    Wii

    If you have kids with an interest in video games (this one even provides physical exercise), you need this.

    Re: Wii

    How's the U.S. JD? Can you see the recession where you are?

    I met an American yesterday who comes from a farming region in the west and he said he couldn't see it at all when he was back there last month.

    I'm sure it's very different in other areas though.

    But, as with H1N1, the media isn't helping either.

    Although I'll never make a good Texan I have to say it ain't too bad.

    Property value here was never inflated so it never cashed. It's cheaper than I ever imagined, cheaper than Thailand in many ways.

    It's very quiet in my neighborhood. And those who walk dogs carry a pooper-scooper and a plastic bag.

    No cheap cars left .. cash for clunkers took them all.

    My older children LOVE computer games (I'm a "meany" and give time limits!) They have the X-box but tried the Wii at my parents' house while back in the UK...THEY LOVED
    IT...HOWEVER, SPACE is important when playing Wii, my parents are in their 50s and my girls were FAAAAAR more active using the thing than them! Suffice to say (putting it lightly!) that things got broken in their excitement and people got smacked in the face/other body parts if they ventured too close to children waving body and arms around playing Wii!!

    Good games - but ought come with a health warning to those happening to come into the vicinity of the player/s!

    Re: Wii

    You have to get the extension games. The sports that come with it seems to get old. Great idea tho.

    Re: Wii

    Can I copy wii disks - are free programmes available to make backups of disks?

    I've googled and there seems to be a few issues - breaking warranties, quite a few programs that claim they can copy but cost money.

    Any suggestions.....just want to back up my disks

    Yes very easily...you just need an SD card and you have to download some software onto it.

    You simply insert it into the wii and it starts the Bannerbomb hack which l;ets you run the Homebrew Channel. Once you have this installed the world is your oyster. I would also install Bootmii which allows you to make a back-up of your system's factory settings, and keep it somewhere safe.

    Best thing is that you can use a USB harddrive to store and run all your games off. Mario Kart is easily the most addictive game on the Wii.

    DOCTOR!

    Yeah I like them too, but I lost interest when I kept having to do the pentagram gesture to slow down time as I was crap at it.

    My kids love the Xbox 360 and they bought themselves a Live membership so they can play online. I'm seriously concerned that these games may become addicting.

    I find that Mario Kart has a real family binding thing to it...both Kan and I enjoy playing together, my daughter likes messing about on it, and she also picks which circuit we play, addictive but in a social way.
