    This, this is a pretty nifty case mod, and it’s for the Wii—you normally don’t see too many Wii case mods out there. It’s called the Wii UNLimited Edition, and it’s water-cooled. Thumbs up for completely superfluous water-cooling. Read More

  • Wii 2 Announcement At E3 Hinted At Within Industry

    Nintendo hasn’t announced anything, nor have there been any leaks or even indications that Nintendo is doing anything but stay the course.

Yeah, kind of a disappointment after that headline, but that’s what they did! Don’t blame me! There’s a nice… Read More

  • This Portable Wii Wins Our Mii’s Hearts And Respect

    We love homebrew, custom-made, DIY solutions. They scream geek love and dedication louder than even dumb fanboy tattoos. This Wii laptop, and the word laptop is used loosely, is about the best thing since, well, this Wii laptop. This solution is a tad bit smaller thanks to the exclusion of the optical drive in favor of a game loader chip called SunDriver. Click through for a video look at… Read More

  • Surprise! Wii Speak Microphone Discontinued

    It appears that the Wii Speak microphone we saw debuted at E3 2008 with the new Animal Crossing hasn’t seen the interest Nintendo hoped for, and has been discontinued. I probably could have told them that in the planning stages and saved them some money. Now the question is: will the Vitality Sensor share the same fate? Read More
