Mario Kart Wii

Allured by Gamestop's "Turn in 2 Select Wii Games and Buy Mario Kart Wii for $10 deal," I picked up my copy and an extra controller shell Sunday. This game is a blast. The online ranking, match-ups, and content are leagues ahead of Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Despite several reviews, I think I prefer (as does my brother) using the Wii wheel. There's a bit of a learning curve, but it's much more immersive, not to mention rewarding when you win a race.

There's been a lot of hype about GTAIV this week. I'm eager to see how that sandbox of pretentiousness, violence and boredom ultimately stacks up against Nintendo's titular racer.

Pretentiousness is in the eye of the beholder and GTAIV will be more than worthwhile.

In fact, it will be gangsta as shit. So you can be a little bitch and go play Mario in your own sandbox!

yeah ...


ps: no offense:P

All the effusive reviews have tricked me before into buying the last two GTA games. I played them for 2 days. Fool me once, shame on, shame on you. You fool me --I can't get fooled again.

- some show with the words "poop" and "stick" in the title that Sean and Matt used to watch in 8th grade
