It's hard, I know. It's a little like breaking up with someone you liked (or for most of you, when you abandon an RPG character to start a new one). In the case of Wii, things will be better than they were before Wii. You'll see why at E3 and just have to trust me for now. Rufus has seen Wii in action and literally cannot wait for it to come out.

 

Some people have complained about the rash of argumentative Wii threads, both mature and immature. They want Rufus to do something about it, like lock them all or shut them down. The fact is, what is occurring here is a very natural reaction to change. In psychology, they have these 5 Stages of Acceptance: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. Are some gamers going through it right now? Let's see:

 

Stage 1: Denial

"They called it what? I don't press buttons? I just wave it around? What? That's a remote. How will it know what I want it to do? How will I play FPS? How will I play sports games? What?"

 

Stage 2: Anger

"I hate that name! I hate it! I don't want to play a freehand controller. How can I mash buttons when there are so few buttons to mash! If I wanted a workout, I'd go to the gym, and it's very evident that I don't!

 

Stage 3: Bargaining

"If you don't change the name back to Revolution, I might not buy it. Is it OK if I just still call it Revolution? How about the controller fits into a shell so that I could still play games with 80 buttons?"

 

Stage 4: Depression

"We're doomed! We're all doomed!"

 

Stage 5: Acceptance

"You know what, this system rocks! This is unbelievable. I can't believe I'm playing like this. Can you believe it took so long for someone to come up with this? It's going to be hard for me to play games any other way. Viva la Wii!"

 

Stage 5 will come on May 9 and thereafter when you play Wii. Until then, just note that some of the reactions you are reading are quite normal, if not scientifically accepted.

 

Get Well Soon (like May 9)

I don't see the big deal, it's different, so what? that doesn't really changes anything, stuff changes all the time, that's the way it is and will always be.

The freaking steps are just stupid, people are not machines and can think their own stupidities by themselves.
I don't need luck, I have skill.

Oh, of course, get some glasses or something, I said that the change doesn't matter to me, which, counting I like it now, I'll also like it then, so I already accepted it but don't make such a fuss about it because it aint impressive.
