The briggity briggity Brawl & Bowl

Over at my brother-in-law’s house the other night for one purpose: to Brawl, and Brawl hard. That goal was met in spades, and I really had a great time.

I have to confess I had more fun than my earlier outing atĀ Super Smash Bros. Brawl, simply because I actually won some matches – including my first on-line.

Kirby and Meta Knight were my warriors of choice, and using the Gamecube controller I was actually able to set up some moves and use them. I’ve tried using the Wii controllers, but I just couldn’t get comfortable.

After the Brawl, things mellowed out a little and my father-in-law joined us for some bowling. I don’t know why, but bowling on the Wii is fun – really fun. I don’t understand it…but I’m not going to fight it!

We also busted out a littleĀ Wii Play, and then it was a few more games of Brawl until midnight.

It’s not the marathon sessions I pulled off in college, but any night gaming with friends and family is always a good time.
