Wii Orchestra Demo

This game is a bit different. I suppose it's similar to games such as Guitar Hero. Basically you get to be the conductor of an orchestra. Move your hands in certain ways to change the tempo, pitch and variations within the song. This is just a tech demo, so we'll have to see what it looks like when it's finally release.

Super Mario Galaxy Game Play Video

This sequel takes Mario into the void of outer space, jumping back and forth from random pieces of debris. As you can see in the preview, some gravity grapple devices seem to be present that help with the lack of gravity. They also provide Mario with some Spiderman-like moves. The physics, while playable, aren't very realistic. Small pieces of rock have enough gravity to hold the weight of Mario on his feet. But, with a single jump, he goes from firmly planted on the rock to floating helplessly in outer space.

Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Video Preview and Review

Odd game. It appears you play as a large guy, and your goal is to bash the bad guys (and other nearby objects) with your sledge hammer. This looks to me like it'll be fun for the first hour or so I play it, after which, it'll lose it's novelty.

After seeing this preview i'm pretty sure I won't be buying this one, unless there's some more exciting game play that i'm missing. I even looked for another video, this was all I found, which seems to be the same boring game play:

Ninja Bread Man - Video of some actual game play

I've always wanted someone to release a nice ninja adventure game, although this isn't exactly what I had in mind. In this game you fight in a 3d world filled with cakes and other sweets. If that isn't odd enough, you actually play as a cookie/ninja guy who seems to have some mad ninja skills. Doesn't appear to have a release date yet, but I'll probably give it a try once it comes out.

Billy the Wizard Wii Video Game Preview

Here's a new game I've yet to hear about until today, when I stumbled upon it via YouTube. Not sure when this title (Billy the Wizard) is coming out, but looks like an interesting game. Not too original, but original on a adventure/platform title is rare.

I know I've played a game similar to this, in which you played as a young dragon and had to fly around and do quests to grow up and burn things with your breath. I think it was for the ps1 or ps2, does anyone remember what game I'm thinking about? it's on the tip of my tongue and bugging me.

Wii Preview - Video Collage of Many Wii Games

I decided to show something a little different today. This video shows a collage of many fast paced Wii game play videos. Really great to watch to see what types of games are available for the Wii. Switches back and forth between gamers demonstrating the movements of the wiimote/wii nunchucks and actual video game play.
