I’ve been Wii’d

wiiWoot! I finally got my hands on a Wii, and I must say, I’m enjoying the heck out of it. Nintendo has completely revolutionized living room gaming with this thing.

I’ve got a lot to say about the interface and the control system (short form: they ROCK) but for now I just need Wii friends. Anyone out there wanna be my Wii buddy? If so, I’m:

By the way, don’t waste your money on the “Wii Play” game unless you buy it specifically for the spare remote. We were terribly disappointed in it. However, we now have three remotes and two nunchuks!

Can’t wait to see all your Miis!

Jason – we JUST got around to adding you to our Wii. Make sure you add us (Wii number above) and we can exchange Miis and such.
Sorry for the delay. Life got in the way of the Wii for a while …
