What Wii Fit Doesn't Tell You

It's been a while since I purchased Wii Fit and while I know most have given it up, I've now spent a total of 41 hours on it before the included "Panasonic Industrial Alkaline" batteries ran out. This was spread out over a period of 2 months while keeping up my own morning jog. Pretty much given up on all the other stuff such as yoga in Wii Fit...


Persona 4 Review

It's only been a year since Persona 3 FES was released in Japan. Two years for the original Persona 3 game. Now Atlus is back with Persona 4 which follows very much the same gameplay from P3. You play as a high school student who must balance your daily life routine with dungeon exploring as the days pass and the story unfolds. So is P4 the...


Wiiware, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - My Life as a King

Since Nintendo lets players who buy and register their products to swap Star Points for Wii Points now, I finally decided to go download the 1500 points Wii Ware title, "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - My Life as a King". The sim (yes, it's not an RPG!) sounded like a very fun title and with Square-Enix behind its development, I was...


Trauma Centre: Under The Knife 2

It's been three years since GUILT was defeated and now Derek Stiles and Angie Thompson are in Africa, Costigar treating patients in a war-torn country as voluntary doctors. Lacking equipment and staff, Derek soon meets his new trainee named Adel Tulba. Just when they begin settling down they are called back by Caduceus who have...


Super Smash Bros Brawl

Never played any of the previous titles in the series but decided to pick up "Super Smash Bros Brawl" for the Wii because there's been another lack of good titles for the console. I had the game pre-ordered and managed to get this "Limited Edition" sleeve for the game together with a postcard of Zero Suit Samus. Pretty cool considering...


Okami Wii Review

Picked up Okami, a port of the PS2 action game. I heard many good things about this game and since nothing else interesting was coming out for the Wii for some time, I decided to try it out. HMV sells the game with an alternative slip cover over here but, didn't find out about that until after I bought this. The American boxart had a very faded...


Dragon Quest Swords, Wiimote Shaking Fun?

Starting the game up, a festival is running and a mandatory tutorial is given about how to use the Wiimote. Afterwards, it's time to take the "Walk of the Worthy" and go on the very first sword slashing adventure. Each location is presented on a world map and are completely replayable. Graphically, they look fairly good but are...


Wii Fit, A Compelling Package for Basic Exercises

Despite watching the parody trailer and knowing how much it was going to cost, I still went ahead and pre-ordered Wii Fit and managed to slip one in on Amazon before it got pre-sold out. The demand is so high it doesn't look like the price will drop any time soon and it is a first party Nintendo title. Yesterday I received the package which...


Mario Kart Wii, A Smooth Online Experience and Fun New Tricks

Decided to pick up "Mario Kart Wii" while I was waiting for my copy of Wii Fit to arrive. Finding a copy was pretty difficult. About a week after release, there was still plenty of stock in both shops and online stores over here. However, another week later and it was pretty much sold out. Fortunately I just happened to find one store online...
