Revitalizing a Wii
May 02, 2010

Well, I think I may break down and get a Wii game for the first time in two years. Most of you know that I got rid of my Wii when I left Eugene, which was a little over two years ago (actually, it's almost been three, now I think about it...). However, my sister has a Wii that she NEVER uses. It sits on a shelf, gathering dust.

Why, you ask, after all this time would I go back to the Wii?

Metroid. I fucking love Metroid. Every single game, except for the DS versions which give me headaches and make my fingers scream.

But the Prime series is one of the greatest trilogies to ever hit video game market and Super Metroid is one of the best games I've ever played, hands down. When the game was rereleased on Virtual Console, I was sorely tempted (I still have my old copy, but... you know... it's a hassle to pull out the old SNES and make it happen). Then they released the Prime Trilogy and somehow I still managed to hold out, despite my heart telling me "I want it, I want it, I want it."

But no longer. With the new game due sometime this year, I can no longer ignore my cravings. I must play the Wii.

So, my question is... what's the best way to get the system dust free? A blower-vacuum one-two punch? It's been almost a year and a half since this thing has been turned on. I had a bad experience when I turned on my PS2 a couple weeks ago after a lengthy time away, I'm a bit concerned that the sitting has done some damage to the Wii system and am seeking the knowledge of those who are more technically oriented than me to help alleviate (or confirm) my fears.

Thanks!

remember the nes carts? you don't need no vacuum, just blow into it.

i'm curious to see how Team Ninja does on this one. the trailer i've seen which showed the last moments of Super Metroid in CG, has me pumped for this game.

Yeah, I just couldn't resist metroid. It's why I ended up buying a Gamecube, actually.
