Incase you haven't already heard...
« on: April 28, 2006, 12:11:36 am »
You know Nintendo's new console? Well, now you don't. They have changed it's name (Revolution, for those who forgot), to... "Wii". "Gay" simply doesn't go far enough with this. I've been seriously questioning whether or not to get one (what with the remote-shaped controller and what not), and this "name" doesn't make it any more appealing.

What do you guys think of this?

"Wii"? Is that some kinda roman numeral they didn't tell me about?

Well, at least it's not "Gamecube 2". :-/

Beh. It's already the subject of so many jokes on IRC chatrooms and such. :-/
Quote
<+Ditto> "Mom, Robby is coming over. We're going to connect our Wii's and play multiplayer together for a few hours.
<&Izwzyzx> ;-;
<+Ditto> "
<%FMK> XD
<+Ditto> Wii is the base of jokes. Revolution repels pokes.
<&Izwzyzx> Wii is a joke in itself
There's more where that came from, too.

Apparently, "ii" is Japanese for "good", and I'm betting that the W was added on to make it be pronounced "we". Here's their "justification" on this crap:

Quote
Introducing Wii.

As in ?we.?

While the code-name ?Revolution? expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer.

Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else.

Wii will put people more in touch with their games ? and each other. But you?re probably asking: What does the name mean?

Wii sounds like ?we,? which emphasizes this console is for everyone.

Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Wii has a distinctive ?ii? spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play.

And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd.

So that?s Wii. But now Nintendo needs you.

Because, it?s really not about you or me.

It?s about Wii.

And together, Wii will change everything.

"Gamecube 2" would be much better than "wii". Much, much better.

I don't like it. Revolution sounded so cool, Wii sounds so... so... bleah. >.< I'll probably still get it, but Nintendo's decision on the name still frustrates me.
First to discover and name the following glitches:
* Super Glitch
* ZZAZZ Glitch
* Q Glitch
* Level-100+ Glitch Evolutions and Moves

Despite the horrible name...I'll still get it.  At first, I was skepitical of the remote controller.After reading Game Informer's article about Red Steel I see good opertunites.(Although, I personally don't like fist person shooters.) Also in Nentendo Power, I realized it would probobly be like the DS. They said,"When the DS first came out, touch control was shoehorned into every game. But now ther leaving it out in games that dont need it." They think that the remote abilities will be left out of some games for the Revolution Wii.  That comforts me.   If you read this, you're probobly dead. ;D
