About Nothing Much...

SO...I have a Wii. :ponder:

 

First time I've had a "modern" console since the N64 in 2001. Kind of weird, really - my brother-in-law gave it to me (!) plus ~5 games. Wasn't really sure what to do at first; I'd already decided that I wasn't buying any more hardware for the foreseeable future - I had/have too many systems and not enough games and not enough time for the ones I have.

 

But anyway, eventually hooked the thing up and I've been having fun with Wii Sports, Super Mario Galaxy. Also realized that it will play GameCube games last night so I can probably put away the GameCube, saving some space. So that's nice.

 

In other video game news, my dad was going to try to fix my broken Snow Bros. cabinet as a birthday present, and he did! Pretty cool, though I haven't seen it in action yet - still at their house. Good times! :)

 

So that's what's up with me; not a lot of time for programming lately, too many good games to play. :D

Excellent news! The GC backward compatibility is a blast, that's how I'm enjoying Resident Evil right now :cool:

 

Make sure to get it online, that seems to enhance the fun for me. The extra channels not so much, but I find myself downloading VC and WiiWare games frequently. I prefer especially playing N64 titles on the VC, there it seems to give me fewer headaches and motion sickness problems than the original N64 3D rendering.

 

It's also fun to verify my Geometry Wars Galaxies ranking, I'm around #400 already :(

By "modern" I meant a console that was the newest thing from that people that make it - I was given the GameCube after the release of the Wii - actually, I was given it because the guy that had it got a Wii.

 

Make sure to get it online

Well, I have dial-up at home - can I get online with the Wii through dial-up? :cool:
