    For game images and links, I'm too lazy. Go look at them on Amazon. I personally have the Nyko Perfect Shot, and I although I like it, it does get a bit uncomfortable after a while of playing. I really want the Wii Sniper Rifle, but don't want to spend money on it until I hear some more reviews (there's only 7 on Amazon).

    As for games, I only have Resident Evil 4, but I'm thinking getting Umbrella Chronicles and possibly Darkside Chronicles. I am getting Red Steel 2 on Thursday, as well as a Wii Motion Plus (which I hope can plug into my Perfect Shot).

    Anyways, what guns do you use for your games?

    You cant use any gun for red steel 2 because 1) it uses motion plus 2) you need access to the face button on top.

    The Perfect Shot has a slot on the bottom of the handle to plug the Nunchuck into, so I don't see why you couldn't plug the Motion Plus in there. But I see your meaning with the buttons on top [​IMG]

    ive got the zapper. but im really not impressed with the amount of games that you can actually use it for. with most of the wiimote buttons being on top of the thing, it makes it really awkward to use for anything using wiimote buttons besides the B. having to press a button on top of your gun to throw a grenade or reload is really poor layout. games like MPT require use of A and B. so you can to find a way to hold the gun so you can press both buttons. and once youve done that, you're holding the gun in a way that is not like a gun. and once you get to that point, you might as will not even use the gun attachment.

    what they NEED to do is make a gun that doesnt require you to insert a wiimote into it. instead sell a gun that has all the wiimote parts built into it and then they can move buttons around and make them all easy to access.

    That's what i use! I actually found them at a local K-Mart, discontinued for $4 each. Got two. It's JUST the gun, no game included. They work great.

    Also, that's what i cut my hand on, opening up the box, that required 7 stitches. Take note: Nerf = stitches. [​IMG]

    Wii Zapper makes games worse not better. Can't see any of these shells being any good, would be nice if we got a proper light gun one day.

    ive got a shitty game called "deer huntin' 3". its one of those plug & play games that has the game built into a shotgun which plugs into the TV. on this gun, there is a trigger, a cocking button, as well as a d-pad and 5 buttons all within easy reach while holding the gun like a real gun.

    i think im gonna try to solder a wiimote into this thing.

    If you buy it, make sure you get version 2 for Motion Plus support. I'd read the article carefully to find out what makes version one and two different.

    Edit: Found a website selling the newest version, according to reviews.

    after looking at the insides of the shotgun itself, it looks like the trigger and the cocking assembly works as 1 button combined. which works fine for a slow paced deer hunt. but it wont work out too well for faster games with rapid fire and stuff.

    so, my next idea is to just commandeer the button assembly from the shotgun and slap it in the wiimote & zapper something like this.

    There's also a tonne of different ones on dealextreme ( http://www.dealextreme.com/search.dx/search.wii%20gun ). I've used the 2-pack of black and white ones they do ( http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.29212 ) and they aren't too bad, the trigger breaks really easily though if you pull it without a wii remote inserted. They are dirt cheap though which is nice, and the nunchuck can fit in the back fine, as does a motion plus.

    Also http://www.dealextreme.com/productimages/sku_29212_5.jpg it uses the energy from the recoil of a single round of ammunition to extract and eject a fired cartridge from the pistol's chamber and load an unfired round from the magazine into the chamber for the next shot [​IMG]

    Not crap at all.  I used it to play Dead Space Extraction and House of the Dead Overkill with no annoyance at all.  I can also fire foam-whistling-shell at my cats [​IMG] !!
