Everyone loves a good alien invasion FPS, and The Conduit was the best at utilizing this style on the Wii system, creating a game that challenged any similar game at the time on the PS3 or Xbox 360 systems. This title was previously only available on the Wii system but it will soon be coming to a surprising new platform: Android. That’s right, this Nintendo exclusive title is jumping over all other home consoles and headed straight to the mobile gaming world. While the game itself is free, if you want the game past level 2, you will have to pay($4.99 for the full game or $2.99 for levels 3-6 or 7-9). Even if you own the original The Conduit on your Wii system, this game is still a must have as it is improved through the graphic capabilities of Android devices and also the use of touch screen technology to make a more enjoyable gaming experience than was available on the Wii. -Ryan Baxter
As great as this title was on the Wii, the Android has taken it to a whole new level. Go check it out today!

There you have it folks; the Wii Mini is on its way to Europe next month. The system comes packed with a red Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk to get new owners started, and the hardware itself has a whole new look. Although the system may be a step backwards compared to even the original Wii, I’m sure some of you more casual gamers will get a kick out of the Wii Mini.

This weekend, NCharged editor Bobby Mauldin and I started playing some Donkey Kong Country Returns on Wii, and I was instantly inspired to feature it as our game of the week. Honestly, this is the finest sidescroller obtainable on Wii, and definitely has the most precise controls out of the genre. I’ll give you fair warning: this game is not for the casual gamer. This is an intense platformer that will undoubtedly cause a lot of frustration for novices to the genre. If you guys want, we can even put up a review on this game to give you a closer look at our opinions. Go out and try the title for yourself, since it’s pretty low-priced by now.
If you own a 3DS, then you might want to wait until later this year, when Nintendo releases a mobile port of the game called Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. -Greg Boe (admin)
Pirates… I think I’ve clarified enough in the past about why I despise video game piracy. It’s just not right to the developers who put all that work into the game, spending barely any time with their family and friends to make each masterpiece. On top of this, pirating a video game is just as bad as driving to your local game store and stealing the game. Nintendo is cracking down on piracy by insisting that the U.S. Trade Representative does something about all the countries that bootleg their games. Also, Nintendo wants certain file-sharing sites to be shut down to stop the madness.
Nintendo has suffered huge losses because of video game piracy, so help them out and don’t be a pirate!! -Greg Boe (admin)

Hmm… I dunno, Nintendo… The Wii Mini is practically a downgrade of the Wii, which is already a dinosaur compared to other consoles on the market today. That’s like Nintendo releasing the DS lite right now. It was a good idea back in the day, but now we have the 3DS and 3DS XL, which can play all the same games, plus 3DS exclusive games. While the Wii Mini already released last year in Canada, and was said to be exclusive to the region, we’re now seeing listings of the remodel surface in Europe. Now, all I’m wondering is why anyone in Europe would want a Wii without surport for GameCube games, WiFi, S-Video and Component video cables, or an SD card slot. I dunno…

Preceding Skylanders titles have used the same Portal of Power to bring your figurines into the game, but the latest adventure uses a more advanced portal. In Skylanders: Swap Force, players can take the halves of the new figurines and switch them to make over a hundred crazy different combinations. Yeah, it’s a bit confusing. The new portal will also read all of your old figurines. Check out the video below for more information.

It’s about that time of the year, where every gamer starts looking forward to E3. Every year, members of the press (like us) are able to demo tons of games and systems, watch new trailers, and hear legendary names in gaming such as Shigeru Miyamoto. …And if we’re lucky we might even get to see another heated discussion between Reggie Fils-Aime and GameTrailers’ Geoff Keighley.
To make a long story short, Nintendo fans have a lot to look forward to every year in June. Games that we’ll probably see more of are The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Reborn, the next Super Smash Bros., Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei, Yarn Yoshi, and maybe even the untitled Zelda project we heard about centuries ago.
