So I went out on my lunch break (I work 2nd shift) and picked up a Wii for my wife. Her birthday is tommorow, and she kept talking about wanting one for months after playing her brothers. So whats the deal with these things? Is there online play like xbox live? Is there a Wii version of the 360 arcade? I doubt I am gonna pick up any real games. We only played games like Big Brain Acadamy, and Wii Sports at her brothers house, and I have a 360, so I am probably set with serious gaming on the Wii. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, like I asked before... what can I expect other than just the normal "play a game from a disk" from the Wii?

GET METROID PRIME 3!!!!!!!
Best game for the Wii.
Resident Evil 4 is great as is Zelda. Online play is limited to a few games, Mario Strikers(soccer), Pokemon, Madden.

Medal of Honor Heroes comes out in November with 32 person online multiplayer. I hope they come close to what Metroid Prime 3 did with the controls. Also in November these titles come out.....
Mario Galaxy
Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles(light gun game)
Ghost Squad(also light gun game)

Yeah, definately pick up Zelda: Twilight Princess. I just recently got around to picking up a Wii as well because I wanted to try out the Wii Games bowling and stuff with the motion controls.

Zelda will keep you busy for a while. It's not like a lot of games nowadays that are short. It's still a long ass game. Most games can be beaten in like 12-20hours but with this Zelda I have already logged 50 hours and I'm just now at the last temple.

Is it better than Ocarina of Time, which is, IMHO, the greatest game of all time (Only game I have played through twice just so I could complete it 100%)? I heard you can get Ocarina of Time on the Virtual Console...

Zelda's are hard to compare to each other. Ocarina is amazing but so is windwaker and a link to the past.

Lets put it this way... it is a GREAT game and if you're a zelda fan you will NOT be disappointed.

And yes for 10 dollars you can dl ocarina

Metroid Prime 3 definitely makes great use of the controls. Call of Duty got slammed for screwing up the controls, but Medal of Honor supposedly got it right. Now that the other developers see how to work with the controls ala MP3, the FPS games should get better.

They put out Resident Evil 4 (an updated port of the Game Cube title) to hold people off until Umbrella Chronicles, which is supposed to be more like the big arcade shooters.

BTW, you can also play Game Cube games. The controllers plug into the top. Probably can find a lot of cheap used games.
