    I tried the snowboarding and I *totally* suck at it.  My hubbie is actually really good at it, but then again I am the one that needs the Wii Fit not him Tongue out Also, it is a pain to go throught all the body measurement stuff…which is why my hubbie did it and then I just use his profile!

    Thanks. I try my best! I don’t see why they have to make console exclusive games. Such as Halo. I really want to play Halo 3… I have Fallout 3 for PS3 but it’s shit. Keeps stalling and corrupting save files, a huge pain in the ass.

    each time you try to put on a little speed, you end up careening off in the wrong direction, over correcting, and slowing down anyway… I think you really have to spend some time on it to not look foolish.  If your hubbie can get some good time (silver or gold) then kudos! Laughing

    But as far as I’m concerned, looking foolish is half the fun of Wii Fit.  I love bringing out the Soccer ‘head ball’ game during parties.  Absolutely histerical. :-)  The only problem is that you cant just ‘jump on’ to the Fit… you have to go through the whole body measurement process, and it can be a buzz kill if all you’re trying to do is see some funnies.

    Avatar of Gmork

    My hubbie was tenacious and stalked several stores for 2 weeks to get one. Although he had no altrustic motives…I thought he bought it for me but he actually bought it for himself!  There’s a pretty cool snowboarding game he plays on it.

    I really wish I had the time to go to Bonnaroo.  For starters, Phish is playing two shows, that in itself is worth the ticket.  But alas, I dont think its in the card this year.

    Avatar of Renee Jordan

    I mean, I’ve heard of them, even seen a few grainy out-of-focus pictures, but I’ve never actually seen one. Kinda like Bigfoot, ya know?

    Seriously, I’ve been looking since they came out and have NEVER seen one in a store. Apparently they all sell out exactly five minutes before the stores even get them.

    Infamous, which is pretty good. Finished Resi 5, PS3, which is EXCELLENT, but not quite as good as 4. Still sort of play it online. Dead Space PC, Half Life: The Orange Box, redoing FF7 and MGS on PS1 emulator. And i’m using the PS3 controller for Dead Space btwTongue out

    Oh yeah and waiting for Final Fantasy XIII.

    I freely admit that the first CD that I owned was The Moody Blues, and I’m proud to say that I own every Rush album ever created… and my fav album ever is Quadrophenia.

    However, you can add Muse to that, and a couple of New Pornographers albums, Tool, System of a Down, and Vampire Weekend to name a few.

    And I own a Wii (got it up on blocks at the moment), a PS2, a PS, and yes, I still have my Sega Genesis.

    And so, so sum it up: Old just means I have aquired more crap than you have… but lots of that crap is probably the same crap you have. :-)

    Left for Dead (xbox 360)– Zombie apocolypse, who wouldn’t love this game!

    MGS 4 (Playstation 3) — but I still pine for the original MGS, when Solid Snake was hot.

    Wii Fit — which is currently collecting dust *sigh*

    Didn’t mean to do that.  Indeed, some video games are education and build skills that are handy in the real world.  I guess when I think of video games I tend to think of things like Grand Theft Auto!  But I do like to do things like crossword puzzles and sudoku on-line!

    stopped reading the discs.  it would pull them into the drive but had problems reading it.  so I took it apart to see if I could see what the dealio was.  interesting part is that Nintendo uses screws with a tri-wing head so I had to buy special screwdrivers on ebay just to take the thing apart.  good times.

    Video games have an interactive quality books can’t provide.  However, I agree that books are better on the whole, somtimes shooting aliens is so much fun you can’t stop!

    c’mon, video games are the new literacy. They offer a new common dialog for youth, and can even span the generational gap better than most forms of entertainment. Some great games are actually educational and help build skills like executive decision making, knowledge of history, math, language, and economic skills.

    Yeah, some are crap, but I wouldn’t dismiss all books because of hate literature. Video games aren’t for everyone but they certainly aren’t a waste of time. I, for one, can’t wait until the Rookie gets it’s own video game.

    I haven’t tried Railroads. That might be a good title to get for the library.

    Avatar of Donald Dennis

    I understand it not catching you. I’ve quit it several times before, twice after playing it for less than a month.

    As a game it merely ‘doesn’t suck’. It’s strengths are the social aspects – it’s like a hybrid between a dungon crawl and a chat room.

    I like it because it has sweeping vistas and a nicely executed fantasy theme, but I only really keep playing because my friends (and wife) are playing.

    My Wii is in pieces at the moment while I’m in the process of ordering a new DVD drive…  Otherwise it’d be Guitar Hero World Tour.
