I Jog, You Jog, Wii Jog!

Now I want to get more active and I think I found exactly the right thing to do it…

Enter the Wii Jog accessory, which works with the Nunchuck to give more than a leg stretch to your games!

It is used to make the Nunchuck compliant games more interactive as you have to actually run on the spot to make your character move anywhere. You must follow the instructions on the device booklet and move the joystick on the Nunchuck before you start to jog. When you stop jogging, no matter if you have the joystick out of normal position, your character will also come to a very abrupt halt!

I managed to actually put on a sweat as I used it for a long time. I found a game that worked with it called deBlob and it helps me more as I can stay put on things rather than fall off. The only problem is I cant use it against the clock on there but it is great for social gatherings and just a great piece of tech to have a laugh with! It will also work with Animal Crossing too which makes life easier.
The game will work with most of the Nunchuck controlled games and you can see Jason demonstrate it in the video above!

The Jog costs around £10 now and is available at many online retailers!

Magic Boy Should Get Re-release

This game should be re-released on the Wii or DS Nintendo console because I really enjoyed playing it in my youth. Its challenging levels bring excitement and everyone should play this at some time in their life.

I started playing Magic Boy in the 90’s and I think it is a great game because it was the first real platform game I had and it was a challenge to complete. I still have it now and don’t play very often as I’m on my social networks. (What a surprise!)

In Magic Boy you control a male character that has a wand and you blast the monsters and send them to jail. They may escape if you are too slow in finishing the level. You can also hit things to collect fruit and that adds to your score. For more points you might see letters that you need to pick up to spell EXTRA.

There are 4 lands to play in but each land has 8 levels inside the land. I have never completed it but I am up for a challenge sometime I may give it a go!

If they did make another version I’d like to see it in the iTunes App Store so I could have it on my iPod, if they didnt publish it for Nintendo. They could add a certain amount of internet features where you could earn points on ‘Game Center’ and ‘Open Feint’. This however will probably never get done but I’d like to know of games that are like this one that are on the App Store.

Here is a Youtube video of the game from the SNES

Nintendo 3DS : Will It Kill 2D Gaming?

So now the next Nintendo handheld console is due to hit the shelves sometime, what does everyone think of the hype surrounding it and will it bring more gamers. Or is 2D still where it is at for old school gaming?

Please let me know your thoughts.
