Wii Fit Experiment: Sit on It!

Wii Fit Experiment:

For my first "outside the norm" experiment with Wii Fit, I decided to try and simulate what it may be like for someone with limited or no use of their legs to use the Wii Balance Board. For these tests, I assumed a person to have use of their abdominal muscles and both arms.

These tests are in no way scientific outside of a little creative math use and it should be noted that I am not a medical professional of any kind. Please take caution and be sure to warm up when trying any physical activity mentioned in this article.

The hardest part for me was the initial registration. Obviously, the Balance Board was meant to be stood on during this test. At first I started by telling Wii Fit that I was 2' 10" (87 cm) tall, roughly how tall I am sitting down and a bit more than half my actual height of 5' 6" (168 cm). More...

Pop Review

FULL review at The Able Gamer

EDITED review can be found at GameSpot

When I first started playing Pop, I said "Seven dollars? They can't be serious". After putting a fair amount of time into it I feel that the price point is fair. For me, the inclusion of online leaderboards alone justifies the price. Pop is a game that I've enjoyed playing in short bursts and one that has also sucked me in for a few hour plus sessions. If you're in the market for a simple light gun ****shooter, or you've exhausted the fun that can be had in Wii Play target shooting, Pop is probably right up your alley.
