We Wii At Work

In Mike Tyson’s Wii-Punch-Out, you must bite off a virtual ear.

Spreading their addictive interactive joy, Nintendo loaned our workplace a Wii system for a week so that we could review it and become so dependent that we’d each have to buy one.

The Wii is Nintendo’s fifth home entertainment system in North America, not including their silly red 3-D 32-bit virtual reality-type system that only sold fourteen copies, all of which have become "collector items" on eBay.

Agent double-oh 239… Lbs. Oops, sorry Jod.Nintendo sent along their sleek Wii in an even sleeker carrying case fit for a secret agent. Yes, we finally know what was in the case in Ronin. The silver case was loaded with controllers, wires and games like Excite Truck (remember Excite Bike?!?), Zelda, and Warioware which contains 200 micro games. To see the opened case full of goodies, click here.

Strung-out co-workers battled each other in Boxing, attempted to out-bowl each other, and faced off in tennis matches. One overzealous co-worker began wailing on his boxing opponent for real, and Jodster and I had to step in to break it up. A collection has been set up to bail our co-worker out of jail.

And this is a good time to remind everyone that one should only use Wii controllers with the Wii system. When playing Baseball, don’t use a real baseball bat. It’s not compatible with the system, and could seriously injure someone, or break mom’s favourite ceiling fan.

Also, when playing Friday The Thirteenth, don’t use a real meat-cleaver. That’s just an accident waiting to happen. Bob The Builder fans shouldn’t use a real hammer, either.

Remember to be Wii-sponsible. Only you can prevent Wii deaths.

I just can't get excited about gaming anymore. I used to love the Original Mario Brothers on Nintendo. 64 was ok too :)

Is your place hiring? I'd even be the janitor if I get to play the Wii... :D

It's not released here yet...

I'm tempted to buy the XBOX 360 when I was PS2 game shopping yesterday... :| Must resist... must resist temptation!

I used to love Excite Bike. If you drive the Excite Truck too fast off a jump, does it fly off the screen and come up through the ground?

No wii-related injuries to report? They're like an epidemic lately.

Hey thea, I didn't get a chance to blast the truck off a jump, but wouldn't it be great if those Nintendo programmers snuck that lil' trick into the game?

Don't fret. If I photograph any injuries, they'll be posted here, in full bloody detail.
