    I'll add Dead Space and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom to the list.

    For a Japanese interpretation of cheesy Hollywood action try Disaster: Day of Crisis or Trauma Centre. I still keep dragging them out every once in a while, I don't know why.

    DK Country Returns, DK Jungle Beat, Epic Yarn, Zack & Wiki, Okami \ Zelda, Little Kings Story, Punch Out, World of Goo, Paper Mario, Monster Hunter, either of the de Blobs, Trauma Team, the Bit.Trip series - should be enough for now.

    You need a Gamecube Memory Card - unfortunately they don't emulate it so you can use anything else like an SD Card. I prefer the official ones but they should all work.

    just a standard gamecube memory card is needed, it should be 100% compatible.

    if you havent got a gamecube controller you will obviously need one of then too as the wii controller does nothing in gamecube mode.

    Re Wii questions
    Cheers for answers chaps. Does the game cube pad work/fit 100% with the wii then ?
    I have one of those.

    Oh yes and last part of the Q, do all cube games work with the wii

    The GC pad plugs straight into the console, so yes, it will both fit and work (in case you missed them, there are two flaps on top of the console that hide the GC memory card and controller slots). All the games should work, providing they are from the same region as the console.

    Just done a bit of Googling and it appears if I were to buy a new Wii to replace my old launch Wii (the drive on which sounds like it is chewing into the disks), I couldn't transfer the games I have downloaded on to said new Wii.

    That can't be right can it? They can't be launching new colours and redesigned consoles without including a facility to transfer content. They aren't doing that are they? Tell me I'm wrong. Please tell me I'm wrong.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Of course it's right. This is Nintendo, you wouldn't expect anything less than a complete shambles when it comes to stuff like this.

    You have 4 choices:

    1) Forget al the VC\WiiWare content you've bought
    2) Buy it all again on the new console - this is Nintendo's preferred option
    3) Send your old and new consoles to Nintendo and have them transfer everything over
    4) Letterbomb the new console, download the games you've legally bought and install them yourself.

    Would it be possible to play Skyward Sword with a normal gamepad or would I be forced to use motion plus?

    I think the game is developed with motion plus in mind so im leaning towards a no.

    I'm going to go with option
    5) Pay to have my current console fixed and then never buy another Nintendo product as long as I live.

    Well done Nintendo that's a lifetimes worth of good will you've managed to piss away in one console generation. Impressive.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    You do realise that user IDs and passwords are too complicated for granny or Wii Fit mum.

    They've never bought a VC game or WiiWare ever and still have the welcome video clogging up the memory but that's beside the point.

    It was on my parents' Wii and that was a 2009 model I think.

    The 2010 models also come with some fake channels (Check Mii Out, Internet, Everybody Votes, and Nintendo I think) that bug you for your Internet settings then go into the shop and download the full versions.

    My Wii was making an annoying noise like that, I managed to open it up and find what was vibrating and then silence it with some card and sticky tape.

    No a bad idea. It's out of warranty anyway so what harm can I do?

    Will definitely do irreversible damage

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    There are loads of youtube videos about this that should be able to help you open it up and give you some ideas what to look for.

    I just got a Wii with Resident Evil:Darkside Chronicals and Dead Space:Extraction with Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicals on order.

    Enjoying the first 2 looking forward to the other

    Can a normal controller be played with any Wii game? I really don't like motion controls at all.
  • Deleted user 1 September 2011 15:06:35
    Depends on the game

    No.

    Very few in fact.

    Mario Kart and Smash Bros. are about it I think.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    How about Mario Galaxy 2?
