In the last couple of days I've taken up Tennis, Bowling, Baseball, Golf, Boxing, Fishing, Billiards (9-ball), Cow Racing, Target Shooting, and a couple of other sports. All without getting off of my couch. Unless I want to.
That's right, I got myself a Wii. Thanks to a conspiratorial inside tip at a local Zellers, an early-ish Saturday morning, and the store having enough stock for all that arrived, I secured my third console gaming platform. I got to experience a small pre-opening lineup (over half a year after the initial release of the system), complete with mini-rush to the electronics department. I now own one console from each of the Big Three, and my first "next-gen" system.
Ah, the joys of new toys. Of course, now that I've had a taste of the modding scene, this system will be lucky to last a few weeks before open it up. The first improvements will be colourful LEDs for the Wiimotes (link).
I don't have much in the way of real games for the system yet. Just Wii Sports, and Wii Play. But with a monthly gaming night coming up in less than 2 weeks, and a friend with 2 additional controllers, we should be able to get some good 4-way gaming action going. I can't wait to see the party power of the new system.
Now I need to fill up my Mii Plaza, so help me get a Mii Parade going. Won't you be my Wii Friend?
