Watch out for June!

Remember when I use to, you know, write here? I know, I haven't been very active here since sometime in February, but I have my reasons! I have just under 3 weeks left to churn out loads of coursework for Uni, working on stuff like this and this, but once that's all out of the way, I have lots of articles I want to write up. These include:

ROOMMANIA #203: Another quirky Japanese title that barely anyone has played will be arriving in the post soon. Think the Sims, only involving ping pong balls and a lot of smoking, so I've heard. Can't wait to give this a go!

MORE BLEEM! Yes, more Bleemcast compatible Playstation games will be tested and shown off. There's around 200 games out there that this emulator can run, and I intend to try as many of them out as possible!

and best of all...

A NEW ABILITY I JUST DISCOVERED FOR THE FISHING CONTROLLER. As in another game that works as well as Soul Calibur does. I'm not kidding, and you'll be thinking "why didn't I think of that?" when I reveal what game (or should I say, two games) it is! Much like Space Channel 5 with the dance mat, I found this by pure experimentation. You'll just have to wait and see!

Anyone new to this blog will not know that when I post, I post big fat juicy articles that take about ten hours to write and still end up full of terrible typos that make them virtually un-readable. Some ofthem even manged to get "digged", whatever that means. Here is a bunch of links to the best ones:

DREAMCAST GAMES THAT SHOULD BE REMADE ON WII*

* That's remade, not ported, as the Digg link got wrong.

Now if you'll excuse me, all that full caps text has given me a headache. To send you off, here's a direct embed of Caleb's brilliant Soul Calibur with fishing controller video, for those who are too lazy to go to his blog. Rock on, the All-American Dreamcaster!

On of my favorite pictures from this blog is the "extend cable" picture from the controller thingy article!

Thanks for the link to my video.

It's amazing how many people didn't get your point about the remakes on the Wii. How the HELL could ANYONE make a case for NOT remaking Samba de Amigo!?!!??! Yet people did.

Long live the undead console!

Also I found some cool new clips of Samba de Amigo being played with Wii Controllers. I have no idea if it is fake or not.

It's on my Hunkyak Blog.

Caleb: Yeah, I've seen it. His taken a Dreamcast emulator and in some kind of voodoo magic...I mean hacking, made the controls work with two remotes. Very nice.

Good to see the odd post trickling out guys! I really want to get writing again but this 'job' doesnt allow much time for dreamcasting either. Looking forward to your articles GM. As ever, if I pick anything intersting up I'll be sure to blog it down here!
