10 of the year's biggest news events made not so serious by Wario

News is important. But it can also be a bit heavy and depressing. Oil spills, riots, cats in bins, politicians. It's all so bloody serious and likely to piss all over your Christmas cheer. So huzzah for our magazine buds at NGamer who, combining their skills of humour, current affairs and gaming have created a highly entertaining and not serious round-up of the year's biggest news stories using the medium of WarioWare microgames.



I'm not sure if 'current affairs' is actually a skill, but if it is, the NGamer team have that skill totally maxed out.

If you're looking for a Nintendo magazine that is amaze, fun and knows more about Nintendo than is probably healthy, then NGamer is for you. Why not consider a subscription?

    It's not Harry and Kate, it's William and Kate. The ghost is a reference to the ring - it's Diana's engagement ring, and she's dead. And of course it will be British news. NGamer is a British magazine.

    Was a decent attempt I suppose, but only 2 of those things are "noteworthy" (oil spill, chilean miners).

    A couple of them flew over this Yank's head, but good job anyway.

    3rd Is some BBC Ben Collins unmasking race car thing. I'm sure searching for "BBC Ben Collins unmasked" will find some answers.

    1st. Mel Gibson tapes. Him freaking out on his gf/wife. 2nd. Prince Charles’ car attacked 3rd. ??? 4th. Seems to go with the Prince Charles car attack thing. Since that is what they were mad about if you read the note in the game. 5th. Harry & Kate 6th. Oil spill 7th. Chilean miners 8th. Lampard's goal which crossed the line but wasn't given in the World Cup 9th. Old lady that put a cat in a bin, caught on tape and put on YouTube. 10th. 2018 world cup bid After that they repeat.

    I said "Harry and Kate" because apparently Diana's ring was picked out by Harry when Diana died, but was given to William when he got engaged.

    Hey, it's that Wario game you talk about on the podcast on-and-off. The Chilean miners and Gulf oil problem ones were great! What's the wedding ring one mean? Are you getting married yet, Matthew?
