Wii – just how damn good is this thing

Got the Wii going on Friday and have been dipping in and out over the weekend. Note that unlike other Warwick Bloggers and being married/over the age of 30 I have not been able to spend every waking minute on the thing – I had to polish the floors you know… :-(

Anyway, it’s immediately obvious just how good this thing is. Apart from the fact that the controller is simply fantastic to use and just works, damn it, the ease with which non-gamers picked up the technique and got right into the games was great. It’s just what Nintendo had in mind – opening up gaming to non-hardcore gamers. I think my dad will love it.

Both Steph and I ended up wacking tennis balls as if we were on a real court – you can’t stop yourself literally throwing yourself into the games.

The Wii looks like it will become a staple part of vaguely drunken evenings for years to come – hooray!

In other news, just how much did Nicole Cooke have a chip on her shoulder – during the interview with Adrian Childs on Sports Personality it seemed she had the usual cyclist angst about ‘why does no-one appreciate how tough our sport is’. To do what she has done is bloody tough and you should ready Lance Armstrongs books to get an idea of just how hard winning major cycling races is. There just seems to be a bit of an inferiority complex – why?

Learning is fun

Writing about web page http://www.boingboing.net/2005/10/19/boardgame_based_on_c.html

A board (bored?) game based on the C programming language – see, learning can be fun.

Perhaps we should have WarwickBlogs – the Board Game.

Now, I bet Hannah could come with a cracking design for that…
