Menu

Is it just me, or is the menu modeled after the Wii Menu? --Color Printer 13:08, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

That could be very possible considering that Viidelectrix is designed specifically for the Wii. — Lapper (talk) 13:10, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Good, I'm glad I'm not going crazy. :p --Color Printer 13:12, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm fairly certain that the menu is indeed based on the Wii Channels menu. Maybe someone should add that to the article... Cyberlink420 18:46, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

obvious or not

In my mind, this might fall under the category of explaning the joke, but does anything think that an explanation is needed on the this page to let the reader know that the name Videlectrix has been changed from Vi to Vii to reference the wii. I R F 15:07, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

No, I feel that that's excessive. — Lapper (talk) 17:59, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Latin: Vii = Wii

Here's an interesting tidbit: In Latin, the letter 'w' doesn't exist, but the sound of the letter 'v' sounds like a 'w' as in the word 'Wii' (we). 66.57.81.101 09:08, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

That's true in a lot of Indo-European languages. Correct me if I'm wrong. Shwoo 09:10, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

I was going to do this, but you beat me to the punch. I'm seriously reminded of Latin when I see this. ¤ The Dang, Pom Pom, you see that? That's a nice golbol. Talk to me. 21:01, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

I seriously doubt it has anything to do with this. All that's happening is that they put "ii" behind the V in Videlectrix to refer to the Wii. Think "Vee-delectrix" rather than "Vid-electrix", for pronunciation anyway. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 06:27, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

It might also be worth noting that in Latin, "vi" (with only one i) (pronounced "Wii") means "power" or "force". Interesting tidbit? I think so. Unintentional? Probably very yes. -WhatIsThatThing 23:51, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

New Games

When do the 2 new games come out? Viklas 17:35, 12 February 2007 (MTC)

Nintendo Power

Is it worth mentioning in the article that the most recent issue of Nintendo Power featured Viidelectrix in the Community section?

It's already mentioned on Magazine Sightings. --DorianGray 00:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

New Games

I see the new games already came out, that would be cool. IF I HAD A Wii! :P Meh, at least these games are cool. I enjoy this version of SBZone and Duck Guardian rather than the other ones. Darkangel Get offa me!

I like them too, but talk pages are supposed to be used for discussing the article itself. This sort of idle chit-chat is better suited for the forum. A relevant thread can be found at http://forum.hrwiki.org/viewtopic.php?t=10457. – The Chort 21:02, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Uhh... I think it's bwoken.

I just now tried to get on to Trogdor! on my Wii, but the two new games somehow became not there anymore... This happens on my computer, too. Anybody know what's going on?

My computer took off the new games as well. Maybe they are fixing goofs? I guess we'll just have to wait it out. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:37, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Seems to be working just fine for me here. — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 21:45, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, the two new ones aren't showing up.--‪‪‪X66x6615px-X66x66.png 22:07, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah. They're gone. --Jnelson09 00:05, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Back Online?

Does anyone think that TBC are going to put the Trogdor and DG1 soon? Maybe in today's update or Thursday (because they sometimes do minor updates on Thursdays Homestar-winner 09:31, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

They didn't. - Gtxm78 Its Brown 02:06, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Wiimote

Am I the only one who finds it weird the Homestar games call the remote a wiimote, G4 calls it a wiimote, but normal wii games just call it a wii remote? Bad Bad Guy 04:34, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

"Wiimote" is the popular but unofficial name. It's basically a "Re = Wii" pun. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 15:34, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

I KNOW WHY THEY TOOK TROGDOR AND DG1 OFF!

beacuse the new internet channel on the wii dosent let u use the dpad

Let's take a deep breath and calm down. Do you know how many Internet etiquette laws you're breaking by typing in all caps like that? Well, you're breaking one: Don't type in all caps. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 05:22, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
omg yes it still does ask wiicade --Color Printer 13:24, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Little help here?

How can I access them on my Wii? Like, what do I do? Please excuse my ignorance...
