Got a Wii for Christmas, been trying to find an extra remote and Mario Galaxy but they seem to be impossible to find at the moment.

Got Assassins Creed for 95p yesterday for my 360 :-D. Pretty cool game, bits of it are slightly irrrataing. The gentic memory thing is way OTT, would have been better if it was just a simple storyline, where he was an assasin in the 13th century or whenever it is.

If you're going to be spending a decent amount of time on the wii, it might be worth getting rechargable batteries or a rechargable battery pack. I found some good usb rechargable battery packs on ebay for a fiver, and they've been great.

12th ;) I haven't got into it yet, but it is impressive. Shame about the few bugs on it though that I've heard about :|

Yeh, its irratating when you want to jump from one building to another and its a fraction too far, yet he doesnt reach for a fuckin ledge then you fall to your death. The fight scenes are good, if a little irratating at times

a bit of a twink? with 100g you could be mistaken for a level 40-45 if you bought the right gear! Why you keep aggroing wiht a hunter anyways? Just kite them with your pet! Best one is one thats got I think its growl, then they keep aggro! Dont forget to use your traps and wing clips!

I have a level 43 warrior, a level 36 hunter, level 18 rogue, level 14 mage :D The latter 2 being twinks! Bought my mount with my hunter its so much fun!

You didnt say which server your on!

Aye, its when i went into the bit of Arathi Highlands were there are level 35's there, i was only a lvl 28/29 at the time...

and i dont use wing clip that often, i jest let my pet attack (when theres not too many enemies around) and then i put my hunters mark on and use my bow... but i need a better bow, as i dont think it is doing what is needed for my lvl, but wen i go auction house there is no decent bows... ill just have to be patient.

You want to go battlegrounds and save up loads of PvP points! You can buy all sorts of cool stuff from battlegrounds! Still no mention of which server your on, but I'll go with Terenas!

You could do wiht getting a better belt/gloves/and helmet though! The bow is also not so good!

Only one way to find out for sure: Google Images.

A twink is a character that has unusually good iteams and armor for its level, making it fight like a character a good 10 levels higher! They are absolute bastards because you dont have a chance at killing them unless you dedicate your life to the game to make your own twink!
