Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wii games to play with the family! (Recommend me some)
I've had a Wii for awhile. Nearly two years now in fact.
What I don't have is many games. I have the basics, Super Mario Galaxy, Zelda, Metroid Prime 3, etc etc.
But the problem is the only multiplayer games I have are Wii Sports, Wii Play and Tetris Party (which is excellent btw). We've been having family over more and more lately and my wife was in an accident back in November and she's still recovering which means she's home all the time and we're struggling to find things to do that we haven't done a million times already.
So after neglecting my Wii for the past year after I got my 360, I've been looking into picking up some fun games that I can play with the wife and are still good for 3-4 players. Rather, I should say that the other way around: I'm looking for 3-4 player games that are still fun for only 2 people.
I'm going to pick up Boom Blox as soon as the local Wal-mart gets it in stock (yay for gift cards!), we know we really enjoy that; but aside from that I have no real experience with Wii multiplayer games.
So suggest me some.
And the conditions are: They have to be family friendly and suitable for non-gamers since I'm pretty much the only gamer in my, or my wife's family.
Smash brothers is out; I've never really been a fan. I've tried it a few times on a friends Wii and it just didn't do it for me. Mario Kart isn't out per say, but it really doesn't need suggesting since everyone and their brother knows about it. My wife just doesn't like racing games really. Wii Fit is well...too expensive right now. If I could find it in a store for retail price I'd probably be interested but that's like winning the lottery. There's Rock Band and its ilk but the cost puts those really out of reach atm financially.
The games you suggest can be either retail Wii games or WiiWare games.
