After the blissful torment of 30-plus hours spent in the world of Demon's Souls this past week, I'm going to need something a little more cheerful for my weekend. And New Super Mario Bros. Wii isn't too hard, right?

Truth be told, I've yet to actually dabble in the Wii game, despite intentions to do so previously. But this weekend, Mario, Luigi and a pair of Toads and I will be hopping about wildly in the Mushroom Kingdom. It will be part fun, part work as I consider New Super Mario Bros. Wii for end of year game awards.

And if I'm being completely honest, I may start up a new Demon's Souls character, one capable of wearing more feminine items like those Silver Bracelets. Can you guess which title might already be in the lead for my game of the year choice?

Enough about me. What are you playing this weekend?
