If the Wii isn’t HD, then can we consider the Playstation Move the HD Wii? It would appear to be, at least to some degree, as a few past Wii-exclusive games are making the hop over to the HD PS3. The first game being No More Heroes, which gets an updated port on the PS3 entitled Heroes Paradise. I’ve got my hands on the game and got some play time in already, but how does it stack up so far compared to the original Wii title? Read on and find out.
This 3DS mini-retrospective of the legendary Pac-Man and Galaga franchises contains the original arcade games that started it all, the reboots from the Xbox 360, and two all-new games exclusive to the 3DS.

Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions for the Nintendo 3DS is upon us, and not a moment too soon. It’s no secret that the 3DS has been struggling in terms of sales, and that is no doubt partly due to the shortage of
quality games for the system. Namco Bandai is trying to remedy this situation with Dimensions and it’s six-games-in-one deal. Pac-Man is great, Galaga is great, now how to they fair together?
