This may also be the reason why a game that has never seen the light of day outside of Japan is featured as well. Charlie Sheen also makes a cameo this week so what are you waiting for? Head past the br… was that the doorbell!?

Nintendo on Project Rainfall: We will be watching very closely what happens in Europe

While not everyone may be fans of traditional RPGs, there are many a gamer up in arms at the fact that they will not be able to play the games they wish to play.

For the first time in its history, Nintendo was no longer the market leader as the Sony Playstation had broken onto the scene and easily ran away with the lion?s share of the console market. The Playstation 2 was beginning to pick up where its predecessor left off, and Nintendo was itself readying its own answer in the Gamecube.

Happy trails: Ten best Wii games remaining

Remember when consecutive vowels were the most confusing thing about a Nintendo system? Those bygone days when console names didn’t end with text messages?
