Wii Mario Kart and Big Brain Academy

Hey hey folks,
Welcome to another episode of the Warped Zone.

Yeah it's been a while since i posted. I've been real busy with work so I havn't had much time to play games.
I did pickup Wii Mario Kart. That game is killer. Twelve characters dukin it out on some kickass surfaces and well lack of surfaces.
If you want a great single player game or group game, this is a total BUY. The new addition of the wheel is great. It takes a bit to get used to but as soon as you do get warmed up to it (which doesn't take a long time) it's pretty rad.
I still use Toad as my character and now i get to use a baby carriage to kick everybody's ass with and the whole morphing into a Bullet Bill and shooting across the track is my fave part. There are some new characters ie Waluigi. If you have been a fan of this franchise, or even if you never were, grab this game.

My brain has been feelin a bit dull lately, so i decided to grab Big Brain Academy. I put this game off for quite a while. I mean i had Brain age so i thought that was enough but i took the plunge and grabbed BBA. I'm so glad i did. I actually love this game better than Brain Age. From patterns to memory to computing and more, this game makes learning fun. You start off by going to the Academy school office and enrolling as a student. You enroll as your Mii character and then you're off.
I really enjoy the part where they show you a number of birds in cages and a number of empty cages. They toss a sheet over them and shuffle them. You have to guess where the birds end up.
At the end of the game your brain is measured.
Even if you hate school, buy this game. BBA really does make learning fun....If you have young kids, buy this game they'll love it. I know my niece and nephew did.

Anyway, that's it for now.
I'll see you all next time in the Warped Zone.
