It seems like only yesterday when those few lucky thousand were unwrapping what would soon be the new standard in video games. All the excitement and glee surrounding the Nintendo Wii was phenomenal; wireless, infrared-sensored controls? Amazing! I know I had to show everyone who came over how much cooler it was to play tennis on a screen rather than in real life. However, a few weeks later, the thrill sort of died down, and I abandoned my Wii-mote and reverted back to my Xbox 360. Thus begun a period of neglect I referred to as "Wii-guilt".

But all that changed as soon as Mario Strikers Charged came out on the market on July 30th.
