  • Feature The Making Of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

    We speak to Sam Barlow about the Wii horror classic

    The Silent Hill series has long been one of gaming's horror greats, often bringing a subtle and mature approach to the genre thanks to its deep characterisation and mature themes.

  • News The Servers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex Are Down

    No word on when, or if, they'll be back up.

    UPDATE: (9:05 CST) It looks like the servers are back up. For now, online for Call of Duty on the Wii will live another day. Evidently, it was some sort of technical issue. As many of you likely remember, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was shut down for good almost exactly two years ago. Succeeded by the...

  • News Nintendo Defeats Yet Another Patent Claim Against the Wii Remote

    Motion Games loses its appeal

    The Wii utilised common technology in clever ways and sold over 100 million units - that's the perfect combination to prompt a whole lot of patent-related court cases. Nintendo has successfully defeated the majority of patent claims against it in recent years, and has now confirmed the end of another case. This time...

  • News Nintendo Finalises Wii Patent Win Over UltimatePointer

    "Nintendo will vigorously defend itself" and so on...

    We think it's fair to say that a decent percentage of patent claims filed in the US could best be described as being in 'bad faith'. Though Nintendo has lost a small number of notable cases, being forced into payments or shared royalties, it wins the majority of patent cases launched against its...

As ever, commercial triumph goes hand-in-hand with loads of software, and the Wii has been blessed with 1260 games to date, not all of them good.

  • Video Sonic Colours Has Some of the Coolest Glitches

    Blurring the lines

    We know the popular narrative for some is to say that Sonic's been in a rut and had a bad run of games, but recent years have brought some solid entries. Sonic Colours / Sonic Colors certainly qualifies as one of the better releases in the past couple of generations, blending 2D and 3D play with some neat twists and power-ups. In...

    Review Trauma Team

    Trauma Drama

    Back in the early days of the Nintendo DS, Trauma Center: Under the Knife was a standout example of how the then-new touch screen controls could provide a fresh experience on the go. Atlus would then take its anime-pumped surgery games to the Wii, translating touch controls to motion controls, and found a winning combination there as...
