Before the Wii Remote, there was the GyroPod

See that above? Those are the prototype designs for the GyroPod, which could have become Wii's controller. It was meant to be a one or two hand controller and had motion sensing capabilities, simliar to the Wii Remote.

Guitar Hero III might not be online?

Bryan Lam of RedOctane has revealed that Guitar Hero III may not be online:

"...we're working closely with Nintendo for an online solution, though at the moment we're unable to confirm the status of the online multi-player."

He also commented that the same goes for downloadable content. I was really looking forward to this game and even though I'll probably still get it if it doesn't have online capabilites, I would have really liked for it to have that.


Bonk 3 for US VC on Monday, 3 other titles announced

Good old Hudson has put up the month's TurboGrafx-16 releases on their Virtual Console page. This Monday, we'll be getting Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure, and later in the month we'll be getting Neutopia 2, World Class Baseball, and Legend of Hero Tonma.


Neo Geo Heads to Japan VC on September 11th

We knew Neo Geo games were coming and we now know when. Japan gets their first Neo Geo title on September 11th and it is Fatal Fury. Soon to follow for Japan are World Heroes and Magician Lord. The cost? 900 Wii Points. The SNKP President also said their goal is a worldwide release, so I think it's safe to say we'll get a Neo Geo game on either September 10th or 17th.

IGN's Hands-On with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock for Wii

Guitar Hero games are lots of fun. I've played it on PS2 and on the Xbox 360, but what I really want is to buy it and rock on my Wii. Well, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is coming out for Wii and it looks awesome. It has all the features of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, and more. What more you ask? Here's a taste of some of the new features:

- Wireless Guitar
- Guitar can be taken apart for easy storage
- Guitar has customizable faceplates
- It costs $10 less than the other versions (Wii version costs $89.99)
- Has rumble thanks to the Wii Remote that you put in the guitar
- The speaker on the Wii Remote is used to make a noise when you miss a note
- Fast loading times

This game looks amazing and I am definitely buying it once I get the chance.

Nintendo Holding a Conference on 9/5! [UPDATED]

Good news and bad news, folks. The bad news is that Nintendo isn't showing up at the Tokyo Game Show, which they rarely do anyways. The good news? Nintendo is holding their own conference before Tokyo Game Show. The conference will be held on Wednesday, September 5th and will focus on Nintendo's games releasing from October to December. I think that's better than Nintendo attending TGS. And for those that haven't figured it out, that release period includes some awesome Wii titles, like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl in particular.

Some third parties are also holding conferences. Capcom has one on August 31st, which is tomorrow, and SEGA has one on September 14th. I don't know about you, but I'm excited for Nintendo's conference. I am sure we'll get some new information on games I've been wanting to hear more about so I look forward to it. The countdown begins: 6 days!


[UPDATE] I just remembered something. Around E3 07 time, Reggie made a comment saying a surprise is coming in September... and the conference, well it's in September. Could we find out this surprise in 6 days? Maybe. Not only that but Beth Llewelyn of NOA said this:

"After we get back from E3, we'll look at the calendar and figure out the right time to do something very specific for Smash Bros. Brawl," added Llewelyn

Is that comment connected to this conference? Maybe. I'm even more excited now.

Logitech to release a Wii accessory this year

“(Our goal is) to have at least one product out for the Wii this year. Having the motion-sensing in the Sixaxis, that really works for some games. And for the Wii – you’ve seen people rush out and buy the Wii for that realism, if you’re swinging a tennis racket, you know how to do it. Hopefully we’ll be at the forefront of pushing that further, combining some of the two.” - Chris Spearin, Logitech

I wonder what they have planned. It'll be interesting to see.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Hidden Message with Translation

For those that don't know, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has a hidden message from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. The only problem is that Iwata speaks in Japanese, but don't worry, we have a translation. Below is the hidden message and the translation:

“Hello, this is Iwata from Nintendo. You may not know from an outsiders point of view, but being a director is really hard! When things are really busy and stressful we (us directors) may look tired and sick, then people may feel sorry for us! But in my case, it’s the opposite, I get fatter and fatter, so then people don’t think I’m stressed at all!”

My Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Impressions

So, today I went over to a GameStop near my apartment and I played Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I got to play for almost an hour, so I got a good grasp of what the game is like. So what's my Prime history? I rented Metroid Prime and I thought it was an ok game. I bought Metroid Prime 2: Echoes used really cheap at Blockbuster I think it was and thought that was ok. I had heard that Metroid Prime 3 was one of the best wii games out there and that it was better than the first two in the series, so I was looking forward to playing it. I was not disappointed.

The graphics were great and the cutscenes were fun to watch because of it, though the cutscenes would have been better if the sound was turned up on the TV there. Anyways, the gameplay was very much like the other Metroid Prime games. It had the same feel to it, which I was sort of worried about, but it actually wasn't that bad this time around. Things were a bit more straight forward and that helped. I even got a few people to ask me if they could play the game, but I refused to let them. They were kids anyways, so they wouldn't have a license and weren't allowed to play.

And of course, the topic many have wondered is the controls. I loved the controls. Being a big FPS fan, the controls worked great for the game. I do have Red Steel, and despite its issues with the controls, the controls are still fun. Metroid Prime 3 had great controls, so that made it even better. I loved using the nunchuk to pull off enemies' shields and using the wii remote to open locks and things. Aiming was very easy with the wii remote, so I was happy about that too.

All in all, I recommend getting it, or at least trying it out. Will I buy it? Maybe. I don't have much money as it is, so I'll be getting Brawl and one or two other things. Maybe one day I'll buy it, but even if I don't, it still goes up on the greatest wii games list, alongside Twilight Princess. The Corruption is here... and I like it.

3 New VC Games Head to the VC... Yesterday!

So, yesterday was Monday and that meant new Virtual Console games. So why didn't I update the site with that info? Well, there was no press release at first like usual and 3 games were added without a press release. Later, a press release came out but was forgotten about since the games were already released. So, I guess in all of that mess I forgot to post the 3 games added yesterday. Well, I'll post the press release for you now:

It's Sequel Week on the Virtual Console™. You won't have much time to reminisce though, as each of these three titles adds a scintillating chapter and new elements to their storied franchises. Whether you're into run-and-gun, role-playing or action, this is the week for you.

Three new classic games go live at 9 a.m. Pacific time. Nintendo adds new games to the Wii Shop Channel every Monday. Wii™ owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points™ to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new games are:

Super C™ (NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Fantasy Violence, 500 Wii Points): In this action-packed sequel to the popular Contra, players have little time to think. Experience run-and-gun game play at its best as you take control of Mad Dog or Scorpion and once again battle the forces of Red Falcon. Stages feature a combination of perspectives (side scrolling, top down, etc.) and intense battles against huge bosses. Use a variety of powerful weapons and tap into your killer instinct to survive the deadly waves of enemies. And if you're scared, recruit a friend to help you. Because if your trigger finger lacks stamina, then Earth will lack a future!

BREATH OF FIRE™ II (Super NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Violence, 800 Wii Points): Featuring a wide range of characters and personalities and a vast, endless world to explore, Breath of Fire II is the sequel to the original smash-hit role-playing game. In a world set 500 years after the previous installment, in a frontier village known as Gate, the father and sister of a young boy known as Ryu are suddenly abducted. Strangely, all the villagers appear to have completely forgotten everything about the incident, and Ryu has instantly become an orphan. At a church, Ryu meets Bow, another orphan in a similar predicament, and they slip away from town together to begin their adventure. Take advantage of the multiple game-play viewpoints found in the game (such as the quarter-view perspective during battles that made the original game so popular) to use exciting abilities like shaman fusing and dragon transformations and help these two heroes complete their mission.

