Nintendo begins killing off the Wii Shop channel next year

Nintendo has revealed that it will be shutting down one of the cornerstones of Wii: the Wii Shop channel. The good news is that the shut down isn't going to happen for a while yet, though Nintendo will begin winding it down early next year. If you have any titles you'd like to purchase on the Wii Shop then, it's probably best you buy them up sooner rather than later.

Dolphin Wii emulator now lets you buy games from Nintendo online shop

Gaming emulators are a tricky subject, wading through murky gray legal waters. It's even trickier when it comes to trying to actually play legally acquired games, most of which are now available digitally and sold through very specific and proprietary channels. Such is the case, for example, of Wii titles available from Nintendo's Wii Shop Channel. Fortunately for emulation gamers, Dolphin, perhaps the most popular, not to mention working, Wii emulators now lets you do just that.

LEGO Batman Movie game released INSIDE LEGO Dimensions

LEGO Batman Movie game released INSIDE LEGO Dimensions

Welcome to the future of LEGO games - at least for the foreseeable future - as the LEGO Batman Movie heads to LEGO Dimensions. Instead of releasing a whole extra game that'd go on sale now and sell for 3 weeks and sit on store shelves for months thereafter, the LEGO Company might've just gotten smart. Integrating the movie into the LEGO Dimensions universe makes for an awesome impetus to buy the platform and allows the "LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions" remain a viable purchase for months to come.

GameStop rolls Xbox 360, PS3, Wii into one mega bundle

We're already well into the era of Xbox One and PS4, but if you somehow managed to miss out on the previous console generation entirely, GameStop has a new console bundle directly targeted at you. The massive games retailer has announced that it will bundle the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii together, putting a price tag of $160 on the package. Obviously, this is meant to help GameStop clear out its remaining stock of these increasingly obsolete consoles, but it's not a bad deal for someone looking to pick up these older consoles on the cheap.

The Beatles: Rock Band DLC will disappear next month

Rock Band is a game that holds a special place in my heart. Sure, Guitar Hero introduced me to the genre, but I've spent so many nights rocking out with my friends on our sweet plastic instruments. The game has nearly 1,700 downloadable songs that have been released, but starting next month, some of them will disappear forever.

Super Smash Bros Project M is ended, team heads to new project

Super Smash Bros Project M is ended, team heads to new project

The bummer in this situation is the fact that the original team of developers will no longer be working on Project M. The good news is - they're not quitting the business altogether. A side-project, mostly for the fun of it, isn't going to be the end-point for the people behind the popular Super Smash Bros mod-makers, and the mods that've already been made will remain in operation for the foreseeable future.

Wii U 2 in the works: just as it should be

Today you're going to see more than a few stories on how Nintendo is working on their next console release. This would appear at first to be big news - wow, another Wii, coming your way soon!

In an interview earlier this month, Iwata speaks about the next console in line for Nintendo and some features he's hoping it'll have. Nothing too massive - and nothing that'll be released in the immediate future.

Wii U’s five games that’ll make you happy you roll with Nintendo

Nintendo appears very much to be aiming all efforts for a resurgence at the holiday season, and with big hits - proven hits - like Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart, they may well be in for some heavy business. The Wii U hasn't been selling at nearly so high a rate as either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One over the past year - this console was released all the way back in the fourth quarter of 2012, after all - so why would someone want to buy a new Wii U right this minute? Games!
