Nintendo announces Nintendo Network, a new digital distribution system for games

Right now, Nintendo already has e-shops for the Wii and 3DS, but the Nintendo Network will be more like the Playstation Network or Xbox Live as a digital distribution system for larger games. Welcome Wii owners to several years ago.

Oooh it’s the opening cinematic to Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Yup, it’s a Legend of Zelda game, and I’m sure it’ll be a hell of a lot of fun. It’s just too bad I’ll still probably never buy a Wii. But it does look like it’ll be pretty nice, and since it’s a prequel to Ocarina of Time, that does make it sort of tempting. Skyward Sword comes out November 20th.

Jerry Rice and Nitus Dog Football is a real Wii game, showcases why the Wii isn’t a “real” console

I don’t know how many of you remember the death of the NES, but it’s a common occurrence as consoles start to dwindle in age— their once grand libraries degrade into gimmicky garbage as developers jump ship to the next thing.

Nintendo drops a whole pipeload of Wii, DS and 3DS release dates

If you’re looking forward to all the new games coming out for the Wii, DS and 3DS, Nintendo just dropped them on you like a ten ton Koopa. I did notice that some of the games marked as “DS” in the list are really 3DS, so use your noggins.

E3 2011: Nintendo unveils the Wii U

The Wii U? I was hoping for something snazzy in a name, but the Wii U it is. This morning’s Nintendo presser was all about their new console, which wii’ve got pictures of for U. It still has motion Wiimote controls, but the big new thing is the big honking controller, which has a gigantic touch screen that can used for all sorts of interesting game interaction.

Wii price drops to $150 effective May 15

What with Nintendo set to announce its next console at this year’s E3, it makes sense that a price drop for the Wii was in order at some point. Aaaand… here it is. Starting May 15, for $150, you’ll be able to buy a Wii in either black or white, with a copy of Mario Kart Wii and a racing wheel. That’s down from $200 for just the console, so not a bad deal.

From GDC again: The first trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I’m really liking the look of Skyward Sword for the Wii. It doesn’t look gimmicky, like spending most of the game on a boat or a train, and I really like the look of Link in this game— it’s a nice balance between the super cutesy Gamecube era Link and the overly realistic Link. It just looks like a great straightforward Zelda game… except of course that if you notice, Link is now right-handed. What’s up with that?

Launching sometime this year for the Wii.

Unfortunately, WeDare is only coming out in Europe, so if you’re in North America and you want to try and get your party guests to spank each other and reach down each other’s pants, you’re going to have to do it the old fashioned way.

Finally, someone’s invented sex toys for your Wiimote

I would have thought that someone would have had invented snap-on Wiimote sex toys from the first day the Wii came out, but I guess sometimes when you’ve got an idea, you’ve got to let it simmer to perfection. Also, I get the one that looks like a dildo, but the robot arm? No, fuck you, that’s okay. That’s not going anywhere near my man bits.
