Games Wii Play

There are at present over 600 games for the Wii. With that amount of games, I’m sure there are some the ladies will love. Below are just 4 that I find intriguing.

Wii Sports was developed by our friends at Nintendo for those of us who like to play sports but have no time to play the real thing. The game consists of 5 sports which include, Tennis, Baseball, Bowling, Golf, and Boxing. Boxing is the only game that uses the nunchuck. I don’t have a favorite, because I enjoy each one. Of course it is more fun playing with another person as opposed to playing against the computer. When playing, make sure you stand far away from your friends. Whacking people with your wii remote is NOT good for relationship building… or your wii remote.

Fitness or Fun? I think the Wii Fit manages a little bit of both. The Wii Fit has a number of activities that you go through (like a game) to break a sweat and when you have successfully completed that activity, you unlock the next round. The Wii Fit works with a wireless peripheral known as the balance board. It’s sensitivity picks up the smallest shifts in weight making the game challenging and fun. Overall the Wii Fit is intuitive and breaks the humdrum routine of going to the gym.

Im sure many of you are already familiar with the tv series ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ The tv series was so popular it is now available for the Wii, mobile phones, and the PC. Dacing with the Stars: Get your Dance On! Includes, mambo, jive, samba, cha-cha-cha, tango, waltz, quickstep, foxtrot, paso doble, and rumba. This should be interesting when you play it with a friend. This game uses the wii remote and nunchuck controls to get the best dance moves. Players can change outfits or partners as and when you feel like it.

This next game, ladies know like the back of their hand. That’s right, The Sims is still keeping up with the times. The game is now available for the wii in the castaway or pet version. The Sims 2: Castaway, is pretty much self-explanatory. You can create up to 6 characters on a ship the later gets wrecked in a storm. The Sims find themselves stranded on an island… the rest is history. The Sims 2: Pets allows the sim to care for animals: dogs, cats, fish, birds, and a rodent similar to a guinea pig. You can choose from a number of breeds and choose colors, coats, etc. The sim must interact with the pet to make it happier and thus increase its life span. It gets better, the pets can breed and produce litter! Well enough spoilers for now, get into some of these games and enjoy the time with friends too!
