Nintendo Wii


Nintendo Wii.

Back in December, me and my brothers were having school holiday. And before that, we already planned on buying Wii for holiday entertainmet. And there we have it. We bought Wii back in December 20th, 2009. We bought it for IDR 2.3millions (around USD 240) and we also bought another wiimote plus nunchuck for IDR 450k (around USD 50).


Wiimote and nunchuck.

Overall, Wii is a small console with small capabilities. I heard that Wii has the weakest engine out of 3 current generation console. Wii machine and the games also have a bad graphics (I’m not comparing it to PS3 since it’s totally not fair XD), and its not HD. So why did we choose Wii? The main reason we bought it is Wii's main point: motion gaming. Out of 3 console, only Wii exploits motion gaming the most. We just want to try it out and get a feel for it. The other reason we bought Wii is to enjoy Nintendo exclusive games. Also, as NDS players, they want to get a feel of the Wii version of the games they played in NDS.

Console discussion won't be complete if we're not talking about the games. Wii games so far is pretty much filled with party games or mini games in console size. The games are pretty much want to exploit the motion gaming for sure. I myself isn't very interested with the games, since I only play along with my bros. My soul is still in heavy gaming of PS3. XD


Wii pirated games.

Anyway, after buying we already have almost 20 games. Is that too much? No.... Since we live in Indonesia, we have to bought nothing but pirated copy of the games. You'll find Wii and X360 original games nowhere in Indonesia. But hey, the copies only cost a dollar (USD) each, and the first time we bought Wii, the store gave us 10 games as bonus. Here’s a list of the games we have:

  • Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World
  • Wii Sports
  • Soul Calibur Legends
  • Pokemon Battle RevolutionPhantom Brave We Meet Again
  • Marble Saga Kororinda
  • Cabela’s Outdoor Adventures 2010
  • Trauma Center Second OpinionValhall Knights Eldar Saga
  • Super Paper Mario
  • Mario Party 8
  • Cooking Mama World Kitchen
  • Rayman Raving Rabbids
  • WWF Smackdown vs. RAW 2010
  • Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
  • The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess

So far, i got only 3 games played: Wii Sports, Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World, and Soul Calibur Legends. While my bros are looking forward for Monster Hunter 3.


Tennis in Wii Sports.

Wii Sports is surely just for fun games. This game main purpose is to greatly exploit Wii motion gaming. I myself enjoyed playing Tennis and Baseball in Wii Sports with my brother. This game is also good for burning my fat. XD


I’m not too far away from this point.

Tales of Symphonia is my first heavy game in Wii. I chose this because i like Tales series, but too bad this game is just as good as i expected, since it only have 2 main characters and the rest of your party are your monsters. This game is an RPG with catching / breeding monster system included in it. You have to catch good monster if you want to survive. I hate the kind of game that exploit monster catching / breeding, that’s a minus point of this game for me. Fortunately, i can still play this game together with my brother (Tales series games: able to play with more than 1 player in the battle). Seeing this game made me want to say: “give me back my old Tales!!”, since i enjoyed playing Tales of Eternia more than playing this Tales.


Sophitia, one of the hottie in Soul Calibur.

The last game is Soul Calibur Legends. I only played this game only for few minutes. Only played the tutorial part using Siegfried, beaten Cervantes, and it’s over… Didn’t have too much time to continue it. I like this game because this game used motion gaming system. You have to move your character using your nunchuck and swing your sword by moving your Wiimote. Interesting!


Even Yuki and Achakura enjoy playing Wii, why can't i?

I can’t really give a high point for Wii, but i also can’t give a low point for Wii. PS3 has its own games and strong points: HD, great machine specification, and great exclusive games, while Wii too has its own strong points: motion gaming, fun party and mini games. So yeah, I think I’ll be enjoying Wii as much as i enjoy my PS3.

Well, that’s it for now… See you at the next post!


  1. lol agree with the tales part haha

  2. I never heard that you have Wii? Haha.

  3. lol...bout the old tales stuff not the wii part

  4. I thought you played Wii version of the ToS. XD

  5. I have the Wii for more than 2 years now and already u have more games then me. :D

    I'm up to chapter 6 of ToS: Dawn of the New World. I watched my bro played the original ToS so I have an idea what's going on, storywise. xD

    Depending on what games I pick up, I either be playing heavyly on either one of them until it's complete. I try to complete them in a timely order fashion while enjoying the game at the same time but with some many new games coming out and so many I wanna play, it's getting harder and harder.

    Speaking about new games, I picked up bayanetta yesterday. Can't wait to dig into her, I mean it. :P

  6. Yeah, more games because i bought pirated games. XD

    I too am doing what you're doing. By playing the games chronologically. But yeah, more games = more stack of unopened / unplayed games.

  7. how could u support pirated? D:
    it's like buying pirated pvc :p

    happy belated bday.

  8. I know how bad bootleg PVC is but well, in Indonesia you'll find anything but pirates (except ps3).

    Anyway, thanks for birthday wishes. :D
