It may be a new year, but its the same old Nintendo downloadable title update. As usual, there’s a smattering of less than interesting titles hitting WiiWare and DSiWare this week. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be a rose amongst all the shite this week. Well, actually, there might be one.

There is a demo for Dreambox Games’ adventure-platformer Robox. If you like classic Metroid, that might be worth checking out. Hit the jump for this week’s games with ridiculous names.


Given the proliferation of real-time RPGs or blending of genres ala Mass Effect 2, it’s interesting to look back and recall that there was a time when real-time RPGs were a blip on the horizon as turn-based combat and random encounters dominated the RPG palette. Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light underscores just how far we’ve come; now 4 Heroes of Light is the odd one next to the real-time big boys.  By its own admission 4 Heroes of Light is a classic old school RPG with the technology we’re used to, and while this is certainly the case the inherent niche appeal of the game may have a lot of people wondering what the big deal is.

The moment this review used the words “old school RPG” I’m sure many of you prophetic seers deduced almost the exact story of 4 Heroes of Light, especially if you happened to grow up in the 8 and 16 bit eras.  Our hero Brandt is a typical 14-year old boy entrusted by his king, to rescue Princess Carino, who has been captured by a witch.  As he is joined by his friend Jusqua, rookie soldier Yunita, and Carino’s younger sister Aire, all isn’t as simple as it seems.  When their rescue mission goes horribly awry, the four must embark on a world-spanning quest to save the world, perhaps becoming heroes of light along the way.

Nintendo DLC Update: 12/27/10
By: | December 20th, 2010

Back in the day when I was still wearing braces,  getting in trouble for skate boarding in the school yard and was death afraid of girls (who at the time stood at least a head taller than me) my favourite multiplayer game was…well, I guess it was Goldeneye. That was the first, and unfortunately only, FPS that I was able to whoop everyone and there brother at.

My second favourite multiplayer game back then was…Super Smash Bros. Dammit. Well, a game I really liked was Mario Party 2 and it’s out out this week on Virtual Console. Hit the jump for more info on that and this week’s other releases.


You may already be familiar with this week’s big title if you have an iPhone. However, now Wii owners have the opportunity to enjoy Different Cloth’s lilt line.  lilt line is “an award-winning rhythm racing game with a dubstep soundtrack and a visual aesthetic that will confound your senses and rock your soul.” lilt line makes its way to the Wii-Ware service  as Gaijin Games’, the developer behind the Bit.Trip series, first attempt at publishing. Lacking a touch screen, lilt line‘s Wii release reportedly features similar controls to those of Bit.Trip Beat.

I had the opportunity to speak with Gaijin Games CEO Alex Neuse  in Los Angeles during E3. He seemed excited, but a little nervous about lilt line and Gaijin Games’ first foray into the publishing world. Do these guys a favour and try out lilt line. A free demo version is available via Wii-Ware for a limited time, so you really have no excuse not to at least try this sweet rhythm-racer out.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s releases.

Another week, another Nintendo update…this week’s exciting title is a little game called Cave Story. While it has been available on both PC and Wii for a while now, Daisuke Amaya’s indie classic is now available via Nintendo’s DSi-Ware service. Additionally, a demo for the Wii-Ware version is also now available.

This week’s downloadable titles await you after the break.


It’s November everybody… Why not start the month off right with some downloadable Nintendo games? Hit the jump for this week’s releases.


Bit.Trip FATE! Bit.Trip FATE is here! The fifth entry into Gaijin Games’ impressive Wii-Ware series is now ready and available for download on your Wii console.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s downloadable titles.

Nintendo DLC Update 9/6/10
By: | September 6th, 2010

It’s your favourite day of the week! That’s right, it’s Idonthavetogotoworktoday. As much as I would have loved to sleep in and enjoy the government-sanctioned holiday, especially considering the fact that I managed to get less than eight hours of sleep over the entirety of the weekend, I am here to bring you the Nintendo Update.

Seriously, PAX was great. There are plenty of wonderful titles headed to Nintendo’s downloadable services in the coming months. So keep an eye out. Until then, you’ll have to make do with these.

Hit the jump if spending your Labor Day with “peculiar cowboys, deadly samurai and feathered friends” sounds like your idea of a good time.


This week, long awaited platformer And Yet It Moves (1000 Wii Points) has finally made its way to Wii-Ware.  Turn the game’s beautiful paper-craft inspired world on its head by using the Wii remote to complete mind-bending puzzles by changing the world around you.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s Nintendo Download Update.


Load up your Wii this week and take control of a “space jet” on a faraway planet in Calaris’ Space Trek. Outsmart the aliens to save the survivors whilst enjoying the game’s special brand of “humorous dialogue”. (700 Wii Points)

In A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots, the planet of Monsteca has become overrun by an army of robots. It’s up to you to gather the herd and defeat the invaders. This strategy game offers 20 levels and is probably the closest thing to Pikmin 3 we will be getting for a while. For 500 Wii points it doesn’t look half bad.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s update and Space Trek‘s hilariously bad trailer.


Last week Sega producer Takashi Iizuka made the bold claim that Sonic Colors would not fall victim to the dreaded Sonic Cycle. With an exciting trailer, gameplay seemingly ripped straight from the brilliant Sonic Unleashed daytime stages, and a bright, cheery aesthetic reminiscent of Super Mario Galaxy, it was easy to believe Iizuka’s words. However, maybe someone at Sega should quiet the guy down before his mouth jeopardizes the title’s success.

In a recent interview Iizuka told British retailer GAME that Sonic Colors is not for core gamers, and has some pretty interesting ideas about who plays Sonic titles. His startling words await you after the break.


This week’s Nintendo Download has a mix of games for your Wii and DSi, some more interesting than others. However, I can definitively say that the most arousing downloadable title of the week is Enjoy your massage.  Six clients are waiting for you to rub them down. The game is rated E10+ for “mild suggestive themes.” At a mere 500 Wii Points and suggestive material to be had, it would be downright criminal to miss out on this one.

The rest of this week’s update can be found after the break.
