Super Meat Boy for WiiWare turns rancid

We know that Super Meat Boy as a WiiWare exclusive was abandoned a while ago, but now it looks like they’re pulling the plug altogether with little explanation. Are you disappointed? Or will you (did you ) play it on another system?

Frobot trailer will make you LOL

Frobot, a new WiiWare title slated for release on December 20th, is being marketed with a video you shouldn’t miss. Normally I detest ads of all stripes, and the video borrows heavily from Flight of the Conchords, but I can appreciate the funk.

Worst Wiiware week ever. Feed the pig!

I hope everyone’s in the mood for another hidden-object game, because that’s the only new title Nintendo’s offering Wii owners this week. To be clear, I’m glad Wiiware exists. It’s a great concept. When the service first launched, I bought every one of the debut week’s games. All were fun, but none held my interest for long. Now, many months later, my enthusiasm...

WiiWare version of And Yet It Moves surpasses the PC version

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6q5Bb6SOyc[/youtube] And Yet It Moves came out for the PC a while ago. I played a demo of it and found the game to have incredible artwork and a fun control mechanism. The recently released WiiWare version of the game is easily the definitive edition, with greater control of your character and through use of Nintendo’s awesome Wii controllers.

If your Wii died tomorrow…

Which downloaded games would you re-purchase? Nintendo’s policy on downloaded Wiiware and Virtual Console games’locking them to one console per purchase’annoys just about everyone.

So if you had to buy a new machine, whic...

Toribash, the True Tactical Fighting Game?

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwSBhm5ScV8[/youtube] I remember playing Toribash when it first was released as a freeware indie PC game. Where you could play on tiny servers with a bunch of other people waiting to fight the winner of a match. You could do some really cool stuff, but nothing as cool as the video shown above. The game was very interesting, as you controlled your fighter by ...
