New Wii System menu homebrew hack

Features of this hack include:

Removing the health warning screen
Region free Wii and Gamecube games
Built in "rescue mode"
Removing background music

It's not released yet, but should be soon. Finally I will be able to play my imported Gamecube games again. Even nicer to be able to boot all imports straight from the Disc Channel, with no need to boot any homebrew.

I expect custom background music can't be too far away either.

Review by LewieP

This is a Korg Synth for the DS.

I was tempted to end this review here actually, there is very little else to say.

Here's a list of artists that use similar models of Korg Synths:

The Prodigy, William Orbit, The Dandy Warhols, Foal, Klaxons, Aphex Twin, Ladytron.

So you'll be in good company.

Honestly, I am not hugely talented at this kind of thing. I am basically completely new to it, but just spending a few solid hours has compelled me to learn more about how to use synths. Thanks to 'The Reverend Dr Galactus' for linking me to this pretty great starting point.

I have had great fun with it, and I can only imagine what someone with more knowledge and skill at this kind of thing can put out. I expect there will be some insane concerts of people using multiple consoles all over youtube in the coming months.

If you would like to try out a pretty full featured synthesizer for a fraction of the regular cost, then this is more than likely to sort you out. Grab whatever cable you need to hook it up to your recording/playback device (the DS speakers really don't do it justice) and you have a pretty killer set up.

It is almost entirely in English, just the manual and a few error messages in Japanese I believe (I haven't encountered them myself), and this is no doubt cheaper than the UK price will be, that is if it even gets a release here.

I am picking up a cable to record straight to PC, so I might have some recordings to show off in the coming weeks, and I'm going to see if I can convince my mates' band (New Art Riot) to do some collaborations.
