Preview of Upcoming 2009 Games from Konami
I recently took a look at Konami’s upcoming games for 2009. While most game publishers underserve the Wii, the majority of Konami’s games were either Wii exclusives or were available on all platforms, so I wound up looking at "Silent Hill: Shattered Memories," "Pop'n Music," "Walk It Out," "Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3," "Tornado Outbreak" and "Karaoke Revolution."
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories - Preview
During a hands-on demo Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Konami’s Wii “reimagining” of the 1999 Playstation game Silent Hill I saw some very promising things and some stuff that worried me.
Preview of Upcoming 2009 Games from THQ
I had high hopes when I went to see THQ’s lineup of Wii titles for 2009, since in the last year they have produced two of the Wii’s best games, "Deadly Creatures" and "De Blob." Alas, this year THQ is offering a middling collection of kids games, casual games and movie tie-ins such as "Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter," "Up," "Spongebob’s Truth or Square," "Marvel Super Hero Squad" and "World of Zoo."
Preview of Upcoming 2009 Games from Ubisoft
Ubisoft's 2009 Wii roster isn’t especially exciting, but a couple of games do show promise, including "Academy of Champions: Soccer, CSI: Deadly Intent and "Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage." Also previewed are "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up" and "Rabbids Go Home."
Red Steel 2 - Game Preview
The original was forgetable, but this sequel promises to be one of the Wii's best games. Will it keep that promise?

Preview of Upcoming 2009 Games from D3 Publisher
I took a look at D3’s upcoming Wii games for 2009. When I saw the list of games they were showing I was unenthused, but they have some surprisingly promising games coming up.
Scooby-Doo! First Frights - Preview
I recently took a look at "Scooby-Doo! First Frights", an action adventure game being published by Warner Bros. Like other Scooby-Doo games, this one is unlikely to be one of the great games of 2009 but will quite likely be a fun little romp.
Mini Ninjas - Hands-on Preview
]It’s not surprising to see a cute, family friendly action game for the Wii, but it is a little surprising to see one developed by IO Interactive, best known for the violent, amoral "Hitman" series and other gritty, gory titles. Their upcoming game "Mini Ninjas", which I played a bit of recently, is quite a departure from this familiar ground.

"GoldenEye 007" Hands-On Preview
GoldenEye 007 is a remake/reimagining of the 1997 N64 classic of the same game. I never played the original, but it is considered by many to be one of the greatest video games of all time. I saw the new version demoed in New York. I played a little of the multiplayer, but only watched during the single player demo.

'Rock Band 3' - Hands-On Preview
