Excerpt: The Nintendo Wii has become more and more a platform for different and original ideas, geared mainly towards gameplay (and leaving graphics concerns behind). Following Nintendo’s innovative philosophy, Konami delivers Elebits , a brand new IP exclusive on the Nintendo console, which stands as one of the best games to be picked up for the Wii in the current line-up.
Excerpt: Elebits has finally arrived, albeit under the scope of a different name, that of Eledees. One of the more quirky titles from Konami, Eledees sees you set to explore areas in the midst of a blackout in search for tiny electric critters that are strangely enough, called Eledees. With much of whats special about the game related to Wiimote control is Eledees a gimmick or a romp that lasts the test of time?
Excerpt: Konami has won over a ton of mature gamers with Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid, but for their initial titles on the Wii, they've targeted a younger crowd with such games as Elebits. In this game we find ourselves in a world where there is no gasoline, no natural gas, and no nuclear power. Rather than polluting our world with these fuel sources, people rely on cute little animals made of electrical energy to run their cities and towns.
