Even though it's a holiday here in the US, Nintendo has released a plethora of new downloadable titles for the Wii and DSi. It's a great thing, not simply because OMG moar gamez, but because it gives us a distraction from the day's festivities. There's only so much of Aunt Linda's trip to the Grand ...

Talk about your long-term commitments. The Conduit developer High Voltage Software has just entered into a lifetime agreement with Terminal Reality to use the company's Infernal Engine (right, that's the one that makes Ghostbusters run).

Update: Apparently neither Sega or High Voltage approved this video, and it was uploaded by accident. At the request of Sega and High Voltage, we've removed it from the post. High Voltage dares you.
