My Fireplace for the Wii: Burning Down the House


The ESRB’s website has frequently been a source of video game leaks and spoilers, but I don’t know what to make of this. Apparently there’s an upcoming game for the Nintendo Wii in which players tend to a fireplace. I’ll give you time to pick up your jaw from the floor.


Got it? Okay. Prepare to have your jaw re-dropped: According to the ESRB, My Fireplace “is a simulation game in which players can tend to a virtual fireplace. Players can add logs to the fire, add decorations to the mantle, and pump air into the fireplace to keep the flames burning.”

How…why…who…what the hell is going on Nintendo?!!

    Well, when I was in Berlin some months ago, almost every DVD or music store had these fireplace DVDs. I guess this one is going to be a hit in Germany :)

      I can understand the desire to look at a fireplace – plus TVs are relatively warm so the illusion is somewhat complete – but I can’t imagine anyone would be bored enough to take care of a virtual fireplace. :D

        Yeah, it’s actually better than it sounds. I bought one my self :) As for the Wii, I dunno… I would be bored to fish in front of my TV, but… :)
