Game Review

Race the Sun will, more often than not, kick your ass. It's one of those seemingly simplistic games at first glance, though once you start playing, you realize that it has a different agenda. It wants to suck you in, to keep you progressing, all the while making sure you're hand-eye coordination is at an all time high through some rather devious and punishing level design. I love...

Nintendo Download - 11/23/09: Download New BIT.TRIP Kicks, Speeding Karts, Magic Castles and More

I knew Nintendo loves me. You can thank me later, since you guys get to reap the benefits, too. In all seriousness, the original Super Mario Kart is now available on the Virtual Console for 800 Wii Points, just as promised. What more needs to be said? Well, maybe that in most circumstances, such a title would be all that we get on Virtual Console for the week, but not this time; it is joined by the original NES title A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia for 500 Wii Points as well. WiiWare is BIT.TRIPping with VOID for 600 Wii Points, while Harvest Moon: My Little Shop commands 1,200, the rather vague Little Tournament Over Yonder for 800, and a rare EC-rated game for 500 in Learning with the PooYoos: Episode 1. Finally, DSiWare has plenty to choose from, though five are Electroplankton titles at 200 DSi Points a pop. Those are accompanied by myNotebook: Blue, also 200, and Gameloft's Castle Of Magic for 500. Check out the press release after the cut for more details on each title. Read More

Joining it is Hudson Entertainment's latest effort, Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem, a Wii-styled shooter for one or two players and 500 Wii Points. The DSi is rolling in Domo-kun, as the iconic Japanese character surfaces in not one, not two, but five different titles, each for 200 DSiPoints. Choose from Crash-Course, Hard Hat, Pro-Putt, Rock-n-Roll, and White-Water Domo games. Finally, the Virtual Console does not go ignored, as Tecmo's Rygar hits the Virtual Console Arcade with Diskarmor spinning for 600 Wii Points.

Nintendo Reveals First- and Third-Party Holiday Lineup

Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring. "This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household." Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that. Hit the jump for the full press release and list of games that will become available. Read More

Electroplankton Soothing Japanese Ears via DSiWare Next Week

Were you one of the lucky gamers who managed to snag Electroplankton from its original limited release? Well, this news isn't for you. Nintendo has announced plans to re-release Electroplankton in bits and pieces via DSiWare in Japan. It will be broken into ten parts (one for each race of Electroplankton) and released over the next month or two. Tracy, Hanenbon, Nanocarp and BeatNES will be released on July 8th, with Rec Rec and Lumiloop following on the 22nd and Sun Animalcule, Luminarian, Marine Snow and Volvoice releasing some time in August. Each part will cost Japanese DSi owners 200 points (or $2), which means the full set will set them back 2000 points (or $20). Not bad, considering the full game was released for $50. The DSiWare version of Electroplankton hasn't been announced for North America, but you can probably expect to see it here eventually. Read More
