An offer you can't refuse

So far the Wii has justified it's existence in my home, giving me a new exciting way to exercise, but that's not to say I haven't been thoroughly disappointed with the selection of games available. They're all fun, yet shallow, and simply lacking any real lasting appeal (like me).

One of the top games, Rayman: Raving Rabids, seems to just exploit the system, and gets tired quickly. Even the highly anticipated Tiger Woods 07 seemed like a stripped down version of the same game that we saw on the last-gen consoles months ago, and at this point is more frustrating than fun, which I suppose proves that it truly is lifelike.

Let's face it, the best game available is probably Wii Sports, which comes packaged with it. Or that is to say it "was", until now.

Godfather: Blackhand edition is crazy delicious, the trailer helps illustrate how fun the game mechanics are, and they truly are. I beat this game in about 3 days, and even after finishing off the in depth storyline, the tedious tidbits I needed to accomplish to have it "100%" complete were pretty still fun.

Now I've never seen the movies, though I probably will tomorrow, but from what I understand the game follows the movies fairly well, so the storyline is pretty riveting.

I also rented "Cooking Mama", it's sort of a party game wrapped around the premise of cooking. It's basically Iron Chef on DMT.
