They only had Animal Crossing and some fruity music game that the Man-Child genius Miyamoto unleashed on a stunned lethargic video press. Let's ridicule them. Offer our unique insight at what we think of a music game clearly not catered to your demographic.
It boggles my mind that people are shocked, surprised and shell shocked that Nintendo, the company that built Mario, Zelda, and Metroid, are stunned that they didn't have titles geared to the hardcore gamer out there. I mean c'mon, these hardcore gamers are the same ones that buy games like Zach & Wiki, Bloom Box, No More Heroes, Beyond Good & Evil and Psychonauts by the truckloads, right? The same ones that still say Wii is a fad. The ones that ridiculed the Nintendo's DS when it first came out, right? Are you kidding me? Seriously, are you?"
