Today on Hard News what you'll see on the VGAs, play Modern Warfare 3 early and you'll get banned early, and what is Nintendo patenting this time?

Nintendo's new patent - http://www.screwattack.com/news/nintendos-new-patent-will-make-you-look-tool
LOL, good point. I never really thought about the cost of those controllers for the Wii U. Won't it be like the price of a 3DS given the technology in them? Aside from the benefit of finally allowing DS & 3DS games to be played on a TV since the controllers seem to have touchscreen functionality (which Nintendo may not even include), those things will be damn expensive. And they really don't need controllers like this to have allowed playing DS/3DS games on a TV---instead they could have equipped 3DS units with a port that connects to the Wii or Wii U & displays the contents of both screens on a TV so you could use it as a controller like the PSP when using the AV out cable. Or at worst a special adapter so someone would only need to purchase 1 of them rather than making the price of controllers so expensive.
Anyway, the games I'm looking forward to getting most or playing (Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Donkey Kong Country Returns, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Sonic Colors, Twilight Princess, Sin & Punishment Star Successor, Epic Mickey, etc) could all easily be supported by the classic controller if the developers really wanted to. I'm not sure if any of these can or can't since I never played them, but it would be a nice surprise if at least one of these games I mentioned works with the classic controller.
This is exactly why I think if a company (especially Sega if they were managed better currently) that released a no BS gimmicks handheld now, other than maybe a pen-sized gun accessory for portable FPS games, would have a great chance to take the majority of market share for the current/upcoming 3DS-Vita generation.
I would love it if every game Nintendo or 3rd parties made for the Wii would be configured to also work with the classic controller besides the other ones they have. I don't know if it's ever possible to go back & do that now, with firmware or something, but that would be great.
nintendo is starting piss me off
Glad to see I'm not alone.
I agree with you Double
And the first set of VGA categories just got released and I'm already calling BS on them. Two of the dominations for GOTY aren't even out yet! This is the kind of crap I've always complained about. The entire show doesn't do gamers any justice at all.
The Wii Smoke, get's you high, and also makes your controller look retarded!!
it has the benefit of the doubt, i doubt that it will be good :)
That Wii remote accessory....just....what?
That thing looks more like an air horn than anything.
So is it wrong that I've already beaten the MW3 campaign and am now halfway through again on veteran? If so, I don't wanna be right.
Thank you for that idea!
Nintendo I love you but please make normal controllers again. Even something like the N64 is better whan what you're coming up with.
That new Wii Peripheral looks like a fucking bong lol
Again, reminds me of another NES accessory the UFORCE, but i would give this one the benefit of the doubt.
And thats my point, Gaming is serious and they treat it with BS like that. The VGA's are a joke and every person who calls themselves a gamer should be INSULTED by them.
who cares much like a car crash ( or in this case many many car crashes) the show is fun to watch because it has just gotten more overblown and stupid every damn year, Plus I love all the red carpet BS where they ask all these famous morons going to the Video game Awards what games they like and watch them say "I don't really play" or I like retro games like PAC man or Mario or some crap like that my dad sums it up well with a comment about the MTV movie awards "what a huge circle jerk"
Im definitely excited for the new Alan Wake game. The first one was just awesome.
Pretty sure the g1 community as I've noticed is comprised of a good wealth of vast minded individuals when it comes to genre's and gaming but MARKFLIP's simple resolution #1 to all the sap happy COD fanboys. PLAY SOMETHING ELSE FOR A CHANGE AND QUITCHYO WHININ'! (and then go back to your COD when the smoke clears, k?)
i really want to know more about the new metal gear game its taking so long beeing made =\
