Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Review

Nintendo's armor clad cover girl Samus is all "grown up" now, and Wii owners are the beneficiaries of her transformation into a sophisticated motion-controlled cutting edge killing machine in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Corruption marks the series' first excursion onto Nintendo Wii and supposedly final installation of a trilogy. For her curtain call, Samus must investigate a mysterious virus that has infected the Galactic Federation's computer network six months after the events of Metroid Prime 2. She soon discovers … [Read more...]

Metroid Prime Hunters

The DS has had a remarkable past 12 months, with titles like Nintendogs, Mario Kart DS and Metroid Pinball leading the handheld to an easy victory over the competition. But the game many have been waiting for has been Metroid Prime: Hunters, Nintendo's attempt at showing the world that an FPS can be done on an handheld. The big question is, "have they done it, have they shown an FPS can be done right?". Well, the answer is a resounding "yes," and while not without a few nits, it's a solid game that anyone who enjoys … [Read more...]

Metroid Prime Pinball

OK, the first question you’re going to ask about Metroid Prime Pinball is: “$35 for a pinball game? Is it worth it?” Well that's a hard question to answer, depending on how much of a pinball junkie you are. But this is a fun little game, filled with typical Nintendo arcade antics. And, in much the same style as the Mario Sports titles, the “sport” is set in a Nintendo-based universe. In other words, you’ve got Samus Pinball. First you'll notice a Rumble Pack is included, which gives the game the type of feel you'd … [Read more...]

Metroid Other M Review

When it was said that Team Ninja was taking over the reigns on a Metroid title, I had some horrid flashbacks of DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball mixed with the joys that the Ninja Gaiden revival brought. Hearing it was making a move to a pseudo-two dimensional viewpoint, with some first person segments for scanning and missile launching brought both interest and trepidation at how the approach would work. Combined with the changes to the development house, it came to light that the events here were immediately following … [Read more...]

Here Wii (U) Go Again: Is Nintendo Cooking Another One and Done?

Wii U Controller

The Nintendo E3 press conference and Wii U represent another roll of the dice, another gamble. The same story as five years ago. Only this time the surprise has turned into a groan: "Oh no, not again." And, like Kinect, a lot of it has to do with the Wii and the way it played out. Because Nintendo, once again, is risking short-changing its fans. The Wii had lots of promise, things like light saber battles and WiiConnect 24, but it never went anywhere. Our Wiis were going to be full of gaming love every morning. From … [Read more...]

Wii 2 Guaranteed

Wii2-Blog

Nintendo uses Japan as a litmus test for change. And right now and for the past year or so, the Wii routinely it outsold by the PS3. In America it is little different; just replace the PS3 with the Xbox 360. Take that and mix in the Wii's game lineup, which is the most sparse of any first half since the Wii was released, and an announcement of the Wii 2 is guaranteed this E3. The first-half first-party Wii lineup this year is Mario Sports Mix and ....... WiiPlay packaged with a Motion Plus remote control. That's a … [Read more...]
