Wheel of Fortune (for Wii)

In this odd review or unique challenge I will compare and contrast my new Wii Wheel of Fortune game to my older version on CD for my PC. The “older” game had Pat Sajak as Vanna White as both voice host and her real role a letter turner or pretty face. This ‘newer’ version had the copyright to use Pat Sajak as actual host and real life position. ADD 3 Points. The disadvantage to this Wii version is you must use your controller to choose letters from a keyboard style menu on the screen. As a result you lose time must use naviagating skills to choose the proper letter. This process is cumbersome, aggravating, and fairly annoying. Minus 5 Points. The advantage to the Wii game is that you can use sit in your more relaxed easy chair or recliner (any man’s paradise) as opposed to sitting in a uncomfortable, aging computer chair that one must sit up in or bend over to type on the computer. (Much like I am doing now.) ADD 6 points The disadvantage to both games is that spelling counts and the player must not be distracted by a car backfiring in the parking lot outside or an odd old lady walking by outside, telling you look handsome in a bathing suit. Mutual Minus 7 points. The Wii game Wins by 4. (Hi CC) Overall however the game is a lot of fun. I can spend hours on it and put my friends and family members. My two favorite characters or personas to use are M.C. Awesome and Z. One is my ‘Heartthrob’ and closest friend from college. The other is the Valavatorian of last year. They were roommates by the way. Some added extras to this game is you can compare and contrast your favorite players via an a feature on the opening menu named Player Stats this will let you see what each player ha accomplished via a list of stats or accomplishments such as Total money won, Prizes Won and Most Money lost to Bankrupt.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
