I've been enjoying modding it. I've been surprised at the prices on some of these wii games and the lack of stock at gamestop though. Not sure if the prices will drop in the near future or rise. My plan is to try out lots of different games via the usb thumb drive and if I like it I'll buy it. I like to collect a nice amount of games for every system I own.

My #1 hidden gem suggestion for the Wii...

That said, there are a lot of hidden gems on the Wii. Most underrated library ever.

Interesting I've never heard or seen that game before. I'll have to check it out.

The Wii had the most popular games of all time, it's hardly underrated, if anything it's library is probably mildly overrated compared to the Gamecube.

The Wii's Another Code R is the direct sequel to the DS's Another Code AKA Trace Memory.

The Wii games that were popular though were the big ones Nintendo made themselves. When I say underrated Wii games, I'm talking about third party entries that were either ignored or simply unknown by the majority of gamers.

Besides Melee and Metroid Prime, every first party Wii release was better than the Gamecube counterpart.

I will second the Another Code: R recommendation. It's a pretty slick adventure game, and well worth importing. :)

I think you're right. I liked the Gamecube a lot, but all the first-party stuff on Wii was absolutely amazing. And I liked Brawl a ton, too, because Kirby is actually usable again, and the Wii also has Metroid Prime Trilogy, which takes care of that problem. And everybody rags on Other M, but I really enjoyed that game a ton, too. People overreacting about that game may be one of the reasons we haven't gotten another Metroid yet, and that's a shame.
