Still Waiting For A Wii?

Midna is our favoriteAnybody 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.

We stopped by Target the other day. The salesman said they got a shipment of a dozen of them just before he left for lunch. When he came back from his lunch hour, the first thing he did was sell the last one.

Still no Wii :-( They get sold out within a hour or two of delivery for most of the local stores.

Well, somw Wii's came into best buy{back when I liked Pokemon, I bought something there that glitched my game} but when I went to get one at ten o'clock am, some girl was on the floor screaming and crying that her mother hated her for not buying her a Wii, and when I tried to take the last Wii off the shelf, a little boy grabbed it out of my hands and ran off. So, no Wii for me.
