Now that Twilight Princess is out, the next big draw for Wii is unquestionably Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Its alleged online play could transform the console into a serious 'net contender, but for now, we can only salivate over new screens.
Sorry, no new characters have been announced (come on Sonic, what's the holdup?), but we're never once going to complain about new shots. Just hit the Images tab for the
Frothing over Halo 3
When is utter obsession over a few screenshots great? When it's official. Right before the Thanksgiving holiday, Bungie.net published a detailed "dissection" of the new multiplayer screenshots of Halo 3. While we have the images, of course, we don't have the same insight into them that the game's developer does. In detail greater than we thought possible, the post goes into every minute aspect of each screenshot, pulling them apart. In all, three screenshots result in over
Metal Slug Anthology, the Wii-mote waving anniversary celebration of the Metal Slug games, squeezes 10 years of arcade 2D-shooter action into one bumper package and we've got a job lot of screens right here to fire you up for some retro slugging.
It was a decade ago that Metal Slug first appeared on the Neo Geo MVS arcade system, since then it has catered to gamers' 2D-shooter needs on all manner of platforms. To celebrate this developer and publisher SNK has compiled the original Metal Slug,
Someone brilliant has set up a website called miipages.com which allows Wii owners to get in contact with each other and swap Wii numbers in order to play against each other online.
Nintendo's online service requires codes to be swapped between friends in order for them to contact each other, which is a great way of making it a safe place for all ages to go online but not so great for those who don't have any friends with a Wii.
The solution is the unofficial miipages site which allows you to

This first ever batch of images for The Sims Wii gives us a glimpse of the new, cartoon-style look given to the series for its outing on Nintendo's motion-sensitive console, as well as suggesting how you'll be using the Wii-mote to rule your Sims' virtual lives.

It's a four day weekend. You've got a brand new console. These glorious moments are oh-so rare, so live it up. But, be careful with your hard-earned cash (or well-deserved reward for whittling away your parents' financial resolve) - use our handy review guide to get the final word on what Wii has to offer. If you're really dying to know how Happy Feet and Spongebob play, however, you're going to have to look elsewhere. We're busy with an avalanche of top-grade stuff here - and let's face it,
GamesRadar takes day off, nation gives thanks
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day here in the US. Thus, whether you view this as a moment of peace, when two separate cultures came together to share their lives and pie recipes, or as the beginning of the white man's cruel wresting of the land from the Native Americans, the point is: there's football on TV and food on the table.
So, we're going to give thanks - lots of thanks - and we'll be back on Monday. Save us a leg.

Pre-orders for Nintendo's Wii sold out in less than seven minutes after the console was listed yesterday morning, online retailer Amazon.co.uk has revealed.
"We expected a high number of people to visit the site but the response was phenomenal," says James Schall, Amazon UK's videogame manager. "It's the fastest-selling pre-order item we have ever encountered," Schall told gamesindustry.biz, adding that "it is very rare that we sell out of any item, let alone in
Lycos reminds us why Google became a verb
You know, we usually ignore those generic, "here's all the top toys kids want this year" lists that seem to sprout from every morning TV show, newspaper, and - least trustworthy of all - retailer. However, sometimes we get a list that can't be ignored because it just doesn't make any damn sense. This morning, search engine Lycos distributed its list of the top ten most searched for toys and video games this season:
The Top 10 Most Searched Toys this
Mortal Kombat? King of the bloody games, easy. Doom? No better feeling than perforating demons from hell into pulpy heaps. Dead Rising ? Trauma Center? Gears of War? Yep, yep, yep - seen 'em. You've played these visceral thrills already - hell, everybody
