Wii On the Internet & The Last day of Work

The Legend of ZeldaI promise that this will be my last entry for a while on how great the Wii is. Today Nintendo released for download a web browser based on Opera for the Nintendo Wii.

As Michael has commented in the previous entry, this allows browsing of the internet through the console on the TV. It's a little tedious having to type using a point-and-click on-screen keyboard, but once you have your regular sites in the favourites you shouldn't really need to do it all that much.

I also recently received an early Christmas present of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii. Thanks to those who got it for me. I separately purchased the game guide for it: over 400 pages of full colour glossy goodness, which has already proven that it's worth it's considerable weight in gold.

Today was the last day of work for the year as we begin the Christmas and New Year break. It's been a funny year in terms of work, but again i've learnt so much this year.

I'm looking forward to the time off. Discounting sick days and public holidays, this will be the first break that I have taken from work since we got back from our honeymoon in March. Come to think of it, i've never gone this long without having a holiday, which is quite strange now that I really think about it.

It's not long now until the end of the year, and you know what that means: end of year review! yay!

  1. You need a guide???

    *hanging his head in shame* poor form lucas, and you call yourself a gamer.

    i finished it. it took 40+hours but i finished it. I haven't completed it though, i still have a fair few side quests to do

  2. firstly, I never said I needed a guide, but it is darn useful to have.

    Secondly, i've never called myself a gamer. I'm more of the casual game-enjoying type :p

    And thridly, the guide rocks!

  3. The guide is awesome, great poster, beautiful artwork and it's full coour! 40 hours, wow you blitzed it. I plan on doing it in around 60 hours. Anyways, to the point..

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

  4. that was only the main quest and few of the side quests, the ones that i could do without going too far out of my way. I now have to do the rest.

    come now lucas you wouldn't have bought it if you didn't think you needed it, casual or not you are still a gamer.

    i put a challenge to you to not use the guide from now till you finish it, now i have no way of policing this so we'll have to go on the honour code.

  5. Nah, I love using the guide. It points out so many things that I would have missed or taken hours to figure out.

    Thus it has allowed me to enjoy the game more rather than get insanely frustrated at it at times.
