Sometimes, no - a lot of the time, I crack myself up.

Carry on...

I have 4. Apparently, the new Wiimotes ship condommed. So, I will likely have 2 extra.

Just sos you know, I ordered mine on the first day they were orderable, and still haven't received them. I'm not sure when this was, but it feels like twenty years ago. Maybe hobo can tell us?

I got mine in about a month I think (I ordered them on the first day), but I have no idea what the shipping time is over there in the US of A.

Link Plushie!

I placed an order the first day as well and didn't receive them. I waited forever. Then I found out that anyone who tried to order them within the first couple of days of availability needed to re-order them because of a glitch on Nintendo's site.

Try going back to the site and re-ordering them. It's likely your order was never processed. I did this and received mine a couple weeks later.

Gift giving channel may be available today in the US. Not sure about Europe though.

Also today on the virtual console we should be getting:
Pokemon Snap (N64)
Ghosts & Goblins (NES)
Baseball Stars 2 (Neo Geo)

Well, it's not a gift-giving channel, it's just a new button in the Shop Channel.

Don't think it's come to Europe yet, but then I haven't checked either.

That's neat. Anybody know whether Pokemon Snap retains its feature that we saw that lets you save pictures to the message board?

This Wednesday's XBL Arcade games will be Arkadian Warriors and GripShift, for 800 Points each.

There's a Burnout Paradise demo hitting on Thursday. Here's a map of that demo.

Game Head is shutting down, and will be replaced on January 25th by GameTrailers TV.

Dragon Quest Swords is coming to the US on February 26th.

That's a long time. Thanks for the info, everyone.

I got an order confirmation, so i know they got it, they said they'd send me another e-mail when they had shipped and i still haven't gotten that.

i ordered about two or three weeks ago at this point, i think.

Anyway, not a huge deal.

And on the lighter side of the news...

My Wii died! Then came back to life! Must have had a power interruption at the house, because my clocks were all off when I got home. My wife went to play some GHIII, and the Wii wouldn't power on. Not only that, but the little power LED was off. Not red, just off.

Of course, either my warranty is expired or was very close to (I think I got an extra month for registering or something). But, I read in an FAQ to unplug everything, wait a minute, then plug in the power. It did the trick...

Couple of Wii updates just went live:

Wii Shop Channel:
- New menu icon, and some other minor changes
- Ability to Gift games and channels to friends (region-locked)
- Users can check updates from the Wii Menu

Photo Channel*:
- Changes mp3 playback to aac playback
- Adds option to set a photo as the icon on the Wii Menu

*Optional update. You can roll back to version 1.0 by deleting it from the Channels area of the Memory menu. Consoles shipping with the update preinstalled cannot do this.

Pokémon Snap is now available in Europe too.

The Video Marketplace is also now available in Europe and Canada.

EDIT: The Halo 3 Heroic Map Pack is now on Xbox Live for 800 Points. It's free in the spring for those who don't feel like paying.

It is stupid to switch MP3 with AAC, but I do like the new feature to set the menu icon to whatever you want.

New Halo maps are ... okay, I guess. This game just isn't the same anymore after playing CoD4 a lot lately.

Yeah, I did go there. But I'm sure most here would agree with that statement. :)
