Vii are the knockoffs!

May 31, 2008

Ever heard of the Chinese knockoff of the Wii? The Vii looks like a Wii, you interact with it like a Wii. So what makes it different? The games. When purchased, the Vii comes with about 20 games to play. Games like fishing, tennis, baseball, etc. What makes this console weider is its knockoff of a Mii. Instead of a person for a Mii, it is more of a big-eared alien type thing. Who would want to play as an alien on over 200 games?

Here is the Vii 2

Now the remote may be cool, but take notice of the “box” itself. Thicker than the Wii, and taller than the Wii. An who knows, maybe it is made with lead paint.

Mario Super Sluggers Article

May 27, 2008

Here is an article on Mario Super Sluggers from some random Japanese Nintendo Magazine.

 Translation:

-9 Total Stadiums to play in (Possible 10th one is unlocked?)

-More extensive Story Mode.

-Up to 4 players can play all Modes.

-Every character has special pitching & batting abilities: Mario throws / hits a massive Fireball, Luigi uses the Tornado Ball, Yoshi has an Egg Rainbow move & Bowser Jr. sends splatters of paint everywhere which hide where the ball is.

-New Defensive Items can be used such as a Cannon that shoots a Bob-Omb at a fielder who is just about to catch your pop-up fly ball. This is done by pointing at the screen with the Wii Remote and pressing the B trigger to fire.

-Play during the Day or at Night in Stadiums.

-Play as your Miis.

-Perform Special character moves in the outfield. For example: Jump on Mario’s head for an extra boost into the air to catch fly balls.

-The game is running on a brand new engine, built from the ground up for Wii. Not a rehashed engine of the Gamecube game. This means higher res textures, more detail in animations, nicer effects, smother looking characters, etc.

-Shake Wii Remote to run faster, but not necessary.

-Swing Wii Remote to hit the ball when Batting.Your results will vary based on the strength and timing of your movement.

-Swing Wii remote to pitch. You can add spin and curve to the ball if your twist your wrist when pitching. You can also pitch faster by swinging harder.
