The confusion about 'real' and 'fake' gaming consoles arises because of the differences in usage between hardcore gamers and mothers. Scientifically speaking, the Wii is definitely not a real platform for gaming. True consoles are developed from the graphics of the processing power, and contain the processing power of the graphics (though bricked forms may be graphicless). Xbox360 and Playstation 3 are real gaming consoles, and so are many kinds of mobile phones. Some computers have a hardcore part which supports the fanboys and is also called 'real gaming consoles', though many is not developed from the ovary of Bill Gates: the Mac is an example. As far as playing is concerned, some games which are strictly casual may be called 'hardcore' because they are used in competitive gaming. The Wii, though technically a gaming console, is often used as a casual system. Occasionally the term 'fake gaming console' may be used to refer to a part of a processor which does not have graphics, but which is used in retro gaming: virtual console, for example. So the Wii is not a real gaming console, used only by mothers.

As we all know, Destructoid.com is an awesome place for awesome people. But in recent times the amount of awesome visitors have risen exponentially to a level at which we no longer can continue our old tradition of biased reviews by fat evil editors. We need to think about the future, you know?
So after some serious tinkering I have managed to construct a system enabling this site to stay awesome.




Yes, now you can take back control with the Anti-bias Rating System Extreme!

ARSE was created, so that users like you could respond to the critics, critique and generally have "your rage" heard by critics around the site.



This new function will elevate this awesome site to match other unbiased game related news sites such as IGN,com, Kotaku.com, and Gametrailers.com. Also, it's the only way to get Jim Sterling fired, making this new rating system totally obsolete afterwards.

The first trailer didn't really impress a lot of people..even me. But now, this? It's hard to tell, really, but I was kind of amazed anyhow. It seems so fast paced in a good way, with lot of action going on. And take notice of the alien falling at the car after getting shot.. ragdoll?:D (I have no clue if other FPS on wii does that, but still most of my experience with this genre is from perfect dark 64; and we know how people died there.)
