  1. UK Wii Tour - Details FINALLY!

    Hidden? I don't think so. It's cool though, quite basic but fun for a while. I dunno how long it'd last at being fun, given that I only played for about 5 minutes. Gotta agree with hiyaz, the girl there was pretty hot.
  2. Wiinjuries

    Kind of funny link, until the cancer one, I find that highly offensive. Jk, pretty nice thread, I don't see a problem with wearing the strap though, I barely noticed it, and I KNOW that at some point I'm gonna get carried away and fling my control out of my hand, I'd rather it fell limp or possibly broke my wrist than fly out of my hand and break itself. My wrist'll fix itself for free, a controller's gonna cost me £30!
  3. To drink or not to drink?

    Whoever's knocking underage drinking, assuming somebody is because I didn't read everything properly, don't knock it. I had some of the best times drinking underage, it was much more interesting than just sitting down in a pub and drinking with your mates. Whoever buys coke and has a problem with the price, try getting a pint of coke instead, in wetherspoons it's only like 10 or 20p more, and about twice as much! I say that, but I haven't had to ask for a coke in a wetherspoons for about a year.
  4. UK Wii Tour - Details FINALLY!

    I played the Wii today in bluewater, both Wii play and WiiSports. On Play, I played the horse racing one(twice) which was great, the hockey one which I found a bit tricky to control because the wiimote seems very sensitive, and some weird thing where you have to match 2 miis out of a crowd. I didn't play duckhunt, but Colin has pretty much summed up what I thought of hockey and the horse game. The spot the mii thing was basic, so I won't really comment on it, it's basically just a competative pairs game(think of that minigame in sm64ds where you have to find the character in the crowd, think 2 of the same character in a crowd of many more other characters, kinda). It was still fun, although we got stumped in the 3rd game because we couldn't find the matches on some escalators. Anyway, I played WiiSports Tennis too before I played WiiPlay, which I thought was actually pretty good(I think I won 2/3 games, then me and the random guy I was playing with got kicked off). I liked tennis, and it even got me working up a sweat(because I was wearing about 12 layers of clothes and a scarf), but it was pretty fun, I love the way the characters jump about and stuff, at one point the other guy even ended up jumping one of his people into the crowd for the ball! The wiimote itself is much smaller than I reckoned, as is the console, and the sensor bar, and the wiimote has little bits of rumble too, although it felt quite mild. Whilst I didn't hear it myself, the guy I was playing with pointed out to me after that there was sound in the speaker on the serve, which is a nice touch. The reason I think the horse game and tennis felt so good however, is because they were easier to control as they didn't rely on the IR of the wiimote, whereas hockey seemed to, and so when I tried to rotate my paddle I'd end up tilting my wiimote up or down causing my paddle to fly all over the place as I try to sort it out, often knocking the ball into my own goal. I wouldn't say I played enough to make a firm judgement that 'the wii pointer craps everything up' though. I am pretty impressed with things though, and I'm gonna go back tomorrow with Marcamillian to play some more. As for graphics, they seemed quite good to me, although I'm pretty sure those were HDTVs and I don't know how they were hooked up, but I'd assume it was using the best possible. I say the graphics seemed good, they didn't look particularly challenging to render, the miis themselves look really cute in the game too, when they run around and move and stuff.
  5. This here is a thread for pictures, pictures which I have no doubt a number of you are acquainted with. I'm talking about none other than...CAT CAPTION PICTURES! I love them alot, and am on a mission to scour the internet for all of them, so post here any ones you have, or sites you know of that have a collection of them for all to see and enjoy. Hell, if you've got a cat and a camera then maybe even think about making your own! If this thread should be in the Creativity forum, please move it along to there, I wasn't sure whether to put it here or there(as it isnt our own creations). I shall start the ball rolling with a few of my favourtites. I found some more on some forums once, but I seem to have lost the link to it, expect it to arrive sometime around this weekend probably, when I have more time. Oh yeah, and this one, it's more cute than funny though.
  6. To drink or not to drink?

    Do what you like, it is apparently possible to have fun without drinking, so give it a go and see. If I ever have a choice though, Im drinking. If you'd rather drink at home, why not buy a bottle of something or a box of beers and suggest it? As for the venue, despite my uni being right across the road from it, I've never actually been.
  7. UK Wii Tour - Details FINALLY!

    I'n gonna be in bluewater tomorrow from 2ish I reckon, cos I get out of uni at 12(sposed to stay until 3ish, but i wanna play wii so im gonna skip my tutorial and get a slap on the wrist for missing it). Looks like I'll be there by myself, but I'll probably pop into GAME to see the old workmates. If you see me, feel free to say hello, I look pretty much like my avatar, despite that being about 2 years ago now. Does anyone know any sort of times for it, like when it starts and ends, and where it'll be? I imagine it'll be by M&S, as that's near both the GAMEs too, and it tends to be host to random display stuff.
  8. I saw the forum description, and that question caught my eye, I decided to step on in and see if it was actually explained, but it isn't. So I'm curious, what exactly is the difference between the two? As far as I'm aware, they both have the exact same capacity, it's something I never really understood.
  9. Photoshop Reggie

    Better Che one from that NG thread.
  10. Does anybody watch E4?

    It don't see it often, but I saw it last night after Stop Treating Me Like a Kid, right after the credits had finished.
  11. Nintendo Advent Calendar

    I get the feeling this thread is not actually about advent calendars of the chocolate kind, but I shall talk about such anyway! I would really love a proper nintendo advent calender with little nintendo related chocolates in it, made from advent calandar kind of chocolate(theres something magical in that chocolate). That is all.
  12. What the hell is this thing?

