It's all fun and games until somebody pokes your eye out!

Despite this, I'm a proud owner of one... and I love it. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is THE HAWTEST game evar. I love the style of it and Link is just hawt. <.< >.>

Wii Sports is also a laugh. It's interesting to play with very interactive remote controls. Wink

Sadly, I've tried (to no avail) many times to bribe the kids at Gamestop/Wal-Mart/Target/Toys 'R Us/Best Buy with hawt cyb0rz for a console.

It is not, I repeat, not recommended. They usually get all flustered and ask you politely to leave, but then nod and wink as you leave. And think how awkward you'll feel after a situation like that.

Instead, try real monies. Works much nicer.

Let's just say the biggest shipment we got here (launch day) was four consoles. My hope of getting one has always been slim to none. If one of you cool cats gets your hands on two, I'll write you out a check for S&H and the full cost of the console.

Because a copy of Twilight Princess is sitting on my desk, taunting me. Because I had $50 on Amazon.com that I just couldn't wait to spend... on a game that I can't play.

Yet.

I managed to pick up a Wii no problem, and actually have already beaten Zelda. Great game Very Happy

Seriously? Sounds like what happened around here for the stupid PS3's. :p
We, unfortunately, had some problems too... and were limited to only 1 console per person.

/agree!

Well, about Zelda being a great game. ^^ We actually had a bit of a hassle obtaining our Wii console. Aseria went to Target @ 4am on release day and was 23/24 tickets (what they passed out in line) ... so he BARELY made the cut to get a hold of a Wii! O_o

We beat Zelda last week. (We = Aseria and I) We ended up with 17 hearts in the end. Awesome game play, IMHO. I was thoroughly impressed with the way they handled this game. *fangirlish squee*

We're going to go back around and try to find the last remaining pieces of hearts. Those are always fun. I think we have 24/30 Agitha bugs located, too. So we need to hunt around for that.

HORSEBACK COMBAT RULES! O_O OMG it was awesome. ^.^ I wish we had that in WoW. XD

I <3 this game. It was everything a Zelda game fangirl could dream for. ^^ I've been playing Zelda since the very first Zelda in 1986. Yah, that dates me... oh wells. :p

And hey Spard, one of our guildmates coincidentally works at Best Buy and he might be convinced with a little hawt cyb0rz. Razz

Shocked

o rly? I seriously would be up for it, I'm buying a secret thing called "game card' with my next paycheck, so yeah... I'd be willing to do anything to get a Wii right now.

And for anyone asking, I'm a cashier at Petsmart Razz

Oh yes! Well, not exactly "sad" per se, but more moving. It really did move me. Not many RPGs (or games for that fact!) can actually achieve that!

Well, I think luck is on my side, as today, I got my hands on not only a wii, but three controllers, twilight princess, and without any hawt cyb0rz.

I am enjoying my wii very, very much.

Congrats Sparden. Smile Enjoy it and stay safe! Wink

Speaking of Wii... we just completed another heart, so now we're at 19/20 hearts! We need to find 5 more pieces. @_@ Bwah. There's a section of the castle that we can't seem to find out how to access, too. *sigh* Boo.
