Nintendo DLC: Faxanadu, a fire place, and more

Recommended Videos

I can’t be the only one who thinks of the 1980’s musical film, Xanadu, when someone mentions Faxanadu. Right? Anyone? Guys? Well, it’s out on Virtual Console this week. Faxanadu, not Xanadu. Although I’d totally buy that.

If you haven’t tried it out already, check out the demo for Rage of the Gladiator. It’s like Punch Out!!, but you beat up all kinds of crazy mythical creatures. It’s pretty full-featured for a WiiWare title, too, and gets super tough as you progress. Worth checking out, for sure.

See anything you’re interested in this week? I know what I’m interested in: a Xanadu party at my place this weekend!
