It has been a few months since I sold my Wii for an insane profit. I will admit that there are things I miss about it (mainly the Virtual Console and a couple GC games). I thought about picking up another one if the library of games had improved ...

I was dread wrong.

Was in Toys R Us today and they had about 10 Wiis. So Robyn and I looked over the to the cabinet where the games were to see if it'd be worth buying again. Wow. Whoever doesn't believe the system is aimed at children is in serious denial. It was like we stumbled into a land of lollipops and farts. There was nothing that interested me even as a casual gamer ... Mario, maybe. Even the thought of the new Smash Bros. got me thinking, but everything else was just too cutesy.

I applaud Nintendo for doing so well in the business with only a gimmic and steady stream of games for kids. It is about time they made a comeback, but at the same time they're still in the same trap as before: none of the big names in game design/publishing takes the system seriously. This leads to more cheap, shitty games and less AA titles.

Endless Ocean is the bee's knees! Nintendo seems to be coming out with more adult-friendly games.

Well, if the Wii had 10 more titles like that, I'd be happy. I couldn't resist picking up one when Target had 20 in stock. I need extra money and fools are still paying $500 for them on eBay.

I second Rayman, that's a great game.
