    The Check Mii Out Channel is now available for download in the WiiWare section of the Shop Channel. If you don't know what the Check Mii Out Channel is for it is for people to post their Mii's for others to see and copy. There are even contests but no prizes awarded to my knowledge. The current contest is for a hatless Mario. I posted in that contest and also posted my black Cobra Commander in the Posting Plaza.

    Yes, it is a free download. Your Wii should be glowing if you have it on Wii Connect 24.

    Ah, that would explain the flashing blue across the room :)

    Hitler and Jesus seem to be the most abundant ones on there.

    God damnit, stop giving out these useless channels. Do something like a demo channel, featuring downloadable demos for upcoming games.

    So that's why it was doing that. I woke up about 3am and the Wii is flashing blue off and on, really bright too. I thought the Cylons were invading. I unplugged the Son of a bitch and went back to bed.

    i've been playing with it since last night and it's pretty fun. i uploaded a few of my miis but none are hitler or Jesus. i put up glass joe, steve urkel, larry king, dog the bounty hunter, crayon shinchan, and michael jackson. ok well maybe michael is overdone but mine is the best looking one. i've got a hatless mario up there too. i had to sacrifice the eyebrows for a fuller mustache so i gave him paper mario-style eyes instead of big blue ones. i just thought it looked better that way.

    A demo channel where you don't have to pay any money for the demos. :(

    Considering how small the wii's flash memory is, a demo channel is pretty impossible.

    and it's not "useless" if people have fun with it.

    This has to be the lamest thing yet on the Wii. Seriously.

    Sadly, I have... My wife was interested in the game, so I picked it up for her. After the first week, the novelty wore off for her, and it's been sitting next to the Wii ever since...

    The "Check Mii Out" channel ranks around the same level... I toyed around with it, tossed in a couple Mii's (Bruce Campbell & the Flying Spaghetti Monster), imported a couple I didn't have myself, and then the novelty wore off for me... I imagine that there will be quite a few identical Marios, who will all gain a random number of votes for the "best mario w/o a hat". Sounds like a blast...

    There will be downloadable stuff on the Wii soon. demos, add-on content to "physical" games, or cool experimental stuff from indie developers, etc.

    I like some of these weird and original ideas Nintendo is doing. Redline is right about other great things coming like some of the WiiWare titles coming in Spring.

    I'm personally hoping that the rumor from 1UP.com/EGM's Quartermann that THQ's old N64 game WWF: No Mercy is coming back with an updated roster downloadable from the WiiWare service. That game was my favorite wrestling game. I don't follow wrestling that much any more but I would buy that game in a heart beat if I have the money. Just add online play, more moves and create-a-wrestler options, and an unlimited ability to create wrestlers and I will be very happy.

    Quartermann: More MGS PSP, More Sonic Games
    Plus, remember THQ's N64 wrestler No Mercy? It's coming back.

    I was playing with the Wii channel all day, I was laughing so hard at some of the characters on there lol Jackie Chan, Mr. Garrison, Jack Black (it looks just like him!) Chuck Norris, Michael Jackson. Then there's some really creative ones like a Storm Trooper, Darth Vader, The Goron thing from Ocarina of Time, Scream Mask guy lol

    I uploaded Jay Leno, Dr. Phil, and Morgan Freeman, plus entered the Mario contest
