I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.


So last night I had the plea­sure of play­ing on a Wii. Man they are so fun! And I mean REALLY fun! It suc­cess­ful­ly put some­thing back into play­ing com­put­er games that I have felt has been miss­ing for a while now. Yep you guessed it that 3 let­ter word, fun.
At Uni, the guys here tend to chill out togeth­er with the PS2 and Pro Evo 6 but recent­ly I’ve not been enjoy­ing it so much. The fun has left the game to a cer­tain extent, and has been replaced with com­pe­ti­tion. Now a cer­tain amount of com­pe­ti­tion is good and healthy, but when it gets to the extent it is on Evo now, the fun just van­ish­es and it gets personal.
Now the Wii, was just fun. We only had 2 Wiimotes, but boy was it fun. We were box­ing, play­ing ten­nis, base­ball, rac­ing cows, great fun. The girls were join­ing in as well, where­as nor­mal­ly when the con­sole goes on they all van­ish from the room by half time of the first game. This time we had Sarah play­ing golf, Jen box­ing, and every­one laugh­ing, just great fun. Basi­cal­ly these things are liv­ing up to the hype, it will depend what sin­gle play­er usage you can get out of it, but the Wii is gonna be huge. Whats worse is I now have two things I’m sav­ing up for, a Wii and an iPhone!

  1. Wow! I don’t think I have seen the word “fun” writ­ten so much in a blog post 😛 It must be good! Lol.
    I think you are spot on say­ing it has put some­thing back into com­put­er games which was miss­ing. I think it adds more user inter­ac­tiv­i­ty, per­haps stat­ing the obvi­ous but it is true. It allows you to get more involved with the game itself.
    I do think they’re great con­soles how­ev­er I can’t see myself buy­ing one pure­ly because I am not that inter­est­ed in game con­soles any­more. I have a PS2 and the only game I play on it is Pro Evo 6; the best foot­ball game EVER!
    You are going to have an expen­sive year by the sounds of it! A Wii and an iPhone. Wow! Expen­sive — But 2 great products!
    The only thing I am sav­ing up for is anoth­er sea­son tick­et (for Mid­dles­brough) for next season…
