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.
