Personaly id say PC. Though the fact that I dont have a Wii makes my opinion a bit biased.

After careful study, I've come to the conclusion that the PC version of the game is superior to the Wii version.

Aside from the fact that it's noticeably cheaper (especially with the season discount, and especially with the discount on Sam & Max Season 1 that I bought at the same time, and especially with Nintendo's markup on Wii Points in Australia), the game just seems to flow better...

The game just feels better with a mouse than with the Wiimote. Add to that the fact that loading times are less, the graphics look better (higher resolution, if nothing else), and that the game feels a bit less glitchy (though this could be merely because I knew where to go, rather than exploring everything, so spent less time in the game)... and I know which one I'd choose.

I mean, having it on the Wii is handy if I ever take it to visit a friend, and I can show them the awexomeness, but I'm definitely getting the rest on the PC.

Incidentally... worst part of playing the game through twice: Snake Boxer 5. That game can get tedious... Sure, it's fun in small doses, but the marathon run to get the rank up is pretty long. Though, I did beat my record from the Wii version, 35 to 32.

I'll pay extra for Wiimote control. Love that controller! Especially for Point & Click Adventure Games.

I don't even need to think about the choice right now, though. My PC became unstable and crashes when it tries to do 3D. I need to get me a new, non-broken video card.

I say the Wii just because at the end of the day I and just sit back on the couch and play on a big TV except for a small monitor.

Gotta be the Wii. Worth any extra money needed to buy.

I bought the first two eps on wii... but due to the wii's limited memory I can't have both on at the same time... so I might just end up buying them all for PC so I can play them all any time I want. I haven't tried PC yet but I can't imagine it's really all that different.

I think I like the PC version better. i can list hundreds of reasons why:
*Takes up less memory
*Load times are shorter
*The ability to store more than 4 pictures
*Cheaper (plus, theres only a Game Stop in my town and they hardly ever have Wii Points
*comes out world wide. I live in America so I guess that a benifit for everyone else

Since I don't have a Wii, definitely PC. Playability is a definite plus!

I would have to vote my Wii. The last time I played Homestar Ruiner on a PC: not glitchy, but the voicework? HORRIFIC. It was cut of at the beginning and stuttered at the end. When I played it on a friends Wii, I thought to my self 'Thank god'.

That's not the game's fault?
That's the PC's fault. The processor was not fast enough or something.
When I first got Homestar Ruiner, I had the same problem.
There's some setting that you have to change in your computer. I can't remember which one, though...
It would say somewhere in the forums on the telltale website.

All I can really say is that I like the fact I don't need a credit card to buy the Wii version. And I'm more worried about my Lappy's space than I am about my Wii's space.

EDIT: I saw some PC screencaps on the Wiki and noticed they were all Fullscreen. If the PC version truly has no Widescreen option, then the Wii version automatically wins in my buk.

The PC version will run at any resolution your computer can handle... be it full-frame or widescreen or anything in-between. The widescreen mode would be ugly if you don't have a matching widescreen monitor to run it on, but then the same thing applies to the Wii if you don't have a widescreen TV.
