European Nintendo downloads: Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, Dracula: Undead Awakening

This week, European Wii and DSi owners can download the same game on either system: a ported version of Chillingo's iPhone shooter iDracula: Undead Awakening. Unfortunately, it's hitting on the absolute worst day ever to release a WiiWare game about fighting Dracula. Castlevania: The Adventure...

European Nintendo downloads: Sonic & Knuckles, Frogger Returns, Overturn

It's a return of two classic mascots on the Wii this week, sort of. A good Sonic the Hedgehog game -- and, in fact, one that is kind of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 -- is up on the Virtual Console, with Lock-On tech intact; and Konami's Frogger is doing what he does best (almost dying in traffic).

European Nintendo downloads: Max and the Magic Marker, Electroplankton

As we predicted (based on having been told exactly what to predict), Max and the Magic Marker is available on WiiWare in Europe today.

European Nintendo downloads: Phoenix Wright, Electroplankton

The Wii port of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney arrives in Europe today, after being panned by US media for being a lazy port.

Electroplankton makes weird noises on Japanese DSiWare this week

Nintendo continues to release bite-size portions of old DS games as DSiWare games, which may rankle some, but we think its latest broken-up DS game makes a lot of sense. The company plans to release Electroplankton in Japan as ten individual 200-point downloads, each consisting of one of the...

DS Daily: Dual Screen Songs

Thanks to powerful, feature-rich music creation software like Korg DS-10 and Jam Sessions and weird musical toys like Electroplankton and Axe, the DS has become a multifaceted instrument for electronic music. If you've been using your DS for music, we'd love to hear about it! And, of course, hear...

Gaming to Go: Electroplankton

"Wha? Who is this impostor in my beloved column," you ask? Well, I kindly asked Matt if I could step in and guest write the column this week. Luckily, Matt is a fan of not working and allowed me to do so. I imagine he's sitting on a beach right now, complaining about the salt in his drink. So,...
