Ars Technica gets some hands-on time with New Super Mario Brothers Wii.Ars Technica gets some hands-on time with New Super Mario Brothers Wii.

It's simple to pick up and play, meaning this is a game for Mario fans as well as their children. Or their wives and fathers. It's going to be hard to find a demographic that won't fall in love with this game, actually... notwithstanding cynical PC gamers.

Next Zelda for the Nintendo Wii to include more body shaking activities.Next Zelda for the Nintendo Wii to include more body shaking activities.

I was secretly hoping they would announce less of this stuff in a new Zelda game. The gameplay mechanics for the last Wii Zelda game got stale really fast. Also, please don't make me go on another elaborate fishing mission again.

That's a shame, I was really rooting for this game. The demo was thoroughly fun to play from start to finish but apparently some of that gameplay was the best it had to offer.

playing the tracks in the iPhone Rock Band works just like its console big brother in that every note you miss causes the music to be interrupted. This seems to add so much more to the game than just tapping along to a song like other similar games on the platform...
