While I'm on the subject of New Things and the Wii, I recently bought The Godfather: Blackhand Edition and Heatseeker.
The Godfather: Blackhand Edition is fantastic. It's a heck of a lot of fun (I can spend hours extorting businesses, taking over rackets, and strangling rival mobsters) and it's a fantastic way to get my GTA fix, although I think I prefer it to San Andreas (the only GTA I've actually played). While I can't summon Harrier Jump Jets (Triangle, Triangle, Square, Circle, X, L1, L1, Down, Up) in Godfather, I don't believe you can strangle people in GTA:SA and it certainly doesn't have motion-controlled hand-to-hand...
Speaking of jets... Heatseeker's good, too. Not that any jets (I believe) have VTOL; it's just a useful segue. I quite like their idea of the Impact Cam - as the guy in a preview video said, it makes it just that little bit more interesting that Lock Onto Radar Blip, Destroy Radar Blip.
Ah yes, one other thing: I also bought Joytech's "Power Station", which is very good. The battery life seems decent enough (considering the Wiimote eats batteries for breakfast, brunch, lunch, tiffin, dinner, supper, and any other meals it can squeeze in), but since it's rechargeable (which is the point) it doesn't matter too much. It would have been better if it could have housed 4 Wiimotes, since that's how many the Wii can take, but still; one improvement, however, is it's now powered by a dongle placed inline with the power supply - rather than by the USB port as it was when I first heard about it.
