Something more expensive than the PS3 -- The Wii

Yes, you read that correctly. I have just received an interesting e-mail from Gamestop, as I do on occasion. It informs me that I will, on Nov. 9, be able to pre-order a Wii Bundle from the Interwub. "B-b-but," I stumble, ...

WTF? Blast Factor for the PS3

I don't know much about this game, but as I surfed along the interbutts to The Magic Box, a game known as Blast Factor piqued my interest. Mainly, the part about it being distributed on the now-nameless PS3 network. It als...

The PS3 Sucks (And will come in third.)

The console wars are heated these days. Opinions fly about like... potatoes. Of the mashed variety. In a comical food fight. Every gaming site you visit, the fanboys and fangirls (let's keep this article PC to the max) jump...

My Wii Pre-Order Story.

It's 6:30 AM, and my iPod is blasting "Yankee Bayonet," by the Decemberists as I bounce around the back of my bus on the way to school. Normally, my head would loll back and forth, fighting away my impending nap, but today?...

Spoil it for yourself -- FFXII's Opening Video

So, we all know Final Fantasy XII got leaked onto the interwub. But now, all you good samaritans who have not yet pirated FFXII can view the opening video for yourself. Don't thank me, though (well, thank me a little) than...

Alice in Marioland - Gamer T Shirts FTW!

So, Threadless is one of my favorite T-shirt sites. Not only do they generally have kick-ass artwork, but I love how their designs are chosen by the community -- such an interesting concept. Anyway, that is why I bring to you Mario in Wonderland, a piece that those of us familiar with Mario and Alice in Wonderland will surely appreciate. Come on, what do you say? Show some gamer love and vote.

The Wii Calculator -- How much money will you need?

$346.77 That is the amount of money I will need come November 19th, according to the handy dandy Wii Calculator courtesy of N-Sider. It looks like I'm going to have to rob someone of their Wii, Virtual Console controller, and Metal Slug Anthologies game. On that note, what's your total cost for all the Wii stuff you want?

You know, I'm quite the die-hard, often-pissed Nintendo fanboy we've all grown to love tolerate. Thus, you may find me on our wonderful forum (and yes, I do link the forum a lot) berrating Microsoft fanboys and defending m...

Wii have got games, and another Wii pun.

Well, damn. It seems that Nintendo has given us a list of all the confirmed game titles that will launch before Spring 2007. Not many by Nintendo, but quite a bit of third party games. Noticably absent: Metal Slug Antholog...
