Remember in the year 2010, when Telltale said they were not bringing their Back to the Future point-and-click adventure to Wii? Well, they must have fired up their DeLorean and fiddled with temporal events because Back to the Future: The Game will be available on Wii later this month, compiling Telltale’s episodic adventure series with all five episodes on one disc...
Purged by flames, the world’s remaining population is mutated by distorted fantasies, created to help stomach the inhospitable remains. Heartless meshes of flab, cogs and metalwork - enough to give even Silent Hill’s freaks the willies - these ‘meta-beings’ crawl the world, devouring humanity’s leftovers. Distorted fantasy being the very definition of ‘baroque’ itself. Animal Crossing it ain’t. It
If you’re not familiar with the Brave and the Bold’s take on the Batman universe, it’s very different from that of Arkham Asylum, or even Batman: The Animated Series. The game, like the show, is a throwback to the campy Batman of the ‘60s, with Robin making his goofy quips and the villains not remotely serious or scary. The game looks just like the cartoon – even to the point of feeling like you’re actually playing a hand-animated cartoon, which is pretty cool...
After a lengthy wait in the lengthy Wii line in Leipzig, we were able to play a multiplayer match of the recently announced Battalion Wars 2. Featuring the Xylvanians and other familiar faces from the original (the final game will feature six playable armies), we were tasked with protecting positions on the map from rampaging show-goers.
Looking at Battalion Wars 2 in action, you might be forgiven for thinking it's still the original game - the major difference being, of course, the control

After a lengthy wait in the lengthy Wii queue - the Leipzig Game Convention really is the new E3! - we were able to play a multiplayer match of the recently announced Battalion Wars 2. Featuring the Xylvanians and other familiar sides from the original (the final game will feature six playable sides), we were tasked with protecting positions on the map from rampaging show-goers.

This is the summer for online multiplayer. Well, assuming we get Battalion Wars before the summers over. Which, er, we wont. But with its continually delayed but impressive-looking stages and three - count 'em - different online multiplayer modes, “BWii” has us shoving the nearest cushion down our throats to avoid biting our tongues off in giddy excitement.
Even though we're drowning in Guitar Hero sequels and Rock Band peripherals, gamers just can't get enough of the rapidly expanding music genre. Wii gamers, on the other hand, only recently got in on the act with Guitar Hero III. But without downloadable tracks and Rock Band still to come, what're faux rockers to do?
In terms of bands that could headline a music game, it’s pretty tough to top The Beatles. And considering that The Beatles have one of the most beloved songbooks of all time, fans like us are bound to scrutinize every little detail.
As we understand it, the kids these days are awfully into cartoons. Thats fine. Were sure theyll eventually develop a love for shuffleboard and fiber supplements like the rest of us. But in the meantime, theres Ben 10: Protector of Earth for the Wii – an action-platformer based on the Cartoon Network series of the same name.
Playing the role of ten year old Ben Tennyson, youre given a powerful watch known as the Omnitrix, which is capable of transforming you at the flick of a wrist.
Understandably, we were a bit cynical when we heard about yet another casual sports minigame fest for Wii, but it looks like Big Beach Sports is actually set to deliver a few fresh twists on the genre. We were told the game is aimed at the "European audience," which explains the inclusion of cricket and soccer (football) in a beach game. Rounding out the six total games in Big Beach are volleyball, American football, disc golf (Frisbee golf)
