so i actually got to play one the other day. I got to play excite truck and it was actually really responsive. I was expecting there to be some lag when you turned but it actually worked pretty well. Going over bumps and collecting power ups while the controller vibrated and made neat sounds felt really natural. Also while in the air, tilt the controller backwards and the nose will go up, tilt it forward and the nose will go down. If you hit the ground level you would get a nice boost. Flight sims would rock on this system.

I then checked out some of the other channels, and like how it advertised, it does come packed with the forcast, news and internet right out of the box. A neat little thing that they included is the hand on the screen you chose stuff with will turn upside down when you turn the controller upside down.

My only beefs is the placement of the buttons make it feel weird. like the 1 and 2 button are really far away from where your hand rests. Also you dont point it at the screen, you have to point it near the sensor, which at first was akward but i got used to it. the movement felt smoother than a light gun. With light gun games, im very shakey and it shows on the screen. With the wii it moved really well and didnt really shake all over the screen like i expected it too.

Even tho it was a kinda restricted demo, and i didnt even get to play the game i wanted. It was pretty neat to get some hands on time with the system.

Im gonna get one as soon as i can.

about 90% of their 'wii experience' videos feature only women. I wonder if that's supposed to be part of their market segmentation strategy or if they're going 'LOOK FELLAS EVEN RETARDS CAN USE IT.'

I played a Wii yesterday. And it was real good. I liked it.

The controller doesn't really 'shock and awe', it just feels very natural and you could forget it's even there, which is right where I think Nintendo needs to be - It needs to be the Wii that is the successful instrument, not its peripherals. Using the pointer feels better than I thought it would - all your natural jitters are smoothed out by the software and the controller vibrates a lil when you mouse over each option, creating a very solid feel. Even using the onscreen keyboard (to name my Mii) was way less awkward than with an analog or digital stick.

The excitetruck demo felt like pretty much any arcade racing game, with ridiculous jumps and powerups and simple controls. Steering seemed a little too sensitive, but I imagine you can adjust the sensitivity in the game on your home system.

It's a good system with lots of potential. Hopefully, enough developers will rise to the occasion and make innovative games for the system, rather than using the new technology as an afterthought as is the case in so many DS games.

Cookin Mama is secks

I did what you're saying, Chojin. Alot of developers simply saw the DS as another Gameboy, and didn't use things like Wifi and the top screen to its advantage. I enjoyed fighting two fronts in Advance Wars, and Phoenix Wright used it well too. I'm afraid alot of developers are gonna see the Wii as another Gamecube, and since the hardware isn't that far removed, it's easy to fall into that trap.

I've got high hopes for the Revolution. Prince and the Revolution was amazing, I think this can be too. This new generation of gamers are too focused on graphics, and forget that innovation and other things come first. I'm not worried that Zelda doesn't have top notch graphics, I won't be worried that every bead of sweat won't be rendered on Link's face. When OoT came out, the graphics weren't that good, but it's possibly the best of the series.

I'm really confused as to why all the Wii kiosks have Excitetruck and not Wii Sports. It seems like a no-brainer.

I think it might have something to do with Nintendo's fear of being liable for injuries resulting from people flailing around in the middle of a Wal-mart electronics section.

Emily reports that Annapolis Mall now has 6 Wii Kiosks surrounding the information desk in the middle of the mall, all loaded with Wii Sports Tennis.

Now that's how you promote a user-friendly god-damn-befucking system. Brilliant move on Nintendo's part.

acts as a reference point for the remote, so it knows where it is 'in space' by triangulating the points on the sensor bar when it can see it

Annapolis Mall's line at launch day





MANY A DS TO BE FOUND



8 people were in the game previously, but this is 6-man mario kart. I tried to make the image a lil more viewable ;<



For those of you wondering, here's how you hook gamecube controllers into the Wii. The white space behind it also flips up to hold the GC memory cards. Regardless, it makes the system look ugly so I avoid it ;<

Thanksgiving at Emily's aunt's house!




The kids play tennis and some non-gamers get involved EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY





IT'S ADULT BOWL, GUYS. Not pictured: Emily's mom's victory dances



AND IT'S A BURNER OF A FASTBALL



BUT OH, OH, IT'S THE LEGENDARY PITCH, THE BLUE STREAK.



awwww
