    Have you guys tried any of the Wii Ware games?

    Tetris, and Defend Your Castle are pretty fun.

    Love Wii fit, Wii Sports and Williams Classic arcade pinball. The girls enjoy Dora and Mario Kart.

    This thread made me want to unbox my Wii again and plug it back in last night. Curiosity kicked in and I decided to give "Homebrew" a shot. Man, that was a great decision. It isn't like modding the console... all you need is an SD card and a bit of computer skills to get it done.

    Now I get to play Quake and the original Doom ports on my Wii. It's definitely making my purchase worth it. I'm not talking about playing illegally pirated games. The Homebrew channel has tons of downloads for old games ported to Wii as well as some community developed clones of classics. There are also some emulators and ROMs out there, but I haven't had much time to experiment with those since I was so impressed with the Quake port.

    A Google search will get you to the guide/wiki.

    Hey, is Nintendo still bricking Wii consoles that are found to have the HB channel installed?

    I'm not sure. That was happening back in the day when people were using the Twilight Princess hack which made changes directly on the Wii itself. I'm loading the HB channel through the SD card. No changes are really being made on the console itself. Once I remove the SD card and reboot the console, it goes into the standard Wii screen and everything looks normal.

    The last system that I bought was the Gameboy Advance, used.

    I'm such a cheapass that I won't buy a system until its 5 years out of date. So when the world is supposed to end in 2012 I will finally buy the wii. Maybe they will have the end of the world fitness games available at that time to get me ready for the tsunami.

    That's right! they updated the firmware to allow you to boot directly from the sd card. I completely forgot about. DAMN! now I need to look up Homebrew again.

    After setting up the online feature, is the light on the power button really supposed to turn yellow when you turn your Wii off? It used to turn red when it's off, now it's yellow/light orange.

    The yellow light indicates that the Wii Connect 24 feature is on. This basically means that your Wii still has an internet connection going even though it's turned off. You can turn the feature off by going into the Wii's settings.

    Here's some more info from Wikipedia:
