Wow… this is crazy. All the talk about the Nintendo Wiivolution is just insane. Some people think it’s a big hoax setting us up for the true name at E3, which others are convinced it’s the real thing, and a few of us like myself just don’t care what they call it.

I do think of it as being odd that they would unveil the name before E3, and it would be interesting if we were being strung around until some massive announcement at E3.

Either way, they have the internet buzzing like crazy, and what’s everyone talking about right now? Not Sony, not Microsoft, but Nintendo. Nintendo is what is on everyone’s minds right now in the gaming world, for better or for worse.

Special Thanks to our forum community for pointing this site out!

Looks like the Revolution’s “nunchaku” attachment to its controller will also be tilt sensitive. At least, that’s the word over at [url=http://www.joystiq.com/2006/04/26/introducing-the-revolution-nunchaku-ki-ya/]Joystiq[/url]. If you ask me, this is pretty neat. It gives you even more control, especially more precise control, and will make it so you can possibly look in one direction and shoot in another in an FPS title. This seems quite neat to me.

Every time I turn around I see more and more reason for why I want a Revolution. Why is that exactly?

Since the Revolution’s announcement of its controls, I knew that Monkeyball would be on it. I personally hated using a joystick for Monkeyball, because it wasn’t precise enough for my needs. The new controls will be perfectly suited to the game, and I’m glad that it’s finally confirmed.

There’s a reason I haven’t been doing as much around here outside of my work day. I’ve been stuck at home addicted to Fable. I’m only about 12 hours into it so far, but I’m having a blast. I just want to keep playing and playing. I can’t stop!

I need help…

Probably not, but Lucent has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft for patent infringement in relation to the MPEG2 decoder in the 360. I doubt we’ll see 360’s disappear again. It’s more likely that Microsoft will be just settling out of court on this one.
