Because my brother got me thinking about video games...

[Phoenix] Office sex
I called Timmy while I was at work today (they don't seem to have any problems with people being on the phones while working, as long as they're still doing their work, and I still managed over 200 claims today) and talked to him for his birthday. For an HOUR. And as happens whenever I talk to him, we ended up rambling about video games for almost the entire time. I resisted shoving Phoenix Wright at him too much but we decided it would be okay for me to buy him the first one for his birthday, see if he likes it, and buy the others if he does.

Anyway, every time I think about video games now, I think about how much more awesome Nintendo is than PS3 and X360. Here, have an article. <3

Personally, I think the innovation of the gameplay in the Wii outdoes anything the PS3 and X360 have (not that they're not good, just that they're almost the same damn thing as the last generation of systems with much better graphics, basically) for a fraction of the price, and that I'd take my DS Lite over the PSP any day of the week, because touching is so much more fun than button-mashing. <3

I know! And Silent Hill, and Devil May Cry... there are a few games I'd be tempted to buy a system for, but a $600 system?! ;_; Fuck no. But I need Silent Hill like the burning!

We still only have the PS2 and the DSs (one each). If we were going to get a new console though I think we'd go for the Wii.

The Wii would definitely be the one I'd recommend, especially for groups/families. The party games are supposed to be awesome, it's impossible NOT to have a good time while watching each other act like fools. :D And it's so much cheaper than the other two it's not even funny.

DS Lite = best handheld EVAH.

Cannot disagree re. the DS. I never wanted a handheld till I saw those :)

How can you not love a system that lets you touch it, caress it, blow on it, whisper sweet nothings to it, and is damn sexy to boot? And all those people who said it's just a gimmick can bite me. :D

Your icon made me giggle. He IS cute!
