Considering the low ratings NintendoLife (rightfully!) gave most of WiiWare, why not NintendoLife not make up (not necessarily for selling) a WiiWare game themselves, since they seem to know tons about good gaming!

(No, I am not angry, but rather curious. Also, I really would play a NintendoLife-made game!)

Reviewing a game and making a game are two very different tasks. And it's not peculiar to games. If a movie critic rates a movie low, it's not because he thinks he could do better (well, not necessarily :D). Analyzing a creative work requires different skills than those needed to actually create the work.

Also, I think they tend to rate games too highly if anything! :P (Not that it matters.)

They are completely different yes, but i think that would be interesting and potentially funny to see happen, though if it did ever happen, it would be totally awesome. I've tried experimenting with Game engines myself recently. Nothing concrete has gone through yet but still.

Shotgun working on the script! (I have no artistic talent whatsoever)

Ant would have to code the whole thing, that's for sure!

Hopefully Corbie doesn't review this hypothetical game or we'll have to face the embarrassment of Nintendo Life rating their own game only a 7. :D

Nah; he may rate the game a 10, since this game assumes that he worked on it (since all of NintendoLife would work on thereof).

It doesn't take a plumber to see when a pipe is leaky, it doesn't take a nondeterministic turing machine to verify a travelling salesman path in polynomial time. Testing a solution is very different from creating a solution in first place, especially with videogames where anybody can determine which games are fun and which ones not but very few people could even make a "Hello World" program.

Raincoat whore!

Hows about NintendoLife: revenge of the Corbinator, where your objective is to get through seven levels, throwing shovelware at the indecisive forumites that straddle your path, whilst avoiding Corbie's minions who attempt to change people's avatars as they see fit. In the final boss, the aim is to destroy a certain special arcade cabinet and super snazzy white TV in order to send the Corbinator to a state of mental breakdown, at which point you plug a seven up his A-hole and feed all the shovelware you collected throughout the game into his mouth until he explodes.

I'd buy it for the final boss alone :)

Well I'd probably edit it.

The sequel to Wiiloveit's game could involve me throwing copies of Skies of Arcadia at Damien, sending him thrashing wildly in anger all over the website, causing such chaos it is dissected into its component sites again. Then Ant would come around to his house and shove mashed potato in his face while Dazza points and laughs.

I would be the winner.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

These games sound like they'd be too much of an in-joke to sell well. Still, I'd buy it, just to support Nintendo Life. Ahh, they need a team name first. What should it be?

Any game like this should of course be called "Nintendo Life," but I suspect Nintendo's lawyers would have something to say about that...N-Life?

I mean their team name, not the game name but i have to say N-Life sounds like a good name.

Maybe the game should be a game of dumb monkeys typing up articles and reviews which earns you points depending on how bad it is, the badder the worse. Then, there could be minigames where the monkeys are flinging S£%$ at each other and lounging all day eating bananas. We could call it "IGN: The Office Sim"

Fine, that one could be a retail release, so the WiiWare version will include no A-holes.
