Auto extract AGH!

I'm trying to download some files to play on the Wii (nothing illegal), however these files do not need to be extracted, yet my computer does it automatically.



How do I get round this? I've uninstalled Winrar, yet the computer still extracts everything.



Thank you.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

You know, a lot of people say Nintendo don't do powerhouse consoles, but weren't the Nes, Snes, and even Gamecube on par with the competition back in the day?


I just wish they could blow us away, I'm worried this will be the Wii U 2 (I like the Wii U, but not many others do unfortunately).

Re: New Rogue One Trailer

Wonder if we'll get to see a CGI Tarkin at some point. I think you overestimate the power of CGI. As for the trailer...not as good as SW7. Be interesting what the culmination of the film is, presumably it won't be the destruction of what this movie is all about? Unless they're going to use footage ...

I had a cookies and cream Kit Kat Chunky last night, very nice indeed!


Any love for the Dime bar on here? or Daim bar as they now spell it.

Re: Nintendo releasing a new NES !

That looks really good! Would love it if they made a limited model for the UK (not likely).


Would love to see a mini Super Nintendo, or Megadrive somewhere down the line, I think I mini Master System (either model) would look cool too.

Re: Favourite classic British comedies

Massive fan of 'Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads' at the moment, great to watch on one of those cold, rainy nights, with a nice ale. If you've never watched it, I recommend 'No Hiding Place' (where the lads try and avoid the football score) and 'The Great Race', that's the first two I ever watch...

Re: Power-Ups that make a game harder

How about some of the blaster power ups in the Super Star Wars trilogy? Some of them were naff!


Or maybe it's just that I only ever really liked using the heat seeking weapon.

Re: The 'NX' is Nintendo's next-gen console

I know it's not cool to like achievements or trophies, but I'd love it if Nintendo added this to the console, stars instead of trophies?

Re: Nintendo Gamecube will be 15 years old in September

Yep, recently got back into the Gamcube, fantastic console indeed!


Currently playing through 'Agent Under Fire', not a bad game I guess, will probably get 'Nightfire' next.

Wii Zapper games on HD TV

Does anyone know if Wii zapper games (Aka point at the screen and shoot) works ok with modern HD televisions? I was going to pick up Ghost Squad and House of the Dead for the Wii, but thought I better find out first (Google wasn't much help).



Thank you.
