Nintendo is the new messiah, cloaked in white molded plastic.
It wants the minds of our children and works to placate our parental worries.
Since video games rot the mind and the body equally, let’s at least get the kids jumping up and down during the brain rotting phase!

Interest in school work? You have got to be kidding me.
National Public Radio in the US agrees with me completely, although there is some lively and amusing debate around their opinion.
I predict that the next level will be paid-for advertising within Nintendo games, and product placement, just to make the mind control complete. I’m quite sure they’ve already thought about it: they are clever.
I am going now to play tennis in Second Life and when I come back I want that game off!
