Nintendo "Matures" at the Movies
Theaters featuring "Pre-Show Entertainment" such as AMC Theaters and Pacific Theaters have been showing an extremely intense Nintendo GameCube advertisement.

The advertisement features graphic imagery such as a bloody heart pumping and a closeup of a brainstem quivering. The cinematography featured in this advertisement is definitely something not seen by anything Nintendo related and adds a more "mature" flavor to the company.

Games featured in the advertisement include James Bond 007: NightFire, Medal of Honor: Frontline, Timesplitters 2, and of course Metroid Prime. Advertisements have been run before such big hit blockbusters as Star Trek: Nemesis and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. (als)

I'm glad Nintendo is finally adapting a more "adult" image with their video game advertisements. I hope Nintendo doesn't take things too far and create a new Grand Theft Auto franchise... though seeing how popular that series is, it might not be so bad. It will surely help to boost sales of their systems.
People who like video games should also like Nintendo. People who don't like Nintendo obviously don't like video games.

That commercial's been on TV for weeks. It's not bloody and all it is is that all the stuff inside the guy's body has turned to cubes. Also among the footage that is shown for a split second is Super Mario Sunshine and Starfox Adventures. You can see Fox whacking a SharpClaw with his staff.
The guy is like in a psycho ward or something and he even drips a cube of sweat. It's weird. I guess they figured they had to act more like the other, stupider companies. Oh well. I gotta go see Nemesis and The Two Towers post-haste anyway.

"Thus has it ever been! Thus shall it ever be!"
That was a joke.
