So I like many gamers have a slight addiction to electronics devices, and I have been having some minor but none the less frustrating trouble as of late with my electronics.
If you read my last blog you should be aware that my 360 is now on its way back to Microsoft to get repaired or replaced. I can't complain it has been working for 2 1/2 years so it died right before the warranty went up on it. What is frustrating about that is the fact that Microsoft no longer sends out coffins to the users to make it really easy to box up and ship back to them. They offer to e mail you a shipping label but I lack a printer that works in my studio apartment, so I had to request the shipping label be sent to me. Oh well I am going to be a repaired box and get back on LIVE. I can't wait.
So because of this little time with out my 360 has made me play my Wii a lot more. I didn't seem to mind the Nintendo titles like Mario and Metroid Prime, but when I played Call of Duty World at War on there I was about ready to vomit because of the lack of graphical polish. Characters didn't animate right, seems between polys, muddy textures. It played fine and I found it very easy to manage, but the constant eye sore of third party games is just too much.
I am a firm believer that good art can over come any tech issues, but these games look like they are just throwing shit on Nintendo's wonder box just to get as few bucks from the unknown masses. Even some other third party Wii exclusives hurt to look at, like Sin and Punishment 2, look like a muddy mess.
Its not like the last generation of console were weak graphically, but it seems as if no one is willing to put out good things on the Wii, sometimes not even Nintendo at times.
Does this make me a graphics whore?
