    That's a shame, but I can't exactly blame you. The Wii doesn't exactly have an abundance of good games out right now.

    Lol you don't have to apologize for that. You can do whatever you want. No offence but do you think anyone here cares if you sold your Wii?

    Yeah, one big reason I got a Wii was to play GameCube games and Eternal Darkness is amazing.

    As someone who owns a 360 and a gaming PC, and therefore is completely neutral in this transaction, I have to ask:

    Your name is Solid_Snake (sigh)Xx? And you consider yourself a "Wii'er"?

    I sold my Wii too, and I was sad because I really wanted to keep it and hope for better games later on...giving Nintendo another chance after it started to fade away for me during the GC era... but I really needed a PS3.

    just because they did it in the 80s doesnt excuse them from releasing a pathetic excuse of console that is basically a ps2 in white plastic with an added motion censor in 2008.

    Adding a shitty quote from a shitty anime wont change that fact either.

    Quote from anime? Whaaaaaaaa? I hate anime, mostly. And the Wii is endorsed by Nintendo as well as Will Wright, two of the biggest names in gaming. How do you deny that?

    why would i want to deny that? if they endorsed the Gizmondo, you want me to buy that too? some washed up company from the 80s who gave up on their core audience and started to feed 8 year olds and soccer moms endorsed their latest attempt.........that doesnt mean i have to start worshiping the wii.

    1. Could you tell me what anime I quoted, pleeeez? I want to make sure that it's not a gay one.
    2. I never said you had to worship the Wii. In fact, I'd advise against any kind of worship towards an electronic device....but I don't feel abandoned by Nintendo at all. I think they've done their job fairly swimmingly thus far. All I'd want is a new Star Fox and I'd be satisfied with their stuff. But I know everyone feels bum raped by Nintendo as of late because they didn't announce Kid Icarus, so I decided to highlight notable third party games to show that 2009 is really looking up.

    the one with the annoying kid, Narito or some shit.

    you dont feel abandoned? after owning the Super Nintendo, N64 (or not, some people were too young)  youre satisfied with a Zelda port from the gamecube with needless motion controls, One Real Mario game, a Pathetic excuse of an online service and trucks full of Shovelware and no new ips? ...............nice, you enjoy your 250$ down the toilet.

    btw, enjoy nintendo's 08/09 holiday lineup.........oh wait

    Yeah, I was there for the Super Nintendo, but I was playing Doom more than Mario at that time. I think I was 4 or 5. I also have the N64, and think it's one of the best consoles ever. Unlike everyone else, though, I am embracing the Wii and its casual fare. Wii Fit? I got it and like it a lot. Boom Blox? I loved it. When I got the Wii, I wasn't expecting the same old stuff that Nintendo was releasing, but new things entirely. I got that, and for that, I'm happy. If Nintendo released MotionPlus and said, "We're done, it's up to third parties now," I'd be fine, maybe even glad., because then third party developers would have the field to do whatever they wanted. Besides, shovelware comes due to low development costs, and there are new IPs on the system. Look at Madworld. Also, the motion controls are far from needless. In fact, they were completely needed for Nintendo to stay alive. I like motion controls because it gives the Wii a different appeal than the Xbox and Playstation. What's the point of having three consoles if they're all the same thing?

    BTW: Naruto is retarded, and I didn't quote it knowingly.
