I went to gamestop today..and they had a Wii you could play. My friend and I handed are drivers licences over, and he gave us two controls and let us play excite truck. So we go over, and say screw the tutorial and start playing. At first we couldn't figure out how to steer, then after a good minute I said, HEY...If you go up and down you turn!!! So my friend and I spent ~1 hour playing the game. Well...we were always holding the controlor like a sword, and there were mutliple people that walked in and were talking about their Wii and multiple people that just walked by and watched us for a momment....Now, for all of you who own excite truck....you guys know why this is funny...but check this out.
We go back to the counter and get our ID's back. Then we just start talking with the guy. Well, ten minutes into the conversation, I ask the guy why the controlers were kinda messed up and why we had to go down and up to steer instead of aiming the controlor left and right. Thats when he pointed out that we played the game for an hour, holding the frickin controler wrong. You were supposed to hold it with two hands and one on each end of the stick and steer that way.....we walked and and just started laughing so hard. I don't think I have ever been so stupid playing a game before lmao....SO...if you see a tutorial!!!! USE IT
Although, even though we weren't using the control correctly, it was still quite fun. However, the only game I would want it for is Zelda so I think I am going to hold off getting it and buy an Xbox 360 for now with a bunch of games...
Just wanted to share my Wii story
