My profile is an explosion waiting to happen.

I don't know about you but I don't like scrolling. My index finger has had enough. Anyone notice how profiles can get so big? I have posted two full reviews in the past on Giant Bomb and it just shows the entire review texts on the profile. Why not clip it off at some point? Why can't a review have its own page? There needs to be a limit! I refuse to post another review until something is done.

Anyway, now that I have that off my chest, I can now move on. The other day I bought a Wii from Amazon, which lets you choose a free game. I chose Tomb Raider: Underworld since there wasn't much else to choose from. Unfortunately, the Wii Sports disc is cracked. I can either send the entire package back (Amazon will NOT send individual items) or hopefully wait for Nintendo to get back to me. I really can't be asked packing it just because of a broken disc.

I finally gave in to eBay and got my details sorted with PayPal. I purchased the 120 GB hard drive for £60. It's new and tested. I will of course not be getting the 60 GB hard drive. I have no idea how someone can sell it for so cheap but it's coming from Japan, so, erm, I don't know; they stole a whole batch? I sure hope not. I've used eBay in the past but with postal orders (earlier this decade).

Some other items purchased/on the way:

  • Big Brain Academy
  • Wii Points card (will buy these from console when Visa replaces Solo/Maestro in 2009)

I guess they still need to fix some stuff with this site, but it's still quite awesome.
Too bad about Wii Sports dude.  I hope my nephew's disk isn't cracked.

I don't mind scrolling to a certain degree, but I agree, the whole review showing on profiles is pretty annoying.

You're not missing a whole lot with a broken Wii Sports.  Tennis is fun, but you can wait for that.

I know just what you mean. I prefer to click the middle mouse button and move around that way (RTS Style) but even then it can take a looong time to go through profiles.

Sucks about the cracked disc. Really does, Wii sports is pretty much a Wii esential. Isn't the 120GB the elite, or are there even more systems I don't know about?

Problem solved. Have fun posting reviews. ;)
