Tony Hawk might be fun, but really, I've never loved a Tony Hawk game as much as I loved Tony Hawk 2 for the Dreamcast. Which I still own. I should just play that one.

As for the Virtual Console, I'm sure some people will boner out over Ninja Gaiden. Me not so much.

I now have a Wii, a PS2, a Dreamcast, an Xbox, and a DVD recorder all sharing one input thinger. I need a bigger switch box dealie. And I should learn what things are actually called.

Hey, does anyone here have any hypothetical experience with a modded Wii? I know nobody here would ever dream of doing such a thing, but maybe you have some unethical friends or something. Case in point, a friend of mine is trying to get me a mutual acquaintance to mod his Wii. This apparently costs $100, which is less than two (good) games after taxes. But wouldn't you lose all online capabilities? Is it weird that I he would value the Everybody Votes channel more than unlimited free games? "Free" not including the cost to your soul, of course.

Stick with that instinct and avoid the Wii Tony Hawk, which is a condensed version of the Xbox 360/PS3 Tony Hawk. It is NOT worth the $50 and is barely worth a rental. Hell, the Dreamcast TH2 might even have better graphics (not to mention better controls) than the new TH.

There's no point in getting any snowboarding or skateboarding game on the Wii until WiiFit comes out.

I hadn't even heard of this game before, but I'm gonna have to try it out now:

http://wii.ign.com/articles/829/829301p1.html

It's called Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, and IGN just gave it a 9.0 and says it's a must have for Wii owners. Probably will rent before buying, but I'm excited to check it out now.

Not everyone cares about multiplayer online so the endless library due to modding may tempt some people more than others.

Speaking of tempting that Rockstar Games Table Tennis with Wii controls sounds awesome and I don't even own a Wii. Yet.
