WiiSpot Podcast Episode #006 is here for your listening pleasure. It’s taken a while, but Edgar and I have worked through our kinks and scheduling problems. We hope this episode was worth the wait!

You can call this the GDC special edition as we spend most of our time talking about it. In the hour long episode we chat about some of the new games coming out, and what was talked about at GDC; we rant a bit about a rant.. bleeps are out in full force! We also chat about some of the non Nintendo announcements at GDC… even though we have just a few stories to talk about, this episode weighs in at just over an hour!

So enjoy, and stay tuned for episode #7 coming soon.

  1. Hey you guys, I’ve been recently listening to your wii podcasts, and I LOVE THEM!! they’re great, and PLEASE keep up the good work. I also listen to the ign game scoop, and they’re great too, but you guys are awesome. Anyways, I wanted to recommend you guys some games for the wii, because I had rented some games, and .. here they are.
    First of all, you guys MUST check out ssx blur, I mean its GREAT. the music changes with you’re pace, and the graphics are better than some of the ‘shovelware ports'(quoted by Lloyd), and you get to draw the uber tricks on the screen. Another game is godfather- the lackhand edition. You guys should definetely check out this game. In a nutshell, its grand theft auto in the 50’s, and the graphics are way better. One thing that I have noticed is that pretty ,uch all of the sites have sort of blurred , and distorted the images of the wii games, making them look like crap. I think thta lloyd was right in saying that the wii looks like a 360 on a standard set.(earlier episode) The graphics of the wii are not crap. They’re really good, and people are counting it out. Godfather looks great when you see it in action. One last thing I wanted to say is that I’m not like the other ‘steryotypical’ nerds that may need wet naps-lol. I made my school’s varsity basketball team, and I play tennis on my high school team. Anyways, keep up the great work with these podcasts! :)

  2. I felt very differently from you Edgar. When you snowboard your feet are one in front of the other, on one board… Why your movement is on the nunchuk, and then your jump, spin and tricks are on the nunchuk are MIND BOGGLING.

  3. Snowboarding is extremely diffcult to me!
