Nintendo 3DS Has Some Decent 3D Chops

Nintendo recently leaked some 3DS screenshots to Japanese media in preparation for the upcoming launch of the 3DS in Japan (in the US we will have to wait until likely March timeframe). While you cannot experience any of the awesomeness that is the 3D effect on the 3DS, you can get an idea of the […]

Wii MotionPlus + Grand Slam Tennis = Garbage

Ok so I bought into the hype-machine that is everything-Nintendo and plopped down my $19.99 for a Wii MotionPlus when it came out and along with the only other highly rated Wii MotionPlus-enabled game that launched with it: Grand Slam Tennis. Here’s my single sentence description of the experience for everyone that was curious “Was […]

Nintendo Punch-Out Wii Debut Trailer

Having just got done playing through a few matches of Wii Boxing and dying for some true 1:1 motion mapping instead of the insanely confusing “flick” mechanics in said title, I just got really excited stumbling across the debut trailer for the remake of Punch-Out for the Wii: I have no idea yet if this […]

Computer Mouse to be Extinct in 5 Years… Again

Remember 10 years ago when voice-recognition and Dragon Naturally Typing was going to replace the keyboard? Yea that didn’t quite pan out how we all thought… I think at some point we were going to replace the mouse with eye-tracking lasers on the monitor and then some sort of brain-tie-in that would tell when you […]

Nintendo Wii MotionPlus – True 3D Space Movement

Damn, it seems that Nintendo has some bombs to drop at E3 this year, leading up with a new “true 3D motion accessory” that adds on to the existing Wiimote. Apparently the new addon, combined with all the existing measurment facilities of the Wiimote, can completely accurately, with a 1:1 accuracy, map your physical motion […]

Guitar Hero 3 Wii Refund Offered

Brad Agdern sent in news that Activision has offered a complete $132 refund for Guitar Hero III for the Wii or a remastered replacement disk for folks that were put out by the audio on the Guitar Hero III not being Dolby Surround even though it was advertised as such. A pretty nice move considering […]

NEO GEO Arcade Stick Coming to Wii

Suh-weet. For the folks out there <cough>me</cough> that had a NEO GEO and fell in love with the arcade stick that it had, you can rejoice in knowing it will be coming to the Wii shortly. I’m not sure there are fighters on the Wii and VC that are so badass that the NEO GEO […]

Interactive White Board with a Nintendo Wii

Johnny Lee is at it again. We blogged about his first invention (using the IR-sensing capabilities of the Bluetooth Nintendo Wii controller), which was a Minority Report-esque multi-touch display that you could manipulate with your fingers. Now it looks like he’s refined his ideas a bit further. Modifying a typical Bic Pen to include a […]

Minority Report-esque Control with Nintendo Wii

Johnny Lee is hardcore. Using the LED-detecting ability of the Wiimote, combined with some reflective tape on his fingertips along with a LED panel, he was able to create an interactive field that he can manipulate with his two fingers. It’s simple, but really damn smart and could lead to some interesting commercialized applications (e.g. […]

Manhunt 2 Banned in the UK

VoodooExtreme reports that the BBFC has banned the sale of Manhunt 2 in the UK… the last time this happened was in 1997 when Carmageddon was banned (then later overturned). VE asks if Rockstar has gotten ahead of themselves with the whole “violence is awesome” card, and I have to agree. There are all sorts […]

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles Co-Op?

  Kotaku reports that there are rumors the new RE: UC may include co-op. Kotaku says “nay” to the rumor of the co-op, and I would normally agree except the game has already been shown to be a “rails” game… meaning you don’t control movement. So I see no reason you couldn’t have a co-op […]

Circuit City to Gamers: Dance Idiots!

Earlier this week Circuit City ran a circular with a garuntee on it that if Super Paper Mario wasn’t in stock and available to them by 2:30pm on release date when they came to pick it up, they would get a $20 gift card. That is how the ad was worded. Little did anyone know, […]
