Wiiued

Gaming isn’t cheap. You’ve got so many things to factor in these days. The console itself, online passes, a stable net connection, controllers, headsets, games and of course, a microwave. Wait what?

Yessiree, “Professional microwaver” Kenny Irwin has returned to butcher another expensive device, all in the name of art. ART I SAY! He’s already nuked a Nintendo 3DS and a PS Vita with enough radiation to create a hulk in the past, and today, he’s taking on the new Wii U console.

Just look at that. Let this sink in. That’s a R5000 console, up in flames and melted plastic. Which he is now selling as art on eBay. The current asking price? $3,490.03 for an authentically melted Wii U console.

I…I have to go lie down, my head really, really hurts all of a sudden.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
