N64 Virtual Console games?

I would like to know before I go out and buy one, thanks.

Also, if it only works for certain games, does anyone know which ones it doesn't work for?

I am asking for Paper Mario 64, if that makes any difference.

One more thing, can I use my Gamepad instead?

I know this is a stretch, but will I be able to play off-tv with my VC games? If not, is there a LEGAL mod that might allow me to utilize this feature when playing VC games on my Wii U?

Thanks dudes!

Nope on everything. If you want to play with gc controls, get a wii.

DAMMIT!!!! I knew this, too.

You might think I'm trolling, but I just saw a bunch of videos for Paper Mario 64 and just got carried away.

I still own my Wii so the question kinda still stands.

I just haven't played my Wii U in a while, not because I don't want to, but because I allow my kids to play it so much, that I COMPLETELY forgot there was no Gamecube controller ports.

I am actually in the middle of Darksiders 2, and I like the game, but it seems like I am always just slightly stronger than everyone else, so I just demolish EVERYTHING, even most bosses.Love the game though.

About 14 hours in so far.

Well I'm in the US and I don't think we have access to the Wii Mini, so I might be wrong, but every Wii sold here is pretty much the same, Gamecube controller ports and all.

I actually own a VERY old Wii which I modded with a 500 gb external hard drive, and a ton of games but I didn't feel like blowing the dust off of it.

Thanks a ton for the answers though.

I don't think it's THAT bad, but it will be the better choice when playing 64 VC games.

Lol no N64 controller was way worse. The Gamecube controller was definitely the best.
