The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series photo
The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The developers at Toys For Bob are back in the saddle with Skylanders Trap Team, the next entry in their hit toys-meet-videogame franchise. This time the hook involves you capturing villains and enslaving brainwashing reforming them to work for you. Same overall formula where you use Skylanders both old and new, but now you have the aid of all the bad guys.

This means a new Portal of Power, plus a whole new set of toys specifically designed for capturing the villains.

New Wii Remote Plus controller styled like Peach

Nintendo did a nice job with their new Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus controller. It's Peach pink and has some colored accents to make you think of Mushroom Kingdom's royalty. It sort of makes a set with the Mario and Luigi W...

Dragon Quest X has sold 1 million copies

Square Enix's Dragon Quest X has sold 1 million copies since release, says producer Yosuke Saito. That's good news, but I wonder if they expected this console MMO to do better than this, sooner than this.  The Wii a...

Nintendo ending online services for DS and Wii titles photo
Nintendo ending online services for DS and Wii titles

[Update: Nintendo of America, as well as Australia, have also announced the end of the Wi-Fi Connection service. Looks like it's across the board.]

Nintendo of Japan has announced that they're ending all DS and Wii online services for games that took advantage of the capability. You'll still be able to access things like the DSi and Wii Shop channels, Hulu, YouTube, and access the internet via the respective browsers. You just won't be able to play any games online with others anymore.

The Nintendo website has a giant list of what games will lose their online access. Games such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii Music, Mario Kart Wii, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Tetris DS, Pokemon Pearl, Pokemon Black/White, and Metroid Prime Hunters, are just some of the higher profile titles Nintendo has laid out.

The Wi-Fi Connection service, which originally launched back in November 2005, will come to an end on May 20, 2014. We've reached out to Nintendo of America to see if this is just Japan, or if it's a worldwide discontinuation.

This week, Nintendo updated their Club Nintendo digital offerings to add Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Although it's technically been a part of the Wii Virtual Console since 2008, many people wanted to know how it held up, and if it really was worth of the hype it's gotten from fans.

There's no two ways about it -- it's absolutely worth it. Legend of the Seven Stars is one of the most entertaining and innovative role-playing games ever made.
