Yesterday Game Crazy called and said my Wii had come in. I decided I would take my lunch and go pick it up. When I got home around 5:30 I ran to the basement like a 13-Year-Old kid and quickly began unboxing the Wii. Within minutes I had it set up with the sensor bar on top of our 50″ DLP TV. I also purchased Elebits but never made it passed WiiSports. Although I’ve played the WiiSports at MicroCenter and POI’s house, I really enjoyed playing it in the comfort of my own home. So maybe I’ll get to Elebits later this week.

The Wii is fantastic! (As many of you who have them already know) I had a lot of fun creating my own Mii. When I finally coaxed Heather down to play the Wii she also enjoyed setting up her own Mii. Miis are the characters you use when you play different games. They are also portable. You can transfer your Mii to the WiiMote and take them to friend’s houses to play your character at their home.

Wii Bowled!

I can’t wait until Wii Play comes out on the 12th. It comes with an extra WiiMote and several new sports type games including Pool, Ping Pong and Duck Hunt.

*UPDATE: I pre-ordered WiiPlay.

Conan the Game

“Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures’, winner of multiple E3 awards as the best game in its genre and one of the most anticipated PC games currently in development, is an Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO) set in the fantastic Conan universe as created by Robert E. Howard. In ‘Conan’ the players will encounter a brutal, lush, violent and sinful universe, presented in fantastic graphics and stunning 7.1 surround audio. “

I’d buy that for a dollar! OK, it’ll be fifty and I probably won’t but it’s the most appealing MMO to me so far. I just don’t want to pay anything beyond the game so they’ll never get me do buy it if the game requires monthly dues.

Someone has come up with a homemade Windows driver for the Wiimote. Now all you need are some PC games to take advantage of it.

Then there is the Wii Laptop. Really cool for the Wii user on the go.

We’ve been experiencing some issues with slow performance as a customer of BlueHost but this evening they announced they have improved speed by 100-300% in some cases. We’ll see. Anyway, we don’t notice it much here but I thought I’d share.
