Wii Gots a Problem

I admit I was one of those who rushed to buy a Wii on day one, I never thought of getting a PS3 or other 'next gen' m/c. The idea of entering into a new level of man-machine integration was exciting.

Suffice to say, 2 years later, I am utterly disappointed to the point of selling the system at a loss. Only 5 games held my attention and those could have easily been ported to the DS (one of them was - Trauma Center). The rest of my gaming experience came in the form of destroying my childhood memories of great games from yesteryear. I kept paying Wii points to realize that I either evolved to a higher form, or that I was easily amused as a child.

Either way, a system that gets one good game every three months is reminiscent of the NEOGEO. I fear that the best days of consoledom have ended with the Dreamcast.

No Objection to Phoenix on the iPod

Phoenix Wright was made for the one handed-on the go-save anywhere gaming platform of the iPod. In fact, I might be inclined to buy an iPod if Phoenix was released on it.

1- Episodic, can buy one episode at a time.
2- 320x240 screen is perfect for Phoenix.
3- Can play your own music in the boring parts.
4- Save anywhere.
5- Don’t need both hands to play.
6- You can store all the episodes on system, instead of swapping carts.
I am sure that it will sell a million in under a week, are you listening CAPCOM?

What you can do to make this a reality:
1- Leave a comment below.
2- Contact gaming websites like Joystiq or Kotaku and get them involved.

Until it is released, you should try the series on the Nintendo DS. It is the only series I can really recommend. And if you are looking for a Virtual Console game on the Wii, try Lords of Thunder, you can't go wrong there.
