cool, let me know on this thread when you get further! I definitely have the patience, if the pay off is worth it, especially for survival horror games.

It (Cursed Mountain) is slow out of the gate but does get better, I give it a 6 out of 10 right now but it's really not my kinda game I just picked it up since it was $10.

If you can get it for around that price and are in to these kinda games then I say do it, you might end up liking it more then I do since you are in to these kinda games.

Should I get:
Muramasa
Zack and Wiki
or Little Kings story
I can only get two at the moment.
Thanks in advance!

Little King's Story is addictive, Pikmin-like fun with a subtle sense of humor.

It's definitely subtle. Muramasa is the way to go.

I loved Red Steel 2, I think it is a pretty underrated game do to the fact how poor the first one was.

I'm still playing through it, but I must say I enjoyed the first one as well. It was my very first wii game, I had it I think before I even got the console. :)

What about No More Heroes? I've always been curious to jump in. Is it worth it to pick the first and second one up if I've never played them?

Send me the best you've got. Send me your strongest machines. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me.

I'm thinking that Super Mario Galaxy 2 might be easier for me since it's linear. For some reason, I like linear games instead of wanderfests.

Hell yes! Elebits is a gem!
It's pretty surreal and veryyy addictive. The only problem I had with it was the drop in frame rate once you hit the outdoor levels. For me the first half of the game was better than the second. The more tightly confined and smaller areas are fantastic, while some of the outdoor levels are pretty crazy in their own right. I say definitly get a copy! ;) For me it's an 8/10

Other gems would have to be Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz and Silent HIll Shattered Memories. And the 'amazing' gems would have to be Wario Land Shake it!, Klonoa and Zack & Wiki ;)

Also, Dewy's Adventure is definitly a title that has me somewhat interested...Is it really worth dropping $20 for it?

In Super Mario Galaxy 2, progression is based on how many stars you have. While you don't have to finish a galaxy to proceed to the next, you do need to accumulate enough stars from the galaxies available to you in order to continue. Sometimes, yes, that may involve "requiring" you to beat a galaxy, though you do get your choice of what galaxy to nab the needed stars from (a choice that grows as you get further along in the game).

No More Heroes is kind of a polarizing game. I love it, but I know some people who are on the fence about it. It's a very weird game, that's for sure. Weird story presentation, colorful characters, bizarre moments, graphic violence. It almost has a David Lynch vibe at times, and other times it feels like Ninja Scrolls. If you happened to play Killer7 for the PS2/GCN and liked that game, chances are you'll like No More Heroes.

The first game features a kind of crappy GTA like overworld, but with a Japanese sandbox approach, so imagine Liberty City with almost nothing to interact with. They took out the overworld in the sequel in favor of a menu based system, which works better IMO, but both games are totally worth playing. They both have their faults, but their charm makes them hard to dislike.

Speed Racer would be an awesome Wii exclusive if it wasn't so ugly. The tracks are a sickly pink and orange for the most part, everything on the screen is blurry in motion, when you explode it looks like purple confetti, and your wheels leave yellow streaks on the road instead of sparks like in the live action movie. In fact a big problem with the game is the lack of movie or anime tie-ins, it doesn't even have cut scenes. The license is totally wasted here. The violent Car-Fu game play and controls were a lot of fun though (I don't think it uses the classic controller if that matters to you). It's usually only 10 or 15 dollars at Amazon and that's not a bad deal.

You might want to wait for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit or Driver: San Francisco to come out later this year if you want another violent driving game.

Adding my two cents here, I can say that you have to be really open-minded about what games can be in order to enjoy No More Heroes. I always try to keep an open mind for new types of games, but I still feel like there's so little replay value in the two titles that after the ride is over, you don't ever want to take it again. It's not even like playing Metroid Prime, where you might come back to it a couple years later and get a hankering to play it (perhaps because No More Heroes is so "extreme" that it's burned in my mind and will never appear fresh to me again since I'll never really forget it). The day I beat No More Heroes was the last time I ever played it or wanted to, and in the back of my mind I know I'll never want to replay it. I feel like once I complete No More Heroes 2, I'll feel the same way. Which is why I've put off finishing it, to avoid getting that feeling about another game. I think I'm about halfway through though.

If you don't mind taking one good ride you'll probably not want to take again, it will be up your alley, but otherwise, it may not be.

Well both games are good, anyways they are not great, mario kart is fun, but is like any other mario kart, so if you like mario kart, get it! Mario Galaxy is also fun, but for a game like that it have a ver very poor storyline, but no mario game got a good story line, so you wichever you choose won't be a bad choice, anyways you can consider to get other games like sin & punishment, monster hunter, or wait for upcoming games, like kirby's epic yarn or goldeneye.

@Monix - I personally don't think you could go wrong with either. I'd get MKWii if you're into online multiplayer or multiplayer in general and SMG if you're the single-player type.

Exactly.

Super Mario Galaxy isn't great? It has perfect controls, amazing gameplay, and great style. The game is all around perfect, and even the storyline is advanced for a Mario game.

How can you even recommend a game like Sin & Punishment to one of the greatest games of all time? Sorry to all you Sin & Punishment fans, but Galaxy is one of the best games of all time.

@Kingbuilder, sorry dude, but I don't fin it great, it is for me... rather boring. So it doesn't have the action or exploration I like, whe Super Mario Galaxy come out, I was waiting for something as great as Super Mario Sunshine, but well, it was good, but not as good as I was expecting. Also sometime the gravity stuffs (in some parts) make the game pretty confusing, but well other part were very well made. So Super Mario Galaxy is good, very good, but it is not... great!
