I picked up Wii Sports Resort a few days ago, and have mixed feelings. I wasn't expecting a whole lot of depth from the game, so if all you're looking for is short party games then it's a pretty good buy. Single player isn't anything amazing (most games only last a couple of minutes, and some of them I wouldn't even classify as games), but like I said before multiplayer fun is where this game really shines. The stamp achievements do add a nice sense of replayability. But was it worth the money? Maybe, maybe not. You figure you're getting a MotionPlus accessory with it, which is $20 by itself, so Sports Resort on it's own is $30. Only a few of the games are really enticing, and some feel like the Wii Play games where it's simply there to show the capabilities of the MotionPlus accessory. I think a $40 price tag would have been nicer.

And come on Nintendo, where's my online play?

To be honest, I'm much more interested in hearing how much much better Wii Motion Plus actually is.

From $250 to $149? Aren't you being a tad optimistic there? If any price drop is going to happen, it's going to be to $200.

How To Install The Homebrew Channel On Your Wii

Aside from the fact that the Wii is getting a price drop, it also appears that this "Homebrew Channel" is getting popular. Unfortunately, this still isn't enough to encourage me to get the Wii instead of the luxurious-looking PS3 80GB model, not to mention that the majority of the RPGs I like all appear on the PS3. Oh well..

The Homebrew channel is getting vastly popular, mainly because of the discovery of Bannerbomb (cause it's free, unlike the Twilight Princess hack) . Being able to hack a wii with a simple SD card and very easy instructions, is a majorly good thing. Especially for pirates.

(And for those who don't know about Homebrew channel is..Read on)

And I figure it's worth it.

I myself have been exploring possibilities with that, downloading several apps, and found out how to get several different cool things running, like SNES, NES, GBA, N64, PSX, and Colecovision emulators. I can finally catch up on the good ol' games i never got a chance to play.

Backup launcher is one of the best reasons. I've broken several games, and this protects against that.

And I can even get One Piece running on my wii. +

The one terrible thing about using Homebrew The chance of being bricked. If you make a backup of a game without using a Brickblocker, there's a chance you get bricked (Wii becomes unusable). Although there is a solution.

I'd easily suggest it to anyone. I've even checked to see if it's easy to get caught, and the main answer is "No, unless your stupid enough to install homebrew channel and send it in for a repair (w/out removing it first)"

For people who haven't heard about it: Opera, aka Internet Channel, is for free now. People who paid for it will receive 500pts credit, valid for a NES game only. BTW apparently it uses flash lite 3.1 now, which means it should support apps up to flash 8.

Some new Tales of Grace screens on famitsu, introducting the two new characters, Pasukaru and Mariku Shizaasu(?).

NMH: DS video on gametrailers video 1, video 2 and some impressions on the game over on kotaku

It is actually nice to how good a game can look like if the devs put some efforts to it.

I've had homebrew for close to a year now, playing all those old ROMs is amazing and so nostalgic. I mean, I've used the computer for it before but it is so much better this way.

Biohazard Darkside Chronicles HP update.
Operation Javier added, basically the story how Leon and Jack tackles the biohazard outbreak in South America. Check the movies section, look for prologue 2, the last section of the PV show some new footage of the new South America levels, which looks like RE5 recycled, but then again RE5 looks like RE4 recycled...

I tried some video that required Flash 8 or higher and surpassingly enough, when trying to play the video, a message shown up that it was out of memory and that the page disappeared. This is may be because the system doesn't come with alot of memory, but it should be able to play a simple video...

With the Playstation 3 which have Flash 9 support, I can play the video without any problem, although the browser isn't as great as the Wii. The main problem is, you can't just view any website since the Wii only came with 88MB of memory which is low in today's standards.

When I got that message with another Flash movie, I zoomed out to 100% and reloaded the page. Worked fine after that.

Oh wow, I don't know where you got your information from.

The wii's browser currently supports up to date flash.

And the Wii internal memory is 512mb not 88, I don't know where you got your numbers from. Also now you can expand the memory with an SD card with the up to date firmware update. So the Wii's storage memory can be as big as an SD card you put in it.

I think he means RAM memory.

If thats the case, than its 88MiB not 88MB, 1MiB > 1MB.

MiB processes information differently than MB.

Not 100% sure, but can the internet channel actually access both RAM pools?
