lol the wii is awesome isnt it?

how is Zelda?

someone on here mentioned singles...I live with my girlfriend - so I am trying to get her addicted to the wii too - she has been very anti-videogame up to this point, but she too held the wand and felt the power of nintendo lol.

Good luck on your interview rhyme, I know you will blow them away

Quite good so far. I haven't played much, maybe an hour and I'm already stuck. lol. It's been a while since I've played these kinds of games and I'm a little out of touch with the whole "figure out what to do next" piece. I've broken a bee hike, found a stupid kitten who I need to return, but I need to give it fish, but the kid with the fishing pole forgot it and his mom has it, but I can't find his mom to get the pole, to get the cat, to give back to its owner, to buy a jar to put the darn bee honey in.

All of this, of course, is extremely relevant to my GSB interview tomorrow. I finally managed to turn the game off now (bowling is addictive, very very addictive).

Your probably doing better preparation by fooling around than stressing out or going over your answers AGAIN. Good for you. You guys are right I may have to add wii to my 360.

I had my Chicago interview last Wed and then my Wharton last Fri. I felt a little uncomfortable with the first int. and then great during Wharton. That being said, since you have already interviewed regarding the MBA a number of times I bet you'll do fine. Good luck anyway!

I did my four q's

Why mba
Why now
Why GSB
Why did you move from industry X to Y

They are solid. Other than that, its a guess what they might ask. I just hope that I dont get one of those interviewers who cuts me off every minute

Also just ordered:

3 more controllers + 1 nunchuck
Component cables
Excite Truck
Pangya Golf (i dont think its out but amazon said it was in stock, i expect an email from them telling me its not, but you never know)

Bowling is addictive.
I hate baseball, yet I find this game fun. In fact, im so not into sports, I can't name two football teams, or two baseball teams. I can't name one basketball team, and I couldn't tell you at all when the seasons are. Final fantasy is a videogame to me, not something to do with sports. Yet, here I am, enjoying the game. It's quite fun.
Tennis is blast. I used to play for real, so I can really get into it.
Boxing is suprsingly fun and after 40 minutes of play I had a bit of sweat going. Will the wii be the end of obesity in US children?
Golf is fun but a bit dissapointing, I was hoping for a bit more here in terms of complexity. It's a little too basic, and frankly, only 9 holes is lame. Especially since its the same 9 again and again.

What I'm dissapointed with:

1) Lack of channels. I'd like to have seen some channels actually launched. Better yet, I'd like to see the channel concept opened up so that third party individuals can provide channels - i.e. what if someone wrote some software to play videos off of a network share? There's no reason I can think of that the wii can't do this (provided they are in the right format).

2) Pathetic list of choices in the wii shop. Common, have a few more!

3) Whats with the lack of online support for these games? They could all have been killer apps with online multiplayer!!!

My addiction to videogames was partly a reason why I was so happy to know that our baby is going to be a girl, not a boy.

I will not have to fight over PS3 with her! :lol:

Helg, don't believe them. They always say like that, and a couple years later they would have another version...

Ok the wii is unreal addictive.

I'm five or six hours into Zelda, and its just amazing. The graphics look great (and Im not even 480p yet) - the storyline is one of the first I've ever actually gotten into and the characters they put in there really do have some funny moments.

Wii sports is truly a fun game even if it's "simple". I cant stop screaming at the tv when I screw up or something and I'm jumping all over the place playing these games. So much so, that I kid you not, my arms actually hurt today.

Excite Truck is awesome. I can't stop playing it. Just so much fun! A must have game.

The true test will come tonight when my fiance comes over and tries it.

Three additional wii remotes ordered and shipped! (too bad they wont make it here in time for Thanksgiv)

Yeah I am addicted too - woke up at 6:30am yesterday and played Zelda for a few hours - this game is fun.

I have to admit, I am finding the Wii more appealing then my 360 - I would say it has made me rediscover my love for videogames.

It's not a PS3 or an xbox360, thats for sure. buuuuut.... its a lot more fun to play. For high res button mashing games, I'll take my PC anyday. I've got quad SLI setup on 4000 ANSI lumens 160" projection at 1080p. Expensive setup. F.E.A.R looks great on it.


(Just kidding, but its a nice box)
