DiS On Vacation

I've been trying to make at least one post per week and so far it seems like this is a success. I will not be posting between now and January 30th, however, as I take a personal vacation. When I get back look forward to DiS's first full length feature and the start of Luna's commentaries. See you then!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl - A Prayer

Oh wise Nintendo Gods, we the followers of Wii, come before you today to beg your mercy. We present a sacrifice to you as a sign of our devotion and plead that you do not announce that Smash Bros Brawl is being delayed to March

Oh Gods, we grow weary of waiting and of the delays. Our Japanese counterparts receive your blessings so much sooner and after so much time we were true believers in your scripture of closely timed releases.

Please Gods, do not withhold your mighty blessings of ass kicking and face bashings. We understood the need for Galaxy but the time has passed.

In the name of Miyamoto, Amen.

Farewell Wavebird, We Knew Ye Well

With the Wii supporting most GameCube hardware it certainly came as a big surprise today to find out Nintendo has changed their Customer Service Center scripts to inform customers they do not intend to restock supplies of the best accessory of the last generation.

If you're anything like me you certainly are not a fan of corded controllers and can fondly remember the revolution brought on by the sudden freedom from worry and cords. No longer would anyone trip over the cord and bring your console rushing to meet the carpet (or worse, hardwood). Gone was the knot of cord formed by switching controllers in many multiplayer games. The Wavebird spelt a huge step forward for peripherals because not only was it sanctioned as a first party item, but it WORKED and damn well.

This only fit in better with the Wii. I popped the white panel off the console the day I bought it and firmly planted my three Wavebird receivers in the control ports. They don't go anywhere. It leaves me scratching my head as to why Nintendo would kill the Wavebird over the corded controller, which they state is still shipping, or at least wait for the Super Smash Bros Brawl rush to end. I'm left with once choice - get a fourth Wavebird while I can. Super Smash Bros Brawl will certainly kill off existing stock.
