Tomena Sanner: More Like Toomuch Insaner

Tomena Sanner: More Like Toomuch Insaner
Tomena Sanner looks like it was produced by a team of drunk 8-year olds. By that I mean IT IS AWESOME. The game stars businessman Mr. Susumu (susumu is Japanese for forward or continue), who is late for…something, and will not stop running until he gets to his destination, regardless of what’s in his way.

Dragon Quest Controller Can Only be Used by King Arthur

Dragon Quest Controller Can Only be Used by King Arthur
…at least that’s what it looks like to me. This is a concept image of the controller for the Wii port of the arcade game Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory. Clearly, an absurd title deserves an equally absurd controller. The controller will be made by HORI and will sell for ¥12,800 (approx.

Super Mario Bros. Beaten on a Dancepad

Super Mario Bros. Beaten on a Dancepad
Now I had enough trouble beating the original Super Mario Bros. with a game pad, so when I saw this clip of a guy beating the game with his feet, my jaw about dropped to the floor.

My Fireplace for the Wii: Burning Down the House

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.

Powerv Quad Wii Remote Charger: Wii-Reless Power-Up

Powerv Quad Wii Remote Charger: Wii-Reless Power-Up
Konnet’s already given PS3 and Xbox 360 owners a lot of love, and now it’s aiming to serve Wii owners with the PowerV Quad charger. What’s neat about the PowerV Quad is definitely not it’s name, but the fact that it uses inductive charging, meaning there’s no wires or other direct connection needed.

Guy Turns Famicom Controller Into a Wii-Mote

Guy Turns Famicom Controller Into a Wii-Mote
It’s anyone’s guess why you’d want to rip apart your shiny new Wii-mote controller and make it looks like something out of the 1980s, but this is the DIY-geek generation, and where there’s a will, there’s a way. This Japanese modder took two old Famicom controllers (that’s NES to you and I), and tore them apart.

Xcm Vbox2 Advanced Adapter Lets You Play Console Games on Your Pc Screen

Xcm Vbox2 Advanced Adapter Lets You Play Console Games on Your Pc Screen
Let’s say you’ve got an video game console sitting in your room, and already have a computer with its own monitor. Unless you’re fortunate enough to have a computer display with auxiliary video inputs, you’d need a second display for your console.

Wii Karaoke Mute-Mic: if You’D Rather Look Stupid Than Sound Stupid

Wii Karaoke Mute-Mic: if You’D Rather Look Stupid Than Sound Stupid
The USB Karaoke Mute-Mic for the Wii claims to absorb some of your horrible – or loud – singing so you can still have a good time without making the people around want to kill you.

Nintendo Wants Ds in Schools in Japan, Forgets Every Japanese Kid Already has One

Nintendo Wants Ds in Schools in Japan, Forgets Every Japanese Kid Already has One
… possible even two. Legendary video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto told Forbes that he’s “devoting” himself to finding out more ways to get the Nintendo DS as well as the Wii into schools. Miyamoto also said that Nintendo will start “to roll out the Nintendo DS system in junior high and elementary schools in Japan starting in the new school year.” That statement cracked me up; makes it sound as if the schools in Japan don’t have any say in the matter.

Wii Laptop Casemod: the Loveable Luggable
Did you ever wish you could take your Nintendo Wii with you wherever you go? Well this enterprising casemodder proves that you can do it if you have the time, patience, and modding talent, it’s definitely possible. Modder OMGPedoBear took about 3 months in his spare time building this Wii laptop.

Ghostbuster Wii-Mote Mod: Ready for Action!

Ghostbuster Wii-Mote Mod: Ready for Action!
With this fancy wii-mote, the question that is on the tip of my tongue is simply: who are you going to call? Answer: Ghostbusters! This wii-mote is the work of Jack, and he really loves Ghostbusters.

Wii Fit + Wii Sports + Ddr – Fun = Ifit Sports

Wii Fit + Wii Sports + Ddr – Fun = Ifit Sports
I’m reasonably certain this game is not Wii Fit or Wii Sports. Actually, I’m sure of it. Apparently another cheap Chinese knock-off, the makers of ifit Sports want us to think it’s a combination Nintendo’s popular sports and workout games.

Classic Controller Pro Coming to a Wii Near You in April

Classic Controller Pro Coming to a Wii Near You in April
A confession: I do not like Nintendo’s Wii. I do not like to waggle, I do not like to daggle. Wii is only fun, for me, when I am playing with the Wiimote held horizontally (like in Punch-Out!!

Muscle March Pumps Up Your Nintendo Wii

Muscle March Pumps Up Your Nintendo Wii
I knew there was a reason I loved Japanese games. Here’s what might be the strangest game to come stateside since Noby Noby Boy and the Katamari Damacy series. Namco Bandai’s Muscle March is one of this week’s releases on the Nintendo WiiWare shop, and it’s truly an odd-ball. I’ll leave it to the game’s creator to sum up Muscle March for you: “The all mighty protein powder has been stolen so it’s up to Tony and his muscle-bound crew to catch the thieves.

A Monster Hunter’S Essentials: Weapons, Armor, and Twitter and Facebook Accounts

A Monster Hunter’S Essentials: Weapons, Armor, and Twitter and Facebook Accounts
Monster Hunter 3 is the best selling third-party Wii game in Japan, and to ensure that the coming North American and European versions enjoy the same success, Capcom has started revving up the hype machine. So Monster Hunters, ready your keyboards, hold tight to your mice, and venture out to the wilderness of twitter and Facebook, for there you will find Ironbeard McCullough aka The Master Hunter, “a proud and distinguished hunter from the bustling town of Rockrack,” whose  “blade has drawn true through hide, tooth and scale.” That’s Ironbeard right there, the menacing dragon on the right.
