Nintendo Unveils Wii Party

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced a combination of Mario Party and Wii Sports today with a new offering called Wii Party. The upcoming concoction will feature games such as the “International Vacation Game,” “Mii Jyan” roulette and “Balance Ship.” Each game will of course have your Mii starring in it somewhere. “As you know, ‘Wii something’ are the titles that we use only with software that Nintendo has developed exclusively for Wii with the aim to make them marquee titles for Wii,” a translation reads from a presentation given to investors by Iwata. “We are developing this game with the aim to make it a marquee party game for Wii.”

This take on the Mario Party series swaps your Mii for Mario and his pals. It adds a few board games and other puzzlers. Considering the success of the Wii series of games, this has a definite shot of being successful. Is this something that will interest you? How do you think it will compare to the Mario Party series?

There’s always a party going on when it’s time to grab some new software for your computer.

How Do You Manage Your Time?

It seems as though we have more to do every day. There is never enough time to get it all done, and we find ourselves becoming overwhelmed quite often. There has to be a better way of doing things than to keep adding to the next day’s to-do list. We shouldn’t go to bed and lie there unable to sleep because we’re making a mental checklist of everything we have to squeeze in when the sun rises again.

For some people, learning to manage their time effectively is a daunting task. It takes time to get organized… and time is something we have precious little of. I know that I personally keep myself in check by using iCal. If I have something important to attend to, I note it down on my calendar. I spend so much of my day on the Internet due to the type of work I do, though, that it’s nearly impossible not to get distracted. The next thing I know, I’ve read six stories and all of the resulting comments. It’s not that I don’t want to know what else is going on in the world. I simply need to keep myself on task and set aside specific times to catch up on what others are doing.

How do you manage your time? Have you found the magical answer we all need in order to help us become more focused? If so, I’d sure like to hear about it.
