It's much more easy to just go out and go for a walk.
    Yeah, I was thinking that. I can be pretty faddy. I've got a treadmill that I can go walking on but the Zumba for Wii looks kind of fun.

    Get Kinect and Dance Central. You'll seriously burn some calories playing that. It implements all your limbs.

    I just decided to re-look around the threads here and saw your post. I do have a Wii and bought the fitness board; however, the best game I have purchased is the Gold Gym's Cardio Boxing Game. There are some tips I have for you if you buy this game.

    1.) Bounce back and forth on your feet like it says to do! You can not believe how much it builds the leg muscles just to do that thing in particular.
    2.) Do not use the nunchuck, use a second Wii Remote (you have that option), It feels more comfortable and responds much better than just the nunchuck.

    Other than that it causes a sweat and burns some serious calories. Hope that helps.

    i haven't read this thread yet, but i figure i'll just post and ask before i go back through it. probably a lot of the earlier information is outdated anyway... i'm thinking about buying a wii and eventually the wii fit...

    do you guys have any experience? i haven't bought a game console in forever and a day. i don't know how to begin!

    bundle or indi?

    rechargeable controller or regular? one or two?

    good games? do they all require a lot of activity?

    i kind of want to start with some type of dance game and of course, cutsey mario's or zeldas... are these available?

    where should i go to get? i recently bought a book on amazon and the asshole never shipped it. i don't buy on the internet ever because i'm afraid of this happening... unless you all have some good advice.

    i trust yous guise.

    Wii sports resort is a must

    Regular controller. 2 is a must, unless you are never around anyone.


    If you're talking old school nintendo zelda you like then i'd probably stay away from the new ones. Totally different experience. Marios are good though. Start with the first one and move on up.



    In terms of regular old wii. (this what you're talking about right?) Because they did come out with the wii U recently.


    Also i'd look at local game stores and shops for games and maybe even the console if you get the regular wii. Pretty cheap now. And they have old used games for under 10 bucks that are fine and would be perfect for you since you haven't played any of them and are just starting over.
    And affirmative action is a very nice term for racial discrimination against better-qualified white people in jobs, employment, promotions and scholarships, and college admittance.

    I play wii sometimes! I like to play Mario Kart on the wifi connection. You can race something like 12 people from across the world. If anyone here wants to get their ass kicked by McMama on Mario Kart, let's share names .
