...So anyway, I'm not quite sure how it happened. Either I saved a whole bunch of money this year buying my gifts at the flea market and yard sales or returned all of the clothing that I had supposedly grown back into and was no where close to fitting me yet (Sorry, Mom and Sister) that I am now the proud owner of my very own Wii gaming system.
Of course, I couldn't figure out how to set it up; I had to call Friend over to do that. I was somewhat helpful; I did get to clean under the television stand and hold the flashlight.
The first thing I noticed about the controller was that there was only two or three buttons that had to be mashed. And most games that I have played so far you just have to swing your arm in the direction you want the ball/object to go.
Talk about easy.
Talk about realistic.
I'm so hooked on the bowling game that I threw my back out and had to spend two days on the heating pad with my feet propped up.
Personally, I think the damn thing is too realistic. Do you know why? I'm left-handed and I have a hook on my ball that even Earl Weaver would be proud of. So much so that when I do venture out to a bowling alley I bowl right-handed.
One can only stand so many gutter balls.
Would you believe the Wii copies my hook? Exactly. The ball starts on the left side of the lane and by the time it reaches the pins has crossed to the right side and rolls into the gutter.
I guess once my back gets better, I'll switch to something else. Maybe something that won't result in bodily injury or bedrest.
