    Anyone else get it? I got it today, and it's pretty fun. It took my mom and I 20 minutes to find out that the balance board was facing the wrong way, lol. So far my favorite event is the Basic Run. They should've had skateboarding as an event!

    Just finished doing a set of each aerobic event. Pretty cool but its mostly for my wife as a weight loss tool.

    Can't wait for Skate It.

    My girlfriend pre-ordered it at EB Games... after waiting all day for them to phone, she called them and was promptly told that they didn't get enough to cover their preorders and they were selling them to those who preordered first.

    She was quite pissed as this is the first game she'd been really looking forward to, so we went out to find a copy. We ended up finding it at HMV (they had several copies, we doubted many people bothered looking there for it) and then went back to EB Games to cancel the preorder and get her money back for it. They then told her that they had only gotten 7 copies in and they had had 9 preorders (I suppose she was #8). The funny thing is that there was an older lady in there looking for it as well who was angry at them not having it, and she overheard us and we directed her to HMV for it. So, all in all, because they couldn't cover their preorders (or even phone the 2 people who weren't going to get it to let them know), we cost them two sales.

    She's doing some steping rhythm thing now, I just set my Mii up and let her go at it. I'll probably spend a little time with it, but she's the one who really wanted it and will use it more more than I will.

    Didn't buy, but there were a lot of people at Target yesterday morning. I hope they come out with some cool games for it, otherwise 90 bucks for a peripheral isn't worth it!

    i've heard bad things about this 'game', in that measuring BMI is fundamentally flawed, and there have been report of young girls being called fat and getting depressed. saw that coming.

    I had to take a peak in this thread to see what would people discuss in a thread about Wii Fit... I mean, would it be, "OH, I love the part where...." or, "Can anyone help me get past that one part where you have to jump in place," or "Any cheat codes?"

    We were able to get one, but I haven't had time to play it yet :( 

    Hopefully sometime this weekend, because we all know my fat ass needs all the help it can get!

    I'm 5'7" and 137 lbs. Sorry.

    I played it last night and so far the jury is out. Some things felt forced, and so far there aren't any challenges against the CP. I personally wanted a workout challenge where I had to do more pushups, sit-ups, etc. than a CP opponent. I did the pushup to plank routine and got 100 points. If that is the only indicator, than I pretty much maxed out the system, and I won't be able to really see my progress.

    Using BMI as the measuring stick pretty much sucks. If I was 170 lbs and ripped, it would consider me obese. It gives me no incentive to become more muscular or tone. It just suggested that I maintain my weight. Well, I've done that with 0 exercise, so that won't be hard.

    I actually liked the skiing mini games quite a bit. They were difficult but rewarding. The tree pose was embarassing. :lol

    i didn't get it. i dunno if i will. i am, however, eating a 4 egg omelet... loaded with cheese, bacon, and ham, with some chives, and a sprinkle of garlic powder just to make my breath even more terrible than it would have been had i not added it.

    I smell a lawsuit.
    They really should teach these games to lie.
    It would stop stupid people being offended by the obvious.
