Wii Netflix not Loading Artwork? Reinstall Netflix Channel

I’ve had a problem with the Wii Netflix Channel for a long time now. The problem is artwork wasn’t getting loaded in. It was very spotty. Some artwork would load, others would not. After a useless customer support phone call, in which it was assumed my wifi was to fault, it dawned on me that I should try reinstalling the Netflix channel. Maybe they had released a version without telling anybody. And that was it. They had released a new version and I had no idea and I guess the old one was breaking down. So, if you you have Wii Netflix, and having trouble with artwork loading, then try deleting the channel and redownloading. Good luck!

Wii Sports Resort

By the time this blog is published, I’ll have been playing Wii Sports Resort for a few days. I’m already hooked on the Air Sports game.

I didn’t even know the game was launching July 26 but I happened to be at Best Buy exchanging a USB drive and I couldn’t figure out why there was a small line up before opening time.

As it turns out, I exchanged my USB drive and picked up a copy of Wii Sports Resort as well.

The new Wii Motion Plus wiimote add-on is interesting and does seem to translate real-time motions decently enough. Enough to make it fun anyway.

One thing I’ve already thought about is that the locale, the resort island, is actually a pretty decent place to host a sort of massively-multiplayer online environment. I’m thinking of something like Sony’s Home. It’s an interesting island with many, many cool spots and secrets. If Nintendo plays their cards right they could really hit something big in the online space for the casual market. If you’re reading this Nintendo…patent pending!

Here’s the E3 launch video to give you a better idea of what it’s all about…