    Hey man! Pass me some more of that d-pad shit! *sssnniiifffffff* I never even saw one of those interact superpads before, but my sister DID buy an interact memory card in poundland once(and they have yet to appear again, if it wasn't at all like her, i'd be inclined to believe she got it elsewhere then lied to me), that memory card was pretty darn good, still works today and has all my saves! I also think that whilst the original photos posted do look a bit ugly, that is absolutely no bearing on how they would feel and play, consider your first ideas of tee n64 pad.
  13. Age

    Is anyone actually going to average out all these ages? I make this post in the hope that they will, for I am 19.5ish.
  14. Your Wii, When, where and how?

    If my local store is having a midnight opening, then I'll go to that, but I don't think they are. If they aren't I'm getting up early then getting ready for uni, going to GAME, buying the wii, bringing it home and leaving it in the box, then going to uni for a few hours.
  15. books

    gggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkssss. Just kidding. I read from time to time, normally fiction stuff like Discworld and Harry Potter, and Marvel comics. I'm reading Spider-Girl graphics novels at the moment though, which are better than I expected. For anyone looking for a good read, I would recommend HDM trilogy(Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass) by Phillip Pullman, possibly my favourite story ever.
  16. Does slowaga actually exist?! :p Just while we're on the subject, for Brawl, are all 3 controllers compatible? I think they should have made it possible to use all old controllers with the wii(as my mother said just yesterday as I told her how much im spending and why 'controllers?! MORE controllers?! what are you gonna do with all of these ones??', I was tidying up all my game stuff at the time, which has snes, n64 and gc controllers together). Maybe it could have been done through the use of a cable attachment to avoid there being 37 different ports on the wii, like those PS2-PC, XBOX-PC, or PS2-XBOX things(they sell all sorts of them in GAME). Now that I think about it, I might not need to get a VC controller at all, just use my GC one. Another reason I think this is a good idea, means less recharging of my batteries! If I'm correct the VC controller doesn't wire directly into the console, or does it? I saw a picture of it in a display cabinet and it looked alot like it was simply wired to the wiimote, not the console. Speaking of this, can anyone give me a source about the GC pads being able to be used for all VC titles, I posted about it on another forum but have no decent source.
  17. Going Bluewater?

    I hope this is the right forum for this, I think it is anyway. I'm just curious how many people here are going to be going to bluewater next week for the Wii tour, hoping in some sort of way I can figure out how crowded it'll be there. Also, does anyone have some proper times and locations of the tour in Bluewater? I'm most probably going on thursday, and friday too.
  18. Going Bluewater?

    Ok, I was after a more bluewater specific count to try and measure up the numbers, but I'll just give the other topic a read through. A mod can close or delete this whatever.
  19. Wii TV Remotes

    Isn't that gonna get real confusing for you when you have your wii? :p
  20. No Rumble for N64 VC Games!

    I am kinda disappointed to hear this, it was something I hadn't even considered happening. Whilsts theres lots of praise going round for the wii, it's a bit of a shoddy job, ninty really need to get their arses into gear and sort it all out, without charging us lots of extra money.
  21. Gaming Posters!?!

    Try going into a games shop and asking, namely GAME, I think they have marketing on wednesday so they change all their posters then, go in early on a thursday morning. Other than that I'd suggest gaming magazines, I used to have some cool posters I got in NOM(the one shorty mentioned, plus one of him fighting volvagia, and all the posters had another on the other side), but I dunno what happened to them now. I have einstein riding a bike on my wall instead, what a dude.
  22. Calling any American/Canadians/Related

    I thought the british jolly ranchers tasted nicer than the american ones, but I never really liked either too much anyway, the green ones tasted kinda funny.
  23. Wii

    What are the chances of SD cards going up when the wii comes out? I imagine they're kind of slim given that alot of stuff use them already, but I'm also thinking it's still possible they might go up. I've seen play.com have a 1gig maxell one for like £15, but I'm also weary about any compatibility issues. Are there any known issues about SD cards with Wiis? Like will only certain ones work or anything, I don't imagine theres been much chance for it to be tested by people yet. I just don't wanna buy an SD card then find out I can't use it, because I have nothing else that uses them.
  24. OMFG! Norwegian Wii prices.

    This is unbelievable, I was outraged enough by the british prices, but now I feel silly, it isn't simply just the tax pushing it up, somebody clearly thought they'd capitalise the higher tax and push the price up more. Nintendo really treat people like crap outside of america and japan, seriously. (In something completely unrelated, I think I have this AdrianDX fellow on my msn, what a small world)
  25. Turns out the letter thing DID come, but it was in my sisters name as the reward card is still registered in her name, being the idiot she is she didnt think to tell or ask anyone about it. I feel more at ease now, I'll probably go down on the 10th to see what this pack is all about. The small print on 'Your preorder was successful! You will get your hands on a Nintendo Wii at launch*' says; '*GAME cannot be held responsible for chanes in stock delivery dates or launch date however, you are guaranteed to recieve a Nintendo Wii from our launch deliveries' Which to me implies to me I'll have one on launch! w00ties! I dunno what the little Wii Gift Card is all about though, seems like a regular gift card to me, which I don't think you earn store points on, so I won't be using it. Samdecahedron, try going down to your store with your pre-order reciept on the 10th to see if they will let you have one. I think they only sent these little info packs out to reward card holders because otherwise they don't have complete postal details. To any reward card holders who haven't recieved a letter, it might be worth making sure your reward card address details are correct, sometimes they aren't put into the system correctly.
