man the Wii looks amazing. I was going to get one, but I bought a PS2 so I can play Disgaea 2... I hope I won't be disappointed. I will certainly get a Wii once Super Smash Bros Brawl comes out. Mario vs Solid Snake? SWEET!

A console is only as good as it's games........while the Nintendo console (I refuse to call it the "Wii") has an attractive price, I am not impressed with the controller and will wait and see what kind of games it has.<br><br>
This game looks interesting, but not enough to sell the console to me alone.<br><br><a href="http://wii.nintendo.com/software_battalionwars.html" target="_blank">http://wii.nintendo.com/software_battalionwars.html</a><br><br><br>
BTW, check out the picture of 2 girls playing Excite Truck.....is she making that face because of the severly uncomfortable controller design? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br><a href="http://wii.nintendo.com/software_excite.html" target="_blank">http://wii.nintendo.com/software_excite.html</a><br><br><br>
Overall, the 2 Mario games, a Wario game, another Zelda game and another Metroid game.....just doesn't "wow" me.....but not like any other console's launch titles are that impressive either.

That is a good point, but think, do we have that much <b>exclusive</b> content to look forward to on any other console? I don't think so. Not only that, think of the small studios who'll have a chance of producing for the wii, it's going a different direction, mainly a cheaper direction

Go Nintendo Wii! Can't for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.<br><br>
Off topic: Hah, Xbox360 is a dvd base system and here i thought it was a HD-Dvd gaming system, that's sad.

See redsteel's trailer and then youl feel bad for sayin those words. (that is if you have ANY taste which it seems like you dont tbh)<br />
<br />
- Second of all the chicks playin Excite Trucks are payed models payed to do what nintendo tells them ("put on a crazy face and look like ur having a blast?") <br />
<br />
- Third of all i understand what you mean by it doesnt 'wow' you as the surprise factor isnt a 'wow' because nintendo always updates the classics, but the fact that these classics will have faithful sequels on the Wii that everyone knows will own is certainly amazing. And last but not least, if you refuse to call it the wii noone cares, just keep callin it the Nintendo console and get laughed at <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
And btw, Nintendo doesnt need ppl like you to buy theyre console. They got plenty of people like me and the rest of the ppl here to buy um up <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" />

Taste is objective....the great beauty of the world is that everyone can like something different. You obviously have not learned this yet. I saw Red Steel demo'd.......it is not to my taste, if I wanted to wave my arms around and play sword fight, I would take up fencing and do it for real. I am appriciative of the fact that the game is not a clone of another game directly and that it introduces new elements to gameplay......I simply do not care for them myself.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Really? I thought those were candid shots of regular gamers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)"> It's not like Nintendo has been using paid models since their first console or anything. Though, maybe you don't remember those days....Atari did it too when their first system released, just so you know.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I don't think you do understand. Your post proves that. In addition, being impressed has nothing to do with suprise, and everything to do with seeing something that looks to be a lot of fun.<br><br>
I work hard for my money, and I have several hobbies....when I spend my money I don't just throw it around at anything that catches my eye, or because it's new. I don't care what other people enjoy, it's my money, so it's about what I like. I don't begrudge the people that enjoy spending 10 hours playing Mario Sunshine, if that's what they enjoy then I am glad they found something that makes them happy. However, I would not spend 5 minutes with that game as it does not appeal to me in any way.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Thankfully, my life is not tied to what strangers on the internet think of me. If you do care about such things, you should know I am sitting here laughing at anyway who calls it the Wii. You play with your Wii all you want......<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Well, I am sure Nintendo would turn me away if I asked to buy <b>thier</b> console, because of the amazing buying power of you and the other <b>people</b>, hopefully some with better grammer and spelling. And I will cry myself to sleep everynight, disheartened by the thought that Nintendo doesn't need me. Of course, Nintendo is currently in last place in the console market, so maybe they need something......<br><br>
I suggest you <span style="text-decoration:underline;">need</span> a lesson in humor and acceptance of other points of view with a class on controlling your arrogance for good measure. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

Well to be fair, nintendo can be in last place for the rest of it's days, but that is no true reflection of the quality entertainment and innovation they have given us past, present and will do so in the future.<br />
<br />
Just my opinion, but it sounds like what people online think may have a bigger bearing on your behaviour than you might think. It's obviously your entitlement to have your own opinion, but was it truly neccessary to disect his comments with the sole purpose of making him out to be less intelligent than yourself, however we can rest assured this display was not to feed your ego or for anyone else to see, surely not!<br />
<br />
We all say silly things from time to time, and it's not the first or last time you'll see people's comments scrutinised and cross examined in such an unscrupulous way, but is there any real need? I'll be the first to disagree with his comments, but obviously the difference between you and i is that i won't take advantage of the fact his <b>grammar</b> perhaps isn't up to the same high standard as yours. But be <b>appreciative</b> that we can all learn from each other and in saying that, you could do with a few of those classes yourself.

I would like to remind EVERYONE that the reason behind entertainment is not FPS, or number of keyboard shortcuts... It's because of entertainment. Sure, DOOM is exempt, but for the most part, Nintendo has delivered FUN entertainment. And they have done so since their inception.<br />
<br />
WITHOUT BASING ON OTHER MANUFACTURERS<br />
<br />
Think about it. They have just done their thing and revolutionized many aspects of gaming. I would HATE to see them go personally.

Even people who don't like nintendo shouldn't want them to go. Even if what nintendo does doesn't do it for you, a lot of what nintendo does best can be taken, analysed and made better, and constantly does.
