Art Style: BOXLIFE
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: Climb the corporate ladder in the world of BOXLIFE using your wits and… paper? Use the Nintendo DSi stylus to cut and then manipulate the paper into a box shape. Be careful—if you’re not efficient with your cuts, you’ll waste paper and be penalized. R&D mode teaches you new patterns and challenges you to complete various ranks, while FACTORY mode gives you the chance to earn money by making as many boxes as possible from an endless sheet of paper. Success in each mode brings its own reward: Clear ranks to earn a promotion, change your character’s appearance, and use your earnings to acquire new items for your character’s miniature garden. With this game’s stylish graphics and catchy sounds, thinking inside the box isn’t such a bad thing.

SimEarth: The Living Planet
Original platform: TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM
Publisher: Hudson Entertainment
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Violent References
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: An entire planet becomes your laboratory in this large-scale simulation game. Players help foster new life and promote its evolution into life forms of higher intelligence. Guide civilization along the path of evolution until it can achieve Exodus, the ultimate goal of settling on another planet. The basic challenge of the game is to maintain a comfortable environment for the life forms by adjusting atmospheric and geological parameters. Small organisms called Prokaryote and Trichordate will grow and evolve into a multitude of life forms. Making a drastic change is a recipe for disaster. The key to success is making small adjustments and watching how the life forms react. SimEarth also includes planets with environments different from Earth, such as Mars and Venus. Try your hand at terraforming these planets with harsh conditions and creating a world where life can thrive.

    Whoa, Overlord is on Wii? Hopefully that will be a decent Pikmin susbstitute until we get the real Pikmin 3.

  2. Jake Barber says:

    :O Resident Evil port totally snuck up on me! I need to pick that up!

  3. srkelley says:

    Is the mini-golf game any good? And why was I not informed before today that Shin Megami Tensei was hitting the DS? That’s going on the list of future buys.

  4. Muggins says:

    Getting:
    The Conduit
    Overlord: Dark Legend
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor

    and maybe Resident evil or Transformers – will wait on reviews.

    Bank balance 🙁
    Me 🙂

  5. Joe says:

    The Conduit, this one kinda fell off my radar and I’m glad it did. I have a renewed interest in it, despite someone saying that movement was slow.

  6. BlueRocks says:

    Nothing for me.

    Waiting for Little King’s Story.

  7. Andrew G. says:

    When I heard from IGN’s Nintendo team podcast that The Conduit was only about a 4-6 hour game in the single-player mode, I’ve decided against picking it up. My wireless signal is sort of weak, so I can’t play games online (only download them), crippling my ability to enjoy the online mode.

    The first Overlord on 360 was really fun, and I’m kinda looking forward to the new one. Can’t afford it right now, but maybe soon. ;D

    @srkelley

    Here’s a video of the mini golf game. It actually looks pretty good, and for only 500 points, I’ll be getting it.

  9. Mohan says:

    I am so torn between the Conduit and Overlord…will be getting Conduit though as I have it reserved and then get Overlord couple of weeks later.

  10. shmian says:

    I want the moving memo pad now

  11. skeptical says:

    Dawn of Discovery — My pick for “overlooked game of the month”. Nobody has said anything about it, but this game should offer a lot of fun and replay value.

    The Conduit — Won’t be revolutionary, but will be a fun game in a genre sorely lacking on Wii. I’m not buying right away but will be getting a copy at some point in the not too distant future.

    Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil — Already bought the GameCube remake for under $10. Nice to see this available, but unless this adds something significant (like revamped Wii controls) I’m not interested.

  12. Run line 10 says:

    Conduit is going to be fun! See you online !

  13. Lite (on a crappy PC!!) says:

    I’m getting The Conduit of course, but I dunno whether I should get the Transformers DS games. The first movie-based games were like short GTA games, but they were fun. I hope these provide a challenge.

  14. Paul says:

    Overlord: Dark Legend is NOT Overlord 2. Just thought I’d point that out before someone decides which one to get.

    I’m all over Dawn of Discovery. I love Anno 1701, so I’m looking forward to moving back in time to the 15th century.

  15. InvisibleMan says:

    Must… resist… buying… Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor…!

    AAAGH! TOO MANY GAMES, DAMMIT!!
