Nintendo launches Wii Family Argument
CONSOLE giant Nintendo’s new game will encourage families to interact in a massive Christmas fight.
Wii Family Argument uses state-of-the-art arguing technology to detect sensitive, inflammatory issues that have emerged over the festive period and then raise them with maximum antagonistic intent via its onscreen avatar, ‘Uncle Roy’.
A Nintendo spokesman said: “Uncle Roy is a highly sophisticated artificial intelligence designed to be massively bitter, indiscreet and surprisingly cunning for a drunkard who sleeps in his clothes.”
Uncle Roy lives alone in a bedsit in Charing Cross, spends most of his disposable income on prostitutes and eats muesli for his tea.
Game play is based on his resentment towards you since grandad died and left you his war medals, which Roy knew were valuable and firmly believed should have been his.
Invited for Christmas because of pity and obligation, he then stirs things as much as possible until someone punches him or he passes out.
The spokesman added: “Roy will exploit existing sources of tension – such as whether the kids should be allowed to stay up and watch Fatal Attraction – and create new ones by being a bastard.”
Revolutionary dual chip technology means that Wii Family Argument only takes about seven minutes to calculate a household’s darkest secrets and cannot be turned off.
The spokesman said: “You have to wait until the argument burns out, then sit in silence for at least an hour until someone grudgingly agrees to make the tea.
“If you try to turn it off prematurely Uncle Roy will repeatedly say, ‘No, you fucking leave it’ until you’re forced to either give up or smash the screen.”
