...but I'm a Mac. :(

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Done and done, really enjoying it. Also, just got the house of the dead 2 & 3: return,
which I thoroughly enjoy. Really fun if you can get a buddy to play co-op with you.

Was thinking of 2 titles I saw at Best Buy for $9.99 each:

Cursed Mountain
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

Anyone play either of these and can give recommendations to either buy/pass on these?

Thanks.

For $10?

Buy them both. Considering trade in at Gamestop, or even better a local store or just selling on Amazon, you aren't even paying a rental fee. Buy them.

The first time I saw it I was quite interested, but then came the review wave and they pointed out many flaws I wouldn't pass, like clunky fighting system and bland dungeon/overworld design. I also watched a few gameplay videos and it seemed to support this. Too bad it wasn't what I was expecting.

Was thinking of 2 titles I saw at Best Buy for $9.99 each:

Cursed Mountain
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

Great value for ToS: DotNW. I bought it for US$40 when it came out. I like it for what it is. It's nowhere near the original, but it's a decently good game. I recommend you getting into it with an open mind, not expecting the greatness of the original (which is why most people hate, other than it's protagonist).

As for Cursed Mountain, I played it for like an hour and it didn't appeal to me. Shattered Memories is a superior experience, but I'd suggest you get it when it's around $25-30 as it's a short game with some replay value.


Au revoir

Can anyone recommend any decent Wii RPGs/Adventure games? I use the term 'decent' loosely, as it is the Wii we're talking about here

Alright guys, I have a question for you and it is very related to this thread.

I am just wondering, what would you say is the best bang for your buck for games on the VC and Wiiware sections? I am at a budget of 1000 Wii points and would like to make my first purchase on there a somewhat educated one.

Paper Mario.

That's 1000 points, right?

Yeah, however I already own it for the N64. :/ Probably should've mentioned something like that, lol.

I'm starting to learn towards getting Star Fox 64 maybe. Or Ogre Battle 64.

Either of those would be solid. Haven't tried Ogre Battle 64, but I had some serious love/hate with the SNES iteration.

Now personally, I probably got more enjoyment out of World of Goo than anything else on WiiWare/VC, but I can't recall if that's 1000 or 1200 and if you're really in to the whole money conservation thing then go PC, anyway.

It's like 1500 Wii Points last time I checked. I played a bit of World of Goo on my PC, so not much of an interest to me at this point in time.

I'll probably buy games from the VC, since I want to play some classics, lol. :D Thanks though!

Looking for a good RPG to play on the Wii. I was considering Sakura Wars, maybe Fragile Dreams... although, I don't know if I'd really consider Fragile Dreams an RPG.

I just got my wii yesterday, looking for some suggestions on what to get. So far I picked up some extra knockoff remotes, jelly covers, and component cables from monoprice. I also have some of the nerf blasters leftover from the whole free best buy ordeal so I have blasters covered unless there are some really great blasters that I should pick up instead. Any other peripheals that I should get? How about games? I'm more into adult orientated games.

You don't need any peripherals besides a classic controller pro and maybe some rechargeable batteries.


Here are some of the Wii games that I own. You should be able to get most for around $20 each (maybe even much less if you try eBay):

Little King's Story (Don't let the visual style put you off, this is a deep game. Much better than Pikmin)
Muramasa The Demon Blade
No More Heroes
No More Heroes 2
Red Steel 2 (Requires motion plus. Skip the first, stories unrelated)

Monster Hunter 3
Tatsunoko Vs Capcom
MadWorld
Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles (also Umbrella Chronicles)
Resident Evil 4 (definite version of the game)
Okami (If you missed out on the PS2 version)


1st Party:

Metroid Prime Trilogy
PunchOut!!!
New Super Mario Brothers Wii
Super Paper Mario
Mario Galaxy
Mario Galaxy 2 (May even want to skip the first)
Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
Smash Brothers Brawl
Mario Kart Excitebots


WiiWare:
Cave Story
World of Goo
Bit Trip Runner



Other games that interest me when I find them at the right price:

A Boy and His Blob
Silent Hill Shattered Memories
House of the Dead Overkill
De Blob
Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers

Upcoming:

Xenoblade
Metroid the Other M
Sin and Punishment 2
Gunblade NY/LA Machineguns (Ghost Squad is out now)
