    Do you eat organ meat?

    I don't mind eating a heart of reindeer, deer or elk, but I'd stay away from kidney, liver, tongue or lungs. My parents ate those though, maybe not often, and we never bought it (my dad and granddads were hunters). Heart is "normal" meat, and not strange tasting or anyway, but I guess some...

    Hacking [RELEASE] WiiVC Injector Script (GC/Wii/Homebrew Support)

    I have similar issue. Figured it would be a good way to play Ocarina of Time, especially if combined with Patcher64+ tool. The game works well if started from Wii mode (classic controller obviously), but if started from Wii U it still demands a classic controller (and I have to force a restart...

    Nintendo secures RCM loader ban in the U.S.

    I guess I'll put one of these on my list of things to buy, I just WISH I could find a reseller. Or use Rekado, never heard of it until Nintendo banned this rcm loader. Seriosuly though, is there a chance of a Streisand effect here? A lot of people I know don't even know you could hack a...

    Rumor Bloomberg reports tech details of 4K Nintendo Switch model, release window and pricing

    ARM based hardware improved a lot in the last few years. I hope for a much faster switch but native 4K would be unrealistic for most games. Some games could work in 4k though if they mostly show images or videos. A game like animal crossing could certainly work in 4k on a "switch pro". But, my...

    Hacking Wii U Firmware Update 5.5.5 released

    My kids updated one of our consoles today, I assume to 5.5.5, no problem, cbhc still works. Our other wii u is blocked against updates. Our switch is blocked in the router (mac block), dns, incognito, whatever, but I'm a bit sloppy with the kids wii u it seems. I backup game saves often though...

    Nintendo Direct February 17, 2021 - roundup

    Skyward Sword HD - great, but we need more Zelda. Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask, sure, the mighty Wii U will play them all, but most Switch users never owned a Wii U, or a Wii, Gamecube or N64. I understand a quick release of Zelda HD remakes might flood the market, but releasing one HD remake...

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons gets Festivale update, Sanrio and Mario collaborations coming in March

    I like the little updates. Keep the kids happy and interested. Some things should have been there from the beginning, but adding content is great. As a side note, When adding games I prefer to add one at a time, better for the kids.

    What's your favourite gaming-related Christmas memory?

    I remember in 1988 hooking me and my brother's new Amiga 500 to my parents Hifi-system, the large 28" TV, and listening to Bubble Bobble, Menace, and Giana Sisters booming out of the speakers. I previously had a Commodore 128D which I also remember fondly. What I remember most is more recent...

    Got NextGen?

    Might consider one for playing uhd blu-ray as well as some sort ot game pass , but I guess the player might have cinavia protection? That won't do it for me, my kids only play backups.

    Great. Now we only need more Zelda ports. Yes, I'm serious.

    Homebrew 3DS Officially Discontinued - What does this mean for us?

    3DS sits a lot better in my hands than a Switch. I love the switch, in docked mode. I can't see that this changes much for people in general. The 3DS has been invisible in any shops or ads for years. It's as dead as Wii U where I live. But, my kids love their 3DSXL, and I'm planning to buy a...

    Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase September 2020 - Rune Factory 5 trailer, Disgaea 6 confirmed

    Ori, will of the wisps? I must say I'm surprised, this was very good news. I thought Ori 2 would be xbox/pc exclusive for a year or so. This is a huge release! I hope the Switch version is a good one though.

    Mario 3D All Stars Announced

    I've talked to several people that will actually buy a Switch now, pre-ordered the game even before they had the actual console. Mario, and Zelda, are apparently killer game series. I've also reconsidered; while I was hoping for a proper HD remaster in the likes of Zelda Wind Waker/Twilight...

    Mario 3D All Stars Announced

    Ok. I'm happy Mario Sunshine will be available on the Switch. I guess I won't buy it though, if there are no enhancements from the original gamecube version. Still have the wii and wii u hooked up. Disappointing these aren't proper HD remasters.
