 2 more hours.. and the breaks were about 1-3 hours..

    yippy for Friday the 16th SMG is out in Europe and I'm getting it at that very date.


    What game(s) did you play?

    The Wii has Super Paper Mario and Metroid prime 3. SMG is out very, very soon, there is no reason for not having fun with the wii.

    But if you are truly not having fun then SELL IT and give the wii a new home to people who cant get a Wii and stop being ungrateful (sp?)

    but yeah it's a pretty boring console for us PAL users at the moment IMO [​IMG]

    super paper mario is pretty good. sooo much text though :| and most of it seems pointless..

    MP3 and SMG isn't out in Australia for quite some time. Played both of them and they're very good.

    Just a very low number of quality games I mean. Wii Sports got boring months ago and apart from the odd decent game it's been a real shit magnet for crappy games.

    cubin', i suggest you should sell your Australia wii and get a American Wii. Since they always get releases before anywhere else.

    I don't find that SPM has to much text, if you think so you can easily keep skipping it quickly.

    what's MP3? But I agree SPM kicks ass, possibly more so than Paper Mario for Gamecube...
