Plus the Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign, just announced yesterday, also makes its debut with Balloon Fight. A few more Wii U and 3DS titles, but nothing for the Nintendo Wii or the Nintendo DSi. That’s a shame. I really hope that there are more DSiWare titles in the pipeline.

18th Gate | Review

What’s the first thing you do when you buy any new game? You look at the instruction manual from cover to cover before even turning on the game? Weird! Me too! Okay, not really. The reality is that most of us don’t even crack the cover of the instructions unless we want to look at the pictures or if the game has a complicated and sometimes confusing controls *Ahem, sports games.* Let’s face it. Most games are...
