Netflix, Travis Touchdown, and B.A Baracus!!!

Let’s get right down to business. As you should all be aware of already, Netflix has officially announced that they are indeed bringing video streaming to the Wii. This is fairly big news, even if I’m a day late reporting it, and it’s been something that almost everyone has speculated on the past 6 months or so. It only makes sense seeing as how the Wii is considered a “family console”, and I’m guessing about 95% of them are located in the family living room. This makes the market huge for Netflix, and is another selling feature to the little console that could. The one flaw is that users will need to insert a streaming disk into the Wii (just like the PS3), and I can see this being a problem for families with kids. Kids lose things, break stuff, and pretty much run paths of ruinous destruction anywhere they go. If all we’re gonna get is the paper sleeve to store the disk in when it’s not in use, Netflix better plan on allowing you to get a free replacement as needed. I’ve contacted Netflix asking about that and a few other things, stay tuned to see if they give me the answers. In the meantime, check the trailer for the upcoming movie, “The A-Team”, which is just below here. One day it could be in Netflix’s Watch Instantly lineup, so it makes sense to put it here. That and the fact that it’s so BA. Oh, don’t forget to go ahead and order your streaming disk so you can join in the streaming fun when Netflix hits the Wii this spring.

One of these days The Spin is going to hit the big time. I don’t know when it’ll happen, and I don’t know how it will happen. I do know that our day will come. On that day I may be privy to preview games before their official release. Games like No More Heroes 2 for instance, a game for which I’d let Suda 51 punch me in the face for an early look at. Sadly, that day is not today. IGN, on the other hand, has those days all the time. I imagine their offices are gaming meccas in which you can find games before they are released, consoles before they are announced, and everything else one can dream of. Sure, it’s probably not that glamorous, but I don’t care. I want to bask in my tiny corner of the interwebs, shaking my fist at the corporate “man” that is IGN as they play hours upon hours of No More Heroes 2. It should be me, and one day it will. In the meantime, I just have to watch the three videos they posted up and try my best not to cry. You can join me if you’d like, the videos are right down there. Enjoy, and stay thirsty my friends.
