Wii Outdoor Games

9 posts in this topic

It's official. The family is getting a Wii for Christmas (actually it's my wife that REALLY wants it). I need something to play after the kids are in bed. I've seen some bad reviews on the Rapala fishing game. Are any of the other Fishing/hunting games any good? I've seen a few in the Cabelas catalog, has anyone tried them?

I have fun on the rapala game. I've read some bad reviews too, but I think people expect too much from a video game.

I have one of the cabela's hunting games, I cleared it, so it is not too much fun anymore. I basically wander around now and shoot rabbits

I've seen a Wii hunting game at Fleet for pretty cheap. You should check out Wii Play. There's plenty to keep you interested. Santa is bringing my kid Ski, Music and another Points card. We didn't give up the N64 but he seems to get more fun out of the download versions that are among the few available. And, just sayin', don't give up on the old systems as there's plenty of long-term investment value there although you'll never get all you have into them.

We've also added the LAN adapter so that he can play worldwide on the Goreweb, which is like adding another level to the games you have or rent.

OK Gang,

I just picked up a Wii bundle on Black Friday. I got the system with 3 controller, 3 nunchucks and 3 games. Wii sports is OK, King of Clubs is not so hot, yet, and Mario Sluggers takes some getting used to. We have only been playing for a few hours.

Give me some suggestions on a fishing game. Let's hear some reviews of why you like or dislike the game you have or have played.

Also, what is up with this Wii points thing, how does that work. My 25 year old son is pretty computer savvy and he hooked our system up to our wireless network in our house so we can go on line to get things, I guess. Can you check your email and things like that from the big screen TV thru the Wii?

All suggestions are welcome as I am a newbie ( but I have already had bowling games of 200 plus several times!

Windy

Can't really tell you much about the points. Mario Kart is a great game, one of the most fun out there. I would get that. I would check out this link Wiiiiiiii for other game ideas and online codes from other users.

you should be able to check your email if you have the internet program. it just doesnt play videos and some other things, but i believe i could check my email. havent used it in about 8 mos. if you want a really cool game for multiple people, definitely look into super smash bros. brawl.it is fun for hours if you are playing with 2-4 players. good for all ages too.

Rapala tournament fishing is a decent wii fishing game. Its pretty fun to play and actually do the casting motion and set the hook on the fish instead of just pushing buttons. However, its hard to play that now when i got call of duty on the 360 sitting right next to it.

Wii Points work when you have the LAN adaptor hooked through your internet modem. There's a store where you can buy discontinued versions of games, or instance, maybe 10 earlier Mario games that worked with N64. The games play the same as the older versions and the graphics are the same, too, and not high-end like the new system provides. A 2,000-point card costs $20 and and old game costs 1,000 to 800 points. You choose them and download into the DH on your Wii. I'm not sure if you can back them up to the external cards, but there's a record of what you purchased so maybe you can get a second download if your system takes a powder.

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
    • Shrimpo's and ratfinkee's, mostly in bright color arrangements with fairly aggressive jigging.  It was a blast!
