Wii, Playstation, Save Game Progress – Annoying

Recently I picked up Tiger Woods 09 for Wii.  Here is my interaction every time I go to save my progress:

Wii:  “Do you want to save Now?”

Me:  “Yes”

Wii: “User Steve already exists.  Do you want to overwrite?”

Me: “Yes”

Wii: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes”

Wii:  “Saving.  Do not turn off power or hit reset.”

Wii: “Save Complete”

Me: “OK”

After five dialog boxes I finally have saved my progress and can interact with the menu again.  What a pain.

Wii Sports Scoring Glitch

I’ve been playing Wii Sports for a few weeks now and my ongoing tennis score keeps rising. It got me wondering what the highest skill level score one could achieve on the game. A quick google search says that 2399 is the highest possible score you can get. I’m not quite there, but during my progress I noticed a glitch in the graph that shows you your progress. The graph actually isn’t large enough to contain the valid data points:

Scrabble on ESPN

There has to be something other than scrabble that ESPN could have on at 3 PM on a Sunday. Maybe if scrabble was on ESPN2 I could understand a little more. Or maybe if it was the National Scrabble Finals, like the Spelling Bee, it would merit being televised. As I type this, Lindsay asks “Isn’t there football on?”

Drinking games cause higher BAC?: you don’t say

Jared: MSN Article: College Drinking Games Lead to Higher Blood Alcohol Levels
Steve: haha, love the title
Jared: doesn’t really say much that couldn’t be said for drinking games
Steve: “The researchers found that playing drinking games, having a personal history of binge drinking, attending a party with many other intoxicated people, and attending a themed event all predicted higher blood alcohol levels.”
Steve: you don’t say
Jared: i know
Jared: i mean really
Steve: who paid for that study
Jared: and i bet writing with a blue pen results in a high chance your document will be in blue
Jared: what a waste of money
