Mario Kart Wii Available In Europe Now!

The morning has been a good one for most of us Europeans as we all (hopefully) got to grips with the latest in the Mario Kart series and Nintendo's new "Wii-Wheel" controller extension.

Cheerleading Comes To The Wii!

No joke.

In a move that has thrilled Nintendo Life, THQ CEO Brian Farrel has announced that a cheerleading game is in development for the Wii which takes full advantage of the Balance Board. No further details were given but we presume it will work in a similar style to games like Dance Dance Revolution but involving chants and short skirts (or tight tights for the boys).

Umbrella Chronicles Hits 1 Million/Zero Coming To EU?

Given the success of the Resident Evil games on Wii so far it's no wonder that Capcom are swaying their decision on the Wiimake of Resident Evil 0 being Japan only.

News: Worst Trailer Ever: SEGA Bass Fishing

Worst Trailer Ever: SEGA Bass Fishing

Usually trailers try to lure us all into subconsciously deciding we can't do without a certain game. SEGA Bass Fishing's trailer has the opposite effect.

Reasons why this trailer is so, so bad: The two people sitting in a boat are poorly "stuck" onto a video game background. Why? The annoying country "cock" rock pisses me right...

Mario Kart Wii Will Have Text Chat But No Voice Chat!

Which means you don't get a bunch of rowdy Americans asking if you're "Australian" or if you've "brushed your teeth today"?

Update: Nintendo Puts Things Straight On European Brawl Release

It seems that 1up's recent podcast suggesting Brawl has been delayed until Autumn in Europe isn't exactly true.

While recounting some of the info that I learned from Nintendo of America's President & COO, Reggie Fils-Aime, I implied that the European release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl had been moved to the fall of 2008...that's not quite accurate, as neither NOE nor Reggie has announced any..

Five GameCube Games That Should Come To Wii

Given the GameCube's wonderful backcatalogue, here are five games we'd love to see come to the Wii.

The GameCube was the loser of the last generation by a long, long way. The Playstation 2 had already run away with the “console war crown” a good year or so before the GameCube’s launch and Nintendo’s box never really packed any kind of punch worthy enough of denting Sony’s dominance. With..
