Wiitards


It seems that electronics company Panasonic has taken notice of the high number of idiots that can't keep ahold of their Wii Remotes. They could just continue making and selling regular televisions, citing their locked down w...

CVG has uncovered some absolutely stunning ideas from Nintendo -- stunning due to just how unbelievably stupid they are. If you thought Nintendo couldn't get lower than The Virtual Boy or R.O.B, just look at what the company ...

Not yet, at least. We hear so much about how the Nintendo Wii's wand wiggling could benefit a player's physical fitness, but a new study says that it may not benefit us as much as we originally thought.Dalhousie University s...

First off, yes, this video is old. I've never seen it before and it has never graced Destructoid though, so it's perfectly OK for me to post this! Anyway, mainstream media had made a startling discover on our Internets. They...

We've all heard about how dangerous videogames are from a variety of crackpots who vilify their violent content and penchant for teaching kids how to murder people, but it's not often that the virgin-white Wii is branded dang...

I'm not out to rain on anyone's parade, but all of that arm flailing in front of your Nintendo Wii may not be helping your physical fitness as much as you'd like to think it is. A study called "Energy expenditure in adol...

This clip is from the new T.V. show called Life. This clip is also one of the worst representation of what videogames are that has ever graced prime time. A lot of shows lately like The Office, My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, House...

I don't know how else to title this article, nor do I know what to say, really. This is a weird one, that's for damn certain. Go Nintendo reader Tony sent an email to the aforementioned site telling the story of how his wife ...

You can file this one under the "how the hell did they stretch this one to over three minutes?" category. Here's a parody song from Amy Winehouse (or rather, Amy Brickhouse) called Wiihab in which the scary songstre...

Only yesterday I brought you Nintendo's most pompous claim yet -- that gamers were apparently bored until Nintendo rubbed the cobwebs from their eyes and introduced our messiah in the Wii. However, according to research, it i...

The horrible Nick Chester informed us yesterday that Nintendo is giving away free protection covers for Wii owners (thanks to all of the Wiitards, no doubt). Well it apparently is going to cost Nintendo over $17 million to do...

Look I drink...and this results in a lot of apologies. Be it to a Catholic Bishop, AOL, or the shopping cart I "allegedly" molested at Wal-Mart. But, I have never ever apologized with a bag of marijuana cigarettes.&...

I hate it when our medium leaks into T.V. and movies since it's usually butchered (a good example of what I'm talking about will be on Weekend Destructainment this week). So I always have to cringe when I see our pasttime abo...

There's something about we gamers that seems to give us an innate ability to home in on any and all homoerotic material and make as big a deal of it as possible. This would help explain why everybody's jumping on the 'news' t...

Destructoid reader cjpkiller sent me an email this morning letting me know he saw this and thought of me. He was right to do it. What we have here is a nice collection of some of the most insane blathering I've ever seen with...

Last week we told you about the classic board game The Game of Life making its way to the Nintendo Wii, and now it looks like another popular board game is getting a Wii-working.I've only played Cranium twice before, and both...

It seems like gaming companies are slowly taking away our right to sit still and motionless while playing our games. The Wii already has us doing every type of silly motion humanly possible, and even the PS3 sometimes has us ...

Took them long enough, didn't it? After months of waiting, we finally have some cheap, terrible Wiimote knock-off on the shelves of Walmart, in the form of four LCD sports 'games' in an inconvenient Wiimote-shaped case. For s...

In my short tenure at Destructoid, I've done a lot of things I never thought I would. I've eaten cocktail sausages with games companies, I've been stranded in the Hilton Hotel with Pure Pwnage and angry Norwegians. I've telep...

The third-party accessory makers have been pitching mostly unnecessary add-ons for our game consoles and related devices for a some time now. This is the first controller accessory that we've seen in a long time that actually...

You remember Wiimbledon, right? The first ever Wii Tennis tournament was a hit, and now one of the founders moves on to the next natural Wii sport in the progression: bowling. Wiimbledon organizer Steve Bryant joins man-abou...

Screens and scans of the upcoming Soul Calibur spin-off for the Wii have flowed freely as of late, but now you can finally get a chance to see it in action. And I do use the term "action" very loosely, as only the m...

You've gotta love Cooking Mama. Sure, she's got a dark side, but who doesn't? At her heart, Mama is a good-hearted woman who only wants to help you become the great chef she knows you can be. She invited you into ...

Part hipster costume party, part casual Wii-gamer, and part "Well, I don't really want to fit into either of those other two categories, so I suppose I'll just drink a lot of beer instead" would all aptly d...

 This past Saturday, .Tiff, Analog Pidgin, Phist and I headed out to Barcade in Brooklyn, NY to check out the first annual Wiimbledon event. Also to drink lots of reasonably priced microbrews, as evidenced by my fail...

I truly find it hard to believe that anyone is still actually playing Wii Sports, much less the "sounds great on paper, but about as fun as trying to bite your own ear" Wii Boxing. But then again, NPD numbers indica...

Man. Remember when people actually cared that much about the PS3? Those were the days. Although when I interviewed several campers on launch night, most of them were planning to turn around and sell it, and one girl who had c...

We've all seen the videos on YouTube and read the stories. Injuries caused by overzealous game players getting hurt by way of the Wiimote are nothing new to any of us. However, getting your very own medical term coined af...

Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the midst of an epidemic. A vile scourge comes from the east, intent of destroying our homes and obliterating everything we have worked so hard to build for ourselves. It can't be bargained...

Konami sent over a press release today announcing that their Dance Dance Revolution franchise would be coming to the Wii. Called Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party, the title is slated to come out at some point this year. ...

You know the story -- a radio station's Wee for a Wii water drinking contest left Jennifer Strange dead from water poisioning. The contestant's possible deaths were discussed by both the hosts and callers and shrugged...

After the death of a mother recently because of an idiotic morning DJ contest called "Hold Your Wee for a Wii," the radio station that employed these jackasses has decided to can 10 employees of KDND. Three jockeys...

People are so insane about getting a Wii, that they're willing to die for one ... literally. Such is the case of a mother who took part in a radio contest in which you had to "Hold Your Wee for a Wii." From CNN:...

  What, of course this is news! You're probably sick of watching Wiitards throw remotes at their moms, so here is something completely different -- a well spoken half naked blonde woman playing Wii Sports -- str...

 At this stage, there is pretty much no excuse we can think of that this should have happened, but it's still rather funny that it did. A girl filming her parents was beaned in the face with her mom's ...

CyberneticTigerZ is away this weekend partying it up with the girls of Nerdcore. Lucky bugger. So while TigerZ is away, Faith gets to bring you the best videos this week from the intertubes. First I bring you proof that Son...

It's not just the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with the occasional system errors, no, it seems that Nintendo's beloved Wii is also prone to problems. Mine, for example, will freeze about 50% of the time when I switch ga...

Looks like Wiitards are screwed. Despite the ridiculous determination of lawyers to try to find a way to blame Nintendo for people's inability to firmly hold a controller and move around simultaneously, the argument seems...

Check out Seecolonslash for what is possibly the funniest gamer t-shirt I've seen all year. I'm just regretful it's too late to get them for Christmas or I would have knocked many a gift off my list. Also, the sit...

Before you pick up that Wiimote, then abruptly call a lawyer, perhaps you should watch the video above first. The kind folks at G4's Attack of the Show were nice enough to put together a little safety training vid for ...
