The Game Seers strike back this week!  Aaron gets all 1,000 achievement points in Assassin’s Creed and Ryan finally got around to beating it since the last Episode, this of course sparks a discussion about Assassin’s Creed which somehow starts the tangent for this week.  Essentially this Episode goes something like this, Assassin’s Creed -> Bioshock 2 and possible Bioshock Movie? -> Video Game movie philosophy -> Mary Jane on the way to legalization in New York? -> Investing in Fast Food stocks the day after its legalized ->  Canadian Bacon / Bacon -> Ryan prefers sausage (no homo) -> Peggle -> Barack Obama Inauguration Photograph and the headless man.

In this week Ryan, Aaron, Jeff, Kyle and Joe go all over the map with random topics once again.  As always the Game Seers share what they’ve been playing this week.  Resident Evil 5 comes up again along with some Sheva side boob. The Game Seers talk about Wolverine, and what people have who have seen the leaked copy thought.  Jeff and Ryan’s ebay woes.  Aaron files his taxes.  Jeff likes the new Eminem video…..  Other random things happen too.  Check it out, while gaming content may be a bit slim this week laughter certainly has a hardy helping.

The Game Seers return after a week off and dive into Resident Evil 5 ***BEWARE OF SPOILERS*** – they also talk about the latest patch for the Wii which enables file swapping with SD cards and wonder if it is too little too late, and what Nintendo’s true motives are.  All around butterfly good feelings when it comes to the upcoming remake/release of Punch Out! for the Wii.  Bioshock 2?  Perhaps Biowaste?  Time will tell.  All this and more awaits in Episode 29!

This week Ryan, Aaron, Jeff and Joe run with the show.  Ryan finally gets his hands on a game again (XBox 360/Wii), Jeff loves Madworld (Wii), Aaron is making a glock in Little Big Planet (PS3) and Joe is into Skate 2 (XBox 360).  Ryan and Aaron were watching the Watchmen, neither was overly impressed with the flick though – some spoilers here so be careful!  The guys also talk movies, skateboarding, fat girls, hacking and bailouts.

2 months later, we discover our heroes still alive and in at least decent condition.  Ryan, Jeff, Kyle and Aaron return to save listeners from their boredom (or send them to it) —  This week we discover Aaron is a rapper at heart, Jeff wants health care, Kyle is still Canadian, and Ryan… well, he is being tormented by demonic pets that piss and shit everywhere, with no XBox to escape to.  We look forward to continuing our regularly scheduled podcast.

Aaron (AKA Mr. IGN Freelancer) was too cool to record this week, and Jeff likely drunk somewhere in a ditch — but still, the show must go on!  Ryan and Kyle wing it talking about their picks for Game of the Year, the Wii’s niche, Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts, and Fable 2.

Finally, another great success for the Wii!  While Wii titles that are genuinely all around good seemingly come far too infrequently, Wario Land: Shake It! was well worth the wait!  Immediately when you pop the game into your Wii you’ll be stepping into the time machine and will feel like you’re back in the golden days of Nintendo.  Wario Land: Shake It (from here on out WLSI) builds upon the great successes of past Nintendo titles without distorting it beyond recognition or fun by excessive use of the Wii’s features.  What I mean by this is that the controls will feel extremely intuitive.  Everything works exactly as you think it would – if you play any Wii games at all you know that this is becoming less and less common.  You hold the Wiimote sideways and use the buttons like a simple NES title.  While there is some waggle involved it isn’t to the point where it is over done.  For instance, to get the coins out of a bag of money you shake the Wiimote until the bag is empty.  A quick downward flick of the Wiimote will make Wario blast at the ground which is necessary throughout the game to solve the puzzles of each stage and find the treasures hidden within.

While the game is of course not in HD – it still will look great on an HDTV with the Nintendo component cables.  The actual artwork and graphics of the game are quite impressive!  The cartoonish style images are colorful, fun, and pretty straight forward.  The game looks and feels a lot like Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land for the original Game Boy.  Wario will use familiar moves like jumping up and smashing the ground or charging into enemies and breakable bricks.  What the game does not have are the various power up hats, which really doesn’t detract from the game experience as every power Wario does have is all you’ll need.  Each level has 3 treasures hidden within — trying to find them all is a rewarding experience alone.  You’ll need to think on your feet to solve puzzles while meanwhile trying to make it to the end of the level before time runs out.  The game features a Super Mario Land 3 (NES) map system with a boss at the end of each world.  Each level also has challenges built in such as collecting X amount of gold coins, avoid falling into water, so on and so forth – which continues to add into the reply factor.  While the game is not very hard, to actually get the full extent you will need to put time and thought into it.

Like any Nintendo game, an outstanding sound track will play you along in your journey as Wario to accumulate mass wealth and treasure.  Not only does the music really add to the game but simple sound effects are pretty good too – while they may not be the most inventive, they fit.

Overall, Wario Land: Shake It! is most definitely worth the buy for the upcoming holiday season, it is bound to please everyone who owns a Wii!
