  • First Impressions Pole's Big Adventure

    I have a confession to make. I hate platforming games.

    I think outside of sports games they must be my least favourite genre. So why would I be interested in a game like Pole's Adventure, which is very much a mishmash of 8-bit platformers? Well, because it takes the piss out of them fantastically of course! I think it's safe to say that if you...

  • News Pole's Big Adventure Coming To Japanese WiiWare

    What do you get when you cross the original Super Mario Bros. game with some extremely over-the-top risque humor? You basically get Sega's upcoming Japanese WiiWare title Pole's Big Adventure. Yes, you read that correctly. The character's name is Pole. And if you're dirty mind immediately thought of a certain male appendage, you're on the right track.

    Pole's Big Adventure looks to be a very standard NES-like (or dare we say Master System?) platformer title on the outside, but if you look deeper you'll find a game that will basically push the envelope for crude humor and just from looking at early screenshots of the game...

  • News New WiiWare Game: Let's Catch

    Sega has now gone live with the official site for their upcoming WiiWare title Let's Catch.

The game will also feature several challenges that up to 4 players can take part in that range from trying to throw the ball with the highest velocity to target challenges. There's even a game of Hot Potato where the potato is actually a time bomb. You don't want to be the one to catch the bomb when the timer reaches "0" obviously. According to the official site, the game will feature full Mii support and will retail for 1000 Wii Points.
