A bell-ringing game... wow, who knew? ...do you have to pick up the right bells and then shake the wiimote?

There's 8 bells and their notes together make up the tunes. You just have 2 of them at any one time and really just have to shake the nunchuck or remote at the right time. It's fair to say I'm not a hardcore gamer!

That happens to me too on wii bowling but I don't know about real life as I've only done real bowling a few times but I'll have to check it out next time I play. Also we were round at humblebee's last night, playing on his wii, and it turns out the same happens to him.

you can adjust your little mii's stance though, can't you, so you still hit the pins.

Yeah, I have to massively compensate for my ball travelling to the left. Add a little spin though and it becomes a deadly weapon!

Somewhere in here amongst all this talk of various people's balls heading to the left, there is a joke to be made, I'm sure of it.

I've just spent the last four days of my holidays playing De Blob at my friend's place.
so addictive. my thumb is sore. seriously, it feels bruised.
and have been having De Blob dreams at night.
my only complaint is that it take about an hour to clear a level and have your progress saved. that's a big time commitment. No wonder my thumb hurts.

I only ever use my Wii for the Fit but now I'm all curious about other games. I wish they weren't so expensive.

"Pre owned" games, known to normal people as second hand, are the way to go... when lucky you can pick up titles at as little as a third of the price.

But my advice is to just buy games you know you want, having read about them as such, as there are turkeys out there to gobble up your money.

Mmm, I'm keeping an eye out for a cheap copy of that one. Glad to hear it's good.

we got it from the wii shop for 500 points (or £3.50)! it's just like the original game and you use the controller in a similar way too.

Ah, I thought you meant Super Mario Galaxy... we have one of the old Mario games, the first one where you can fly, because it's a part of Astrid's childhood.

It is fun. We have that Paper Mario too, which does a good job of feeling like a proper Mario game.

Damn, one of our wiimotes won't reconise when we tilt it anymore, which is no good for mariokart... I'm not best pleased about this.

Mariokart arrived a few days ago. That shopping mall level is fantastic!

I've been playing on my wii loads again lately thanks to the balance board. Raving Rabbids TV Party is so much fun I usually end up in tears of laughter. My dad got me wii music for Xmas too but I've not even opened the box yet. Hee. I love my wii.
Give over.

If anyone else finds their wiimote stops tilting left and right and won't do things like Mariokart and Wii tennis, apparently you have to turn it to the left so the buttons are pointing left, and then give it three slightly forceful whacks on a firm surface. That's what the helpline people said and ours works fine now.
