Wii Fit

So sorry I havent written anything here for months. But must start by blogging about Wii Fit in the leadup to blogging about my new game coming this week (or should that be wii-k). I’m getting Wii Sports Resort :-)

I wont blog WSR until I have played but I want to ask now who has played it yet?
1a. What do you think of it?
2a. How many hours do you spend a day on the game?
I want to find out this before I start playing with it so I can rave about it when I have played!

However now I want to focus on the Wii Fit.
Similar sorts of questions to the above is what I’d like to ask you.
1b. How many hours a week/day do you play?
2b. Favourite activity on the Wii Fit?
3b. Has it changed your lifestyle?

OK with that out of the way I want to continue with the post by telling you more about my experiences with it.

I played Wii Fit first on my birthday in 2008 and I have enjoyed unlocking all the stuff and beating scores and then tweeting them out occasionally when I did really well! My favourite minigame is the Heading one because I have played that loads and I have a high score of 555 (impressive huh?)!
Other sports on there are boxing to a rhythm, running, stepping, Yoga, streches, and catching fish (!) plus many more cool games where you have to maintain balance and stealth to help keep a fit and healthy body and grow stronger in your core areas.

I dont use it near enough as I should do because I dont like it when I cant beat my scores and it gets really annoying. However at the end of all that work you can sit on the board and play Zazen to calm you when you have worked that sweat up!

I really enjoy to get the full star ratings in the games so I can unlock the next level of difficulty but on one of the mini games I wish there were more levels… Table Tilt. I find playing the same boards a little boring and wish there was a whole game that could use that mini game as the main point. I know of other non wii board games… (such as Kororinpa) that allows you to get a ball/marble round a course collecting things and not falling off. So why haven’t Nintendo brought out a full Table Tilt game? I always feel like I have to know the tables in that so well because there isnt so many, and feel stressed when I dont get a good score.

I must say all in all Wii Fit is a huge success and is helping kids develop muscles and move in a new way. I really want some more WiiBoard games out and I cant wait to see what this next few years has got in store for developing use of the Wii Balance Board!

    Talking about WSR, i think its really good, it kinda felt like when you first got the Wii and played Wii sports, with the activities working really well with the motionplus, with me preferring the swordplay and flying activities. I try and play it when i have the time (and energy) but when i do start, i find myself playing for hours on end without noticing it!

    With the Wii fit, i used to play it for at least an hour and a half a day, but since i’ve been working long hours 6 days a week, i find i don’t really have the time or energy for it as i do a LOT of walking while i work! However, my favourite activity would be the step aerobics as i can do that even when i’m feeling tired and can step it up a level if i want to!

    I think it has change my lifestyle as i can really keep track of the exercise i do, and its fun, which makes it feel less of a chore! :)
