Euro Update: Wild West Guns and Defend Your Castle

Lucky European gamers have been gifted not one but two WiiWare releases today. Hurrah!

Wild West Guns is a neat-looking shooter that attempts to capture the thrills and spills of traditional light gun titles. It reminds us a little of Konami’s crusty old arcade shooter Lethal Enforcers II: Gunfighters – hopefully it’s a bit better! Expect our review soon. This will set you back 1000 Wii..

EU WiiWare Update: Pirates and SPOGS Racing

It's WiiWare week for Europe again, and this time there are once again two new games available. Although you might as well say it's just one, as one of them was already released in the US and was found to be rather shockingly bad.

The "new" game of the bunch is Pirates: The Key of Dreams, in which you can play as a pirate, sailing the seas, recruiting new men, battling other ships,..

EU WiiWare Update: My Pokémon Ranch and Pop

Continuing the trend of alternating VC and WiiWare weeks, this week, there are two new WiiWare games available in Europe.

Undoubtedly, My Pokémon Ranch will get more attention than the other title today. However, we wonder if this is fair at all, because in our opinion Ranch is rather disappointing. If you're an avid Pokémon player you will probably get some enjoyment out of the "game"..

News: My Pokémon Ranch Due This Friday For Europe

My Pokémon Ranch Due This Friday For Europe

We’ve all complained that NoE never tell us what’s coming to WiiWare ahead of time. Not so this week, they’ve confirmed that you’ll be able to download My Pokémon Ranch this Friday, 4th July.

We have to admit to not being all that impressed with this game at WiiWare World, but of course there will be some amongst our readers who will want to investigate this for themselves. For the..

No WiiWare Games For Europe This Friday

It would seem that Nintendo of Europe have firmly decided on a pattern for WiiWare and VC releases now. Last week you got two WiiWare games, so this week you get none!

It's not all doom and gloom however. There are 5 new Virtual Console games to choose from and none of them are stinkers: Super Fantasy Zone - Megadrive Pac-Attack - SNES King of the...

EU WiiWare Update: Block Breaker Deluxe and Cocoto Fishing Master

You’ll have to forgive us but there’s a tangible feeling of déjà vu in the air here at WiiWare World, because this week’s releases happen to be the exact same ones North America was graced only a few short days ago.

That’s right – European Wii owners can indulge in some fantasy-fishing with Cocoto Fishing Master or bust some blocks with Block Breaker Deluxe. Or both! Cocoto Fishing..

EU WiiWare Releases 13th June: Spare Some Change, Squire?

As you’ve probably noticed by now, there are no WiiWare releases for Europe this week. It seems that Nintendo feels you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy with the 5 Virtual Console games that came out today.

Or perhaps the Japanese giant believes that the stunning news that Super Mario RPG is coming to the Virtual Console will be enough to keep the masses happy for this week at least?..

News: EU WiiWare Update: Actionloop Twist

EU WiiWare Update: Actionloop Twist

Just one EU WiiWare release this week, and it’s the neat little puzzler Actionloop Twist (known in North America as Magnetica Twist).

Originally developed in 1998 by Mitchell Corporation (the guys who did Pang), Actionloop also goes by the name Puzzloop in Japan and has been copied under the name Zuma. So, chances are, you've probably played this before in some shape or form! The gameplay is..

This was the day PAL Wii owners had been feverishly waiting for. Finally, after months of anticipation and hype, Nintendo’s WiiWare service has launched in Europe, bringing with it the tantalizing potential of ‘videogame publishing without frontiers’ – not to mention new headaches about internal storage space.

After a week of claim, counter-claim, conjecture and idle speculation (all of..
