DS | X-Scape Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   

We blast tanks and fly around space in this 3D shooter. Why would you want to escape when you can just blow your enemies to smithereens? X-Scape puts you in the role of a grizzled commander returning home a decade after his illustrious tour of duty. Home is not quite in the shape he left it, though. An evil warlord has taken over the entire planet, and it is up to you and your mobile spacecraft XIXIV to make your home world lovely once more, by firing as many bullets as possible. We went hands on with this galactic adventure today, and caused an awful lot of tanks to blow up by our trigger-happy finger.

Wii | FlingSmash Hands-On Impressions E-mail
Written by Munk   

This Wii MotionPlus-only sidescroller has you flinging the remote to bounce an adorable blob around the screen When Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus accessory debuted last summer, a lot of the early games that used the device were sports titles. After all, the control schemes were already there, and the MotionPlus was a relatively easy to make the virtual swing of a tennis racket or golf club more true to life. But the number of non-sports games that employ the MotionPlus has steadily grown, giving players a chance to swing their Wii remote more accurately in a number of different genres. One of the latest is FlingSmash, a game we played earlier today at Nintendo's Q1 Media Summit in San Francisco.

DS | Picross 3D Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   
2D math is fun, but 3D math is even better in Nintendo's latest puzzle game. Just one extra dimension adds a whole bunch of complexity. The original Picross was released for the Nintendo DS in 2007, and even though it had a mere 2 dimensions, it contained a ton of brain-stumping puzzles that were liable to suck players in for hours without letting go. The three year interval since the original was released has given Nintendo time to bring an entirely new dimension into the mix, and this makes an already challenging game that much harder to wrap your head around. We took on the first six puzzles in Picross 3D today, and came away impressed, and with only a slight headache.

Wii | Art Style: Light Trax Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   

The minimalist racing game is coming to WiiWare later this year. Check out our hands-on impressions. The bit Generations series of games were released in Japan on the Game Boy Advance in 2006 and, in the last few years, Nintendo has released a handful of the games via WiiWare. The latest is Art Style: Light Trax which is based off the bit Generations game Dotstream. It's a racing game but, instead of motoring along in a supped-up car, you're a line of light zipping towards the finish line on a 2D plane. Along with another game in the Art Style series, Rotozoa, Nintendo was showing Light Trax for the first time.

Two new games in the Art Style series were on hand at today's Nintendo press summit in San Francisco: the racing game Light Trax and Rotozoa. The latter is a puzzle game that had us hooked from the moment we laid hands on it.

Wii | Mega Man 10 Hands On E-mail
Written by Munk   

The blue bomber is coming to a Wii near you, this time with easy mode and new playable character. If you've been avoiding Capcom's long-running Mega Man series because you're afraid of the game's legendary difficulty, then Mega Man 10 might be the game for you. In addition to a slew of new bosses to battle and pixel-perfect jumps to make, the upcoming 2D platformer will feature an easy mode that should be a good fit for those who lack the skills normally required by the blue bomber. Of course, "easy" by Mega Man standards can still mean a great deal of challenge as we found out during a hands-on session with the game at today's Nintendo press summit in San Francisco.

Wii | Metroid: Other M Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   
Samus has a case of the baby-blues in this sequel to Super Metroid. Metroid: Other M--codeveloped by Nintendo and Team Ninja (of Ninja Gaiden fame)--is best described as a culmination of all the Metroid games that came before it. It interweaves plot points and gameplay mechanics from those games into a sequel that takes place after events of Super Metroid, but despite bringing all of these familiar characteristics together, Other M feels anything but familiar. The game forges its own identity that rests somewhere between Super Metroid and the Metroid Prime series, with the end results amounting to something that most fans will probably find surprising. A warning: This write-up includes some minor story set-up spoilers.

Wii | Super Mario Galaxy 2 Hands-On E-mail
Written by Munk   
We finally get some hands-on time with the new drill and take Yoshi for a spin in Super Mario Galaxy 2. After the morning presentation at Nintendo's media summit in San Francisco, we were let loose to roam the floors and get some hands-on time with a variety of games, but most importantly, this was our first chance to play Super Mario Galaxy 2. Like in the previous game, Mario will roam the universe that defies the laws of physics, hopping from one planet to another as well as visiting plenty of exotic locales. But this time, he will be accompanied by the adorable green dinosaur that we've all come to know and love--Yoshi. Nintendo had 10 levels for us to choose from, so we did our best to drill, jump, and eat our way through each unique area.
