Just got back from getting 2. Got scary for a bit there, the Walmart that was supposed to get 60 got 28. I was forced to hang on to my 11 year old in a sea of people as the line broke down when the Walmart employees just opened a warehouse sized door and said "come in".
Updating the Wii now...
Picked the country then another update...
WTH is up with that crappy speaker!
TENNIS! I will pay any price for a real Tennis game!
We're pretty short on downloadable titles.
Oh and this thing is BLURRY on a 50" plasma using composite, but the store did not have component
AI for Tennis is dumb as a post at times. My back court guy is OK but the front court player is nearly useless. They do not get in position very well at all, leaving you to take shots from the back court you would have done better to do up front.
My son just loved Baseball but IMO its the dumbest thing on the disk. The delay is most noticable and it actually effects gameplay...
Bowling is a ton of fun. Its SO close ot being a complete game and really works well!
Boxing makes me want to cry
The nunchuck is fine. Every time I swing with it I throw a punch. The Wiimote however... its like my arm is broken. Most of the time its not swinging. I am sure this has something to do with my room or sensor bar placmenet (Thought its fine for eveyrthing else) but its REALLy unresponsive for punches. (Fine for blocking!) The cord is a PITA in this game too. They REALL TRULY need a wireless nunchuck as punching and blocking has the cord flying up infront of your face. Maybe games can support two Wiimotes for one player? That would solve the cord problem.
Wiimote: COOL AS HELL! However... it gets jumpy at the edges of my 16:9 screen. Seems rock solid in the middle but as you get aways from it the hand (looks like its wearing MM's glove) actually shakes onscreen. Does not seem to effect Wiisports but I am concerned about CoD3.
OOPs sleepy 4 year old walked behind me during Tennis. Wife says: "You Wii-wacked her".
Going to bed now, son will be up ALL night with this. Hope you all get one!
Keyboard: Not detected in Mii creation or Store. I did not work on this at all, just plugged in a USB KB and it was not detected (I have not slept in many hours).
Working through the menus is very simple with the Wiimote so not a big deal for setup.
Bought 5K Wii-points, charged me TAX. Damn Nintendo TAX does not need to be charged to NY residents for internet purchases in most cases!
Seems I have 2,161 blocks on my internal memory. Downloaded Solomon's Key, it was 93 blocks.
When you go to buy a game it appears there is no demo. It tells you on two screens exactly what controllers can be used for the game. Mario then proceeded to collect my 500 coins and we now have a Nintendo Entertainment System Channel. Worth mentioning this game cost as much as the Techmo Classics disk on XBox did at Ebgames and that hade 5 other games as well as Solomon's key. I will certainly ONLY be buying my absolute favorites on NES. I must be missing somehing but I cannot find a way to play NES games in a 4:3 windows. SK is S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D when being played. I may need to read the manual...
It included system state saves for thegames which is a very nice feature for these old games that in many cases used passwords.
I'll get flammed in the Sony forum but as much fun as R:FoM was... after an hour its a FPS that is not as good as XBox games I have. I played Tennis for longer than I played R:FoM and Bowling is getting close....
I need to really sit down with CoD3 and Zelda more but so far I think the Wii is going to be a must buy for Wii games, not Zelda but games that use the Wiimote in ways that definatively say "You must have this tool to enjoy the game".
While playing Zelda (Especially during combat) you just know in the back of your head... OOT played better with the N64 controller than this...
Then you put in Wiisports and you know what the future of the Wii is. Kudos for whomever packed that in!
