    I really need to know whether this is anything like the real game. My sister wants to get it, but I don’t think she wants to commit suicide.

  2. Results 1 – 10 of about 390,000 for wii fit suicide. (0.20 seconds)

    … I guess you’ve got your answer, Kel’Thuzad.

    Thats it bring Oprah into it! DOUBLE WAMMY! A Body Mass Index of OVER 9000!!!!

  4. Sesoron says:

    Wow. The panel with “Am I right?” followed by two “Yes” options really got me. Bravo.

  5. Sharon says:

    I saw him Sunday and he lost some weight, folks. Such a good boy.

    Kel’Thuzad, it’s nothing like that, LOL. The only thing is, if she has any possibly serious body issues (dysmorphia, anorexia, etc.) it could exacerbate things, because it’s a little crack-addled as to what “fat” is, since (duh) it’s a simple machine and calculates things simplistically. Other than that, it’s a lot of fun, and I’ve been enjoying using it.

    i would consider getting a wii fit, but apparently i am too large to actually exercise on it.

    i ought to grind their bones to make my bread…

  8. Yar Kramer says:

    The timer-thing in the last panel made me think of the neurotoxin-timers from Portal. Nice job breaking it, hero making me automatically associate Wii Fit with GLaDOS, Shamus. ;)

  9. Lanthanide says:

    Personally I have always found having the only options for a yes/no answer question to be “Yes” and “Maybe” extremely hillarious.

  10. Miral says:

    How about “Yes/Yes, but…” (though I guess the button’s too small for that last one). :)

  11. Nabeshin says:

    Looks like they changed where it is (bad link?)Shamus-I keep getting a 404, but when I visit the site and hit latest it comes up.

  12. Drakey says:

    I liked the ‘Favorites’ Button. My favorite way to crucify myself? Tori amos? No….. Ice cream? YES!!!!

  13. Arc says:

    Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard complaints about WiiFit. Not a good buy, especially since most people stop using it after a month or so.

  14. Daimbert says:

    Personal opinion? “Yes/Yes” fit the personality of the Wii Fit better. Do ya really think after all of its rant it was going to give you a chance to weasel out of anything [grin]?

  15. Zaghadka says:

    The answer to your question: No. It’s not just you.

    “Brain Age” isn’t much nicer. It’s all very Japanese. Shaming, but passively so.

    However, I sometimes wonder if the Japanese versions of these games don’t tell players that their “Emperor is a God” and they should “bomb the harbor, once their BMI hits 25.” Can anyone translate the Japanese? ;)

    (Hey! My “Wavatar” changed!)
