Guhh...I was so psyched about the Wii six months ago, but consider me officially on the hater bandwagon.

One thing that annoys me about gaming sites/publications (and I assume snerds, although I don't know any), is that they'll hype up all this crap because the Wii has so few games coming up, and act as if people actually want sequels to third-rate "franchises" like Battalion Wars and Mario Strikers.

And, sorry, Super Smash Brothers is only a little better than the rip-off game on Live Arcade with fuzzy animals, and that cost $10--if I wanted that kind of game, I'd get the 360 one. And they're not adding Wii controls to the new Super Smash, right? Yeah, wouldn't want to fiddle the perfect balance of SSB's awesome two attack per character system.

Day of Crisis could be a good B-game, but I paid $10 for Disaster Report on PS2, and don't expect me to pay more for its sequel.

And I don't even wanna know about the Wii Health Pack. If it's what it sounds like, it makes sense--the logical analog to all the worthless and endless "brain training" DS games are Wii body training ones.

And yeah, I'm pumped for Mario Galaxy, but give me a date first, all right? I played the first two Metroid Primes, I can wait for a third--it's not as if an FPS with a keyboard and mouse-style setup is anything new, except for Nintendo fans who dealt exclusively with the Gamecube and N64 controllers for the last decade.

I realize this is only Nintendo's games, that there's the third party game where you play as a water drop and the other one by the guy who did the laughably bad but pretty cool-looking Killer 7 and that EA is "super committed" to the Wii even though all we'll be getting for the next year is stuff like the Godfather with a few added motion controls blah blah blah...

I am officially not buying a Wii until, at the earliest, mid-2008.
