319w ago - Mario Galaxy contains a new check to stop backups from running. This update to the firmware on the Cyclowiz Wii modchip for both PAL and NTSC Wii's allegedly fixes the problem, though it may break other things as it is a beta. More as this develops...
319w ago - Memento have successfully hacked the Memor 32 memory card for PS2 in order to enable it to have the power of a PS2 mod-chip. This means that imports, homebrew and back-ups will now be possible if you flash their hacked BiOS onto the PS2 Memor 32 memory card.
The user interface is reportedly not complete but they are working on improving things. Currently they have upload a PAL BETA of their hack for the Memor 32 available below along with the release notes:
Finally we are almost done! We had some last minute issues and decided to test them deeper to be sure that all was working good. We are still completing the User interface and will have to need a couple more days to finish up.
We decided meantime to release this first BETA PAL ONLY version of the software for everyone to test. This should start to give you a good idea about how easy and flexible the final release wil be, but remember, is only a BETA!! Final version is due this week.
Needless to say, 'Memento' sounds too much like Cobra, Epsilon, M33, Cyclops, and other fabricated release groups for our taste but sceners know better
319w ago - Have you had enough Guitar Hero yet? The sales totaling into the millions and growing every day say you haven't. Activision agrees. In 2007 alone we've already seen Guitar Hero 2 release on Xbox 360 and Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the '80s on PS2, but that hasn't stopped the demand for more.
Enter Guitar Hero 3, the first in the franchise made by development studio Neversoft after the former team, Harmonix, was snatched up by MTV Games. You can toss out any fears you might have had about a new developer ruining your favorite franchise right now. Guitar Hero 3 is another great reason to slip into some tight leather pants and rock out with your friends.
For music rhythm games, it often begins and ends with the soundtrack. Guitar Hero 3 has nothing to worry about. From top to bottom, this is easily the best lineup yet. Metallica, The Rolling Stones, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith and more are all in with master recordings no less. Activision even got the Sex Pistols to re-record Anarchy in the UK just for the game.
The same goes for Living Colour's Cult of Personality. The songs that were performed by cover bands, as usual, don't live up to the originals but there are less of them than ever before. This time, when you start up a Guns n' Roses track (Welcome to the Jungle), it will be Axl Rose...
