My wii was well worth the purchase purely for No More Heroes 1&2, and the fact I could get a gamecube copy of Killer 7 and run that on it. It was the console where my love affair with Grasshopper/Suda 51 games began so I remember it fondly.

The afore-mentioned Dead Space: Extraction was very good too, and Wario Ware was a laugh with some drunk mates, but that was about it really.

Rogue Trooper came out on it, but by then it was the 3rd console I'd owned that game on, and the wii controls meant it was the weakest version.

Yeah, same for me - I owned it on PC and Xbox by that point. 

I was really disappointed with the Wii version.  On the one hand they'd cleaned the visuals up a little.  For example, one port had some lovely scum sea vistas.  However, the controls were screwed.  First of all, it popped to cover when the program guessed you wanted to, instead of going to cover at a button push previously.  It would either not go to cover, or go to cover at totally inappropriate moments. It was so broken you had no choice but to run and gun, and this loss of tactical nuance destroyed one of the best things about the game.  Also, the wobbly wiimote aiming reticule made it very difficult to hit anything, even with Gunnar compensating for you.

That's a shame about RT. I thought the Wii controls on resi 4 worked great but that cover thing sounds like a nightmare.

I remember having the odd problem with RT on the WII but not so much that it ruined the game for me.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Yeah I should probably stress it was still a very enjoyable game, just slightly less so for the addition of the motion controls.

Playing Shovel Knight on Steam.

It's everything I wanted it to be - a retro-styled game that is challenging to play without getting too frustrating. Great chiptune music too.

Shadow of Mordor

This is probably the most derivative game I've ever played, being equal parts Arkham and Assassin's Creed with a bit of Tomb Raider thrown in for good measure. Having said that, the whole thing has been done so well that it doesn't really matter. I haven't got far enough into the game to really appreciate the Nemesis system yet but it already feels like the baddies have a bit more personality than the generic thugs you fight in many games.
I think I'm going to get plenty of fun out of this one.

Yeah, I pretty much agree with what you say above.  The immediate gameplay mechanics have so obviously been ripped off from Arkham City!! In particular the combat.

I'm finding it quite engaging, but nothing is screaming 'next-gem' at me. On the plus side, there's shitloads of great orc characters, and if there's one thing I like in a game, it's shitloads of orcs!!

I'm waiting for that to download right now after buying it weeks earlier.

I'm also waiting for Alien Isolation do the same and it may be hours....days.....

So, I finally finished Starcraft: Brood War this morning.

I re-stareted the original Starcraft in May and have been playing it fairly steadily since, maybe at the rate of a level every other day (there are 60), with a break for Wolfenstein.

The final level was rock hard. My time (remember when games timed you?) was 4h51m on the last level. To put that into perspective, my next longest time was 1h42m.

I'm now going to dust off the Xbox: I have Shadows of the Damned and Syndicate to mosey through, and I might give Red Dead Redemption another go, too.
