I got a Wii early Sunday morning. Here's the video I shot:



I played Wii Sports with two other friends (3 total) and played about three hours of Zelda. Once you get to the fighting in Zelda, it is so, so AWESOME. The combat in Zelda is so AWESOME.

Wii.

I think i got interested in the Wii too late, i think i've missed all the launch units here in the UK. Im still going to try though. How much do the extra controllers cost? I dont think it'll be that much fun without a couple of people looking likes fools beside me while i muck around and stuff.

How many different thinks are there you can do with the motion sensory stuff?

I got to Best Buy at 7:55 AM on Saturday the 18th. I waited in line a grueling 25 hours but ended up being the first person out of Best Buy with a Wii. It was f*cking awesome holding that thing and walking past the hundred or so people in line lol.gif

I saw a Wii in stores and I was honestly unimpressed. I do not like the controller for the Wii, I just don't like the idea, and I saw the Wii and was really less than impressed. Maybe my opinion will change after some games are released and I see what it can really do.

Granted, you do look pretty silly waving the little remote around, but damnit, it's a lot of fun.

I'm not going to be a Wii. Simply because I want the PS3.

calm down, jokes. Bad assumption on my part.

Back to the Wii:it sounds good for First Person Shooters, and I'm hearing good things about Zelda on it.

But I don't buy consoles on launch days. I'll wait a while.

Only thing the competition has on Wii is their hardware, and frankly, when the gameplay is this fun, who cares?

I know this sounds like something a news anchor would say, but...

Seriously, this proves that the although PS3 and Xbox360 have more Mature games, the people playing this "kiddie" console, are much more M-rated. This is darthyenik for GTAF news, good night.

Well what game did you play? How long did you stand there playing it? Was there mental pressure to hurry up and play quickly because there were people in line behind you? I've invited over several friends and family members already to do some free marketing for Nintendo for the Wii. I feel like a salesman!

I think I played Monster 4x4 World Circuit. I was there playing for a few minutes, in no rush, just about 1 or 2 people watching the game. I really was unimpressed, I don't know what else to say, besides maybe it was the game. The controllers don't seem to appeal to me.

Try out Wii Sports or Zelda or Madden or Rayman!

And you didn't invite me?

I really wanted a Wii, but when I found out the game I most wanted (Red Steel) kinda sucks, I don't want it as much...

One thing a lot of people still don't realize (and something I didn't realize until I played it again) was that the combat in Zelda is so, so much fun. It's a blast...and people seem to think that because the first person game Red Steel isn't apparently great that there is nothing else.

Zelda's combat is very, very awesome!

People who are deterred because they feel stupid waving a remote around are dumbasses. Get over yourself and have a little fun, tough guy. That IS the purpose of gaming in the first place.

And graphics are not everything. Games don't have to look uber realistic to be entertaining or of high quality. Some people bother me when they are so focused on visual presentation that they completely ignore how much fun some games can be. Maybe people who began their gaming in the PS2 generation are destined to think that way... but graphics are only a complement to solid gameplay, without which the most beautiful of games can be some of the worst to play. Nintendo has never claimed that they would revolutionize the graphics side of gaming. They've always been on the functionality and fun factor side of development. It's easy to call it "kiddie" because it doesn't spray blood and yell curse words in every title, but that's just a cop out. Give it a shot, it's a hell of a lot of fun.

Thank you for that.

I would really really suggest checking out Zelda. The game play is creaming-of-the-pants worthy.

Just got done with another sit-down of Twilight Princess. I'm 20 hours into the game (time tracked by the game) and I'm not even 1/3 of the way through yet. Thank you Miyamoto...

Oh, and I played Madden with some friends today. We were bouncing off the walls having so much fun with the control scheme.
