Old School

Which is better: Mario or Sonic? You can either think of now, or back when Sega still made consoles.

So please fill in the form and enjoy the pretty graph (which will also be approriately coloured):

Any oxymoron up there with "Military Intelligence" and "Microsoft Works"...

Writing about web page http://www.bbc.co.uk/consumer/tv_and_radio/watchdog/reports/consumer_goods/consumer_20080204.shtml

On Monday, Watchdog did a report on the DS and how Brain Training doesn't recognise some people's voices. As much as I like Watchdog, there are two reasons why this report was stupid, pointless, and irrational:

  1. All voice recognition is crap; they all have trouble with accents and general recognition.
  2. Even people have trouble with accents (I refer you to complaints about Indian call centres that do not centre around job availability).

Here's a video to back me up:

Nintendo Sued for Patent Infringement

Writing about web page http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/750/750001p1.html?RSSwhen2006-12-08_112500&RSSid=750001

What puzzles me is why they’ve waited until now to do this? The concept of the Wii and Wiimote have been all over the Internet for ages. If they were really that concerned about financial losses, they’d have nipped it in the bud a long time ago. Also, how is a device only compatible with a specific games console impacting the sales of an existing device for computers?

The Final Countdown

Follow-up to I need a Wii from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

According to IGN the UK release date and price for the Nintendo Wii are:

8th December for £179

It’ll come with a Wiimote and Nunchuck attachment, Wii Sports (which looks like a great way to get to grips, quite literally, with the Wiimote), power & video cables etc., and even batteries.

Games are set to be £35 to £40, with extra Wiimotes and Nunchucks available separately for £29 and £14 respectively, and the classic-style controller is also £14.

The waiting is killing me; I want one now!
