I heart the Nintendo Wii. I got to play it last night for the first time and it is SO MUCH FUN. Not only were WiiSports a good time (well, we only tried tennis and bowling, but both were awesomely fun and I can’t wait to try boxing), but I can even get in to games like Zelda because you get to go slashy-slashy and stabby-stabby with your little controllers, and Grant was showing me how you can cast your fishing rod, etc. Awesome. And we played Trauma Center: Second Opinion, and can I tell you, it satisfies that morbid part of me that is fascinated with injury and medicine and surgery? I got to suture lacerations and drain and excise tumors and Grant got to pull glass out of wounds. DUDE! I like being a fake doctor. Oh, and for some of the games you create yourself a little avatar called a Mii, and it’s so cute and funny to see little Grant and Virginia Miis – surprisingly accurate, thanks to Grant’s handiwork, I might add. And every time you use the remote to point at a button, it makes a little vibratey-movement when you’re correctly targeting it. Like a delightful little bunny rabbit in your hand, shivering in gamey joy. Yes, exactly like that. I LOVE THE WII!
