Haven't played it yet though. Been kind of busy. Anyways, does it have DVD playback capability. Also, what games do you guys recommend? Any other suggestions/tips would also be apprreciated.

If you want to use its wifi capabilities, Mario strikers is a superb game for it. The world rankings are interesting to see, especially as they reset every week. I finish as the 90th best once.

Exactly, the Wii is the ultimate party machine. Overall gaming is better on 360 or PS3, but as for fun factor Wii wins hands down.

Isn't having fun the whole point of gaming? If it's more fun then overall gaming is better..

Edit: wow i said the same thing twice..

It's not nearly as fun to play the wii by yourself as it is the 360 or PS3...

I have Wii and PS3. I agree Wii is really at its best when there's a lot of people around. Also if you're playing with either girls or kids Wii >>>> PS3 and 360. Once Mario Kart and Smash Bros come out i'm gonna be glued to Wii

depends on the game really.

i have a wii and a 360 and i would say super mario galaxy, metroid, medal of honor, zak and wiki, are all just as good if not superior (in the case of mario galaxy) to anything i've played on my 360.

More people need to play Zack & Wiki… such a fun, innovative, and challenging game…

I think it is down to $29 now.

yeah, picked it up as soon as i saw it was 30 bucks. great game, one of the best on the wii. was never into pc point and click games cause i've always been a console guy, but i can definitely see the allure.

real nice showing from capcom though. i think konami's on the right track with elebits too. hope the big 3rd party developers can keep it as original and intuitive as these games have been.
