The Legend of Zelda mighty twilight princess statue

April 24, 2008

So here I was waiting patiently on a thursday morning for a package with Wii Fit to arrive that I did not even think of what was inside this huge box. I had been waiting for over a month for the hard earned Zelda statue that I gotten after scratching my way into 14000 worth of Club Nintendo stars in an afternoon. I pretty much had very litlle faith but for a glimpse of hope given by a very kind Nintendo staff member that promised to get it sorted for me.

But moving on I opened the box to find out that it was indeed the statue and it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be like! It is said that pictures can reveal more than words sometimes so I will let you readers see just how incredible this statue is. It is a most worthy price for playing all those quality Nintendo games in the last few years and something that I will have to display for sure.

I would like to thank Nintendo if any staff member ever comes across this for all the hard work put into making the stars catalogue so rewarding and for the brilliant games I played.

 

Wii fit launch

April 23, 2008

With the real launch starting off on friday today’s event was more about persuading as many people as possible to get into the Wii Fit idea. In all honesty that was not a problem already as millions of people had pre ordered the title meaning it already sold out in most places as it is. When I read about this launch I was more than willing to go and try the game myself for the simple reason that I wanted to see if the Wii Balance board really did wonders. To start off as I made my way to the event it was pouring rain like it was still Winter time. This did not dissuade me from going though as I expected the event to be inside a building but was I in for a surprise. As I got there a bit late at around 10 30 AM activities were already underway. I was surprised to only see some famous people on this rather incredible house display very fittingly demonstrating the Wii Fit game.
