Well, this kinda sucks. There’s basically zero news whatsoever worth posting. How can this be happening to me? I know E3 is coming up and the industry is going to keep their cards close until then, but damn, this is just crazy. I’ve been staring at my computer screen for like the past hour, while my brain rots in this void-like vacuum of non-news. That means today you’ll be getting news that is old news, and not really news in the first place. Wrap your head around that…

So, you guys know how I’ve been all like a little girl over the black Wii lately? Well, it turns out I may actually get one. I mean, if Mrs. Mike buys into the hype, which actually means I probably won’t be getting one so shut up. You see, Gamestop is having this ridiculous deal where if you trade in a Wii and two Wiimotes/Nunchucks, they’ll sell you a new Wii for $49.99 Yeah, I could get it for like $50; even less considering I’ve got a couple of crap games I could get like $30 for. However, Mrs. Mike isn’t too keen on us losing a nunchuck, even if we do gain a WMP…Still, I think the deal is going until June 6. Even if she never gets about it, you guys should go for it as I say it’s definitely worth it.

Believe it or not, there aren’t any badass videos or trailers for that Wii deal we were just talking about. I know, it’s cuh-ray-zay!! That’s okay though, because there is a retardedly BA commercial I’ve been dying to share with you guys. We all know the World Cup starts in a few weeks. Tonight our boys, the Stars and Bars, take on the Czech Republic in one of their final friendlies before heading to South Africa. I’m effing hyped. If you’re not, then Nike’s first commercial to kickoff their campaign should snap you out of your coma. Enjoy, and stay thirsty my friends.

I need someone to mow my lawn. I know, I went on and on last year about how excited I was to have my own yard and my own grass to mow, but you should see this junk. It’s stupidly out of control in my back yard. Honestly, I’m pretty sure that my lawnmower would look at me and ask me if I was serious if I tried to crank it in the jungle that used to be my back yard. I’m not sure how this even happened. One day it’s cold and rainy the next day I live in the Amazon. It’s kinda ridiculous… If you wanted, you could say it’s as ridiculous as the FIFA World Cup is going to be this summer. I.Am.Excited!!! USA v. England for our first match is going to be the most epic football match in our country’s recent history. Yup, it’s that major. To celebrate the upcoming tourney, EA is releasing 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the team at EA have made some pretty cool changes to the popular footy franchise. I’m posting the latest trailer below which showcase the Global Elimination multiplayer tournament that is sure to be one of the most popular modes in the game. The game looks pretty good, of course you could slap FIFA World Cup on an empty packet of M&M’s and I’d probably get hyped over it. Enjoy, and stay thirsty my friends.

See, I announce some site news and I immediately start sticking to it. I love it when a plan comes together. One of the most anticipated Wii titles this year is Metroid: Other M. Fanboys and girls the world over are drooling over the promise of hearing Samus Aran speak for the very first time. I’ve never been a fanatic of the series because they are usually so damned hard, but I am hyped over the fact that Team Ninja is taking control over gaming’s most famous bounty hunter. Nintendo has been fairly shy about showing the game in motion so far, but it looks like in the weeks leading up to it’s launch in May they look to change that.

The first trailer we saw for Other M, while very beautiful, was all CG and pre-rendered animations. That’s all well and good, but everyone knows the real meat and potatoes are the gameplay trailers. Honestly, I thought we’d have to wait another couple of weeks before we saw this beauty in motion. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong before. Once you watch the trailer below, you’ll know why. Enjoy, and stay thirsty my friends.
