Let the old school gaming begin! Leading the pack of downloadable titles from Nintendo is Mega Man 10, a game that takes the long-popular mechanical hero back to his 8-bit roots. Including the classic 2D  NES gameplay & brutal difficulty, the developers have worked hard to create a new experience...

What? No Virtual Console releases? *sigh* Well, at least we will get some interesting WiiWare titles this week. GhostSlayer sounds like it could be fun, especially if you have a Wii Motion Plus (check out the trailer below). Mouse House catches my eye just from the “pick up & play” element...

So there it is. Phoenix Wright is finally taking WiiWare to trial. Believe it or not, I’ve never played a single Phoenix Wright game. Stop. Don’t say it. I’ve already been told I’m missing out. I just have a tough time investing in handheld titles since I honestly don’t...

Hmmmm….I don’t know about this. Although I certainly loved the first game on the NES, I can’t say I have a ton of faith that Blaster Master can make a come back, especially following the abysmal PSOne version. That’s not to say I won’t give this WiiWare release a shot. I’m...

This week, it’s all about the WiiWare! While Alex Kidd was alright at the time it came out, for me, it didn’t age well. So I’m not terribly interested in that sole Virtual Console release. But, WiiWare on the other hand, not only has the final chapter in the Tales of Monkey Island series...

Isn’t there already an Uno game on the Wii? I mean, Uno is pretty much everywhere these days. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Uno gameshow on Fox or NBC next fall. For the three of you who are upset that you don’t have Uno on your Wii, today is your lucky day as the seminal card game...

Now, I was one of the few folks I knew back then that never got into the whole Pilotwings phenomenon. Even though it impressed with displaying the technical abilities of the N64, that was pretty much where it stopped for me. With that said, I may go back & give it a shot now that it’s been...

Nintendo has given us the gift that will keep on giving this week, albeit a gift we have to buy for ourselves. Yep, we can now relive our neighborhood brawls just like they were as children. No, I don’t mean go grab your old baseball bat. These are gamers, remember? The N64 fan favorite Super Smash...

An exciting week for classics on the Virtual Console! First, a game I have many, many fond memories of: Blaster Master. Although they tried the resurrect the franchise on the first Playstation, nothing has been able to bring back the joy I had sitting there on a Saturday afternoon, munching on Cheez-its...

This week is another solid one from the Mario house.Not only do we get the first Harvest Moon title on WiiWare, but we get 2 fantastic Virtual Console games! Super Mario Kart will probably always be my favorite version of the franchise. I bet my buddies & I put more hours into it than any other SNES...

A very interesting week for Nintendo as not only did they launch New Super Mario Bros Wii yesterday, but they began dropping some demos of popular WiiWare titles as well as a new Pokemon title. Pokemon Rumble looks (I say looks because all I have is the description to go off of) like Pokemon meets Gears...

Color me surprised! For the first time in quite awhile the WiiWare offerings have impressed me more than the Virtual Console offerings this week. WiiWare is bringing Excitebike & Frogger to us while the Virtual Console has Wonder Boy III & Cybernoid. There’s no comparison! Anyway, here...

Prepare to spend some points this week as there are a couple of titles this week that should be on your list. First, chapter 3 from the Tales of Monkey Island episodic series is out. If you want classic point & click adventuring with the series staple humor, you can’t go wrong with Tales. The...

Quick question: Out of the three download categories from Nintendo, which one do you check out first? WiiWare, DSiWare, or Virtual Console? To be honest, I have been less than impressed with WiiWare. Sure, there are a few games there I like, but beyond that, I don’t pay it much attention. Since...

Nintendo is bringing us another nifty classic to the Virtual Console. I remember putting many hours into Revenge of Shinobi so I can’t wait to add this to my Wii & see if it still has that magic it had for me many years ago. The DSi is getting another Brain Age title. I’m curious how...
