Apologies if anybody was expecting this. Been a bit busy lately and haven't actually been on the Wii for a while.

JULY 2007

This month's cover sees ol' Big Evil himself giving some, well, big evils. Either that or Paul Bearer (may he REST. IN. PEACE.) dropped some dirty air biscuits in the photoshoot.

A strong month with two key Mario titles to tide Wii owners over the summer holidays. I have Strikers but it felt too powerup-heavy, as someone who plays a lot of football games and Super Paper Mario is good from what I remember but not something I'm clamouring to play again.
I'm not sure how Mortal Kombat would have played and I wasn't that keen on the PS2-era MK games like Deadly Alliance so I'm not particularly interested in that.

Any interest in this lot?

*REVIEWS*



Bingo! (85%+):
 

Good (70-84%):
 

Not so bad (50-69%):

"Biceps the size of big cows" is a stone cold NGamer classic. I'll dig this one out on my day off tomorrow.

On the Wii front (what happened to the DS?)

Super Paper Mario, This now would interest me a lot and one I may pick up on my new Wii

Eledees, No idea what it is buy always hear good things and like above might be picked up

Mortal Kombat Armageddon, I did buy this on Wii as it had a extra character and something else, can only really playing it with my cousin

Mario Strikers Charged Football, Bought when it came out and would have done all the cups then got bored and trade it in but I do remember we brought it back for a bit and had a online league going.

Both the big Wii releases from Nintendo in this issue were slightly disappointing to this user. I feel like I talked about Super Paper Mario quite recently but just in case: never really fulfilled the potential of its big ideas, despite an excellent story and some great levels. Mario Strikers Charged Football was one of the most frustrating games on the Wii for me: an insane difficulty curve sucked the fun out of it wholesale. I enjoyed our online league, though - the AI wasn't such a douchebag then. Wink

It's disappointing that these last few issues don't seem to be up for download on Out of Print Archive or anywhere like that, as I'd be quite keen to look back on the 20 Nintendo Moments Life Was Made For.

I've got a sense of déjà vu here though. Have we not already spoken about Super Paper Mario, Cooking Mama and Mario Strikers Charged in the last couple of threads? Without the magazine to hand for a butchers, all I can add here is that Spider-Man 3 was utter keech. It looked and played much worse than the GameCube prequels. Mad

That's the problem with some of these mags - they often review the Japanese, and then the American and then the UK version. I stuck to juts UK reviews for this one and ignored DS as the main purpose of these is to revisit early Wii games.

Unfortunately, I've discovered Rocket League and have been addicted to that. If I can pull myself away from it and turn the Wii on (SSX Blur is in there but not yet played it) then I'll get a bit more into (and out of) these. Pretty sure Resident Evil 4 Wii is in the next month or two's issue and I haven't played that for at least a year - definitely up for that.

Aye, and the early days of the console exacerbates this. When the shovelware rolls in, we'll dream of reading about Contact for the 6th time.

I've just started this issue, and look forward to some NGamer nonsense!
