OT- Nintendo Wii
I just got a Nintendo Wii with Zelda-Twilight, Madden (will sell that or let my BF play it) and more games and other extras on ebay for a very good price. I am so excited to play it. Ok, my nintendo love has now been exposed for all the knitting world to see but I DON'T CARE. The Wii is the best video game system and is such a complete upgrade from my GameCube. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I watched my 40-something friend demonstrate the tennis game after Christmas. Her hubby bought it, supposedly, for their daughter. Yeah...right...

Just be careful not to throw the controllers into the TV.

I called my friend last night, and he told me his roommate "was performing surgery on the Wii."

"Why? Did it break?"

"No, he's performing surgery. On the Wii. It's a game."

"...that's awesome."

We have one. My inlaws ask us to bring it every time we come over.

I've been knitting too much to play lately...

Trauma Center. It is a awesome game.

my Dh was one of the geeks who stood in line all night long so he could get one on the Launch day back on November. He still brags to his geek friends that he was #12 in line. he's a weirdo.

Gald to see others love the Wii as well!
I should have pre-ordered one. I am a Nintendo fanatic. I have a DS, a GameCube and a Super Nintendo. I am excited to check out all the games.

The person playing the surgery game has Nintendo, Japanese Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Japanese Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, GameCube, the Wii, and a Playstation 2. Talk about hardcore gamers.

I'm not sure about Gameboys and/or the DS.

you think that's bad, my husband is a gaming fanatic. I didn't let him get a wii until february for his birthday, and yet, he doesn't play it that much. Wii sports gets boring pretty quick. He doesn't have twilight princess for it yet, which is probably why he hasn't been playing it recently. In our house we have a playstation, playstation II, Xbox, Wii, sega dreamcast, and gameboy advance sp. The xbox is modded so it has emulators and all the games for nintendo, super nintendo, nintendo 64, turbo graphix 16, sega genisis, a ton of arcade games, and I'm sure I'm missing another couple systems there. We've got plenty of video games in this house!

I got my Wii today and it is everything I could have hoped for and more. This will be a major distraction from studying and knitting for a while.
