Sega Tells It How It Is

Need further persuasion that the Wii is just downright bad? When the president of Sega of America starts talking shit, you know you’ve got trouble on your hands: “There is a lot of crap coming out for the Wii in general.

Nintendo Screws Third-Party Developers

Remember the Wii MotionPlus, the gimmicky accessory that attaches to the end of the Wiimote to more quickly and accurately reflect motions in a 3-D space?” It turns out Nintendo is getting some bad recognition regarding their lack of disclosure involving the accessory and third-party developers. When third-party developers were asked of their opinions of the accessory, they all seemed ...

More Expansions More Money

With this new Wiimote accessory, I can’t help but be reminded of the N64 expansion slot, an accessory that should’ve been included with the system on day one.

Discard Your WiiMotes In Favor Of Something More Fun

Let’s be square with one another: you haven’t used your WiiMotes since you got Super Smash Bros: Brawl. That’s alright though, because Tom Tlalim of the Netherlands was in the same boat as you. Using eight Nintendo Wii controllers, that previously were doing nothing more than collecting dust, Tom is able to create and manipulate sound in real time. This ...

No One Does BWL Runs Even If You’re Standing

No one wants to stand during a raid. Yet, these German fellows who turned the Wii Balance Board into an interactive control mechanic for World Of Warcraft do want to stand as they play. They’ve done a similar project with Google Maps but this software mod sets the all time precedent of uselessness. Relaying data to a laptop via Bluetooth, ...

10 Alternatives to the Nintendo Wii Fit

Reggie Fils-Aime is a liar. He wants you to believe that the Wii Fit will make you skinny but the truth is: It won’t. To top it off, he’s one weird looking mother fucker. Wii Fit is said to be influenced by activities in Miyamoto’s daily life. A Japanese man obsessed with clothes hanger puppets does not bench press or ...
