Thread Details

Finally set up my Gamecube/Wii emulator and have some controllers. I'm playing on going through some old time favorites, also hopefully some multiplayer games for some weekend lobby pick up games at my apartment complex. Looking for some recommendations.

Right now I have
Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2
Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2 and 3

Don't know which Mario Party to get.

Star Fox (the actual flying one, I think it is Assault?)
Ikaruga and there is some other Wii game like it that has a few shooters in it. Shooter Collection? Either way Chaos Field is in there and it is good.
I prefer the Gamecube twilight Princess since it does not have wiggle stick controls.
Lost in Shadow, so underrated.
Xenoblade and Pandoras Tower.

Caldari on the streets
Minmatar in the sheets
The only Wii game I wanted to play was Red Steel 2. I liked Viewtiful Joe and Star Wars Rogue Squardron II: Rogue Leader on GameCube so I think we have similar taste.

Wii - There were on few games I beat.

Fatal Frame 4 is pretty much the best survival horror game on the Wii when playing the modded translated version.
Fragile Dreams has good atmosphere and story, but combat sucks.
No more Heroes 1 and 2, Mad World are pretty good hack/slash games.
Ghost Recon is surprisingly fun for Cover Point and shoot 2 player co-op game.
Resident Evil Chronicles(both games) are good point and shoot rails 2 player co-op.

You didn't miss anything, it was rather bad. Using the same controller for sword fighting and aiming really ruined it. You would constantly end up starting straight up in the air and flail around.

The game also didn't have any feature to zero your aimbox at the start so you were constantly just aiming randomly around in front of you and trying to get the cursor to end up on the target.

This was one of the first Wii games I played and it completely destroyed all my hopes for the console in one shot.
