W is for Wii

I have to admit, I don’t play my Wii as much as the PS3 or Xbox 360. But I still love it and won’t trade it for anything. Why? Because Nintendo makes good consoles. The Wii isn’t as powerful as the other two, but their games are still great. Games like Twilight Princess, Mario Galaxy, Donkey Kong Country Return, the Resident Evil rail shooters and Super Smash Bros are just a few. And of course the new Zelda, Skyward Sword, is coming this year. As long as Nintendo still makes Zelda games, I will buy their consoles.

In fact, when the Wii was released, I stood in line for hours and hours to get one. I wasn’t even crazy about the idea of motion control, but I wanted one because I believed Nintendo would make it awesome. And they did. But I still regret that the system became a wasteland of crappy third party “casual” games. Many of them are just terrible and made some gamers feel that the Wii was the “lesser” console. But, you still can’t beat their exclusives. They have made quality Nintendo titles since the 1980’s.

But the big news lately has been the new Nintendo console that should be released in 2012. It’s suppose to be way more powerful then the Wii, rivaling the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s suppose to cost $350.00 to $400.00. There might be a touchscreen on the controller. I’ve heard it called Stream, but the name will probably change. We will find out more at E3 in June.

As for now, I will just wait for Skyward Sword with my Wii remote in hand.

Exclusive Wii Video Games Releasing in Time for Christmas

Posted in Consoles, Games with tags , on October 2010, by residentgamer

With all the news about Xbox 360’s Kinect and PS3’s Move, let’s not forget about the Wii. At this year’s E3, Nintendo announced some highly sought after sequels to popular titles.  I literally jumped up and down over Donkey Kong, yeah I really did. Why? Because I have fond memories of DK Country on the N64. I’m beyond excited that a new Donkey Kong will be released by Christmas 2010.

Also, Kirby finally gets a long overdue game with Kirby’s Epic Yarn. The fabric texture world of the game looks amazing. Another Nintendo game that fans have been waiting an update of, GoldenEye, will be released this Christmas as well. So don’t count the Wii out yet. There are great exclusives coming out soon. It’s not Zelda, but I’ll take what I can get. 🙂
