Seriously, Nintendo?I'm actually starting to wonder what the hell is up with Nintendo.
After the whole Mario e-mail incident, I thought Nintendo was done surprising me.
I've been giving them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe, just maybe, they knew something we all didn't.
Given the fact that they are rich as F&%@ right now, this could be a possibility. They must have some knowledge of gaming and popular culture.
Still, they did decide to develop a less powerful system. They did decide to focus more on kid and family-friendly games rather than the hardcore playerbase. They did decide to use a quirky motion control remote system.
Hell, they changed the name from "Revolution" to "Wii".
One starts to wonder if Nintendo actually does have its finger on the pulse of our community or if they're just making this shit up as they go.
Especially the name "Wii". It's hard to get past the fact that they would name their console to sound like a guy's wang.
Maybe "Wang" was already trademarked.
Also, the phallic shaped controller leans toward the "what the f&%@ are these people doing" side of the argument.
So, you're shaking your plastic penis at your Wii.
Maybe all of this shit just got past the approval committee. Maybe they've never actually been on or near the internet, so they weren't aware how readily our people can point out such things.
After all that happened though, they must have put someone in charge of checking these things out. They had to have hired someone to go through game titles being released for their console to look out for this stuff.
Even the third party shit. They'd have to be freaking insane not to be watching like hawks for more obscure sexual references.
Seriously, Nintendo? Seriously?
What the hell?
Maybe we should get somebody on this. You know, pay a guy to sit at a desk and read game titles looking for shit like "Money Shot" or "Meat Whistle".
Christ, it's like I'm the only sane person left on the planet.
