Shannan and Her Brother Throw Down in Wii Boxing

POST #    2349

If there's one thing that's more amusing than actually playing the Nintendo Wii, it's watching people play the Nintendo Wii. It's like any other video game (facial expressions, sounds of joy/frustration) except amplified and exaggerated due to the nature of the motion sensitive controller design. In the Wii Sports title, boxing is pretty amusing to watch. Shannan defeated most challengers in the ring, except for one match where she lost to her brother. She even managed to K.O. someone on their first knockdown. The key to Shannan's success seemed to be punching as frantically as humanly possible without breathing until knocking someone down, being knocked down, or the end of a round.

Sounds pretty much like my wife's key to success too. Basically the Wii version of the typical "mash all the buttons and wiggle the joystick around randomly" tactic that she also effectively uses in normal fighting games. I'm still trying to figure out how you do a KO on the first knockdown. I suspect it's being able to land a couple of clean roundhouse punches instead of the simpler jabs.

unfortunately for shannan, this does not work during tennis. that's painfully obvious when you watch her play.
