Nintendo certainly took the cries of fans into consideration when they said last year's keynote ignored the hardcore gamer. More or less every game they announced this year seemed as if it was aimed directly at people who have been long dedicated to Nintendo since far before the Wiimote was even an idea in someone's mind. Cheers, Nintendo!

One game we only got a brief glimpse at was Rock N' Roll Climber, which challenges the player to use the Wiimote, nunchuk and balance board to "climb" a virtual wall. Once you are able to scale the entire wall, you grab a guitar and rock out. Wait ... what?

We know literally nothing else about this WiiWare title other than this scarse info, but now that it's been formally announced I expect we'll hear more very soon. Very odd, Nintendo. Not sure what to think just yet, but last time I checked the last thing I want to do after rockclimbing is crank out some jams on the electric guitar. Maybe if I take steroids first.

Have you played Rhythm Doctor?

How have I missed Rhythm Doctor? We gave it a brief mention last year, but I guess I missed that. The first I heard of it was last week at GDC. Walking past the IGF booth, I saw a guy with headphones on, bobbing his head while mashing a huge button. Curious, I walked over. I saw an on-screen cardiograph and a little samurai bobbing its little head. I was hooked from there. more

World of Tanks in 2014: Mobile MMO, new PC engine, console updates coming

I met with Wargaming boss Victor Kislyi last week in a dark, quiet, private meeting room on the GDC expo floor on an early morning following what was probably the biggest party of the week. The chief executive looked surprisi...more
