Nintendo Channel is Up for Europe

The latest free "Nintendo Channel" for the Wii finally makes it to European shores today and it's pretty good. Starting up for the first time, it'll ask if you wish to subscribe to news messages about the latest titles and also if you wish to send your Wii usage data. I chose yes for the first question just to see what the messages look like...


Mario Kart Wii Online Competitions, Where are the Results?

A bit disappointed that the Mario Kart Wii online competitions aren't knock out tournaments. I know it would be hard to get players to "meet up" at a certain time but, they could always let players upload ghost data before a certain time and arrange the knockouts that way. Despite saying that though, the two competitions that's been on...

So it's now possible to play games from other regions thanks to Datel's Freeloader (available from both Code Junkies and Play-Asia) but, there have been reports that a recent mini update from Nintendo has blocked it.

The Real Wii Freeloader Announced, Region Free Finally Here?

There used to be a Freeloader disc available from Datel with the Wii logo which made people think it allowed them to play Wii games from any region on there console when in actual fact, it was only for loading Game Cube games. The disc has been blacklisted by firmware updates now although Nintendo had claimed "it wasn't intentional"......


Everyone's Pokemon Farm, More Free Activities with the Miis

I've already gotten bored of the Mii Contest Channel not long after it came out. It was interesting to see what it was like and what people managed to do with their Miis at first but, I hardly use it now. I use the Everybody Votes Channel more. I don't know... Some of the Miis are impressive considering the limited control you have when...


Wii Fit Balance Board Package Priced for EU?

We know Europe is going to get Wii Fit towards the end of April now but, what about the price? Well according to Eurogamer.net, it's due to be set at at a whopping £69.99 while the European price is €89.99. It's too high for my likings so I hope it's not the final retail price. Look at Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party (which is due next...

No More Heroes Pushed Back to Mid-March for EU

Looks like the Atari shopping site was partly right about the delay for the EU version of No More Heroes. According to MCV, Rising Stars have made an official announcement that the game's being pushed back to the 14th March so that they can "make sure we can supply everyone". Retailers such as Amazon UK and Gameplay have already updated...


European Release Dates for Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii

It's again one of those rare occasions when we Europeans are getting our localised Japanese titles first before NA. This time according to CVG, it looks like Nintendo's Wii Fit will be due out almost a month earlier than NA on April 25th while Mario Kart Wii will be due on April 11th. So it looks like that report about Wii Fit reaching us in...


A Release Date for Will Wright's Next Evolutionary Game, Spore

I've stopped playing PC games since buying myself a DS and Wii because there hasn't been any titles that's caught my attention on it lately. However, here's one I'm looking forward to playing. Will Wright's next game after his big hit "The Sims". Spore - Another great sounding sim where you watch life evolve from bacteria all the way...
