Gizmodo WiiFit review

Can't wait to get it. :)

Read it the WiiFit review here.

Indy 4 reviews surprisingly good

76% on Rottentomatoes, Ebert likes it, L.A. Times like it:

When you think about it, all the pre-release concern about just how good the new "Indy" was going to be, though understandable, is not completely rational. After all, given its Saturday matinee genre nature and the fact that star Ford, creator Lucas, director Spielberg, composer John Williams and editor Michael Kahn, among others, have all returned, it was inevitable that this film was going to fall within a very narrow range in terms of quality. It was either going to be a worse- or better-than-average Indiana Jones film.

It turns out it's one of the better ones and everyone involved can breathe a sigh of relief.

Dark Horizons' Indy 4 review

Read it here (he liked it). My take?

1. Raiders
2. Crusade
3. Skull
4. Doom

Great first half (except the ... you'll see, it's very obvious), 2nd part meh (maybe because I knew everything already).

Speed Racer failed

From Box Office Mojo:

WEEKEND ESTIMATES
1. Iron Man $50,500,000
2. Speed Racer $20,210,000
3. What Happens in Vegas $20,000,000


That's too bad, it actually looked like fun. It's going to be an awesome Bluray title (visually and sonically).

Installing Homebrew Stuff on your DS

So following the previous Homebrew Info post, I decided to go wit an R4 card, which I got today in the mail (ordered from gameyeeeah.com using this discount code). For some reason as I was checking the site, gameyeeeah doesn't show this product. Sold out? No idea. But there are other sites that sell the R4. It cost me $40, which is cheap and expensive. Cheap if you load up your DS with tons of stuff. Expensive if you just use it for one program, like me. :) I will eventually put some music and movies on there (legally of course), but right now I want to get the animation programs working. And no, I won't put DS game ROMs on there. Except NES ones, the ones I own. Cobra Triangle!! Rad Racer!! Solar Jetman!!! etc.

Next I downloaded the Kernel software from the R4 site, which tells you this:

After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one moonshl folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT, _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF card to replace the former files.


Which I did.

I then dropped the animanate.nds file into the root as well. Then you take the MicroSD card from the computer to the DS, boot up the DS and it will automatically load up the R4 menu. Tap the pacman icon and choose the animanate file, create a sav file and off you go animating.

Flickbook has a v3 out now, will try it out next.

R4 menu description, how-to and tips can be found here.

More moonshell info can be found here, which also has a visual step-by-step process (for the M3 though; some things are different - just follow what I wrote above if you want to get a quick start on those animation programs).

Next up will be the DS News site for more research and emulator browsing.

After testing both animanatee and flickbook I'm going with animanatee. Check academyanimation.blogspot.com for a post about that (coming today).

This site seems to have demos of games (haven't tried them yet, although if they are full ROMs, make sure that you only download the games you already own). For real demos go here and here.

Spy Video Car


Ever since seeing that Fat Shark R/C Car w/ camera (or whatever it was called), I've been fascinated by this (I'm easily amused). But the 650 Euros are a bummer. But you could get the $550 Pilot View FPV 2400 (but you still need your car... or pet). Then how about the $90 Spy Video Car??? Black and white image only, but night vision! :)
Runs on 12 AAs though, uff! No rechargeable batteries??
