Tomorrow Corporation, developers of World of Goo and Henry Hatsworth, have revealed the name of their newest game, Little Inferno.

Mario Party 9 Wii Review – Nothing But Pure Luck

mario_party_9_wii_box_art

Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: ND Cube
Genre: Party
Players: 1 – 4
Release Date: March 11, 2012
Rated: E – Everyone

I haven’t enjoyed a Mario Party game since its fourth installment on Nintendo’s tiny purple lunchbox, the Gamecube. Originally the games were all about being the most skillful player in mini-games, choosing the right direction on the game board and a lucky roll of the dice. As the series went on, a force began to slowly grow and develop after each entry. This force was luck. It has negatively impacted the experience and lingered on for far too long. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been victorious throughout the entire game, all it takes is that one turn to ruin it all and put you in dead last. Has this lingering foundation based on pure luck continued to plague the series?

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Ep. 2 Not Coming to WiiWare

sonic4episode2

In an interview conducted by EuroGamer, Sega has announced that the next episode of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 will not be arriving on the Wii’s WiiWare service. The reason why you ask? The file size restrictions on Nintendo’s download service. Here’s a quote straight from the horse’s mouth:

 

 

 

“Our intention was to release Episode 2 on Wii as well. But, there’s a limitation on the size of the game you can release on WiiWare. Because Sonic 4 Episode 2 has cutscenes, and the graphics aren’t 2D pre-rendered images – it’s all 3D – all those things together made the game too big to be released as a WiiWare title. So, unfortunately, this time we had to give up on releasing it on the Wii platform.” – SEGA rep

Sorry Wii fans, it looks like you won’t be able to continue from the previous episode. Hopefully things on the Wii U will be different.
