That's my kind of dude. Have a sense of humor please and see the joke in it.

But damn, up to 20 years in prison just for using a Wii controller? it's not like he killed anyone.

You gonna tell me, you don't get mad sometimes and feel like doing a little bit of choking of someone? And some people are so damn senstive. They think you were trying to kill them, when you were just messing with them.

For all you know, they just got into a little scuffle and someone is making too big a deal about.

You ever seen the movie Ted Bundy, dark humor. But it's humor if you look at it that way.

wow you should consider help dude..

"You gonna tell me, you don't get mad sometimes and feel like doing a little bit of choking of someone? And some people are so damn senstive. They think you were trying to kill them, when you were just messing with them."

Dude I do get mad to the point that I wanna hurt someone but it has never come to the point that I would actually do it. I kinda find it disturbing that you would find the idea funny too, with that said, you seriously really need psychiatric help.

You must make frightening LBP levels.. very frightening.

madpuppy3152d ago

because the Wii is such a lame console and his girlfriend was making fun of him because he didn't get a man's console...or a PC. :P

RAGE3152d ago

What's so funny about someone getting killed?

Mayle3152d ago

don't worry she is still alive

HolyOrangeCows3152d ago

He choked her with his wii. LOL.

But seriously, that's not funny. Murder is never funny.

" you know he is just frustrated
because the Wii is such a lame console and his girlfriend was making fun of him because he didn't get a man's console...or a PC. :P"

Man your so cool...you are "the man"

Please, the Wii is a POS and you know it. it is the prius of consoles, sure, it makes parents feel like they did something good for their children and it is great for rehab centers and old folks homes but at the end of the day is is still an underpowered, gimmick machine. with to most pretentious, elitist fans. "at least the Wii is fun", "good graphics doesn't make a good game" and they would be right about the graphics statement but, it sure does make the game more enjoyable to play when it looks good too. call me when the big "N" gets tired of selling overpriced bathroom scales and wii-mote fixes and starts making real games.

"Please, the Wii is a POS and you know it."

Thats funny, u must be a comedian. What u said is news to me.

"it is the prius of consoles, sure, it makes parents feel like they did something good for their children and it is great for rehab centers and old folks homes but at the end of the day is is still an underpowered, gimmick machine."

Sp uve met 45 million people and finisihed all the AAA titles on the wii to make this judgement>>>>? O and the wii has many AAA titles.

"with to most pretentious, elitist fans."

O im taling to god here, sorry didnt realize....such an expert at games.

"at least the Wii is fun"

The most truthful thing uve ever said.

"good graphics doesn't make a good game"

No it doesnt. You're right.

"it sure does make the game more enjoyable to play when it looks good too."

Tetris is dull,...yet extremely addictive and fun. One of the most bougth games of all time.

"call me when the big "N" gets tired of selling overpriced bathroom scales and wii-mote fixes and starts making real games."

Well i wont call, because there is no need....since what u said is compete BS

madpuppy3152d ago

Nintendo doesn't even have to try to make good games for the Wii, the average owner is happy with Wii sports and will maybe buy Wii-play just to get the controller. sure, they sell consoles...at a profit because they use old tech wrapped in a new case and they do not market it to gamers, it is marketed to people who, when given a gamepad will "steer" the gamepad around like it is helping them play the game rather than just using the analog sticks and buttons. you know...like old people. that is why the wii-mote is so popular with the geriatric crowd. well, that and the fact that you don't need any skill to play most Wii games, just randomly jerk the Wii-mote around and win games! wow, it must make the easily amused feel so special.

".12 - what are you talking about??
Nintendo doesn't even have to try to make good games for the Wii, the average owner is happy with Wii sports and will maybe buy Wii-play just to get the controller. "

Like i said previously to which u didnt take notice - unless u have survey 45million people than ur assumptions do not mean they are fact.

"sure, they sell consoles...at a profit because they use old tech wrapped in a new case"

What about the Ds...? Psp...? thats old tech yet they both sell millions and millions. Hell the Ds's tech is basically the n64 and the psp is a ps2.

"and they do not market it to gamers, it is marketed to people who, when given a gamepad will "steer" the gamepad around like it is helping them play the game rather than just using the analog sticks and buttons."

Kinda like the flying game that they demonstarted the six axis with..loopy loop! The whole purpose of the controller was ti eliminate the need for analog sticks. Otherwise collecting star bits in mario galaxy wouldve been impossibly hard. It is also superior in aiming Fps's....the analog stick are slow and clunky in comparson. Its (the wii remote) comparable to the computer "mouse".

"you know...like old people. that is why the wii-mote is so popular with the geriatric crowd. well, that and the fact that you don't need any skill to play most Wii games"

Try getting gold medals in the training section of the tennis section in "wii sports", then try and tell me u dont need skill. By the way many kids and "old ppl" bought the ps2. Thats why games like buzz, singstar, horsez, bratz, barbie, and the eye toy sold so well.

