Some positives about the Wii for me:

1. The balance games. Nearly all of them. I love those.

2. The step aerobics are pretty good.

3. Differing levels for skill sets.

4. The ability for a single unit to be programmed with multiple Miis.

5. Its memory for record-keeping.

Now a few of the more significant gripes and inadequacies:

1. Short duration of workouts. Not long enough to work up a sweat.

2. Not broad enough of a selection of most everything.

3. Inability to skip some of the sillier inanities and get to the action.

So we can gripe about the inadequacies of the Wii, and don't kid yourself, I've got my own laundry list, including inane and irrelevant features like "why doesn't the wii fit balance board dome in colors like purple?" etc.

But supposedly if we think on the POSITIVE things, we're less likely to produce cortisol or other stress hormone monsters that make us want to eat up everything in site. Right? Didn't I read that somewhere on the Spark?? Or as some dude said - "Laughter is the best medicine" .... so that's positive, right?

Sooooo the thing I love about my Wii Fit system, so far, is that - at least, with the Wii Fit Plus game is like when the chicka is instructing the Yoga moves, the subtitle is just on it regardless - no coy turning it on or off. That helps me a lot (except, of course, the obvious, when my head is upside down and twisted around my behiney on the opposite side away from the TV screen

Now, I can't say that subtitling is available for all the Nintendo Wii games, particularly with the third-party vendors licensed to produce a Wii game (which would be like the various Star Wars: The Force, or Zumba, etc). which we aren't specifically discussing in this team, but my son plays the Force and the Force: 2 on the Wii, and they do have the subtitle on/off option. It just now occurred to me, I've not checked on the Zumba Wii game to see if it has that option, and I can't remember if I've seen it on the Just Dance. I know there's a lyrics on option, so maybe that's what they thought to do? I've not played it in awhile.

I'm sure I'll think of other positive things, but just thought I'd throw this out there as a potential topic.

Oh and we might consider adding our console numbers, for those who want to share that and trade Mii's across the cyberspace, maybe not inside the message forum, where they tend to roll on down, but maybe in the Team Announcements? or someplace where they can just be posted and people can go look at em and not have to go chasing all through the messages to find console numbers posted a year or two ago by members? This is the situation in the other Wii Fit Plus team that I'm a member of... so it's tricky finding everyone's console numbers and their on-screen Mii Names (which I will need to change because mine is still MSDRPEPPERSP I think?? hah.).

Just a thought.
