A Smashing Good Time

I had a pretty great night this evening.

After a rather long day of getting the Bridge’s televisions setup at church, Amber met up with me and we decided to go out to dinner, hitting one of my favorite places to get Pizza, the Green Mill. From there, we came back to my house and began talking about wedding stuff.

In passing at some point, I mentioned that I wouldn’t mind heading up to Walmart around midnight to pick up Smash Brothers for the Wii (it came out this morning). That very quickly lead to, why don’t we go to Walmart and register then. So Amber and I left about 10:15, and spent the next hour and a half registering for our wedding. At around 11:45, I got in line (yes, there was a line of about 35 people, they had about 48 copies of the game, so everyone got one, but still… not bad for a game release that you could have pre-ordered. )

I picked it up, came home, and I smashed for about 30 minutes before calling it a night. All in all a great evening, both in time spent with my future wife, as well as in just plain non-work related fun.

    You need to let me mooch a smashing experience. As in we should play at your house some time.

    I am not a fan of this new smash bros, FYI. I think it's because nun chucks confuse the heck out of me. And it's probably because the dudes are so little on the screen that you can't really figure out if you're close enough to do attacks and grab people and stuff. And I'm just a whiner when I lose at things…

    You don't have to use the nunchucks… Like i said in my post… I was playing with just the regular wiimote…

    You didn't say that you liar. I just read it again…twice.

    Actually, Justin's right — when one uses the verb "smash" in the context of the Wii, it's referring to the regular wiimote. Otherwise, you are nunchuk smashing. By his omission of the nunchuk, we can assume he meant with the wiimote.

    Just kidding, I've never even played so I have idea what's going on!

    Ok, I must be in a temporal vortex because I swear I wrote a review of the game and it was part of this post… Brain… failing, but thanks for the defense Alex.

    Alex, I almost believed you. I still thought it was LAME, but I almost believed. What are you sucking up to him for?!

    And now that I've read the instructions for the game I know that you can use like three different kinds of controllers and that's kinda confusing all in itself.. but cool. I still don't like how far out the characters are when you're playing with four people. But I don't quite HATE the game anymore…
