Wii Pray

This video has been doing the rounds a bit lately – it’s part of a clever campaign for the game Dante’s Inferno. The campaign almost purely makes fun of Christian culture.

Here’s one of the earlier advertising stunts…

They protested against themselves.

How does the Wii work? I’m sure there’s all sorts of Nintendo technical jargon to explain it – but I suspect it’s all lies and this is closer to the truth

X-rayted consoles

Some guy has decided it would be a good idea to x-ray consoles and their controllers and then put the results on Flickr. He’s probably right. It does look pretty cool.

Shirt of the day: Nintendo wheeze

This one comes from a site called NerdyShirts – so I’m not sure what it does for my campaign not to be considered a nerd. Anyone who ever played the original Nintendo Entertainment System will appreciate this. Otherwise you need to know that to get the pesky things to work sometimes you had to blow in the cartridge.

Here are some others that I almost liked as much from the same site.

Wii can fix it

Wiis are fun. But as we’ve seen before – they’re also dangerous. While the name was probably a branding mistake for the English speaking world the revolutionary motion sensor controllers make them a great Christmas present… Some people are probably too stupid for computer games. And that’s sad. Like this lady who bought her children a Wii for Christmas…

“My neighbors which I don’t really know to well to begin with, got their kids a Wii for Xmas. They got no games for it, but they did get a Classic Controller as well as an additional Nunchuck Combo and a carrying case. They asked me what games they recommended, and I decided to recommend them the Animal Crossing City Folk/Wii Speak bundle, Wario Land Shake It,Mario Kart Wii, and Super mario Galaxy. I also recommended them some VC games including Super mario World, and Sonic 2 8-bit.

Anywho, the Mom asks me what VC is, and I told her. I told her that all she needed to do was put in her credit card when prompted on the Shop Channel, and get the amount of points she wanted. I also told her what WiiSpeak is, and how to connect her Wii to the internet via an ethernet connection.

Anywho, I got a call today from the mom telling me that the Wii is not working. I asked what was wrong and you won’t believe it………

SHE PHYSICALLY PUT 3 CREDIT CARDS INTO THE DISC SLOT.
HOW STUPID DO YOU HAVE TO BE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”

If you want to read the whole story there’s a bit of a language warning – but the woman is holding the neighbour responsible – and wants him to pay for the repair.

Controlled Evolution: Intelligent Design?

How many of these have you used? Are designs getting clunkier and more complex? Or more intuitive?

Really, it’s just a cool pic.

Here’s the original post – complete with family tree

Wiimote controlled television

Whoops. Make sure you’re keeping those safety straps on. There have been photos of wiimote damage posted – and funny videos of wiimote tragedies. But to Gizmodo’s knowledge this is the first video of said carnage.
