Uh... The Wii has games?

Guitar Hero III as long as you've got two guitars.

Mario Party 8

Guitar Hero's definitely on my Christmas list. Or credit card list. Or burglary and extortion list. I'll be getting it.

For the girlfriend, I need something fun and coop that's non-confrontational. We had an "incident" involving "Tekken 5" last year on the "PS2" that ended in "tears" and "slammed doors" and "bitter silence" after I started reading "the" user's manual to find the special moves which I was then using to "pound sand up her toon's ass". And that was 10 minutes into playing the game. It took us a couple days to recover.

So.

Mario Party sounds good. I think maybe that go-kart one too. Something we can play and there's happiness and no anger and puppies and flowers and crap.

I'll save the brutal games for my dopey and more thick skinned friends. Laughing

Believe it or not, my girlfriend found it in a Walmart. No waiting list or anything. Just got lucky.

I found out today at Best Buy that the bastards aren't selling the guitar hero controllers seperately for another month. So, technically, if you wanted to have two controllers, you'd have to buy two bundles (as in two copies of the game). Stinks!

I'll be buying one at least though. Laughing

Mario Galaxy (yes there is 2 player and Gabe from Penny Arcade said his wife loved playing it with him)

Wario-Ware - as long as you two do not mind looking a bit stupid, it should be bonding.

RE: Umbrella Chronicles - if she is okay with horror, it is a pretty fun light gun game

The real one that you want comes with the system, though. Wii Sports is still the most fun multiplayer the system has.

Hell, I probably wouldn't even buy a game. I'd just DL the shit outta the Virtual Console.

And again, the rumor is, No Mercy is coming to the VC with an updated roster!

Raymon's Rabbid Rabbits is a great game for you to play with your g/f. My wife and I love it, and it's entertaining as all hell!

Seconded, thirded, or whatever. Was playing that tonight, in fact. My wife was stuck with watching (being down to one arm due to the other being in a sling from a car accident will do that) but we still both had a blast. That's a seriously warped and fun game. There is multiplayer, but you'll probably have more fun just taking turns playing the minigames once you go through the 'story mode' and unlock a few levels worth. That also avoids the whole 'Tekken Syndrome' which I think we've all experienced before. (AKA it's very hard not to completely thrash someone at a competitive game when they never play and you live and breathe the stuff...and it's very hard for that someone to take kindly to that thrashing.)

Frankly, good old Wii Sports is the failsafe, and it's free with the console. Another activity that me and the wife enjoy doing together, as thoroughly boring and lame as it sounds, is making Miis, especially with the new Check Mii Out channel. Between making contest entries, judging, and finding out where our entries rated, we're talking hours of absolutely-free fun. I know, I know, the gamer in you cries out in protest at the concept of being entertained by making small avatars of people, but it's just way more fun than it should be.

There's also something fun about playing Wii Sports Baseball and having your outfield tended by Jack Black, Mr. T, and Jesus Christ.

I am not too ashamed to admit that I created that Mii on my Wii.
