Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Wii Easter Egg

If you have a Wii and download the sneak peak of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption , there's an easter egg. A pretty boring one actually, but still.

When you're at the screen to play the movies, click the little blinking light with the 'A' button on the Wiimote. It's this light blue one in the upper corner of the window as shown here.

On the next screen, hold down the A button on the Wiimote and wave it around. You'll start to see a picture uncovered. Once you have a lot of it uncovered, click 'Reveal'.

There's only two at this point, but Aaron had a bit of fun revealing the complete picture.

FINALLY! Something to get excited about! The ANTIBACTERIAL COLLECTION! I mean really, how about the "Clean Hands Collection" or the "Next To Godliness Collection".

I think this is from Bath and Bodyworks or one of those other 'Women Only' stores.

Aaron's Time Machine

Aaron had a broken rocket tail fin with 2 fins of the four broken off. I said to keep it for building some sort of machine. He decided he'd build a time machine. I also gave him some battery powered mini Christmas lights.

Quotable quotes:

In reference to the blinking Christmas lights: "Oh yeah! Everyone time machine has that!"

"We need something to make a portal out of!"
"Mama, don't turn this off or it will make the port stop spinning and we might be trapped in an age!"

I told Aaron to watch out for the time cops, because it would be an unlicensed time machine. "There's no such thing as time cops!"

He also needed some 'electricity to hook it up with'.

The CD he put in the broken portable DVD player was the 'time DVD'.

I told him he needed to test it with the cat in case he had a polarity wrong and it turned him inside out. "We can't do that to a pet! Let's put mommy or sissy in it!"

And they say TV rots your brain cells.

M-16 Super Nintendo Trainer M.A.C.S.

They had one this past weekend at Tinker AFB, OK. Pretty cool, but I've never seen them use it.

It's an M-16A2 hooked up to a Super Nintendo so you can practice basic riflemanship.

I shot 45 out of 50, tied for the highest score in the class, but it was so hot my heart wasn't in it. That's down a little from my score of 47 last time.

Read more about M.A.C.S. here.

According to that article it was specially built, but some papers I read on the internet say it's a de-mil'd M16. Why build a special one? Use a real one for the same weight. Also, it's optical, not a laser.
