Nintendo Revolution has a new name...

And it............. sucks. It has been re-dubbed the Nintendo "Wii". As in "we."

While the code-name Revolution expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that seperates videogame players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?

Wii sounds like "we," which emphasizes the console is for everyone. Wii can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just Wii.

Wii has a distinctive "ii" spelling that symbolizes both the unique controllers and the image of people playing it. And Wii, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of videogames that sets it apart from the crowd.

So that's Wii. But now Nintendo needs you. Because it's really not about you or me. It's about Wii. And together, Wii will change everything.

I liked "Revolution" much better.

NES Cart Development

I think that I posted how I was interested how to take a NES ROM and put it onto an actual cartridge to play in an actual NES. Well, I got a site up and I made some SUPER progress on the "hows" and "whys".


Red Diamond

Been listening to old David Bowie today at work and was wondering whay my glam rock name would be... found a generator and it told me "Red Diamond".

As Carlito from WWE would say: "That... is cool."

So, what would your glam rock name be? Use a generator or make one up.

Great glam rock/genre movies: Velvet Goldmine, Party Monster, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rocky Horror Picture Show.

My wife kicks ass!

She's been loving the Nintendo DS and plays Brain Age every day. She absolutely digs the sudoku feature and tends to play that first.

And yes, her brain age is MUCH better than mine. She's at a 22 brain age. DAY-UM!

As for me, I played (and beat) the NES 'River City Ransom' again. I forgot how much fun it is! Truly one of my top 10 games for the NES of all time.

By the way... you HAVE to download Pirate Baby. Really. (although, in the middle,... it's really probably not safe for work in a few places unless you work at a place that likes the extreme Family Guy and South Park episodes). But Collin will L-O-V-E it! (zombies)

Arby's SUCKS ASS!! Brain Age Doesn't!!

Ok, so on Friday I made the mistake of eating Arby's. Long story short (too late) I got food poisoning. Bad bad stuff. I'm still feeling all in knots. Visiting the restroom ever hour (not even slightly joking here) is getting very old (and very painful) very fast.

On a lighter note (lord knows I need it) Brain Age releases tomorrow! A great link for you HERE.

Also, you may remember a blogging of mine a few weeks ago about a DS game that allowed a person to take one of 5 languages, point to the DS saying something in Japanese and then having the DS translate it perfectly? Great Japanese link about that HERE. The video's of a lady in Thailand buying a hat, and the second is her getting something to eat. Just let it load, and it'll play automatically. Then, click on the right arrow just below the movie and you'll see another short clip. It'd be so wonderful if they brought this out in the US.

And thanks to my mom for getting me Kingsdom Hearts II for my birthday and humoring me and watched the opening movie with me. You rock.

Reminds me of the "Greg the Bunny" world.

Press play and once the 'loading' goes away, press pause and let it load fully before watching it.

35th Birthday

My aunt, uncle, and mother all called today at 7:00am to wish me a happy birthday. I love my family.

I'll be making the boxes tonight and taking pictures. Hopefully i'll get to put them up tonight as well, but i've been very busy last night and today getting the Japan trip planned. Much work.

Here's a very cool baseball/NES link. Someone re-enacted the 1986 World series (the last 8 minutes of it) using the NES baseball game.
