  • And Why Shouldn't I Build A Wii Balance Board Into My Sneakers?

    Here’s a weird project. Instead of using a Wii Balance Board to play those Wii Fitness and such games, disassemble the hardware and stuff it into a pair of perfectly good Nikes. I’m not sure it’s entirely practical in this case, but my gadget-sense seems to think that sensor-equipped shoes will be coming with games some time in the near future. They won’t have tentacles… Read More

  • A Video In Which Sony Is All Like "Motion Will Kill Nintendo"

  • The Next Nintendo Console Will "Leave You All With Your Mouth Open"

    Nintendo apparently is working on something big. So big that that Metroid’s co-creator, Yoshio Sakamoto, recently stated that it’s going to surprise us all and, well, leave [us] all with out mouths open.

  • Buy Metroid: Other M And Get $20 Off MotionPlus Bundle

    Gamestop (damn their eyes) has a deal right now where if you buy Metroid: Other M, you can pick up a MotionPlus bundle for $20 off. Total cost: a billion dollars. Well, more like $85 plus tax, but it’s still a fair chunk of cash. Of course, it’s better than the $105 you would have paid yesterday for the same thing. Man, this is why I play Super Nintendo.

  • Metroid: Other M Impressions

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/video_embed.php?id=3645 I’m going through a bit of the new Metroid game by Team Ninja, the same guys who made Ninja Gaiden and I’m pleased to report that the game, although a departure from the tamer Metroid games, the injection of real emotion and a bit of (non-bloody) space horror adds considerably to the game.

  • Grease: The Video Game

    Let me let that sink in. Just a minute. There. Got it? How does it feel? They made Grease into a video game. Yeah. The movie your and my mom both love, the movie that’s kind of fun if you watch it once but kind of annoying if you have to watch it a bunch of times? Yeah. They made that into a Wii game. Yeah. I know. Read More

  • THQ's uDraw GameTablet Is… A Wiicom Tablet

    Thank god another peripheral maker has made something that I can pun on with “Wii.” The other options are getting stale. So, this Wiicom tablet (reference, if you’re not clued in) is an accessory that lets you draw inside Wii games. Great! Not sure many games were really crying out for this, since you already control a free cursor and “drawing” games work better on… Read More
