So I'm not seen as a total Nintendo Fanboy...

The wii's gonna have some hiccups at launch too. Not all the online channels are gonna work properly.

Oh and the debacle with the component cables... and Ummm... That's all I know of so far...

Here's virtually all of the game reviews available compiled for easy perusing...

IDK that doesnt seem like a hiccup... that seems like them taking their time to release a product that works.... :-P Also since it isnt hardware it can also be considered a "patch" like in a computer game.

So the Target by my house thinks that there should be no problem getting a Wii on Sunday... He said they have well over 100 on hand. I hope he's right!

Yeah I know

If that's as bad as it gets I think we'll all be pretty happy.

Good luck tonight fellas! I got a call from Reggie (NoA) last night saying my Wii would be available at midnight tonight! WoOt! Confirmation rocks!

HAHA!!! I'll try to hop online tomorrow for a minute. Maybe while Nulli plays or something. Doesn't sounds like I'll have much free time with Zelda being 50+ hours and such.

Thats insane...i think the only reason (apart from the controls) for me to buy the Wii, would be the countless amount of hours on one game...i love it, i die for games that last that long, reminds me of MGS and GT, LONG! Not the BS Gears of War that came out for the 360, what a disappointment and yes i'm bitching about the best game on the market, currently. Whats so next gen about it...the graphics...**** that, what about gameplay, i did all that on MGS for the PS1...not to mention that MGS2 for the PS2 was one of the only true next gen to come out on a system, meaning graphics, sound, gameplay, storyline...Gears of War = not next gen = BS = nothing innovative...whats after GoW, GoW 2...to fight more ugly goons with a chainsaw and lasts for 5 hours, wow...I hope Zelda turns out well, for Wii' sakes

Wow, there goes my name, on every hate list possible.

My name,
Giancarlo...add me in

PS.: that was wayyy out of context...ahaha

I saw that I've been looking at stuff all morning. Here's a compiled list of all the Wii reviews up so far.

http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrank...fault_wii/1031

Zelda looks great, Red Steel is getting bumped from my list for now (Gamespot gave it a 5.5, though I don't know how reliable that is) and I'm probably gonna pick up NSF: Carbon cause I think I'd rather have a driving game anyway.
