I love my Wii. We got our Wii last week and it has been lots of entertaining fun. We bought our Wii in a bundle, so it came with two Wiimotes and Nunchuks, and five games. My favorite game has been Zelda the Twighlight Princess. It reminds me a lot of the old 64 Ocrina of Time Zelda game, but with better graphics and more options. There is so much more you can do with the Wiimote because it senses your movement. At first I thought that this would be annoying because I'm a lazy person and I don't want to be standing up and swinging my arms around while I'm playing my video games. But, it turns out that it is much more sensitive and I barely have to move my hand to make it recognize the movement.

My favorite multi-player game is Cooking Mama Cook Off. It is a cooking competition game where you go through every step of making a dish. Unfortunately, the translation from Japanese to English wasn't done very well and the instruction are very vague and sometimes not comprehendable. This leaves the player wondering what it is that they are suppose to do. Which makes for fun funny fun. Matt and I have learned that this is a trial and error kind of a game.

I wish that I had more multi-player games so that Matt and I could play together more. I think that we will be purchasing Mario Party 8 at some point. But, all the best games are single player. I wonder why that is. Back on the old Marios, Mario and Luigi could play together as a team or in a wild race to escape/kill bugs and things and get the most coins. I think that was Mario three on the super nintendo, but it is difficult to remember. What happened to those days?

Well, I'm enjoying my Wii and nothing else really fantastic is going on.

I don't think that that is a Wii game. Isn't that a PS2 game? I also have one of those, but we are all besotted with our Wii, so we don't play the other often. We also have an XBox that we never play. Maybe I shouldn't buy things that I don't spend enough time with.

Mc said...

You bought Jade.

Anyway, you're wrong.

Robert, Justin, Cooper, and I saved the very fabric of reality on the Wii.

Well, Cooper was there some of the times. Regardless, we have set new goals for that game that will be fulfilled during the Sleep Deprevation Contest July '07!

I never bought Jade, the parents did! But you are right about my never spending time with her.

Who has a Wii out here that you know? Why does Cooper hate and shun you? You are going to abandon your girlfriend to play excessive amounts of video games with your friends?

Mc said...

She will be there too. Everyone cool will be there.

So, I guess you won't be...but Matt will be.

And your Baby sister.

Mike, who am I to question your ruling on my coolness. You are obviously the only one who loves me and reads my blog. Even my own husband doesn't comment on my blog. I should write something about him specifically just to see if he looks at my blog.
