When deciding on a game console a few years back, both Eric and I thought long and hard between the GameCube, Xbox, and PS2 and because we are such fans of the Nintendo-brand games (Zelda, Mario, etc.), we went with the GameCube (which has since provided us with hours of entertainment). We knew we wanted the Wii as soon as we heard about it and have been trying to locate one for months using a method that would not involve us standing in long lines at ridiculous hours of the morning.
Two weeks ago, Eric got an web-alert that Circuit City had a bunch in stock online, so we quickly ordered one (happy birthday to me!) and waited impatiently for it to arrive.
Because it’s the way thing work, we received the Zelda game and extra remote early last week, but no Wii. It took until Saturday to arrive and we tore into the box with great anticipation. After three hours of playing tennis, boxing, and bowling on Saturday night for upwards of three hours, both Eric and I were very sore. This is not your traditional sit-on-the-couch video game system… I certainly do not feel lazy playing video games on this thing!
One of the neatest things is creating characters that look just like us. :)
