GamrConnect Wii Recommendation Thread

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - GamrConnect Wii Recommendation Thread

So it's been a couple of months and I've added some games!

  • de Blob 2 (Platformer)
  • You Don't Know Jack (Puzzle/Arcade)
  • TrackMania: Build to Race (Sports/Racing)
  • Bit.Trip Flux (WW Rhythm/Music)

Yeah, it's been a dry first half for the Wii. Then again, with Pokemon and the 3DS... I've been a bit busy to give Wii attention anyways.

That... is a lot of games.



Love and tolerate.

why isn't this stickied?



Until you've played it, every game is a system seller!

Because almost everything has been unstickied in anticipation of Gamrconnect 2.0.  Apparently the new forums are supposed to have some functionality that will make stickied threads unnecessary.  What that functionality is, I don't know.

It is supposed to launch June 1st.

This is one of the threads I was pissed to find out was unsticked.



NNID: theRepublic -- Steam ID: theRepublic

Now Playing/Backlog:
Wii U - Currently Gaming Like It's 2014 (Hyrule Warriors) - 11 games in backlog
3DS - Currently Gaming Like It's 2013 (Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon) - 7 games in backlog
PC - Currently Gaming Like It's 2012 (Borderlands 2) - 11 games in backlog
Mobile - The Simpson's Tapped Out and Yugioh Duel Links

I just bought Okamiden, Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest IX, and Radiant Historia for my DS.

Edit: Oh, that's not the Wii...



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

Around the Network

Add Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers. Judging from the games that are already on the list, this title easily fulfills the necessary "quality" requirements.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yeah me too, that's basically why I bumped it. I spoke to one of the staff afterwards and was told there will be a 'search' option added to the forums. Perhaps that's the functionality that was being referred to.

MDK2 on WiiWare - so much awesome packed into 40 tiny little mega-bytes
