Wonderful video of a girl dressed as Link wandering around some absolutely gorgeous locations playing various bits of the Legend of Zelda music on her violin. A lot better than you might expect. Check it out.

Also, Link raps about Legend of Zelda and has a rap battle with Ganondorf.

Basicly what the subject says...the wii remote cursor is not showing up. I use a recharging system and I'm making sure it's fully charged, the sensor bar is set where it should be, and everything else is working fine. It recognizes when I press buttons on the wii remote (the + and - flips goes to the next page on the channels screen, and the home button brings up that menu screen). But the little hand is nowhere to be seen. I have tried all matter of positions in the living room to find a 'sweet spot' but the cursor never shows up. I have tried moving the remote all around to see if will select anything even if the cursor isn't visible, but no dice.
Anybody come across this before? Do I need to just suck it up and buy a new wii remote? or just new rechargable batteries? or am I completly wrong and it's a problem with my sensor bar?
(I did just read on the nintendo website a few things to try to get the remote to function again, I'm going to try some and will update this post if something fixes the problem.)

Brink- $19.99 (normally $39.99)

This is the cheapest this game has ever been on Amazon. I've been playing it non-stop for the past month. I wish I would have gotten it for this cheap.

Okay two bits (see heading above).

First of all, finally saw a 3DS working today. I saw a signpost outside my local GAME store asking for people to pre-order and decided to ask a salesman about the possibility of seeing a machine in action when the machine was released. I wasn't too hopeful, so you can imagine my surprise when the guy turned out to have one IN HIS POCKET!!!!

Blooming eck.

More about my first impression of the 3DS...Collapse )

Meanwhile, I want to clear up something about Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. I was told that it wasn't very scary because the bits where you run from pan-dimensional monsters are easy to see coming and you regain all health once they are over.

My thoughts here...Collapse )

de Blob 2

Isaac the giant goof

Is anyone else excited about this game? I know the first one may have gotten some flack, but I found it really enjoyable and a lot of fun. It was creative and entertaining. Hopefully the problems with the first one (the lack of save points within the level for one and the fact that it didn't save your painting so you could go back and finish a level for two). I've been looking forward to this sequel since I beat the first one.. Not sure I'm keen on the A button jump instead of the wrist-flicking, but we'll have to see.

For anyone interested, it comes out on 2/22.

Hi. I'm not a Wii owner yet, though I may be one soon, so please excuse me if there's something obvious that I'm ignorant about.

I currently live in Japan, but I may be returning to the U.S. in a few months. If I do, I'm thinking about bringing back a Japanese system with me so I can play Karaoke Joysound Wii. From what I understand, to access the full library of songs, you pay with Wii points, and then the songs stream via internet. I know that I would need to use Japanese points, but my question is: will the songs stream even though my internet connection is not originating from Japan, or is internetting also region-locked? If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

My Wii has been making loud buzzing noises as of late. At first I thought it was because I brought it to Korea and am using a 220v power cord on an American system, but after doing some investigating I found that this was a common problem for launch and near launch Wiis.

Here is an example of my Wii:

Nintendo said they'll fix it for $75, but I have no way of shipping it to them since I live in Korea. I still want to play my Wii while I'm out here and wonder if the buzzing will have any affect on the actual system. I checked my Wii games and all of them are fine, and I get no error messages on my console. But I want to know if my playing my Wii in that state will just kill it, or if it doesn't make a difference.
