Really? Wii Sports Resort, MotionPlus top Amazon sales photo



Seriously? Are people really beating down doors for the upcoming Wii accessory Wii MotionPlus and the new game Wii Sports Resort? They haven't even played it yet, but somehow the device and game are ranked on Amazon.com's top-selling games list as number 10 and number 3 respectively. As preorders.

Is 1:1 motion sensing and Mii sword fighting really that big of a deal? This is just as silly as when people freaked the hell out about getting the Wii Wheel for Mario Kart Wii. Am I missing something here? 

Nintendo really does print money. July will be a good month for them, as the game releases on the 26th at $50. It only comes with one Wii MotionPlus sensor, so the sales of each $20 perpherial should be pretty strong, too. That's at least $70 per taker, then. 

Damn. I so should have bought Nintendo stock back in the day.

The crushing despair of Mario Kart summed up in a single video

The only way this would be better is if the footage was from Mario Kart 8 so we could look out for the obligatory Luigi death stare. Still. Holy crap. We've all had our frustrating moments with the series, but I don't know that there's any topping this 30-second slice of hell. And that last-minute Bullet Bill out of nowhere. Way to make it feel personal. [Via reddit]more

These Rosalina plushies are so cute they should be illegal

If I'm being honest, the main reason I picked up Super Mario Galaxy when it came out was to see Rosalina. Her character design has always resonated with me. I mean, the game is fantastic, but I think I now prefer Rosalina to ...more
