Feel that gnawing sensation at the base of your spine? That uncomfortable shiver that creeps along your extremities and makes your hair stand on end? That's called "fear," and it's probably what you experienced every time you downloaded a game on the Wii. With the Wii U on the horizon, that fear is likely back in full force as you nervously pace about, wondering if Nintendo will hold to its promise of offering a means of transferring Wii data to the new console.

Well, tell fear to go f*ck itself, because Nintendo's got this sh*t under control. In the Wii U instruction manual, the transfer is lined out step by step:

  1. Insert an SD card into the Wii U to initiate the Wii System Transfer application.
  2. Remove the SD card and insert it into the Wii.
  3. Download a transfer application from the Wii Shop to move all Wii data to the card.
  4. Re-insert the card into the Wii U to complete the process.

With this method, you'll be able to move over all Wii saves, WiiWare and Virtual Console data and saves, add-on content, leftover Wii Points, Wii Shop activity, and your Miis. Does that satisfy you? See! Nothing to worry about!

When PlayStation TV was first announced for Japan, I was fond of the device, at least conceptually, as someone who still doesn't own a PS Vita (sorry, Steven). But I haven't given the microconsole much thought since then -- i...more

Switching face plates on the New 3DS looks easy enough

Feels like the New 3DS was only just announced the other week, but it's already available in Japan. Nintendo has been busy uploading videos like this one which details how to swap out the system's face plates. Interestingly, the stylus can be used to pry them open. Neat design! There are also a ton of videos showing the various 3DS themes.more

Look at this super skinny gaming rig from PiixL, two inches thick

I've hid my gaming/media PC rig behind or under my television for years. It's much easier these days with all of the small form factor boxes available.  But I don't care how lovely they make these things; I'm still hidin...more
