New Game Get is downloading now!



This week is all about the downloads. After watching some video footage of this new Nintendo title, I plan to check out PictureBook Gamesâ„¢: Pop-Up Pursuit. It looks like it might fill the Mario Party hole we’ve had for a while now. Revenge of Shinobi for Genesis and some great Rock Band songs round out a decent week of downloads. Too bad the regular Wii and DS games this week can’t keep up!

PictureBook Gamesâ„¢: Pop-Up Pursuit
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Pointsâ„¢
Description: Enter the world of PictureBook Games: Pop-Up Pursuit and enjoy a family board game set in a pop-up picture book. Instead of simply rolling dice to move along the map, you’ll use cards (which can help or hinder progress) and coins (useful for buying more cards, but don’t forget about your Coin Bonus at the end of the game). Spaces on the map play an important role in the game’s outcome, and your computer-controlled opponents exhibit different personalities and behavior. Occasionally, the mysterious Book of Magick will be opened, causing an event that may change according to how you play. This mixture of exciting game play and charming, artistic atmosphere give Pop-Up Pursuit high replay value and unique depth—even if its characters are flat.
