I gotta tell ya, I frickin love the Wii Sports game for our Nintendo Wii. The games are all so easy and fun. I can't wait for my dad to come out and try it. Perhaps we can have him over this weekend.
For those of you who live under a rock, Wii Sports includes: Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling, and Boxing. For Ferda and I, our favourites are tennis, baseball and bowling. Ferda is absolutely great at the tennis game. I'm still learning some of the techniques to master the sport.
I'm very glad that Ferda was able to pick up the Wii the other week. It's far better than I ever could have imagined. Now I need to decide what game to get next. Perhaps Sonic? Or Super Smash Bros? Or maybe WarioWare? Or even the new MarioParty8 that comes out in March...
... so many choices.
I picked up some rechargeable batteries from Walmart, so the wiimotes are all set and ready for extended play! I've heard from many that the wiimotes eat through batteries very quickly. In fact - one of ours has already crapped out. But that's ok now because I have these new rechargeables. Sadly though in the controller area, I am still missing one nunchuk. Extra controllers are very hard to find.
Later in February, Wii Play will be released. It's a collection of 9 games similar to Wii Sports - it comes with table tennis, air hockey, pool, and some others I don't quite understand right now. It's going to be packaged with a wiimote. So that's definitely a good buy - if you can find it of course. And I think it's only going to be $5 more than the regular cost of the remote. Question is do I really need 3 wiimotes? Matt says yes. But what does he know - cough - MythTV sucks - cough. :-)
Another release we are excited for is called Mama: Cookoff or something. Basically its like Iron Chef - a competition in the kitchen using the wiimote to control all aspects of meal preparation! Could be really cute. But I suppose it could also get old quickly.
And of course to be released in March is Super Mario Galaxy, the new Mario platform for the Wii. This is a must buy I think. Damn, seems like I will need to get a second job soon. Good thing I have always wanted to be a subway sandwich artist.
