First up, we have Homie Rollerz for the DS. This might look like Mario Kart goes to the ghetto, but for fans of Dave Gonzaless original creations, this is an awesome opportunity to play as one of your all-time favorite Homies. Gonzales has even helped out with the development, providing authentic dialogue and an all-new Homie - Wizard - out to grant the wish of the low-rider racer brave enough to win The Wizard Circuit. Look for this colorful little game sometime in February
Midway is bringing TNA Impact! to the Wii a bit earlier than its opponent, THQ’s WWE SmackDown! vs Raw 2009. Clearly both are excited, what with each throwing in the exclamation point into their title. We’ve broken down both brawlers into distinct categories, and determined which looks to be the winner. All of this may change before release, but here’s how we call it so far.
With curious binocular-like eyes and a metallically high-pitched voice, Wall-E stars as an adorable trash-compacter in this summer’s Pixar film of the same name. Plot details are scarce, but from what we can discern, Wall-E is the last surviving trash cleaner on a long-since abandoned Earth. One day, a recon spaceship arrives with the sleek iPod-looking Eve, Wall-E’s romantic interest. When she has to leave, Wall-E hops on board
Is this upcoming Wario release Nintendo’s best-kept secret or worst-promoted game? We really can’t decide. Wisely casting aside last year’s disastrous Wario the Thief, Nintendo are returning to the Wario Land franchise with all that confusing disguise-swapping malarkey substituted for remote-shaking fatty rage.
One of the creative forces behind the brilliant WarioWare series for GBA, DS and Gamecube is currently working on a game for the Nintendo Revolution.
Hirofumi Matsuoka, the director of the oddball minigame series, has stated that he is developing for the new console, but has not yet confirmed what the project is, according to online reports.
It certainly isn't hard to imagine a Revolution WarioWare as it would be the perfect game to show off the potential of the new controller through it's

Consisting of over 200 bite-sized minigames, there shouldn't be any surprise that it's WarioWare: Smooth Moves that really pushes the Wii remote's flexibility to the limit and we managed to get hands on with the mayhem.
Nintendo's oddball puzzle game has always managed to test the reflexes and the mind in numerous unique ways, but now it has the Wii remote to complicate matters further. In fact, WarioWare uses 15 different ways of holding the remote and so far we've managed
Finally, we can release the inner cheerleader in all of us (maybe we can even free the one chained to our water heater), now that Namco Bandai has officially announced We Cheer. Set to occupy your Wii and pre-pubescent daughter’s free time this fall, We Cheer enables you to pull off cheerleading moves using only the Wiimote set to 30 contemporary tracks Paramore, Hilary Duff and even classic feel good-anthems like “Walking on
We Love Golf, the upcoming game from Camelot and Capcom, attempts to balance an easy-to-pick-up-and-play game with a technical sports game that rewards players who get out on the course and practice more than the other guys. The game takes a combination of traditional three-button-press golf-swing mechanics and the Wii motion controls, which means you'll need to play with precise timing and a smooth swing if you're planning to hit those greens.
We Ski is the first skiing game to use the Balance Board to steer, and it puts the focus on fun and not exercise. It simulates an entire ski resort, with lifts, other skiers and 14 unique runs, which are all open from the moment you first put in the game. Through exploration you'll find characters around the mountain who offer 70 freestyle events. They're a variety of challenges, such as races, photo shoots or search and rescue missions. That
Huffing and puffing. Aching all over. Sweat glistening on a furrowed brow. All this just from lifting the balance board out of the box. Behind that nimble white exterior lies a weighty stash of blubber-monitoring tech, all designed to complement the Wii Fit software and rate you from fatty to flimsy. It’d be wrong to cast a health-conscious critical eye over Wii Fit, so instead we ask the simple question: is it actually fun?
