It's almost here Anyone else excited?!?

I know it's available on torrents but I'd rather wait and get the real thing. It's getting really great reviews so far.

Once Mario Galaxy and Smash Bros Brawl and the new MAriokart are out, I think that the wafer thin layer of reserve I have which has stopped me getting a Wii so far will collapse.

I have a copy reserved for me. Release date is Monday I think for Canada. This game and Assassin's Creed are the only games in recent memory (in fact likely since Super Mario 3 for me!) that I have been excited for a game.

What luck then that SM3 gets released on the VC this week!

I didn't know Wii games could be downloaded. Is a mod chip required? I wouldnt' want to be hacking my system...but I'm not a major gamer.

Yep. The only console that can't play "downloaded" games yet is the PS3.

I haven't been this excited since Mario 64.

Mod chip for Wii's been out for quite some time now. They can be had for around $10-15. It requires soldering but it's easily reversible and i'm sure DIY'er here would have no issues.

I'm not really interested in the mod chip route. I was just curious if one existed or not. I knew of the PS2 ones but not the Wii. Even though "pirating" is quite en vogue with many, having been involved on the cs side of things for quite a few years now I can acknowledge the amount of work that goes into games and I actually do want to support the teams that create them. Also, price/entertainment value on a game that I buy (I buy VERY few because I don't game much) is far greater than anything else I invest my entertainment dollars in. If a game has intense replayability then the value goes up so much higher.

So for a game of typical 15-25 hours of gameplay at the new cost of 60ish CAD that is a mere $4 max/hr of entertainment value. Get a game that takes 60-100 hrs to complete on the first run and one gets a ton of value. I don't want to rob anyone of that. For myself and my wife, casual gamers, $5 for VC games like SuperMario 3 and $20 for brand new GameCube games gives us a ton of value which we really appreciate.
