Peace in the Era of Call of Duty

In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Holiday Gift Guide 2009

We at GR love to bash the Wii. Not because female gamers prefer its sleek, sexy, Mac-inspired chassis by 80%, but because it's really a toy for kids and families. From our hardcore viewpoint, games are dumbed down for "them"... but we shouldn't complain too much. The Wii has brought video games back into relevance, and numerous households have a Wii. They may not use the Wii as often as they would like, but that's where this gift guide comes in, doesn't it? So, yes, if you are buying a Wii game as a present, please do, because there do exist games for the Wii that aren't Wii Sports.



New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: 2D Platformer
MSRP: $49.99
 
Now we know that New Super Mario Bros. Wii is as hard as the classic Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo... probably harder. But the generation of video games that we remember from when we were but a child were supposed to be hard. Today, games are way too easy and tell kids that life is meant to be a cakewalk and that games are supposed to cater to them. No. No, I say. Teach them a lesson now, so that they grow up to be upstanding citizens like us. *Are you mumbling?*

Dead Space Extraction

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Genre: Shooter
MSRP: $49.99
 
I guess the only way for a shooter to work on the Wii properly, it has to be a rail shooter. I mean, The Conduit is a great shooter I guess... for the Wii. But Dead Space Extraction is actually a winner, with a story that fills the plot of the original story and gameplay that asks players to aim at specific joints (if they don't want to become alien food, of course).

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Publisher: Ignition Entertainment
Genre: Action Adventure
MSRP: $49.99
 
Muramasa: The Demon Blade was the only Wii title this year that made me and my roommate forget that we owned an Xbox 360. Coupling fast-paced sword fighting with simple controls and an art style that puts the words "next-gen graphics" to shame, it's a game that will shut up anyone who says that the Wii is only good for shovelware.

Wii Fit Plus

Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: Exercise Simulation
MSRP: $19.99 ($99.99 w/ Balance Board)
 
You know what goes well with Wii Fit and that shiny Wii Balance Board you never use? Some fried chicken. Alright, alright, alright, the correct answer is a bucket... of fried chicken. Fine, get Wii Fit Plus instead. I'll just eat my delicious KFC by myself. *dangles crispy drumstick in your face*

Punch-Out!!

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Genre: Sports
MSRP: $49.99
 
Lil Mac has it rough. Someone obviously dropped the ball on the proposal for weight class divisions. He has to punch some guys down about fifty times before they go down... once. But if he gets hit about ten times, he down for the count. Yeah, there's the whole underdog thing going for him, but that's like asking some dude to walk into the ring with Wolverine for fame and not a whole lot of fortune.
