  1. Excitebike




    Assist Trophies are trophies that come to the aid of the player that called them out.


    But these may not always be solid objects...




    Th-they’re pixel art!




    And there are tons of pixels racing around!


    I think that in Smash though, appearances are rarely what they seem.




    Just because they’re flat doesn’t mean you can

    take them lightly.


    By the way, there’s also an Assist Trophy for this guy...




    Lakitu and Spinies! He just tosses ‘em down,

    one after the other.

  2. I just completed the main quest. Quite a nice ending. Time clocked in at 19:28. It that seems long then that's because I usually end up just wondering around for time. I have by no means seen much of the game. I have the Pit of 100 trials to do, I haven't even see the arcade that you have been talking of. then there recipe's and cards to collect.

  3. The Enemies From Subspace


    The enemies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The Subspace Emissary are called the Subspace Army!


    Right now, I’d like to introduce some of the more powerful ones.






    This enemy looks like a motorised unicycle. These guys ride around in groups, and are both fast and powerful.






    Their bucket trousers are filled with presents and sweets. If you approach these cowards, they’ll flee.






    Leave these enemies be and they’ll multiply in a flash. Destroy them before they become too much trouble!






    This creature will use its trowel-like arms to lift characters up and fly off with them.






    This unpleasant, fog-like enemy has a weak spot at the core of its chest!






    This bird dives from above, piercing the ground. You can pull out any Auroros that sticks itself into the ground.






    It’s HUGE! It attacks by swinging two sickles down upon you. Its red head is its weak spot.


    The R.O.B. Squad




    The escort the Ancient Minister brings with him is an R.O.B squad?! There are some that fire beams and others that fire missiles.


    There are other enemies that will appear and try to impede your progress. Good luck! Don’t lose! And don’t run away!

  4. i bought this game earlier today (£25 from toys 'r' us) just finished Chapter 2, and loving it.


    This may not be a real spoiler, but I'll put it in a spoiler either way.

    I think it was this one, the one were you have to pay back 1,000,000 rubees. In the main room, there is a clock, Look at it when you play it, it actually shows the time that your Wii is set to, and keeps real time. Lovely touch.


  5. Pitfall



    This item appeared in the game Animal Crossing. Bury it in the ground and it becomes a trap. If you love playing tricks on others, this item can’t be beat.




    When you throw a Pitfall at the ground...




    It vanishes!




    When someone touches it, PLUNK!


    Now’s your chance. You can’t help but grin.


    Incidentally, it also has an effect if you simply hit someone with it instead of setting it in the ground.




    If you get hit by a Pitfall, you’ll drop through pass-through floors!


    Getting thoroughly fooled by a trap like this... It’s pretty humiliating.



    I actually was talking about this on an animal Crossing site with some members there. Cool update.

  6. Anyone have any tips on beating Diddy "Freaking" Kong in the Crystal Cup Final. I can get there, winning both the Golden Boot and the Brick wall no trouble, but as soon as I face up against Diddy he just keeps knocking the goals in. The best I have done is 2-1 losses winning the second game.

    I use Bowser as Captain, along with Koopa, Dry Bones and Hammer Bros.

  7. I didnt know.


    Still not sure whether I should get this. Is it better than Wii golf as I hated that.


    I would say yes, this is a lot better than WiiGolf. this has a lot more depth. More courses, more club choice, and after a while, I am finding that swinging is much better in Pangya. Basically this is a full golf game, were as WiiGolf was a 'demo' so to speak.

  8. Since Raw was going to be starting at 1am here in the UK due o the "Vince Memorial" I decided to stay up and watch a little. I was shocked and saddened when the graphic came up of Beniot. When the show started and all you saw was Vince in the empty arena, I knew that it was something terrible.


    Benoit was one of the few truly great wrestlers left, I always enjoyed watching his matches. I got to see him wrestle at live events over here, and seeing him jump off that top rope is something that is amazing to see.

    One of my favourites was between Chris and William Regal at the last Cyber Sunday (I think). I have the rest of RAW to watch later, but I just know that it is going to be a hard thing to watch.


    RIP Chris. :cry: :cry:

  9. I'm really getting the hang of this now. I can use the swing option to much better effect than when I first started playing.


    I just completed a round of the second course, shining sand, in stroke play finishing a respectable +5


    this game really gives me a workout, I admit to not being in shape, but this game gets me going.

  10. I picked this up yesterday. So far I have found the swinging to be a little awkward, maybe I'm just used to WiiGolfs style. I am getting better, and can now hit straight with a Pangya.

    i really don't like putting via swing though. It's not natural to swing like you swing the rest of the clubs.

  11. I'm pretty sure you have to have it on standby in order to use Connect24. It's always been like that, and the console is designed to be left in standby. Don't worry about it.


    Thanks for that, although I just checked the manual, there are two ways to use WiiConnect24. You can have it always on, (orange light) or just active when your console is on (red light). I want mine set up to be active only when my Wii is on, but for WiiConnect to work, I need to set both WiiConnect24 and Standby mode to be on. I just want WiiConnect to be on, but if I turn Standy Mode off, then I can't get any WiiConnect to work.


    OK, after checking the Nintendo site, it seems you need both set to on, for the Weather/News channel to work. thanks anyway.

    Nintendo customer service page.

  12. I have a strange problem, it's not major, but it will bug me later on.


    My WiiConnect24 won't work when I turn off the Standby setting in the Wii menu. the only way it will work is to have WiiConnect24 on and standby mode on. This means having it on the orange light on instead of having it just go into standby (red) It's not major, but it means either leaving standby mode on, or changing it every time I want to use a WiiConnect24 feature.

    Any suggestions?

    i have tried turning it off, unplugging the console, but it only works if standby is on.

  13. Picked this up yesterday, so far I have only done the tutorials and first level, but so far I like it. I have to delve deeper before I can really get an opinion, but I think this is going to be a good game.

  14. I'm going to be buying this. I liked the look of the game when I first saw it, and it seems like the kind of game that I can just pick up and play in short bursts.

  15. WooHoo, I just S-Ranked all the Mirror mode. I still have the challenges to do, so this games has certainly lasted me longer than those few hours that some reviewers said.


    To those people that have managed to pull of spins above 2520. Where are you doing this and with what car?

    I just can't pull off more than a 2520.

  16. I unlocked Mirror Mode yesterday. I have to say, I didn't find S-Ranking the Super Excite tracks that hard. I had a few that took me more than 10 attempts, but then I just focused on doing enough stunts to earn the points, and I managed them all that way. Now onto Mirror mode.


    One of the thing I wish this game had was a true Time Trial mode.

  17. I realised I've posted a few vids, but not given any thoughts on the game, well here are a few. I love it. I never read any reviews for this, and I wanted it from the time I got my Wii.


    This is easily my favourite pick up and play game on the Wii so far, but it also stands up to longer play time, (up to a few hours at a time). So far I have completed Excite mode with all S-ranks, and S-ranks in bronze on Super Excite. I have completed Super Excite mode (non S-rank).


    I have obtained all the paint jobs on all the trucks, and as such got a nice surprise.


    I pulled off a lovely 2520 spin earlier, (I know it has been done before me though) (video coming soon.)


    I am not disappointed one bit in this purchase.


    Here it is, my own

    . This contains the surprise I mentioned earlier.

  18. I've uploaded my video of the 2160 spin onto youtube. It's just processing but I'll post the link here now.



    I know it's poor quality, but all I have to record is a digital camera that has a video option.
