DC Comics is picking up the slack on game-based comics that has been ignored by most of the other major publishers. We look at the Gears of War graphic novel this week.
The Crossfire Integrated Remote Pistol is the best zapper released so far for the Wii. It features simple controls that nonetheless work with just about any game, not just shooters.
Although a bit off in the attempt, Cursed Mountain tries to take the kiddie image of the Wii and replace it with an adult-themed survival horror game.
The Buckshot Pump-Action Shotgun adds some real firepower to the Wii, but only works with shooters that have relatively simple control schemes.
In the same silly style of Katamari Damacy, The Munchables will have you scratching you head in confusion, all the while having a great time despite yourself.
Although looked on as a bit of a kiddie console, the Wii is trying to grow up with more adult games. The Conduit is the best step in this direction yet, and makes for a fun experience.
Although Dead Rising was a fantastic game on the 360, Dead Rising: Chop till You Drop is a bit too truncated to be great on the less impressive Wii hardware.
House of the Dead: Overkill is a game that thankfully never takes itself too seriously. The developers set out to make a bad game, and as it turns out, made a really good one.
A new service called OnLive threatens to kill the consoles, offering top tier games online through a TV without the need for a PS3, Wii or 360. Sounds too good to be true? Well, perhaps.
Think of the new Prince of Persia as a total reset of the series, taking the game in a fascinating new direction that for the most part is a refreshing wind of change.
