Wii Have Been Converted

I totally blame Kevin and Sarah.

But now that the blaming is over, we're having a blast. You can read the sumarized version of how we came to own a Wii this weekend. The slightly expanded version is that we played around with Sarah and Kevin's on Saturday night and by Sunday afternoon we were playing around with our own.

The gaming console is tiny and takes up almost no room. It's shockingly simple to set up and even more easy to use. There are no complicated manuals and walkthroughs to play the Wii Sports game that come with the system (yes, you heard that right Playstation and XBox fans - FREE GAME). There is the simple wireless remote ("wiimote") that is super cool and minimalist. And there is the idea that anyone can use this gaming system from the very young to the very old and have a good time doing it.

Frinklin and I are having much fun beating the crap out of each other at various games and sports. We picked up a few other games including the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess and Wii Play. Wii Play may go back to the store as a trade in, but Zelda has proven to be pretty cool.

In addition to the games, Wii also includes a news channel with the latest in national and international headlines, global weather, and photos. It's like a web browser within in your gaming console. I've found myself using the Wii in the morning instead of the computer to read the latest news and check the weather.

If you're thinking about getting a Wii I highly recommend it. I'm hoping the next positive thing to come from this will be weight loss. I was on my feet for a good three hours today playing tennis, bowling, and boxing and I'm exhausted!

Kevin seems to have had quite an influence on the Wii-industry 'round here... I picked one up on Saturday after talking to Kevin who passed on that Gamestop had them in stock.

Keep Wii Play... the cow racing game (on a knitted surface) is well worth it, as is the pool game.

We've been working up a sweat boxing tonight. Watch out though -- Sarah just scored a 225 bowling!

Brooks - The cow racing game is awesome. That's the one we love more than anything else on Wii Play. Mooo!

Kevin - I only lasted one good boxing round. My arms are killing me! Between the many, many, many games of tennis, oh so many games of bowling (I'm maybe 100 points away from going pro) and several rounds of boxing my arms are hanging like limp noodles at the moment. I'll be taking a few aspirin before our we meet tomorrow!

Yeah, Kevin is a one-man Nintendo promoting machine. He also directly influenced the purchase of three DSes here at work.

However, being a photographer, you need to first commit so much time deciding the exact model of photographic camera to buy in addition to moving via store to store just so you could buy the most economical camera of the brand you have decided to pick.
