Hello. Scott here. I am a hobbist computer geek, but my profession is airfield electronic maintenance, seasonally in Antarctica.
I have had 4 Wiis in my life. First one was just because they were flying off the shelves and I had the opportunity and so I jumped on it. My friend bought Twilight Princess and we shared time until we parted. I didn't find an awesome game to get into after, so I sold it after it collected some dust. The second had a modchip, before softmods I guess. I only really got it for the fun in installing modchip. I didn't get into any good game, and sold it too.
Then Zelda Skyward Sword was released last year, and I had a lot of free time in Antarctica, and bought the blue Wii. Now at home, the kids like it for netflix, and we will keep this one I hope. It is nearly time to head back to Antarctica so I got an old Wii that will read DVD, to take back with me to finish Zelda (no time to play while at home with 4 kids!)
