I hurt. There’s a good chance I won’t be able to use my arms tomorrow.
Ryan got me a new boxing game for Valentine’s day because he knew I was getting very bored with the Wii Fit.
So today I got my first taste of Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout. It’s a weird game where my avatar looks like a bad-ass sailor moon, and the music choices are pumped up, digital remixes of songs intended to get me going – and really, you can’t go wrong with “Eye of the Tiger“, even if it’s played on a synthesizer.
It’s strange, but fun.
From the beginning of my Wii Fit Challenge, I have really enjoyed the boxing game. But I also always wanted it to be better.
With the exception of having the workouts extended to an un-enjoyable, and possibly unreasonable length, Wii Fit boxing doesn’t get any more challenging to correspond with my increased ability.
Each time I would have to watch the “teacher” demonstrate a move. Then I would give it a try for a few rounds, and then wait for further instructions – even if I was just going to be shown the exact same move over again. I don’t know about you, but I like to think I’m pretty smart. If the move is left, right, block, I think I can manage without a demo every time.
After a few training exercises in Gold’s Gym I just got to punch a lot. I like to punch.
They didn’t insult my intelligence.
Along with points (which you get but they’re so inflated that it is hard to appreciate) you’re rewarded with gold!
With that gold you get to buy stuff! I love to buy stuff. I got myself a snazzy new pair of virtual gloves.
Now if only they would let me buy my way out of having such an inflated virtual figure.
