* Wii second impressions

Gamecube/Nintendo
Wii Sports - the graphics aren't anything tremendous, but all at once, it manages to show off the Wii's graphical capabilities while providing an entire group of enjoyable, fun titles. Tried out boxing against a friend, as well as the rest... it took him longer to adjust to the Wiimote than I did, even though all he had to do was swing it naturally; he kept trying to "jab" with it.

Curiously, even while it seems wireless and has the ability to detect pretty fine-controlled motions, a solid body (say, that of a medium-sized dog or a human) can block it off, which causes the Wiimote occasionally to "lose" the console while doing bowling.

Zelda: Twilight Princess? drool...... Ok, so Gabe/Tycho said that the graphics weren't all that hot? The graphics serve, and show a wonderful world. Having mentioned my earlier complaint with the inadequate cables and lack of retail availability for the network and component cables, I'm pretty sure now that the upgrade to progressive scan will clear up what issues I do have with the visuals.

Word to the wise: if you have multiple places you want to carry the thing (and big N even are selling carrying cases), invest in an extra sensor bar. Once it's glued in place (they included some extra sticky-tape, good move there), getting it off of the TV would just be painful.
