I am a huge gamer, have been since I was… well, what age can you hold a controller?
(A select collection of my favourite games)

Like millions, I have moved through the generations of gaming systems, original Nintendo (DUCK HUNT!!!!), Super Nintendo (SUPER MARIO WORLD!!!), Sega (SONIC!).. Playstation 1, 2, 3.. Xbox…. and now Wii. Wii, like the iPod, has truly changed, I don’t want to say the “world” but you know what I mean.


By far, the most addictive game. So many characters to choose from as well (from Diddy Kong to Baby Luigi to Dry Bones), tons of karts and bikes. Courses include Yoshi Falls, DK Mountain, Wario’s Goldmine, Peach Gardens and Coconut Mall. There are two tournaments a month, where the courses are altered and you can submit your best score to the “WorldWide Record.” The best part of the game is it’s “Wi-Fi” meaning you can play with anyone in the world (who also has the game, obviously). You can race against up to 12 players or battle (coins / balloons). You can even purchase a wheel if you don’t want to use your controllers. Truly Addicting.

Learn how to play music with this game. It has just about every instrument you can think of. The drums are obviously the most fun šŸ˜‰ If you have Wii-Fit, it enhances your experience! Plus, Mozart is your teacher. It has many games and quizzes. It’s a lot of fun. Just look at what you can do…


No Wii talk is complete without talking about SUPER MARIO GALAXY. There is no words to describe this game. Phenomenal is an understatement. You will be blown away while playing this. The attention to detail is immaculate. The music is brilliant (trust me, you will definitely get some of the songs stuck in your head).

(Here’s a sample of music from one of the levels: So pretty and brilliant!)

Here’s a sample of one of my favourite levels. The Piranha is the most terrifying EVER (to just see that, skip to 5:08).

What I love about Mario Galaxy is not only the fun, but the colours, music, and mostly the angles of view. You don’t just see what’s in front of Mario, nor do you stare at his behind the entire game. You can access all sides of him. It’s kind of trippy in a way.

Downside? NO YOSHI šŸ˜¦
(but have no fear – MAY 23rd – MARIO GALAXY 2! with Yoshi!)

Yoshi, Toad, Mario and Luigi ALL IN ONE! What’s so great about this game? EVERYTHING. The fact that it’s not a one-player game, but up to four players makes it that more exciting! I was trying to figure out how to describe the game, “fun” is just cliche, and so is awesome. Then a friend said, “cute,” (which I know men wouldn’t enjoy to hear). But yes, the game is CUTE, and ADORABLE. Just listen to the music! And what’s so cute? The enemies (koopas, goombas etc.,) even Yoshi DANCE to the beat of the music. Adorable, adorable, and filled with cuteness.

    Do NOT bother with Sega all stars! It is absolutely awful! I feel like my money has been wasted!

      Oh no, why? I really want that game! And you can play on-line (which is big seller for me!), that’s why I love Mario Kart soooooo much – is the fact that I can play with people all over the world!

    I totally agree about mario galaxy’s music! It’s so cool and fun. I wish Nintendo would come out with a soundtrack so I can buy it!

    I have Mario Kart wii as well, I’m not as good as other people online, but it’s always fun šŸ™‚

      If you go to youtube they have almost every level and song that has to do with Mario Galaxy on there! You can listen to it šŸ™‚ Also, there are softwares online (I don’t know if you have a PC or Mac.. I’m on a Mac) where you can rip the songs from youtube and import them into itunes! Voila!

      Truly the best music šŸ™‚

    How do you like Wii Fit Plus? I’ve been wanting to try it out! I have the regular wii fit, but the plus one looks really good.

      I haven’t really tried it out, my sister is actually the one who has used it more, but I have watched her.

      It’s definitely different from the regular Wii-Fit. It has more levels and more additions to it. It’s a lot of fun! Definitely purchase it if you’re thinking about it. And it’s also good because it carries your stats from Wii-Fit on over! So you don’t have to enter your weight/heights/age/etc., again.

      Also, let’s say you want to have a slice of pizza – WiiFitPlus has a huge list of food – you find the slice of pizza, and it will tell you how many calories you have to lose on Wii Fit Plus! Every game or pose you do will tell you how many calories are left.

      Definitely purchase it! šŸ™‚
