I find it kind of funny; I find it kind of sad

The Daily Mail are at it again, and this time they’re angry about Sega releasing Mad World on the “family friendly Wii”. Mad World, if you weren’t aware, looks like an unofficial tribute to the monochrome Sin City and lets you kill foes by sticking traffic signs through their head. It looks quite good.

John Beyer, director of mediawatch-uk, says:

“It seems a shame that the game’s manufacturer have decided to exclusively release this game on the Wii. I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii.”

Resident Evil 4, Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Scarface and The Godfather didn’t do Nintendo’s image any harm, John. Plus the game is likely to receive an 18 certificate anyway. You can read the full story here, which includes Nintendo’s say on the matter.

Verdict: The Daily Mail had a slow news day.
