Wii are the Champions [update]

April 27, 2006

No time for losers.

The feedback has been strong. Mostly negative, mainly retarded. So retarded that people have actually started petitions. Some fools have started one (among the many) called “Are You Serious, Nintendo?” that pleads Nin to change the name. If you scroll down, you can find signatures from me (comment #211) and my bud Silent K (comment #206) ridiculing them for their stupidity. Soon after making those comments, he urged me to put them in their place. Thus, out of the rubble and debris of a massive fanboy backlash, came…

Petition to Boycott the Nintendo Wii Petition, the Nintendo Wii Petition Petition. This is my answer to all the dumbasses who think Nintendo will listen to them. Also, let it be known that there are some folks who dig the name. Weird as it is, it stands for alot of things, probably more than Nintendo has revealed.

Sign it if you want, but it’s a goof so signatures aren’t really important. Although, people have already started to support it, so we might as well see how far this thing goes.

Update– Ok, this is war. My petition has slowed to a crawl. Their petition is still going steady. Here’s what i need you guys to do: Using every email address you have, spam theirs with the URL to mine. I just did it myself (comment 1520) but got cut off. I’m out of emails! Let’s do this.

Signature count for my petition: 70

Signature count for Wii petition: 1872

    Man, the feedback on Infendo is unbelievable!

    There’s more Nintendo bashing (and for a reason I can’t explain, gay bashing!) than I have ever seen on ANY site, let alone a Nintendo fan site!

    Like I said, those fan boys can be dangerous…

    I love the logo, by the way… The name itself? To me, it’s just intriguing… I think there’s more to it than the site leads you to believe.

    I agree with Invisible Man. I got tired of reading the comments because they didn’t add anything new. I could understand if they were iffy but they are really pissed. (No pun intended.)

    I do like the advert with the ii’s moving. I was very intrigued and excited to see what they have planned next.

    Yeah, that’s the best word that describes my feelings towards the Wii name: intrigued, which I believe is what Nintendo intended with the name.

    And the best word to describe the over-the-top negative reaction from fanboys? Arrogance.

    Whaaat?? Haha. Who’s Brian?

    I dunno, man. Those guys were pretty hardcore against me coming back, with threats of cops and beatings.

    What would you tell them?

    I would just plead with them. If that doesn’t work, you could always do something about that hair of yours. If you kept it tied up or hid it somehow, i’m sure they wouldn’t recogize you. Anywayz, give me a call on my cell today.

    ~Ruben

    P.S.
    Brian is just the guy who I spoke to when I RSVP’d. He seemed kewl. He even called me back to let me know that the RSVP only guarantees you entry into the special event from 6-8. Everything else is first come, first serve.

    I never had my hair out at the NWS. Only time it was was for Miyamoto, and the employee fags who booted me weren’t there on Shiggy day. They’ve only seen me with a hat on, therefore displaying my face. They’d remember.

    I don’t think pleading would do any good. What we could do is give em a story if it really came down to it. They lied about having footage of me taking the Mario patch, so as far as they know i didn’t do jack. But really, i could care less about this “event”.

    I’ll call you tonight.

    In that case, unleash the hair! As for the event, it doesn’t matter if it’s lame or not. The point is that we’ll all be meeting up. It’ll be fun. And I’ll smoke you in tetris DS.

    P.S.
    Don’t think just because we’re not playing AC:WW anymore I wont be stylin’. lol

    We’re gonna try to do it all.

    ~Ruben

    P.S
    Did you ever call me?
