Nintendo Wii is the shizzle Flippity Floppity Floop

Brother Jay talks about getting a Wii. The Wii is 110% of pure, unadulterated fun.

At 22 months, the kid looks like he can kick my butt.

At last year's holiday party at Big Tech company, I took the kid's Wii in for entertainment. Engineers lined up in the hallways, waiting impatiently for their turn at Wii Tennis.

Plus, we downloaded the old Pokemon Snap Nintendo 64 game, which is maybe my favorite game ever. The game is OK, but playing it with your kids - Made. Of. Win.

Now Wii Skeet - that would be teh Awesome. Just sayin'.

Doubletrouble, you tell that to the young kids, and they won't believe you.

Wii tennis is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. The bowling's fun too.

They actually do have Wii skeet, or at least something like it. The game Wii Play has a selection of various games to play against someone else, and the very first one is a shooting game, a'la Duck Hunt from the old old NES. YOu start by shooting balloons, then move on to targets, then skeets, then UFO's. The occasional duck flies through.

The bonus is that you can get a 'gun' to snap the remote into, and you use the B trigger button as the trigger. Fun FUn FUn...
