I have been playing the Nintendo Wii a lot lately. A recent television advertisement caused me great excitement. It was for a remake of the 1997 videogame classic, GoldenEye.

John came round on Friday and we made the trip to Asda to purchase the prestige title. On first impressions, I am pleased. It isn’t a direct, jazzed-up port of the Nintendo 64 gem. Instead, it offers some new features.

Due to the style of the game, it is recommended a ‘classic’ or Gamecube controller is used, as opposed to the Wii Remote and nunchuck which is packaged with the console. Unfortunately, I only have one Gamecube pad, so poor Johnny had to do battle with a fiddly Wii remote. New pads will soon be purchased/stolen/made, so both GoldenEye and Mario Kart can be played.

In other Wii Wii news, I suffered another bout of excitement at the discovery of another upcoming title – Donkey Kong Country. It seems like Nintendo are bringing back all the games I loved as a kid.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
