Wii Sensor Bar Replacement

Thursday, November 30, 2006
This guy used two candles to make a sensor bar that effectively worked with the Wiimote. The reason this works and more is found in the movie's description, and in an article below this one on BDCGamer.

New Wii Sport!

Tuesday, November 28, 2006
Now that we all have Wiis, well most of us, we must begin to look at how we will be playing soon. After failures like Red Steel, a new product is necessary. The "second-wave" of new releases that come out soon after the launch. Wii Sports: Airplane is just one of the brilliant planned games. Take a look, it looks like we aren't done with Wii Sports just yet.
Missing from this are games like Wii Sports: Jet Ski are not yet shown to be included in the title, which is a shame.

Picture of Wii Sensor Bar IR lights

Curious as to how the Wii controller talks to the Wii? Thought the sensor bar took in all the data? You might be surprised to find out that the sensor bar doesn't receive data at all! The sensor bar actually sends out data. Well, not data exactly but infrared light. That light is then picked up the Wiimote which used that light to calculate how far away and in which direction the Wiimote is facing.

You can't see infrared light with the human eye because of the wavelength the light is at. Cameras can pick up this wavelength though. Check out the picture above to see the light as it is sent out of the sensor bar. Pretty neat, isn't it?

Grand Theft Mario

This has some language, and some adult themes. Nothing that bad, though. If you can watch Adult Swim, then you can watch this. It is pretty funny. It's a scene from 'Robot Chicken.' Mario and Luigi go to Vice City, and Yoshi goes to Raccoon City.

Rumor Killed...Zelda to only feature one player.

Sunday, November 05, 2006

A lot of people around the internet have been up in arms about a recent rumor that the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would feature a unannounced multi-player mode.

While we hate to be the bad news blog, we can officially denounce that rumor thanks to a recent posting on the Japanese site for Twilight Princess.

We took a screen shot of the Japanese info page for the game. As you can see toward the bottom of the page we have the number one followed by what looks like an upside down Y. The upside down Y is actually the Japanese character for person or people. Thus, the site clearly states the game will only support one player.

While we hate to break the news, I can actually say that I am quite surprised Nintendo didn't throw in a "Tingle" mode similar to what was in Wind Waker if you plugged a GBA into the GCN with a link cable. It seems like the perfect opportunity to show off some DS-Wii connectivity.

Zelda Twilight Princess Trailer and Game Intro!

This movie was originally alerted to me by PantBurner, but I found this site with info about it, and an added bonus: the intro for the game. See Hylia in all its glory. It actually didn't wow me, the intro that is. I thought the ground could have been more realistic.

WWE Hulk Hogan VS Randy Macho Man Savage Dance-off!

It doesn't get much more manly than Hulk Hogan and Macho Man swing dance competitions, Vince McMahon is really missing out. Watch as Hogan painfully swings his way in and out of the ring with his completely heterosexual partner Randy Savage. I don't agree with the winner though, I think equal amounts of WTF were had from both sides.
