Also, grammar takes a holiday, eh, Marky?
maybe the Wii was missing "good vibrations" sorry, it's lame...but I couldn't help it. The funky bunch will never be forgiven.
It worries me when boobs as an articles picture goes to the Top 3 stories, it worries me even more when it;s some pecs and abs. What is this world coming to.
although 7 out of ten games are shovelware. i like to think of it as gaming for noobs. also i think that even if there was no wii most of the people that buy them wouldn't buy a ps3 or 360 anyways regardless of game lineups or price point. we all know that the casual gamer will go away eventually its happened before. even if only 10% of the casual gamer become "hardcore" gamers that would be good for all gaming
Him an his funky bunch better chill out, before he feels the wrath of Gary Coleman Good Vibrations!
In other words everything I said right here http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... Is exactly what they're expressing there. This guy is an idiot and I hope this movie flops. He is the wrong man for the job and he can't act. Steven Webber, as I said, would have made the perfect Max Payne. All there is to it.
I think this marks the first time I have agreed with a one bubbler but, you make a good point.
I agree that marky mark can't act...but steven webber.....?????.............. seriously man!
dudes don't listen to nintendojunkie24 he dont know what he's talkin about
Now that's my kind of picture
Yeah, approved for the picture, will read the article later. (Just kidding N4G mods)
@bombibomb I dont think you know elementx is sexual orientation.
Yes, my orientation came up a few times when I was complaining about the use of "[email protected]" in the threads.
My question is how do you get hurt playing the wii?
He was playing the Wii with his daughter (who hopefully doesn't have an addictive personality like him) and she whacked him with the Wii Remote.
That means it's his daughter's fault. He hot hurt by his own daugter? How humiliating! This just in: don't play Wii boxing while facing your opponent in real life.
Now where's Jack Thompson... he might have something to say about how the Wii is now dangerous, since it teaches children to beat their parents.
its just a toy
Exactly. It is something of a fad. it has the potential to be more but I think Nintendo found their niche and they seem content to play in it.
All consoles are toys. Only fanboys and 12 year old kids think otherwise. Keep using the excuse though. It has certainly done wonders for stopping Wii sales over te last two years.
Lol @ VoR comment XD All the hate and nothing took it down.
@ Nostradavis: Just a fad? HAH! you nintendo haters sure do stoop to low levels to deny Nintendo's dominance. When's the last time a fad occured for two years?
Well I guess it's Nintendos time to shine after a decade in the gutter.
@link, What upsets me about Nintendo is not their classic characters, it's the market they seem to be going after. They seem to be more interested in becoming a Tivo than staying true to their roots. And if you don't understand the statement I just made this conversation is over.
linkmasters...the back street boys lasted for more than 2 years...and we know how that ended up... something that sells the most hardly means it 'dominates'...While it does dominate the market in terms of making money...it doesn't make it the best thing in the market... People keep buying the Wii and thats great for Nintendo...but Nintendo fanboys come on here and act like its the best thing to ever happen to the industry...yeah...wiggling a remote is cool I guess...but I will take state of the art tech, online, sound, with the regular innovations to how you control it anyday... and for the record...the PS3 and 360 are no more 'toys' than a PC for the most part...the PS3 can basically run an entire home theater and play nearly every standard CD sized disc ever made...the 360 still has a unified online infrastructure that Japan simply doesn't understand yet... the Wii on the other hand is more like a 'toy' in that it has a gimmicky one up on competion (the motion control) and is cheap...making it comparable to the first wave of two nozzle super soakers when we were kids...
well there ya have it! im cancelling all my video game magizine subscriptions. ill stop watching G4. i think ill even stop reading video game articles online... i feel so foolish. to think, ALL I HAD TO DO WAS CONTACT VIDEO GAME EXPERT MARK WAHLBERG FOR ALL MY GAMING CONCERNS!
