Remediation works best in this classic role-playing game adventure game now available on the Nintendo 3DS, which originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 1998.Read more
One of my favorite Dilbert collections is called ‘Clues for the Clueless‘. In that book Dogbert takes the reader through a wide array of scenarios and shows you proper and improper ways of handling it.
Although not specifically addressed, I think Dogbert would NOT recommend addressing lagging sales of your new product like this (emphasis mine):
This amazing dancing game celebrates Michael Jackson’s amazingly inventive moves while players get some entertaining exercise.Read more
Over Thanksgiving my wife’s sister and her family visited, with kids in their early 20′s, nearly a decade older than ours. Yet when the eight of us sat around the kitchen table playing Apples to Apples, all differences disappeared and we had an absolute blast. So when we went to visit them for Christmas, I brought along the Wii version
Alongside the juggernaut console versions of Call of Duty Black Ops that have led the sales charts since release comes a version for the Nintendo DS. This one didn’t get the attention of its console brethren, which is too bad because it is a better game.
- Seventh installment of the Call of Duty series, based on the
Yesterday I got an email from Nintendo titled “Nintendo DS and Wii Set New U.S. Sales Records in 2010″. The email touted a few figures, and here is a snippet:
According to Nintendo’s internal sales figures, the Nintendo DS™ family of portable video game systems has sold more than 47 million in the United States since the original model launched
For a while I thought I would never see my Nintendo DSi again …
I mean, my younger son already permanently took over my original copy of Korg DS-10, and when we were playing around with the new Korg DS-10 Plus on my DSi and he realized that I could add a second bank … well, he took the whole
See that image … that is the disc you would need to load and run in order to stream ‘Watch Instant’ movies on Netflix if you had a PS3 or Wii.. Yes, you needed a disc to watch disc-free movies. Strange, I know. A few weeks ago when Netflix introduced streaming content to Canada we got a hint that a
There are some who would have you believe that all of the games for the Nintendo DS are either casual puzzle games, shovelware (bad licensed games) or licensed products such as Pokemon (i.e good shovelware). Since I like neither or those game types and have played and reviewed more than a couple hundred DS games over the last five years,
I adamantly refuse to call Korg DS-10 Plus a ‘game’, despite it being a cartridge for the Nintendo DS. Read on to find out why!
KORG DS-10 Plus is an enhanced version of the revolutionary KORG DS-10 synthesizer software that was released to critical and retail acclaim for Nintendo DS in late 2008. In this new release the

I know I haven’t talked much about the recently released Nintendo DSiXL … well, that is because it is a DSi that is bigger, and I already did a DSi Review last year. There have been plenty of other reviews, but today from GameStop there was some news that should make owners of existing DSi systems
When someone introduces a new game for a new platform by a new developer in a totally unrelated genre with a familiar name, most fans of the original feel that it is likely someone is trying to cash in by attaching a familiar name to a mediocre game. The Might & Magic franchise has seen both sides of this: the
Almost a year ago I was sent a Nintendo Wii as a birthday present by a good friend. About a month later my then six-year-old niece and nephew heard about it and were excited to send me, via their mom, my sister, a Nintendo Wiifit pack. Some time ago I was sent the “Wii Thrustmaster Motion Plus Elite Fitness Pack”.
I was critical of the lack of DSiWare releases in my review of the Nintendo DSi last year, but don’t tell the folks at Nnooo. Last year they brought us myNotebook in a variety of colors, and that is a great add-on utility that is quite useful. Now they are introducing myPostcards, another fun and useful utility for DSiWare store.
(image courtesy Mariana Castellana Isaza) I am a huge Mario Kart fan, but I am terrible without the Wii wheel. My hand-eye coordination (or lack thereof) requires me to have the comfortable, familiar shape as I “drive” my kart. The regular wheel is a bit boring, though. Apparently dreamGEAR thought so too, and they’re partnering with NASCAR to create aRead more
One of the cool things about the new Nintendo DSi is the DSiWare feature that allows you to run apps and expand the functionality. As I mentioned in my ‘After a While’ Review, so far I have been largely underwhelmed with the releases, but it looks like things are starting to pick up! Read on for more details!Read more
In my recent review of MySims Agents I stated “the simplicity, hand-holding and repetition will likely mar the experience”, and really thought this was a game that would end up sitting on the shelf untouched alongside the old GameCube game BeyBlade.
So imagine my surprise on the morning after Halloween, when my two boys had a sleepover and were playing
Early this year EA released SimAnimals, a game that allowed you to engage animals in their natural surroundings rather than in a zoo. You managed and guided their interactions and environments as you progressed further and further into a forest in a game that followed the typical ‘god game’ protocols. Unfortunately SimAnimals for the Wii was torn to shreds byRead more
Create your Spore hero and prepare fight to become the galactic champion. An arena style fighter, Spore Hero Arena allows players for the first time to build fully 3D Spore creatures on your Nintendo DS and take them into battle. In addition, you can explore planets all over the galaxy, fight creatures, and gather parts to customize and
Hold on a second – don’t check your calendar, you haven’t time-warped back to last year! Indeed, merely 6 months after the launch of the DSi, Nintendo has announced that on November 21st they will release the DSi LL in Japan, for the equivalent of $220. Read on for more details!Read more
The Sims franchise has been a major powerhouse of sales and popularity on the PC for years, but has never really translated into success on consoles and handhelds, managing only modest sales and average reviews. As the franchise moved to the Wii in 2007 it was transformed into MySims, which removed all of the teen and adult-focused content and targetedRead more
I had grand plans to do a review of the Nintendo DSi right after I bought it on release day back in April – I was going to take a quick look at the new cameras, SD slot, MP3 player, and the DSiWare store. But at the time I was in the middle of playing one of the better gamesRead more
