Connection Ambassador is a program that has been available to Japanese Wii owners for a while and now the program will be available to European owners. To explain, "Connection Ambassador" is a program that Nintendo has created to get current owners of Wii and DS consoles to teach newer owners how to connect an enjoy the system's many features. In return for being an ambassador the person earns free Wii points and other little goodies. Below you can find video of the European version of Nintendo attempt to grow the Wii's online community.

The new "No More Heroes" game is right around the corner. If you are feeling a bit behind the loop or are in need of some catching up, feel free to check out this video.
If you're wondering about the slow pace of things honestly, there really is not much gaming news around this time of year. Aside from that I am working with two other friends to create a streamlined site for our multiple blogs. The site is called GameChan and while I do have a URL I will not present it yet. Not until I finish up more of the site. In it's current state, the site is a utter mess and would be an embarrassment to show. Please send me your best wishes while I figure to this horrid site editor and try to get things together.

Well well well, I was wondering when we were finally going to get a Monster Rancher game for the Nintendo DS. Maybe I am a bit out of the loop but, I really have not heard much from the franchise since the PS one days. Those days, I used to come home from school just to watch the cartoon on Fox Kids. The trailer for the game is below. Feel free to go crazy.

Guess what everyone, the Wii Remote will soon be available in two new colors, blue and pink. The remotes will go on sale starting February 14, just in time to give your valentine a colorful surprise to an old favorite. Even better news is that these remotes will come bundled with a MotionPlus™ adapter. I assume that they will be priced in the same way as the current Black remote bundle which is currently $49.99. Dot take my word on the final pricing but it is highly likely.

With the Power Rangers franchise ending this year and "Kamen Rider Dragon Knight" coming to a close, I have been busy looking for other sources to get my "live action" fix. This week I started to watch "Kamen Rider: Decade" and I'm also watching "Kamen Rider W" and "Samurai Sentai: Shinkenger" (the show that was supposed to be Power Rangers 2010) on the side. I have to say that, as a first time viewer of the Japanese version of Kamen Rider, this show gets me more excited to learn about the Kamen Rider universe. Below is my playlist for the "Decade" series. It's all 31 episodes and the music video of the theme song (to kick things off. Feel free to sit back and enjoy watching the show.

Sorry everyone but there is NO WAY I can go back and post up missing episodes of Nintendo Week, without it being annoyingly time consuming. With that said, here is today's episode.
There are still a few games that make me want to have a Nintendo DS Lite (Even if my DSi is way superior), this is one of those games. "Easy Piano" is looking to do for the piano, what "Jam Sessions" did for the guitar, teach you how to play the piano. This game comes with a keyboard attachment that gets plugged in to the Slot-2 port (GBA port) of the DS/DS-Lite. The Slot-1 card (NDS Game Card) comes jam packed with piano tutorials, mini games and other tools. The trailer is below so have fun!
Now this is an interesting little application for the iPhone, a Nintendo 64 emulator. Personally I never understood iPhone gaming. Really, games made for a touch screen is one thing but games that require you to use touch screen buttons to control major functions of the game, that's a "no no". Even in DS games, I only like my touch screen buttons to serve a secondary feature. "Tony Hawk American Sk8teland" (albeit a great game) used to have its "turn off" moments with me when I had to move from my buttons and use the touch screen, to pick up my skater. Back to this emulator, obviously Nintendo will squash this like a bug in the "store" area but, I'm sure all the homebrewers will have fun with this little thing. Check out the footage below.
Im back everyone. Things have been very rough emotionally and honestly, this blog would serve better from having a staff than just one person working on it. Lately I have been enjoying my Nintendo DSi system (blue) and if you're wondering what I have been playing lately, check out my little list below...
When I'm totally in my wrestling geek mood, I will spend hours at a time playing this. At first the controls took some getting used to. The console versions of this game has a more "elaborate" control setup. In the DS game, you have more of a feeling of the PlayStation One SmackDown controls with a bit slower speed than WWF No Mercy. This game is almost perfect. The only flaw I can see is the slowness of the matches and the "digital" movement of the characters. The DS has an "eight way" digital pad, maybe next years game will feature more fluidity in character motion.
I have yet to see a racing series on the DS that can match the asphalt Urban GT games. I'm playing through part 2 and I know part 4 is available on DSiWare but, what in the world happened to part 3? I guell Ill do some research later tonight. Right now I have so much time invested into this game and the car models are simply stunning for the DS. I would love to see a full on, adventure game made for the DSi from these guys. Sorry "Need for Speed", you just got owned in the street racing genre by the new guys!
Ladies and Gentlemen, "Kingdom Hearts" has finally made it to a Nintendo console... in 3D! Sorry but, for Nintendo gamers, "Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories" is definitely not a 3D "Hearts" game. I can tell you stories of the Friday night where I spent four hours playing this game. Coming from a total "Kingdom Hearts" noob, I not have new found respect for this game. I can totally see why this franchise is a good one and this is a game that I will be trying very hard to finish.
sometimes it's just good to be bad. Not note that I, in NO way condone the playing of this game by ANYONE under the game of 17. With that said, if you are old enough to play this game and you own any incarnation of a DS portable you MUST get this game. There's soo much coolness in this game that these little words can not explain. Actually I think I'll be cutting this short so I can get back to playing GTA!
There are other DS games that I play but these are my main four for the time being. Ok I'm outtie. It's game time :D
