(Throughout this blog, Iím not supporting piracy. Unless you pirate NES, SNES, and older games that you canít just stroll into wall mart and buy. Also, Iím not saying that you should hack othersí wiis, for itís risky and dangerous. Thank you
Hacking the two major Nintendo Consoles is a breeze if you havenít looked into it. The DS requires that you order something online. Thatís it. All you need for the Wii to hack it, is a SD card. So why not hack your wii? Well, hereís why you should. In no Particular order. Although #1 has to be #1.
10. Itís too easy!
Why not hack your wii? Itís so friggin easy. Thereís now apps you put a whole package onto your wii which hacks it for you. But as for me, my wii was hacked before the awesome packages came out, and I did it by IOS and CIOS. But by hacking it, you gain access to (1) Playing DVDs, (2) The Homebrew Browser, capable of letting you download any homebrew, and (3) Bootmii, the fix-it-system if you suck.
Requirements to hack a wii: SD card and internet.
You can literally emulate ALL of nintendoís consoles. Even the DS, which I havenít tried, but it works. You can emulate stuff such as PS 1, DOSBox, Visual Script, Colecovision, Sega, Arcades, etc.
8. USB Loading.
At one time, I had around 100 ps2 games because at that time my parents spoiled me. I had to lug them around whenever I went somewhere. And Boom! USB loading for the wii. I donít have to lug my games around now too. And it automatically fixes one form of AP (Anti-Piracy), the DOL issue. Alternate DOLs can automatically be selected through Wiiflow, the Wiiís best USB loader. Also, itís a great alternative to those whoís DVD drive wonít allow burnt dvds.
7. Custom Wii Themes.
No one has found out how to change the music on the home screen, but people have other stuff. You can change the Health Warning Sign, and the home menuís overall look. I made mine something called DarkWii or something like that, because itís surprisingly sleek. And with a USB loader, you can make a forwarder channel that takes you right to the game the channel was made for. And with Gecko OS, you can move your Game Channel (That reads the disk, usually in the top left of the wii home menu).
This app has great potential, yet I donít see many people take advantage of it. It allows you to replace the textures in game with custom ones. Which sounds like a great idea. If youíre willing to take the time to go try this out, do it. Iíd like to see the results.
5. Youíll be the envy of your friends.
My friends think Iím an expert hacker. And Iím just sorta like ďYeaaahhhÖĒ.
4. First looks at new games from overseas.
I did this with S&P 2. Then I bought the American release to support it, and for it not to be illegal. Boom. I knew it was ah-mazing before anyone else did. I also tried a little bit of Sengoku Basara or whatever the gameís called.
Itís the ultimate way to back up your system. With Bootmii, you can create a NAND from your current wii that copies the data from the wii into an SD card. Then you place a nintendoís transfer disc (Only Nintendo has it, youíd have to pirate it) and that would allow you to transfer the data from one console to another.
2. Reason #1.
1.Disaster, Day of Crisis
A game as #1? What?
Yes. This game is easily in my top 5 favorite wii games. Itís never been brought to the U.S. because (According to wikipedia) Reggie said he wanted to view sales charts for EU and then release it in the U.S. if the sales are good. This game, is amazing. Iíd give it a 9 out of 10. Iíd give it an award. This game is amazing. Part rail-shooter, Part rescue mission, part driving, part etc.
GO GET THIS GAME NOW! Granted you have a wii..
