193w ago - Today Nintendo has updated the Metroid.com Web site with a brand new trailer video featuring gameplay from the upcoming Wii game Metroid: Other M.
The video can be seen below courtesy of nintendolife via YouTube, with only a few months to go until the game is released in the US (this summer) followed by Europe later in the year.
The game takes place between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. Other M opens with a cinematic showing the final battle with Mother Brain at the conclusion of Super Metroid.
After escaping the exploding Planet Zebes, Samus awakens on a Galactic Federation ship. After leaving, she receives a distress call from a dormant "Bottle Ship", which is floating a short distance away from a Federation vessel.
Upon stepping into the ship, Samus encounters a group of GF soldiers, led by Anthony Higgs, who fought alongside her before she left the GF military. She also meets Adam Malkovich, who used to be her commanding officer when she was in the Federation Army.
Something happened that caused Samus to leave the army, causing Adam to be standoffish and guarded, calling Samus an "outsider" and ordering his team not to reveal any details of their mission to her.
203w ago - Here is the first minor demo video of our Community Custom Firmware (CCFW) for the Nintendo Wii console.
Theme is taken from DVBisOk and also he hase made some new layout hacks. For this demo I just have changed the text of the buttons in the settings menu. But I want to do some more like delating the system update and online update function.
Changing the FW branding. Mainly to time its not possible in case of a unknown Lz7 format for the Wii "wwwlib-rvl.lz7" file. This is the Wii libs and im pretty sure the version will be stored in there.
But anyway maybe its possible to hack the .js and .html files to swap a self-made image or hardcoded version and id branding on the same place.
Uhmm yea, it is called community because I do not really have a source code or something else. Instead of that I just put the best things from the community and compile it to one great installable CFW.
I'm sure there are more plz out what can do the job much better then me. But in a special case it seems that no one want it to do. So... I will do.
Also if it is possible I want to add priiloader as a fixed part of the CCFW so that you simply install a bunch of wads and your save. In case that you allready have bootmii as boot2 installed you then have 2 reall great backdoors...
204w ago - Update: NetFlix has finally shipping out the instant streaming discs for Wii owners. In order to request the disc, you have to log onto the official NetFlix Web site.
After many rumors, today the New York Times has officially confirmed that online movie rental service Netflix will be expanding to the Nintendo Wii console this Spring.
Considering the Wii's small internal memory, it should come as no surprise that this service will require an Instant Streaming Disc in the Wii each time someone wants to watch a movie, just like the PS3.
But while it's speculated that the PS3 will be getting an onboard solution to this problem, the same shouldn't be expected for Nintendo's console.
To quote: "The real winner in this? Netflix, of course. The online rental company has become quite ubiquitous these days. Even now I'm sure that a strong majority of our readership has a little red envelope either ready to be watched or sealed and ready for the long journey back home to the nearest Netflix shipping center.
