Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. This week’s Retro Wrap-Up celebrates the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service that brought new life to so many games on the Wii and DS. I was able to find a few of the first games to use Nintendo Wi-Fi on each system, a few more favorites sprinkled in, and a certain special game as a send-off. What were your favorite games that used the service?
In the spirit of being worldly (thanks to the powers of the Internet—I wouldn’t have been able to become a Pokémon Master without it), the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you a handful of great TV moments from games that feature Nintendo Wi-Fi here in North America.
Here are the highlights from this past week:
- Bound by Flame, Kero Blaster, The Walking Dead (S2E3) | Tyler Lubben
- Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure, R-Type Dimensions | Guy Rainey
- Mugen Souls Z | Steve Baltimore
- Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi | Angela Hinck
- Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent’s Curse: Episode 2 | Brad Williams
