I made a conscious effort to cut back on gaming expenditures this month, and had it not been for my Wii arriving mid-month as a debt payment from a friend, I wouldn't have bought any games whatsoever. I was compelled to pick up a few things, though:
I had to pick up a fresh Wiimote, and of course that meant Wii Play and a nunchuck. Then, I felt obligated to pick up the reigning champ of casual games, Boom Blox, which rocks. That would have been the end of this torrid affair, but I spied a copy of Hotel Dusk in the glass case for only $20, and judged that a good deal, and an easy and profitable flip online if I don't care for it, myself. Not pictured is the Wii component cable I had to run out and buy to maintain some semblance of a respectable resolution and progressive scan in my console gaming.
My Wii came with well-rounded suite of entertainment software applications, gratis, as pictured here:
I have yet to try any of these games besides Wii Play (more like Wii Lame) and Boom Blox. I'm not too sure about some of them, but I hope to put in a couple hours with them before hawking them toward Wii Point cards or better games for other systems. Super Mario Galaxy, is of course at the top of this pile. It's the rest that receive the gaze of suspicion.
