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?

DDR solution for the new Wii that lacks Gamecube ports?

Game Cube recommendations similar to Resident Evil 4

I have a gamecube but the only game I have enjoyed immensely is Resident Evil 4. Didn't like the other Resident Evil games' controls and such. Any other games for the 'cube that you can recommend that are first person shooter, whether it be horror/sci-fi like Resiident Evil 4 or maybe a crime game? (Kinda over the WW2 games)...Man, I am a cynical gamecuber, ay...thanks for you thoughts and suggestions. I really appreciate it as I try to get as much use out of this cube as I can.

Must keep the Wii safe!

My wife and I just got a Wii last week, and since we're the first people we know to get one, it may be doing some traveling to other people's houses to show it off. Can anyone recommend a travel case for the Wii that will hold the console, cords, and 4 remotes/nunchucks? (does not need to carry games as well)

So I wish to purchase a Wii for a Christmas gift. However, there are problems. Taking up residence in front of Zellers might not be an option, and I don't think I have the necessary funds to negotiate a purchase on eBay, with the scarcity premiums and the "Giant expensive package" traps. I live in Canada, and thus the WiiFinder sites I've found cannot seem to help me. Is there anything I can do to acquire a Wii, or do I have to wait until they can actually be purhchased like any regular consumer product? [more inside]
