[News] [Retro] [Wii]

On today's agenda: two V.C. titles, and possibly the most disgusting game ever conceived for Wii Ware.

Wii Ware

Major League Eating - The GameMajor League Eating: The Game
Mastiff · 1-2 Players · Rated E10+ · 1000 Wii Points

As featured on ESPN during the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest, NY, MLE: The Game is built much like a classic fighting simulation, with offensive attacks and defensive counter moves, MLE: The Game requires players to master a smorgasbord of weapons including bites, burps, belches, mustard gas and jalapeño flames while cramming and chewing food at a world-class pace. It’s not for the faint of heart, the slow of reflex, or those with an overly strong aversion to a Technicolor reversal of fortune.

Major League Eating: The Game uses the Wii Remote to simulate a variety of eating techniques including the cram, toss, and ‘typewriter.’ Burp-offs and Hot Potato challenges during the contests keep the competition intense and eaters on their toes. Major League Eating: The Game is for one or two players, offers online play and a leader board. MLE: The Game also features eleven of the best-known professional eaters in the world including Takeru Kobayashi, the Japanese eating phenomenon, and American Joey Chestnut, current champion of the world together with eaters such as Tim ‘Eater X’ Janus, Patrick ‘Deep Dish’ Bertoletti, Crazy Legs Conti, Sonya ‘The Black Widow’ Thomas, and ‘The Lovely’ Juliet Lee.

 

Virtual Console

Donkey Kong 3 - NESDonkey Kong 3
NES · 1-2 players · Rated E · 500 Wii Points · Nintendo · 1984

Based on the third game in the enormously popular arcade series, Donkey Kong 3 introduces an exterminator named Stanley as he desperately tries to protect the flowers in his greenhouse from Donkey Kong. Armed only with a can of bug spray, Stanley must force Donkey Kong higher and higher into the greenhouse rafters until Donkey Kong is off the screen and the next stage is reached. Not surprisingly, Donkey Kong isn’t going to move without a fight, so he sends wave after wave of bugs, bees and other creatures toward Stanley. Not only must Stanley repel the insects in order to save the flowers, but he’ll also have to keep an eye out for projectiles thrown by Donkey Kong himself. If Stanley is good enough, he’ll be able to grab a can of more powerful bug spray and really get Donkey Kong moving. It all adds up to frantic fun that anyone can enjoy.

 

Ninja Command - Neo GeoNinja Commando
NEOGEO
· 1-2 players · Rated E10+ · 900 Wii Points · Alphi Denshi · 1992

Ninja Commando is a vertically scrolling action game released by ADK in 1992. Players choose from among three ninjas-Joe, descended from the Koga ninja; Rayar, a woman who has learned the ways of the Iga ninja; and Ryu, descendant of the famous ninja Fuma Kotaro-as they pursue the merchant of death known as Spider, who plans to use a time machine to bring havoc to the world. The battle spans seven time periods, including the Stone Age, the Egyptian era and the Japanese Civil War era. Each hero features a variety of attack options in addition to their own normal attacks, including a deadly attack that inflicts damage upon all enemies on the screen, special ninja-arts attacks performed by inputting specific commands, and a powerful attack unleashed by taking on the “shape of the beast” when three scrolls have been collected. The game also supports two-player cooperative play, so you’re welcome to bring a friend and enjoy taking on the evil Spider together.
