  1. Are they in the right coloured holes? Magnetic interference? (Sorry that's all I can think of right now)
  2. YES! This is fantastic news, Tim and Chris are very talented designers and come up with some very unique ideas but they've never been able to admit that practically everyone who made Rareware what it was had left to form Free Radical and Zoonami (aside from the grunt programmers and the music composers of course) Hopefully, Chris and Tim will head off to Free Radical to join their old buddies and some how get back together with Zoonami (They haven't made a single game thus far so maybe they'd be willing to team up again) If somehow that were to happen, then it's possible that the Rareware of old may live once again!
  3. That's odd, well REmake doesn't support 480p so that may be a contributor to the jagginess. I assume that you've already turned the sharpness down on your HDTV (since your other Wii games look fine), I know I did! But then again, REmake never had any Anti Aliasing and always suffered from horrible pixilation anyway. It's just that playing it on a HDTV amplifies the issue even more.
  4. The VC review thread

    I finally got some Vc points and I thought I'd try out some games that I'd never played before so I chose ecco the dolphin since it seemed so different to everything else and IGN gave it a fairly decent review... WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT! The game has a distinct homebrew feeling as soon as you start it up, listening to that generic noise Sega call music, and then it hits you. The collision detection is completly broken, although you wouldn`t want to play it even if the collision detection was good thanks to crap gameplay and level design. One of the worst games I`ve ever played, I feel completly gypped. Oh well, SM64, SMB, GH, SCV4 and Wario`s Woods washed out that bad VC taste in my mouth!
  5. Name: I loved it from the start (Was probably the only person to do so as well ) and I love it just as much now. Controller: I thought the controller would be completely awesome and it turned out to be even better than I thought it would be! Mind you though, it guzzles batteries like a hot knife through butter (Got me some 2500 MAH batteries so that little problem is now sorted!)
  6. Wii Connects to Nintendo VIP

    WTF, NOE doing something good for once. IMPOSSIBLE!!! Ugh, still can't do anything with my stars though since my Wii is a US version, oh well, I'm not interested in crappy PAL releases anyway. Hurry up and put Yoshi's Island DS on the Stars Catalogue Ninty!!!
  7. PAL Virtual Console Games Run In 50 HZ

    The funny thing is, that I actually (Jokingly) said the other day that NOE are so stupid that they'd probably make the VC run in 50Hz. Strange how things work out sometimes... (Huggles his US Wii )
  8. There are no words to describe the utter stupidity of this... Thank God I got a US Wii!
  9. Suggest A Thread

    The PAL version virtual console runs all the games in 50hz!!! http://www.pro-g.co.uk/news/06-12-2006-4221.html Someone might want to make a thread on this since I'm certain that this is gonna be a deal breaker for many people waiting on a PAL Wii (Thank God I got a US one!)
  10. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    Hi, my new HDTV and my Wii component cables arrived yesterday and it looks like sex! (My TV is the Samsung LE32R74BDX) I may post some pics later on if I can be bothered but it works great, no scaling lag (even with Game mode turned off!) and PQ even better than RGB Scart on an SDTV! (Everything looks so full and all the colours are nice and inky ) A word to those looking at the Wii on a HDTV, please for the love of everything that is holy and sacred, PLEASE TURN THE SHARPNESS DOWN! or else the game will look like that pixelated mess you see above. Turning the sharpness down makes it look much better as it smooths out most of the jaggies (I've turned down my sharpness to 30/100 and it still looks sharp, without most of the jaggies)
  11. My Twilight Princess just arrived, but I've got no Wii to play it on yet What about you?
  12. "or just for the future in that you may get games before the PAL versions are released?" Bingo! (Cheaper games too!) Plus there's the extra virtual console games that won't come out over here like Chrono Trigger and the fact that you may not neccessarily get a 60hz mode with PAL games.
  13. Wii Cracked

    This is just using Gamecube homebrew on the Wii. Nothing special.
  14. The Reviews Thread

    I wouldn't trust GS on this one. Wait for the IGN review before passing a judgement.
  15. The Reviews Thread

    http://gstp.ytmnd.com/ That is all I will say about this blasphemy...
  16. But will they be free or will we have to pay for them? I think I know what's gonna happen
  17. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    PAL 60 is 60hz. PAL 60 = 640 x 480 (or 852 x 480 for widescreen) at 60hz. This is the same as NTSC, PAL 50 is higher resolution but only runs at 50hz. Since 50hz is crap with games, there's no point even thinking about it since you'll want to run it in PAL 60 anyway. So that's why we all say it just runs in 480p.
  18. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    The Wii does 480i/p in 60hz and 576i/p in 50hz. So you get the normal PAL resolution but the game runs slower (So it's no good) BTW, I've got my eyes set on one of those 32" R7 series Sammy LCDs (Game mode and price appeal to me. I've given up looking for a viable 480p solution so I'm trying to make the best of a bad situation) How are they with upscaling? BTW if anyone is wondering what this "Game mode" is, it's a mode that turns off most of the processing to cut down on scaling lag.
  19. http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=148658 THANK GOD! Nintendo haven't IP blocked the Wii, importers worry no more! In short, if you import the US Wii you will access the US Virtual Console and will have to use US Prepay Cards (No word on using UK credit cards though) More info is there, WOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! :bouncy:
  20. Rare Games Question, Virtual Console.

    DKC is already confirmed for launch http://www.nintendo-europe.com/NOE/en/GB/news/article.do?elementId=c2Pwu1CRix49H0pI0Wkr1xy2vgL1Ks_R Now the real question is, will Rareware's other games make it too?
  21. Full Nintendo Wii European Launch Line Up

    Well that's just Hudson, will Nintendo be willing to follow suit in regards to NTSC only games? we'll have to wait and see. At least Chrono Trigger is a possibility now! MAKE IT HAPPEN SQUARE-ENIX! Edit: Hang on there's no Super Mario Bros in that list WTF!!! That's Bullshit!!! No Super Mario World I can kinda understand but not even SMB? Fuck that shit!!! Good news about Wario Ware though (Same time as US roughly) not so good about Excite Truck
  22. Full Nintendo Wii European Launch Line Up

    WOW! I knew that Excite Truck wouldn't make the launch but Trauma Center as well!? Glad I'm getting the US Wii now! although it's a bit unfair how Japan get much more Virtual Console games at launch than anyone else (And I expect it to stay the same throughout it's entire lifetime)
  23. One last secret - and its BIG!

    A mechanism that shoots out PS3 and Xbox 360 discs when you put them into the Wii! Seriously though, it'll probably be a new channel, gaming news perhaps?
  24. http://uk.media.games.ign.com/articles/693/693580/vids_1.html WPA 1 + 2 confirmed
  25. NE Wii playtime in a few hours - questions?

    How do Metroid Prime 3's new Expert controls feel? Is there anything new from this Mario Galaxy demo? Could you try asking them what the full list of launch titles is for europe? (Wii games and Virtual Console) That's about all I can think of at the mo, have fun!... you lucky (grumble grumble)
