Review: X-Men: Destiny (Wii)

X-Men: Destiny (Wii)

XY oh why

X-Men is the type of comic series that makes it tempting to visualise yourself in a starring role. Its heroes are just like the rest of us, give or take a few chromosomes, and its universe works both as an allegory for coming to terms with your identity as it does for the larger issue of race relations. But does X-Men: Destiny mutate into...

Spider-Man: Edge of Time (Wii)

Here come the Spider-Men

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions had a lot going for it last year with its snappy presentation of four incarnations of the webhead powered by a scrappy developer. While not quite in swinging distance of comic game king Batman: Arkham Asylum, Shattered Dimensions brought a massive jolt to a franchise on life support — and...

Resident Evil's Nintendo History

Undead on the big N, past, present and future

The claustrophobic darkness. The creeping undead. The hideous monsters. The Resident Evil series has brought such thrills and chills to our TVs since 1996, and it’s taken quite a unique path when it comes to Nintendo consoles. With the month of All Hallows’ Eve upon us, we decided to take a look at...

Australia, You Get the Reconfigured Wii Console Too

Everybody's happy

The Wii-without-GameCube-bits — still marginally shorter than its official title, "newly reconfigured Wii" — is coming to Europe in various colourful bundles, and a black Mario pack in North America.

Centipede Infestation's Weapons Trailer is Old School

You'll see what we mean

You can't beat a good top-down shooter, especially when the enemies are giant bugs and you have flamethrowers and laser guns: that's scientific fact. By similar scientific logic, the upcoming Centipede Infestation on 3DS and Wii should be approaching unbeatability, as the new trailer below shows. The game itself might look a...

NLFM Episode 21: Curse of the Halloween Hootenanny

Fear the reaper!

Since it's not only the single best month of the year and because we had so much fun last time [citation needed], the NLFM Halloween Hootenanny has returned! More spooky, more sinister and more deathly, this episode is best listened to in a dark castle dungeon while eating raw pumpkins. Failing that, anywhere else will do. 1.

Let There Be No Doubt - The Last Story is Australia-Bound

Three out of four ain't bad

Hironobu Sakaguchi's The Last Story will make its way to Europe and Australia next year, as the Australian Classification Board has granted the game an M certificate. That of course leaves North America as the only major English-speaking territory not to be looking forward to the game next year, but there's always hope that could change. No release date yet for PAL..

Explore Skyward Sword's Skyview Dungeon

How can a dungeon have a sky view?

We don't know how the estate agents came up with the name, but Skyview dungeon is the subject of a new trailer for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The dungeon follows on from the Faron Forest featured in yesterday's dowsing trailer, and features swordfighting and an appearance from Lord Ghirahim.

Many have tried...

If there's one genre that's really exploded in popularity on consoles over the last five years, it's the first-person shooter, the Call of Duty series in particular experiencing phenomenal growth. While these titles thrive on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, they don't always take advantage of the Wii's qualities, particularly when it comes...

Nintendo Europe Launches Japanese RPG Trio Contest

Look away, North America

One of the ways Nintendo of Europe marketed the superb Xenoblade Chronicles was with a series of official Let's Play videos over on YouTube. Depending on your point of view, it either went very well or very badly, as NoE now wants players to create their own Let's Play series as part of a new competition. The videos can be...
