Wii Controller Certainly not Indestructable

Been a pretty shitty day for home electronics and schtuff.

Decided to update some of the light switches and power sockets throughout the house today. Have been doing so since we moved in periodically with a good deal of success. Today however, was a different story. Replaced a combo outlet, (switch and outlet) and when I flicked the breaker back on... discovered that I had a short which prevented the breaker from being re-set. Have hauled the whole works out about three or four times, and even called my dad for some advice... and nothing has worked. goddammit.

Went upstairs to blow off some steam on Wii boxing... and during the 2nd round of my third fight, my right hand froze as the Wii-mote locked up. Not sure if there's something internal broken, or what, but I guess I now get a second shot at testing out Nintendo's warranty service. Shouldn't be any problems if it's as smooth as my first go-around.

To bad you didn't break those classic nintendo controllers. I think they are made of Blades of Steel, maybe from Hamilton.

Here's a question for you to answer next blog:

Computer And Video Games asks the tough question: is the Wii's magic gone? After the flurry of excitement around the launch, lackluster ports and a persistent inability for Nintendo to keep units on the shelves has made it hard for gamers to sustain their enthusiasm for the system. It doesn't help that most of the good games slated for this year won't be out for months. In some cases, there's doubt they'll even make it out this year: Reggie Fils-Aime appears to be backpedaling on Metroid Prime 3 by Christmas, which would be a shame. GigaGamez has additional commentary. Are you still as excited about the Wii as you were when it launched?