"just randomly jerk the Wii-mote around and win games! wow, it must make the easily amused feel so special."

Well you really are an expert. Im sure u would know from thorough reasearch of playing the games. It's quite easy to pick some1 who has no clue, and some1 who has never played a wii for more than 5 minutes.

madpuppy3152d ago

useless console that couldn't. and yeah 45 million people that either fell for the hype (the poor souls that thought that the Wii was going to be a "revolution" in gaming and got shovelware or the people that would have been just as happy if the Wii had one game on a rom inside it and are very happy to play their "bowling machine", in other words, gamers that are so casual that the Wii and freecell are about the same in their minds.
and who cares about portables, they suck, the DS is more or less a pokemon' player and the PSP is an overpriced piece of hardware that turns your hands into arthritic hooks.

Every person that I know that has made the mistake of buying the Wii has after the shine wore off, went out and bought a PS3.

Just because something is popular doesn't mean it is better than everything else. Look at McDonalds, MS operating systems the i-Phone and ipod. POPULAR garbage.

madpuppy3152d ago

I respect that you don't use disagrees against me when we argue, I have alot of respect for that. I have never clicked on a disagree for one of your comments directed at me either.

kesvalk3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

and i thought this article was about a guy who tried to kill his GF...

don't you guys think that this is not the place to argue about things like that?

Mini Mario3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

"I happen to be an unfortunate that bought into the hype and own the little
useless console that couldn't."

Everyone has an opinion of what is good and bad, i find mario galaxy, metroid prime, wii sports, zelda, NMH, zach and wiki and many more very enjoyable. Regardless if u think its rehashing because every system relies on Ip's that have previously worked (final fantasy THIRTEEN for example, madden 92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99,01,02, 03,04,05,06,07,08,09...and thats just football let alone other EA sports games..and EA games in general...but there not the only ones).

I still find it hard to believe u dont think there is anything good on the wii when clearly there is lots,..if u gave it half a chance.

"and yeah 45 million people that either fell for the hype (the poor souls that thought that the Wii was going to be a "revolution" in gaming and got shovelware"

Well i and many people i know play theres alot, i cant speak for everyone but thats the general feeling amongst ordinary people i know. I for one will always buy multiple consoles because i like a broad range of games from any system (im open minded). These ordinary people i know also bought ps2's and ps1's at the time. The ps2 is a VERY casual system.

"or the people that would have been just as happy if the Wii had one game on a rom inside it and are very happy to play their "bowling machine",

The sega master system did that and included first alex kidd, and then later on sonic. Blasting sonic and alex kid into the public domain almost as high as mario at one point...and still today people remember those games. So even tho wii sports wasnt a rom inside the wii its pretty much the same giving the disc away with the machine.

Talking about giving away discs sony always gave out demo discs promoting there games with every machine bought. Now that it's all downloading, whos to say people even know how to do that, maybe sony should resort to discs with demos.. as people (ordinary people..."casuals" >> your terminology) would find that an easier option (but still keep the Downloadable demos for the advanced users too..obviously...beacause believe or not, not every1 can use a computer fluently).

"in other words, gamers that are so casual that the Wii and freecell are about the same in their minds."

Maybe thats why sony isnt selling as much...otherwise they would have the same buyers as the ps2. The sales would be exactly the same....if every ps2 buyer converted. Casuals run the show more than u think...and your right ...EXACTLY right, they dont know the difference>>? They know the difference in games...one has more games there kids can play than the other. (thats not to say the wii doesnt have AAA titles btw)

"and who cares about portables, they suck, the DS is more or less a pokemon' player and the PSP is an overpriced piece of hardware that turns your hands into arthritic hooks."

The DS is an awesome machine. Those touch screen mini games that came with mario 64 Ds were so additive i played them more than the core game. DOnt diss something u have not had much experience in playing. Phantom hourglass maybe the best handheld game...ever (for me, not speaking for every1). The touch screen adds ALOT to gameplay.

"Every person that I know that has made the mistake of buying the Wii has after the shine wore off, went out and bought a PS3."

Well by the way u talk i would assume the "people" u know wouldve bought the ps3 anyways, or eventually. U may have people that dont like it, but guess what i know plenty that love it. Playing the wii sports trianing mode alone had me and my friends hooked...still to this day. Every body is different and u dont know 45 million wii owners (again...why do u not read what i say...u cant speak for every 45 million wii owner thinking they think like u)

"Just because something is popular doesn't mean it is better than everything el"

Absolutley true. The xbox and gamecube were better (graphically...and both had much less "shovelware") than the ps2 and the dreamcast shoulve lasted much longer (based on its great games) .....but not with those casuals buying singstar, DDR and buzz! (plus TMNT to add to the mix)

ChickeyCantor3152d ago

I think the 20 years is flawed, i mean there are people out there who actually kill someone and only get 8 years or less.

But whatever, glad the system over here isn't really that corrupt
