Nintendo says: Only geeks and otaku want a harddrive {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 11th 2008 3:29PM Seems to me that anyone who really uses their Wii would want additional storage. Especially now that it's been announced that lack of storage is what is stopping some companies from coding for the Wii or releasing Downloadable Content. It doesn't have to be a Hard Drive, though. Open up USB Drives for us to use. That's got to be better than copying items to/from an SD card. For my part, I don't need it at the moment, but the amount of space a download takes up will eventually cause me to stop and think about whether I want to download something or not. It's convenient to have everything easily accessible rather than having to swap things around. Add in the time to swap/re-load and it just makes sense to allow some form of expandable storage.

Wii Fanboy Review: Toki Tori {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 6th 2008 6:03PM So far no rapid dexterity, but I'm stuck on World 1 - Level 9. Tried different stuff for way too long, then went to bed. Haven't had a chance to try again yet. Definitely puzzling to me, but I'm sure it will be obvious once i see the solution.

Enjoying it quite a bit.

DS Fanswag: The swarm {DS Fanboy}

Jun 6th 2008 5:58PM Insecticide. Despite the mediocre review, I like Adventure games and this is (partially) an adventure game. Reminds me a little of an old Enyx game, but I can't remember the name of it right now. Something involving a Dragon, main character's name was Blade. Mixed Action/Adventure. Kind of cool (but it let you skip the action if too difficult).

Fanswag: Wii Fit and a Nyko Energy Pak {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 4th 2008 2:48AM Want to get in some extra exercise and while Wii Fit is by no means a total solution, it can help from what I've seen.

DS Daily: Adventurous at heart {DS Fanboy}

Jun 3rd 2008 12:28PM Where to even start on this one? Space Quest, Quest for Glory, King's Quest, Monkey Island, and the list could go on for a while. However, with that in mind, the DS has really brought back a lot of that style of gaming. It's a great platform for it. With Syberia potentially planned, we have another pretty good game coming out. There are already numerous adventure games and ScummVM (noted above) will work to play a good number of older games.

I will say that the really old games that required keyboard/typing got a little frustrating. I remember trying to climb the beanstalk in KQ1 - had to give up because I kept falling off when using just the keyboard. :P However, the typing was awesome and you could get some great responses from really off the wall stuff.

I would disagree that the cart size is too small for ports. The older games are really, really small. However, I can see that they would want to upgrade the graphics a little for some of them. Still, that shouldn't bump the size up to a really high level. I believe that Tierra Soft (AGDInteractive?) managed to re-create KQ1 and 2 in VGA with a reasonable file size and are working on QG2. If some people working in their spare time can do that, surely the larger companies can as well.

Fanswag: Wii Fit and a Nyko Energy Pak {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 2nd 2008 5:50PM Losing weight while having fun and hopefully also improving bloodflow to my brain so I don't forget about stuff like this in the future. :)

Wii releases this week: LEGO Indiana Jones edition {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 2nd 2008 1:07PM Lego Indy - definitely (though I hear it's on order for my Birthday so I'll be waiting). If it's anything like the Lego Star Wars for Wii, it's going to be great. Besides, I like the fact that it's a relatively kid-friendly franchise. All of the destruction and action, but done to bricks. :) Besides, the game designers seem to have a good time respecting the movie/story while also poking some fun at it and all done without words. Truly great works and I look forward to it.

Wii Warm Up: Homebrew {Nintendo Wii Fanboy}

Jun 2nd 2008 12:56PM I'll be honest, I don't particularly want to mess up my Wii at this point, but the idea of running homebrew appeals to me. ScummVM and various other games that people come up with are almost always creative. Besides, someone may come up with a way to run a better browser than Opera and open up some of the capabilities for the newer Flash websites - video and such. :)

My biggest concern at this point is not being able to use my console. Nintendo could very well release some update that checks for this channel and causes issues or stops it from working properly and I want to keep on playing released games. If that means no homebrew channel for a while, so be it.

Where's my woolly mammoth? {DS Fanboy}

Jun 1st 2008 12:33AM It's actually a really cool game on the PC. I imagine that it would transition really well to the DS and I hope they don't have to make cuts to get it to fit properly. The whole world is so well designed and intricate in the game that it's well worth it. I was sad to see it end just because it was such a good story and the puzzles were engaging (if contrived at times with a snippy engineer :) )
