I'm going to completely change my tack on what I said in another thread an hour ago, FUCK PS3, I WANNA WII!
Snake in SBB and the new Mario plus that truck game won me over. I'll be there with bells on!

Nintendo....Wii?
« Reply #101 on: 13 May 2006, 07:21 »

Ok Im not sure if I missed that convo about the controller for the wii but I just would like to say as I think about it I think its a great idea. I will admit I a lazy guy and the thought of being able to play a game with one hand is freakin great. Sit back and play a whole game while on the phone, drinkin a sode or beer, eating....I actually cant wait for it. I remember The Glove for the first Platstation, I loved that thing, ya my wrist hurt after awhile but I went on and ate my chips and I beat many of the games I had.  
As for the name, I think what a better way to get remembered, wii, yes it does sound like wee, so what parents wont mind that I means they would if it was something like peess then we would have a problem. So back off the name, it works on many levels we're just not use to it. I can remember the Xbox....at first thought I was like...xbox...what the fork is a name like that...but then as time passed on I got use to it and look how huge it became.

Ok, I'm starting to swing towards Wii, especially with all this talk of PS3 being super expensive. I said to my dad, "You know, maybe I should get a new console when Ben leaves. To keep me company." And he actually said, "Sounds very reasonable." Woo! I thought I didn't care about the name.

But I was talking to my friend and I said, "I think I want a Wii," and we ended up in a fit of laughter. That won't stop me from getting it eventually, but it is seriously awkward.

Pffft. Snake would just blow pit into 2 seperate parts with explosives, lock on with stinger missiles, activate stealth and then chase him with a nikita rocket.


Hmmmm.

*watches hour long Sony press video*

*watches hour long Nintendo press video*

Me: Hi Nintedo?
Nintendo: Yes?
Me: Can you send me a Wii, about 10 of the games you demo'd today, and four controllers?
Nintendo: Sure!
Me: Thanks.

That'll be me on launch day :). Also the fact that it has an optional SD slot for more internal memory means I could slap a 2GB card in there for glorious space.

You know, it's getting to where the people bashing the Wii are just getting a bit ridiculous. I've actually talked to a couple people who like the system and the games, but consider themselves too "cool" to get one because of the name. It's unbelievable.

I don't think that way, but it makes sense that a lot of people think that way.  A lot of what Nintendo does is sort of like porn in that sense; you like it, but you don't want to be seen liking it.

Scott R. likens it more to http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=196">domestic abuse, but I think I like the porn metaphor more. :P

"Hey, I never noticed you have a GameCube."

"It's not mine! It's, um, my brother's. I don't know how that got there."

"Hey, it's cool man. I play GameCube too."

"Oh. Heh heh. Cool."

VG Cats would probably be my favourite comic if he updated more often.

The recent comic about the PSP commercials was pure gold.

QFT. Scott is terrible with deadlines. Great art, insightful, funny, but he cannot keep a consistent update schedule.
