Someone said that the artist who created the original structure that was there before this one could have asked them to remove it because he wasn't credited for the work or something along those lines. It is an extremely eerie thing to replace it with though.
I've actually been really turned off by a lot of games lately, mostly the big name blockbuster style games that seem to be popping up left and right. Nothing on the new consoles even sparks an interest in me, it seems like the same old things with better graphics honestly, shooters and sports titles out the ass. Over the last couple of years I've found myself becoming more drawn to indie games and arcade titles that draw me back to the earlier days of gaming when I was a kid. Recently I've been considering getting a Wii now that there is a huge catalog of games I can play that I never got around to. As for the Wii U, it doesn't really have anything of interest for me yet. The 3DS seems to have a much better selection than the Wii U. I would love to see a new Metroid and more than anything a Pokemon MMO, but not MMO style because I hate that, just leave the formula we're familiar with but allow many people to be in the world and fight Pokemon.
