Every boy who has lived in a climate that allowed it has tried to write his name in the snow. You know what I mean. It wasn't really something one could accomplish until maybe the age of seven or eight at minimum. You had to have learned cursive writing and had to have a bladder that was big enough for your name. Guys named "Al" have it a lot better than those named "Sebastian" or "Bartholomew."
Another game that involved the same, umm, equipment was the every-popular "Swords." This was more or less a spontaneous activity when two or more guys decided to relieve themselves at exactly the same time at the same exact spot. Sometimes it was a matter of necessity, like when there was only one available toilet. Other times it was more of a coincidental meeting behind the same bush at some picnic or kegger. Regardless, playing swords or the name game was and is a sophomoric, and some would say puerile, pastime. Probably guys named Sebastian or Bartholomew.
Leave it to the word of digital entertainment to change this by bringing the pissing match, as it were, into the living room. Yes, indeed, that Nintendo Wii yu bought for the kids of, just as likely, for yourself can now allow you the chance to play a sort of Whack A Mole game with digital urine. Say hello to Super Pii Pii Brothers!
The play mechanics are simple. Prepare yourself by strapping on the included belt harness and jacking in your Wiimote. A series of toilets are presented on screen and the challenge is to tilt your body to control a never-ending stream of pee. Get as much pee in the toilets as you can while spilling as little on the floor as possible. Sounds easy eh? Well the toilets open and close whack-a-mole style and occasionally the stray cat or other cute critter pops up. Spray a cat for extra points. Get too much pee on the ground and your game is over. With realistic fluid dynamics for the pee and over 100 different bathrooms from bars and palaces to automatic Japanese style toilets you'll be entertained for hours. And wait until your friends see the multi-player mode with dueling pee streams...
Better living through digital technology.
h/t tip to my pal Mike Bass for this find. He just couldn't stop talking about this. Make you kind of wonder.
Oh, yeah. I suppose I should point out that this was originally written about on Think Geek on April 1.
