I think Nintendo said it best in their own press release:
They got everything right except for the "gems" part. I think a more appropriate description would be "rat droppings."Originally Posted by Nintendo
Here's the deal: I don't mind obscure. I LIKE obscure. But when it gets to the point where you've never even HEARD OF THE GAMES, that's where I draw the line.
I'm not going to spend $10.00 on Wii Points to buy a game I've never heard of. It's like going to the video store, walking through their VHS section and picking some sci-fi movie from the 1980s at random. Yeah, it could be Blade Runner, but you're most likely going to end up with Mac and Me.
