Default It's Wii Day!

Did anybody get one? Every store in a 35 mile radius was sold out in like 20 minutes for me.

If punjman replies to this thread, let the world note it as his official confession to sexual deviancy involving a walrus, a shampoo bottle, and 6 oz of WD40.

My roommate's is on its way in the mail and will be at his house on Tuesday. His older brother waited in line and got one early this morning. I don't buy consoles until they've been modded anymore, so I suspect it will be a while before I pick one up. But I'm sure I will spend plenty of time with my roommate's after Thanksgiving break.

Sadly I didn't get one. As soon as I can I will though. Wal-Mart was basically sold out before I had a chance to line up. >_< Something like 28 units and 32 people lined up...people with no life I CURSE YOU!

Really tired, so this will be brief. Waited in line for 19 or so hours outside of Best Buy. By 5am, there were 80ish people in line for the 60 consoles. We were 13th, 14th, and 17th in line and another one of my friends came way later on and he was 41 or so. Really awesome time, I'll have to write about it.

In short, the system is really fucking small, almost entirely silent and runs very very cool. Zelda is amazing, Wii Sports is a surprising amount of fun, and Red Steel really sucks.

I saw people camping-out outside of Best Buy, they had tents and everything. One of the guys had a highly detailed picture of Mario tattooed on his arm with the Nintendo logo underneath.

Didn't want to waste my time and day waiting in line. I drank beer, ate pizza, and played Resident Evil Code Veronica X and then some RO.

I'll get a Wii (and XBOX 360) on or after Christmas if I feel like it. I'm too addicted to Final Fantasy III for the DS. The best Square RPG in almost a decade. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

I'm not going to bother trying to get a Wii this year. I think I'll get myself a DS Lite and some new games instead. I'll see about getting a Wii in 2007, when I don't have to fight for one.

I had a feeling it would but can you describe the suck? Storyline suck, gameplay suck, or some other kind?

I have a tatoo of King Koopa on my right forearm exactly how he appears at the end of each World. In all his pixelate glory.


It was one of those "I'm really stoned let's get a tat" tatoo.
