Cabela's Gets The Wii Light Gun Just Right

As distasteful as you may find Cabela's Big Game Hunter—or indeed the people who play it—you've got to admit there's something shamefully satisfying about the game's plastic peripherals.

So it's nice to see that with the game making its way to the 360, PS3 and Wii next month, special attention has been made to the plastic gun that comes in the box. The 360 and PS3 version of the game, they just ship in a regular box and you make do, but the Wii version, it comes with a gun.

A large, Elmer Fudd-like shotgun. Really, it's amazing. Nintendo, this is what the Wii Zapper should have looked like.


    Are you a vegan or vegetarian Luke? What's so distasteful about playing a hunting game? You're coming across like one of those crazy animal rights terrorists who think it is bad to kill animals, but yet want to kill hunters.

      Confession: I am a die-hard carnivore, and I kind of scoff at these games for being 'red-neck' and silly. But secretly, I'd like to try one to see what it's really like.

      I think a lot of people, though, write them off as just being red-neck fodder, and not 'real' games. Is that fair? Dunno. But it is. :)

    What are actual console users suppose to use? Guncon3?
