Review Of Wii Chess

Posted on 5th June 2008 by admin in Game Reviews

Nintendo of America, Inc. is really getting fancy on us now! They’ve come out with a chess game-woo hoo! Ok, all sarcasm aside, it is a bit surprising that the company who is largely responsible for the existence of a video gaming industry in the first place would come out with something this simple, this late in the game (pun intended, of course).
But if you look back at Nintendo’s legacy (and that means acknowledging where they have been as well as where they are now), you’ll see a company that has come full circle, yet always stayed true to their original vision. Undoubtedly, their goal for consoles back in the early 80’s with the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was to build game systems aimed at families. The concept behind building these (and the accompanying games) was also to create entertainment universally appealing to various age groups.

What is wrong with Mii? In case the caves you hide in don’t yet have a Wii and you are not yet aware: Mii-pronounced “Mee”-is something which on other games and machines is often known as an “avatar” or “toon.” On the Wii, this is called a Mii and represents each player on the Nintendo Wii Console.

Well, to answer the question in the first sentence would take entirely too long! In reality, nothing is wrong but there are some new downloadable updates on the Wii Shop Channel you may have missed.
When creating your Mii, you get to decide every feature of your face and more such as the size of your eyes, nose, smile, and so on. This may make you feel a bit like that “big bad wolf” preparing for a visit from the grandmother-visiting girl in the red hood who tends to ask too many questions! But, if you are like me, you find it rather enjoyable to peruse the extensive selection of attributes to find “just the right combination” for the perfect Mii for the situation. (more…)

Believe it or not, the Wii is the best…

We like the Wii because of the unique “wireless” controller function and because of the unique gaming experience. But believe it or not there a still some people thing that other gaming consoles are better. Check this commercial and learn why the Wii is the best ;D
