My other Wee!

Is a new Wii!!!! My best friend got my wife and I a WII and we both love the thing! Im a big gamer and work in the game industry as a freelance 3D modeler and own an Xbox 360 along with a game PC. I went over to my friends house who works for EA and played a bit on his Wii on launch day and its a LOT of fun! I would not think swinging the controller was A. So much friggen fun and B. So very exhausting! Good workout! Well I said to my friend that my wife and I would love one of these things, so he got me one!!! She is not a big gamer. Loves Pac-Man and simple games like that. The moment I got her onto the Wii she was in LOVE with it. Now she wants to play every night!

Today I had the family over who are visiting from Arkinsas. My mom, grandma, and grampa all got introduced too the Wii, and THEY LOVE IT!!! My grandparants are in there mid 70's and they had more fun playing on it then I have seen 10 year olds! They picked it up almost instantly and was beating me in bowling on the Wii!

Im telling you guys this because its such a nice little game system. Dont expect eye-popping graphics like the PS3 or X360. Expect so much fun that you will collapse hourse later and not know where your day went, or why your arms are soo soar. Everyone in the family will pick it up and play, and thats so much more important then graphics. Its easy, its fun, and at 250$ vs 500$, its cheap. Go get one!

Sorry for the shilling. But I now have two Wee's in my life, and splitting my attention. This is hard, but I love it!

K6 Wee

At some point the game system makers forgot that video games are supposed to be FUN!!! Pong was very basic but it was still fun. I played games on my Atari 400 that were more fun than PS1 or PS2 games. The SNES was the best system ever IMO. Yes the graphics are not on par with anything today, but the games were FUN to play! The N64 paled in comparison and the one game that I was most excited about Mario Kart 64 was a huge disappointment. The original Mario Kart for the SNES is still one of the best racing games for any system. Nintendo tried to make the N64 cutesy for kids but adults were left limp. The best game I have for the N64 that I still play is Pokemon Puzzle League......remake of Tetris Attack for the SNES. And now this Wii comes along.....a workout while I play the game......please. Nintendo has really lost their way and this Wii thing is the biggest joke yet. I would rather play a Commodore 64 than play the Wii.

oh.....and the PS3 for $600!!! Don't even get me started on that.
