anyways, your game list is good. redsteel is a must have if youre into those types of games. me personally i liked it but im so jaded by guns and shooting that i didnt really enjoy it for what it was worth. wiiplay youll like but its strictly for 2 players. wiisports is for 4 players. the games on wiiplay are more "get to use the wiimote" type things. alot of point aim and click. little or no skill is involved in the game like wiisports. youll still like it and youll love "tanks" thats a givin lol. play it coop its the best and see how far you can go!
mario strikers isnt out on my end just yet to i personally can not tell you how the game is. just sneak around and look at the mario strikers subforum under the wii gamming section.
now to answer your questions
1) no, the wii does not come with a memory card BUT you can get VERY cheap ones here www.dealextreme.com they have 1G SD cards that are extreamly cheap. so obviously they arent hard to come by and you wont be riped off. they are official san disk
2) there is really only one wire to worry about and thats the sensor bar. deal extreme also carries wireless bars for VERY low prices that run on AAAs. just becareful though and make sure you get rechargables! it doesnt have an on off switch so it is always running.
3) there is a photochannel on the wii where you can view pictures and everything. all this is through the SD card reader. its actually quite cool. i have yet to transfer videos but i do watch movies on the wii using www.ovguide.com. i usually go to the site www.alluc.org. thats one of the MANY different movie sites to watch programs from on the wii
hope all this helps you out with your wii experience
