You may or may not be familiar with a little indie game by the name of lilt line. In case you aren’t you should check out our review of this awesome little WiiWare / iOS game. Gaijin Games is bringing this awesome rhythm-racer to Europe in a couple weeks. If you’re a fan of dubstep, colorful visuals or brilliantly-simplistic game design I would highly recommend checking this one out.

Fitness games are something that we’re still exploring the potential and capabilities of, especially after Wii Fit pioneered the genre. I like to consider myself a uniquely qualified person to review fitness games since I go to the gym regularly and enthusiastically. Based on this perspective understand what it means when I say that EA Sports Active 2 is robust enough to not only make exercise fun, but also provides a fairly capable workout. I won’t go as far as saying it’s a substitute for the gym (sorry, couch potatoes) but it’s a great augmentation for someone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle.

“Not everyone is cut out to be a president, but every Wii™ and Nintendo DSi™ user must act as commander-in-chief of his or her own gaming republic. On this Presidents Day holiday, Nintendo recommends reaching across the aisle in the spirit of bipartisanship, creating harmony between new and classic titles, puzzle games and platformers, sprawling console adventures and crisp hand-held challenges.”

Hit the jump for this week’s releases.

Nintendo DLC Update 2/14/10
By: | February 14th, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day everybody. Why not celebrate with your loved ones by purchasing them some downloadable content for your Wii and DSi? There’s even Valentine’s Day themed WiiWare, à la Pucca’s kisses game, to get your manufactured-excuse-for-yet-another-consumer-holiday off on the right foot.

Hit the jump for today’s other offerings, including two new WiiWare demos.

Yesterday Activision announced some news that has some pretty major effects on the gaming industry. First off, the publisher has canceled the open-world action title True Crime: Hong Kong.

While this may be upsetting to some gamers, the real heavy hitting news is that Activision has eliminated its Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises “due to continued declines in the music genre.” Both teams working on the GH and DJH franchises have been hit with “severe layoffs.” Read more… »

When I was just nine years old, in 1995, You Don’t Know Jack was released on PCs everywhere, and took the quiz genre by storm. Never before had a game truly attempted to present itself as a controversial game show, where you could actually learn something to boot. While it was definitely not for kids (one sequence, called “three way” involved answering questions in rapid succession, with correct answers cueing a female orgasm sound effect), I couldn’t pry myself away from the game: the host “Cookie Masterson” was just too hilarious for his own good.

After a string of semi-successful sequels, and even a short lived TV Gameshow starring Paul Reubens, the series kind of just disappeared into obscurity, only to be resurrected in 2011 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and DS. Does it retain the same magic, over a decade later? Read more… »

Nintendo DLC Update: 2/7/11
By: | February 7th, 2011

Welcome to another exciting week of downloables for a Nintendo console near you. In my opinion, the real winner this week is the LIT demo. In case you missed it when it was first released, LIT is a horror puzzler. Now that there is a free version I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Shawn Johnson Gymnastics and a host of other titles also await you after the jump.

PETA will be thrilled to hear that my personal favorite title of the week is Animal Boxing. Honestly, who wouldn’t want a game where you get to beat down cuddly creatures? Moreover, publisher Gammick Entertainment boasts that Animal Boxing “is one of the first games to require players to invert the Nintendo DSi™ system”. Yes! Animal violence and it’s upside down! Punch Out!! has nothing on this one.

Hit the jump for the rest of this week’s games with funny names.

The strange history of Lost in Shadow, which saw the game begin as a budget downloadable title and suddenly switch to a full disc release, has brought about a very strange game. Its very compelling concept — taking control of a shadow that can only traverse the world of shadows that the real objects project — is one that grabbed hold of many gamers early on in its life. While many suggested that its conversion to a disc release had essentially ”sent the game to die,” some remained optimistic.

I belonged to the latter group and was glad to dig into the game for review. I expected a quirky platformer with some thought-provoking puzzles and, with any luck, a compelling story. I got none of these. Not even close. I’m going to tell you right now that this is going to be an unconventional review. It’s going to turn into a rant, and I know I’m going to be unable to stop it.

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.

Gamer Limit Review: lilt line
By: | December 25th, 2010

Differentcloth’s lilt line received some attention last year when it was released for iPhone and won the Independent Games Festival’s Award for Audio Achievement. Now, this cool little rhythm-racer is making its way to Wii-Ware with the help of Gaijin Games, the guys behind the Bit.Trip series.

But is the Wii release any good? Or is it just a quick and dirty port of a phone game?
