Yeah, that's the "official" one Nintendo was showing off at last year's E3. The one i linked to is by some company called Core Gamer that made the Wii Sports pack. They don't have any pic of their Wii Blaster.

The answer appears to be "Yes!"

I'm at 2399. Don't think I'll be getting 2400 anytime soon...
Cheated to do it though. Quit games mid-stream if he lost a point.

I'm not as found of that one because it's basically just a "case" for your nunchuck and remote, while the E3 prototype looks like and actual attachment.

Looks like Actraiser hit the Australian VC according to Kotaku. Here's hoping we get it soon.

I'm digging the new Internet channel. Having the auto-hide for the bottom toolbar rocks. A lot of videos still don't seem to play though

Hehe.. actually, I've never heard of it. I have actually not been too impressed with "doujin" shmups in comparison to recent commercial games. I'll see if I can try this one out though.

Yes the speed at which all websites load up is amazing. I love the new scrolling/zooming and all the websites seem to look much better on my television vs. the trial version. I also love all the shortcut keys using the B-trigger. Great job Nintendo/Opera!

I'd be more excited about having a browser on the Wii if I didn't already have my 46" TV hooked up to my computer ... It's still a great feature for those who don't have a TV able to hook up to a computer.

Same here. The difference between 480p and 1080p is huge when browsing.

Main reason that I use the PS3 browser if I happen to need to go online in the living room. Browsing in 1080i is a huge improvement over 480p.

So I'm renting Godfather... and I have to say... it's a really nice game. Definately worth owning. I've only played it for about 2-3 hours but the map is pretty huge and the gameplay is pretty fun. The controls are awesome. I feel a little sadistic playing, but it's fun to beat the hell of guys with punching motions. The punching in this game seems more responsive than Wii Boxing.

Some fun things to do with the controls: Throw guys up against the wall. Slam their heads into nearby objects, punching, etc. Ok.. yeah... it's a bit twisted to take pleasure in that... but oh well..

I can't afford to spend $50 right now, but I think it's worth it. I'll definately pick this one up in the future.
