    Hey guys, my name is Alex from the gaming website and podcast awinnerisyouuk.com and I'm conducting my first post on these here forums to ask all you lovely Eurogamer folks to answer a short 16 question survey to help out my university dissertation. I guess a lot of you have got a Wii (or at least had one), but even if you don't I'd still appreciate you taking the time to fill out my survey as it'll really help me out. Seeing as I run a video games website myself, I feel that gives me the chance to offer a little incentive for everyone who takes part. That incentive is that I will award a random participant a FREE brand new OnLive console (Although it's a PAL one, so you'll need an adaptor in the US). Yeah, free. Just enter your email at the end of the survey and I'll pick a random winner (won't use your email for anything else, I'm just a student in need of some help!) So please take part, get other people to take part and be as honest as you can (oh and check out my website and podcast while you're at it!). Hit the link to take part. Thanks guys! http://kwiksurveys.com?u=nintendowii

    If that's your idea of paragraph and sentence construction, your dissertation is fucked.

    Wii, it sounds like piss. Hahaha
    No one will ever buy that.

    Imagine walking into a shop and say
    "I would like a Wii please"

    Hahaha

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Xenoblade isn't third party, Nintendo own the majority of Monolith so it's first party. Or maybe second party, I'm not sure. Not third though. Definitely first party published.

    Rare were 100% owned by Nintendo at one point too, weren't they? Monolith are definitely not third party though, I think we can agree on that much.

    Without doubt. Not to mention the most disappointing, even it's supposed saviour and validation of existence; Skyward Sword, isn't very good tbh.

    Certainly doesn't make the Wii a console that ever needed to exist or one that ever justified its awful control scheme and mostly terrible software.

    Edit: I'm not qualifying this statementby going into detail of the exceptions to the above of which there are a few (but not enough)

    The wii caused motion control and soccer mom gamers. Anyone who owns one should kill themselves.

    Definitely the worst Nintendo console (excluding the Virtual Boy of course), but both Mario Galaxy games and DKC Returns piss all over 95% of other games from a great height.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Wasn't swarmed by tedious FPS games and online n00bs, so it had something going for it.

    About as significant as your face...
  • Deleted user 20 March 2012 16:17:43
    Yeah, either way works for me :D
  • Deleted user 20 March 2012 16:17:53
    It seems that every other uni dissertation is on videogames nowadays.

    History essay? How Call of Duty teaches us about WW2!
    Sociology essay? The social aspect of Call of Duty!
    English essay? The narrative of Call of Duty!
    Media Studies? I'm going to be on the dole with this degree so I will play lots of CALL OF DUTY
    Physics project? CALL OF DUTY
