HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT SPLASHES UP GOOD, CLEAN FUN THIS SUMMER WITH “FIRST PERSON SOAKER” VIDEOGAME, WATER WARFARE
Wii Owners get Drenched with this Downloadable title as they try to keep Cool in Water Warfare
San Mateo, Calif. – March 23, 2009 – Wii™ owners will have a new way to beat the heat this summer as Hudson Entertainment splashes up Water Warfare, a “first person soaker” videogame, exclusively downloadable for WiiWare™. The family-friendly “soaker” is set to be published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT. The game has been rated E10+ for Everybody 10+ by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

“Water Warfare is the perfect summer videogame to beat the heat.” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. “It’s easy to download and play this ‘first person soaker’ – just get your squirt gun ready and go for it!”

In Water Warfare, players go head to head or team up as they run around playgrounds and beaches to drench each other with squirt guns. They’ll be able to protect themselves with, what else, raincoats, towels and more. There are other items, like the umbrella, which can attack and defend at the same time! With different types of squirt guns, pick-up items, offline and eight player online multiplayer, there’s tons of squirt gun fun to be had. Throughout the game, players use the Nunchuk™ to control movement, aim using the Wii Remote™, and can load up on different squirt guns, such as shotguns and rocket launchers, to soak their opponents.

Contest winner

Posted on 10 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in Site updates | 11 Comments | 0 Likes

I promised that I would announce the winner of our free VC/WiiWare contest this weekend, and the winner’s name is below. Before revealing the winner, however, I do want to send out a huge “thank you” for everyone who has posted a comment over the last few weeks. I realize that I’ve said this quite a lot as of late, but I believe that just one comment can go a long way towards building a community and leading to Nintendo Everything’s growth. I honestly appreciate every single comment that has contributed to the site.

Now as far as the contest goes, for those who did not win, please do not feel discouraged. I plan on hosting more contests on the site, so know that you may have a chance to win something in the future! I think I better post the winner now before I ramble on too long…

33-year-old Robert Snively was arrested at 1:30 a.m and was charged with disorderly conduct. Snively was playing Guitar Hero, but apparently he was doing so rather loudly. Police officers arrived at the man’s house after complaints were received from neighbors. The police issued Snively a citation after hearing his excuse. He said that he became very excited while playing with a friend online, but police obviously did not believe that was an important reason to disrupt the neighborhood. Snively will need to go to court in April as a result of repeat offenses.
