    Hi just a little help please

    I have just received a Nintentdo Wii, and I also have a Gamecube with a couple of gamecube controllers, now I know you can apparently use these with your Wii but how does it work, do I need to buy an adapter or something as I cant see where or how you would plug them in to the Wii anywhere??

    If you stand your Wii in the vertical position, the gamecube ports are at the top. You have to open the thin slits, one slit is for the gamecube controllers, the other is for the gamecube memory cards.

    The best party game is the one that comes with the Wii console itself. WiiSports!

    Here's a list of other party games. (I haven't played all of them so recommendations from me would be limited) I'm sure other wiichatters will come soon enough and point you in the right direction.

    Alan Hansen's Sports Challenge
    Alvin and the Chipmunks
    Boogie
    Carnival Games
    Cheggers' Party Quiz
    Cranium Kabookii

    Dance Factory
    Dancing with the Stars
    Donkey Kong Barrel Blast
    EA Playground
    Fashion Academy
    Furu Furu Park
    Game Party

    High School Musical
    Kitty Luv
    Kororinpa
    Mario Party 8
    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
    Mario Strikers Charged (?) - Not really a party game but a really good game that support multi-players.
    Ninja Reflex
    Pool Party
    Rayman Raving Rabbids
    Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
    Smartypants

    good group game titles I would recommend:

    WiiSports (applies if you didn't get it with your console)
    Mario Party 8 (like a boardgame video game with minigames)
    Mario & Sonic at the Olympics (sports game with some more variety choices than Wiisports, although I would say WiiSports does its sports better)
    WarioWare: Smooth Moves (mini games)

    Best party game is Wii Sports.

    Other good party titles though are:
    Guitar Hero 3 (even though you will have to send the disk away in 2008 for a stereo fixed version)
    Rayman Raving Rabbids (not Rabbids 2)
    Warioware: Smooth Moves
    Mario Party 8
    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

    I wish everyone would read the damn manual instead of posting a post about a dumbass question like the one asked in this thread.

    I can understand that. But when you do end up having a question about the system, shouldn't the manual be the first place you turn? It has instant answers, you don't have to go to a website, type in your question, and then wait for someone to respond and hope that the response is correct.
