You know what I don't get?

Nintendo Wii sport games that utilise the motion stick thingie..

I mean..

Why not go out and play?

And I'll bet you all 10 grams of fine marrocan hash that there is/is going to be fucking mods that look like a baseball bat or some shit like that..

I don't get it..

go
out
and
play

But I'm looking forward to learning more about it's functions in other games..

Myself? I hope that they really go all out one day, and make a real nunchako (sp?) mod for that part of the controller.. I'd play ninja games aaal day..

well like, I cant go out and actually be a real life badass ninja can I?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the Wii

I'm going to get one myself..

But I just don't get that part.. Like.. You can go out and play tennis, or any other game, if you wanted too.. Why play it?

But I cant go out doing whatever the fuck a Wii offers as fictionals games do, do.. Wow..

Hope you get me..

Geeno man.. Why you gotta do me like that? ><

its just the living room/bedroom convenience factor yo

Plus some of us have some harsh winters out here, or no access to courts/equipment. Or no one to play with, or we're lazy as fuck.

Ninjas and martial arts are a byproduct of weapon prohibition. If you think about it.

Nintendo fucked up big time. They let Sony steal their controller and have been suffering ever since.

EDIT: Rant time.

Like seriously. Nintendo made what was pretty much the most user-friendly game controller when they released the SNES. Why did they let Sony get away with tacking on a couple extra buttons and calling it their own? Sony's used the same design ever since, and Nintendo has had crappy controller after crappy controller for every system since the N64. I don't know why, but it really irritates me. :finger:

I really like gamecubes controller, n64 worked but we all know it was retarded design.. well i guess not but whatever.

I wouldnt be surprised if sony had some sort of stakes in the original SNES controller though, just because they were originally intended to produce a CD attachment for the SNES, which was eventually done by Phillips-Magnavox instead (cd-i, the only non-nintendo console w/ zelda games)

In light of this new information, I can see how Nintendo spelt their own doom and Sony reaped the reward. At least they've remained rather conventional with their hand-held button designs.

I don't understand the novelty angle of controller design. Since the early days of gaming, you push a button and something happens. Why do we have to complicate such a simple operational premise with retarded bullshit? Function over form plz.

Because gaming has become stagnant and its all about graphics. Therefor the mechanics of the user interface must change.

You and many others always talk about "Nintendo's Doom" this and that. Nintendo turns profits, what doom are you talking about? It appears as thought theyve created a niche that they can sit in comfortably while the other competitors squabble to produce high-end consoles before their time.

Nintendo's only mistake was letting sony bounce on them to make the playstation.

But at the same time, would we have the wii today if we didnt have the playstations? Or would we have the Super Nintendo 4?

Well not doom as in absolute lack of marketability, but doom as in loss of market dominance. I don't know, I'm just disenchanted with Nintendo due to their lack of consistency. I think that's what people are really looking for and, for the most part, they're not finding it with Nintendo.

The thing about this "new" (can't really call it new, it's been going on for a good decade now) competition that Nintendo is facing in the market is that it's forcing them to adapt. I don't really know what I want and I'm not versed enough in the gaming industry to debate things like this, but whatever it is Nintendo isn't giving it to me and hasn't for a long while.

EDIT: I failed to finish my point there. Nintendo is adapting in the wrong directions and, for the most part, their competitors (as well as former consumers) are laughing at their attempts all the way to the bank. Now it makes sense.

So this reminds me of an event that took place in our small town about a week ago.


Some native kid starting talking shit about this one white kid. You gotta realize this native kid is like all of 5 foot 6 inchs and not built. It all comes down to them fighting at our local skatepark. Well its a showdown of sorts you could say. With all the whities on one side and all the red-skins on the other. So "bam" the fight starts. You realize this isn't going to last long.
Until the native whips out his pair of home made nunchucks. so now everyones shitting their pants and are like. "yeah now we have a fight" So ok. The native kids takes a good shot and hits the whitey right in the head. Game over right? Wrong, Kid soaks a punch to the head and starts to then beat the shit out of the lil native boy who's prolly crying. So the whitey being a good whitey lets the kid go and begins to leave. ALAS one of the red-skins hands the native boy his nunchucks again. Again the lil native boy who could; hits the whitey in the back of the head. Now whitey is mad. And i meen mad. IT should have knocked him out cold but it didn't so he turns around and begins to wail on the little native boy. Like bloods on the pavement and his eyes are already black from the first punch and things like that. Well he gets off the kid and after saying some choice words ;leaves.


So now its present day. And everyone calls the kid nunchuck boy and laughs at him and theres nothing he can do. And the red skins and white skins are all really really mad at each other and I believe there is going to be another fight of some sorts comming up.

ive heard that the ps3 could really hurt sony, seeing as how much it costs them to make and how much they are losing per unit sold. and around here at least... they havent even sold all the ps3's i dont think. meanwhile the wii is selling out as soon as more come. so unless sony was selling them on ebay i think there gunna lose big on this one. of course they intend to make the money back from the games but if they are not even selling all the systems they have made, it cant be that great.

i personally have never liked playstation, i was always into nintendo and then xbox when it came out. but regardless of that, from what ive gathered sony is losing out big on the ps3 so far. i think mostly the only people buying them are the oldschool ps fans who can afford it. i personally wont put that much money into a ps3 or even the cost of a xbox 360 right now. like $600 and then the cost of games and controllers... thats just lame, ill put that money into my computer and have just as much fun and have many more options of things to do.

this is just me personally though, ive always been a gamer but $600 i just wont do.

i remember when ps2 first came out, and i really wanted one, but because my family has always been next to dirt poor, my parents basically told me to get over it, so i bought one with lunch money and b-day money i saved over like a year. wasn't wal-mart or someplace selling the wii for like 250 bucks? that's a decent price compared to the 600 for an xbox or a ps3.
