The World Ends With You: 9
Mario Kart: Wii: 8
Wii Fit: 5
Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer: 8
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker: 7

Wii Fit may not be perfect, though I do not believe the game should be given that score. By no means does the game appear to be perfect, but it’s worthy of a better score.

“Concerning the new James Bond game, we are actually developing the Wii & PC versions of the game. But, it is clearly too early to give more information about the content of this product.” – Beenox PR rep

James Bond: Quantum of Solace might not end up to be as good as GoldenEye was on the Nintendo 64, but the game is worth a look. Of course though, it’s much too early to decide how well this game will turn out.

Who & What: MLE Professionals Tim “Eater X” Janus and Crazy Legs Conti say goodbye to spring and hello to summer as they face-off in the first-ever Major League Eating: The Game WiiWare Watermelon Showdown*. These two gurgitory gladiators will vie for a new Watermelon eating world record in celebration of the launch of Major League Eating: The Game for WiiWare™.

Tim “Eater X” Janus, the newly crowned Sushi eating champion of the world, a man who hides his inner torment behind a mask, will compete against Crazy Legs Conti. Conti, often described as the “Evil Knievel of the Alimentary Canal,” is known for eating his way out of a 96-cubic foot sarcophagus of popcorn at the debut of his own movie, Zen and The Art of Competitive Eating.

This bare knuckled, drag out, in-your-face (literally) six minute exercise in extreme watermelon consumption is near certain to yield a new world record. It will also be the first watermelon eating contest to feature both real and virtual watermelons.

Come join us, get some hands-on time with one of the first games coming to Nintendo’s exciting new WiiWare channel – Major League Eating: The Game – and watch firsthand as Major League Eating history is made.

Nintendo Power’s moon, rumblings on the web, and now even more tidbits seem to be pointing in the direction that Castlevania will see releases on the Nintendo DS and Wii. Apparently, Shinji Hirano who is the executive VP for Konami USA, was in San Paulo and went on the record by noting brand spanking new Castlevania games will be coming out for the DS and Wii. It is unconfirmed at this point in time whether or not Mr. Hirano did appear in San Paulo, but the same source claims the two new titles will be shown off next week at a U.S. Konami event.

The English season may well be over, but PES Rankings is here to reduce the withdrawal symptoms for football fans and PES 2008 fans everywhere!

As the domestic leagues draw to a close this weekend, football fans may feel aggrieved at the lack of competitive matches available to them this Summer. Konami UK has the perfect solution: PES Rankings – the only truly official league for PES 2008, the world’s greatest football game.

PES Rankings is a simple to use online system wherein players can see how their PES 2008 skills compare to those of like-minded fans. Now in its fourth official season, over 55,000 people have registered and are competing in their own mini-leagues and in online matches with PES 2008 fans from all over the country. And while most domestic teams play a meagre 38-44 league games per season, the current PES Rankings season has seen over 32,000 top-level matches played already!

And that’s not all. In a season that began in October 2007 when PES 2008 launched, an average of 168 matches have been played per day, with an incredible 252,728 goals scored! This equates to 3.45 goals per match – a considerably better figure than some teams can boast – with the average Rankings player notching up 5.54 matches per month, with the majority played in the early evening. And it is simplicity itself to join…

Visitors to www.pesrankings.com can register to play, and an activation email will be sent to start an account. Once initiated, the player is free to create their own tournaments and set up leagues with their mates. The PES Rankings system streamlines tournaments into a definitive and ever-changing roster of the best-rated players, while also keeping tally of smaller individual personalized tournaments. Every game of PES 2008 that entrants play contributes to the player’s individual ranking, while users are invited to establish mini-leagues or cup tournaments against their friends.

Players log the results of matches, and points are awarded for every game played, but via a sliding scale wherein giant killing wins earn the user far more points than wins over their friends. Points can also be lost this way, with high-ranked players forfeiting more points for losing to lower ranked competitors. Players will also be notified of local events. Konami hosts and oversees a number of social events wherein people can get together and take each other on face to face, with additional points awarded for success at such events.

So with the current season at and end, why not sign up? PES Rankings keeps an easy tally of how many times you have whipped your registered mates, and is simplicity itself to use. Sign up today, and take your PES 2008 skills to a whole new level…

8 May, 2008 – The next super-charged generation of brawling rumbles onto Wii with Super Smash Bros. Brawl hitting the shelves in Europe on 27 June, 2008. Packed with a whole host of new features including a bulging character roster, an accessible and intuitive combat arena editor, multiple battle modes, an engrossing adventure mode and, for the first time, the ability to take battles online, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is set to bring the fast, furious and frenetic world of Smash Bros. to the masses!

Super Smash Bros. has always been about pitching Nintendo’s iconic characters against each other and settling long-standing arguments on who is the toughest in four-player bouts. Keeping this concept at its heart, Nintendo has upped the challenge by introducing 16 new characters into the fray – bringing the total playable to 35 – including familiar heroes such as Solid Snake, Wario, Diddy Kong and Sonic the Hedgehog. Never before have gamers had to master their combat style so finely, practicing and perfecting signature moves and combos to ensure they remain on top of the brawling pile.

The introduction of Wi-Fi combat via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection adds a complete new dimension to the brawl, particularly the intense hallmark four-character battles. For the first time, friends and strangers alike can be challenged online either in cooperative teams or as individual fighters. Twisting the concept of spectator mode, coins built up during play can now be bet on matches by viewers, making every game as important as the last. If that wasn’t enough, players are also given the ability to share photos and replays, team up for enjoyable mini-games and even share created environments.

With 35 characters, Wi-Fi connectivity, an enthralling single-player story mode, imaginative and fully customisable arenas, numerous battle modes and much, much more for gamers to discover, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the definitive action game for any wannabe brawler. Let the battle commence!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is in shops 27 June at an estimated retail price of £40/€50.
