Beat me to it!

Probably in for Tales of MI (or, rather, definitely in, just not sure if I'm doing Wii or PC).  Played Musketeers on the PC, and it's a fun, tough little platformer.  I'm curious to see if they've improved it at all for the Wii.

Also in for Sports Resort.

Bought Wii Sports Resort last night and played with the family. LOVE it. Favorite game so far is Frisbee dog but there are many other great ones.  Going to play this game a ton. Haven't tried playing solo yet but should be good solo too. In fact, going to go play solo right now. Work be damned.

Frankly, I was surprised I enjoyed it so much. Even some of the things that sounded stupid, like basketball where you don't actually control where your players go... turned out fun. One of the best treats is the 100 pin bowling game. That may have been my favorite game from the original Wii Sports, but it was only part of training in that game. I bet Nintendo heard from a lot of people wanting that fleshed out.

There's good variety, not many clunkers. I happily recommend it.

I think I'd like Resort, but I know I'd want a second Motion Plus.  I'd rather get one with a game than buy it separately, and the only game I want other than Resort that comes with one is potentially Red Steel 2.  Which just got delayed.  So it looks like I'll be waiting until next year to get Resort.

Yes, you can buy the newest version of Tiger Woods by itself, or packaged in with a Wii Motion Plus.

Yes, this thing.  I have less than no interest in golf, so I'd rather get the MP by itself than get it with Tiger.  But really, I'd rather just get it with a game that I want.  Hence waiting until there are two of those.
