Well I hooked up the Nintendo Wii today for the wife and kids, and played it a bit too. Seems a bit shite to be honest – way too gimmicky and blah. I think the idea of the Wiimote and all that is neat in theory, but I think we’re at least 2 video game system generations away from anywhere near the potential of it. Plus for some games you gotta have that stupid nunchuk controller too, meh.
I didn’t play much of it to be honest. I played Wii Sports and that was about it, navigated the menus and stuff. The wife and Mason seem to be having fun with Super Smash Brothers right now, so maybe I’ll try that later. The whole just seems pretty gay and amateurish to me, especially all the menus etc, compared to the much more polished and awesome XBox 360.
