Wii Can't We All Get Along?
It's not terribly interesting that the Addison outpost of a food-n-boozery is hosting a "Wii night" every Tuesday night. Nor is Blackfinn's wacky slogan terribly wacky (or original): "Real Men Wii Standing Up," oof. What is interesting -- kind of, anyway -- is how gamers find Blackfinn's Wii Night so, ah, interesting. "It's great to see our previously basement-nerd medium getting more and more widespread public appreciation," writes one commenter, in between a bunch of angry posts.
