DSi Successor slated for late 2010

Their are multiple rumors around that a New Nintendo system will be coming in Late 2010. Most likely featuring nVidia graphics. If this is infact true, the new system should outperform the competition if correctly pulled off. Hopefully a new Nintendo TV Console is on its way, to replace the much underpowered Wii...

Lets hope that this means Nintendo is finally waking up, and realizing that they need to stop living in the past by basing their systems off 10 year old CPU's.

Wii System Update: 4.1

Wii Update

An update from Nintendo has arrived. Version 4.1. This is a small update that fixes some changes for better system performance. The changes are:

Accessory Updates:

  • A bug has been fixed so that you are not forced to watch the “how to use MotionPlus” tutorial when you open a Wii Channel, WiiWare game, or Virtual Console title via SD Card Menu.


Despite the fact that Nintendo has said that any unauthorized materials will be removed, the system update actually leaves the homebrew software alone.


Estimated time: 23 sec. (If you have System Update 4.0), (depends on your internet connection).

Well everyone… it has finally happened. The Super MarioJr. Blog Tech Solutions blog is now officially launched!. You can now ask your questions and answers there.

Now, I did say that I was going to tell you who my helper would be… so I’m goina tell you… just one problem… two more people have just entered the team.

Well that’s even better now because now a lot of my burdens have gotten off my back. Yay! (By the way, Morgan was supposed to be the only one on the team but I decided to let them join in too.)

Well anyway here is the entire Super MarioJr. Blog Team!


Junior Name: Junior Riley

Gamer: Hardcore-based veteran

Favourite console: Wii

Favourite game: Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong

Position: Founder, Main Administrator




Hi. My name is Junior Riley. I am the Main Administrator and the Founder of Super MarioJr. Blog. Along side my friends: Morgan and Cad, as well as my brother, Samuel, we make up the Super MarioJr. Team.

I first started playing video games since I was around three years old. At that time I played all of the systems: NES, Game Boy, Game and Watch, N64, SNES, Game Boy Color… you name it! Then after I got my Game Boy Advance, I abandoned video games. But when I got my GameCube for Christmas, I was starting to play Nintendo again.

My first game after not using console video games for three years was Mario Party 7. Then came Super Smash Bros. Bros. Melee. Then Spyro. And then I got my Nintendo DS with Mario Kart DS. Eventually, I got a Wii. And the list goes on.

Right now my favourite console is the Wii. The reason is because the Wii attracts gamers from all ages. The Wii is also great for people who don’t have the classics consoles and want to relive the experience again. I don’t really have a favourite game. The reason is because, like most veteran gamers, we salute all games and treat them all with the same respect (but really, since Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong were the two games that I statue the most because they saved video games in the first place, those are my most favourite games.

I first started my blog when I was at a baseball game. I was at the VIP box along with a program that I participated with. I was talking to someone about the history of Nintendo and where Nintendo stands now. It took me about 20-25 minutes to complete the history of Nintendo from its birth in the late 19th century until now. They were so amazed about my knowledge for Nintendo that they told me to create a blog about Nintendo.

And, so it began. So, seven months and over 20 posts later, here I am. At first I was doing all of this alone. But now I’ve got three people to help me out: Morgan Figueiredo (Tech Support Administrator), Cad Morley (Main Executive Error Specialist-Super MarioJr. Blog), and my brother, Samuel Riley (Executive Error Specialist-Super MarioJr. Blog Tech Solutions). I got the best team in the world and they are irreplaceable.

I would like to thank everyone for supporting and encouraging me to continue making this blog possible. And, because of you, this blog has extended to another blog just for tech support questions and answers. I will still be running at the next blog but a lot the posts will be made by Morgan.

Once again, I would like to thank all of you. Because without you, there wouldn’t be Super MarioJr. Blog.

Some little tid bits about me are that I enjoyed playing Nintendo 64 as a little kinder which resulted in my favourite game being Super Mario 64. I personally love shooting, stealth, and strategic genres of video games.

I haven't been so much in the video game scene lately being all tied up in schoolwork but usually Junior suggests fantastic games to try. He will be happy to respond to comments and answer any questions.

Name: Samuel Riley

Gamer: Casual

Favorite console: Nintendo DS

Favorite game: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games

Position: Executive Error Specialist-Super MarioJr. Blog Tech Support


Hi. My name is Samuel Riley and I am working with my bro, Junior Riley. I am the Executive Error Specialist for Super MarioJr. Blog Tech Solutions.

I have been into video games since I was young. My first Nintendo console was the Game Boy Advance. After that I feel in love for Nintendo. I bought a lot of games for that system and I still play the games even though I beat them all.

My favourite console would be the Nintendo DS and my favourite game is Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. The reason is because I believe that the Nintendo DS improves on the original DS. It’s lighter, brighter, and longer than the original Nintendo DS.

I like a game that has athletic characterises-and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games meets those characterises. It has everything: challenging sports, legendary characters, single- and multi-card multiplayer, online leader boards... it’s all here.

I believe that you will love what my brother set up for you. I believe that Super MarioJr. Blog is very useful for all of your Nintendo needs.

-- Samuel

You can ask questions about your Wii-related problems, your Nintendo DS issues, and even your retro gaming-related questions. If you want to ask a question, just add a comment under this blog post or on a blog post in the tech support blog (as long as it is relevant… for example, if there is a blog post about syncing your Wii Remote and the solutions we have put up don’t work, then you just type in your problem there.

Well, Morgan, Cad, Samuel, and I are really excited to start so start reading and let the new era of Super MarioJr. Blog begin!
