Not me, I can tell you that. I loved the Nintendo Wii, but who really needs this? I also could care less that it was made for Queen Elizabeth II, but I digress.
The 24-karat gold-plated Wii was created by the original THQ and intended for the Royal Family to promote Big Family Games. However, it was returned to THQ as there is apparently a strict gift policy at Buckingham Palace.
Currently, the bidding is at $2,200 and the auction ends on May 21, 2022. I suppose you could always melt the thing down as gold is crazy valuable right now.
Too bad the Queen decided not to keep it. She could have auctioned it off herself to pay for her piece-of-shit pedophile son’s sexual assault settlement.
Air travel these days is rough. I remember when people used to dress up for air travel. Nowadays, flying on an airplane is like taking a greyhound bus with wings, especially if you fly on Spirit.
I get it, after 9/11 security is a priority, but we got to hire people for the TSA that can identify am original Playstation and not confuse it for a bomb. This was the case on Easter Sunday when Boston Logan International Airport was evacuated a suspicious item was discovered. The item was an old Playstation.
“Troopers responded and, after investigation and research, determined that the item was a PlayStation video game console with a degraded condition caused by age or damage.”
I questioned the value of this cost since the libraries are currently limited, but it also appears that some of the better games are suffering from quality issues. This is no bueno.
The Nintendo Switch version looks like ass. Games like Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, and Mario Kart 64 are suffering from stuttering, input lag, and framerate issues. Mario Kart 64, which allows you to play online also appears to be suffering from latency issues.
Gamers have also been complaining about the inability to remap Switch controls to mimic those on the N64. The original N64 controller was very unique, so remapping to the Switch is quite the challenge, but it appears that users do not have the ability to reconfigure to their own liking in settings.
I’m sure Nintendo will work on fixing these issues over time, but I can totally understand the disappointment for those who jumped on this early. A lot of this should have been taken care of prior to launch.
