Big Brain Academy and other assorted Wii rants

Wanyas recently got us Big Brain Academy for our birfdays and it's a really good game. EXCEPT for the mulitplayer aspect. First of all, like Wario Warez, AND Raymond's Raving Rabbits AND baseball on Wii Sports, the games aren't truely multiplayer. You take turns playing the games, passing the stupid controller back and forth (which means you aren't wearing your safety strap!). I don't know why anyone would make that decision, but with so many games acting the same way, i can only assume it is a deliberate attempt to make me feel hated.

But Big Brain Academy went a step further. In order to play the game with your Mii, you have to enroll yourself as a student. Generally we've had our friends first take the exam and get their brains measured as a way to familiarize themselves with the mini-games before playing "multiplayer". But then we found out that you can only have 8 students enrolled at one time. Which meant in order for my 8th friend to play, we would have had to delete someone else's record. What the hell?

Oh, and Super Paper Mario had way too much "plot" and not nearly enough arcade action, and Red Steel gets pretty repetitious after the 3rd level. And the mini-games in Monkey Ball suck and/or are impossible to control.

Looks good on you, though.

They should make a Metroid game that's exactly like this Zelda game i'm playing on the Wii except more open ended. And then i could play it.
