Impulse buy

The weekend saw us in town for a bit of shopping. It resulted in one very exciting impulse buy, which subsequently had an affect on the rest of the weekend…a Nintendo Wii. It’s fantastic.  I had a recommendation for one a while ago from J at Weight Watchers and then played on one before Christmas…

We bought a Wii with Guitar Hero III – which is just great. The real star of the show has to be Wii sports – just for the variety it brings to all who play it. Saturday night we had a party (of sorts) – and with people ranging from their early thirties right into their sixties, it was a varied group. Most people joined in and played some variation of the games, whether Wii Sports, or Mario Olypmics. The intention had not been to play all evening, but as people arrived, there was a lot of enthusiasm for playing the games…and a queue formed.

I was one of the people who laughed at the BBC’s Declan playing on the new Wii Fit game (due for release 25 April) – but I’m going to be one of the first to buy it. I can only imagine it’s a bit of good fun. Whether it’s really any good for keeping you fit, I don’t know. What I can say is that having played, tennis, baseball and boxing over the weekend, I have very, very sore muscles in my arms today.

I talked about overkill the other day…well, between us we have an old PS1, a PS2, two PSPs, an XBox 360 and a Wii…
