So my brother in law got me one of these as a get well present after my latest stint in the clink.

I had looked down on these things as a Steering Wheel-esque useless hunk of plastic. I couldn't be more wrong - its bloody awesome! The crossbow training game it came with is surprisingly fun too, especially the FPS combat missions.

Anyone know some good Shooter remote games that would play well with this?

The hand cannons are better. They actually press the right button when you pull the trigger. You don't have to put your figure up the front.

I looked at the handgun looking ones that Kat posted but for some reason went with the zapper, I think it was something to do with not being able to easily use some buttons that some games use a lot.

jumping around room playing raw vs smackdown with a wireless nunchuck, doing moves that have nothing to do with playing the game but make it so much fun......thats the ticket.....

I never saw P64, though the 2nd hand Wii we bought was chocka full of N64 games from the Nintendo Wii Shop Channel. I'm not sure if Nintendo made their own emu for the Wii or whether the Wii is somehow backwards compatible :/

I dunno about the legalities of all this stuff.. an admin will prolly nuke stuff that's not supposed to be here anyway.
