Wiis release me

So I finally bought a Wii. I realise that everyone else got theirs two years ago so I’m a bit late to the party, so forgive me if I wax lyrical about stuff that everyone else already knows.

First impressions: I love it! The motion control is marvellous and used to great effect in the bundled games (Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort) are great fun. New Super Mario Bros. Wii is an amazing game, taking the classic Mario formula and adding a really enjoyable multiplayer mode. I’m looking forward to building up my catalogue of games.

The Wii is the console that might get me back to gaming full time. The last full console I owned (as opposed to a handheld) was a SNES. For some reason when the consoles went 3D, I lost interest. That, and I had no money. Me and video games went our separate ways, until now.

Still haven’t tried the Virtual Console feature, but I will do soon — I really fancy playing Pilotwings again.
