Nyko’s Wii Guitar Hero controller hits shelves
Nyko is shipping the first third-party Wii Guitar Hero controller. Nerds and wannabe rockers everywhere can celebrate. Turns out it’s in the shape of a Telecaster. Just like the official guitar/controller, the Wiimote slips inside of it.

It will cost you about $50, which is about $10 cheaper than the Activision Les Paul. The white version includes black and pink pickguards, the blonde edition comes with black and white.

Wii Crossbow with laser sight & ping pong ball tip

Wii Crossbow with laser sight & ping pong ball tip
We have a virtual catalog of Wii accessories in the archive, but this is the only one that looks like it could be used by a Ninja standing on top of a tall building. Of course, at night, the white color would probably give you away, but you’re a Ninja, just lose yourself in the shadows.

I’m not sure why they felt the need to have a ping-pong ball on the end, I guess they felt it looked too cool otherwise. A laser sight is included to make sure you beat all your high scores. It will cost you $28.

Inflatable Wii accessory kit deflates your dignity

Inflatable Wii accessory kit
We’ve seen our share of Wii accessories. They range from awesome to completely bizarre. This inflatable combat set, for example is bizarre. Who in their right mind is going to suffer the humiliation of using inflatable weapons while playing a Wii game?

You can try your best to beat Zelda and get involved in the game, but you will only be distracted by the huge clumsy sack of air in your hand. Oh, and the laughter from those who love you nearby. Still, if you like inflatible gaming, you can get the kit for $25.78. Maybe your Blow up doll can finally join in on the Wii fun, while you’re at it.

Wii FreeLoader: region-free gaming without mods

Wii FreeLoader
Here’s a freeloader you’ll be happy to have living with you. It won’t eat your food, hog the remote, or even sit around smoking weed like a slacker, while your at work. No, this is the kind of freeloader we like. Apparently, they have been working on this for awhile, and now you can finally have your own region-free enabler for the Wii for only $19.99. Wii FreeLoader allows you to play any GameCube or Wii game from any region on your Wii. Just stick the FreeLoader disc into the Wii, let it do it’s thing, eject the disc and stick in the title you want to play.

PEGA SportGage Wii pedometer

PEGA SportGage Wii pedometer
PEGA SportGage Times Recorder works just like a pedometer. It will record how much you move when you play your favorite Nintendo Wii games and it can reach to 9,999. It’s powered by a button cell battery. So if you actually enjoy using your Wii for exercise, you might want one of these. Although you certainly don’t need this device to tell you that you are getting a workout.

For instance I know damn well that I’m working out while playing Mario & Sonic at The Olympics, because right now my arms are killing me and I get winded during the longer events. (Games did not used to be so much work) Still, if this appeals to you, and you feel like you need a little incentive, get one for $11.13. But what’s with the bone design? You know your dog is going to eat this right?

13 Wii Wiimote weapon accessories

13 Wii Wiimote weapon accessories
We’ve come across our share of Wii accessories, some cool, some odd, all entertaining. So we thought we’d make a list of some of the stranger Wiimote gadgets and celebrate this odd gaming phenomenon. So here’s a list of some of our favorite Wii items Wii either wish for or wish didn’t exist, in no particular order. The Wii sure has brought some strangeness to gaming.

The Wii phone a step closer to reality

Wii phone
We told you about the possibility of a Wii phone awhile back, but now thanks to one clever fellow, we may be one step closer. It’s a combination of a Wiimote and a DoCoMo cellphone all slapped together with geek love.

Maybe this will make Nintendo rush one to market sometime soon, but I doubt it. The wrist strap is a nice touch. Just in case you get a call that requires you to want to throw the thing. This is one phone that would give the iPhone some competition. Needless to say we love this phone and want one yesterday.

Nyko releases wireless Wii Nunchuck adapter

Posted in Wii Accessories by Reuben Drake on January 30th, 2008

Nyko wireless adapter for the Wii NunchuckEarlier this month during CES 2008 Nyko announced a wireless Nunchuck controller for the Wii. The Nunchuck had the wireless built in and a small adapter attached to the bottom of the Wiimote to connect them, giving you cord-free gaming action for about $30.

Now Nyko has taken into account the fact that many Wii owners already have the Nunchuck controller and really don’t need another. For this Nyko is now launching the Wireless Adapter for the Wii Nunchuck. This adapter runs on two AA’s and connects to the bottom of the Nunchuck remote, wrapping up the cord around it. A wireless adapter connects to the bottom of the Wiimote and lets you now use your existing Nunchuck and rid yourself of the cord in between. You can now completely perfect your arm-flailing windmill style of boxing without the risk of choking yourself or others, but of course there is still the risk of hitting them.

