'VC' Friday: WiiWare takes over again

For the second time in three weeks, those rapscallions at Nintendo have decided to forgo releasing old, lovable Virtual Console games and have instead opted for WiiWare. Grr. Still, at least it means that Europe and Australia get Arkanoid-style puzzler Block Breaker Deluxe, which we deemed to be...

Wii Fanboy Review: Block Breaker Deluxe

When Pong evolved, we got Breakout. When Breakout evolved, we got Arkanoid. Then, when Arkanoid evolved, we got ... Block Breaker Deluxe? Not that we'd call Block Breaker Deluxe revolutionary in any way, even though it's fun to play. Take Breakout, slap on some tacky '80s visuals, then throw in...

Wii Warm Up: On the revised WiiWare roster

We know we had a WiiWare-centric Wii Warm Up recently, but with all the news of some new games hitting WiiWare that we weren't all aware of before (uh, hello Alien Crush sequel), we felt the topic needed to be revisited.

Gameloft phoning in more WiiWare ports

Well, actually, they're remaking cell phone games, but the title kinda works. We actually approve of the population of the WiiWare service with new games from anybody.

Wii getting cell phone shovelware, thanks Gameloft

In companies' rush to capitalize on the industry's fascination with waggle, the Wii has become no stranger to games we'd sooner use to prop up the short leg of our coffee table than play.

Gameloft Japan has announced a new WiiWare game, a Breakout/Arkanoid-style game called Block Breaker Deluxe, to be released in Japan in April, with U.S. and European releases to follow.
