Is Beyonce interested in creating, you know, music anymore? Last week she signs a deal to sell Vizio TVs, now she has a deal with Nintendo to promote fashion in 2010. I mean you really need content to go on those Vizio TVs and I really want my Mii to be fashionable – even if I haven’t turned on my Wii in about 8 months. The burgeoning partnership between Nintendo and Beyoncé began in 2009 with a memorable ad campaign for Rhythm Heaven™, a music-themed game for Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi. Known for her innovative sense of style, the talented musician and actress is an apt spokeswoman for the imaginative, fashion-forward fun of Style Savvy. Fans will get a unique glimpse into this relationship with the launch of two new Style Savvy TV spots starring Beyoncé, both scheduled to begin airing on Nickelodeon the week prior to this year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and during the event itself.

Instead of giving us the ability to import songs from previous games into whatever current Guitar Hero is available the fine weasels at Activision are giving us a goofy greatest hits collection, called Guitar Hero: Smash Hits. If I didn’t already own all the Guitar Heroes, this would be a cool package. But I do and I never play the older titles because it’s a pain in the but to try and figure out which track is on which disk, then change the disk to play one song. So now we have this. On the positive side all of these tracks will be redone so the charting should be better and we’ll have full band play. Activision is dragging out the announcement of the set list by having an online voting contest and revealing new tracks every Thursday.
Here’s this week’s Wi-kly update from the folks at Nintendo. It’s kind of meh, this week. But we get one brand new WiiWare game and two new Virtual Console games. Check out the release after the break.
Dr. Mario® Online Rx (Nintendo, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): The doctor is in! Mario™ takes a break from his adventuring ways and once again dons his stethoscope for a new generation of germ-battling mayhem. In addition to the classic mode of using vitamins to exterminate viruses, you’ll find two battle modes and an online multiplayer mode where you can hone your skills against players from around the world. Feel like challenging a friend who doesn’t have Dr. Mario Online Rx? Then the WiiWare-exclusive Friend Battle Demo is just what the doctor ordered. Or maybe you’d like some help taking on those nasty viruses? Try out Virus Buster, where four players can simultaneously move capsules simply by pointing at them with a Wii Remote™ controller. Any way you look at it, Dr. Mario Online Rx is a prescription for fun that everyone can enjoy.
Family Table Tennis (Aksys Games, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): It’s time for some good old family fun, and what’s more fun than table tennis? Just like a real family, choose your character from a cast of four, which includes Daddy, Mommy, Sarah and Billy. There are four table tennis-tastic stages where it doesn’t matter if you’re an indoors or outdoors table-tennis player. Pick your poison from a gymnasium, a forest park, a beach or even an amusement park. Choose from Single or Versus mode, or select a minigame to play. In Versus mode, you and a friend can play against each other to see who is the better table-tennis player. And if Single and Versus modes aren’t enough, select between three minigames, which include Target Table Tennis, Thrilling Table Tennis and Matching Table Tennis. The appealing cell-shaded graphics and endearing music, on top of the super-fun game play, will have you and your family playing from morning till night. Get your paddles ready.
