You should be able to set it up just fine. Just make sure that nothing is blocking the sensor bar and that the sports cd is in correctly--you'll get a weird blurping sound if it's not. You'll also need to sync a second remote if you have one, by holding buttons 1 and 2, the little round buttons, down once the Wii is activated. I haven't tried the resort games yet, but when I get a little extra cash I intend to get it--the gyros are supposed to make play a lot more realistic. As far as accessibility goes, Party games 1 is very accessible. You'll just have to memorize where each game is, they don't change position. Shuffleboard, for example, is on the bottom I believe three games from the left--not sure. Party games 2 is harder to set up and the only difference is that it has a football throwing game and other game features are enhanced; for example, every time you release the a button, the puck is released, which doesn't always happen with the original. Wii fit is also very accessible for the most part, but some games like skiing you won't be able to do because you won't know which way to go. The hoola hoop is especially awesome because you can hear which side the hoop falls on and know to lean that way to catch it. The tightrope game is pretty easy too, and you'll hear the chompers--and when they get too loud you jump over them. The only problem is you won't know which way you're leaning. Sonic at the Olympics only has a few games in that collection that are accessible. There are also two Wii games you can play on your PC, both free. One is called Audiodyssey and the other is Darkroom. For that, you'll need a Bluetooth hookup. As far as I know, there is no GTA for the Wii, but my brother-in-law says that they have Bully, which might be worth checking out. They also have Mortal Kombat, which I definitely want to get, and a boxing game called Punchout that Lliam Ervin did a podcast on, but since I missed the show I can't tell you much about it except that you face contender after contender until you become champ.

Subject: [Audyssey] nentendo wii and intro


Hello my name is Sal.
I am glad to be on this list and look forward in  meeting you all.
I was wondering about the wii, I just received one today and have checked out some of the archives on this list and the podcast on be c t. I was wondering if the setting up of the wii out of the box is possible for some one that is blind or is sighted help needed the instructions seem pretty good on the Nintendo site but just curious on some more tips. also besides the sports game what other games are as accessible in playing? has any one played the resort game, and does the wii have that game like ps 3 with the taking of cars and shooting people in the streets of new York?
thanks for the help
Sal
