Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Wii)

Looking good!

Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles - Interview Translated

This video (or rather the game it describes) has faced a lot of criticism on Youtube. Why? Because its going to be easier to play than previous titles. So some gamers have decided that means it will be shit. Well from the video clips I've seen it looks bloody brilliant.

I read recently that RE Code Veronica was the easiest of the franchise. I actually never finished it, cos I'd found it that hard! So I applaud the fact that this will be an easier game to complete. Having also enjoyed the "Survivor's Guide" version of RE:CV I love the idea of RE as an FPS/light gun game. Personally for me this is the most anticipated game on the Wii...

Wii Promo Video

FK's Wii-kly Sermons Bicentennial!

Wow! 200 visits on the web-counter! We might be up to a 1000 by 2009...

Here's a great picture of Beyonce to celebrate! LOL! :)

Red Steel: first Thoughts...

Wow! I played through the first two levels of Red Steel today! It's quite something! I have to say however, that the Wii so far hasn't grabbed me completely yet! I'm still dividing my time equally between all my older systems... It's significant that I've bought the Wii classic controller and Resident Evil for the Gamecube to play on my Wii.

I would suggest that (like Samba De Amigo), the motion sensor element of the Wii is better utilised with friends than on your own. The games such as Wii Play, Wii Sports or Warioware Smooth Moves will be great and "revolutionary" in terms of gaming. It will bring in non-gamers who like to play charades at parties etc. through the element of it being a silly physical experience that we can laugh at.

But Red Steel would be an equally good experience with a standard controller! (I'm going to whisper the next bit...)
I'd be equally happy with a PS3 or 360. I might change my mind as I get more familiar with the control system, but for now I'm happy with my Wii, but not blown away by it.

Having said that, it took me a long time to get into my DS.Originally I plumped for the PSP. Now I would as soon have a PSP as herpes... I'm a massive advocate of the DS, I think that it is indeed a truly revolutionary piece of kit...
Maybe I'll feel the same about the Wii in a few months time...

Artificial Intelligence

This is one of my favourite films!

Doll Face

I found this by total accident. I really like it.
It reminds me of elements of the Robofair in Steven Spielbergs AI...
