You see, the reach of Kotaku is so far that their articles came to me by infecting Nintendo blogs, general comment sections and forums of other game sites. So, when this story was brought to my attention I really couldn't believe what I was seeing. Stephen Totilo works for Kotaku and has, over the years, been largely in charge of their Nintendo coverage. So, making a 5-minute video about mocking a free peripheral may just be the byproduct of a thorough, thorough journalist leaving no stone unturned, right?
No, Totilo and Kotaku pick and choose when to dig deep in to
Kotaku never covered third party block-buster PS3-gone-Wii game Monster Hunter Tri. Well, aside from this. Kotaku never covered No More Heroes until it was ported to the PS3 ... in Japan.
Kotaku, and more specifically Stephen Totilo, stopped tracking monthly Wii gameplay numbers a mere three months after a third party title began to dominate the charts - which would of course shatter the Nintendo-haters' beloved notion that first party titles are the only reason to own a Nintendo platform.
No, Kotaku and Stephen Totilo ignore all that. But they do make time for a second story making fun of that free stand.
I've given you several unwarranted hits today, Kotaku, but successfully avoided you for years. Now, please, go out of business, ok? ...Please?
