    you do have to be careful with n64 emulators... I have done some extensive reading on n64 and the system (believe it or not) is VASTLY superior to the Wii. Because the Wii uses a DVD-ROM, there is minimal system specs on it. At first glance, even though an N64 is older, it IS a ROM cartridge which is much like having a mini HD already attached to your system and thus runs faster as is.

    When you try to take games on N64 that run onto a Wii... the Wii requires a lot more power load on it's processor which CAN fry it... doesn't happen often, but it DOES happen. In which case, that sucks man.

    When I tried the emulator, I noticed right away how lagish the emu was and shut it off right away, that's a good sign alone it's taking a LOT on the system. I've also heard the same about running DVD movies on the Wii, though I've done this a few times without any issues, but heard it's not recommended.

    That is very interesting. I guess that must have been Nintendo's logic for staying with cartiriges for as long as they did, more power.
