So I walk into one of the many local blockbusters Friday evening to return Dark Sector (finally, after 3 rentals) and what do I see? A brand new Nintendo Wii for sale. Of course my first reaction was to ask the dude behind the counter if they actually had one or if this was some sort of deception. He told me they had 1 or 2 remaining. (lies im sure) I immediately walk over to the Wii section to see what I would actually play if I bought this thing. First thing that jumps out is this “brawl” game I keep hearing about then I see Mario Galaxy out of the corner of my eye. I was sold. I decided I would rent them both along with my new purchase.
I was a little unsure how I would feel about these games for 2 reasons.
1) I have not had a Nintendo console since the NES and
2) I typically enjoy violent life like games such as COD4 and r6v2.
However, I couldn’t resist and was confident that Mario would be as great today as it was back in my younger days.
I was right. Mario Galaxy has given me feelings no 360 game has yet and is as fun as Mario 1, 2, and 3 was when I first played them. The game is genuinely fun! Imagine that. I bought a copy of Resident Evil 4 as well since I missed it on the GC and ps2 and have been eager to try it. I had a wonderful Wii-kend (see what I did there?) and am so excited that I got my hands on one! I think I will pick up Okami and No More Heroes soon. I also have to check out Twilight Princess (haven’t played Zelda since the sequel on the NES and Metroid Prime (haven’t played Metroid since the Original).
Any ideas or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
oh, and the best part? Chicks dig it!
