I will always love my Wii

Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I will love you. I hate you.

You, Wii, will live on in the Wii U.

I loved you. My goddamned Wii. I will touch you again, but damn, sorry to see you go so fast, so young.

Maybe your HD versions of all your great Wii games will be a hit. God speed Wii, God Speed.

The Wii has died and a Skyward Sword will seal its fate as the Wii tries to live on. And Giant Bomb debates.

This is art. I don't spam. I might troll, but I troll for thought and good.

Hell, Shattered Memories is a frighteningly great game.

It's the one Wii game I enjoyed, but I would've rather seen it on other consoles.

I fucking hate your Wii

@SamFo: Don't be a snitch, bitch.

It's not art. It's nothing. It belongs on Gamefaqs, not here.

I love my Wii, it's fucking red!

This isn't spam. Claude's Wii Love/Hate relationship is well documented round these parts... major part of that in song form

Anywho- while I've never been a big fan of the Wii, everything that Nintendo does- constantly being different from its competitors and doing risky things- continues to fascinate me.

And I will always love you, uncle Claude. I'll be loving mine even more in December. Check out the new Zelda videos I've posted.

@CornBREDX: fair enough, i did not realise this was a blog post either

Gamefaqs has nothing on me. The Wii is dead. It died many years ago for most. In some ways, it speaks volumes on where the video game industry is heading. I'm so curious to see what the Wii U brings to the table.

My Wii will always be remembered as a cousin who lives in another state. He came over for Christmas one year and we had a blast together. Then then the next Christmas, I expected to have fun with him all over again, but you can't force good times like that. Slowly he just became less interesting, he only wanted to hang out with the younger kids instead of me, the person who grew up with him.

When the Wii is finally gone, he will be nothing more than a far away memory. Some nights I'l try to remember whether or not the good times I had were real, or I just didn't know any better at the time.

Claude, you're a definite character on these boards but this isn't a positive addition to them in any way.

Xenoblade called me up just now, to tell me that she's waiting for you Claude. :P
#18 Posted by Contro (2040 posts) -

Xenoblade will have to travel to the states, but the chances of her doing so seem very slim, this year. It will probably be the last great Wii game released in America, after Skyward Sword in November. A release on WiiU with updated graphics in America is another possibility, the US Wii market could easily recoup the development costs.

He's American. Also, I think this song better describes Claude's Wii love:

I used my Wii just the other week.

Turned it on for 5 seconds to take my Ikaruga disc out so I could play it on my gamecube.

Oh, its one of those threads.
 
Well here we go: Thanks to several societal events and the lovely Xenoblade, I have played more Wii this month than any other consoles. 
It's been the weakest year since launch year, but Xenoblade really does make up for it.

It's how Claude expresses himself. Not through longwinded posts, through... this stuff.

haven't turned mine on in a year waste of money

Ive had a few good memories with the system through a couple local multiplayer games on that system but I never liked it....

I have a Wii.

#26 Posted by TehBuLL (588 posts) -

I got a classic controller pro for my birthday and as such have used my wii more this month than any two years prior. Almost have super Mario world completely cleared.

Wii sucks.

#28 Posted by coakroach (2486 posts) -

Yeah the Wii was great.

Nintendo making profiting wildly off a piece of hardware that lagged behind in every conceivable technical aspect and alienated third party developers.

DLC? Matchmaking? Bitch please i'm playing dog football.

And it looks like the Wii U will do it all over agaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain! Yay!

The Wii is a joke, toy console.
