Did anyone else get a Wii ?

Happy Holidays guys !!!

My wife got me a Nintendo Wii for Christmas and I've been having a lot of fun with it. Just an all round bigger fun factor than normal consoles.
I was wondering if anyone else got one and what they think of it ?

I'm glad they went back to the old-style graphics in this Zelda. I was never a fan of the "cutesy" 2d look that Windwaker had on the Gamecube. I just think it ruined it slightly. For me anyways.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the N64 is one of my all-time favourite games ever.

I thought about getting a Wii, but I'm just gonna save my money for a PS3. Final Fantasy XIII looks like it's gonna be the sheet!

Re: Did anyone else get a Wii ?

Is it really worth buying a Wii now when it can't play DVD's etc. and they will fix in March first.

Regards

André

Surely you've already got a DVD player havn't you ?

We had a Wii Sports Party the other night round mine and I've never seen video games make grown men so childish. Beer and Wii Baseball is killer!

Re: Did anyone else get a Wii ?

i wonder if they slowed/curbed Wii manufactured/shipments at this time to the USA, as none are available (my nephew picked one up at launch) and due to the strap recalll, xmas season over, dvd unplayability and PS3 debacle they seem to be in no hurry to supply more. very, very strange how they had a ton available a month ago and none a month later.

but the Wii is something to wait on without a doubt as you're getting nickled and dimed for everything with a few parlor games that you can get at the mall for $19.99 (tennis, pong, bowling, etc.). $8 genesis and turbografx games "virtual console" ROTFLMAO. they were playing "rayman" over xmas and it was dreadful on a HDTV. $250 for a bowling game is tough to stomach.

they were actually facing away from the TV and bowling (throwing motion towards the wall) and getting "strikes" ROTFLMAO.... glen

Re: Did anyone else get a Wii ?

My friend got one for Christmas, a group of us had a bit of a drinking session and played some Wii sports.

I'm not a big games player, and obviously the graphics (on the Wii sports game at least) are not great, it was a lot of fun - to the point that I would actually consider buying one when they're widely available at a decent price. Everywhere is sold out here in the UK, they're on sale on E-bay for way in excess of £300 right now.
