Is your normal Wii too damn big and too damn normal looking? Just in time for Christmas, Nintendo has recently announced the Wii Mini, an even smaller and even uglier version of the Wii, with a mini price of just $100. And it’s ugly. Did I mention that?
Xbox 360 and PS3 already have saved games and gamer profiles saved to the cloud, and when Nintendo launches the Wii U, it will finally come with such a feature. Congrats, Nintendo on being with the times.
Right now, Nintendo already has e-shops for the Wii and 3DS, but the Nintendo Network will be more like the Playstation Network or Xbox Live as a digital distribution system for larger games. Welcome Wii owners to several years ago.
During a live stream press event yesterday, Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest X would be for the Wii and Wii U, and in a departure from past DQ games, would be an online game. Not quite an MMO, though it will have some MMO-like elements to it.
I don’t know how many of you remember the death of the NES, but it’s a common occurrence as consoles start to dwindle in age— their once grand libraries degrade into gimmicky garbage as developers jump ship to the next thing.
If you’re looking forward to all the new games coming out for the Wii, DS and 3DS, Nintendo just dropped them on you like a ten ton Koopa. I did notice that some of the games marked as “DS” in the list are really 3DS, so use your noggins.
The Wii U? I was hoping for something snazzy in a name, but the Wii U it is. This morning’s Nintendo presser was all about their new console, which wii’ve got pictures of for U. It still has motion Wiimote controls, but the big new thing is the big honking controller, which has a gigantic touch screen that can used for all sorts of interesting game interaction.
What with Nintendo set to announce its next console at this year’s E3, it makes sense that a price drop for the Wii was in order at some point. Aaaand… here it is. Starting May 15, for $150, you’ll be able to buy a Wii in either black or white, with a copy of Mario Kart Wii and a racing wheel. That’s down from $200 for just the console, so not a bad deal.
When Nintendo remarked that they’d be showing off their next console at this year’s E3, they didn’t offer many details, but they did mention that the controller in this console would have some sort of touchscreen somewhere on it.
I would have thought that someone would have had invented snap-on Wiimote sex toys from the first day the Wii came out, but I guess sometimes when you’ve got an idea, you’ve got to let it simmer to perfection. Also, I get the one that looks like a dildo, but the robot arm? No, fuck you, that’s okay. That’s not going anywhere near my man bits.
