The first time I ever played a WarioWare game, I was drunk.
This week, I’ve been playing the latest entry in Nintendo’s series of wacky compilations of seconds-long “microgames,” the first for Nintendo 3DS (and the first since 2010's WarioWare: DIY). I’ll have a full review for its release on August 3, but for now, I’m still going through all of its features.
It’s nice to see that Nintendo has the ability to laugh at itself a little.
Duck Jam mixes WarioWare style mini-games with a touch of absurdist comedy to tell the story of a bunch of ducks trying to make money. Bills, you could say.

Inception features dreams that are in dreams. Nintendo's newest Wario title, Game & Wario, is kind of like that, too.
Coming November 15 to an iTunes near you, Arranger is a madcap musical adventure that stitches together a Zelda-style RPG, WarioWare-esque mini-games and King's Quest questing and style into an epic tale of world-saving and saxophone-playing.
Leave it to Mario's evil doppelganger to demonstrate the innovative potential of a new piece of hardware. As you can see from this video we shot of Game & Wario at E3 this week, Wario and his friends do a nice job showing off some of the unique ways you can use the Wii U's GamePad controller to play games.…
EA Sports Active 2.0 is probably going to be a healthy product when it is released: software marshaled for good. EA Sports Active 2.0 as demonstrated for me last night was something else, something somewhat intriguing and probably, amusingly dangerous.
