    Lol, these look the absolute shit. Bomb on day one. Unfortunately the Wii doesn't have enough shelf space that the PS2 does to hide these crappy looking ports. Why can't they spend the time and make one really good Wii game then 13 10 minute control-tack-a-thons.

    It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

    Could it be that there is a whole one developer exempt from the rule of 'British = Good Developer' Smilie

    Ninjabread man sounds awesome though. It's so good it doesn't even need textures. Or collision detection.

    Crap in a cup...

    Trying to think of a witty signature after 'Hacker-gate'...

    Oh come on! One of these games has be playable at least, right?

    all those games are crap

    Calm down JB breathe... breathe......

    Candy Land is under attack! This once sweet and tasty land has been taken over by hordes of snapping Cup Cakes, Angry Bees and Jelly Monsters.

    Only one man can stop this evil army of monster cakes. He's one tough cookie; a guy that won't crumble under the pressure......
    'Ninjabread Man' is here!

    Sounds interesting at least!

    thats a joke... 12 ported games....Smilie someone should bomb these people!

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

    Oh...I thought they'd be 12 in 1 for

    Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++


    is this for real?

    *goes to website*


    If I see anyone - woman, man, child, dog - buying these games - I will proceed to drop kick them in the face - and height doesn't matter - me being 5'6 - because I can jump really high.

    well. Ninjabread man I might let it slide - who doesn't want to whoop some ass with the Ninjabread man?!

    Screwing the rules since 1989.

    The games themselves, well, some of them do seem quite original but still, lazy ports = developer scratching their head thinking "why don't our games sell?"

    Cubed3 Admin/Founder & Designer

    Good grief, the cost and time spent porting those games could be better spent making 1 good, new game.

    Of course, publisher logic!
    More games = More chance of success.

    [roll eyes] <-- Tells some truly terrible tales.
    Last update; Mice,Plumbers,Animatronics and Airbenders. We also have the socials; Facebook & G+
