972nd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ignition Banbury Publisher: Ignition Entertainment/Atari Remember Mercury Meltdown? We’re finally playing its Wii-based sequel! Our Thoughts The Mercury Meltdown series is an odd one.

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

929th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ronimo Games Publisher: Ronimo Games Did you know that the only physical release of Swords & Soldiers seems to have been the German version? It’s the only one I could find, at least, which worried me a bit at first. It was […]

874th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Nintendo It’s always a bit weird when both parts of a known horror franchise are on the list when I hadn’t heard of it before the list’s existence.

871st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mindware Corp Publisher: Nintendo With all the digital storefronts disappearing – in particular Nintendo’s offerings disappear early – it feels right to get these indie titles done earlier so I don’t have to worry about disappearing or breaking consoles. So far we’ve […]

861st played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Frontier Developments There was something incredibly charming about LostWinds, an IOS platformer where you controlled the winds that blow a character around, rather than making him jump directly. It felt uniquely suited to touch controls, although I can see […]

822nd played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus/Nintendo Going back to game series we first, and last, played a long time ago, the original Trauma Center was a fun surgery-based game that made good use of the touchscreen. It took me three quarters of the list – […]

797th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Treasure/Nintendo SPD Publisher: Nintendo It hasn’t been that long since I played Sin & Punishment, a rail shooter with quite a bit of movement that became quite chaotic and difficult to keep up with. It took nearly a decade for […]

778th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Amblin Entertainment/EA Los Angeles Publisher:Electronic Arts The Wii is, or was, a popular platform for puzzle games. In part, the controllers allow for a different experience that can tie into the genre well, but the system is also a big hit with […]

751st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Gameboy Advance/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo At this point, two different tasks I’m doing cross. The game after each landmark is informally reserved for a more indie game, while there are two games in the Art Style series, so it’s time I start […]
