I have always considered myself a big Nintendo fan. Fanboy, perhaps, who knows.. but I do love the big N. However.. I am ashamed to admit that i do not own a Wii. Not because I don't want one, but because when they came out I couldn't find one, and when I did find one I didn't have the money.
Fast forward one whole year since it came out, and I am having just as much trouble as I did last year finding one. Which, if you think about it, is really, really sick. Why must every soccer mom in the tricounty area hog them all? I don't care about little Jimmy's Christmas morning.. I want to play Galaxy damn it!
I admit, it's partly my fault.. I mean, I am waiting until the holiday season to buy one. Granted, I couldn't help it that much though, for the majority of the year I was dirt poor and couldn't afford one anyway.. it just figures that i have money for one during Christmas.
So here I am, calling everywhere I can every day to see if I can score a Wii. I went to a few places yesterday only to be laughed at or to have my heart ripped out and stomped on. Toys R Us claimed they just had some the day prior, as did Target, who said they sold all 57 of the ones they had in an hour. A FREAKING HOUR. Not only that, but I called my local Gamestop this morning when they opened and asked if they had any and they did... but they were gone already. I CALLED 15 MINUTES AFTER THEY OPENED.
I'm all down with Nintendo's trying to reach a broader audience or whatever bull they're trying to pull.. but at this point I really don't care about Nintendo, their plan, or anyone else. All I care about is Mario and his excursions in space.
Homicide is an option at this point. read
