And so it begins...or why Nintendo needs to get it together


one of these games makes babies cry

Cliff Notes: My girlfriend is awesome and tried to buy us new games for the Wii. Nintendo likes money and whores itself out, allowing shitty games like Game Party to grace the platform. I'm getting GH: Aereosmith because my girlfriend wants to buy it. Also, Cocks.

I knew eventually I would be effected by the epidemic that Nintendo has caused with its insertion of the Wii into the mainstream video game culture. I knew there would come a point in the relationship my Wii and my girlfriend have, where Wii Sports would no longer satisfy her appetite. It was only a matter of time...

After beating Metriod Prime 3: Corruption, I retired my Nintendo Wii to my girlfriend's house because there was nothing else that I wanted to play on it and she loves playing Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. I only have one guitar for the Wii so what usually ends up happening is she plays one song then I play one song. It's great, she's getting into gaming, we are spending time with each other, and life is perfect.

It was perfect until yesterday...

I have the type of girlfriend who calls you to say she's going to Best Buy and ask you if you need anything. I usually say no but yesterday I decide to simply reply, "Yes". Imagine my surprise when I get home to not one but two games! I quickly snatched the games out of the bag only to be confronted by Game Party and Cooking Mama: Cook Off. I KNOW these games are bad, you know these games are bad, but a loving girlfriend, wife, or mother would have no idea that a game called Game Party would be horrendous.

Now at this point, the games are still wrapped and ready to be taken back to Best Buy for anything else. I decided to give Game Party the benefit of doubt; it couldn't possibly be that bad right? Oh my friend, that couldn't be further from the truth. If I had the option of getting punched in the nuts every hour on the hour for the rest of my life or play Game Party, I would have one swollen pair of nuts. After only 30 minutes of playing everything the game had to offer, my girlfriend turned to me and asked when Guitar Hero: Aerosmith was coming out. She was just as amazed as I was of how crappy this game was. She was so put off by the game that she is taking Cooking Mama back today and using the credit to get the new Guitar Hero game.

Remember when the "Seal of Approval" from Nintendo actually meant something? What ever happened to that. I know that all platforms have their share of craptacular games and this is nothing different. My problem is that the Wii has way more crappy games than decent ones. There's no way in hell Game Party should have been allowed to see the light of day. Hopefully I can find something else besides Guitar Hero for the girlfriend and I to play together. Suggestions anyone?
