I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Project Cafe On the Way, Nintendo Hasn't Given Up On the Wii

Posted on Wednesday, April 27 @ 19:04:29 Eastern by

It's not every day that a Nintendo console sees a drought like the one the Wii is in right now. No, not every day, but ever other year seems to be on the right track.

With so much talk of the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo's upcoming Project Cafe, I'm not surprised by the lack of Wii games and neither should you. Does that mean that Nintendo has given up on the little box that made them as rich as Scrooge McDuck?

Of course not! Satoru Iwata recently said that:

We have not release any Nintendo software titles for Wii, except for The Last Story in January, partly because we have focused on the launch of Nintendo 3DS since the beginning of this year. Therefore, some in Japan seem to have the misunderstanding that Nintendo has given up making efforts on Wii. We are actually ready to release new Wii software titles every month from May to the end of this year.

Other new titles currently unannounced will be ready to be launched within this year. Before the launch of the Wii successor, we will be aiming at creating other excitement for Wii in Japan, which has a large installed base of Wii hardware.

As much as I'd like to believe that what Iwata is saying about Japan will also apply to the United States, I can think of only three announced titles that might drive system and software sales for Nintendo in the West. I'm speaking of The Last Story (which has only been released in Japan), Pandora's Tower (again, a Japan-only title as of press time), and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (of course).

Show us more games Nintendo! If you've got a price drop, don't rest on your laurels. I didn't even like Mario Kart Wii! Put out some new games!
