It would appear that the Wii shortage is not limited to the console itself, the controller, then the Nuchuck accessory, but also the a certain newly released game that is bundled with a controller accessory.
While there were literally mountains of Guitar Hero III bundles for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation available at various retail outlets, I’ve so far had no luck locating a Wii version to purchase. Either RedOctane is screwing with us “casual” Wii gamers, or executing mad-riffs via a Bluethooth remote is on its way to becoming the hottest thing since watching your family members and friends wave Bluetooth remotes around like hyperactive wizards-in-training.
Here’s hoping that my luck improves, because having to put in effort to spend money is just not worth it.
Rubik’s Cubes, to be exact.
My package of 2x2x2, 4x4x4, and 5x5x5 Rubik’s Cubes (and some extra Cube-accessories) finally arrived in the mail today. These East Sheen cubes don’t feel as hefty as the Rubik’s brand cubes, but they are super smooth to spin, and seems to have already been lightly lubricated. No wonder people recommend these for speed cubing.
The 2x2x2 was pretty trivial to solve, considering it’s just the corners of a standard cube. The 4x4x4 took me a while, but I did manage to do it eventually.
I’ve yet to attempt the 5x5x5 cube, but I’m sure it won’t be easy.
