Still Waiting For A Wii?
Anybody out there still trying to get a Wii?
My brother recently got a Wii. We mailed him all our extra games (Madden, Red Steel, and the rest of a big pile of games I had to buy in a bundle to get my Wii), so he is all set for gaming fun.
But he will have to buy his own copy of Zelda. We have been playing that game for about 100 hours (with the help of the hint book) and we are still not done. It is like watching the Fellowship of the Ring trilogy ten times over.
Zelda Twilight Princess is a good game. We sort of play it as a team, reading tips out of the hint book to each other, and the kids are very into the characters. Last weekend the kids xeroxed hintbook pages to make paper cutouts of Link, Zelda, Midna, Colin, Beth, Malo, Talo, Russel, and Zant. Why not? Just as fun as playing Gandalf and Frodo.
And the minigames.... Have any Zelda players out there beat RoalGoal yet?
So my brother got his Wii. But they still don't seem very easy to get. To get his, he had to visit several K-Marts early in the morning. I wondered if it would be possible to buy one "the normal way," so I visited EBGames the other day.
"No we don't have any. No Wii's. Come back in April."
I find this remarkable. It is three months past Christmas. The unobtainable Christmas hot-item TMX Elmo is easy to get. Yet the Wii is still absent everywhere.Posted by David at March 17, 2007 08:41 AM
