    Could this be the start of cheating on the Wii?
    Really want to get a USBGecko now.
    Unlike some people, I like devices like Action Replay.
    Cheats can make a game last much longer, in my opinion.

    So, what do you guys (and gals) think?

    Until it's only offline cheating, no problems with it [​IMG]

    But if you can cheat online too... Then I'm 100% against this thing.

    I'd test that for you, but there are no codes right now for multiplayer games.

    Thanks, I appreciate the offer [​IMG]

    Good... Let us know as soon there's something available [​IMG]

    I wouldn't be happy to see people cheating in Mario Kart Wii or Super Smash Bros Brawl... It would ruin the online experience completely.

    I would never cheat in SSBB...I'm pretty sure thats punishable by death. Or worse.







    cheating in MARIO KART though would be pretty funny [​IMG]

    Online cheats are for lazy losers to feel good about themselves because they are unable to develop the proper skill. Cheating isn't winning, you don't fool or school anybody. In my opinion.

    Or for people who didn't care about the game in the first place and would rather ruin others fun because they have nothing else to do with their time.

    Offline cheats are perfectly fine in most cases and can enhance game play experience. Soo I'm not against the principle of this program at all. Its just a shame what people will end up doing with it...

    Haha, no need for a debate. My opininion is that cheating to win somehow doesn't feel as good as winning by skill, or even luck, so why would people do it?

    I think this is awesome, need to buy one of these now.

    I'm pretty sure nobody cheats online with things like "always have a superstar" to win, and feel like they won. Or at least I hope not :wtf:.

    The second part, have nothing else to do with their time, definitely rings true. Having a "always have a lightning bolt" item code would definitely entertain for a a good 15-20 minutes. let me tell you [​IMG]

    Only thing what I like in this is that screen shot thing. And if there's any chance to use codes, even online games, somebody will absolutely use them. That's one nail to online gaming's coffin.

    This kind of thing has killed the online DS multiplayer and will lead to the death of Wii online multiplayer. Mario Kart may as well go in the bin once the kiddies start cheating online with it [​IMG]

    Hopefully if nintendo are able to ban people from online play then this should be one of the reasons for doing it [​IMG]

    I ordered a USB Gecko and will be getting it this week. I mainly got it for the cheat feature,but I dont play any of the online games so you dont have to worry about me. I just would like to have some kind of tutorial on how to use the cheat function,looks like usbgecko.com forums is offline until May 4th and now I dont have any idea on how to use the cheat feature when I get my gecko..
