Following Best Buy's example, Amazon has marked down its Wii copies of Okami to $29.99 from its standard $39.99 pricing, throwing in free shipping for good measure. You won't even have to leave your house to take advantage of this deal, now. In fact, you don't even have to get up from your chair! We...

We love Sundays, as there are always new game sales to look forward to. Luckily, this week there are some sweet deals on a few Wii titles. Scouring through the ad listings at Cheap Ass Gamer, the ones we found of interest include: Okami for $29.99 at Best Buy Boom Blox with a free $10 gift car...

Uh, no post title, it is in fact not Iron Man (although, we should say the prospect of seeing the film this weekend sounds nice). What we're all going to be playing, no doubt, is Mario Kart Wii. With its multitude of tracks, online play and plethora of control schemes available (got to love that w...

Europe, sad news: you're getting Okami. No, no, that's not the bad part, as the really horrible part of this news is just when you're getting the game. That day is June 13th. It's a tough wait, we know, but the critics seem to think it's worth your time. Europe, are you going to wait for the Wii ...

In order to share the new replacement Okami boxarts with people outside the U.S. (to whom they can't ship the printed copies), Capcom has made the boxarts available as PDF downloads, in a big, take-it-to-Kinko's resolution. Capcom's one-time blunder is becoming more of a boon to fans every day. We...

Lightning does strike twice, and by lightning we mean botched cover art. The Okami Wii box cover wasn't the only victim of the IGN watermark, as it turns out the BradyGames strategy guide also proudly displays the blemish. The automatic reaction to this information would be, "Well, duh! They got th...

Apparently IGN is the place to go for high-resolution Okami artwork. BradyGames' Okami strategy guide is also marred by IGN branding -- but a different logo, and in a different place. At first, we thought this was a windup from a tricky Kotaku commenter -- then we looked at the cover on the Brady ...

We're not sure if this is a really poor attempt at being funny or a touch of comedic brilliance. We're leaning toward the latter, as the hilarious editing mistakes (whether they're intentional or not) remind us of those great Tim & Eric pieces featuring John C Reilly. OK, in the time it took us...

Capcom did a very admirable job of making up for an error that nobody but snarky bloggers actually cared about. A lot more people cared once we found out that beautiful replacement artwork was available! We wonder, however, how many people actually cared -- how many people were offended who eithe...

The Okami boxart issue discovered this week, or Watermarkgate, could have been a huge embarrassment for Capcom. Instead, it's become a totally great situation for everyone who bought the game. Capcom announced via their blog that any Okami owner can receive a free replacement boxart in one of thre...

Capcom has responded to the Okami Wii box snafu by offering replacement cover artwork "to better reflect the artistic nature of the game," which we presume is a more professional way to say "to better remove the reflection of the IGN watermark." Head over to the Cover Artwork Redemption page (ye...

Personal story time, kiddies. I went out this morning to run some errands and pick up Okami, when, as I was leaving the Target, I noticed something weird about the boxart. I didn't recall us posting it on the site, so I spent some time glancing at the cover. It was then I noticed something very we...

Already having Okami for the PS2 is the most valid excuse for not buying the game on the Wii. If you fall into this group, you're probably still tempted to make the purchase because of the added motion controls. Should that not be enough to get your wallets in action, though, you might want t...

For most of you, the standout title this week is likely to be Okami. Hey, it's the same for us, too! In fact, we're prepared to say that Okami is the best game we never played! Of course, that's not to say that Okami is the only game that the lot of you will be checking out this week. Several othe...

Create some awesome Okami-inspired art, put it on DeviantArt and Capcom might reward you with a Nintendo Wii. Contest rules here. We mention this because, quite frankly, we'd love to see the work you make. Check out the highlights for today: Joystiquery The best of WoW Insider: April 8-15, 2008...

If you've preordered Okami (from the Capcom Store, that is), Capcom has gone out of its way to reward your loyalty. You can expect some goodies in the mail soon (you lucky dogs), including a thank-you card embedded with seeds. That means you can either save the card in a shoebox full of mementos fr...

The beautiful, imaginative Okami was perhaps one of the most-requested ports among Wii fans, and at last we're going to get a chance to get our hands on it. From the early reviews, it looks like it has been worth the wait ... though, surprisingly, the title's lowest score (by far) to date has come...
