    Okay, how fucking weird is this.

    Today I'm doing my normal weight lifting. And I was standing by my Wii while doing it, and, I thought of something. They should make a Wii game that involves weight lifting, and the Wiimote would fit in a weight, and it keeps count of how many you do via the motion sensor. They can come out with different pounds, etc.

    How cool, haha.

    I will hopefully try and get these. But if they're only for Wii-fit, then I don't know. If they came out with a normal game that uses them, then hell yeah I'll get them.

    I really don't understand why someone would want something like this, when they can just as easily get a dumbell.

    I guess some people just have to be watching a TV screen even when they're exercising.

    Well it'll be cool if they make games utilising this, that way there'll actually be a point to this thing lol

    The video game exercising fad is getting out of hand. Nothing will beat good old fashion exercising. ( Running, sit ups, pull ups, push ups is all you need) Heck you don't even need weights to get in shape.

    No More Heroes has a weight lifting mini game.

    Also, nothing duct tape can't solve.
