It’s Monday again and I’m here with another week of “fun” and “innovative” things for you to play on your Wii an DSi. This week it’s your usual assortment of things you, honestly, probably won’t want to give a second look. However, a cool little shmup called Cosmos X2 just hit the DSiWare store and it definitely looks promising.

Hit the jump for the scoop on this week’s update and a Cosmos X2 trailer.

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 summer Nintendo is running a series of competitive events across the United States. Wii Games: Summer 2010 gives the American public an opportunity to play a variety of Wii titles in select cities across the United States. Doing well at the local events could mean going to the National Championships in Los Angeles, where the winning teams will win some pretty sweet prizes.

After making a road trip across the American Southwest (this is starting to sound like the plot of The Wizard) to visit my parents in Texas, I found myself mere miles from one of these events. With the prospect of Nintendo paying my way back home to Califooooornia, I coerced my poor mother into coming along with me to play some videogames at the Woodlands Mall.

Hit the jump to find out about our adventure and one of the coolest free videogame events you might have the opportunity to attend this summer.

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.

Believe it or not, Sega has been listening to fans. Sonic 4 alone is proof of that. However, Sega is not just leaving it at that. Everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic blue hedgehog is also making an appearance in an all new three dimensional adventure as well – Sonic Colors.

While that may sound like bad news, producer Takashi Iizuka is here to assure us that fans will not be disappointed with Sonic Colors and that this title will break the dreaded Sonic Cycle. Iizuka’s words, a brand-new gameplay trailer and the final box art await you after the jump.

Good news, everyone! The chiptune-inspired electronic music of the Bit.Trip games is easily one of the biggest draws to Gaijin Games’ outstanding Wii-Ware series. The soundtrack for Bit.Trip RUNNER is available now over at CDBaby.com and it is excellent. Whether you are already in love with the games or are just a fan of the chiptune scene, I can wholeheartedly recommend checking this out.

More good news after the jump.

It has become increasingly apparent that games have been watered down for today’s current generation of gamers in an attempt to make things more streamlined. Indeed, while this notion certainly rings true when considering Nintendo’s approach with the Wii – not to mention the ever-notorious Kinect and Playstation Move following suit – there are still games being produced that have been lovingly crafted for the more dedicated gamer.

Enter Sin and Punishment. Developed by rail-shooter veterans Treasure, the series made its debut back on the Nintendo 64, garnering much critical acclaim due to its eclectic nature and high production values. However, with the popularity of Ninty’s beloved console rapidly dwindling, Treasure quietly removed the title from their roster and released it exclusively for the Japanese market. It became a mythological entity at that point; North American and PAL owners were shunned in an attempt to sustain financial stability, thus making it a prestigious collector’s item in the process.

When we all heard Sonic was trying to make another comeback, we all sighed. As much as we want to see the blue blur return to stardom like Robert Downey Junior’s career, we all felt that the likelihood of it was becoming slimmer with each failed game.

After having the opportunity to play the hands-on demo, I can definitely say that SEGA is taking the right steps to bringing our beloved hero back from the dead.  While it’s tough to say how the public will perceive it, I was surprisingly impressed overall with the demonstration.

If you asked me what my top ten favorite games of all time were, two of them would be Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2. I just can’t get enough of Donkey and Diddy’s charm: there’s something interesting about gameplay that features both a strong respectable powerhouse, and a small dexterous troublemaker – plus the level designs were pretty amazing.

So what do I think of Donkey Kong Returns? Well, it’s Donkey Kong! Read more… »
