lol, we don't have the same ads, but the ones I've seen do seem to over-exaggerate their movement.
Zelda works with small flicks of the wrist too, and the seperated two handed remote style makes it easy to get too comfortable and fall asleep gaming.

yes And Zelda has as many pestering creatures as FF, so there are probably just as many fights.

I'm starting to think (thanks a lot to DA's recent post ) that perhaps Wii was a bit of a preposterous idea. On the other hand, I still won't try to join the for or against Wii people before I have tried playing it myself... tounge1

When I played the first big boss in Zelda's first dungeon I knew I would not want to play that part with a regular controller.

I do want to try the gamecube version just to compare how crippled it would feel.

Not to spoil any part of the new Zelda game but the first big boss requires fast precision aiming. wink

Yay and now it doesn't feel as preposterous (hehe you scared me with the sleeping while playing remark!). As I said, perhaps the best thing I can do is not make any judgements before I try Wii myself. yes

Well, I finally have a Wii-mote
my Wii will probably come next Week, so right now I only play with the Wii-mote
And even that is a little fun tounge2


I'm posting here since I've heard that the weather channel for Wii is released

but more importantly today Nintendo is realising a beta-version of the Internet channel that you can download for free, the real version will come in mars I think.

So now I'm waiting for DreamAddict to make a post using Wii tounge2

I've been dissapointed with Nintendo ever since the N64 days, but the idea of the Wii is starting to grow on me. So, I entered like 6 contests to win one tounge2

This Wii looks awesome. I've been told that for a good school report mum's putting 200 bucks towards anything... And I said a Wii (I pay the extra 200 plus another 100 or so towards a game)... Of course I'm Australian so the Wii costs AUS$400... CAN'T WAIT!

I might get one at Christmas or after. I was at the store and oddly enough they had 2 PS3's and no Wii.

...That surprised me alittle..

You get a keyboard on the screen and you have to point at each letters on at a time.
