Game & Wario

Game & Wario will contain 16 minigames

New info has been revealed, finally

At yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation in Japan, Nintendo revealed a bit more information about Game & Wario, stating that it'll have sixteen separate minigames to choose from.

The game is said to have a mix of fully fledged minigames and microgames, which distinguishes it from the WarioWare series. Whether or not this franchise continues or replaces WarioWare is yet to be seen, but let's just say I'm anxious to see what it can bring to the table.

The presentation showed off a bit of "Fruit," which is a pretty neat whodunit style mystery game. One player, using the secrecy of the GamePad, has to blend in as an AI thief -- after a certain amount of time, the other players get to try and deduce who the burglar was using the GamePad themselves.

One neat aspect of this setup is that the other players don't actually have to play the game with a controller -- they just have to casually watch the screen from time to time.

Whenever the game actually does come out, be sure and check out my Wario Quest, as I'll fill out my impressions there.

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
