Mii, Wii and the Agonii of Defiit

I'm sure you've read my travel tales of woe from last week by now. If you haven't, check it out so you can feel better about your traveling experiences. Now, while the traveling itself was about as fun as having King Kong administer a colonoscopy, hanging out with everybody in Richmond was real nice. It also marked the first time that we got to really sit down and play the Nintendo Wii. Sure, we were at the big Wii launch party here in L.A., but with so many people there, we didn't get to play any of the games for long enough. That all changed in Richmond, cuz Proto and his roommates have a Wii with four controllers.

The two games we played were "Rampage: Total Destruction" and "Wii Sports". Rampage was actually a game I brought along with me cuz a generous I-Mockery viewer got it for me off o' my Wish List (thanks again Chris!). The game is actually a lot of fun, especially with four people playing at once, and there are some damned cool characters in it. I wouldn't recommend playing it without the nunchuck controller though cuz it's too hard to control your monsters without it. It's also got the original Rampage and "Rampage: World Tour" games included, so it should easily satiate all your rabid smashing needs.

Wii Sports was both a lot of fun and frustrating depending on what games I played. Tennis was easily my favorite of the bunch since it seemed to respond exactly like it should and it also resulted in plenty of shouting. Good times, good times. Bowling was alright, but I definitely need more practice with that one. My official "I suck" game would have to be boxing. Man, I could barely get my guy to even throw a punch. I was just a big wobbling target. Proto knocked my ass out in about 20 seconds. 20 SECONDS! Granted he's had more practice at the game, but come on... I should be able to last longer than that. Here's basically how it went, no matter who I fought:

This is the exact speed we played at.


Oh well. I may have sucked at Wii Sports boxing and been knocked out faster than anyone in history, but they can't take one thing away from me...

Look! It's Mii!

My "Mii" character rules. Especially since I had to use a beauty mark to make the mouth.

Survey: Since there aren't a whole lot of things you can do to customize your "Mii" character, what customization options should Nintendo add to the Wii system in the future? More hats? Weapons? Capes? Let's hear your ideas!

p.s.: you guys rule for sharing your immense knowledge of Butterscotch. We'll have to start having more discussions like that on here from now on.

tattoos, wheelchairs, sorrow, scabies


Shockz (Guest) on 02/22/2007 8:02 pm

Scars, wing-a-ling wings, buff arms, dilated eyes.. RoG, I am a good fan of you as well-quite. I like all the mockeries. Except for the over-phallic ones.

P.S. Please make a blog about the death of that horrid little piece of crap, Anna Nicole Smith. Seriously. It's an achievement to have her destroyed like you wanted.


Aks (Guest) on 02/22/2007 8:28 pm

They should have a camera like on Xbox live. Thatd be the shit to see yourself on a video game.


Chojin (Guest) on 02/22/2007 8:50 pm

A realistic face would be the worst thing ever and totally not the point of Miis ;


ElSingario (Guest) on 02/22/2007 9:08 pm

The first thing they need to add is a fedora. I have weirdass hair, so I usually go out in one of those, but since the game lacked both the previously mentioned hat and my indescribable hair style, I had to settle for a pompadour.

Rose (Guest) on 02/22/2007 9:36 pm

You should be able to have a crossdressing mii D:
Or at least a knife sticking out of your fo'hade.


Will (Guest) on 02/23/2007 12:11 am

Some actual clothing (as opposed to different shirt colors) couldn't hurt. And the ability to make your Mii 8 feet tall.


protoclown (Guest) on 02/23/2007 12:21 am

You DEFINITELY just suck at the game... :P


SunnyD (Guest) on 02/23/2007 4:03 am

just one word:



Soude (Guest) on 02/23/2007 10:04 am

I would have to say wheelchair, midget and cowboy options. It would be great to have these and more disabilities included into the game for people with more diverse lifestyles


Sean (Guest) on 02/23/2007 10:40 am

More hair. THe ability to use multiple facial detals at once (like blush and five o clock shadow) And instead of just choosing one of the stock skin colors, use sliders to make your own, I wouldn't mind if they limited us to realistic colors, but itd be cool seeing people with strange colored skin too. Hats that don't suck. Ability to chose pants color instead of it changing when you pick Favorite or Transfer a Mii over.


