Wii-kipedia is a Wikipedia-based video game released for the Wii console. It was created in collaboration with the efforts of great thinkers such as Bill Gates, George Romero, Stephen Hawkings andShigeru Miyamoto.
The Plot[edit | edit source]
The game is about creating new articles that has wiki sense and post them with other player to build an Mushroom Kingdom Wiki, called Wii-kipedia. When you try to build an article, the real history starts.
The Action-Adventure[edit | edit source]
The game is about creating new articles that don't make sense and post them quick before the evil moderators delete it. These moderators sometimes hunt you down and can take all of your lives. You have to create a minimun of 80 articles and then go to the Microsoft building and blow the sucker down. Next, you must hack the dictionary.reference.com website and upload porn images on the page. If you manage to do this before the Crazy-geek-with-a-shotgun blows your head off, you win 200 points.
There is also a bonus level in which you have to drive through this huge volcano and shoot down some guards and then there's this crazy guy with an M-16 and you have to convince him of letting you go through the bridge and the only way to do it *SPOILER ALERT* is if you follow the dialogue combination: 2, 1, 1, 4, 2 and then after that there's this crazy giant motherfucking spider and *SPOILER ALERT* you cannot kill it unless you stay on the lower corner and then tap the A button as fast as you can when it shoots the web.... and then you arrive at this massive cave and you have to climb some ... things with ... ropes... and then you reach a giant Volkswagen which shoots snakes out of its rear engine and you have to dodge them while you're trying to figure out the combination for a Safe and then the whole thing explodes and you have to go down this subterranean river and kill some bad guys before you run out of breath and then you have to jump over these turtle-shaped creatures and make sure the shell doesn't bounce against you and then you have to ride these motherfucking speed-bikes which are so fast that you can't see the wall before you smash your sorry ass against it and then there's this huge motherfucker who looks like Swarchzenneger and you have to kill him and toss him down the window and you cannot jump because there are spikes on the roof and then there's this alligator pond which you have to jump but making sure you don't fall down and then there's the boss which is really easy and then it's over.
The Controlers[edit | edit source]
You use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. The nunchuck is used to move the mouse, and the Wii Remote( is used to type on the keyboard. This can be really challenging, considering that the keyboard on the screen is considerably small. In fact, most of the game's difficulty relies on the fact that you need to aim those keys really fast before those moderators kill you.“What the fuck? These controls suck! I'm gonna go play Super Mario Galaxy.”
~ Oscar Wilde on Wii-kipedia's innovative controls
Multiplayer[edit | edit source]
There is a multiplayer option as well. To access the multiplayer mode, plug your telephone cord into your TV, call some of your buddies and ask them to help you build this stupid website on Wii. The biggest challenge is not only managing to make the call after such an unrealistic electronical operation; but once you achieve it, managing to convince your friends that you're not really out of your mind.
Your friends help the main player (you) as lumas, which can only type very slowly and drag around words, star-bits, and links.
Easter eggs[edit | edit source]
This game has a lot of hidden Wiki-related content, which is there for the sole purpose of promoting Wikipedia. It is the only reason why the creators of Wikipedia authorized the release of the game. For example:
- On Level 3, when you reach the Old lady at the Cabin, there is a poster in the background which reads "Vote Sanger or die on the stake, sucker";
- The Boss's Lair is "Village Pump";
- The little icons that spin around the main character's head every time he hits himself are the same icons that appear in the Wikipedia logo;
- The Moderators' faces are shaped according to Jimmy Wales, one of the creators of the first version of Wikipedia.
Wii-kipedia Console[edit | edit source]
It's been rumored for quite a while that there are plans to create a Wii-kipedia Video Game Console. This console, which is similar to the Nintendo Wii, allows you to edit video games as you please. You can change part of (or all) the game's plot or you can delete some of the bad guys who make you start all over again. The idea is still in discussion and could be completely removed.
- If you don't have friends, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
