So I woke up early on sunday (6am) and drove all the way out to the Toys'R'Us in beautiful Frederick MD to buy a wii. I was the 23 person in line and I shared a bit of early morning zen w/ my wii buying brethren.
It's been over 2days now w/ my wii. I bought zelda (I strongly believe that owning a wii implies owning zelda), monkey ball, and madden '07. And I'm completely blown away by the game play.
Even the wii-sports game that *comes* with the system is totally addictive and awesome. wii-bowling simply rocks. I broke a sweat playing both wii-tennis and wii-boxing.
I'm waiting for ship-it day on all the online stuff (including the webbrowser opera) as it looks like nintendo is doing it right (aka not charging money for getting online, but only for the licensing of the game content itself).
So sad. I'm now playing video games once again.
