The Sweater I Wanted in 1990 and Today

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I still spend time once a month looking to see if Contra has been released in the virtual console for the Nintendo Wii. I play Super C still regularly but would love to throw Contra into the mix. Not sure what Contra or Super C is? Either you were not gaming in the early 1990s or just truly do not understand the concept of teamwork. A big thanks to Doug for sharing the photo!

Nintendo Wii Speak Channel

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

The Wii is by far one of the coolest if not the coolest console I have ever owned. The one thing I do miss from my PS 2 days is the voice interaction I had while playing games. I just read about something really cool that will perhaps take care of my want for voice interaction: This from the Nintendo news site: The new Wii Speak Channel arrives on Nov. 16 and uses the Wii Speak, a microphone that sits on top of your television. This accessory is sold separately at an MSRP of $29.99. People who buy the microphone… Read More »

Wii Fit, MarioKart, and Guitar Hero

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have to say – it has been a long time since I was excited about a game or a gaming console…probably since SoCom II, but lately I have been super excited about the Nintendo Wii. We got Wii Fit and MarioKart over the last week and have been loving both. I am also now on the hard level of Guitar Hero 3. I am super excited to show my sister both of those! I look forward to playing MarioKart online with some friends. If any readers have it – let me know your friend ID and I will add… Read More »

Back to Eighth Grade…

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

I have been reliving life as an 8th grader in 1990-1991 again the last few days by playing my once/once again favorite game: Super Mario 3. I picked up Super Mario 3 for the Wii via the Virtual games and have been loving every second of my game play. It is amazing how much I remembered (secret areas, etc) and I just checked out a site that lists some goodies that I had forgotten about (coin ship, warp from world 1, etc). I always had fond memories of this game – and spent a lot of late nights with friends… Read More »

Find Out When New Wii Games Are Released

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

Ever since I got the Wii, I have been watching to see what old games would be released for the Virtual Console and I finally decided to check out to see if Nintendo had a feed for all new game releases. Sure enough, they have a RSS feed and it lists all new game releases. (This way I can stay on top of the RC Pro Am release…whenever that might be). The feed also includes news as well – but at least I can passively get the release dates and some general news instead of searching for it. If you… Read More »

Finally Got a Wii!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

Finally – I made it to a Best Buy that had a Wii over the weekend! I saw the flier in the Sunday paper that Best Buy had some in stock so I jumped in the car with Amy and E and we got there to get a “ticket” which guaranteed a Wii. So far I only have 2 games (Wii Sports and some other game that came with a second controller) but look forward to getting some more games soon. Anyone play the newest Mario?
