Let’s just put it on the table: Let’s Tap is a game about beating out a rhythm on a cardboard box. It’s dashboard drumming tuned to a purpose; you tap, and (weird, psychedelic) things happen on screen.
There’s an adorable new item available in craftsholic’s Etsy storefront: custom felt Mii pins! These little brooches are handsewn recreations of Nintendo’s distinctive avatars. There’s just one hitch: you can’t get a custom pin. No, instead you can select from craftsholic’s Miis.
There’s a lot going on in the Final Fantasy franchise lately. Whatever your preference, you can get it: retro remakes on the DS, retro originals on the Game Boy (in the past few years, at least), and the epic forthcoming Final Fantasy XIII.
The first Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles (for the GameCube) made use of the Game Boy Advance as a controller and 2nd screen. While it was a good idea on paper, in reality the feature was a shackle: multiplayer was only possible if every player had a Game Boy Advance to use as a controller.
Nothing says love like biting into a chocolate rendering of your significant other! Paul Pape Design’s Chocomiis took geek Valentine’s Day by storm last year, though they had no real name and apparently no real boxes, but now the Wii avatar chocolates are attempting to make a comeback.
So now that the new year has passed, are you finally carrying out your resolution to get in shape by playing Wii Fit? Well just because you’re gonna spend countless hours standing on that Balance Board doesn’t mean that your feet have to hurt afterward.
You could keep an actual toolbox around, with things like screwdrivers and hammers… or you could con your gadgets into performing double duty as home improvement devices. And sure, you may not want to pound nails with your iPhone, but I bet you have no objection to using your Wii remote as a level.
Nintendo’s first money printing machine was Super Mario Bros., which sold 40 million units. What kind of game do you think could top that? A Zelda game? Pokemon? Another Mario game? It’s none of the above, because a certain bundled game called Wii Sports has now sold at least 42 million copies.
Nintendo’s WiiWare is just racking up all sorts of wacky games lately, and the latest I’ve heard about is the kind of thing you buy sight-unseen on the basis of a hilarious name: Eduardo the Samurai Toaster.
With a name like Planet Pachinko, you might expect this game, which is set for release next week in the U.S. on WiiWare, the Nintendo Wii’s marketplace for original games, to actually be a pachinko game.
A week ago we posted about a sweet Wii gun mod that was modeled after an MP5. Here’s another gun mod that combines Wii and Counter-Strike. It is, in the words of it’s creator, a DESERT EAGLE WITH OFFICIAL MARKINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some people want games to be as sweet as sugar, with showers of fresh blossoms and lollipops instead of blood, and frolicking in place of combat. Those aren’t the people who made this custom Wii Zapper.
Square Enix just had a big day in Japan, with details on the new Dragon Quest X announcement for the Nintendo Wii, and more on the slightly-older (and still unreleased) Dragon Quest IX, which is slated for the DS.
Is that a Wii-mote in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you pop these mini Wii controller keychains into your pants.
These weensy Wii-motes (just 2.25″ tall) don’t just look cool.
I’m sure some of you have seen the numerous and occasionally cryptic do’s and don’ts for the DSi. Well Blockhead’s Guitar Hero controller for the Wii also has its own demands. I was just minding my own business, laughing at Engrish pics, when I came upon Blockhead’s manual for their Max V wireless guitar.
Do you constantly leave your Wii-mote lying around? Do you find it stuck under the couch cushions between some moldy Fritos and loose pocket change? Maybe it’s time you found a place to keep your controller so it doesn’t keep getting lost.
