My Most Anticipated Title of 2011: Wii Exclusive

Wednesday, December 29, 2010 4 Comments

Choosing my most anticipated Wii exclusive title for 2011 has put me in a bit of an odd situation. It’s not that there aren’t any good choices or that I was so conflicted between my choices that I didn’t feel right coming to this conclusion. No. My issue boils down to a lack of interest. […]

Thursday, December 16, 2010 3 Comments

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is not a standard Kirby game.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010 1 Comment

The news has been going around today and, strangely, it’s coming directly from Nintendo.
