I am always on the lookout for unique games. There is an import of that Flower, Sun and Rain game for the PS2, I was thinking it might have been a version of PS3 Flower.
I thought about importing it but I found out it had a DS English release. I picked it up a few years ago for like $15 new.

Wii Internet Browsing

I am enjoying the convenience of casual browsing while kicked back on the living room couch. The Wii remote is so easy to use as a wireless "Mouse" pointer. Unfortunate that I can't watch YouTube though. I have component cables and the text is very readable if zoomed a little. But then I get the Ping Pong affect scrolling side to side trying to read these forums. The forum text box is a little wider then the HD screen when zoomed slightly.

Options
Wii does have a single column mode. It does show the text in very large font but only a few words will be on the screen at once. I noticed Wikipedia senses my Wii and kicks on a beautiful screen designed for I think a mobile phone screen. Text is just the right size and no ping pong reading! A shame other sites do not auto detect the Wii Opera browser and display a "Mobile Phone" friendly screen size.

Couple Questions

1. I remember a while back, a mention of a Mobile Phone version of Racketboy. Anyone know the link?

2. Is there a way to load other sites in the "Mobile Phone" screen mode, say an address followed by a few characters?

Blah Ha! It does Work!

First time I tried YouTube since updating Wii Opera. :mrgreen:

I also discovered adding a m. "Mobile Phone" to some sites cuts out some of the bloat.

Anyone know if Racketboy will be creating a Mobil Phone screen mode? :?

Elebits
ImageImage

http://www.gamestop.com/wii/games/elebits-used/64094

In my quest to find unusual Motion Control games for the Wii, I came across this Launch Title gem. Only five bucks at Gamestop. Two things caught my eye when I researched it. Put out by Konami and the game is reviewed as a cross between Pikimin and Katamari. Maybe because the creatures look similar and there is the "Collect Them All" objects, to be viewed later as in Katamari. The game is basically a hunt of all the Elebit creatures who run away when uncovered. Capture by "shooting" with either A or B button.

The real eye opener is innovative use of the motion controls of the Wii Remote. To open a closet door grab with either the A or B button and flip the door to the right or left with a flick of the wrist. Open drawers by pulling the remote towards you slightly, close by pushing away. Open door knobs and faucets by twisting the remote. Amazing how natural the functions are with a simple movement of the Remote.

Note this is all done with the regular Remote not the newer Motion Plus. :shock:

Image

As you progress and collect the Elebits, your level up power increases. Pick up larger objects and turn on various electrical devices. Level 7 is a mad frenzy of collecting quick moving Elebits. You literally throw chairs, tables, vases and even a piano out of your way trying to catch the creatures. The best way to describe is think of a cop TV show or movie. The scene when a bunch of police detectives are tossing stuff looking for evidence, destroying an entire room. :lol:

Image

There are also different power enhancements such as Cookie bait, Knockout ball and even a Homing laser to lock in multiple captures. If you have extra time on the countdown clock, there are hidden mini games to try. Find bread to put in the toaster, play a puzzle, load laundry in the washing machine or play basketball. The added hunts help in the Replay value.

There is also a create your own custom level. Not new rooms, but add objects and creatures in an empty room. This adds a new dimension to any level, throw in extra Cookie bait or make it harder with more furniture in the way.

An unusual different game for the Wii collection. 8)

If you like the "Pokemon Collect Them All" then yes! I am loving the control aspect, opening doors with a twist of the wrist. Can't wait till I can start tossing cars and houses! :lol:

That was one of my first wii games. It's all right for one of the earliest titles on the system.
