A Wii entry

Hey guys, sorry for the delay. I've just been absolutely occupied by a purchase I made over the weekend. I consider it an early birthday present for moi...





Yep, the Nintendo Wii, whose sales surpassed the XBox 360 here in Australia, is my brand new toy. It is the most fun and interactive game I've played ever. It forces you to get up and move (especially Tennis and Boxing) and engage in friendly competition with your pals. Arnie and I had friends over last Saturday and it was a riot!


When I bought it, it came with Wii Sports which included Tennis, Golf, Baseball, Bowling, and Boxing. Tell you what, guys, playing Boxing is like doing a whole session of Tae Bo in the gym. It's fantastic! I also bought Legend of Zelda which I haven't played yet. I am scared that I might stay up all night playing the damn thing. Arnie bought Wii play which comes with 9 mini-games and an extra remote controller.


I am now anticipating the release of Wario Ware Smooth Moves which includes over 200 mini games that make you do really silly things - great for parties - and also Dragon Ball Z. I remember back in high school when the SNES was the biggest thing. My friends and I would often wonder when a fully interactive Dragon Ball Z game will come out. We often joked around about doing a kamehameha gesture with our hands and the game will recognise it through a sensor. Now, the dream is for real and here's my chance to emulate Son Goku!

I read somewhere that there's a guy who played Wii Sports for thirty minutes a day... and he lost about nine pounds in six weeks. Hmm, makes me think about getting a Wii just to lose weight ehehe.

PS. You might see a different profile linked to my name coz I'm logged in to my work gmail account...

We're also planning on getting a Wii, too! :D And yeah, it's because of the reason kat said. Hopefully, playing it would help us lose a bit of weight.

And is it true that there's going to be a Dragonball game for Wii where you can really perform the kamekamehas? That'd be great! I'm more of a Picolo fan myself though. :P

So far, the Wii is out of stock from the shops we've asked. Ah well. All in due time.
