The Wii gun looks just like a Disk Shot pistol but a removable plunger, holds less ammo, and a rail for lights and whatnot.

I talked about a Wii Nerf game about two years ago I believe. Anyway, sucks that EA is handling it, but I'm sure it will still be interesting and I will probably end up buying it like the sucker I am.

Maybe it's just me, but I'd get one to replace a Wii Zapper.

I don't even own a Wii (yet) and I'll probably still pick one up.

Innocent mistake or Freudian slip? The world may never know...

Just for those of you who don't know, a Freudian slip is when you say one thing, but mean your mother.

5. Protip: sarcasm is good for making someone else look like more of an idiot than they already do. However, if you are an idiot to start with, using sarcasm just makes you look like a COLOSSAL idiot.

Check it out, they're talking about us (well maybe not ALL of us):



http://crave.cnet.co...-9874043-1.html



Hasbro showed off its entire upcoming Nerf line at Toy Fair, including more about the fabled Nerf Wii blaster revealed last week. No longer just a photo and some passing speculation, the Nerf-branded Wii peripheral now has a name and even more details.

The Nerf Wii blaster is officially called the Switch Shot EX-3, and is part of the Nerf N-Strike line of blasters. The Switch Shot EX-3 functions both as a Wii remote Zapper-like gun peripheral and a Nerf dart blaster, thanks to a removable dart module that clicks into the remote slot. The lower half of the barrel stores two additional Nerf darts, and holds a Nerf N-Strike accessory rail. While it doesn't come with any accessories, the Switch Shot's N-strike rail makes it compatible with the Nerf Recon blaster's red dot sight or the separately sold N-Strike tactical light. The Nerf Switch Shot EX-3 is scheduled to ship in Fall 2008, and will retail for about $13 to $15. The blaster will also be shipped with the upcoming Nerf N-Strike game for the Wii, although Hasbro hasn't announced final pricing or packaging yet. EA and Hasbro are also developing a Nerf N-strike game for the Nintendo DS, though it's not yet known if it will ship with the Switch Shot blaster.

Hasbro also showed off the Nerf Vulcan EBF-25. While it doesn't double as a Wii accessory, the Vulcan stood out as one of the most extreme examples of Nerf warfare yet. The Vulcan is a tripod-mounted, motorized Nerf machine gun that uses an ammo belt and storage box to fire up to 25 Nerf darts without reloading. It runs off of 6 'D' batteries, and it also features an N-strike clip for using additional tactical lights, scopes, or sights. The Vulcan already seems like a fearsome Nerf gun, but its motorized system and pivoting tripod practically beg for some enterprising toy modder to drill, cut, and solder on some servo motors and make their very own Nerf sentry turret. The Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 ships in Fall 2008, with a retail price of $40.

I don't think they were really referring to the NIC, just random hypothetical garage tinkerers.

Well the Switch Shot looks as if it would be on the cover of a book called "Help! I'm a Nitefinder trapped in a Recon's body!"

I doubt it. The fact that the SSPB is air-powered gives it a lot of advantages, not to mention the smaller size.

The size difference ( which looks small) should confiscate in its performance. I mean compare the average range of a NF to a pocket shooter, modded of course.

It really depends on how easily it can be fired and/or rigged to fire. Just imagine having one of these on each forearm.

Looks more like a Nitefinder trapped in a Disk Shot's body to me, which pretty much is a Disk Shot.

When speaking about a swallow, always make sure you know whether it is an African or European swallow. It is very important.

That's what spider man dart tag guns are for, plus they have three shots each.

On topic, this looks like a cool gun, I'd definitely like to buy it. Although I might want to see a review before buying the nerf N-strike game.

I would like to post some concerns i have for the Wii/Nerf game, itself. If any one has any answers to my questions with links from a reputable source, well, it goes without saying, please reply.

1) Is the game Nunchuck playable?
Because, if not, the game will basically be "duckhunt". and that would be the suck, and not worth getting.
2) will there be online gameplay?
Because I can't help but see online wars being set up. now we can have more wars between coasts without having to fly out. but if thats the case, we don't want people only doing online games, because frankly thats kind of lame. part of the fun is going out and playing with people in the real world. but it's also a nice way of playing with folks that you can't normally play with. ... but we might as well make a Nerf mod for CS, and use that, huh?

any ways, thats all i care about. can i move in the game, not just shooting lame digital discs? AND can I play with other people via Wifi-Connect?
