Why Do Wii Fans Enjoy The Wii So Much?

What really makes the Wii so popular? Is it the robust library of games? Can’t be. Is it the faulty control mechanism? Anything is possible. What about the fact that Nintendo has the cheapest system on the market but you’ve got to buy twice as many controllers at marked up prices just so you can play with friends? Nah, that’s ...

It’s Not VH1, But It’ll Do

If you’ve ever been to a ShowBiz Pizza Place, the first thing you’d notice is how rockin’ animatronic robots can be.
