    About to purchase my first few VC, who agrees with these choices?

    I won myself 2000 wii points by doing the necessary work and gethering about 500 spam emails a day... lol... But none the less I have them for a few hours of my wasted life!
    I am thinking I want to get Mario Kart 64 (probably by far my fav n64 game, I think it ruled over double dash myself)
    as well I was thinking paper mario(which I've never played).

    Good for my first VC purchases?

    Lemme know if you think either of those are unwise, and justify why!

    Mario Kart is an awesome choice. If you like turn based fighting games then Paper Mario is a good choice...Although I would probably get Kirby and another NES game.

    Personally I wouldn't get Paper Mario. I'd get Excite Bike and Kirby or Excite Bike and The Legend of Zelda.

    They're good if you like those kinds of games.



    I never add friend codes.

    I'd get Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time instead of Paper Mario. And if you aren't exactly loaded with cash, save your points for another month or two to see if Nintendo gets things sorted out with Rare and Activision, we may see Goldeneye on VC yet!

    Those two games that you have listed are good choices, but I would also suggest Ocarina of Time, if you have not played this classic already.

    Would Microsoft be willing to let it onto VC when they could release it on XBLA (assuming Activision agrees, of course)?

    VC games

    I love the VC aspect to the Wii. I think Punchout is great. I hope they put up the SNES version of Punchout soon

    Well there is something in the red tape about "it was a nintendo exclusive, so it must remain one." But yet Nintendo doesn't own it anymore, so they are at a stalemate until either Nintendo gives up the exclusivity or pays Microsoft for the rights. I have a feeling that Microsoft wont be cheap with it either.

    Plus, if Microsoft wanted to put it on XBLA they'd have to rewrite the code for Xbox and that would change the game a lot from it's original form. Nintendo wouldn't have to rewrite the game because the Wii can read NES, SNES, 64, etc. already. It wouldn't make sense for Microsoft to keep this game when they could profit by selling it to Nintendo.

    EDIT: I have an Xbox 360 as well as a Wii, and I couldn't justify playing Goldeneye on the Xbox.
