Hey! What’s wrong with this world. People aren’t buying a gaming console with a tablet for a controller like Nintendo expected. It is almost like they can play a game on a tablet without having to buy a console. Gasp! Farting sounds. Whomp whomp.
How gorgeous is this shit? Just watch the vid. No word if this is exclusive to the Wii-U yet, but damn if the touch mechanic doesn’t look fun to play with.

Stack another game onto the pile of worthwhile adventures I’ll never embark on, me being 3DS-less and all. New Super Mario Bros. 2, dropping this August.

Remember that time when Shigeru Miyamoto announced he was retiring and then everyone shit themselves and Nintendo shit too and then he wasn’t retiring anymore? Yeah, last month was awesome. Miyamoto still is kickin’, and he’s working on an original game. Hell yeah, Shiggy!
I feel like I should be more excited for Skyward Sword. In fact, I’m not even planning on getting it right away. My how times have changed. The trailer just continues this ennui on my behalf. It’s pretty boring, boring, boring. Then the last five seconds seem pretty fucking swell. Then it ends.

Nintendo is bleeding money out of its orifices. It’s a different concept, because since they launched the Waving Phallus-ii back in 2006 they’ve been printing money just to waste it wiping their cruddy bums on. These days? These days they be spittin’ losses everywhere. Double what was expected. Frowns. Frowns afoot.
Even previous to this news. November to my wallet: fuck you. November to my school work: fuck you. November to my sanity: fuck you. The month in games was already too much, now it’s threatening to break me. I never thought I’d actually lament a much-anticipated game’s release date as being too close, but here it is.
When it rains Nintendo Wii 2 rumors, it fucking pours. After yesterday’s news that the console is going to be revealed at or before E3, today we get a new crop of rumors. Most interesting is that the controller is going to up the ante in douchebag gimmicky nonsense.
