Then last night, the greatest thing happened... in walked my husband through the door. NO - that's not the greatest thing that happened - he does that everynight. But he walked in carrying a bag... & inside that bag? A Wii!!!!!!!!!!
His sister & brother in law bought one a few months back but found that they dont ever play it - they are more prone to play their xbox, so this was just getting in the way.... so they asked if we wanted it for a great deal....
um... hello? I've had drool hanging from my chin for awhile over wanting one... of course I wanted it.
And what made it even better? They threw in Michael Jackson - The Experience Game...
So Ricky fell asleep early & I couldnt wait - so I pull up the manual online & figure out how this little contraption works & in no time, I was playing a round of tennis & bowling & getting ready to do a round of boxing. But then I could feel the King of Pop calling my name...
I had to laugh that the "level" on THRILLER is labeled as "Inhuman"... no, I didnt even attempt it...
(You should see me attempting this move... We stand at what? A 90 degree angle?
I lean to probably a 87 degree angle... awesomeness right there!)
Oh yeah baby... I got the moves... was addicted to "Smooth Criminal".... & the whole time, Ricky was asleep on the couch
This morning, as soon as my eyes opened, I said, "I dont want to work today - I just want to dance to Michael Jackson"
Ricky looked so confused & said, "You were REALLY playing last night?" - he didnt know I hooked it up on my own. (Yes, he knows I'm really ill-equipped when it comes to anything technical)
I told him about the songs I kept playing over & over trying to get them down & he was like "Whew!!! I thought I was dreaming you were dancing to Michael Jackson"
.... I should have just let him think he was dreaming...
Me dancing Michael Jackson has GOT to be the best dream he's ever had! :)
So Wii owners... what game MUST I get? That I cant live without? I already know I'm headed out to get the "Just Dance" & probably the GLEE Sing-along games. I just want a microphone.... yes, I'm a 13 yr old girl inside...
Hahaha that sounds like so much fun!ReplyDelete
As a family we love Wii resort! lots of fun games we can all play together on it!
I just got Zumba for Christmas. I hear it is fantastic but I am waiting to break it out when everyone is out of the house and i won't be subjected to teasing! ha!
Mario Kart.... hands down... hahaReplyDelete
We also have Boom Blox, which is really fun to play as a group.
The new Epic Mickey is pretty neat, tho I like WATCHING more than playing! :-P
And if you want a COMPLETE waste of time... Animal Crossing: City Folk. *giggle*
Too funny! Just wait until you guys start recording each other! My dh snuck in and recorded me doing the Russian dance on Just Dance 2. I suspect the footage will be used as bribery somewhere down the road.ReplyDelete
Just Dance 1 & 2 for sure....the Russian dance is my favorite becauseI did mission work in Russia and know how to actually do those moves so I kick tail on that song only! I would suggest Mario Kart as well....it is highly competitive, addictive & fun! Great for when you have company of any age over as well.ReplyDelete
Okay, I'm going to go ahead and tell you right now that I am an expert at the Thriller dance. I know it by heart. I had to learn it for dance class years ago and break it out every now and then :) haha.ReplyDelete
I had no idea there was a Michael Jackson Wii game. This changes everything. I'm so happy for you! You will LOVE Wiiiiiiiiii!
I had no idea that game existed! I'm going to need to see it!ReplyDelete
Hahaha I can just see you bustin'-a-move with your Michael Jackson moves. You are too funny!!ReplyDelete
I don't own a Wii. So I am NO help in the ole game department.
Have a Super Blessed day friend,
We just got one this year... and I SO want the dance game... my niece has it!! lol!! my kids are not so keen on the idea! Enjoy the new toy!! ;)ReplyDelete
HA! You were totally able to cash in on one of my 2011 suggestions! :)ReplyDelete
Games? Uh, I think I'm still deciding, but I know Wii resort was a lot of fun when I played it at a friends house. Other than that, I've just stepped into this world, so I'm not much help.
We HAD a Wii, until the boys switched it out to an X-Box 360 last year. I could've killed them! I'm looking at getting a Kinect.ReplyDelete
I so want on also.. Maybe some day.. Sorry I left you wondering about me.. I will post more next week..ReplyDelete
