Several days ago (before my laptop died), we managed to find a Wii Fit at the local Blockbuster. We went to see if they had Too Human to rent. I'd played the demo, but it wasn't good enough for me to want to buy (plus the reviews weren't all that great). So when we saw a sign that said they had it, I decided to buy it. My brother did give me money to buy a Wii Fit for my birthday, but we never got around to buying one because there wasn't one in stock. So of course, I had to buy one.
I originally wanted the Wii Fit because it had yoga poses and I thought that I'd be able to go through a whole routine with the Wii Fit and it would be fun too! What's funny is that I enjoy the balance games. They are the one's that have you slolam down the hill, or head butt every soccer ball that's coming your way. Chris enjoys the yoga exercises. They are nothing more than basic yoga poses, but the game tells you how to do them and helps you with your balance. But because it isn't a game, I don't really like them. I do them because they're good for me, but I spend most of my time playing the actual games.
Some of them require you to shift your weight from the balls of your feet to your heel, from left foot to right foot. And if you didn't know that someone was playing the Wii Fit, you'd think that they were failing their sobriety test. You sway like you're a drunken sailor. I thought it was funny.
It measures your weight and tells you the bmi, etc. But it's got a wicked sense of humor. Sometimes when you stand on the Wii board, it's screams in surprise. Ok, maybe not screams, but it does proclaim an "oh!" when you step on. Like it was surprised that you weigh so much. That, I don't like so much. But it could also be the way we step on it. Maybe we stepped on it too hard too fast. Because it will be polite other times and say "OK." But you know, I don't think it really needs to be so surprised when you step on it.
