So, last saturday my Wii arrived. That, and a cold I’ve been fighting for a few days are the reasons I’m updating rather sporadically at the moment. We’ll get back to a proper schedule at some point, I’m sure…

So, the Wii — great fun!

I apologize for the weird picture, by the way… You can see for yourself that I was going insane, but you may not know why — due to some weird scheduling, the Wii Classic Controller arrived before the rest of the console… so there I was, holding a controller with nothing to plug it into. I’m sure you understand that that was more than my fragile little mind could bear.

Wii Sports — Boxing

Most of the bundled Wii Sports is fairly boring. It gives you a reasonable idea of what you can do with motion sensors in the remote. Out of the sports you can try your hand at, boxing must be the most fun. Both my wife and I really got into it, and were punching and smashing our opponents into a mush.

I’m now a living testimony to the fact that you can work out with a game console. My arms, shoulders and sides still hurt from all the exercise. I can also now state that no-one, I repeat, absolutely no-one wants to mess with my wife. She’s a killer at boxing, I tell you…

Unfortunately, I did that exercise while I wasn’t terrible healthy… consequently, on sunday my cold struck me badly, and I had to spend the day sleeping and playing less taxing games.

Rayman Raving Rabbids

We did play the Rabbid-game a little, but not very much. For some reason, it didn’t spark our interest very much. I suppose with more friends to play the game, it might be fun enough, but for the two of us just trying out things, it wasn’t all that great. I’m going to give it a few more tries before I come to a decision on whether I like the game or not, though.

    Uh yeah, me dear! One step more, i suggest, from the real word, he? Motion sensors, godness. Move, say i, in to the Black Wood, i suppose, is more workout then play on a 19” twodimensional fake. Even with a killer-wife. Go with bar feets in the grasses, it’s summer! Then, like id do, you don’t remind, when you’re last been ill.

    DAWN, n. The time when men of reason go to bed. Certain old men prefer to rise at about that time, taking a cold bath and a long walk with an empty stomach, and otherwise mortifying the flesh. They then point with pride to these practices as the cause of their sturdy health and ripe years; the truth being that they are hearty and old, not because of their habits, but in spite of them. The reason we find only robust persons doing this thing is that it has killed all the others who have tried it.