Lone Wolf (Guest) on 02/23/2007 1:19 pm

When I get/play a Wii, I'll get back to you.

Oh, and do me a favor. Call yourself a Butterscotchaphile, so I know your true alliegance to Butterscotchery!


the boy (Guest) on 02/23/2007 2:36 pm

In picture #1 I look like I'm toothlessly gnawing on air, and in picture #2 I look like I'm grinding my teeth with a shit-eating grin on my face. I'm gonna sue your ass for defamation.


Blodigar (Guest) on 02/24/2007 4:24 am

How about some real proportions instead of that creepy super deformed look. Also just to add to the strange array of ideas why not vehicles mostly because every first person shooter is doing it, why not the Miis?


Ty22 (Guest) on 02/24/2007 9:53 am

Spikey hair or an afro


teknotheef (Guest) on 02/24/2007 11:04 am

Definitely need Armor, Weapons, and accessories. You could totally deck out your level 20 Mii with a vorpal halebard, full plate mail, and a cloak of invisibility. You'd definitely be able to win at boxing then.


CJ Cassisi (Guest) on 02/24/2007 1:00 pm

P.S i hate the fact that these new consoles are soooo important. it's like " Blah Blah Blah! Wii is the shit! Blah Blah! PS3 will get you laid!"
Have some respect for the tried and true consoles, and wait till
1. they go down in price and
2. all the fucking bugs get worked out.


Blodigar (Guest) on 02/24/2007 3:13 pm

I highly agree with CJ Cassisi's post script. PS3's on fiftieth mandatory download by now.


CS (Guest) on 02/24/2007 5:41 pm

I second disabilities.


Crisp (Guest) on 02/24/2007 10:57 pm

I had to put a tiny moustache below my Mii's mouth to make a soul patch.


Teros (Guest) on 02/25/2007 11:20 am

About your suckyness in boxing. You're probobly holding the remote and nunchuck wrong. Hold them up straight when going for the face and point them forward when going for the body.


Uncle_Sham (Guest) on 02/25/2007 12:59 pm

dont act like your better than him... everyone knows i am supreme one here.


richard (Guest) on 02/25/2007 2:06 pm

Err, well, I think they totally need chainsaws for hands. that would kick ass in the boxing, oh RoG if you read my little rant about Red Steel, forget everything I said. I just sucked at Wii, I've been borrowing one for about a week, and I'm killer at it. Oh! I found a little easter egg thingie when u make a Mii, if you take the nose that looks like a penis, make it go down as much as you can, it looks they have a penis on there chin! It awshum!


jesse (Guest) on 02/25/2007 9:28 pm

more facial hair styles


Guy (Guest) on 02/26/2007 5:01 pm

I think I speak for all furfags when I say we want ears and tails.


Noah (Guest) on 02/26/2007 6:17 pm

-RoG-, you look like a long haired emo kid. FAIL.

On the otherhand, Proto is wearing a Bad Religion shirt. WIN.


Chris (Guest) on 02/27/2007 10:42 pm

There is more than meets the eye with the mii thing if you tweek the hell out of the sliders. Lets see, we made chewbacca, an alien (complete with enteni), Hitler, satan, Jackie Chan, a hippy, a guy with spock ears, etc etc.


DuFresne (Guest) on 02/28/2007 4:40 pm

Pic of Proto's mii, plz thx


Garrett (Guest) on 02/28/2007 9:31 pm

I think Ninja/Pirate hats would be awesome, Transformers head pieces? A Megatron face would be a pretty awesome Mii. And some new clothes wouldn't hurt. Link, Mario, and Samus headgear would be pretty sweet too, Mabye even Megaman.

My brother made a Hobo on his Wii, A HOBO!


Garrett (Guest) on 02/28/2007 9:33 pm

sorry guys... little bit of an over post, I'll be more patient when I post it.


Garrett (Guest) on 02/28/2007 9:34 pm

Whoops... never mind


Manel (Guest) on 03/09/2007 2:47 pm

they should have various penis to choose from
