Thank you!  I'll be here all week!

You know what? Wii, Shmee. It's got Metroid Prime 3 and the next Smash Bros. game, and that's all I needs to know.

Another reason to get it: IT WON'T COST 600 BUCKS.

Well, it'll still cost you a monthly charge to play the games online, another reason I've fallen out of the gaming circles.  First, you pay anywere from $200-$600 for a console that'll be obsolete in two years, you pay about $50-$75 for the games themselves and $29.95 a month to play them online.  Who can afford to game anymore?

I'll stick with my PSOne, thankyouverymuch.

In related news, Nintendo just announced the next Smash Bros Game...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Watch it. If anybody guessed who the last new character was... I will refuse to believe them.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

I'll stick to my emulators. You know, it's not as if I can spend so much time gaming.

Besides, Rollercoaster Tycoon is still the best.

Spoiler
Smash Bros is my favourite beat 'em up game, so that means the Wii is going on my wish list.
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye. An evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum swam across the Gulf of Mexico wearing a shark fin on his back and then planted a bomb on a boat. Think about that. Let that sink in. Now. Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

Same here. If only I could find a decent Playstation emulator... all I've seen so far work extremely slow. :(
I want to play RoadRage! Damn you Alex, why did you tell me about this game? ;D

I'll hold my guns. I've been with Sony Playstations since they first came out, and I see no reason to change now. Even if I have to endure the $600 price tag (thats about £520, no?).
Now MGS4 has been anounced, its even better!

I had a Nintendo 64 once... sold it for half the price a few week later  :-\

Because I'm Evil.


I'll probably end up getting the Wii-Volution as well, because of the new Smash Bros and Zelda games.  But I'll probably wait until I can get it second-hand.

Screw the name, Nintendo has always had some of the most original and fun games (especially party games) ever, so i'm looking forward to see this one! :)
