    WII Console

    Buy 2 out of 3 games:

    Epic Mickey
    Donkey Kong Country
    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Which would you guys buy?

    We own Super Mario Galaxy 1 and my boy loves it...so do i jam more Mario Galaxy down his throat or give him some variety in his life?

    I heard Epic Mickey is pretty good and original. never been much of a fan of Donkey Kong, so I'd go with Super Mario Galaxy 2 as its the safe bet for the choice of a second game.

    I'd say Super Mario Galaxy 2 isn't different enough from 1 to be worth it. Not that it wouldn't be worth picking up on its own, but from a purely objective point of view and assuming you're limited to new 2 games, having 3 completely separate games is better than choosing between Mickey and Donkey Kong along with a sequel.

    Yeppers...got my kids ( 10 and 5) a WII last year and they now want a XBOX 360, I told them not a chance...

    They said the games are better, no idea I only play Ultima, save a few rounds of WII golf with the family on Game Night!

    Xbox 360s provide excellent emergency lighting and heating.

    You know Star Trek, when they go to red alert? Little known fact, but the red lights are actually Xbox 360s scattered throughout the ship that get turned on remotely. Also, the sun? There's a single Xbox 360 in the center with its cpu fan removed.

    And when you get bored of staring at the flashing red light there's a little known mini-game that involves a lot of work, but you can actually get the light to turn green if you work at it hard enough, at which point you can insert a DVD and play games on the damn thing! Who'd have guessed? This will last roughly 3.4 seconds until the red light comes back and you repeat the process.

    Chard, I don't have a Wii (nor do I use an Xbox 360 to heat and light my home), so I can't give any relevant opinion in the topic subject area.

    I am responding in this thread primarily to say that I am saddened to learn after excitedly checking (hence the need to make this post), that glittery pony heads have not in fact been added to the default smiley selection in Stratics. :(

    Wulf has tricked us with his fancy imported ponies.

    I will add a general opinion: if as you say the children have one Mario based game, it does seem sensible to go for variety rather than risk being subjected to dangerous levels of Mario. I think your 6 year old might have difficulty with the pace of Donkey Kong, but Epic Mickey sounds like a fine choice for both kids. (Game sounds really cute from the description).

    Sorry Sky, I didn't think my reckless actions all the way through.

    I didn't mean to taunt you with imaginary ponies this close to christmas.

    If you'd like, I can send you an autographed poster of myself to make up for it.

    chard what other games would you suggest for kids ages 6 and 8? i have a 11 yr old also but he only plays sports games. the 8 yr old is into war games like call of duty and medal of honor. but our 6 yr old likes easier games that he can just hit buttons like mickey games. I was wondering if they had mario party for wii? anyone know?
