One of the many quirky little games on display at last week's Nintendo Media Summit was Ubisoft's Jam Sessions for the DS. The title is described as a "music experience" that turns the DS into a guitar that musicians of any level can use to improve their skills. It also allows for players to create ...

The Nintendo Media Summit may not have offered up the huge news, but it did give us one thing that's awesome -- a metric ton (less than a megaton) of trailers for all the games we'll be playing in the coming months. So we thought it might be a good week for a very special video spotlight, and instea...

If this is a league of planetary bodies comprised of many puzzles, we want in. If this is a planet full of puzzle leagues, we want in. Okay, we just want in. Our fondness for puzzle games is well-documented in these parts, so it should be no surprise to you that we want this game. We want it now. Bu...

Joystiq managed to get down with EA's Boogie while at the Nintendo Media Summit and their impressions were quite positive. Not only do they remark that the game looks great, but they also comment that the gameplay was fun and exciting. Also, they got some time with the karaoke portion of the game (w...

The mocking head of Dr. Kawashima is officially a go -- he will be back to taunt you a second time. Joystiq's own man on the scene got a chance for a little hands-on (brains-on?) action with the good doctor at this week's Nintendo Media Summit. There's really not a lot to "fix" when it comes to Br...

The Wii has done many things right (like selling), but one of the common complaints has been the complete lack of online multiplayer gaming. That's all changing though, with the very first online multiplayer Wii title in North America, Pokemon Battle Revolution, arriving on the 25th. The latest in...

The Nintendo Media Summit this week had many quirky games, but one of the most unique and endearing was the DS action/adventure title, Drawn to Life. The coolest part of the game is that you can actually draw your in-game character, his weapons, and even create moving platforms to help you get ove...

Our friends over at Joystiq have already started enacting nefarious plans against us, planned with their newly enlarged brains. The tiny-brains at Wii Fanboy don't stand a chance against the bigness of their horrible brains. How did Joystiq get such big old brains? They got a hands-on preview of...

Colin Torretta headed out to the Nintendo Media Summit for the Joystiq Network to get a little hands-on time with a lot of games, including the upcoming baseball blowout from Take-Two's 2k Sports, The BIGS. The BIGS is a baseball game, sure, but it's not your average game. It's baseball made bigger,...

Everyone is expecting a massive flood of Nintendo megatons from the Nintendo Media Summit today (can you have a flood of megatons? Just go with it.) And, while we have a lot of great coverage of upcoming games to show you, there's nothing that could be called a "megaton." No exclusive new Mario Gala...

After the monumental success of the first Brain Age on the Nintendo DS, it's no surprise that Nintendo would revisit the Brain Age series again. At this week's Media Summit, the press got to play around with their sequel, the cleverly named Brain Age 2. Upon powering on the DS, we are visited by the...

During the press conference with Reggie Fils-Aime, the President of Nintendo of America, he mentioned that some people felt that Nintendo was catering too exclusively to casual gamers with titles like Nintendogs and Brain Age. To this he countered that they had a number of games that appeal more t...

This week's Nintendo Media Summit was a largely first-party affair, but there were a handful of third-party games also being shown off for the Nintendo Wii. The first game I played was Take-Two's baseball title, The BIGS. I was particularly interested in the motion controls and how The BIGS differen...

The most pleasant surprise at this week's Nintendo Media Summit was the EA-developed rhythm/singing game, Boogie. I was pretty skeptical of the game from just the early screenshots that I had seen, and judging from the deserted EA booth, a lot of other people felt the same way. You'll understand t...
