This Wii Gun Might Not Be A Great Idea

We've seen our fair share of Wii peripherals that are bad ideas. Saw one this week! Now let's see another one.

Look at it! You could rob a gas station with that thing, and nobody would bat an eye.

"Inspired" by the famous Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun, it's got a built-in speaker and even acts as a standalone Wii Remote, meaning you don't need to clip an existing controller in. Adding to the authenticity is the fact the batteries are housed in the magazine clip, which you have to remove to change.

Not sure if the potential sales to gun nut Wii owners is worth the potential negative publicity, but hey, that's peripheral company Komodo's call to make, not mine.

    I'm sure the people in the 'robbing a gas station' crowd would be more likely to buy a $2 plastic gun from the dollar store (many of which i've seen look much more realistic than this one) than dish out the money for whatever this costs.

    This actually looks pretty cool. I don't have the disposable income to justify it, but would definitely be a nice purchase

    I remember importing a "replica" Beretta 92FS PS2 lightgun, looked okay but was scaled down in size slightly. Didn't know if it would get through customs, but it did.

    It started with the damn insect bite. I dunno what kind of insect bit me, all I knew was that my arm was itchy as hell. Scratched it so much it bled and it still itched. It cleared up. But then the itch came back. I could feel it there, a niggling tickling sensation that grew and grew. I went to the doctors. He said it was fine. The itch was all in my head. Damn quack. More and more often I relented to scratch it. At first it brought relief but soon that stopped. So itchy. Then I could feel the movement. Something was under the skin, creeping and crawling. That's what was causing the itch. I grabbed a razor blade, one of those triple protection ones that cost way too much. I try to pry it apart to get to the blade but just end up repeatedly slicing my fingers. I toss the blood covered head in to the trash and pull apart my kitchen drawers till I find what I'm looking for. A box cutter knife. I use a dinner knife to unscrew the holding pin, the spare blades scatter on the floor. I only need one. I sink the blade deep in to my arm. Nothing. I can still feel them. They're panicking. So am I. I start to hack at my arm, gouging out huge chunks but it's too late. I can feel them moving up my arm. I drag the blade up, slicing through the flesh as I go. I jump ahead to beat them, slashing at my throat and chest. I push my fingers in to my parted flesh and try to get them out but there is so much blood and it's getting so dark that I can barely see. I collapse on to the floor. The drenaline is wearing off and I'm in so much pain. But the itch... The itch is gone. I laugh triumphantly as I slip in to a dark, dreamless, itchless sleep.

      ^^^^^^^

      wtf?

        I suspect Crono was trying to enter the Alan Wake competition...
