Nintendo Wii Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Ah the Wii! I think it would be a lot better if there were more adult oriented games. Nintendo has long favored youth games. Honestly, I haven't played my Wii since earlier this year. Golden Eye was the last game I played. Decent game, not as good as the one on the SNES though. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 7, 2011, 10:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Never was crazy for the wii remote or nunchuk. I probably would've been happier with one of the other consoles but only the PC can EVER satisfy my love for rts games. LOL @Marcus's comment, "Alright McT, let's not start turning this thing into a forum." this guy makes about a third of the current comments and then goes on to say lets not make this into a forum..too late...I mean already boned. -- Submitted By: (Lien) on September 7, 2011, 3:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Way too many games that could work well, if not better, if they had Classic Controller support. Honestly, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Donkey Kong Country returns had no reason whatsoever to be Wiimote only. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on February 20, 2011, 3:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 I remember Mega Man 2. I loved that game. Even to this day, its music is still fun to listen to. However, I think we need to remember that the race to make games that have better graphics, sound and game play, games that are bigger, longer, more epic etc is something that has always been with us. Remember back when the SNES was coming out and they got us all excited over what at the time felt like the amazing graphics it was going to have? Even during the development of the NES, they were always improving on the gaphics etc of the games. I admit that I never had a Nintendo 64 or a Gamecube. I got into PC gaming around the time the N64 came out and was getting popular. I'm not 100% sure why I didn't get into N64. Rather then risk a lot of incorrect guesses, I'll just leave it at that. Yes, I definitely get that feeling of nostalgia when even just seeing SNES or NES games I loved back in the day. Sometimes it really can feel only like yesterday that I played them. Yes, in some ways, the newer (well, not so newer any more, really, it started with the N64 in general) 3D games just aren't the same. Yes, I miss the simpler days of being able to plug a cartridge into the console and to just play. I think that just because one enjoys the new games doesn't mean they didn't love the old games. Yes, it some (perhaps many) cases it won't be the same. I understand that, but at the same time, I think what we're just seeing a natural progression that's been going on since day 1. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 22, 2009, 2:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I think I get what Marcus is saying. He wants to see new video games made for classic consoles. The closest solution I can think of is Mega Man 9. It uses the classic NES's sprites and graphics (though you play it on a Wii). On one hand, when one sees MM9, they wonder why the graphics aren't improved for a new console. But then you learn why: Mega Man first began the series on the NES (in fact, 7 and 8 were the only sequels made for other systems that use different sprites). Does anyone remember Mega Man 2? For many, that was their very first exposure to the series. It is also condsidered to be the best game in the series, as well as "THE" Mega Man game. The SNES and PS/Saturn sprites are nice, but they don't make me think "Mega Man" the way the NES sprites do. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 28, 2009, 1:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 -Super Mario Kart has been released on Wii today for Japan's Virtual Console. The game is 800 Nintendo Points. No release scheduled for North America or Europe as of right now.- Looks like another classic is available on the Wii. Marcus try it for old times sake. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on June 27, 2009, 3:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Alright McT, let's not start turning this thing into a forum. But anyway, do you really want us retro-gamers to wait until a future century or so to bring back consoles like the NES and Super NES in their original form? No, we can't wait that long, because then we'd all be gone. At this moment in time, I am not willing to start a rebellion against Nintendo myself. I'm just throwing an idea out there that can spark revolution. Who wants to see Super Mario Bros. 4, 5, 6, etc. for the NES console? Who wants to see cartoons like SpongeBob, Fairly OddParents, Dora the Explorer, Rugrats, and Scooby-Doo on the NES, Super NES, etc. consoles? I suggest there should be some sort of rebellion against Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon as well. Besides the classic consoles I mentioned, I also think the powdered wigs and dress of the 1700s should come back into fashion. -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on June 22, 2009, 9:37 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Marcus, if you don't like the new consoles, then here's what you do: Go to eBay, Amazon, or some other website like those two and search for all the old consoles and games so you can buy them. Or hell, find some retro gaming store that's near you and buy them there. That way, you can have all of old school consoles and games to play with and you won't have to do utterly retarded things like taking over Nintendo through some kind of rebellion like you want to do. -- Submitted By: (McT) on June 21, 2009, 12:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 All right you guys, this system is severely overrated. Sure there are a few good games, but the old systems will always reign supreme. Bring back the NES, Super NES, and Classic Game Boy! How would you like me to invade Nintendo's headquarters in Kyoto with a mob and command/urge them to move its HQ to Redmond, Washington (where NOA is currently headquartered)? Then, propagandize the American people that the old systems are by far the best and get them to buy classic systems. Nickelodeon should be the same way: Dump your new shows to hell and bring back the old shows! -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on June 9, 2009, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

