I blame Matt. If he hadnâ€™t taken his Nintendo Wii to Stinson Beach last year I might never have known the delight of waving a remote control at random angles through the air. I jest of course. The Wii has had so much press that even I couldnâ€™t not have become aware of it. Add to that my brother and sister bought machines for their homes and it was only a matter of time before I bought one. I couldnâ€™t be happier with my purchase. Well, there is one thing.
If it was somehow able to freeze time, or add an extra 4 hours on to a day then Iâ€™d be over the moon, but letâ€™s not quibble with fantasies of free time. I bought Super Mario Galaxy with the machine and Iâ€™ve been bowled over. Graphics, gameplay, sound are amazing. I love how Mario zooms from one moon or planet to another. So far itâ€™s been fairly easy but then Iâ€™ve only had an hour or two of play at it and itâ€™s early days yet.
