I hate to report bad news and if the following rumor pans out to be true, Wii gamers everywhere will cry buckets full of tears. It seems like the incredible Marvel VS Capcom 2 may be headed to a console near you….Just not on Wii. The ESRB recently rated the amazing fighting franchise and sadly, the Wii console was no where to be found. Mark this one down under Rumor for now but let’s keep a close watch on this one.
Here is the (long) list of what everyone can expect this week for your favorite Nintendo console. Tak actually looks pretty decent and if you got the money, pick up Dokapon Kingdom- you won’t be disappointed. What’s everyone getting?

Wii Wish You a Merry Christmas, Wii Wish You a Merry Christmas, Wii Wish You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Below is a list of what we consider to be the best bet for your gaming needs this year for Nintendo Wii. We have broken down our list of 9 (random Number I know), must-have titles that will satisfy every gamer on your “holiday” list (After all it is October and Good Ol’ Saint Nick will be breaking into your homes soon). So, without further ado, here we go (in no particular order):
**Box Arts represented may not be the final box art for the title**
Sonic Unleashed- 11/18/2008
It looks like the blue blur is FINALLY back and better than ever. Break-neck speeds, great graphics and tight gameplay make this game a must have for any gamer out there. The release date for the title is currently penciled in for November 18th 2008 and I couldn’t be happier. The title combines fantastic next gen capabilities with classic Sonic 2D gameplay! Pick this one on your list.
World Of Goo- 10/13/2008 (WiiWare)
This is a personal plea to all who are reading this “festive” post; BUY THIS TITLE AT ANY COST (within legal limits). World of Goo was developed by 3 individuals and looks better than most “retail” Wii titles. The game recently received an amazing 9.5 from the good guys over at IGN and will be beloved by many. If you download one title this year for WiiWare, let this be it (yes even over the almighty Mega Man 9). Click here to check 2-d boys official site.
Tales of Symphonia- 11/11/2008
If you are an avid reader of Gameonnintendo (And hopefully you are) you already know that yours truly is awaiting this game like the second coming. After falling in love with the Gamecube title, the gaming gods have answered my prayers and are bringing an amazing sequel to one of last generation’s best titles by far. I love the fact that we are going to get to play some of the old cast as well as a slew of new ones. I applaud the graphical style of the title and I am very eager to play this one into the “Wii” hours of the night.
Ah the red headed step child of the Nintendo Family. There is so much to say about Wii Music I don’t know where to start. I know some of you are already cursing at your computer screens on the inclusion of this game but mark my words, it’s still going to be huge. Remember the feeling when you first put in Wii Sports? I think that IF the gaming community gives Wii Music a try, we may have another “Wii Sports” type feel. This game will be a great addition to your Wii library especially if you have “casual gamer” in your household.
Call Of Duty: World At War- 11/11/2008
Ever since the Wii was introduced, FPS fans have been foaming at the mouth as to the possibilities that the Wii mote and nunchuck can produce on a console based system. The control scheme just seems to fit the console and, after a little over a years time, companies are finally getting it right. If you want a good FPS on Wii this year, purchase Call of Duty 5. Call of Duty 4 owned pretty much 3 months of my life with the 360 release and its predecessor looks to be no different. Great graphics, awesome controls and online play should make this title an easy choice for gamers everywhere. Don’t pass this 3rd party title up, we missed the last Call of Duty title on Nintendo, show your support and buy this one!
Ok, so this one may be a long shot of a “must have” title but if you’re an RPG/Party game fan, this quirky title will be right up your alley. The game is described as a Mario Party with an RPG twist, which sounds pretty interesting to me. The stylized characters and the promising gameplay make this 3rd party gem hard to pass up. The fact that this game is made by Atlus does same something for this overlooked, but promising game. IGN seemed pretty pleased with it, so put it on your Christmas…I mean “holiday” wish list and you won’t be disappointed. For all of those still skeptical, make sure you read the IGN article as they said it would be a sleeper hit of ’08.
Guitar Hero: World Tour- 10/26/2008
Does this game really need any explanation on why you should ask good ol’ Saint Nick for this game? It’s the amazing Guitar Hero franchise with full band support and it looks fantastic. Downloadable content, full instruments and an amazing soundtrack puts this title on top of many gamers Christmas lists for 2008. This franchise has gained mass appeal and is a no brainer for your favorite gamer.
Using motion-sensing, gamers can slash, stab and whip their way across a plethora of stages and environmental elements with numerous surrounding objects as weapons. This first time Castlevania pits players against each other in a one on one brawler that would make any vampire smile. Fun Fact : Players are also able to compete head-to-head using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and connect with Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia on the Nintendo DS to unlock bonus gameplay content.
Action, action and more action. If your gamer craves awesome environments, huge enemies and great boss fights, this is your game. Improving on nearly every facet of its Playstaion counterpart, Rygar looks to fill the much needed need for a great action title on Wii. The games graphics look pretty decent and gameplay should be fun and interesting. Look for this one as a late stocking stuffer.What title(s) do you think should’ve made the cut?!
I know that this isn’t a Nintendo post but I have a love for Halo titles. Check out the awesome quote below regarding the 360 juggernaut title (HUGE props to Mama GameOn for the tip):
Ending weeks of speculation, Halo developer Bungie finally took the wraps off its newest project at a shindig in Tokyo yesterday. It’s called Halo 3: Recon, and it’ll be landing on the Xbox 360 next fall.

Replay Saturday. It’s a column that I have sadly gotten away from doing but am happy to announce that I will be re-implementing this feature from now on. I have received millions upon millions of emails (may be exaggerated a bit), telling me to bring this column back so here we go! If you don’t know what “Replay Saturday” is, here’s the deal; yours truly picks out a title from the Gameonnintendo vault that I haven’t played in a while and replay my former gem and fall in love with the game all over again.
If anyone out there decides to join me in this fun occasion, let me know what you picked for your own personal “Replay Saturday”
Today’s weapon of choice, Wii Sports!

I know that we have had extensive coverage on this title but if you watch the following debut trailer, you will understand why. Enjoy the trailer gamers and get ready, this game is going to set the standard for all other RPG’s for Wii.
How does a company (in this case Nintendo) skip out on a very important videogame trade show (TGS) and still own the event?! 3 words gamers, Monster Hunter 3. Check out that 4 hour long line. This one is going to be HUGE. 3rd parties take notice, if you put time and effort into your title you will succeed on a Nintendo platform.
