Farewell to the Wii: The Channels

A unique user interface that stood the test of time and provided some fresh ideas about content on a game console.

Now that we’re just waiting around for our Wii U pre-orders to be fulfilled, we’ve started thinking back on our Wii experience. There were great games and there were stupid, gimmicky games.  There was the much maligned 480p output and the long wait for external storage.  There were also the channels.

PixlBit's 2011 Supplemental Awards

Just when you thought awards season was over...

Last month we announced our Game of the Year award winners by genre, platform and overall game of the year, but we weren’t through showcasing the best that 2011 had to offer.  With so many games deserving of the moniker Game of the Year we have decided to expand our awards ceremony into 2012 with the 2011 Supplemental Awards.  These awards seek to recognize games that excelled in a specific area whether it be through technical achievement, sheer enjoyability or utter disappointment.

Come see PixlBit's pick for the top game of the year, as well as the runner up.

Now for the fun part.

Mario and Link Shatter Records on Black Friday

Apparently Mario and Zelda games sell really, really well.

Nintendo hasn’t been doing so well in the sales department lately.  Wii sales are stagnant, the 3DS got off to a rough start and new titles have been few and far between for both systems.  But even with all that considered, when things look bleak for Nintendo they can always count on Link and Mario to do some heavy lifting and they did just that this past “Black Friday” setting records along the way.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review

New controls, new structure, and new enemies help define this series changing game.

“Hey, listen!” Apparently someone at Nintendo got the message. After the release of Twilight Princess, universally, fans were begging for change. While Nintendo seemingly gave their audience everything they ever wanted with the Wii’s first title and the GameCube’s last hurrah, they still weren’t happy. They wanted a reinvention; they wanted something new, something fresh. Well there’s little question about it, Skyward Sword is absolutely the answer to the fans. Though not something wholly new, Link’s latest adventure manages to shake things up enough to make them fresh.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Preview

How Skyward Sword is getting even the most jaded Zelda players excited again.

When it comes to franchise fatigue, the first game that springs to mind is the Legend of Zelda series. Sure, we don’t get a new adventure starring Link every year like, say, Assassin’s Creed or Call of Duty, but I’ve been controlling a mute, green tunic-wearing elf since 1987. I played pretty much every major release in the series until Wind Waker, and I’m just tired of the formula. I don’t think it’s controversial to say that anymore, either; more and more, I hear criticisms of repetition and stale gameplay leveled at the Zelda games. With that being said, you can understand why I was perfectly fine with ignoring the upcoming Skyward Sword and moving on with my life. And yet, somehow I found myself pre-ordering the Limited Edition of the game last week. How did that happen?
