Review: Sin & Punishment: Star Successor

By all rights, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor shouldn't exist. It's the sequel to a game that's only been released outside of Japan on the Wii's Virtual Console, one of the least popular download services in the home co...

Never enough: The MP5 sub-machine gun Wii controller

Yup, this is a thing that is happening. Pocket-Lint went to a trade show in Hong Kong where they spotted this 1:1 scale Heckler & Koch MP5 sub-machine gun. Unlike all of the other plastic gun shells out there, this gun ac...

Who is this mysterious lady in Resident Evil: DC?

Capcom sent over a massive amount of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles assets and one image in particular is leaving me puzzled. Who is this mysterious woman? Darkside Chronicles is based on Resident Evil 2 and Code: Ver...

Bang Bang Kids is a horrible name for a game

Yup, Bang Bang Kids is a real WiiWare title and it's sure to make Chad Concelmo and Colette Bennett pee themselves with laughter on the next RetroforceGO! So the name is pretty bad, right? Well it gets worse. Bang Bang Kids i...

EA Showcase 08: Hands-on with NERF N-Strike for the Wii
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

NERF N-Strike is easily going to have the best peripheral ever made for a game. You will actually get a real working NERF gun that also doubles as the gun cradle for the Wiimote. There will be a removable one-shot NERF launcher where the Wiimote fits, and the NERF gun is even designed to accept the MotionPlus and allows for the Nunchuk to plug in for easy access.

There will be a story for the single-player mode, designed in a Saturday morning cartoon fashion, where the main character joins an elite NERF group and fights with NERF guns against robots. This is a kids' game after all, so there won't be any humans that are yelling out horrible one-liners to shoot at.

The game will support up to four players with around 24 events to play. I played a game with Emily from Ripten where we had to shoot as many balls as we could. Each time we hit a ball, a machine hanging above the stage would paint the ball your team's colors until all the balls were destroyed. 

Players will have access to 25 guns, 12 of which are real NERF guns and 13 of which are brand new NERF guns designed for N-Strike. I played with a handgun, an automatic rifle and a sniper rifle during my playtime.

The game basically feels like Time Crisis, but with NERF guns. The main downside to all of this is that the gun and game package will cost $59.99, and the gun by itself will go for $14.99. That's a great price point for the gun, but no arcade-style on-rails shooter is worth more than $45. Both the gun and game will be out in your local videogame section and toy section this November 4 for the Wii.

Nyko's Perfect Shot Wii gun is ideal for pistol whipping

If you haven't cared for the style of any of the previous guns available for the Wii, the Perfect Shot from Nyko may appeal to your baser instincts. Presenting a more compact body than the Zapper, the gun allows you to comfor...

Will the Wii Zapper be the next victim of the anti-gun movement?

When I look at the picture above, I see nothing more than a bunch of plastic posing as a frame for your Nintendo Wii's Nunchuck and Wiimote. Come to think of it, the game (Link's Crossbow Training) Nintendo decided to include...

Shoot half naked chicks with a Dolphin gun in Ghost Squad
