Wii SD Transfer Speeds Increase With New Update

Above displays a video of an increased download speed if you download the new firmware update for your Nintendo Wii. The above video displays the impressive WiiWare game “World of Goo” being transferred in exactly 30 seconds.

I should note however if you download the new update, you can say goodbye to your homebrew channel as Nintendo has decided to block the much downloaded channel yet again… Download at your own risk…

GTA Chinatown Wars Info

Here are some details for Chinatown Wars for the DS (real clever introduction sentence I know…My wife is currently having some contractions so I am a bit distracted):

– GPS seen on the touch screen while you move through the city

– You can mark points that you want and the GPS will always tell you the shortest legal route to the destination with yellow or blue arrows
– New discoveries (such as gas stations) are added to the map
– Top screen brings you all the action, while the lower screen will let you control elements like the PDA, GPS, the radio, access to the people on the map, or using Motolov cocktails and grenades.
– Drugs have a big importance in the game
– Drug system can be compared to Drugwars
– You have to control the stock of drugs, buy them in one neighborhood and sell them in another – Good way to make money in the game

World of Goo Piracy Rate 90%

Here’s a horrible fact; only one in ten people playing World of Goo has actually paid for it.

“Last we checked, the piracy rate was about 90 percent,” said Carmel in a Rock, Paper, Shotgun posting.

“We’re doing okay, though. We’re getting good sales through WiiWare, Steam and our Web site. Not going bankrupt just yet.”

I urge all you reading this post, if you want a really, really good game, spend the 15 bucks and purchase World of Goo. You will be happy you did.
