    Yeah, those have been around forever. You find people on craigslist selling HBC and backup loaders and hard drives loaded with games all the time.

    I even started a huge war against TheXboxGuy (who lives in my city) right here on GBAtemp and everyone shit on the guy.

    But yeah, can't do anything to stop them because no one cares to put up the money to take those assholes to court. People just have to learn to come here first. It's because of people like those that XFlak has the scam screen in ModMii.

    Well that was a quite humorous video, but I would argue there is some false advertisement going on there, if I may refer you to this point, http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9uzUGHJHlPg#t=198s, in the video. This guys imply that playing Nintendo DS games on your Wii is possible, when realistically for 99% of the games you can't get a playable performance out of them which more or less means even though I suppose the Wii can technically play DS games, the experience is far from enjoyable. Oh and I almost forgot

    BREWII!!!!!!

    I would like to formally issue a challenge to anyone actually providing those scams... best me one-on-one in a ring (or alley, whatever) and I'll give 'em 50% of my donations for a month or 2... but when I win all I want is the enjoyment of teaching them a lesson on video so I can upload it and mock them publicly.

    It might sound like I'm joking, but I'm serious. I doubt anyone would actually accept the challenge cuz I'll admit it is somewhat juvenile... but common, wouldn't you want to see XFlak beat the crap out of one of these scam artists? Heck, I could probably try and use such a video to raise awareness\donations for the MS and\or Autism societies... but of course I'll have to have one of my gfx artist buddies cover my face with a stormtrooper helmet to keep my identity secret.

    I would honestly love it if I could pull something like that off, but realistically I know it's not gonna happen... but still, it's fun to dream about.

    ROFLMAO!!! :rofl:


    *dries tears* Okay...seriously, guys: which wisecracker came up with this video? I know these "unlocking" sites tend to be pretty retarded, but this is just a flat-out parody.




    ...


    If I had any video editing skills, I'd make such a video about modmii. ("it's modmiii...it's for friiii. And I mean Completeliiii! realliiii! :D ")

    Isn't that a voice demodulator setting? I thought it was part of the fun. Kinda going for the "This shit is so illegal I better make sure the police cannot track me by my voice!" style. :lol:

    I wonder if it's the same guy who's screaming "BREWII!!!" and asking "Is is easy?" as the person sounding like a Darth Vader redux. He's playing Cars so I'm assuming he's a kid.

    Just saying about Wii Unlocker Ultra, it's NOT free, though I still bet it's adware/spyware.
