Wii: Nintendo's WiiWare Service Celebrates its Second Anniversary

WOW! Times does fly when you're having fun. I remember a while back when I was downloading up my first two WiiWare Games from the Wii Shop Channel. Pop and TV Show King were and still are two pretty good WiiWare Games. If you own a Wii and have yet to experience the WiiWare side of games, go grab a Nintendo Points card from your local retailer or pull out your credit/debit card and purchase a few tiles.

Since the WiiWare service has started...

- 209 games are now in the Wii Shop
- 67 of those games are 1000 Points, closely followed by 62 800 Point games
- Only 2 games in the library are 900 Points: Fun! Fun! Minigolf & The Three Musketeers: One for All!
- Total worth in points: 161,000 Nintendo Points

Wii: Super Mario Galaxy 2 U.S. Commercial and Other Gameplay Clips

It's almost here, it's almost here! Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be released within a few weeks and I am very excited! Below is the commercial that you should be seeing on television within the next couple of days. I think I might be more of a fan of Mario's second "Galaxy outing" than his first. Don't get me wrong, the first one is one of the greatest games of all time and will always hold a place in my gaming heart but this second game looks to take what the first game did to the next level!

"Super Mario Galaxy 2" TV Spot

If you decide to watch the next two videos, remember that "Super Mario Galaxy 2" takes place in a alternate universe where the actions of "Galaxy 1" never took place. That's right you are meeting the Lumas for the first time, all over again. Also take note that all of the following videos will contain spoilers. If you are not a fan of spoilers, I would put off watching these videos.

DS/DSi: New "Pokemon Black" and "Pokemon White" Information

Honestly I still cant believe that we have come from Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow, to Gold, Silver and Crystal to Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, Fire Red and Leaf Green, Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul silver all the way to Black and White. WOW that's a lot of Pokemon games and I'm not even naming all of the Pokemon side games. "Mysterious Dungeon" series, I'm looking at you! Ladies and gentlemen, Pokemon Black and White are on their way and will be released before year's end (at least in Japan) on the Nintendo DS/DSi. These two new games are sporting more of a 3D look and you can be sure to find many new Pokemon in these two, new versions of this long running series.

- Isshu Region
- protagonists are older than the protagonists from other Pokemon games
- Grass starter: Tsutaja - grass snake pokemon
- Fire starter, Pokabu - fire pig pokemon
- Water starter, Mijumaru - sea otter pokemon
- Zoroark as an ability called 'illusion' which allows him to transform into other Pokemon
- Trickery - allows attack to be calculated using the opponent's stats
- Claw Sharpen - raises user's attack and accuracy stats
- special movie event details: special battle against level 25 Zoroark will occur, which transforms into various Pokemon. It will eventually break transformation which allows for capture.

DS/DSi - Trailer: Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride Card Battle Taisen

Warning, Low Quality Video

Looks like a new Kamen Rider (DS) game is on the way and... it's card based. I'm a bit disappointed about this move and feel as if a true fighting game would be better. For now, I will look high and low for the DS version of "Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight". The DS could really use more 3D fighting games than Naruto.

New "Mama" Games hit the Wii and DS/DSi This Fall

That's right people, Mama is back and she's aiming to take over all of your Nintendo consoles! Two new "Mama" games were announced today, Babysitting Mama and Crafting Mama. From the small bit below about "Babysitting Mama" One can only wonder how much Majesco will charge for that game.
