I bet it's not called "I've Got a Space Bar!"
2006-04-27 02:13:32 PM

Fuuny, but screwed up the 'look' of my queue.

Perrin Kaplan, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Affairs for Nintendo of America, told me. "A lot of thought went into the name."
Then we went with something my 3 year old said.

gonads and strife... the taste of a new generation.
2006-04-27 02:18:12 PM  
I get it. That's a keeper.

When you're a kid and you wanna go Weee, but you ain't got drugs yet....

When you're a kid and you wanna go "weeeee".
But you ain't got drugs yet!
You hold on for your life,
Hold on to your little gonads... and strife...
Seriously, they need to sell this thing with a stuffed squirrel with the guts of the controller built into. "Wheee!"
2006-04-27 02:22:46 PM  
gonads and strife are the new mario and luigi

Action Replay Nick: I got your joke submitter, and it made me smile.

Are we supposed to read your mind in order to answer this question?
2006-04-27 02:28:40 PM  
God damnit, Submitter! Now everyone in my english class is looking at me and wondering what the fark I'm laughing at.
2006-04-27 02:30:09 PM  
Well done, submitter I hope you get the green light.

big golf clap.
2006-04-27 02:32:14 PM  
I liked this headline.
2006-04-27 02:33:17 PM  
Clever clever... My hat's off to submitter
2006-04-27 02:33:26 PM

kingMountain: work the head.

2006-04-27 02:39:04 PM  
Well done, submitter. I'm a little ashamed to say I got it immediately.

/gonads and strife
2006-04-27 02:39:11 PM  
*golf claps* for submitter!
2006-04-27 02:39:41 PM  
sparky1013: thats why god gave me a mouth...

2006-04-27 02:42:29 PM  
OK, I guess I'll be the one to admit that I obviously missed a good thread...someone want to clue me in on the joke?
2006-04-27 02:42:58 PM  


I kinda like the name, it's definately different.
2006-04-27 02:43:49 PM  
The Joke Pops, I think.
2006-04-27 02:44:02 PM  
It wasn't a thread. It's an ancient website with a freaky video of a freaky song.
2006-04-27 02:46:21 PM  
Oh, that might be NSFW, if your boss is uptight about medical diagrams of penii.
2006-04-27 02:47:03 PM

you've got an interesting spirituality.

Mercutio879: The Joke Pops, I think.

2006-04-27 02:54:49 PM  
I've been trying to remember how many years ago I saw that ... many, many.
2006-04-27 02:56:32 PM  
The Joke Pops, I think.
damn, I thought he was making fun of the teenage girls in TRL or something. Is that show still on even?

I wonder if Nintendo will use that squirrel in their marketing campaigns.
2006-04-27 03:07:30 PM  
lol, excellent job submitter. I was going to make a gonads and strife joke but I'm a bit late.

Yo! I saw R2D2 on the street,
And it was like...

I swear, it's like they don't want to sell any of these damn things.
2006-04-27 03:14:13 PM  
The wireless unit, using internal sensors, will translate wrist and hand movements into onscreen actions.

I smell a flop coming on....

However, it could pay off those people that play games and lean all around and move their hands all around while trying to control the game. Those people are funny. Now they'll just have an excuse to be doing it.
2006-04-27 03:15:25 PM  
They will sell well and make good money, even just having the backcatalogue will make it worth the low cost. I looks forward to playing some fun games at 480p for cheap. /IMHO
I can't be happier that they're going a different path, if I want to play PC style shooters I'll run em on my PC. At least my computers have a longer life than ~4(xbox) or ~5(ps) years to justify the cost.
2006-04-27 03:18:56 PM  
I really hope the CEO of Nintendo gets up on stage at the E3 press conference and says "Just kidding! You didn't REALLY think we'd call it that, did you?"
2006-04-27 03:24:46 PM  
And Nintendo is on pace to come in third in the Console Olympics for the third generation in a row...
2006-04-27 03:28:07 PM  
What a dumbass headline.


2006-04-27 03:29:30 PM  
Ok, I guess there is some joke I'm unaware of...just glanced at the thread.

/still don't like
2006-04-27 03:30:50 PM  
Spectacular headline!
2006-04-27 03:34:38 PM  
See this, superfly66103; may be slightly NSFW for language (and weirdness).
2006-04-27 03:34:47 PM  
Is it true the cost of the dev kits, the full ones, will only be $2k? If so I have high hopes for a huge amount of content on the system, it's already a half dozen consoles in one, for half the price of the competitors. It's smaller, and it's not a gimped PC clone.

Try to stay positive about their move, remember that most of the best games of all time are console by nature, the ones we grew up on. We did not play 6 different ww2 shooters and call that fun.


They gave all this madness steam while MS and Sony were making money being what I dislike as an adult; I will always be in their debt.

////Goldeneye, direct port on the new system FT-MF-W!
//Ecco the dolphin from the genesis! Whoooo
2006-04-27 03:35:43 PM  
From what I've seen, the dev kits will be damn cheap because they're essentially up-powered GameCube dev kits, Epyn.
2006-04-27 03:44:15 PM  
Screw the name. I don't care if it's called "Iwannasuckyourcockandlickyourtaintbaby" or "shiatonasliceofbreadtoppedwithpukedressing".

I won't play a console with controllers that farked up.
2006-04-27 03:45:11 PM  
Gonads and strife?
