Ah, the Wii. The Bowflex of gaming consoles. Too bad it wasn't big enough to use for hanging clothes.

It works pretty well as a door stopper if you have a light door and there's no breeze.

A word of advice for everybody whose Wii no longer works -- ask your doctor about 36 hour Cialis. I did, and now my Wii is ready whenever the mood strikes.

Seeing that this could well be the last Wii thread for a while (at least until it shows up in a retro / nostalgia gaming thread 5 - 10 years from now), clearly I had to seize the opportunity for one final penis joke.

I just got my first Wii used on Craigslist a few months ago. It came with the new Super Mario Bros and a few other games. It's fun. But then Super Mario stopped working. It said it was a disk error. I could fool it into working every 100th time if I messed with it long enough, and every other game worked fine. So I read about all sorts of other people having this problem, with mixed results. I decided that the lens was probably ready to be replaced, so I ordered one and replaced it. Super Mario still wouldn't work bu the other games were still all fine. So I downloaded Dolphin emulator and now have 4 Wii remotes connected to my pc and I can play the new Super Mario Brothers game with my kids now. It works pretty well. And I still sometimes use the Wii to turn on the light bar.

Xenoblade Chronicles was fun if you were able to ignore the horrible voice work or had the tv on mute.

I still play with my Wii. If I didn't, my Wii would lie dormant and flaccid.

scottydoesntknow: I don't hate the Wii, I've just never really enjoyed any of their games beyond the one that shipped with the console. My friends and I played bowling for days, but every other game just got a 'meh'.

it always seemed to me to be a great example of not supporting a system post release.

Hey, don't kill it yet. I'm having a yard sale this weekend! I need to unload that sucker.
