Soul of Darkness is a Castlevania knock-off and doesn't hide it. The main character, who looks like a Belmont, has to travel to a castle in order to fight a vampire and save his lady. Even the title sounds like a Castlevania subtitle. So is this $5 downloadable game good enough for someone craving a quick Castlevania fix? It depends on what you're looking for... (more)

I do. I love it. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Well, I'm a little ashamed, but not much. Because it's awesome. This game, Yoshi's Touch and Go, and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat are similarly wondrous games to me, in that they invented a novel mechanic and just nailed the fuck out of it on the first try. All of these overlooked gems recall my favorite parts of the dearly departed arcade experience... (more)

So I wanted to take a little time out to talk about my absolute favorite games on WiiWare, and some of my top overall Wii games to date. This is Lost Winds and Lost Winds: Winter of the Melodias. I would make separate reviews for each one, but I truly feel any Wii owner should get both these games, since the second is a direct sequel which starts off right at the end of the first game, keeps you all the powers you earned throughout it, and adds much more on top of it, where both abilities and puzzle-solving/gameplay mechanics are concerned. It's a common complaint amongst gamers to say these games are short. But, if you buy both, you're getting at least six hours of pure side-scrolling bliss for twenty bucks... (more)

I admit I was quick to negatively judge this game. I saw it, and went, "whatever, it's a nice effort for WiiWare but that doesn't change the fact it's a short, straight-forward game with very little going for it". While that is somewhat true, if you're like me, you'll find your 10 bucks were very well spent once you finish the title... (more)

Intelligent Systems continues to be one of the most versatile internal development teams at Nintendo. The only real constant for their games is that they are always pretty good (and sometimes amazing)... (more)

Escapee GO! is something that we still see all too rarely on the DSiware service: a game that is not a puzzle game (or some type of clock). I have seen it being aptly described as "Metal Gear meets Pac-man", in that you have to navigate a maze while escaping detection... (more)

Rock N' Roll Climber is a Wiiware game that is supposed to emulate the effort, and hopefully the fun, of rock climbing. Having never been rock-climbing myself, I can’t say if it’s successful in that respect, but taken purely as a game, it certainly is fun and unique... (more)

DSiWare and WiiWare are often maligned, but the disturbingly well-kept secret is that they actually have quite a few good games. It's just that most gamers are unaware of their existence, and the media (and Nintendo, to be fair) does little to educate consumers... (more)

I shall endeavor to keep this brief, since there is not much to say about this product. It is a fairly robust (and cute!) digital instrument tuner,and it costs $2. I think it's a very worthy little app for... fans of the digital tuner genre. Very cheap, functional, and practical... (more)

After the success of the original Gameboy Advance version and Touched on the DS, Nintendo is back again with the third original WarioWare game to date. But rather than simply rehash the ideas in the original, Nintendo has gone a different route; the game pack comes with a motion sensor built right into it, and most of the mini-games revolve around usage of this. This often makes for some utterly nonsensical gameplay, which is exactly what we love and expect from the series... (more)

The big draw of the WarioWare series for me has always been the initial discovery of each microgame. I never have as much fun “perfecting” a single microgame, or trying to get a new high score in a given set of microgames, as I have seeing a completely new challenge thrown at me for the first time, with its unique artwork and style often completely different from the previous microgame or the next...
