Call it overkill, but this particular cinema from Twilight Princess was so cool we wanted to post it. It occurs just before the third temple, so if you're afraid of spoilers, well, you're still missing out. You'll see how and why there are two planes of existence in this Hyrule and even catch a glimpse of a power that might corrupt even Link... ooh,
Nintendo plans to update Wii's Virtual Console game list with a brand new title every Monday, aiming to bring more than 30 games to the service before the end of the year, alongside the 12 retro games available at launch.
It'll certainly make Monday mornings a lot more
Nintendo's revolutionary Wii, launched yesterday, has already sold more than 650,000 consoles, shifting over twice as many as Sony's PS3.
Obviously, Wii's huge numbers are largely down to a bigger supply of available consoles than Sony managed for PS3's launch last week - if everyone who braved the utter madness had been able to bag a PS3, it's likely Sony would already be well on the way to catching up with Microsoft, who has currently sold more than seven million Xbox 360s
Want a PS3?
Yeah, we know - not everyone who wants a PS3 got one. Hell, most of our staff doesn't have their own units yet. Just as we predicted in our recent feature, a site has popped up to help you find one. Playstation Finder has an email alert system that notifies you immediately whenever a system shows up on an online retailer. Now, once about a billion people subscribe to this service it might be useless, but it's worth keeping an eye on - it might just get you the system you want

If you've been wondering how regular games - like Need for Speed Carbon, say - will work on Wii, then wonder no more. This new video gives you a glimpse of how the console's clever wireless controller can be used as a steering wheel stand in, with you twisting and turning it in your hands to wrap your car around the game's circuits. Hit the movies tab above for the footage.
Need for Speed Carbon on Wii will pull in alongside Nintendo's brand new console on 8 December.

As Nintendo never fails to inform us, Wii is a console aimed at hunting down non-gamers. This Wario Ware: Smooth Moves video shows little of the game but plenty of the big N's mindset, featuring, as it does, a trio - nay, a gaggle - of young ladies coming to grips with Wii's controller. Much giggling results. Hit the Movies tab above and click on "Wario Ware: Smooth Moves - trailer - 11-16-06" to watch the demo.
Sure, it's no different from Microsoft or Sony's achingly Zeitgeist-hunting promo
Nintendo announced today that two of its Wii Channels won't be ready to go on launch day.

This fresh batch of images from Wii-bound Sonic adventure, Sonic and the Secret Rings, gives us more views of the spiky one's towering dinosaur enemies, and hints at the sort of high-speed platforming we'll be racing through when the game's released next spring.
With a spiny T-Rex-like beast lunging over Sonic's path and a stampede of newly spotted Triceratops-ish dinos hurtling after him, we're guessing that Secret Rings will see us outrunning, dodging and hiding
With titles like Naruto, Dragon Ball Z and Rurouni Kenshin, Shonen Jump is the most popular comic magazine in the US. But it's even bigger in Japan. That's why this is big news. The January issue of Monthly Jump, which goes on sale December 6 (or one week before Blue Dragon's December 12 release) will feature Blue Dragon ST (that's Secret Trick.) Bigger news: Weekly Shonen Jump will be getting Blue Dragon: Raf Grad, drawn by the same artist who works on immensely popular Jump title
