Where In The World Is Pop?

Poor old Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

After reading our review of Pop from the North American launch on the 12th May, we know a lot of you guys are itching to play this. Sure, you got a storming launch line-up with the first look at Dr. Mario and Toki Tori, but many of you were left questioning why the sublime Pop wasn’t released at launch, or at least shortly afterwards.

News: WiiWare Publishers Lament Release Date Shambles

WiiWare Publishers Lament Release Date Shambles

When WiiWare was first announced Nintendo proclaimed that it would revolutionize the way we buy our videogames. This was more than mere hyperbole; digital distribution undoubtedly allows smaller developers and publishers to get their product to consumers with the minimum of expense. However, it would appear that the process of getting games onto people’s machines is running a lot less smoothly than Nintendo might have you believe.

We’ve spoken to one WiiWare developer (who understandably wishes to remain anonymous) and they have a slightly less positive tale to tell about the way Nintendo handles WiiWare titles. It seems that getting solid release da..

World of Goo - New info and screenshots

I recently caught up with the guys from 2D Boy, the creators of World of Goo, which is one of the more interesting and original games coming to WiiWare to see how it was all going. Our regular readers may remember that way back in February we playtested a early build of World of Goo and the first impressions were excellent. If you think of Tim Burton’s art style mixed with the gameplay of Lemmings and Loco Roco then you won’t be far off the mark.

Anyway, we are all interested to know when we can expect to see this promising game on WiiWare. Sadly the answer is not for a little while yet. Their aim is to finish development on the Wor..

Dr Mario WiiWare Pulling A Sickie?

From the very moment a Dr Mario game was announced for WiiWare we’ve been eagerly anticipating its arrival. Whether we’re supposed to call it Dr. Mario Online RX or Dr. Mario & Germ Buster, it doesn’t matter to us; we just want to play it already! It was a surprising move for Nintendo to not make this available for the North American WiiWare launch last Monday, but now it looks like we may have to wait a little longer still.

With only Star Soldier R and Konami’s Critter Round-Up having been confirmed for this Monday’s batch of WiiWare games it is sta..

German Stores Selling Mario Kart Wii Early?

Our humourless European friends get to play it first

A poster on respected forum NeoGAF has claimed that some German stores are selling copies of Mario Kart Wii early, and has posted a photo to prove it.
