wii

On saturday, I tried out my friend's new Nintendo Wii. It was pretty fun. The controllers, which have you actually duplicating the motions of your in-game actions (such as throwing a punch or swinging a golf club), give you quite a workout. At least until you realize you can get the same results with far less exuberant motions. The first thing you do is create a cartoony avatar, which then permanently populates the game system and infects the systems of people you play with online, until eventually you've playing baseball against a team made up of Hitler, Einstein, and all buddies and their girlfriends. I have to say, I enjoyed the boxing game so much more because I was beating up Jesus. Cathartic is how I would have to describe that one. Mucho cathartic.
