A Little Weekend Shopping

Just got back from a little weekend shopping. Swung by Walmart to pick up a Wii MotionPlus, as I needed one to go along with review copies of Grand Slam Tennis and Tiger Woods 10 that recently arrived from EA. Also had a 25% off coupon for Borders, so went ahead and grabbed Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher novels, ‘The Last Wish’ and ‘Blood of Elves’ — I’ve been itching for something to read since finishing up the Dragon Age prequel novel a few months back. Had also been wanting to see Taken, and it was on sale so went ahead and grabbed that too. Anyone see that or read The Witcher books? Any thoughts?

As for the Wii MotionPlus, I’ve tested it a bit with both sports titles and so far it seems to work as advertised. It’s not perfect, but it definitely makes swinging the tennis racket/golf club feel even more natural and precise. Will have reviews coming up for those games, and will probably examine the MotionPlus in more depth once more games start to take advantage of it. Right now I think Virtua Tennis 2009 is the only other game out there that supports it until Wii Sports Resort drops in a couple weeks. Already reviewed the PS3 version of VT 2009, but may give the Wii version a shot just to see how it compares to Grand Slam Tennis‘ implementation.
