  1. OK, it's now up in the Staff Group.

    Shame we couldn't get any decent images for this stuff. :hmm:

    I'll get the Sprout interview GFX done next, any specific image you want for that one?

  2. Yep, I have. Shame you didn't get back to me sooner... :hmm:

    Have you seen what I'm playing at the moment? ;)


    So yeah... Sorry amigo, but I'm not gonna be able to help you out for a while.

    Right now (and for the next couple of months at least) any free time = game time.


    : peace:

  3. Nope. :heh:


    *Arnie voice* He'll be back...

  4. Sure thing. :)

    Will add you to my game later on too! : peace:

  5. Excellent. icon14.gif


    I look forward to receiving more Wii Music Vids from you in the future then. :smile:

    Got one from / nando / the other day, so he's still playing too. Us three should do a collaborative song sometime, 2 parts each. :hehe: What do you reckon?

  6. ExciteAni.gif


    Just in case you forgot. ;)

  7. Hey, darksnowman. You back from your gaming/N-E hiatus? :hehe:

    Think there's a QR code in the Mii sharing thread. :blank:

    BTW, have you got a Wii U?

  8. Yeah, Balance Board drumming is the only way to go. It can take quite some time to master, but it's so satisfying when you do. If you can pass all of the lessons though, you'll be more than ready to put together some good beats. :smile:


    It always makes me laugh actually when I think about how so many people shrugged off Wii Music as being overly casual, yet obtaining gold crowns on all of the drumming lessons is without doubt one of the most difficult things to achieve in any Wii game. I'd love to lock all of those "hardcore gamers" in a room and say "right, you can't leave here until you either fully complete all drumming lessons, or you admit that Wii Music is awesome". I guarantee around 99% of them would have a change of heart. :laughing:


    By the way, these are great rechargeable batteries to use for the Balance Board. Quite pricey, but they last for ages. And they don't discharge very much at all when not in use.

  9. Would like to, but I don't have the ability to record anymore. :weep:


    Oh well, at least I was able to get this beautiful moment captured forever:




  10. I wouldn't be surprised if people are cheating, to try and speed up the space walk. :hehe:

    My best ever day was around 21,000 steps, so there you go, another little challenge for you. :heh:


    By the way, did you try putting the AM on your cat yet? :grin:

  11. Nice one! Thanks. icon14.gif

    If it is around though, can you try to find out about the region locking thing we were discussing in the game thread? That's what I'd most like to know about, after the release date, obviously. ;)


    Anyway, have a great time mate. :smile:

  12. *voice of Pit*

    "Sorry to keep you waiting!" :heh:




    : peace:

  13. Hey man, I also bought Monster Hunter today! :hehe:


    Hope we can play online sometime.

    : peace:

  14. Guess what? I'm finally a Monster Hunter! :D


    How many hours did you clock on this in the end then, or are you still playing!?

  15. That is a fantastic picture! :bowdown:

    I love the expression on your cat's face. :laughing:


    Not sure about the online for Walk With Me being down or not, it was fine on Sunday though, which is the last time I connected to it (I only go on WWM once a week these days). There have been some WFC problems recently for Jam With The Band and supposedly a few other games too though. :hmm:


    As for Wii Music, getting the bass to match up with the drums (or any of the parts to play well together for that matter) can be tricky. So yeah, I just continually overdub parts until I get 'em to sound right, a good tip though is to slow the tempo down, that can be quite helpful for keeping a good rhythm sometimes.

    Check out these tutorial vids by Kazumi Totaka:


    : peace:

  16. Thanks for the heads up. :smile:

    Have already been enjoying that art.


    And yeah, a WarioWare: D.I.Y. sig is on the way too. ;)

  17. 600 hours, wow! that's an impressive amount of play-time, you certainly got your money's worth there. icon14.gif My most played Wii game is still Mario Kart, at around 370 hours.


    I was planing to get MH at launch, but then NOE's fantastic release scheduling came along and messed with the plan. :indeed:


    Anyway, darksnowman and / nando / both picked this up yesterday (and flameboy is after a copy), so at least I wont be hunting alone. But yeah, if you ever fancy coming out of retirement give us a shout.


    : peace:

  18. Hehehe, yeah that was a fun match. Isn't it time for Mr. modesty to retire? :heh:


    And how dare you post that on my lovely profile page?! I edited that atrocity right out. :D

  19. Congrats. :hehe:

    Yeah, levelling up in GoldenEye takes a loooooong time. :eek:

  20. I guess it'll all depend on how many people buy the game, don't think Nintendo are going to do their own puzzle packs this time though. :hmm: By the looks of things they will only be sending out packs that feature user created puzzles, selected from differently themed Picross 3D competitions.

    Probably for the best that they leave it up to us, the players. More chance of it getting done that way. :heh:


    I still really enjoyed Picross DS, despite Nintendo's laziness on the DLC front. And Picross 3D looks great, so I'm sure it'll be lots of fun anyway.

  21. Ah good stuff, cheers for that.

    Looks like we'll get the best of both worlds then. :)

  22. Hey, Glen-i.

    Sure thing, I can sort that out for ya. :)

    Will PM you.

    : peace:

  23. Thanks. :)

    Smoothie Time is the microgame that I'm most proud of, everything worked out really well on that one.

    I've not had much time to make any new games recently, but I really love WW: D.I.Y, so some new stuff will definitely appear in my storage crate eventually.

    : peace:

  24. I see that you've sent me a new Wii Music vid, cheers. :)

    Unfortunately I won't be able to check it out just yet, as my Wii is currently suffering from some major problems with the disc drive. :(


    I'm waiting for a lens cleaning kit that I ordered to arrive, going to give that a try when it shows up and see if it fixes the problem. But I get the feeling I'll end up having to send it off to Nintendo anyway. :hmm:


    So yeah, at the moment it's only non-disc based Wii stuff for me.

    Downloaded Art Style: light trax earlier on. I pretty much forgot the Wii Shop Channel existed. :heh:

  25. Hey did you know that GAME are selling Black Wii's for £99.98!? :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:


    By the way, are you still playing MH, amigo? I've been getting back into it recently, playing online with Mokong and some of the other pros. You up for hunting online again sometime?


    : peace:
