The first chapter in the Tales Of Monkey Island series has been released through WiiWare today and Telltale’s design director has told ONM why he thinks Wii is a perfect fit for their games.
“We think the Wii audience is perfect for the kinds of games we make, orientated towards story and characters and casual play – a sofa expeience if you will – and WiiWare is an amazingly effective way to reach that audience.”
The game has two different control methods, one that involves the Wii Remote and another that uses the Classic Controller (for players who prefer more precision).

The new firmware adds Facebook Connect and makes the DSi Camera faster. It also happens to block all current flashcards that work on the DSi. It is possible that the flashcards can be updated to work on version 1.4, but for now this proves that Nintendo is taking action against [...]

MegaStryke, created this awesomely huge Mega Man Chart
I wanted to hunt down every last piece of software or electronic equipment that ran some semblance of a Mega Man game. Every port, every arcade machine, every cell phone app, every game-playing calculator. If there was a toaster that ran a Mega Man-skinned clone of Breakout (there isn’t, I checked) then you can bet it will be in my chart.
The only things not in the chart are budget re-releases and special editions. Other than that, everything I’ve found, regardless of how shady it may appear and to the best of my knowledge, is an official Capcom or [...]
