My arm… hurts.
Yesterday, Zhiyi and I had a blast of a time playing with Ming’s new Nintendo Wii set. Together with other visitors like Livi, Geena, Merv and Sherry, we competed with each other in various Wii Sports games like tennis, bowling, boxing and fishing. Just like my first Nintendo set (NES Famicom from the late 80s if anyone remembers), Nintendo has yet again revolutionised the console gaming market with their hallmark motion sensing controls that use an ingenious blend of technology and interactivity. Simply put, being able to swing your arms around and see that translate to your Mii’s (Nintendo-speak for in-game character) movements truly puts the fun in fun.
How not to play with a Wii – letting immersive gaming go to far!
You can hold a Wii controller like a tennis racket – single or double handed. Need to tell the nutcase on the left that Karate Kid hasn’t been released for the Wii.
At the end of the whole gaming session, I heard the unthinkable – Wifey remarking if we should get one too! Whoa, need to blog this down (thinking of Christmas). 😛
