The posings of a poet.

Hamlet has a Facebook

To Wii, or not to Wii, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to buffer
Then sling your arrows in Soldier of Fortune,
And by sniping end them. To disconnect—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The head-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That controllers are heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To disconnect, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to stream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of disconnection what streams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mobile coil,
Must give us [pause]—there’s the reconnect
That makes connectivity of so long life.
For who would bear the reloading and pedals of Time Crisis,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud Pac-man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the Marshall Law’s delay,
The insolence of Office Assistant, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’modem takes,
When he himself might his quicktime make
With a speaker broken? Who would red rings bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary online-life,
But that the dread of something after death,
Spock’s undiscovere’d country, from whose check point
No time-traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those glitches we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus connectivity does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of 1080p resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of naught,
And enterprises of great advertising and MMORPG
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of arcade action.
