Video games as a skill?

Before I started thinking about this idea, I was easily frustrated by new gamers who couldn’t seem to grasp controls that are second nature to me. I have a friend whose family has never owned a single dedicated gaming system, handheld or otherwise. Even so, how hard can it possibly be to hold a Wii remote sideways and control the on-screen Mario with the directional pad and jump button? Even...

New Super Mario Bros. Voicemail Greetings

Our friends over at Nintendo of Canada managed to snag some time with Mario himself to record a few New Super Mario Bros. and holiday themed voicemail greetings. While you can pick one of the three greetings to use on your phone’s voicemail system, it looks like one of the messages might be used by some video game retailer to remind gamers about New Super Mario Bros. Wii‘s imminent l...

Mario Kart Wii: Global Video Game of the Year

Combine the all software sales in Japan, the U.S. and the U.K., and Mario Kart Wii comes out on top with 8.94 million sold, beating Wii Fit in second and the much ballyhooed Grand Theft Auto IV in third with a completely respectable 7.29 million. Super Smash Bros. Brawl takes fourth with 6.32 million, and the number of core gamers on the Wii rises ever higher. Any reason why Mario Kart Wii shouldn...

Wii Channel Issues – Zooming Slowly

Mym6 of the Infendo Forums is currently experiencing a little problem with his Nintendo Wii and the way Channels Zoom in. I’m curious if anyone else has noticed this.  Some channels will zoom in very slowly.  My Mario Kart and Nintendo Channels both zoom in very slowly compared to others.  If I move those channels to a blank screen they zoom quickly again. I haven’t noticed this on ...

Nothing record breaking but just more proof that Nintendo titles have some serious legs. link

Review: Mario Kart Wii takes the race online

More than two decades of verification have solidified it as truth, but given the absurd quality of recent software, it seems worth reiteration; the best titles on Nintendo’s console have been first-party Nintendo games. Whether pushing innovation with Wii Sports and Wii Fit or polishing the established with Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Kyoto-based ga...

Mario Kart Wii released in U.S.

First announced at E3 2007, Mario Kart Wii has finally been released in the US to serve as one of Nintendo’s “bridge” titles. Software availability is expected to be depleted throughout Sunday, but finding a copy before the end of the day shouldn’t be too much of a hassle.