Ghouls'n Ghosts (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone –Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Ghouls'n Ghosts is the sequel to the popular action game Ghosts'n Goblins, originally released in the arcades and later ported to the Genesis. One full-moon night, three years after the battle with Astaroth, a ray of light shoots through Princess Prin Prin, and her soul is stolen right in front of Arthur's eyes. To save his bride's soul, Arthur the knight must battle all manner of evil undead creatures with a variety of weapons, powerful magic and new actions.


Pre-order MP3 from Amazon? You might want to cancel

If you're one of those that pre-ordered Metroid Prime 3: Corruption from Amazon, then you're going to want to read the rest of this post. If you're ready to play some Metroid Prime 3 today, you'll have to wait until September 2nd says Amazon. They won't be getting their games until September 2nd, so if you pre-ordered, I suggest you cancel it and go straight to a store near you to buy it.


RUMOR: NiGHTS Gets Delayed

Looking forward to playing NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams this year? Well, you might have to wait longer. Rumor is that SEGA has delayed NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams until Q1 2008. Their reason? We don't know. In fact, we don't even know if it's actually delayed or not, it's just a rumor.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Ships to Stores

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Today’s launch of Metroid(R) Prime 3: Corruption for Wii(TM) marks the end of a trilogy — and the start of the most active and dynamic Metroid adventure yet. With the motion-sensitive Wii Remote, you become one with heroine Samus Aran’s powerful arm cannon, while the Nunchuk can literally yank armor off enemies.

“Metroid Prime 3 has a revolutionary control style that makes it easy for anyone to immediately jump into the action,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “Now, an entirely new audience can experience this amazing first-person adventure.”

The rich story requires players to use their heads as much as their hands. Complex puzzles, tough enemies and new challenges put players inside the visor of the story’s heroine. As deadly Phazon threatens to corrupt Samus, she harnesses its power and attacks her enemies with superpowered weapons. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption features voice acting, new bounty hunters and three adjustable control settings for players of all skill levels.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, rated T for Teen, launches today exclusively for Wii. The game’s launch represents the culmination of Nintendo’s “Month of Metroid,” which has featured free Metroid Prime 3: Corruption videos available for download in the Wii Shop Channel and the release of the classic Metroid(R) and Super Metroid(R) for the Virtual Console(TM). For more information about Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, visit

Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other Wii features, visit


RUMOR: Nintendo Doing Online Testing?

Recently, someone on NeoGAF came across something interesting while looking at the connection data for Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. He found a code that seemed to be Nintendogs and Yoshi's Island. They're not online, so why is this code appearing? The code I'm talking about is the game code. Here are the links for those two games:

Yoshi's Island

Not only that but, 10 other titles were discovered. The thing to note about those 8 is that they're Wii titles. We don't know all of them, so I guessed on some. Here they are:

Ghost Squad
FIFA 2008?
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock?
NBA Live 208?
Japanese puzzle game
Also a Japanese puzzle game

What does it mean? Who knows. Maybe nothing.


The Mysterious Metroid Dread

Ever heard of Metroid Dread? Well, if not, I'll explain it. Metroid Dread was announced in Game Informer magazine in June 2005, and it's a 2D side-scroller Metroid game that takes place after Metroid Fusion. Throughout the past few years, we've had sites say it's coming, some sites put it on a release list of games coming in the future, and even a site that said it's been cancelled. So what's the deal with this game, is it coming or not? The real answer is we don't know. Nothing has been said officially on the subject by Nintendo, so we just don't know. There has been no evidence from Nintendo themselves that it's coming... until now. Well, it's not really evidence, but it's a possible hint.

Today, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption ships out to stores. Well, in the second half of the game, there is a control panel you can scan. Once scanned, you get the following message:

“Experiment status report update. Metroid project ‘Dread’ is nearing the final stages of completion.”

