    Decided to trade an piece of shit netbook for a Wii. Found some good guides on soft modding and plan to knock that out tonight.

    So anyone have a nTorrent invite I can get? Also what are the must have games? Is that motion plus thing good? What about the classic controller?

    Motion plus is alright. It's amazing in Tiger Woods 10 though. If you plan on getting that game just get the one with Motion Plus.

    The classic controller is great for virtual console stuff.

    Games:
    Punch Out
    Zack & Wiki
    Super Mario Galaxy
    MadWorld
    Zelda
    Super Smash Brothers Brawl
    Mario Kart
    Super Paper Mario
    Okami

    Others I've heard mixed info on:
    No More Heroes
    The Conduit


    Most multi-platform games are better on the other two systems.

    I just tried to bring up the page that had the tutorial on it (it was saved in my favorites) and I think a few of their site links are broken because it keeps redirecting me to the same page about flashing a DS.:dunno:

    To the TS:
    Get atleast one motion+. There are some games coming out that essentially require it for a full experience (red steel 2). Also, Tiger Woods 10 is completely worth the buy and with motion+ its one of the best sports games available.

    Other than that, get these games:
    The Conduit
    Zelda Twilight Princess
    Mario Galaxy
    Smash Brothers Brawl
    Mario Kart
    Boom Blox
    Metroid Prime Triology
    Murumasa: Demon Blade

    I assume you're just going to download, so pick out other games you want as well from the list of Wii games on IGN or something. There's some real gems in there.

    As far as the classic controller issue goes, I use gamecube controllers instead. Cheaper and do the same exact thing.

    Can't see the point in following a single guide and downloading everythign yourself. Go to any decent torrent site and just download the latest all in one package.

    The ones on BitSoup have a rar file you extract all the contents to an empty SD card and then just follow the steps in the guide. EVERYTHING is already in all the correct folders with any CIOS files and the most common applications etc.

    Here's an all-in-one I downloaded in July: http://rapidshare.com/files/255486937/Hacking_the_Wii_3.0.rar

    IIRC they covers Wiis with v4.0 of the firmware too. There may have been application updates since then though, but a friend used this to mod his the other day with success.

    As for games..

    I like:
    House of Dead: Overkill
    Smash Bros Brawl
    Mario Kart
    Boom Blox
    Madworld is different
    Super Mario Galaxy
