That’s why all these Wii screens have dorky kids superimposed in the corner.
 
Thanks for the friendly reminder about the gimmicky controller, Mario, but how about just letting the shots speak for themselves without spelling it out for us? Are you that worried about the obviously limited graphics? And am I thinking out loud again?
