So the Wii's been sitting around doing nothing for a while. I've got Skyward Sword, but haven't played it since my little cousins saved over my game file like the little shits they are. I'll get back around to it eventually. But i installed the Homebrew Channel on the Wii to put it to good use. I can basically download any game I want (only games that I own, of course
) and slap it on a hard drive to play. Any movies, TV shows, etc I download (legally, of course
)can be played off the hard drive as well. SNES/Genesis/N64/NES emulators are all on there too. Definitely recommend it to anyone whose Wii has been collecting dust like mine was. Putting the Homebrew Channel on there is easy. The hard part is configuring operating systems to bypass the security that prevents you from using a HDD for media playback....and it's still not terribly difficult.
Brb, playing some New Super Mario Bros Wii.....my uh, physical copy had a big scratch on it.
