Now THIS what I expect from a FIFA game on Wii! Wasn't interested before, but now I've completely changed my mind. Let's hope for a more steady flow of online games on Wii, eh?


Zendalf said:

Wow. I am definitely getting both of these games. What I'll do with madden '07? who cares.

Once this is out there will be no reason to buy anything other than the Wii.

Sweet. Some Sony fanboy was dissing on Wii about its "online mess" and sadly, I was actually able to relate to what he was saying. I can't even get the online browser to work because my Wii Shop Channel keeps failing. Maybe it's just my Wii, I don't know, but it's beginning to get me discouraged about the Wii's online system. However, the details about these games' online capability with the Wii is encouraging me.

These look great but I hope that fifa isn't all motion controls, that would be annoying and hard to do. I hope you can use the buttons as well. YAY it's online! That's got to be good.

Meh, don't like sports. PORT KATAMARI!


Quartz said:

These fail.

This just made my expectations for brawl ease up a little.


Elementrat said:

I agree with cmk. Katamari looks perfect for Wii. I've never played it, but it just looks like a natural fit.


Zendalf said:

Scooby Jew, it is not your Wii. It is your internet. The Wii doesn't have any problems. Actually I lied, it is best to have the main internet you are using as the first option in the settings. Otherwise it is just your internet. Mine works perfect and we are in another country.

How can I play against another user in Madden 2008 for the Wii? I know this may be a basic question, but I cannot get the second player feature to work. Thanks for your help.
