Yay! I finally got me a Wii Fit!


Wii FitI didn’t think Nintendo’s Wii Fit would be such a hassle to find in stores like the Wii console was. After hitting three different stores last week (ToysRUs, Rogers Video and a Shoppers Drug Mart), I had no luck. They appeared to be sold out everywhere, with sporadic shipments that were gone within hours online and in stores.

Initially I was going to stop at Rogers Video again today and check to see if they got stock in, but I opted to go to the Wal-Mart Supercentre at Warden & Eglinton and I lucked out! Went straight to the electronics department, asked the stock guy and waited after he said, “Hold on, lemme check”, and was out of the store 1 minute later! Thank goodness I got off work early today. :)

I can’t wait to try out the balance board and play those cool-looking games, but I probably won’t have time to until Sunday since I have a busy weekend planned.

I Just Experienced A Dance Dance Revolution


Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA for PlayStationI should’ve gotten a PlayStation and Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA instead of Hip Hop Abs. Man, this game is a workout! Just got back home from my sister’s BBQ, and my brother had this game on his PlayStation. I’ve always wanted to try that cabinet arcade version, but I think it slipped my mind that they have an ‘at home’ one (I really need to get back into the gaming scene…)

The low level is pretty easy… but I fathom to think how much game practice a person has to do to get a good score at the advance level (damn those speedy arrows!). The game needs better songs though… (although Fall Out Boy’s “Dance Dance” is one of my favs ;) ) I think I lost all the calories I gained eating all that BBQ! I didn’t even know that the home version has a workout mode to estimate calories burned!

I just wish I can move as good as this kid:
