Wii U Game Party: Game Party Champions

Monday, December 3, 2012 No Comments

Having been spoiled by the Wii Sports games, I was initially underwhelmed by having to use the stylus to play Game Party Champions. Why would I want to play a collection of sports games including mini-golf, basketball, baseball, table tennis, so on, and not flail my arms around like a faux professional? But, after some […]

Wii U Game Party: Scribblenauts Unlimited

Friday, November 30, 2012 No Comments

Scribblenauts Unlimited, much like its predecessors, has a lot of fun potential. However, I don’t know how I feel about it on a console, as I happen to think it works better as a handheld game. But, seeing as how the controller is a handheld device, this game allows you not just to play it […]

Nintendo Holiday Showcase Event 2012

Thursday, October 25, 2012 1 Comment

Nintendo is not the little kid it used to be. For years we’ve seen a plumber traverse mushroom-related worlds to save a princess (who was always in another castle) stomping on mushroom-related bad guys and turtles along the way. We’ve seen an adorable pink ball fill up with air and float across a vibrantly colored […]

PES 2013

A hands-on look at Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 1 Comment

Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2013 is releasing in a few months (sometime in October, though the exact date has yet to be revealed), and I was privileged enough to get an early hands-on look at it. In a small boardroom (named Molière) of an immaculately shiny office in downtown Toronto, I played a match of […]

Xenoblade Chronicles

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

The first thing I noticed about Xenoblade Chronicles was how subpar the graphics were. And with its vast landscapes, mechanical creatures and all the rest in between, this game had so much potential to look incredibly breathtaking. But it didn’t! And sure, the fact that it’s on the Wii is primarily to blame, but I […]

X’11 Complete Just Dance 3 Interview

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 No Comments

At X’11 I got a chance to talk, and dance, with a hotty hotty bo-botty, banana fanna fo-fotty. She told me all about the new features in Just Dance 3, which I barely heard as I was too busy trying not to sound, or smell, like a bumbling idiot. Because, as we all know, hot […]

Rayman Origins Puts the Fun in… Classic at X’11

Ubisoft is bringing Rayman back to his roots with its upcoming title Rayman Origins. It’s the first Rayman platformer in years and the first title in the franchise to actually focus on Rayman himself since… well, the second title in the Raving Rabbids portion of the franchise. Michel Ancel and his team have been working […]

Kirby Wii Brings Franchise Back to Roots, With Bonuses, at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Thursday, July 28, 2011 1 Comment

One of the games Nintendo of Canada was showing at last week’s E3 2011 review event was the recently announced Kirby Wii. The name may still be a working title, but this game, first shown at Nintendo’s E3 2011 Press Conference, is already set to release this fall. It’s pretty clear that Nintendo was hedging […]

Rhythm Heaven for Wii Confuses and Surprises at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 3 Comments

At Nintendo of Canada’s E3 2011 review last week, I stepped up to a Wii kiosk with only one controller and was suddenly overwhelmed by a sea of Japanese characters. Not realizing that I was playing a demo for the new Wii version of Rhythm Heaven I picked one of the three available levels and, […]

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Hits Expectations at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 1 Comment

While at Nintendo of Canada’s E3 2011 review last week, I got my first chance to go hands-on with my most anticipated Wii game of this year, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword. The demo only featured a portion of a dungeon, some bird riding and a boss battle, but it was more than enough […]
