    The teaming up of Xue and Vien is legendary. I remember watching a couple of their games. Vien plays at the net as the lady role and Xue is at the back. Once again this just shows the level of shame from Max Power has no bounds.

    How good is Wii?

    Hi

    Don't mean to disrupt the flow of Max Powers'A grade adventure story...
    But someone mentioned Wii badminton.

    Anyone know how good it is?:rolleyes: If this is comparable to the tennis in Wii Sport, that not bad.

    Sorry if off topic...

    Andy, How come you got the login name of AndrewS? AndyS was taken eh.

    Sorry, haven't tried it myself. Vien has a Wii, so he may have.

    Vien you make it sound like she was Fijian (is that how you spell it?). Trying to confuse everyone again.

    Two names is not a lot. I actually can't remember why now; that was quite a few years ago.

    If you're referring to the one sold as Sports Island here, I tried it, but it's not great. Controls are a bit iffy.

    e.g. when doing net shot, you can't do "slow" movements (e.g. just moving the racquet to position) - it won't register.

    Takes a bit getting used to and there's still that "lag" in playing shots.

    Overall, quite OK, but a bit disappointing.

    Might see some of you on the JTULTRA/MUBC, if you're playing on Sundays (I'm playing C grade MD :)

    You might see everyone except Max Power, he will be hanging around the D2 courts.

    Thanks Hagane
    I checked out the youtube video (thanks to Vien). It looked fun. The jump smash move should help me get one step closer to my dream.

    But I also checked out games rating web sites. Their comments confirm yours. I might buy it if it gets really cheap.

    Did some research and a weekend badminton in sydney will cost ...
    $65 for flight on jetstar from avalon to sydney .. and another
    $65 to fly back from sydney to avalon
    $130 per night for twin share accommodation, maybe 3 nights so ($390 or $195 each if 2 people)
    $60 per day spending money, and/or $500 per night if you're intending to visit sydneys famous red light district :)
    plus tournament cost maybe $40

    So roughty $505 each for a D grade trophy from UNSW .. I think its worth it :)
