Bomberman blows up Art Style: ORBIENT on WiiWare

God, this just keeps getting better. We thought that last week was the best example of a known quantity trying to sneak its creepy friend past the bouncer and into Club WiiWare, but it's been absolutely topped. On the one hand, you have Bomberman Blast (Hudson Entertainment, 1-8 players, 1,000 Wii...

Finally, Midnight Pool breaks on WiiWare

Wild West Guns fire onto WiiWare

The untamed wilderness that was the American west in the 19th Century was tough, mister. You never knew when a balloon with dynamite attached to it would float up from the ground and try to attack, not to mention the giant flying sheriff's badges. Purple kamikaze midgets were around every corner, an...
