Hey guys, I was gifted WoG a few days after I received my Wii for xmas. Now, I'm not a gamer and haven't really played a video game since I outgrew my Sonic and Tails on SEGA 12 years ago. That being said I have fallen in love with WoG and am totally addicted. Everything about it is wonderful and I love it, however I have it on Wii and that seems to be a problem.

I've spent the past few hours reading up on Goo and attempting to get familiar with the forums and jargon and everything, but even still I have some questions I hope someone might answer.

1. What is OCD?
2. Does the info from my game travel to the leaderboards through Wii?
3. I never knew there were extra levels, are they available to Wii?
4. Since I got Goo through ?WiiWare? can I log in from my computer or do I need to buy it again?
5. I work on multiply computers throughout my day, would it be best to buy it through Steam?
6. If I do buy it through Steam is it reliable?
7. And are the extra levels available through Steam?

That's just the start, but I'm trying to learn the rest on my own. Any help would be appreciated.

Newbie gamer and WoG addict,

1. OCD is found through each level's menu>ocd. Its a harder-to-complete critiria, kind of an extra challenge.
5. Buying from Steam will allow you to play on different computers, but your game profile will not be shared. You will have to move your profile through computers manually.

Extra levels are user made, not official 2dBoy releases (so far).

Question 6 seems to be the only one unanswered. I personally didn't use steam, but plenty of people here seem to have used Steam and I've only heard good things about it.
