Too bad its still at 480p.

isn't most of the stuff Netflix streams in 480p anyway?  I know some of the more recent TV shows are in "hi-def", but all older movies/tv shows are in 480p.

anyway - it still looks most excellent despite being streamed wirelessly to my plasma TV.

Everytime I see nasty little artifacts across my screen when streaming, I smile and think "holy ****...I'm streaming this through my wii, virtually for free."

I got Goldeneye and Donkey Kong Country Returns for Christmas. Goldeneye kinda sucks, but DKCR is awesome. Remember New Super Mario Bros DS and NSMB Wii? Pretty much the same thing but with Donkey Kong. Highly recommended.

Anyone play Wii anymore?  Never played a "real" game on this outside of the bowling/sports stuff so I picked up Super Paper Mario and Super Mario Galaxy a few weeks ago.  Which of those two would be a good start to get reacquainted with the plumber?  Last Mario game I played was SMB on the N64 back in the day.

Super Mario Galaxy is my favorite Wii game. Start there.

I play, just not very often due to all the other stuff I've got going on.  I've played in the past year or two Star Wars Unleashed, COD games, and SW Lego.  As for the Mario games, I can't help you out there.

Yeah, I play mine pretty frequently, just finished TFU II a few weeks back. Fun stuff.

I just saw in TRU's Wii ad they have Punch Out! Think I will have to pick that up, even if Tyson is not in it anymore.

I was a loyal Nintendo guy from the mid 80's to late 90's, but jumped onto Sony because they had a more mature selection of games so I've been missing my Mario, DK, and Zelda all this time.  Hope it's not too hard to get back into these colorful lil kiddie games.   :)

Mario Galaxy it is...

Nintendo has, easily, the best character selection out there, something Sega, Sony, Microsoft, etc., have never been able to match. I disagree on the "kiddie" idea though. I mean, Mario, sure, but Zelda has broken away from the kiddie crowd though it's still somewhat accessible and Metroid is fairly adult.

Preordered the new Zelda last week, mainly for the exclusive Wiimote and soundtrack CD. But I'm hearing it's the best Zelda since Occarina

Once Zelda is released I will hook up my Wii again.

SMG is doing nothing for me.  Guess that means I'm an old fart now.   :-[

I have always been a fan of Super Mario Kart.
