Nintendo: Wii Music won't compete with the music game market

We would think so, considering that Wii Music is less of a game, and more of a toy, which makes it better than a game. Sorry for being so cynical, but come on, you have to be feeling the same way we do. But, onto the news at hand. Nintendo thinks Wii Music won't be competing with other music title...

Peach ate Mario's cake

It seems the glorious baked treat that Peach offered Mario at the end of his arduous Nintendo 64 adventure is long gone. She dumped his podgy butt in the moat and ate it all for herself, and seemingly continued to enjoy royalty snacks for some time afterwards. Peach has plumped up, and now you can...

We don't know much about this "Mini Car Candy Toy" set being sold at Play-Asia. All we know is that it's the Official Pokemon Mini Car Candy Toy, meaning all the others you've owned before this point were just crap. We're also not sure which part of these toys are edible.

Mario Kart Go! makes us want to go broke

We're no slot-car racing aficionados, and yet we're still impressed by this Mario Kart themed kit for sale at Firebox. Luckily for us and our itchy "have to buy it, can't resist" fingers, this $90 toy is out of stock. The only disappointing thing about the track is that you can't choose which charac...

It's time to get away from the body in our special week-long presentation of Show and Tell, and get into something fun.

Petit missions in Petit Copter

Famitsu's got some much clearer screens of Arc System Works and Sonic Powered's Petit Copter, and it looks great! But we love the aesthetic of Dreamcast games. Those of you expecting next-gen may be less enthused about the visuals. We're pretty sure, for example, that those rings are supposed to b...
