Consoles: Current, previous and Next-Gen mess

I just came across following headline "Xbox 360 to win next-gen console race?" over at GameIndustry.biz and no I'm not writing this to pick on them but it was just the very last case of generation mess I saw. I notice this issue many times before. So it is about Xbox 360 and winning the next generation console race. EXCUSE ME but Xbox 360 is NOT next-gen and don't get me wrong neither is PS3 or Nintendo Wii. They are…

Kids, logic, games and most of all Super Paper Mario

I recently started playing Super Paper Mario on Nintendo Wii and got to say that this game impresses me more than any other game have done for a long time. Sure you should not compare the game to World of Warcraft or Lord of the Rings Online as it is rather... Hmmm... Different. Guess you can only compare it to other Super Mario games but even here it is different and I'm not only talking about the flipping between 2D…

Is this for real? Dolphin guns, half naked chicks, banana stabbing

Of course it is not for real but it is part of the game Ghost Squad. I never considered to check out the game Ghost Squad (For Nintendo Wii, to be released end of November 2007) nor was it my plan until 10 minutes ago where I saw one insane in-game video. This should be from unlocked Paradise Mode. The movie features guns formed as Dolphins, shooting water bubbles, killing with banana (down the throat) and jet skies looking like…

XBox 360 repair time

The Red Ring of Death I finally got around calling Microsoft's XBox 360 the other day. It went very smooth to explain the problem with 'The Red Ring of Death', guess it was not first time for them :-) Just had to mention the problems with the light and the girl at support took over, just one question from her (beyond identifying me) and that was about the light on the power supply. A good friend of mine had already…

I dream… about Pikmin for Nintendo Wii

I just saw this great picture on Nintendo Wii Fanboy and now I know what I really really miss for my Nintendo Wii: Pikmin 3 or Pikmin Wii or whatever they will call it, IF they make it. Right now I don't remember seeing anything from Nintendo that confirms they are doing it.. So I dream... I consider Pikmin for GameCube to be among some of the greatest games ever, sure it helps that I love cute games and that…

Nintendo Wii more than just games.

We heard it many times... Nintendo is about games and XBox 360 and PS3 is about games and media and wants to become the media center of everybody's home. There are no doubts that Nintendo will not be competing on the movie side of things, there is not even DVD playback. I find it great that Nintendo lets Sony and Microsoft do the battle regarding the next-gen disc format. Let the fight happen and then choose the winning format for…

After the honeymoon: the Nintendo Wii

Ars Technica posted an interesting article yesterday on their site. They write about how they feel about the Wii after having it for almost two months. Was it all hype, do they still like the special controls, do they still believe it the Wii.... Part from the article: Just like the PlayStation 3, the Wii's honeymoon is over. Now that we've become accustomed to looking at the same face every morning, is the Wii still fresh and exciting? Most important,…

Nintendo Wii – User Interface

I will in this review give my opinion about the user interface (UI) used with the Nintendo Wii. This is a follow up to my two earlier review posts on Nintendo Wii (review 1 and review 2). The user interface got the same look and feel in all the build-in software, the Channels and in two games. It might be used in more games but so far I have only seen it in Wii Play and Wii Sports. I'm using…

Summary of my Nintendo Wii experience

Some of the feedback I got on my review 'My Experience with Nintendo Wii' was that it was VERY long, which is correct, I got kind of carried away and I didn't even cover all the subjects I wanted to. Other feedback was that it was missing a conclusion. The shortest version would be: Super I will now do a quick summary and finish up with a pro / con for the Nintendo Wii. Will try to keep it short…

My Experience with Nintendo Wii

This is my personal review of the Nintendo Wii; it will be different from most of the other reviews which can be found on many game web sites. I will not give a rating such as 9/10 or anything. Instead it will be about my experience with Nintendo Wii. When I say 'my experience' then I will from time to time include what my kids thinks about it all, since they have different opinions and views on things. I will…
