Huge Wii News!!!

Do you want to find out how many Wii's will be coming to your local Wal Mart? Well apparently now you can. According to the story below you can now print up a bar code and scan the code at your local Wal Mart and the scanner will tell you how many of the system that they will be getting. Here is the story:

This just popped up at digg. Someone had the glorious idea to find the UPC barcodes for the Sony PS3 and the Nintendo Wii. You can print out the code and try to have a Wal-mart employee scan it for you at your local store. The Wal-mart inventory system should then tell how many Sony PS3 consoles (story on digg) or Nintendo Wii (story on digg) consoles the store gets.

There are some comments in the discussion thread that confirm that this works, but it is actually against store policy to reveal that information to a customer. You need possibly do some social hacking.

If someone does this, please let me know if it works! Huge props to the Yellow Dart for the info.

Don't forget our 3rd podcast!



Rayman Preview

As we approach the launch of Nintendo forthcoming console Wii, reader Mitch was nice enough to write up a preview of one of the many launch titles; Rayman Raving Rabbids. Huge props to Mitch for the post and I hope you enjoy!:

Proper Wii Kiosk Etiquette

We all know in just a matter of weeks we will be playing Wii in our very own living rooms. Good times are for sure to ensue, but what about before the Wii makes its official debut. How should we play a Wii kiosk demo unit in stores? Well gamers, we have it all figured out. Simply follow the rules below and you should be well on your way to playing the Wii kiosk unit the way you were meant to:

Rules for Wii Kiosk Units:
1). Have fun!! Simple rule to start things off but Nintendo Wii is going to be a fun and entertaining system; be sure to have tons of fun.
2). Watch out for flailing body parts!! People are for sure going to get into the Wii games so be sure to give yourself a healthy distance between you and the player. A good 5 feet is recommended but 3.5 feet is also acceptable.
3). Don't get knocked out. This rule goes hand in hand with rule #2, but to save yourself the embarrassment (and much needed Wii playing time) DO NOT GET KNOCKED OUT! Instead, if Bobby swing wiimote decides to come at you like it's his job, do a matrix style move and steer clear. Your time will come my young Jedi.
4). Eat a lot of sugar to get your system up and running for the fun that is about to happen.
5). Do not bring your significant other to the event! You are going to want to spend quality time with your new found love and your "other half" may ruin that with a undeniable sale down the road or in the store.
6). Wait patiently.....You'll get your chance to play.
7). Line wrapping- it may be best to shape the line in such a way to create a "pocket" around the current player to protect them from flying fits of rage from disappointed Playstation 3 players who were unable to purchase their system of choice.
8). Game ON!

New Dragon Quest Swords Screen

Check out brand new scans for the Nintendo Wii title Dragon Quest Swords. What I noticed immediately was that the graphics are looking more realistic this time around.

One Wii Little Secret Left?

Huge props to Metaldave for this news story!!! Below is a quote taken from a recent Q and A with Gamepro magazine. It seems as though our Wii may be hiding one more secret.....

Q I recently went into a GameStop store to see if they had a Wii Kiosk and pick up the new Splinter Cell. While I was in there, I began to discuss the Wii system with the manager of the store. He explained Nintendo recently held a GameStop Managers kind of meet and greet for the Wii, with Reggie present. He also said Reggie announced their is still one more big secret left on the Wii, which will be revealed around launch. I called another store and the manager there said Reggie did in fact say such a thing. My question is have you heard any of this? Do you have any speculation as to what it may be? I have heard it is potentially a graphics solution or a camera attachment.

A: Wow, you're up on your stuff. I can confirm that there was a GameStop retreat and Reggie did in fact say there will be another big Wii revelation around launch time.

My Thoughts:
Online. I personally think that the big secret will have something to do with their online component of the Nintendo Wii. The online part of Wii still remains much of a mystery and seems to be a logical choice for the "secret".

My next guess: a new game has been in development for Wii and will be a HUGE surprise for gamers everywhere. Couple this with the recent rumors of Sega having a Wii title in development and we may have our secret. Let the speculation resume. As always I will be following this as it unfolds so keep it here. Game ON!

Wii Channel Update!

This just in: It appears as though CNN will be feeding the Wii news channel. Edge Magazine have announced that CNN has signed up with Nintendo as the provider of news content on the Wii News Channel in American and Japan. I could definitely see parents and kids alike making great use of the channel and in my opinion will give Nintendo a great hand in the next generation console wars. Wii will be launch in a could of weeks so stay tuned gamers. Wii are almost there.

Wii Kiosk Information

If you are like myself, I am counting the days until I can actually get my hands on Nintendo's amazing Wii. The million dollar question that is on everyone's mind is when will kiosks start to pop up in stores?!?!

Gamers- I may have that answer. I am never one to say "I told you so," but keep in mind I was one the first to report when Gamestop would be taking their preorders for Wii. It seems like all signs are pointing to as early as next week on the Wii kiosk radar system! Some stores will probably be receiving their kiosks in the very near future and late next week may be the magic time. This makes perfect sense due to the fact that the Wii launches in a mere 23 days. As always, I will keep you updated when more information becomes available. Stay tuned my young Jedi's....Our wait is almost over.

Dantendo is Back!

Hello gamers, good news: Dantendo is back with a great review of the recently released Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime. Below is the full review. Huge props again for Dantendo.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime
Released: September 20th, 2006
Developer: Square Enix

Well, if my review needed to be in one word, that would be "wow." Luckily, I can use more than one word. So "HOLY F@#% THIS GAME IS GREAT" sounds better. Here's why:

Graphics: Did you like LOZ: The Minish Cap? You should have, partly because the graphics were amazing, and Dragon Quest's visuals are very similar to Minish Cap. Somehow that simple design technique really goes a long way. All of the games wacky worlds are drawn up to perfection. Not that anyone should linger on a game's graphics, but I figured I should point this out.

Story: This is where Rocket Slime really captivated me. Anyone who is familiar with the Mario and Luigi series would understand what I'm talking about when I say the story is cleverly plotted out. There's a perfect blend of "oh my god the world is going to end" mixed in with tons of dragon quest humor. The only minor drawback to a story like this is that you won't get as much out of the story and the humor without having at least some prior Dragon Quest knowledge. Don't worry though, the story is simple and quite enjoyable no matter your prior knowledge.

Gameplay: Holy crap this game has a lot of guts. By that I mean you will spend countless hours collecting monsters, ammunition, and battling in tournaments. When you're done with that, you can give the hero's well a shot if you're feeling up to a challenge. I personally spent about 15-16 hours on the game, but that doesn't include the sidequests, so I hope you have some time on your hands.

Replay Value: You'll probably only play the story once, but you'll enjoy the sidequests enough to spend the extra time doing them. All in all I'd say there's low to moderate replay on this game. Only true hardcore fans will find themselves beating this game time and time again.

Overall: For the most part, this game has been rating pretty well (in the 8-9 range in most magazines) however, I feel that it's being underrated by just a bit. I personally would say it's closer to the 9-9.5 range. Games like this are the reason why the Nintendo DS is the clear handheld ruler, outselling the PSP by about 4 to 1. So go buy it now!


New Rayman Screens and Artwork

Here are some new Rayman screens and artwork from the game. November 19th is coming up!



Huge Toys R Us Wii Advertisement

Finally some advertising for Wii. It can't get any bigger than times square! What a great advertisement. I cannot wait to see the television commercials when they roll out for the Wii. Less then a month away gamers! Game ON.
