A very video-gamey weekend

So, I'm not much of a video gamer. Well, if we disregard the weeks Fable stole from my life, and the weeks I fully intend to let Fable II steal. Either way, I'm perfectly content watching Eric kill stuff rather than killing stuff myself.

First came the Wii. Now, I was as skeptical as most folks, but we decided to give it a shot. I enjoyed it a great deal, and really liked having a video game that involved more movement than just the thumb-twitch. Then came the Wii Fit, which I've been enjoying far more than I thought I would. it's a sarcastic little machine, but it's a lot of fun.

Well, this weekend Eric and I took some unexpected good financial fortune and got a pair of DS Lites. We'd originally planned to just get one and see how we both liked it, but after just a couple of hours, Eric decided that he wanted one of his very own, too. :)

I'm not saying anything against the XBox 360, believe me - after all, that's the machine where we have my Worms games, and Lego Indiana Jones, which is just full of awesome. But still, I'm thinking that Nintendo owns a good chunk of my soul after the last few months.

For now, Eric's talking his father through new computer set-up (over the phone, fortunately) while we get caught up on stuff on the DVR. I think we're about two weeks behind on Raw, Smackdown, and TNA. Incidentally, you WWE fans out there (I think there are about two of you on my friends' list), what's the deal with the Undertaker storyline? Is he actually retired, or is the whole "he lost so he's banished from the WWE" thing just kayfabe?

There's a Worms game on the DS and it's wi-fi capable... ^_~

Also, don't forget that you can use your Wii as a DS Download station if you have the Nintendo Channel installed and your Wii hooked up to t3h intarwebz. Go to the Nintendo Channel, skip the intro, select "Find Titles for You" and then "DS Download Service". Have fun!

Oh I so want a Wii. Now!

And as a matter of fact, I saw Taker last night in Sydney! I'm still getting the update on my WWE weekend finished, but he was still in Australia since he's been announced on that tour for like... forever. He was drinking in the bar at the hotel after, and I didn't talk to him since I never have the guts to talk to Taker! But my friend did, and he said he was taking a break to see how much he misses the business. So... straight from the horses mouth!
