No, I didn't come up with that hilariously horrid pun in the title. That one was courtesy of Nintendo themselves in this new trailer for Ubisoft's Sports Connection on Wii U. Oh, you think they'd stop there, but no, they just kept on coming. Both "Lay the sack down" and "Who's your caddy?" also wormed their way into this appropriately ridiculous trailer.
They even appeared to have poked a little fun at themselves when a guy playing golf swings his WiiMote and a golf ball lodges itself into the dry wall. I can't wait until the inevitable pictures of the Wii U tablets smashed into TVs. Those are my favorite. Oh, and I guess there's some sports and stuff if you're into that sort of thing.
The thing that caught my eye was that karting game at the end there. It almost looked like Mario Kart sans Mario characters. I wonder if that was on purpose? Oh well, sports!

Videogame Lebron James is a nightmare
Sony's E3 2013 press conference was going pretty well, and then suddenly it broke. For whatever reason, they decided to show an actual man talking to a videogame version of the same man. All this did was illustrate how far we...more
