how can I play classic nintendo games with save states?

Is there a way (legal/ethical) that I can play classic Nintendo games with save states? I have an original Wii, a GameCube and a 3DS, and between those platforms, I own (i.e. I paid for) several Zelda games and other 80s NES favorites. I want to play these games all the way through again, but I'm lazy and don't have time/don't want all the grind. [more inside]

How will one Wiimote work with a Wii and a Wii U set up?

Just bought a Wii U and I'm waiting for it to arrive. I plan on using my regular Wii still, probably for Homebrew, but I'm wondering what will happen when I try to use one Wiimote with two devices that recognize it. Is that going to be a problem? Will I have to unplug one or just deal with it running in the background on a different input?

All he wants for Xmas is a DS

For the last two years my (now) 6.5 year old has been begging for a Nintendo DS. I've resisted this long but with the holidays around the corner I'm starting to bend.

Wii help please. My 8 yr old is demoralized because he somehow accidentally erased all of his progress (weeks of effort apparently), points, money, loot, everything that he had saved in Lego Star Wars and he was very close to mastering all of the levels. Is there any possibility of recovering "all [his] work?" (sniff) [more inside]
