buying another Wii?

I smell class envy. You have no right to berate someone as spoiled for wanting a game system. Especially a wii. They are cheap, now...80 bucks is way steep, IMHO for what I've seen them go for. But I am seeing less and less of them on the used market; not to mention they have stopped production in both Japan and the EU.

It's nice to have a backup, considering the strain the disc reader has with FPS...I know our family went through 2.

Not to mention...it's the holiday season. less than 60 days till Christmas, perhaps he would ask for it for a present. Just seems slightly "bitter" to be sour on someone over a parent request when you want that money to spend "better."

I get so tired of class envy....people automatically jump to "greedy corporations" conclusions and "spoiled rich kids" whining when all they base it off of is their current greed and or poverty...and a resentment over those that seem to have it easier. Maybe they do, but that's just life, man.

Waste of money.


This. You want to get your parents to spend $150-200 on you so you can play a crappy FPS from 2 years ago that has hardly any playerbase?

¬¬
Me concentro en mis estudios bro. Eso es todo. Aun tengo un par de años (o más...) antes de tener que salir y buscar trabajo, así que aprovecho y me preparo. Considera que con estudios no me refiero únicamente a lo escolar. Y dije k no estoy trabajando, no que no lo he hecho. Si lo he hecho, en vacaciones cuando no tengo nada de mayor importancia que hacer y solo lo hago por hacer algo, no por necesidad.... Por otro lado... Quieres que volvamos a hablar ingles? "que eres nino de 5 anos xD" aun no le encuentro sentido a eso aun k presiento que es ligeramente ofensivo ¬¬

El humor en E.U.A es mas offensivo, aprende a tomar un golpe nena xD.
saber el valor de dinero y tener que trabajar por el?....
si yo tambien trabajo duro en la escuela pero es commun que aqui todos ya tienen un trabajo cuando entran a highschool.
el trabajo solo es temporal.

Not following that weird last bit...at all, sounds bizarre to me though so I really don't care for you to explain it.

But those final two sentences of yours..bout people not caring and being a drone if you do....sounds like you need more friends, or at least better ones. I still get requests to pick up a copy and play.

Multiplayer...especially on a niche game like this usually does have close cliqs, clubs and friendships, and those people do care.
