-President John Adams

Treaty of Tripoly, article 11


For those that want an easier experience;

As for the video itself; Assuming this isn't a belated reupload, the Onion/Gameological Society seems a bit late on the ball for this one. The Wii U has finally started rolling out with titles, with a steady flow of games being established in the following three months. That doesn't excuse the initial lack of games, but a big part of comedy is context and the context of the Wii U having no games might as well be gone.

The Onion shouldn't have anything to do with videogames. Their reviews are a joke, in fact they're probably the only funny things on their site.

Despite that I did like the Onion Movie, if only for Steven Seagal.



I just want to say, that part where he said "It promises to turn this(picture of various devices), into this(Wii U stuff ONLY)": That's a good thing, in terms of having gadgets all compatible with the same machine.

Otherwise this video is pointless. He took every stereotype about Nintendo and threw it into one video.

The Onion is hit or miss for me. This was a miss. Most of the time their videos and articles are misses. Comedy is hard to do right.

I saw it put best as "Tim and Eric lite". That's a harsher put-down than any of us could think of.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

HAHAHAHA so true!



When I saw the thread title I thought it was talking about Pikmin Onions.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.
