We're guessing you didn't peg us for Pokemon fanboys -- it's OK, common misconception. Truth is, we just can't get enough of Nintendo's little cash cow, and this time they've managed to combine the money-making brilliance of the collectible card game with a bit of arcade excitement / extortion. How can they lose? Pokemon Battrio is the name of the game, and allows for 3-on-3 battles with little collectible Pokemon "coins" that are dispensed from the machine -- for a fee, of course. You slap your coins onto the machine, which senses your Pokemon and sends them into battle at your bidding. Not quite as exciting as, say, online Wii multiplayer, but it'll do in a pinch.
