Using Facebook to Share Friend Codes

Yesterday, I decided to download the Worms 2: Open Warfare demo for the DS (from the Wii’s Nintendo Channel).  Worms 2 was release in September 2007.  This is the second game I’ve downloaded from this channel that I am now considering buying.  Overall, it is really fun and addicting.  If you are used to the older computer games such as […]

Diet.com Tries Wii Fit

In my opinion, this lady needs to try the entire game.  Some of her opinions, I do not agree with.  For instance, breathing technique is explained (in the deep breathing exercise).  Also, did she not read the many instructions that say to NOT wear shoes?

Sweet (But EVIL) Mario Kart Shortcut

Part of me cannot believe I am passing this on to you.  Maybe some of you have seen this already.  (Obviously some have.) So far, I’ve gotten 45.541 seconds.  I’m far off from the worldwide leader (at 21.732), though.  Have any of you tried it?  If so, how fast?  And what character(s) are you using?  I’ve used Daisy (because that’s […]

Wii Fit – My First Impressions

Wii Fit – My First Impressions

So, I’ve been going back and forth these last couple weeks on whether I should purchase Wii Fit.  Well, today I finally broke down and bought it.  After checking several places, I went to my local Toys-R-Us, where I saw 2 copies.  I quickly grabbed one and headed to the check-out line.  They offered me a 15 month protection plan, […]

Japan Getting Super Mario RPG for VC in June

Now even though some argue it is the greatest game of all time, I’ve got to admit that I’ve never played Super Mario RPG.  I know, I know!  But maybe I will soon get that chance again.  Many of you have been waiting for this game to be released on the Wii Virtual Console since launch day.  Well, if you […]
