I got a Wii for Christmas! I just couldn't believe it when I opened the wrapping. It was from Simon, who I'd been telling about for months now, suggesting that he might even be interested in playing despite not being interested in games on consoles or computers.

I couldn't wait and had to set it up immediately and it came with everything in the box, including Wii Sports, a collection of sport games that show off the use of the Wii's innovative remote/controller. We went off to the Grampians the next day and I brought the Wii along and we had a few sessions at the cabin we stayed at. I went shopping yesterday and picked up a few games and another Wii Remote. I got Zelda: Twilight Princess, Rayman Raving Rabbids and the Wii Play bundle with a Wii Remote.

The games are all fab and brilliant use of the controller. It just feels very natural and easy to pick up. We had dinner with some friends last night, and everybody came over to mine and played on the Wii for a while. It was hilarious! Everybody was getting quite into it, even the ones who would not normally be interested in games.

My Wii Number is 7379 8788 7464 8405 if anybody else has one and wants to send messages through the Wii message board function, or whatever online features Nintendo decides to come out with. Send me an email with your number if you decide to add me so I can add you on mine too.
