Review: We Dance (Wii)

We Dance (Wii)

Don't touch this

When a genre of game saturates a market it's fair to expect that any new title coming out within that style of play must do a good impression of the leaders in the field, in the very least aping what made the forerunners successful, hopefully providing an interesting alternative. As the number of first person shooters, mini-game...

Yuji Naka's Rodea the Sky Soldier is Finished

What's keeping it?

One of the most promising Wii games still to see release is Rodea the Sky Soldier from Yuji Naka's PROPE studio. We haven't seen much of the game since January, but the good news is that development work has finished. The bad news is that publisher Kadokawa Games is yet to tell Naka its plans for releasing his latest game, including any localisation plans for outside of Japan, as..

Fresh Dragon Quest X Screenshots and Trailer Inside

Square Enix's announcement of Dragon Quest X certainly ignited discussion among Nintendo fans: the news it will strongly rely on online multiplayer split players, but considering the popularity of multiplayer in Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies it should be at least worth a look. Now the publisher has released a fresh set of screenshots and a high resolution trailer showing..

3DS Reclaims Top Spot in Japan

A return to form

There's been some positive news for Nintendo in Japan with the 3DS reclaiming top spot in the Hardware charts, according to Media Create weekly sales charts. The 3DS sold 58,837 units to seize the crown, an increase on the previous week: with no major new releases on the handheld last week it is a reasonably impressive showing. It could be argued that the modest bump in sales is a..

Zelda: Skyward Sword Video is a Real Treasure

You'll see

Arguably one of the best bits of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was the treasure-hunting sections that made a thrill out of exploring the expansive ocean, and the idea returned again in Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Even without so much water everywhere, treasure is just as important in Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as the video...

Review: We Sing: UK Hits (Wii)

We Sing: UK Hits (Wii)

Great Britain, average game

Is it OK to be competent? Is it OK, not to excel, not to push the boundaries, but just to be totally fine? It's fair to say that we all want this medium to drive forward and provide us an experience you can't find elsewhere, but when a product doesn't claim to be groundbreaking should we really expect a revolution in game design? Probably not, which is what Nordic Games..

This Is How You Upgrade Items in Skyward Sword

Pay attention

It's a generally accepted fact that if you're off on a long adventure, the things you find at the start won't be as good as the things you find at the end. If only the shopkeepers realised this and relocated to the smallest town possible, they could make a killing from young adventurers. Anyway, that aside, this new trailer for Legend...

The revelation of Dragon Quest X for Wii and Wii U came with some uncertainty: will the game be fully playable offline, and will it require a subscription fee to play online?

PDP Returns to Combat with Wii Modern Warfare Headset

Head bang again

Last year's release of Call of Duty: Black Ops came with a nice surprise: support for the new PDP Headbanger headset for online play, a notable improvement over Wii Speak's use in previous online games. PDP and Activision obviously both believe they were onto a good thing, as the headset will be making a return for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in November. From the information..

When Gaijin Games released its first BIT.TRIP title BIT.TRIP BEAT back in 2009, the game took many players by surprise not only with its unique musical and visual presentation, but also with its extremely addictive gameplay.

A Better Look at Those Samus Aran Statues

Zeroing in

Last weekend saw some new Metroid: Other M figures revealed, and now we have some decent photos of the statues courtesy of Tomopop and Tokyo Hunter. Zero Suit Samus is stood next to a baby Metroid, whereas the poseable Power Suit version of the heroine just comes as-is ready to save the universe, presumably. We're sure some savv
