I'm on dialup, so no multiplayer online gaming for me. I rented Mario Kart and got the wheel rental free.
I have Marble Mania, Code Lyoko, and Pinball Hall of Fame Williams Pinball which I'm playing at the moment.
London Taxi, Metroid 3 *bagged it on a special $10 off used sale at Electronics Boutique last month*, Zelda: Twilight Princess *some family thought it was inapropriate for their preteen, ok why buy a Teen game for a preteen?* and sold it on EBay at 1/2 price with free shipping, Namco Museum, which is a PIA if you want to use the classic controller you have to switch out the regular controller when you load the retro game and hook the nunchuck back it when you exit the classic game.
I'm also getting the Metal Slug Anthology. It's being sent snail mail to me.
I must admit the Zelda fishing has piqued my interest in buying a Fishing Rod / Fishing games for the Wii. I used to like fishing, but I never eat the fish, I just let them go, now I won't have to hurt them anymore!
