Check mii the fuggout!
If your Wiis are blue in the face, it’s probably the Check Mii Out channel alert. Man, i remember when getting the blue light was a futuristically cool thing. Many moons ago, that was.
The Check Mii Out Channel is another in the line of Wii distractions that don’t amount to much gaming-wise, but for some family time probably provides a nice wedge between Wheel of Fortune and How I Met Your Mother. You start off by picking your “Mii Artisan” (snobs) which’ll be your signature when you deposit Miis onto the online plaza for all to see. In the Plaza, you do what i just said, as well as check out all the popular submitted Miis that everyone’s crazy about, like Darth Vader, Dr. Zoidberg, and the ubiquitous Jack Black. There’s a lot more than that, including a million multiples of each, and most of them are really well done considering the limits of the Mii Channel. When you drop your Miis off in the plaza, you also get to designate them a specific talent or expertise, such as Comedy, Music, Gourmond, Art, and so forth.
The other half of this new app is the contest area where you can enter and judge contests. The only available one at this time is “Mario without his cap”. I wanted to send in this Danny DeVito one i have (i think Friz made it), but you can only submit Miis made on your console. Boo.
Again, if you have 5 minutes you can’t think of how to kill, another Wii channel does the dirty work for you.
