Blog Update & Wii on DS?!?!

Hey everyone . OK, Wii review coming along nicely if a bit long. I may have to cut it down or at least offer a concise version. Coming out this Friday 11pm GMT hopefully. Also, if anyone has been Zorbing can you tell me what it is like because it looks loads of fun and I want to go. However, the official website was horrible to use so I would like some personal stories. Let me plug this blog: What I have read seemed pretty good. It seems to be about a author trying to get her book published. She got a good review by someone, I'll buy it if I find it.

My friend now has Xbox Live Gold so I will be checking that out soon. I may be getting a review of the new Star Fox Commander game for the DS/Lite from another friend. The news channel on the Wii has now been released which means all shipped channels are now online. Review of channels included in Wii review.

Finally, check this out, I found it when I was looking for a desktop background (don't ask) and was quite amazed by it. Basically, some guy plugged his DS Lite into a Wii, put the sensor bar behind it and it worked! Now that is backwards compatibility for you. Unfortunately I cannot check it as I have no DS but I have friends on the job. Here is the link

Wii Outlook good

Wii review coming soon, I have thought of a title for it and I have started writing some rough drafts in my head. I managed to get the Legend of Zelda and it is very good. I am going to film some footage this weekend hopefully and put it on Youtube. However, I need to make a quick post about the games out look for the Wii. It looked a, well, a little drab. With Metroid looking like the only decent title coming out any time soon. However, both SSX and the Godfather got very positive previews on GS. You can read them here:

Stay tuned for more news. Also, Wario Ware received a very good review which surprised me as it looked a little tacky. You can read the review here.

Boris Johnson slams videogames //

Boris Johnson slams videogames //

Ok, commenting firstly on the article. Mr. Johnson is wrong as a large portion of games you must use your mind for example, Legend of Zelda is a puzzle game and I have to put all my brain energy in to solving the problems. Games can show a story like a book and it will aide the players understanding people emotions. Furthermore, at least with Ninty, which is what the title is, their latest consoles have either kept you mentally or physically active.

I was very angry at him until I read the last sentence and I forgave him completely.

He has become something of a cult figure in the UK, with some fans calling for him to become Prime Minister - but according to Johnson, there is as much chance of this happening as "my being reincarnated as an olive".

I have a Wii

I played on a Wii yesterday, and today I managed to buy one after reciving some intel at the place I played the Wii. Full post coming soon. Second Wiimote sold out, Legend of Zelda- Sold out. So, I only have the core system. And I am already hooked to boxing.
