Last year we finally caught up with the video game frenzy when we got our first video game console. After lots of research and asking our friends we decided to get the Wii. And right at the time we decided it was time to buy it, the new Wii Red promotion arrived, great timing! Our son had been playing Mario Bros at a friends house and he really wanted the game, so he was very happy when he saw the box arrive at our front door.
My kids are small, 7 and 3 years old, and I think Wii is perfect for our family. There are tons of video games available for old and young and we always have a good time when we play, the only hard part is when my son has to turn it off.
Lately we have been enjoying Mario Kart. It comes in two options, Racing and Battle, I like the racing better, my kids like them both. Mario Kart allows up to 4 players (perfect for us!) and is a game where you choose your character, your vehicle (from motorcycles to fancy cars), the number of races per game, and your track. Tracks may take you to the mountains, to the beach, to the mall, to castles, or immerse you in fantastic places, like the super challenging rainbow road. Your character races faster with the help of special powers you can collect on the track, my favorite? The bullet, it advances your character like a speeding bullet toward the front of the race! Mario Kart is one of my favorite games and every time I let my son play he chooses it. I have to stop what I’m doing and play for a little with him. I love this time!
If you are searching for a videogame console, I can recommend the Wii, it is very easy to use, super fun to play, and of course I have to mention, you can stream Netflix movies on it through your internet connection!
And if you are thinking about getting one, this is a great time to do it, Nintendo has reduced the price and now you can purchase a brand new Wii for just $149.99! And that’s not all, Wii comes in black or white and with the popular Mario Kart.
What do you think? Cool ha? Do you have a Wii? What is your favorite game?
