Opoona (Wii)

Opoona the Ranger has been assigned to patrol a nearby mineĀ  in order to keep it free from monsters. However, he’s standing behind a counter at Eat Everyday taking orders. The current customer has asked for popcorn, minestrone soup, and eel sushi, and Opoona is scrambling to fulfil the order quickly and accurately. Should he impress the manager, not only will Opoona earn his pay, but he may improve the chances of getting an assignment at the Blue Desert Hotel, where there is a man who can help him get his Miner’s License. As a Ranger assigned to patrol the mine, a Miner’s License would come in very handy. But for now Opoona needs to focus and make sure not to goof up any of the customers’ orders.

Sam & Max: Episode 1 (Wii)

It’s near the beginning of the game and I’m already stuck. A mouse in the office has demanded Swiss cheese in return for the phone he stole. Looking in the closet, I see a massive pile of cheese, but none of it is Swiss. As I’m struggling to figure out what to do, my wife sits down next to me and watches me play. After hearing a few minutes of the dialogue she says, “This is corny.” At that point she gets up and heads to the other room to play with our son. I focus back on the game, and soon it dawns upon me that I should shoot holes in the cheese with a pistol. Problem solved. But the “corny” comment sticks in my mind. A few minutes later I turn off the Wii and go play with my wife and son.
