Zombii Attack

02-13-2012

When you go to the store and buy a pet rock, a fake piece of poo, or a movie called L3GiT-Sh*theads The Movie, you shouldn't go home with your purchase expecting much fun upon your arrival. That's the kind of game Zombii Atta...

Xenoblade Chronicles

04-04-2012

Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...

World of Goo

10-17-2008

Gone are the days when owning your favorite game music required spending exorbitant amounts of money on a Japanese import. I say good riddance (though I still cherish my old Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack CD). These days, s...

Viral Survival

08-11-2010

Viral Survival was released on WiiWare back in May. If you take a look at your wall calendar, you'll notice that it is currently the month of August. That is, of course, if you've remembered to keep track of the days. Otherwi...

Vampire Crystals

03-16-2013

The rare act of generosity aside, support for WiiWare has been reduced to almost nothing, leaving the platform to shuffle along until the earth swallows it up. How fitting then that one of its few releases in recent months wo...

Tournament of Legends

07-04-2010

You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage, Eternal C...

Toribash

07-20-2010

Do you know Toribash? It has existed as a free-to-play game for a while now on Mac and PC, and it even came to WiiWare several years ago. The turn-based, muscle micromanagement fighter starring Vectorman's cousins may now ga...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

11-19-2011

Parents can be really awesome when it comes to cake. I remember for a birthday long ago, my mom made me a prehistoric landscape cake populated by dinosaurs, rough terrain, boulders, trees, and an erupting volcano. I thought ...

The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony

10-24-2011

This past Friday night, I had the distinct pleasure of attending The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony at the beautiful Pantages Theater in Hollywood. To say I was looking forward to it is a vast understatement. I am ...

The Last Story

08-14-2012

The Last Story's journey to North America was certainly a long one, but it looks like this tale has a happy ending. XSEED has announced that the celebrated Mistwalker RPG is now the most successful title in their eight-year h...

Tales of Elastic Boy - Mission 1

09-21-2010

When I first saw the trailer for Tales of Elastic Boy, my mind jumped to LocoRoco. With his rounded body and rabbit-ear antennae, the main character was a dead ringer for a bubbly, bouncy LocoRoco. With a fascination for one ...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

03-08-2008

How classy can one video game theme be? Just ask the Triforce Quartet, the dapper gentlemen captured performing the Super Smash Bros. Brawl theme here. It's sweet, sweet music to my ears, and I surmise it will be to you...

Super Mario Galaxy 2

05-23-2010

Oh, you cuh-RAYzay hackers! What magic will you perform next? Some rosy-cheeked tinkerers have decided to hack the data for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to create a suite of custom levels called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5. The hack isn'...

Sonic Colors

11-13-2010

While Sonic the Hedgehog has become quite famous for a string of terrible games over the past ten years, that's only really true in terms of home console output. Hyperbole states that we haven't had a good Sonic game since So...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

10-17-2011

We are so used to waiting insufferably long periods of time for Japanese games to be localized and brought out West that we often imagine Japan as this floating island of privilege and good fortune. How easily do we forget th...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

12-11-2009

No weapons? Wii waggle? And a "re-imagining" of the first Silent Hill game is what they're calling this? The combination sounds like Silent Hill: My Worst Nightmare, and I don't mean that in a good way. Boy, was I ever wrong....

Rhythm Heaven Fever

02-13-2012

What does it take for a game to be universally enjoyable? That's the question most game developers would love to be able to answer, but it's easier said than done. My guess is that it comes down to exploiting the medium for w...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

01-27-2010

At the time of this writing, I have just finished No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle after a 16-hour marathon play through, with occasional breaks to nap and go to the bathroom. This is not the best way to go about playing ...

Namco Museum Megamix

11-18-2010

Let it not be said that Namco Bandai is afraid of a re-release. Namco Museum Megamix isn't just a re-release -- it's a re-release of a compilation of re-releases! An updated version of Namco Museum Remix, which was first rele...

MotoHeroz

10-25-2011

Late in the Wii's life, Trials developer RedLynx released MotoHeroz on the console, which was similar to the legendary motorcycle platformer, but a bit simpler and more focused on party style multiplayer. The following year, ...

Michael Jackson: The Experience

12-03-2010

There's nothing like a celebrity death to make some free money for those left behind, and Ubisoft was the lucky company with the videogame rights after Michael Jackson popped off this mortal coil. Michael Jackson: The Experie...

Mega Man 9

09-24-2008

Capcom has just announced a mini-sale for Street Fighter X Tekken content and Mega Man 9 and 10, as well as the release of those DmC costumes I mentioned a while back. The SFxT costumes have a full range in terms of pricing, ...

Mario Party 9

03-31-2012

"Another Mario Party? Good grief. Is there really any way this game could give us something we haven't already gotten from the Mario Party series? Is there going to be any reason to buy this game over the seven other Mar...
