Nintendo's Wii Game Avatars

I like that you can design your own avatar, but how come you can't find an Asian person's hair color, black? It's ironic that Nintendo is from Japan, and I'm sure some of the people who work there have black hair. Come to think of it, I bet some people who own Wii's have black hair too.

I had to Photoshop my hair and eyebrow color black.

It's fun to design your own avatar. I was able to design my co-workers quickly, but it took me awhile. A co-worker suggested I take a self-portrait, and work from there.

These are some of my co-workers.

I played tennis on the Wii console. It's pretty engaging. There's a slight random delay, but overall, it's pretty satifsying. I played my friend, who is an avid gamer, and I noticed he fumbled with the controller, since he was used to the traditional joystick/game controllers. I also liked the graphics, and how it plays you "the playback," like on television when you watch the games. I was Melo the braided-hair girl, and I had a twin who was on my team too.

I still find this snowboarding game (Nokia sponsored?) a lot more immersive. It debuted at the Come Out And Play Festival. I'm not sure how much the screen size had to do with it's immersiveness, but I was definitely panting and sweating, like I was working out.
