Last night, John and Simon came round. For the first time since I bought the console, we managed to try out some 3-player gaming on the Wii, thanks to John buying two more control pads.

The reason I bought the Wii in the first place. Very disappointing in multiplayer mode. Absolutely nothing like the original Perhaps if we gave it more time, we might be able to get used to the complex controls and new levels, but it certainly lacks the charm and instant, easy to play game play of the 1997 classic. We soon gave up.

Mario Kart
According to the TV adverts, a favourite in the Redknapp and JLS households. Also well liked by both John and myself. Simon, who is about as much a fan of racing games as John is of football, was a lot less enthusiastic. However, after forcing it upon him and pouring pizza and cider down his throat, I think he eventually started to enjoy it. Although he’ll never admit to it, of course.

Mario Kart is a lot more fun and has retained the appeal of the SNES classic. It is still extremely enraging, especially when you are within a split-second of crossing the finish line, only to be hit by a blue shell from a mate about 8 places behind you.

  • 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.
