The Wii is dangerous: More dangerous than stupid doctors?

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 dangerous. Fortunat...

Wii games are not fit for fitness...yet

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 adolescents playing...

Weekend Destructainment: Mainstream media continues to rape videogames

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, Boston Legal ...

Wii shows soldier his cheating wife's bowling shenanigans

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 cheated on him ...

Check yourself into Wiihab: At least it's one of the better Wii puns

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 songstress celebrates h...

Nintendo is boring: The Wii has failed to invigorate many, despite N's claims

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 is Nintendo that...

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...   read

Greybushtainment: Dave's not here man

New Southwest ad makes fun of Wiitards

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 about to make a ca...

UR MR GAY! Super Mario Galaxy artwork holds a mirror to your homosexuality

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' that if you try ...

PS2 gets its own wiggle wand

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 flicking our co...

Shameless Wiimote rip-off for the Walmart win

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 seven bucks, you...

Wiimbeldon: Barcade, Beers, and Bears! Oh My!

Make yourself look sillier playing Wii Sports; introducing Wii Boxing Gloves

Web MD: the Wiimote is actually a double-edged sword
