I'm still alive... as if anyone reads these.

Well as you may have read, I did not move. The simplified reason is because we had a bad feeling about it. We've been happy with our decision.

Since then I've been doing several things. With taxes I was able to find a Wii (all thanks to luck, and knowing people :D) Since then I bought 3 games, while renting a few others.
(Warning long list ahead. If you don't want to read it, skip ah
Games I own:
WiiSports: I give it a 4 1/2 out of 5. It has great replayablity, its great fun in parties, but it does sometimes get on my nerves.

WiiPlay: I give it a 3 1/2 out of 5. While it has more verity of games, the only one I ever play regularly is the billiards one. Tanks is fun every once in a while tho.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves: It gets a perfect 5. While the story mode may be short, its more of a party game anyways. Its always fun to watch people make an idiot of themselves.

Super Paper Mario Bros.: This also gets a 4 out of 5. It combines RPG elements well into classic Mario gameplay. Sadly it gets somewhat boring after a short while.

Games I rented. . . that I can remember:

Excite Truck: Ahhh this was fun. I liked the controls a lot, it was a bit surprising a launch third person game could be so much fun. Multiplayer gets really crazy.If it was not for the custom soundtrack, it would not be worth it to buy personally.

Pokemon Revolution: Another great game. I liked the 3D graphics, and it was fun to battle others. The different ruled arenas were a good touch in the single player mode. Sadly the announcer got on my nerves and sometimes said something that made me laugh out like a moron.

Sonic and the secret rings: It was alright. The controls were a little sketchy, but overall it was fun. The multiplayer was also a good touch, and brought back memories of the sonic board game , sonic shuffle, for the DreamCast.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon: It was fun, but I had much more fun playing the racing game in it... thats a bit sad.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: It was a good game, but it felt somewhat lacking due to the lack of sidequests, and stuff to do outside of the story.

Super Mario Strikers: . . . don't know it was shipped to me a few days ago. Should arrive soon. Stay tuned for my next post to see how I liked it.

Overall there is none of those I would not recommen for a rent, but a few I just can't find myself to buy even at half price. Now as for the games I'm looking forward to, I have a few in my mind.

1. Battalion Wars 2: Loved the original, but hated how short it was. Hopefully they will have a better single player mode, and the multiplayer mode should be real fun.

2. Nights: Journey into dreams: I missed out on the original Nights. Thankfully I won't have to miss out on this version

3. Super Smash Bros. Brawl: I know, I know. Its just I like this game, but its not that high of a priority for me. I do have it reserved, so I know I'll get it when its released. I'm looking forward to useing Metaknight, and testing out the new Adventure mode.

4. Super Mario Galaxy: That game looks great. Being able to go upside down will provide some sicking fun.

5. Metroid Prime 3: I am looking forward to using the Wiimote to aim her cannon.

6. Mario Kart Wii: Its Mario Kart, with a mini plastic wheel, enough said.

Ok we have those lists out of the way, but if I wanted to really bore you to death (I commend you for getting this far) I could go on with several lists for each system I own, but I'm not THAT mean.

Other than playing on the wii, I've discovered a new flash site that offers more than any other flash game site. For the Developers, it provides money generated by the adds, for the players it offers challenges, which offer cards, to be used at a later time, and badges, which provide points.

On top of that I have not been completely wasting my time on games (although I've spent around 95% of it on games...) I've been working on perfecting html (Dame you tables!) and also working on CSS. After I get good at that I will look into expanding my abilities to Java.

Long story short (to late) I've yet to do anything with my life except learn a small amount of HTML and CSS.
