Monday Update -- Cave Story, Review Choice
Nintendo made it easy this week with one WiiWare release and, sadly, no Virtual Console releases. Pixel's Cave Story finally made its way to the Wii and for 1200 Wii Points you can play this PC indie classic on your Wii. I'm looking forward to finally getting around to playing this and, hopefully, posting a review. Fans of Metroidvania-style games should definitely give this a shot.
Speaking of reviews, I'll be reviewing XBLIG Puzzle RPG War of Words this week. Anyone who can download this should try the demo. Very addicting blend of Puzzle Quest and Scrabble.
And, finally, I've been doing a little writing for gaming site/blog ForceDisconnect. Anything by "Shin Hogosha" is mine and usually has to do with XBLIG stuff. Last week saw an interview with Gnomic Studios' Aranda Morrison about their title Square Off as well as a recap of a few of my favorite XBLIG games from that week. Definitely been fun writing for someone else, looking forward to posting more on there.
See you guys in a few days!
