Review: Carnival Island

A year removed from the PlayStation Move's launch, one should expect that tech demos and minigame compilations would be out of the door to make way for the kind of genuinely rich experiences that were promised.  Carnival Island is a compilation of minigames that demonstrate the technology of the PlayStation Move.  Oh well. Same time next year?

I think I can hear my soul weeping.

Review: Go Vacation

A tropical resort paradise overrun by dead-eyed, single-minded creatures that vaguely resemble humans, there shambling movements parodying the utter lifelessness all around them. I am not talking about Techland's Dead Island. This is Go Vacation ... something far scarier.  For if there's one thing more numerous, tougher to kill, and infinitely more deadly than zombies, it's minigames.

The deep, meaningful tale of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One

I can't think of too many party-oriented games that feature anything resembling a cohesive story. Super Smash Bros. Brawl comes to mind with the Subspace Emissary campaign, but that wasn't really much of a party. I also...

Three Pac-Man Party mini-games for you to 'meh' about

Go on and do it. I don't think anybody would blame you. Pac-Man Party is, conceptually, something that should be somewhat painful to consider. Another collection of mini-games for the Wii -- a market which inexplicably ...

Destineer has some Christmas minigames gift for you

Man, let me tell you what I did NOT want for Christmas is a collection of holiday themed minigames, but you know, you say "minigames" and there's someone just waiting to make a Wii game for you. I guess I should be ...

Ninja Captains contains cats, minigames, tomfoolery

I love colorful games, but sometimes there's a line between vivid and bright and just simply too much color. Look at that screenshot from Ninja Captains up there, for example. It's like your eyes just vomited rainbows, isn't ...

2K brings more minigame madness to Wii with Baseball Blast!

(The exclamation point, as you can see, is actually in the title. Believe me, I’m no more excited than you are about this.)Wii owners like minigame collections, right? I mean, Carnival Games has somehow sold over 3 mill...

Sony cat Toro finally headed stateside in Toro! Let's Party!

You may not know it, but in Japan, Sony has a mascot, much like what Mickey Mouse is to Disney. Chances are you've seen this little white cat before -- maybe as a PSN avatar or on a piece of merchandise. His name's Toro Inoue...

Review: Let's Tap

I was fortunate enough to have a good friend pass me a copy of the Let's Tap soundtrack almost immediately after its Japanese release, and for months it was by far the most often-played CD in my car. Having been a fan of rhyt...

Best Buy exclusive Let's Tap pad freaking sucks

Hey, you know that exclusive Limited Edition version of Let's Tap that Best Buy has? Yeah? It sucks. All you get is an extra piece of paper with the game's logo. I know Jonathan Holmes brought this up the other night when he ...

Check out new screens and art for Hudson's Help Wanted

I've been interested in Help Wanted ever since Hamza's preview of the title, which taught me that the game was actually about taking on weird jobs in order to earn money so you can buy items from the Home Shopping Network. Th...

Yikes! New 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix screenshots look scary

When we first saw screenshots of the upcoming 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix for Nintendo DS, we thought it looked like a party in your pants. And we felt that this game of minigames was a pretty good value at $20, or less than $...
