Usually Saya Hikita is smiling. Not today. Today, she is crying.
Stormtroopers 365 isn't just a year-long photo project that wrapped up last month, it's also proof that like you and I, Stormtroopers love to get their game on.
David Campisi's life is all about exercise and sports.
I just ... lose it when the ... oh I can't spoil that. Seventeen seconds - that's what I'm talking about.
Well this one took us almost completely not by surprise! Sega's countdown clock has ended, revealing a trailer for Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll for the Nintendo Wii.
What better way to cool down a group of games writers in the middle of summer than showing them a video game about snowboarding?
The fact that someone from Nintendo is currently in sole possession of a video of a Kotaku writer playing Birdseye Bullseye has nothing to do with our willingness to publish the following post.
Is Sega planning on doing additional banana grabbing on the Wii? A recently filed trademark for Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll would lead us to believe it might be, adding Wii Balance Board support to the formula.

Alright, well, if Wii Fit wasn't badass enough for you, now you can sign up to have your ass kicked by Jillian Michaels, whose "Fitness Ultimatum" for Wii (out next year) apparently involves an invisible Wiimote and a completely unforeseen monkey-bars peripheral.

Raving Rabbids TV Party is, apparently, crack for kids. How do i know? Tristan was so mesmerized by the game that he pushed through a crowd of onlookers to play the game on the Ubisoft stage.

Who says the Wii isn't for the hardcore gamer? Seems a third-party retailer has been pumping out Wii Balance Board covers that depict casual drugs and/or teh booby. Gamesindustry.biz went tattling to Nintendo about it and got a predictably corporate response.
First Balance Board Blog got hold of a rather bizarre YouTube clip that features - women in jogging leotards? dudes with horrid combovers in corsets and black socks? - running to a 60-Minutes style stopwatch.
