On Saturday, a friend introduced me to the joys of the Nintendo Wii (pronounced "Wee").
And on Sunday... I found myself all the way at Sungai Wang... and coming home with.....
I couldn't help it... the Wii experience is just totally out of this world.
Let me bring you in on a little bit of what it's like in a minute.
First... the UNPACKING.
I normally hate installing stuff like this but the Wii has made it so easy... excellent for people like me who never read instruction manuals.
After just a few minutes of installation and plugging it into the TV...
The most fun part of the Wii is this.
Now I never was the kind to play game consoles because I never got used to the controllers.
But the Wii is so simple. The controller is shaped to be like a TV remote so it doesn't look out of place when you have it on your living room table and there are only a few buttons on it.
The real action of the remote comes from waving it around.
For example, if you're playing a game of tennis.
Then you hold and swing your Wii Remote just like how you would do for a real tennis racket.
If you're playing golf, you do the same.
Or even if you're bowling, you hold the remote and swing like you're swinging a real bowling ball.
It is sooo cool..
Oh and there is one more thing cool about the Wii.
And it's not just that it looks cool.
It's the Mii!!!
Miis are your own personalized characters that you use to play the games.
You can customize your own Mii.
First deciding of course whether it's a guy Mii or a girl Mii.
And no guys...unlike games like WoW, it doesn't help pretending to be a female character since the person you're playing with is going to be right next to you.
You won't be getting any special treatment.
Then, once you select your gender.
You can go ahead and customize your Mii to have it look like you or like anyone else.
Here's my Mii.
Look just like me or not?
Ming, I'm seriously considering getting one for at least one of our offices.
