Excited About Mario Kart Wii…What Are Your Plans?

In a mere 3 days Wii owners everywhere will take the race online and blast it out with another fantastic Mario Kart title. Early reviews for the title are already promising (IGN gave it an 8.5 and 1up gave it a respectable B+), so it’s no doubt gamers everywhere will be flocking to their local gaming pub to pick up the game.

While we have to sit here and wait, (very impatiently I may add), I was wondering what your plans were for the games release. Personally I will probably be racing online with a lot of you from our forums page, but if you aren’t a member yet (you should be ashamed of yourself for not joining our awesome community), what are your plans?

3 days gamers…3 days!

Quick Observation…Wii Has A TON of Games

Here’s a quick observation…I just got back from my local Gamestop (a co-worker just pre-ordered WiiFit) and I noticed that the Nintendo Wii has a TON of games. M&M’s racing, Harvey Birdman, Some odd title that retailed for 12.99, Kaboki, Jet Ski racing and many more (I can’t remember many of the odd titles I spotted) that filled the Wii wall chalk full of titles.

Has anyone else noticed just how many titles the Wii has? Do you think that this helps system sales or makes us gamers grow mad with the amount of “Weird” titles available for the system…. Just an observation.

Wii is a Virus…

In a recent interview with IGN, Epic Games President Michael Capps shared his viewpoint on
Nintendo’s Wii console. He acknowledges Nintendo’s fabulous success, but he also expresses great disappointment in the Wii.
