Wii Launch


Playing Wii Sports: Golf I think Nintendo is poised to make a lot of money. The Wii may not be winning prizes very soon for HD graphics, but it has in spades the number one thing people look for in a game: fun. I have never played anything quite like it. If you take a look at the pictures, you can see that my hand position tracks with the golfer on the screen. The Wii can be played exactly as you would do something intuitively. Swinging a golf club is very much what it would be like in real life. I played a round of 3 with Matt, handily beating him by scoring at par. I lost a game of baseball, however. I think that console is #1 on my wish list for this Christmas, definitely. But more than that, I think I could play many of these games with my mom, which I could never have said before. In other news, I went and saw The Prestige on Friday night, and really enjoyed it. Christian Bale, Michael Cane, and Hugh Jackman made a great cast. The movie had a few things that bugged me, but it is definitely one worth seeing. It centers on two illusionists from the early 20th century in England, and a war between Tesla and Edison. The theater was full of rowdy teenagers, so I got a lousy seat, but it was still worth it I think.
