A blue light quietly pulsed from my Nintendo. The slot illumination function was operating as intended, as my Wii had something important to tell me. It was time for a system update. I wasn’t too surprised. I had heard the rumbling from the Internet. Word quickly spread that Nintendo released the News Channel a day early. A previous Nintendo press release mentioned that the News Channel would launch on January 27, 2007. More than two months after the launch of the Wii, today was the day to check out the News Channel. Here is the complete message from Nintendo, with line breaks included…
If I had known this is how it would have turned out, I would have said things differently. The 2006 E3 will not have scantly clad women. If there is even the slightest chance that I am somehow indirectly responsible for the death of booth babes, I apologize. Yet, I’m beginning to wonder if ArenaNet is behind this sudden change. I’m beginning to wonder if I drove ArenaNet to rally against the Booth Babes. Did ArenaNet call for an E3 Nerf?
If you own a Wii, odds are you’ve played Wii Sports. My favorite game is Wii Boxing. I love the dual wielding action. The wiimote feels very responsive. Wii Sports Boxing is one of my favorite fighting games – of all time. While experiencing this nirvana of video gaming, I found myself getting back to my gaming roots. Just how high of a score can I get? What happens when my rank hits the top of the chart?
ArenaNet has been quiet… too quiet. Where’s all the information about Chapter 4? That’s when I decided to kick things into “Competitive Intelligence” mode. For those of you that don’t know about CI, it’s ethical information gathering. It’s different than espionage. James Bond I’m not. While I own a Tuxedo, I doubt I could talk my way past the front desk of ArenaNet HQ.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Photics.com. Are you having a good day off? I’m using this time to work on the site. But before I dive heavily into XNA game development, I thought that I’d share with you the spoils of Christmas! Plenty of businesses depends heavily on holiday sales. A good shopping / spending season is a way to judge the strength of the economy. I know that I spent WAY more than I usually do.
