STRIP: Hindsight is 20/200
So, Nintendo is about to spring its latest handheld game on the world and along with it are the ample WARNINGS about playing the damn thing. Seriously? We're going to put out a game that children really shouldn't even play because it might damage their eyes and will potentially make adults ill. Don't know about anyone else, but I gotta say it makes me a little leery of ever wanting to be near one.
I may be the wrong person to comment on this, though. I can't even watch 3D movies. They give me a headache and my eyes spend more time trying to separate out the colors than they do paying attention to the film.
Kudos, however, to Nintendo for having the foresight to build in a lock out mechanism for their new creation. Now they just need to build a timer lockout into them so parents can regulate the amount of TIME their spawnlings devote to their video crack. If Blizzard can do it, surely Nintendo can find a way.
That all being said, I have been sick these last few days and am going to recommence my convalescence on my best friend, the couch, whilst being serenaded to sleep by HM and company playing 007: Bloodstone.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and we will see you Wednesday if not sooner!
