Anybody else going to buy the new Nintendo Wii this fall? I've never been one to buy video game systems new, but I'm really intrigued by this whole new controller. Imagine playing "Harry Potter" and using your "wand" to cast spells. Or some Star Wars Jedi game and using your "lightsaber" to deflect blaster fire.

I hate the title and I don't much like the idea of having to thrash around with the new controller, but I like my Zelda and want it on the best system possible....So my brother and I are asking Santa for one for Christmas []

I cannot wait for the Wii. I'm definately picking one up with a copy of Zelda and Metriod to keep me entertained for several months until SSB Brawl comes out. []

I totally want Wii.

[] Only problem is that I'm poor student and I don't have the money to buy it, so I have to wait for A looooong time.

The only two things stopping me from getting the Wii:
  1. Monies
  2. The fact that it has Opera, the world's worst web browser

The final version of the Opera browser will be released in March. Right now its a "trial version" (AKA- bugs galore).
Sure Opera may suck, but do you REALLY need to browse the web on your Wii?
I find much more use in the weather channel of the Wii (and in January the news) than in the internet channel
Either way anyone with a Wii will probably be knee deep in Zelda, Rayman, and Super Monkey ball, and thus have no time to use the built in browser.

(side note- Twilight Princess is the best game ever by technicality)

I played my friend Mike's Wii all Christmas weekend, and Monday/Tuesday my arms were SO SORE!!! []

Has anyone played Rayman yet?? It's awesome!!

Btw, I kicked everyone's arse on Wii bowling. []

I picked up a Wii yesterday! []
I never was really into gaming that much but the interactive nature of the controller had me hooked when the Wii hit the scene []
And I must say I wasn't disappointed and neither was my boy []
Wii Sports is a hoot; tennis and boxxing being a right laugh, both me and the boy were in fits [] Though I do think bowling on Super Monkey Ball is better []
I'll be taking Harry Potter back; I can't get used to the controls on that for the spell casting [] I'll be swapping it for Wii Play which I wanted in the first place []
This evening I'll be cracking open Residential Evil 4 []

That should have been Resident Evil 4! []
I had a quick look at it [] I'm sure I'll get used to the controls soon enough [] Looks like it's gonna be a gore-fest! []
Oh and I did a Mii of myself! []

Well it's official, I am addicted to Resident Evil 4! []
I can now clear it in under 10 hours! []
And I can't wait until November 30th when Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles is released in the UK [] Of course our good friends in the USA will get it a couple of weeks before us Brits and the price will be around twice over here than there [] So if any kindly American would get it for me and post it over I'll be happy to sort them out the cost; PM's please []
And on 26th of this month Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is released [] The review on IGN reckons it's the best game so far to be released on the Wii and they give it 9.5 out of 10 []
Man, this console is gonna leave me broke! []

Yeah, me too... I mean, I could afford it, but it wouldn't be the right thing. Don't you hate the "right things" sometimes ? []
Anyway, I'm afraid that in a little while, what should be the "wrong thing" to do is going to become the "wrong thing that I did and I don't care because my Wii is great" []

You couldn't believe how many times I wrote "thong" by mistake in this post.

Hi all,
So this Wii thing is pretty good? I wonder about the new joystick design. Sort of adds a little exercise to your video game - more than just your [] thumbs [] , or so it seems to me, right?
