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 Wii Remote contr...

Study shows videogames can help create better surgeons

This isn't the first time that a scientific study has come up demonstrating the benefits that videogames can have on budding surgeons, and it surely won't be the last. It makes sense: spend time developing hand-eye coordination and fine-mot...

Skyward Sword controls: The future of the Zelda franchise

Keep on milking Robin Williams, Nintendo!

Okay, Nintendo. We get it. Robin Williams is a total videogame nerd who named his daughter after Princess Zelda. One thing, though... Zelda Williams isn't in this commercial! I don't want extreme closeups of Robin's creepy old man lips! Th...

Zelda and Robin Williams return in this Skyward Sword ad

Nintendo is riding the Princess Zelda / Zelda Williams connection to the bitter end, but I'm really not bothered. Robin Williams is a such a cartoon character in most everything he does, and his daughter is oh so lovely. More commercials, ...

The incredibly immersive world of Zelda: Skyward Sword

One thing I haven't really had a chance to get into in my last couple of previews of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is how much more immersive the entire world actually is compared to past Zelda games. In some ways, it's almost like pla...

The first dungeon of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

In our last look at The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, we were introduced to the floating city of Skyloft and Link's obstacles towards knighthood. We met Zelda again as we would meet any old friend, yet she was soon taken away; we were onc...

Don't be afraid of heights in Zelda: Skyward Sword

Seriously, I would just love living in the world of Skyward Sword. Look at how Link and Zelda just jump off the cliff without any fear. I don't know if I'd be able to trust the birds like that to catch me, but I guess I'd have no choice bu...

How many people will buy Wii Play: Motion?

If we're talking the Destructoid readership, I'm guessing the answer is "not too many." But still, I wonder how well Wii Play: Motion will sell with the general populace. The game certainly looks more imaginative than the original Wii Play...

ExerBeat is a fun exercise game for the Wii

After the Kinect came out, I never thought I'd go back to the Wii for my exercise needs until I tried out ExerBeat. The Wii exclusive is fun and the onscreen prompts showing you exactly how to do the moves you need to do are very helpful. ...

NPD says Red Steel 2 flopped, Ubisoft says maybe not

The NPD data for March is out, and it tells us that Red Steel 2 only sold 50K in its opening month. Not good, especially compared with other games that debuted in March (like God of War III, which sold over a million) and long standing Wii ...

Reggie says more Wii MotionPlus games on their way

I love the Wii. In fact other than Mr. Holmes, I think I might be the most ardent Wii supporter at Destructoid. My Wii is played just as often as my PS3 and 360 if not more, and not just when friends are over. I am a serious Wii gamer. I te...
