I’m not a big video game guy. I was a Nintendo fan when I was a kid, but I was more interested in Nintendo Power than stockpiling a bunch of games. I bought a Nintendo 64 for Goldeneye while in college, a Playstation 2 years later and a Wii a year after it came out.
But after spending nine weeks cooped up in my house recovering from surgery, I gave my Wii to my brother, wanting never again to spend hours in front of a TV screen.
And then last year Katie won a Wii. We bought a few games, mostly used from GameStop or Bookman’s, and played it sparingly. She sure did love the Wii Fit and when Goldeneye came out last month, I rushed to buy it.
And then Scott Cate held a Microsoft Professional Developer’s Conference viewing at Gangplank and I won an XBox 360 with Kinect. I was stoked to play Halo Reach, Call of Duty and a ton of other games my friends had been hyping up, as well as see what the Kinect had to offer.
The Kinect is freaking awesome. I sit on the couch while Katie dances for hours until she gets tired. Then I play Halo Reach.
You shake that thang, girlfriend! Rawr.
