Old School Games- Wii

I purchased the Arcade version of Golden Axe for the Wii and recently relived my hours spent standing at that machine pumping it full of quarters.

My wife and I managed to to get to the end pretty quickly but now all I want to do is go home and play.

I also got Super Mario Brothers 2. Did you know that wasn't originally a Mario game?

Super Mario Bros. 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From the wiki

The original Japanese version of Super Mario Bros. 2 is known in America as Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Visually, it looked like Super Mario Bros., with the same basic game format but with a higher level of difficulty.[4] Nintendo of America disliked the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2, which they found to be frustratingly difficult and otherwise little more than a modification of Super Mario Bros.. As they did not want to risk the franchise's popularity, they canceled its stateside release and eventually decided on reworking Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic into the Western Super Mario Bros. 2.[4]

I still have to following systems, in perfect, working order. They are not replacements, or models I've purchased recently.

Atari
NES
SNES
Gameboy
N64
Sega Genesis
Playstation 1 & 2
and a lame-o xbox360. This one hasn't red-ringed...yet. But the other 4 I have purchased have. Step your game up Microsoft.

I should have kept my Wii, though. And the PS3.... I regret selling them.

I have a Wii (both hard and soft modded) I run all of my games via HDD (But sadly never play it anymore)

Back in the day, I had a modded PS2 and was heavily into the modding scene. If your Xbox360 is red ringing (3 lights o' death) the fix isnt too terribly difficult, if you have taken a computer apart before. (Its a matter of cleaning/reapplying heatsink grease)

I've taken each of them apart and fixed them. They worked great for a few weeks and it'd happen again. Craigslisted them for 50$ each and sold em all.

Do you have controllers for the 64 with the joysticks still fully functional, and if so where did you find them?
