Welcome to my blog. I'm sort of new to this whole blogging thing, so I haven't figured out how to update my custom greeting. That, or I am just lazy and don't really care. Either way, you're stuck looking at this stupid message and you know what? I don't care! That's right: I don't care! Otherwise, I'd obviously edit this out. But, uh... yeah. I didn't. Or did I?

Bah. Who cares about the stupid price of the Wii? That will come down eventually. Who cares about Wii Sports being packed in? At some point they'll have a package that won't include it. Who cares about the high price of peripherals? You can always buy them used. But somehow I doubt Virtual Console prices will EVER fall.
What a ripoff. Considering the Virtual Console was my primary interest in regards to the Wii, this just makes me sad. So much for amassing a huge collection of retro games. And time to start looking for a real NES. We all know Nintendo ain't gonna help me relive the past.

I read on WikiPedia that Castlevania: SotN will be on Xbox Live Arcade. If it's true, that's pretty cool. Much cooler than these prices for Virtual Console.
