Finally! An Excuse to Play Video Games!

I've been a long-time fan of video games. From Pole Position to Twisted Metal to Mario Party, I've been trying to find any way to justify my actions. When the Wii came out, I knew it was going to get a little easier. Who here hasn't had sore muscles after playing that thing? But now, Nintendo is making it official as they market the Wii Fit to women.

This add-on "expands the range of games that can be played on the Wii to include activities such as yoga and push-ups. The Balance Board - which resembles bathroom scales - also tracks a user's weight and body-mass index."

I don't know about yoga or push-ups, but now it's going to be easier to justify Carnival Games.

That looks so cool. What else can they make for that Wii? They just keep on coming out with cooler and cooler things for it.

I am SO excited about this (and Diddy Kong racing for Wii). I am TOTALLY going to buy it and maybe this will encourage me to work out!

YAY nintendo!

I am really excited for this! It's amazing how their technology works. Apparently WiiFit will tell you whether you're doing yoga positions correctly based on how your weight is spread across your feet. That's high-tech right there!

While most game systems decided to work on making the graphics better Nintendo decided to go in a way different direction and make some really innovative and cool stuff. I can't wait until we actually get one. A. has been talking about it for too long we need to just get one.
