Its like,… 3 years since Wii launch. November 6th(?), 2006. I slept and sat outside of Zellers for 23 hours before launch. Below is a picture from that fateful day. Lindsey, myself and Charles who came out for fun to sit and wait for Zellers to open on launch day.
I’ve played many many games on it, finished a number of Zeldas, currently playing Wind Waker which is actually a gamecube game. I have 4 Wiimotes, 1 virtual controller, a pistol accessory, 2 nun-chucks, lots of rechargeable batteries and about 12 REAL games, ie dvd ones, and like 15 Wiiware / Virtual console games. Nintendo has gotten good money out of me! I love it though and have lots of fun with it. Great party game and the Zeldas are great. Increasingly the Wiiware games are of high calibre too.
So far I can report zero problems with the unit (unlike 360s having to be sent back.) I’ve never had to replace a Wiimote or anythings, it all just works. Now… I wish I had a HD widescreen TV to actually use the 480p, That would be ideal! Maybe next year… Our ‘old’ 32 inch is still kicking, I bought it maybe 5 years ago in Fort Smith, from Sears I guess. It does have a colour spot on it occasionally so the tube is showing signs of age but still serves its purpose, especially when our TV consists of 2 snowy rabbit ear channels!
On the green side of things, because the TV and Wii suck power even when off, I have a timer set on it. It turns off all Tvs, Wiis, DVD player etc during night to save power, it does a great job actually!
Lindsey last completed Lost Winds, 1 AND 2 that just came out. I have yet to complete 2.
