|Ready to workout!|
One thing I really didn't like? That smug avatar that runs in front of you during the basic short distance run. She keeps turning around and waving at me while I'm running. Also, I'm not supposed to pass her during the run, so she keeps speeding up whenever I get close to her. She's like the obnoxious person at the gym who always looks over at your treadmill to see how fast you're going so she can always go faster. I hate her already.
They really mean it when they tell you not to try to pass the avatar though. One, it's hard because she keeps speeding up every time you do. Two, you're going to look ridiculous in the process. I ran like Shaggy and Scooby to pass her, and my hair fell out of its ponytail. My score went down, too. It was a little frustrating.
I also tried the locus focus. That thing is like something out of an H.P. Lovecraft story. You cross your legs and try to keep absolutely still on the Wii board. The only thing on the screen is a candle whose flame shakes when you move. There is a small area illuminated by the candle. The rest is complete darkness. After a couple of seconds, you hear footsteps getting progressively closer. You still don't see anything. They move closer. A moth flies towards the flames. Somethings makes unintelligible noises. The footsteps move closer, then away. The moth flies into the flame, and you hear footsteps moving towards you again. I don't know what happens after that because I was too busy getting the hell off the Wii board before Cthulu popped through the screen to eat my soul.
All in all, though, it was a pretty good experience. One of my friends told me about a Wii Just Dance game that I really want to try out. Do you have any fun ways to get into shape? I'd love to hear from you!
