Proud Owner of the Nintendo Wii
While vacationing in Florida last week I received a tip that Target would be getting a small shipment of Wii consoles. I got up on Sunday morning at about 4:30am, went to Target and stood in line for about 3 hours. I also picked up a couple of games and some spare controllers… well half of it since I can’t find any Nunchucks anywhere. This system took longer to get a hold of.
The setup process was quick and simple, the console is very small and the controller is unique. I quickly popped in Wii Sports and found just how fun an interactive game can be. The response time on the remote makes for some very interesting gameplay, for instance by twisting the remote a little bit you can apply a spin on the bowling ball or a hook in golf. I also picked up Call Of Duty 3 and was kind of annoyed with the controls at first, but as I continued to play it became a lot more fun.
It seems Nintendo designed the Wii to be a more interactive system and not just a cutting edge $600 entertainment system, which makes it a lot more fun for families which Nintendo has always focused on.
If you get a chance to pick one up I highly recommend it, now off to play some boxing… Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