12 It's still possible to play the old games on the Wii you can download some old classics for a certain price on the Wii channel. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on May 17, 2009, 3:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Hey, I like the Wii. I think it's cool. I'm just saying that the old systems deserve to be respected. I already have an NES and a SNES. I wouldn't sell them if my life depended on it, there are too many memories attached to them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 11, 2009, 2:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 What does the world being full of stupid ignorant people that are out of shape have to do with anything about gaming? There were still a lot of people in the world that were ignorant and out of shape back when the NES and SNES were out. And what I said about new generations of gaming wasn't an opinion. It was fact. If technology didn't advance, then there wouldn't be any 8-bit or 16-bit video games. Hell, there wouldn't be any video games in particular. Technology has to advance whether you think it should or not. I agree somewhat on what you said, because it's messed up how quickly it does advances though. You could have you hands on something that's considered the best thing, and then as little as 2 years later something else pops up and makes the thing you first bought obsolete. Personally, I like how video games have advanced from being simplistic looking with limited functions in gameplay like Pong, to being absolutely gorgeous and realistic looking with pretty much absolute freedom like Grand Theft Auto IV or Mass Effect. If I were you two, I'd go on eBay and try to buy the old consoles and games again, or use emulators and roms and play all of the classics right on the computer. -- Submitted By: (McT) on May 9, 2009, 7:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Once again, Robert, you're brilliant! I didn't see your comment here before now. So I guess I'm not alone. Classic consoles can't be beat! -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 7, 2009, 12:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Don't tell me I'm the only one! The world is out of shape and is filled with many stupid and ignorant people. Wii is almost not a video game system in many cases. In those cases it's an interactive peace of crap! Nintendo has come out with far too many new systems. The last new system should have been the N64. That's about as good as the graphics get. It's just like new versions of a software product aren't always better than previous ones. All 6 of you suck ass!! -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 7, 2009, 12:30 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Earth won't survive in a billion years because the sun will haved burned out by then. But I agree that all these old consoles deserve to be respected. New consoles are fun, but it's old NES and SNES games that really trigger my gaming nostalgia. There are many good Wii games out there, though they will never top the greatness of the classics. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 7, 2009, 12:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I respect your opinion, McT. But I still disagree. Not everything needs to modernize. Progressiveness, in the case of video games, is not always good. The new games are so terrible, they make Armadillo (a 1991 game published by IGS) look like Super Mario Bros. in comparison! Screw these suck-ass new systems. What needs to modernize is space travel. We have to eventually be able to move faster than the speed of light, believe it or not, or Earth may not survive in the next few billion years. -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 6, 2009, 11:22 am - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Marcus, the reason why they canceled those consoles is because every 6-8 years marks a new generation in gaming. With that new generation, they have to make a new console and new games for that console, while declaring the previous ones dead. If they kept with the old consoles and didn't evolve with the times, then no one would buy their games or consoles, and then Nintendo would go bankrupt. You can't blame them for something that's pretty much mandatory now. -- Submitted By: (McT) on May 6, 2009, 7:54 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I don't just think the Nintendo Wii boned the fish. I think Nintendo has boned the fish as well. It's quite obvious that they cancelled the classic systems that made Nintendo great, like the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy Classic, and Nintendo 64. What is wrong with the rest of you people?? -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 4, 2009, 9:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
