File this under capital N for "Not as exciting as it sounds". My first thoughts when I read the message from Nintendo in my Wii's inbox was: Sweet mother of Jesus! A demo! I'll be playing Corruption tonight!

Then my hopes deflated when I realized it was just two low-res movies that looked like enlarged youtube videos.

Interesting in that it is the first time Nintendo has actually let us download a preview for a game directly onto our Wiis. Hopefully, there will be a lot more of this, including for virtual console games. The horrible quality didn't do much for me, but Nintendo dribbles out so little to us that I was kind of happy just to get anything.

The preview page promises two more video updates on August 13th.

To the sound of crickets apparently.

The publisher 505 Games announced that they've agreed on a deal for Office Create to develop the sequel to the popular casual game.

Remember that really fun time when we broke 8 virtual eggs over that fake bowl to make cookies we couldn't eat on our television? Me neither.

Here's a video of me playing the first Cooking Mama game. NSFW.

Since everyone around seems to have Metroid fever, myself included, I thought I'd post this little game that mashes up Mega Man with Samus Aran's old stomping grounds.

This might be old news to most people, seeing as how I remember first playing it around a year ago. But it was fun to revisit during my rampage through all the old Metroids, spiritually preparing myself for August 27th when that atomic bomb of joy named Corruption gets dropped.

You can finally use your Mega Buster arm cannon on a Skree.

Sure it's a little early to get started, but this year's holiday season is utterly mindblowing in its video game line up. I live in an expensive city, where you're practically forced to valet park during a trip to McDonald's. My night job as a janitor on David Hasselhoff's beach resort does not pay as much as one would expect. This often leaves me turning to friends and family as the main suppliers for my favorite addiction: collecting and playing video games. Each holiday season and birthday is a huge jackpot for me. I'm very blessed to have such generous people in my life. If any of them are reading this, I've saved you all the hassle of doing any research. Please preorder the following titles for me immediately. Yes, all of them. In return for your kindness, I will continue being the perfect son, friend, coworker, husband, grandson, kissing cousin, or midnight gay-lover-on-the-D.L. that you all adore.

Divide and conquer, guys. I'm sure if you split this up among yourselves, each of you will be able to find an affordable chunk of games to purchase me. Remember that cute way I smile when you buy me something?

What about the rest of you? Anyone have a list less Wii-centric than mine? Are you buying all of these on release date or are you hitting up Mom and Pop?

Prepare yourself for MAXIMUM YUCKS when these dudes get zapped into Mike Tyson's Punch-Out.

I couldn't really tell if this had been shown before. Many apologies if it has.

These guys have a great website with tons of funny and pretty damn NSFW videos. With names like "Robot Dreams" and "Butt Train USA", how can you go wrong?

Sorry for the dip into blue material, but it's worth a glance if you need some yucks. Imagine pre-TV, dirty Stella skits, except about robots and video games.

Tomorrow I'll be interviewing Jorge Garcia, the fine man who plays Hurley on LOST, in an exclusive conversation I plan on publishing here in the Destructoid C-blogs.

We'll be chatting briefly about the show LOST and the upcoming UBISOFT video game. Naturally, both of our lives are governed by ravagingly furtive and watchful chain chomps of NDAs. There will be a little bit of shurking and jiving on both sides as we avoid their vice like grip.

Admittedly, that secrets headline was definitely a cheap attention grabber. But I'd like to offer you the chance at having your burning question asked of Jorge when I talk with him tomorrow morning. He's apparently a big video game fan himself, so I intend to talk him up about that. If you've got questions of a more casual nature, shoot 'em off and I'll try to pick the most intelligible and appropriate ones to ask him.

Example of bad questions I won't be asking:

What is Jacob? Are they in purgatory? What's the black cloud?

Example of a question I might ask:

Do you own a puppy? What's your favorite SFII character?

Let me know guys, and I'll do my best.