That looks to me like a hint that Metroid Dread is indeed coming and that we'll find out about it soon. But, keep in mind, it's still a rumor for now. I just don't see why it would be in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption if it wasn't real, but that's my opinion.


PLATTCHEN - Twist 'n 'Paint Interview

For those that don't know, PLATTCHEN - Twist 'n 'Paint is the first WiiWare title that we found out about. Here are some tidbits of an interview about it...

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your game, PLÄTTCHEN, and how does it incorporate the Wii Remote?

A: PLÄTTCHEN - twist 'n' paint is an intelligent puzzle shooter with 3D gameplay elements and the freedom to paint and to repaint any plättchen, the puzzle tiles in the game, to any color of the rainbow. Players select the color just by twisting the wiimote and with it the color wheel on screen. Plättchen of a similar color will react with each other but will not, as in other games, disappear instantly. A big thing in the game is the action-centric shooting part, which we will reveal at a later date. We often try to compare PLÄTTCHEN twist 'n' paint with classics like Tetris, Picross, Point Blank or Puzzle Bobble, but the game is so different that it just isn't comparable with any of them. Stay tuned for a completely new experience unlike anything before. Along with a unique 12-player simultaneous multiplayer mode, a huge number of other surprises await you.

Q: Nintendo say WiiWare will be available "Early 08", though George Harrison has stated that the service could launch as early as this year depending on what games are ready. Do you have a more specific date, and will PLÄTTCHEN be available on its launch?

A: Since most developers have been informed about the service only recently, we expect it to launch sometime in February or March of 2008. We will do our best to enrich the lineup with the availibility of PLÄTTCHEN - twist 'n' paint from the beginning.

Don't worry, I'm alive and the site is still running. The amount of news lately has just been so scarce. There's nothing worth posting right now, so that's why I haven't posted anything. Hopefully we'll start to get lots of news soon. At least you can count on a Smash Bros update tomorrow.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl to use Havok Physics

Havok's site has confirmed that Super Smash Bros. Brawl will use Havok Physics. So what are Havok Physics? Well I didn't know either, but wikipedia had this to say:

“It is designed for computer and video games by allowing interaction between objects or other characters in real-time. By using dynamical simulation, Havok allows for more lifelike worlds and animation, such as ragdoll physics.”

Sounds good to me!


Wii Balance Board Name Could Change

On Nintendo of Europe's Wii Release List, Wii Fit and the Wii Balance Board were on the list. The interesting part though is that it said the Wii Balance Board was a temporary name. It could end up staying as Wii Balance Board, but it could change. So, what do you think will happen? Do you think the name will change, and if it does, what do you think it'll be called?

The Manhunt 2 Controversy is Over, Manhunt 2 gets a M Rating

New York, NY - August 24, 2007 - Rockstar Games today announced it will release Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, and the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo in North America on October 31, 2007. This announcement follows the submission of a modified version of Manhunt 2 to the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), who has now rated the title “M” for Mature for ages 17 and older.

In June, Take-Two was compelled to suspend the release of the horror title when the ESRB issued an AO (Adults Only) rating.

“Manhunt 2 is important to us, and we’re glad it can finally be appreciated as a gaming experience,” said Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games. “We love the horror genre. Manhunt 2 is a powerful piece of interactive story telling that is a unique video game experience. We think horror fans will love it.”

“Manhunt 2 is an extraordinary game, and we eagerly anticipate its release in North America,” added Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two.

Manhunt 2 is the debut title from the newly formed Rockstar London studio, which is developing the game in conjunction with series creator Rockstar North. Early previews of Manhunt 2 have consistently praised the game’s original design and creative use of narrative, tone, and atmosphere to evoke an experience many consider unmatched in video games. The Wii version is being developed by Rockstar Toronto.

Video games rated Mature are for consumers ages 17 and older and are not intended for children. Along with the Mature rating, the ESRB also assigned the following content descriptors to Manhunt 2: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content and Use of Drugs.

Rockstar Games is a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO).
