Zelda is pretty good

Been playing around with Zelda some more, with Remi - my sisters boyfriend. After the initial few hours of gameplay (which didn't impress me much) I'm growing fonder of the game. Maybe it just took some getting used to.

The graphics were not all that to begin with, but after a while they become good enough and it is really the playability that counts. The Wii controllers are something else, and it is easy to spend hours in front of Zelda without noticing how time flies by.

Unfortunately I don't have a wireless router, so I'm not able to connect to the net yet, but once I do, I'll be downloading some of the classic games, like Super Mario Bros 3. I'm maybe getting a bit old for games like this, but what the heck, remembering how fun and all-absorbing it was to play these games in the past, I'd love to have that feeling again.

I have great respect for what Nintendo has done, from their NES to the Wii today, and at some point in my career, I'd like to work with them to see how they manage to create these marvelous things, and maybe make some significant contributions.

Wii-whee

Purchased a Wii console today, along with Zelda. First impression: this could be interesting.

The console also came with Wii Sports, a collection of things you can play, like baseball, boxing, tennis and so on.

Will post more about it later, now I've gotta try this thing out. :)
