And my counting was right. I just didn't include hours in that post.


Too many powerful consoles can't coexist. It's like having only ferocious dinosaurs. They might fight and hasten their own extinction.

EDIT: I just foind out that I can pick up my Wii on Saturday at 11:00 PM because I preordered!!!!!

The Wii is absolutely amazing. When you first pick up the controller and see the hand cursor following your EXACT moves it's almost scary how acurate is! The games are fabulous but they do take a couple of minutes get used to. The Mii Channel is fun, and lots of the games are cool. I was first in line to get mine :D and left with it 7 minutes early on my watch but the cashier's watch said 12:00 so it was cool. By the time I got home (I'm lucky I live so close to a Gamestop!) it was 12:02 on my house's clock. It was awesome. I played for 2 hrs. and was instantly hooked. Try out the console in your game store, you have to play it to believe it.

Set up of the Wii:
I did it very quickly and only had to consult the manual once or twice. The Wii is VERY small. It's only like 8 or 9 inches high and it is THIN. It rocks though. A CD is pretty much the size of 3/4 of it.

These are the games I got and a brief description on what is good about them:

Red Steel
Have only played a bit of it but it's pretty cool. It's a bit hard to control your aim at first but you get used to it after a few minutes. A little confusing at first but as far as I can tell it's gonna be a fun one.

Wii Sports
VERY FUN! VERY EASY TO PLAY! I literally got playing within minutes. Lots of fun for the first hour then the novelty starts to wear off. I played it again today (an hour ago as opposed to 12 in the morning) with a friend. It was even more fun then. Tennis is probably one of the best with close runners up being bowling. Boxing isn't as fun as you'd think it'd be, baseball is pretty fun, golf is fun but I suck at it. XD

Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz
VERY FUN! I like this one a lot. I also like how there are 50 mini games. Some of the fun ones (that I've played) are Disc Golf and Snowboarding. The Wiimote works perfectly with this title.

Excite Truck
CRAZY! I've crashed more in this game than I ever have in a game before. I only played 4 times and I crash SOOOO much! It's fun though. It's just fast, FAST, crash-infested, OCTANE fueled, fun.
The controls take a little while to get used to but not very long. After the first or second race you'll be pretty comfortable with it. (But you'll still crash! XD)

Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
I have not played this yet because I want to allot a LOT (XD) of time to play this one. It looks ABSOLUTELY AMAZING though.

If you have any questions just ask....

I GOT THE WIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry. It is amazing, as A3P said! Twilight Princess is good, Avatar is a letdown, Downhill Jam is decent, and Wii sports is okay.... I heard Red Steel was really bad... Xplay gave twilight princess a five out of five! A perfect score! I was waiting for four hours outside toys R US to get my greedy little hands on the thing... And it all payed off.. Literally. Some guy payed me to buy him a capachino.... (I know, I spelled it wrong...)

Red Steel isn't that bad. It just takes time to get used too. I think that Wii sports is great! Sure it gets boring, but you need to play it with a friend. As for Downhill Jam and Avatar, I didn't look into them because I didn't think they looked good. I reccomend Super Monkey Ball. It's fantastic! I was playing it with my friend the other day and we were doing a mini-game that's like the shot-put. It's hillarious! You hold down the A button and twirl around in circles to build up momentum. Then, you release the A button and the shot-put thingy goes flying. The Mini-Game is called Hammer Throw I think. You could probably sell the meh games and get better ones but I definitely think you should try the games more before you get rid of any of them.

My dad managed to get a Wii on Sunday, not sure how but he did... no preorder needed. XD

We have Wii Sports and Twilight Princess... I'm horrible at the sports except for bowling. XD My high score in bowling is around 190 and I hit Pro status, which makes the bowling ball have stars and sparkles on it. So awesome. :D

Twilight Princess = pure awesome. I just spasm with the controllers while holding Z to kill all enemies in my vicinity. XD

O.O

I want a Wii!!! XD Can't you guys just imagine me spinning around in circles and throwing the hammer off into the middle of nowhere? :P

Well, none of you are in my Gym class, so maybe not, but trust me, if you were, you could. :P

Twilight Princess IS awesome. I can't believe it. I'm still looking for the  stupid kid who chased the monkey away. I'm in Faron woods but I think he might be back in the caves.
