So yeah, why don't we continue the potential No Mercy remake discussion here as well as any other general Wii topics.

Ok well maybe you guys can help convince me I need to buy a Wii.

I already have a 360 which I adore, but from what I hear the Wii is the ultimate system for guys like me who sometimes like to chill back and not necessarily blow shit up.

They could be remaking No Mercy? I haven't played it but I only ever hear great things about that game.

I love the Wii, but it is lacking in non-party games right now. If you want to have a good time with a bunch of people, you can't go wrong with a night of Wii Sports, Rayman Raving Rabids, and any awesome Gamecube Party game that you can easily find in the bargain bins - Mario Kart, Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Smash Bros. Melee, etc. And of course, the Virtual Console is second to none... XBL Arcade was great until the Virtual Console came around and made it look like a glorified Namco Museum Disc.

However, that's not to say there aren't some awesome single player experiences either. Super Mario Galaxy is absolutely amazing and unlike any game I've ever played. I've also heard great things about Zelda and Metroid, but I've yet to pick those up.

They could be remaking No Mercy? I haven't played it but I only ever hear great things about that game.

If you own a Nintendo 64, pick it up at any classic gaming store. I've never seen it go for more than $10. If you don't own the N64, then I wouldn't worry too much about it. The game hasn't aged all that well over the years and there are better wrestling games out there (Fire Pro).

The only game to come close to giving me a headache is Mario Galaxy. Don't get me wrong. It's super fun. However, when you're upside down on a planet, that gets a bit annoying.

Back the train up a bit... they are remaking No Mercy?

I own it, but still. More details are required.

A few months back, EGM reported in their rumors section (which is often eerily accurate) that THQ was prepping a remake of No Mercy for WiiWare, Nintendo's answer to Xbox Live Arcade's original titles like Cloning Clyde and Alien Hominid.

You know I used to mock the Wii. Then I played Wii Sports with my roommate last night and made a complete and utter ass out of myself. I fucking loved it.

But it's not something I'd play on my own.

You can easily find a No Mercy ROM and emulator for PC, as well as mod packs for it (With TNA, ROH, updated etc. wrestlers) on it. Its not that huge either, about 80mb or something... maybe... I can't remember.

Zero, you having Rayman Raving whatever?

If so, is the only way to get multiplayer games to play the games single player and they are unlocked multiplayer? If so... LAME.

Furthemore, my boyfriend has this strange obsession with Trauma Center. I mean, when we play the game, he is useless, because I pretty much do everything and he occassionally hops in and does something. But for some reason, he is obsessed with it...

I don't have Raving Rabids, I've only played it at a friend's, but I do think that's the way it works. I haven't played Rabids 2, it may be different in that one.

Nah, I got the old one.

Its just incredibly lame playing it that way. I wanna play all the fucking games right away with my friends. I don't like playing video games alone. It makes me feel like a virgin...

I don't have an N64 and living in the UK means I can't get Fire Pro. Where do I look for the PC version?

I was referring to themodernways post about mods and emulators.

Is it against the rules to talk about where to get things or is the PC version illegal? I know its against the rules to talk about where to get illegal things, but if the PC version is illegal then I was unaware.

I'm going to go and read the rules again.

EDIT: Where exactly are the rules again?

You know it requires an emulator, yet you didn't know it was illegal and against the rules? There is no "PC version" it's clear he was talking about emulating the N64 version on a computer.

I don't know what an emulator is. I guessed it had to do with playing non-pc games on a PC but I didn't know its illegal.

Now I know what I did I'll just leave it. I'll probably just get warned.

You're fine, Matt. You didn't know what an emulator was and you were asking where to get a legal copy of it for the PC, thinking there was actually one when there isn't, so it's understandable. Don't worry about it, no warning.

Although I am a bit confused as of where the rules are. I thought they used to be at the top of each sub-category but I guess they got moved when all the topics moved around.

Wii games J has

- Wii Sports (Love this, I'm a tennis and baseball pro. I wish it was wifi.)

- Wii Play (Was only bought for the extra Wiimote)

- Harry Potter: Order Of The Phoenix - Mildly fun for a while. Have now done pretty much everything and I'm bored.)

- Riddle me this, riddle me that, I've got an easy one for you, EWBats: Never seen, often heard, and never speaking the first word.

- Super Mario Strikers Charged - Good fun, but find myself not wanting to play it atm

- Super Paper Mario - See Harry Potter, but replace midly with great.

Virtual Console games J has

- Super Mario World

- Donkey Kong Country

- Ecco the Dolphin

- Legend Of Zelda: Link To The Past

I just need Battletoads, Starwing, Super Bomberman 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II and Secret Of Mana, then my childhood is encased in my Wii

So, my girlfriend is getting me one for my birthday, I wondering what I should pick up for it. As far as I know, she isn't getting me any games with it, besides Wii Sports obviously.

No More Heroes is a definate for me, as is Brawl and Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.

But what else is really good out there?

I assume everyone has heard about the upcoming Star Wars Wii game? I think it's the game everybody with a Wii truly wants, the chance to wield a lightsabre and be Vader's secret apprentice :D
