My Right Arm is Killing Me

So, I've been playing a lot of Oneechanbara Revolution on the Wii recently. The Wii with its Wii Remote and motion sensing. Playing a game with a ridiculous amount of sword swinging. Sword swinging that on the Wii, uses the Wii Remote.

This has led to a lot of interesting experiences. Sure, subtle motions can get the job done, but in Oneechanbara, you need to be doing "Cool" hits, and to get "Cool" hits, you need to swing with the right amount of speed and timing. Which is absolute murder on the arm.

The you get to factor in that Vertical slashes with the Wii Remote are only one type of Attack. There's also Vertical slashes for a different combo, forward thrusts for specific moves, and mad flailing for special attacks.

All in all, this has led to a noticeable size difference between my right and left biceps, which is kinda scary considering it's only been a week. Granted, it's only noticeable to me, but since when was playing video games supposed to make your muscles bigger ?

It's actually times like this when I'm half glad I'm ambidextrous instead of just my original left handedness, or my enforced right handedness. But thats a story for another time and blog.