The only worthwhile comment of the article: "it’s clear to me that the Wii is a phenomenon — one that will likely continue with or without the support of the hardcore gamer."
how is this proving anything? ...such a load off Bcrap.
the thing with casual gamers , they don't stick around , and they sure don't see games as a priority unlike hardcore gamers which see games as the number one method of entertainment , and will spend a lot to feed their hobby this fact will come back on Nintendo and they will learn the lesson the hard way and we will see Nintendo in the near future trying so hard to win back the hardcore crowd
hehe I think Nintendo learned their lesson with n64 or especially with the gamecube that they cant compete with sony ms so they went their own way...Hardcore gamers showed Nintendo the middle finger when Playstation entered the gaming world. So they actually lost the hardcore crowd many years ago...They just have to spit out new casual trends like wii fit and wii music and they are golden. Its all good because they keep spitting out classics like mario and zelda. Just own a ps3/360 and a wii and you will get the best of both worlds thats my opinion :)
she must of been swinging her arms hard to hurt him with a wiimote...and i thought i was weak... *feels better about self*
NO ONLINE~ Marky, You can`t play with the Funky Bunch, across country-
... because if his daughter owned a PS3, and was playing MGS4. You never know what kinda crazy antics Mark Wahlberg would've gotten into!!!
what the hell are u talking about?
What wahlberg doesn't want you to know: he wanted to know what would happen if he put his head in front of his controller while playing Wii boxing. He then experimented and punched himself in the face. Shortly, he told the world. That's what I think happned. But seriously, you need to be really retarded to hurt yourself while moving your hands to control a game. " I got hurt while playing PONG" You see this is the part where sony droids and xbots find excuses to deny sales charts.
what a desperate article.
What is the point of this?
Mark Wahlberg FTW!
uhhhh i think we already knew this its obviouse that the wii is the very last choice for a hardcore gamer they'd go with a xbox 360 or a ps3. the wii is a family system i have nothing against it but it doesn't deserve to be in the console wars it is nowheres near the 360 or the ps3 level of gaming.
Ok, but the question is, do you think Nintendo will change their focus and rededicate themselves to their long time fans? Or are they locked on to the casual market for good?
he looks sooo hot
^^ That was just stupid.. And he is wrong too, the Wii is a gaming system, but it is by far the worst of the three..
Mark Wahlberg is awesome.
For someone who professes to having nothing against the Wii, I'm surprised Chad Lakkis would come to this conclusion rather than simply concluding that Mark Wahlberg doesn't play games for long periods of time. Getting hits to your online articles must be tough nowadays.
will u queers stop clicking on this article. i'm tired of looking at this pic. f*ck. no wonder you droids are looking forward to kiddy big world.
I don't care what the haters say. They're in denial because they spent more money on the 360s and the PS3s when they could've saved $200+ to get the best system.
480i FOR THE LOSS.
Stupid article and the wii is a real system. Some people just have to stop hating a system because it is beating the other systems down.
The article is not saying the Wii is not a real system. Learn to read. It is saying that if a man who says he doesn't play videogames because he has an "addictive personality" decides it is fine to play with the Wii, what does that then say about the Wii?
I was saying that the article is stupid because that is my opinion and the person that submitted the article wrote this - "If ever you needed proof that the Wii is not considered a real gaming system, this may be it". My response that "the wii is a real system" is to that statement. In response to your "learn to read" i have to say learn to interpret correctly.
" thebudgetgamer - 9 hours ago PM Track Ignore1.3 - wii is gaming although 7 out of ten games are shovelware. i like to think of it as gaming for noobs. also i think that even if there was no wii most of the people that buy them wouldn't buy a ps3 or 360 anyways regardless of game lineups or price point. we all know that the casual gamer will go away eventually its happened before. even if only 10% of the casual gamer become "hardcore" gamers that would be good for all gaming " Yeh coz there were no "casual" gamers on the ps2 uh huh. And absoultely nooo shovel ware on it....ya huh. If the ps3 was more popular it would have much more shovel ware like its little brother the ps2. The most popular console will always have the most. Thats why the gamecube had hardly any..because it wasnt popular
kind of a liberal usage of the word 'proves'. I never realized that proves = 'someone said something about something once'
