I got a Wii!!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I've wanted a Wii pretty much since I first set eyes on it ages ago, and have mentioned it to DH a few more times ever since I was reading about Animal Crossing

Well I've just had a horrible week with 4 days in hospital due to an infection that they're worried about, and I have gone through a heap of pain, so he decided I've been through more than enough and deserve a Wii

So tonight I got home from class and discovered in the lounge room a Wii He also got some other exciting bits and pieces, and a game called Petz Catz that he saw on the way out that he thought I might like. He's such a sweetie

I'm glad you got your Wii, just wish you hadn't had to go through so much to get it. Now I have to ask. What is a Wii? I have a feeling it's one of those things everybody is supposed to know.

Wii want to play!

I'm sorry to hear you have been having those health issues. I hope you are much better soon!

Video games actually help relieve pain... I read it somewhere and it has to be true. I always play a lot more when I am sick and it helps me forget for a while. And Animal Crossing is very zen.

Feel better.
Animal Crossing is great.
Wii fit is good also.
I can not wait to get my wireless working so I can play everyone in Animal Crossing.
You will love the Wii.

For those of you who know this, I'm sure the rest of us must seem pretty dumb. I still have no idea what a Wii is! Oh, except it is the #1 computer game ever made.

The wii is NOT a computer game!

The wii is a Video Game Console made by nintendo - meaning it is a machine you put games in to play them - other major console brands are XBOX, playstation, sega....atari, commodore...

It plays discs in CD format, and is majorly different from other video game consoles. For example, the graphics are NOT cutting edge, yet the control system is VERY new. It uses a sensor on top of your tv to "trace" the movements of the controller - the Wii-mote (looks like a small TV remote!). So, while other game systems limit the ways you can use the controller (can only hold in standard position), the Wii mote can be held in different positions, shaken, flipped, swung like a bat/racket/golf club etc. This makes games like golf infinitely more fun, as you stand and "take a real shot"

Hope that helps a little

I've never seen a playstation or XBOX either, but at least I've heard of them. Anyway, I think I get the picture.

Sorry to hear you've had a rough time Sarah. You did deserve a wii!
post #17 of 25
for more information: Wii
my cousin has one, & her kids enjoy it. so did my nephew when we visited. i don't think i'd like it all that much - don't really care for video games, myself.
altho the Wii Fit add-on might be interesting...

My boyfriend gave me a wii but I play very rarely. He is into games and has every single system, but didn't like the wii so he gave it to me lol. I am not into games myself ...I play really old games on the wii like the original super mario brothers and just really old stuff that I used to play as a kid. All of the new games are so complicated and require too much time.

Honey, don't feel bad. I've heard of them, but have never actually used one. Heck, I have a hard time figuring out my cell phone, much less all the new things coming out!

Sarah, I'm glad you got your Wii, and enjoy it! You deserve it!

Aww, how sweet of Andrew to get that for you!

Eventually you'll get the Wii fit, and then I'll have to be jealous of you too!

Aww Sarah! *big hugs* You poor thing. I hope you're feeling better

Well i just found out the other day that mum wants a Wii fit, and i'm all excited about it now too! But we have to save for it, there's no way we'd for out $400 for the console and then more for the games in one go *sighs*

I'm glad you got your wii. I have a great time with it; whenever DH lets me have a fair turn! One thing I do like about it is that you can download some of the classics to it; like the original mario brother's games, donkey kong, etc.

My Mother in law was telling me recently that her mother in law (DH's step-father's mother) asked for and got one for her birthday and she's in her 80's. Apparently she likes the sports games! I can't picture my Grandparent's even trying to play one! Guess you really are never too old to try something new!
