Bye, Bye Twilight Hack and Freeloader

The new Wii Menu Update (3.3) renders the Twilight hack useless. I'm surprised it took Nintendo this long. I'm sure the fine folks of the Wiibrew community will find another exploit in no time. Have any of you used the Twilight Hack? I tried it out of curiosity, but there's not much you can do with it.

The update also kills the freeloader, which could be devastating news to many importers. Here's to hoping Datel comes out with an updated version in the near future.

Top 10 Attacks Against the Video Game Industry

Recoton007 from Wegame.com put together a great video of the top 10 media attacks on the video game industry. It's pretty funny how almost half of them involve Thompsonator. I remember #8 really pissing me off. Anyway, here's the video:

That's a pretty epic mustache Mr. Jack is sporting in #4. So, are there any you feel should have been included that he left out? If so, post it here.   read

Ars Technica joins the review crashing party. Mentions little 'ole Destructoid.

It seems like I have been hearing this from every site possible, but I'm glad the sketchiness of high profile gaming reviews is finally getting some publicity. I thought it was pretty interesting that they mentioned Destructoid (among other sites). Like I said, I've heard all of these complaints before, but I'm definitely not getting tired of them. Here's a little snippet from the the post:

"The next issue, and this is perhaps even more troubling, is the act of handing out exclusive reviews. This is basically the only way that print can compete with the online media these days: the writer gets to play the game, write the review, and then the rest of the sites have to hold their reviews until the time is up on that exclusive. Whenever you see the words "exclusive review," keep in mind that the outlet in question was essentially handed a check. Exclusive reviews are huge business, draw in huge numbers of readers—and that's worth a whole lot of money and prestige. Keep in mind that the rush of readers isn't the only power of exclusive reviews: gaming blogs like Kotaku, Destructoid, and, yes, Opposable Thumbs, often work as chop-shops when it comes to reviews. If the review talks about the game's length, or includes a list of weapons or interesting features, that data will then be talked about across the blogs...."

So, what do you guys think the future holds for game reviews? Will the high profile game review sites change their ways, or will gamers start looking to independent gaming sites (like this one) to get their review fix?   read

Blogoscrub

I never really got into blogs. I guess it's because I don't see why people would be interested in the random things I have to say. There's a first time for everything...right? I'm not sure if this is supposed to be used as a personal blog or strictly a gaming related blog or both, but whatever, I'll just go with tha flow. I've been apart of numerous gaming communities in the past, and none of them really offered anything unique or different. That's where comes in. I have been lurking Dtoid for a while now, and I figured I'd sign up and get involved (I think I signed up about a month ago). I'm hoping to get actively involved in this great community, and maybe get some friends on that wonderful list. Well, I guess that's it for now, thanks in advanced for the belated welcome!   read
