Wii Weight Loss Plan

Categories: Wii Info.

Get in shape with the Wii.

“Hi, I’m J. R. and I like to play with my Wii.

Now that we have that joke out the way, I want to describe what I am trying to do here on this site.

The idea behind Wiiweightlossplan.com came to me the first day that I had received and started playing my Nintendo Wii back in early January. I knew after a couple hours of playing Wii Sports (and a few sore muscles later) that this gaming system could really be a good workout and could probably help me get back into shape. Best of all though, it was FUN.

However, I’m lazy.

I never followed through with this idea until I read the results of the Wii Sports Experiment. Seeing the results of this experiment motivated me, and I’m now determined to do what this guy has done, except on a greater scale. I want to lose 80 pounds! And I want to do it in a year and I want to do it by using my Nintendo Wii as an exercise utility.

Tools to open a Wii

Categories: Wii Info.

Here is all you need to crack open lots of things, like the Wii.

“There’s nothing like a nice set of screwdrivers to make a person feel special, and the only thing better than an array of differently sized Phillips-head lovelies is a specialised set. Zoozen’s latest is specially grouped to unlock consoles new and vintage – including all XBox, Playstation, modern Nintendo and most handhelds – and will also do a pretty good job of opening cellphones too. Best thing is, it costs just $14.95.”

Categories: Wii Info.

You can buy vintage games to play on the Wii but here is a collection of 10 cool games that can be played with the Wii online for free.
Link and some game titles after the jump.

“Months ago, Nintendo and Opera teamed up to release a beta version of the Opera Web Browser for Nintendo Wii. While you can hop online and view your favorite websites with the browser, it also serves a more fascinating and entertaining purpose: it allows you to play flash games on your TV with the Wii-mote. Internet addicts are already well aware of the fact that flash games can be surprisingly fun, but they might not be aware that there are some flash games on the ‘Net that work perfectly with the Wii-mote. We’ve done all the hard work for you here. We’ve searched and searched and searched, coming up with a list of some of our favorite flash games to play on Wii.”

Wii Sports Pack

Categories: Wii Info.

“In what’s likely to go down as the most heavily accessorized (and harmful) controller ever, Nintendo’s Wiimote sure is garnering a lot of attention from accessory makers. Sure, those Wii Gloves may keep butterfinger disasters from ever occurring, but they really don’t give you any sort of competitive advantage when throwing down in Wii Sports. While we knew JoyTech was planning its own barrage of controller add-ons, it looks like Brando is offering up a sweet trio of Wiimote extensions to presumably improve your Wii Sports play. For just $22, you’ll get a tennis racket, golf grip, and a baseball bat, which could arguably pull double duty as a sword in Red Steel. Of course, you’ll still need to pick up that foam donut separately (or bundled in with another game) for the ultimate Excite Truck experience, but hey, you gotta start somewhere.”

Looks like the Wii is built quite well.
