My new favorite toy - the Wii
Monday, November 27, 2006

This weekend Benny got a Nintendo Wii. When I first heard about this new system at the E3 unveiling, I knew I had to try it. What I love about this console is that the game play is very physical. Instead of sitting still with a controller while your thumbs and fingers do all the work, you can move around and use your whole body. Being an animated person, I tend to jump around playing games, even before the Wii came out. I guess that's why I love the Mario Party games for Gamecube. The Wii comes with the sports game, my favorite being the bowling game. Now I can finally get the bowling scores I'm not capable of getting in real life!

The only other game I've tried is Zelda. Being a long time Zelda fan, I have to say this is one of the better Zelda games out there... better than the disappoint I found in Wind Waker. The best part about using the Wii to play Zelda is the use of the grappling hook and bow/arrow. Ah, if only I had the time to actually finish the game.


There are only two things I dislike about the Wii. The first is the loop to secure around your wrist to prevent the Wii from slipping out of your hands. This thing looks flimsy, and you know what? It is! Benny already has one band that snapped off. The second annoying thing is the use of batteries. It's not that bad, just two AAs for each controller, but I guess I'm just not used to having to use batteries for console controllers. As it is, I already have to replace my wireless keyboard and mouse batteries every so often. I remember last Christmas, I told my girlfriends I wanted lots of AA batteries and they all snickered. Hah, I told y'all I'm always in need of batteries!

Anyway I highly recommend the Wii for those people who love to play games with their friends, at gatherings and parties. Just don't forget the batteries.

    LMAO! I remember that! You had batteries on your Christmas Wish List! LOL. Gotta love you Daph!

    I want to try this Wii out, it seems to be all the rage around here, even bigger than PS3, I hardly hear anyone talking about PS3, this is actually on Brenna's wish list, YEAH RIGHT...LOL.
