Totes! Sakurai made the mannequin cool again. Bring back the mannequin! This new monstrosity is a textbook example of the uncanny valley.

I wonder if that means that Smash will have new one instead by the time it comes out?

Wii Sports Club is obviously a desperation move and slapped together last month

You have no idea if that's true or not.

Nah. Maybe as a skin. Fans have already rallied behind the current implementation.

I'm still pretty shocked at how good of a deal this is. I think the time-sensitive free download (through January) drives home the point that Nintendo wants to get Wii Us* in homes NOW, and this looks like a good way to do it. But they better market the fudge outta this. People need to know!

*That looks really weird. Is this the right way to pluralize Wii U, or should I add a technically-incorrect apostrophe?
I had the same problem (while making the same point, apparently). Wii U-nits?

Wii Y'all?

Baseball could work with timing alone, provided they make the pitching and pitch-reading more nuanced. Or maybe they could analyze both the backswing and the swing. Or they could even use tilt to adjust the swing height? I'm so disappointed that sports devs on the Wii never perfected this stuff.

Hey, Kris, quit pissing on everybody's par... Oh, you're being positive! Carry on, then.

So I just got to watch the video and now I see that you can't make your own club, it's just regional. Hmm, I do hope there's a way to play against friends easily.

@Anand I think this is why Nintendo always adds on a word like "system" or "console" so that they don't have to call them Wii Us, they call them "Wii U systems" or "Wii U consoles." They did the same thing with the Wii, never saying "Wiis."

@Jargon Well of course, nobody knows anything about what goes on behind the scenes at any company, but that's what this looks like to me.

Although, sometimes Nintendo releases Iwata Asks that detail their processes with a certain game, and these can sometimes be a little too honest, so perhaps there could be one for this sometime and we'll see.

Ugh, disagree totally. I wish they'd use this new model in Smash. I prefer a slightly more human person.

@Mop it up

Knowing Nintendo it probably took all 7 years to get Wii Sports online.

Hello human. I am human also. You will not be harmed if you let your guard down. The extra joint in the middle of my humerus is not utilized for combat purposes.

Well, if you want to hear something negative on the topic, how about this?: This product should have come out 7 years ago and should have been called Wii Sports.

Ouch!


I wonder how the onomatopoeia for hurting yourself varies from one language to another...

I'm looking forward to the Negative World Wii Sports Club. We can have weekly tournaments and stuff!
