This tiny little 1cm x 3cm circuit board may not look like much, but the WiiChuck is the easiest way ever to unlock the world of Wii Nunchuck hacking.
Just plug the WiiChuck into to bottom of your Wii Nunchuck controller, and you’ll have access to all of the wonderful data the controller can generate.
Is the Nintendo Wii going to get a recumbent bike peripheral sometime soon? From the looks of this leaked marketing slide spotted over on NeoGAF (along with another for a rumored Wii Fit Plus) it sure looks like a possibility.
While it’s not clear if the image is from Nintendo or from a 3rd-party accessory maker, it definitely looks like something I could see hooking up to my Wii.
Imagine this scenario: you’re in the living room. A magical world unfolds on the television screen, a world filled with flowers and butterflies, a world with a golden road unspooling before you. It’s a road that might lead anywhere.
Platform games can get complex, sure, but we’ve been running and jumping for a long, long time, and it gets more difficult to make creative platformers all the time. One way to change it up? Make your protagonist invisible and give him a tower to climb.
Hudson Soft’s Shadow Tower was just revealed in Famitsu, and it features quite a concept: traveling the world as the shadow of an invisible boy, interacting with other shadows, with only a butterfly to help him along.
Like that black Wii, huh? It’ll go quite well with the black lines, right? Well, too bad, suckers (if you live in the U.S.): Nintendo’s not planning on sharing any of this particular brand of awesome to you.
the bbps‘ Marc DeAngelis is one unhappy Wii-owner. His friend pointed out several black vertical lines that flickered on and off the screen while they were playing. His friend added that that same thing happened to him; he had to have his console’s GPU replaced.
You could, if you are so inclined, go spend a few bucks trying to fish a cheap plushie out of some half-assed crane machine… orrrrr you could jack a pair of giant robot arms, do a little creative programming, and go fishing for BMWs.
If you ever wondered what that mysterious turtle Lakitu would look like if he was, say, human, your day is here. In fact, you get a large chunk of the cast of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros Brawl, all in the disturbing vision of Greg De Stefano.
If the only design on your consoles are dust and fingerprints, you might want to check out Etsy shop NoveltyGallery and their vinyl skins for various game systems. Unfortunately there are no video game-themed skins; most of them are abstract, floral, or child-friendly designs.
I’m not sure who decided that water guns and rubber duckies were just the thing to help sell the console that has never spent more than a few days at most sitting on the shelf, but that seems to be the thrust behind GameStop’s wacky new Wii bundles.
The GameStop bundle: when it’s important to buy a water gun and a gaming console at the same time!
No, this oddly-shaped pink gadget isn’t some sort of sex toy. Unless you think that playing with your Wii is a stimulating experience.
What you’re looking at here is the Conny Q3 Sports, a video game console out of China that’s designed to play like the Nintendo Wii, but for a whole lot less money.
It’s a match made in silly retro heaven: the Nintendo Wii and its motion-sensing controller (perfect for shooting) and classic corny live action arcade shooters. Majesco’s just released a pack of three Mad Dog McCree games at a budget price.
In an interview with USA Today, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. video game on the Wii will have an optional feature, tentatively called “Demo Play.” I could describe Demo Play using a single word, but instead I’ll let Miyamoto-sama explain: “In New Super Mario Bros.
Rejoice (Japan)! New colors for Nintendo entertainment systems! And at last, new colors for the Wii. Well, new color, singular. Well, sort of a color. It’s black. Well, it’s different, anyway.
The new DSi is decked out in red, which is nice, but not a patch on this sexy black Wii.
While the matte surface is much more practical for a handheld, it just isn’t as slick as the shine on that Wii.
Microsoft today took the wraps off of their new input device for the Xbox 360, known as Project Natal. The new technology does away with traditional controllers and lets player use their full body to interact with video games and the Xbox 360 interface.
Unlike Nintendo’s Wii-mote, the Project Natal (pronounced “na-tall”) sensor box can detect movements of your entire body, and can also recognize voices.
