    Right, "hyperbole" is a language device whereby someone makes a metaphorical statement for effect, that is never intended to be taken literally.

    For example - "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse".

    That is hyperbole.

    Thanks.
    Thanks for that, what would be the correct language device to describe OTT exaggeration which can't be taken seriously?

    That's actually not as bad as it once was. They even give low scores to shit games! I still read it every month, but mostly for the features. Review style is very EG now, for better or for worse. Don't get me wrong, it's still easier to just google stuff. I just like reading magazines now and then.

    Yes, it's true that ONM is not that bad. I started reading it a few months ago and quite like it. It does have some interesting features. I stopped reading games magazines year ago but I do like to get ONM now and again. Although it seems like Future publishing are hell bent on going mostly digital before the bottom drops out of the printed mag market.

    I wonder just how they could possibly think that the Wii-U name was a good idea and not foresee the mass market confusion, shockingly incompetent.

    To be fair, they could have called it the FUCKTRON 5000 and still nobody would have paid it any attention.

    If I'm completely honest, I'd have bought the console if it were called that.

    The PSVita outsold the Wii U this week in Japan; the Wii U is in a very similar position to what the 3DS was in shortly after launch. Nintendo have launched 2 similar looking products with the only significant difference in the name (3) added to the DS and U added to the Wii.

    This week in Japan Nintendo had 15 software titles in the top 20 and sold 85,679 hardware units; compared to 5 software titles and 36,966 hardware units from Sony. The 3DS sales accounted for almost 60% of total hardware sales and had 11 titles the top 20.

    The same people who were ringing the death knell for the 3DS have now switched their campanology attention to the Wii U. Hopefully the Wii U can emulate the 3DS and outsell the PS4 by 9 to 1 next year; if a piece of shit like the 3DS can piss all over a superior handheld then a piece of shit like the Wii U can do the same with the PS4.

    Why hopefully? Why do you want the WiiU to do better than the PS4?

    For the same reason, why so many want the Wii U to fail.

    Iím looking forward to the PS4 and will certainly buy the console when it launches in 2014. I used the 3DS, PSVita comparison in my summarisation of the Wii U situation in Japan; if a so called underpowered handheld can turn things around with 30 million units sold worldwide in 2 years; then hopefully the Wii U can do the same.

    The Wii U is an excellent console and should be enjoyed by everyone. Maybe when Microsoft and Sony launch their new hardware it will generate interest towards the lower priced Wii U; which by then should have an affordable price tag and half decent software library.

    I donít want any console/video games manufacturer/developer/publisher to fail; as video games is my hobby. If Nintendo fail it would be bad for the industry; having 2 almost identical consoles playing relatively identical games; give or take the odd exclusive would be utterly boring.

    I think the loss of Nintendo would indeed be a terrible thing for the industry. Sadly I also think it happened some time ago.

    I want the PS4 to fail, its going to be a fucking nightmare tracking down an old football match on youtube when every other cunt with a PS4 is "sharing" their shitty FIFA matches.

    Basically, this. I want the Wii U to fail so I dont have to keep buying a new console to play the same six games every generation.

    I don't want the Wii-U to fail, but I expect it to. How's that?

    The old software only clichť; this certainly didnít work for Atari or Sega.
