Time to Get a Wii

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 9:26 AM

I've put off a Nintendo Wii purchase up to this point, but looks like that might change now that the system is about to release an updated version of Punch-Out!!, also known as the single greatest video game of all time*.

Granted, this new version won't have its former namesake—this guy—but it looks like all the old favorites (King Hippo, Piston Honda, Glass Joe) are back. And just when you thought it could not get any better, their commercial features Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire's Clay Davis) as Doc, the wise trainer of a disgraced Little Mac.

Sheeeeeeeeet, looks like I'm buying a Wii.

* according to someone whose video game experience peaked in 1989.
