SuperJim64 commented on Review: Goosebumps HorrorLand (Wii):

That's sad. So many good point and click games from back in the day and we get the garbage? Whatever happened to the Sierra library from the 90's, like Gabriel Knight, Phantsmagoria, King's Quest, and Quest for Glory.

SuperJim64 commented on Abylight Tuning Up Music On: Acoustic Guitar:

...what!? Really? I can see synth's, and keyboards, and guitar emulation on keys. This is sillyness. I'll probably buy it though, even though, I have 2 acoustics, which I'm sure I'll feel silly owning after DLing this killer app.

Oh and anyone remeber that thing you could set up multiple PSOnes, chain them together for local Multiplayer on seperate TV's!? lol... So, 4 Monitors, 4 PS1's, and the all the cables. Sounds like a good old time, after the hour set up, to play some destruction derby!

I'm curious to see how Kinect actually sells. I've seen alot of crazy peripherals for systems, most of which fail. I'm pretty sure the NES light gun(and not even all light guns, remember the PSOne light gun @ almost $90 with Time Crisis, and that gun may have only got a couple of other titles!), the Wii balance board, dance pads, guitar controllers maybe you can count EyeToy as the only real success's. The fails though, wow what a list! The Powerpad, powerglove, that SNES Bazooka thing, etc.
However, MS is really showing it's immarutrity with Kinect. Both Nintendo and Sega made attempts to make exspensive system hardware upgrades, and they both failed with products that offered more promise than Kinect. N64DD, and Sega 32X added so much more to their respective systems than Kinect does for XBox. Honestly, there seems to be a price point somewhere near $100 that equals fail for these sort of things, and Kinect blows past it with no regard.

SuperJim64 commented on BBC Study Suggests Brain Training Games are In...:

A six week non double blinded study that trying to answer a flawed question. I mean come on, I hope no one gave these fools a grant for this. I would love to see the full published report. (If they even published with a real journal like Journal of neuro science not the BBC). This kind of stuff isn't even his specialty!

maybe even cheaper yet! DS > looper (preferably stereo) > small amp > mic with usb out! That would be like$500 at full retail assuming you have the DS and computer, and want a a very full featured brand spankin new looper (around $300), a small wattage (wouldn't pay more than $100) amp and an average Sennhieser Mic( can find for $100).

@alexM
With some extra effects using the head phone out to any number of midi controlled devices with a usb to your computer (mac or PC, that's a whole other arguement that seems pointless to me but... whatever works). Or even like a GuitarRig Kontrol, or something similiar (then you'd get a software bundle and some cool effects to play with too) unit would most likely work. Put a Looper in front and then you can use the DS-10 features, stack the rytmik features, and blam use any instrument on top of that and wow, you got some real power right there. You can probably get away with this very garage set up for around $500... get a cheap Squier guitar to go with it it'll be like $600 or less if you're patient and check craigslist everyday.

SuperJim64 commented on Review: Nintendo DSi Instrument Tuner (DSiWare):

Actually, this is a bargain. It's comparable in features to the Korg CA-30 (near $20 US), minus the Korgs instrument cable input. However, the DSi tuner feature with the tune by ear, and mic pick up are way past the Korgs ability. Plus you get a pitch training game thrown in, which great for practice for fretboard memorization, singing, and so on. In reality the next step up in tuners from this app is a pedal, or rack mounted tuner which start at near $70. And oddly enough, I placed my DSi in mic range of my Vox AC-15 amp fuzzed out to the max with a Big Muff, and it still was able to work where the comparable Korg fails to recognize any chord. I do not suggest this, as the loud speaker (Massive Alnico/or cobalt Magnets) could brick your DSi.

SuperJim64 commented on Super Meat Boy Coming to Xbox Live Arcade:

Why the hate for wii ware? It's in some ways the best of the three services, along with XBLA. PSNetwork, is utter garbage, you get like 2-4 games per month, very few quality back catolog games are availible. The only issues with wii ware is, it's a touch pricey, no sales, and file sizes. Lets's face it, most add on content on XBLA and PSN is just ridiculous.

SuperJim64 commented on Wii Dominates 2009 Sales:

Anyone notice how the PS3 is finally making some in roads against the X-Box on that top 100? It'll be interesting to see what happens there in '10. I'm thinking PS3 will eventually have better sales than XBox but still be crushed by the Wii this time around. Next gen? Mario vs Sackboy. Get it on. That will be good for us all.

SuperJim64 commented on Pixmania: Wiimote Tech Is "Endangered":

Jut like to make a quick point. Lee Baker a Microsoft exec dealing with their advertisaing and marketing, as of 9/23/09 is the now a director over at AOP (Association of Online Publishers, whose goals are to increase networks for revenue an advertising to online publishers) which acts with Telegraph Media Group. Baker's role appears to go directly to the Telegraph's online news publishing and advertising revenue. Just sayin... looks a little fishy.
