Nintendo Wii Bowling

Recommended Posts

We started playing this on Sunday afternoon and since I`ve been playing I`ve felt like an old man.

I ache all over, I think I`ve over exerted myself.

 

Had a few games with the kids today and my 6 year old son scored 174 points compared to my 184.

 

Had another couple of goes after and scored 266, with 7 strikes to start with.

 

Really chuffed at that :tumbsup:

 

Great fun.

 

What scores have HH members achieved, any 300 scores?

I love this game! If you can find a groove you can get a pretty good score. Problem I have is I'll do really good one game, start out the next doing exactly what I was doing before and instead of throwing strikes I'm suddenly getting splits. I think the highest I've gotten was 191, but I don't have a Wii so I don't get to play that often.

My son and I love Wii bowling. It's a riot. Have you tried the training mode where you try to knock down, like, 100 pins? It's hilariously fun! (And hard.) :)

Okay, I admit it. I want to be a nerd too and and own one of these things and play this. As they cost money and I don't have a hope in hell of ever buying one, who wants to give me theirs?

I play it with the missus .... like BT though sometimes I have a great game then next time doing the same thing I play like a bozo!

Seriously Rockposer .... does the ball get covered in stars (probably something I'll never see :crying: )

Are we talking the bowling game that is part of the Wii Sports disc? I have that. I go back and forth on how good I am. If we are talking about an actual bowling game, I don't have it. I did finally get a guitar for Guitar Hero today though.

Since I don't have a Wii, I usually just throw a bowling ball at my T.V. It can get pretty spendy, perhaps I should have just bought a Wii. :(

I fluked with my score, not quite as good as Rockposer but still pretty good, the next game I`ll be crap, inconsistency is my middle name :tumbsup:

A I have mentioned previously, when you reach Pro status like myself :whistle: Your bowling ball becomes covered in stars.

My mate was raving about the guitar hero, added to my want list, sounds excellent :tumbsup:

For someone like you mate you would love it. For a non musical person like Geoff, maybe not so much :whistle:

    • Shitbomb - Shit in the Sky 😒   I found “Unbreakable” to at least be listenable; “Steel Hearts”… not so much. Unless a 3rd single turns out to be excellent, this will be a big skip. 
    • I thoroughly enjoyed 2017’s “Defying Gravity “, and was hoping for more of the same. “Good Luck Trying” is, unfortunately, not it. Sure hope there’s a lot better tracks to come…
    • Never been into BABYMETAL but am a huge Electric Callboy fan. Been listening to this song over and over again in the last four hours or so. Fucking love it. The Schillo Brothers have created another brilliant video. A lot of bands could learn a lot from them in the video production department.
    • These riffs sound like something from a bad nu-metal album released in the early 2000s. Slow, chuggy, terrible guitar tone and pointless pinch harmonies. The vocals are obviously unintelligible but instrumentally it isn't any good either. Who's going to buy this shit?
    • Zombie Attack - Tankard 
    • Forget Me Not - Bad English
    • 1/10...that is bad. 
    • New single 'Perfume Of The Timeless'. Press release: New Nightwish album Yesterwynde out September 20th 2024! Order the jewel case CD with 28-page booklet now! A magic dwells in every beginning, full of anticipation for what lies ahead, making time briefly stand still. This moment seems almost infinite, filled with the limitless possibilities for the future and the start of a new era. And now, this moment has dawned for NIGHTWISH… The Symphonic metal legend’s new album will see the light of the day on September 20th, 2024. It marks the band’s tenth studio album, following on from the release of Human. :II: Nature. in 2020. Tuomas Holopainen stated about the new album: "Yesterwynde is a fantastical voyage through time, memory, and the better angels of human nature. Three years in the making, we`re thrilled beyond words to soon share our tenth album with the world!" Tracklist: 1. Yesterwynde 2. An Ocean Of Strange Islands 3. The Antikythera Mechanism 4. The Day Of... 5. Perfume Of The Timeless 6. Sway 7. The Children Of 'Ata 8. Something Whispered Follow Me 9. Spider Silk 10. Hiraeth 11. The Weave 12. Lanternlight