Nintendo wii remotes get color

Wiimotes get colorful
It was only a matter of time. After the initial success of any Nintendo product there follows a plethora of neat and nauseating colors upchucked onto the market. That time is at hand once again. There’s still no official word from Nintendo on anything but white Wii-motes, but now there is a third-party option for those of you bored with the standard white.

One of the first companies to offer a third-party substitute for the Wii-mote is Snakebyte. They are calling them Riimotes. They appear to look very close to the authentic Wii-motes, with the button design styles a bit different. The first models will be available either in a glossy black or a bright purple. Bright purple? Yuck! Maybe if you are playing a My Little Pony game…They should assault your senses in early February.

Wii 18 in 1 sports pack

Wii 18 in 1 sports pack
As if there weren’t enough Wiimote add ons, with light sabers and fishing rods and the like, now with the 18 in 1 sports pack, you’ll have one for every occasion.

This 18-in-1 Wii Sports accessory kit comes with a pair of tennis rackets, a steering wheel, pool cue, golf club, baseball bat, a joypad holster and myriad other add-ons for your console. The package also includes silicon covers for your controllers, a stand for your console and even a cooling fan. You get everything but the kitchen sink, and they may even offer that soon should they release some dish washing game.

Camy Light Sword Wiimote Holsters For Jedi Action

Posted in Wii,Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2008

Camy Light Sword Wiimote Holsters
Would be Jedis of the Wii variety now have another weapon at their disposal. Camy’s Pro Gear Wii Light Swords are similar to this lightsaber attachment we told you about in November, but with a strange off center saber.

They are colored plastic Wiimote holders available in three “ultra bright” colors. If you wish to instill not fear but laughter, you can flip a switch and light up the night sky with your dorky laser blade. The swords are slated for a May/June release, with no word on price just yet. You can always just settle for having a light saber lamp nearby too.

Metallic Nintendo Wii Machine Gun

Nintendo Wii Machine Gun
Another day, another Wii accessory. In fact, I am now making it a point to chronicle every Wii thing available for your enjoyment. If the Shark gun didn’t sink it’s teeth into your wallet, and the 8 in 1 Wii weapon kit didn’t give you enough weapons for in-game maximum Carnage, maybe this metallic Wii Machine gun is more up your alley.

It will transform your Wiimote and Nunchuk into a silver machine gun, detailed in black. The Wii Machine Gun measures 11.81 x 4.96 x 1.65 inches, weighs 10.86 oz and is available from DealExtreme for $16.54.

Speakers that look a Wii bit familiar

Wii Speakers
Now that you’ve finally found a Wii and bought a couple of cool games, it’s time to shell out some money on a butt-load of accessories. What do I recommend? I’m glad you asked. I hear the Wii Bowie Knife is a pretty nifty accessory, and they say the dog leash attachment makes it feel like you are really walking a dog even if it is just a wiimote and some string. The Wiimote rotary phone attachment even makes it feel like you are making authentic In-game calls. But I’d have to say that one of the neater Wii inspired items are these speakers from Fenda Tech.

The subwoofer looks like an oversized Wii while the speakers look like Wii Nunchuks! The system “intensifies your gaming with a soundfield that surrounds you.” When it’s available later this year, it will cost you around $50.

Wii Fit coming to North America May 20th

Posted in News,Wii,Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2008

Wii Fit coming to North America May 20th
Since its release on December 1st in Japan, Wii Fit has become a phenomenon in that country, selling over a million units and virtually completely selling out, much like the Wii itself. Sales of the game have done well, but a general upswing in Wii sales has also resulted, with other titles suddenly flying off the shelves. But will it be a hit here in Lard-Ass North America?

Originally the game was supposed to be released in the first quarter of this year, but Nintendo was not even able to meet the supply in Japan. But now, with a May 20th release, we of the North American continent will hopefully soon be shedding some pounds and getting fitter.

CES 2008

Nyko Perfect Shot Wii pistol

Posted in CES 2008,Nyko,Wii,Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 9th, 2008

Nyko Perfect Shot Wii gun
Along with Nyko’s new wireless Nunchuk controller, the company is showing off their Perfect Shot Wii gun. There have been some complaints about the Wii Zapper being very clumsy, especially in the trigger area, so this should be a great alternative.

It’s very reminiscent of the original Wii zapper in some ways and also looks and feels more like a real gun, with a decent grip. The Wiimote goes right on top, it has an easy trigger and shoots well.
