Bullet Witch: Not as crappy as you think

So, after peeling myself away from Gears, I made a visit to Atari today to check out Bullet Witch for the Xbox 360 -- due out in sometime in February. My assumptions of what to expect of the game were merely a mix of this: It's a Japanese...

Cute Japanese chicks love the Wii

You know, I overheard the other day on the streets of NYC some dude telling another dude that the DS is for girls. Is it possible the Wii will suffer the same stigma? Possibly. What does that have to do with this video? Probably nothing. ...
