Not sure if you’ve seen it before, it’s some years old now, but was recently posted somewhere and instantly grabbed my attention. Are you a big Zelda fan and an even bigger Nintendo Wii fan?
If you need a reason to turn on your Wii, this will keep you amused for five minutes and possibly longer if you’re a fan of Kirby since he(?) has a TV show and the dedicated Wii Channel will allow you to watch them. Every Monday and Thursday, a new episode will be released for you to watch, then get archived after two weeks to make room for the new ones, so the jist is, make sure you watch them when they’re available or you’ll miss out.
If you’re worried that, just because they’ve declared Guitar Hero as dead, there won’t be anymore content? Well, fret not (hahaha) as yet more songs are available in the Modern Rock Mega Pack. It appears to be some kind of last hope to keep it alive that bit longer since the songs aren’t particularly well known, except maybe three of them from Muse, Puddle of Mudd (would have liked to have seen more PoM) and QotSA, with Snow Patrol as an outsider.
Hmm, not sure what the purpose of the carbashing part of FlatOut on the Wii is except kids can go crazy swinging the Wiimote around to smack the crap out of cars. Not quite the best way to vent any frustration as you’re not actually hitting anything and so don’t feel the *CRUNCH* of a hammer on metal, but it might just be enough to tire out the kids before bedtime in the hope of a good nights sleep…

Besides rhyming, O-Games has released a couple of trailers for PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour, one for the Wii version and one for the PlayStation 3, they’re basically the same trailer and due to the Wii supposedly being the same resolution, the actual viewable part was very small, and being pretty much the same trailer (just swap the Move controller for a Wiimote), the PS3 one will suffice.
Image via CrunchBase Nintendo has released details of a limited edition black Wii bundle that will obviously include a back Wii, but also Mario Kart Wii, a steering wheel accessory, Wii Sports and a pre-installed copy of Donkey Kong. The first Super Mario Kart was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1992 in Japan, seven years after game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and his team put the finishing touches to Mario’s first major adventure, Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Since then, there have been 6 versions of the game for Nintendo’s consoles, with each game seeing players dive into frenetic racing action on tracks themed from locations in the Super Mario series of games. Mario Kart Wii has sold more than 24 million copies worldwide since its launch. Pre-order from amazon while it’s £164.99 and before the price fluctuates.

Pac-Man hasn’t really had a good outing since the 80’s, there’s only so much he’s capable of and then it’s mainly just platformer type games, 3D is just a no-go area, again. So, what can you do with the big round yellow waka fiend? Not a lot, so Namco Bandai have decided that he needs to be put on the Wii in yet another party game, because that’s what Wii’s are for, right? Party games? You’d think so due to the majority of them avalable and being released, so, what’s new about Pac-Man Party which has gone gold? As well as having the usual dozens of mini-games, challenges and surprises where players will have to use their skills and reflexes to compete against one another as they move about unique virtual game boards, not that much unsurprisingly.
