Harrison expects big things from Mii Channel

In a recent article by Reuters, a few new details relating to the Wii's fascinating Mii Channel have been unearthed and Nintendo America VP George Harrison has shared some interesting comments.

Upon first turning on the console, Wii owners will find their Miis in the 'Mii Plaza', which is essentially a virtual waiting room where up to 100 characters can inhabit.

A further 10 Miis will be able to be stored on a Wii-mote, for transportation to a friend's console. In addition to this, they'll also be able to be sent to other consoles via the Wii Message Board service.

"A younger player can create a caricature of their parents, and it might entice them to play (a game)," said George Harrison, Nintendo's senior vice president of marketing, who anticipates that the Mii Channel will narrow the gap between older and younger gamers

That character creation and Mii channel looks generic and stupid. Looks cheap and it does not make me want to purchase a Wii.

that is you are pointless. why even bother to comment if your just going to be hating? If this was the breaking point on buying a Wii or not then you weren't going to buy one in the first place.

This does seem very fun. Having your own character instead of just a name. I for one am looking forward to this and can't wait to be playing

Zelda Replay: Majora's Mask

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Is Ocarina of Time as legendary as I remembered it? For the most part, yes. In spite of a handful of missteps — a few obtuse puzzles, some tedious backtracking, and a clunky stealth sequence — I don't believe the last 23 years have been unkind to it. Ocarina remains a brilliant example of the medium, a landmark game that shaped the future of its own franchise and 3D gaming in general. After more than two decades it retains its inventive dungeon design, challenging puzzles, dynamic combat, wistful storyline, unforgettable music, and empowering open-air freedom. I feel confident calling it one of the greatest games of the fifth generation, even if I'm no longer prepared to list it among the five best games ever made."

Pure unadulterated fun. They don't make them like this anymore...especially not the triple A industry.

Back when video rental was a thing, I rented out Majoria's Mask, I never finished it though. I did buy the 3DS version before the eshop shutdown, so maybe one day I'll finally play through the whole thing, it's amazing how well these games hold up though. I briefly played Ocarina of Time for a while and it was really fun.
