    Wiikly Update for 11/26/07 (US)

    DOUBLE DRIBBLE™ (NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): DOUBLE DRIBBLE, the first 5-on-5, full-court home basketball game, is pure hoops action at its finest. While still a surprisingly accurate basketball game for its time, the frantic action keeps you on your toes as your players run from one end of the court to the other. Choose from a handful of teams and multiple levels of difficulty as you take on the computer alone or challenge a friend and see who has the better skills. Take the ball and sink shots from locations all over the court, or get in your opponent's face and do your best to block the shot. Better yet, drive the lane and rock the rim to see one of the game's trademark slam-dunk cut scenes. He shoots, he scores!

    Vegas Stakes™ (Super NES®, 1-4 players, rated E for Everyone – Simulated Gambling, 800 Wii Points): Feel like taking a road trip to Las Vegas? Let your inner high roller go wild as you try your luck at five different games-blackjack, slots, poker, craps and roulette. Start with only $1,000 in your pocket and play your way through five casinos, each with a different theme and varying limits. But no one wants to gamble alone, right? Not a problem, as you'll be able to choose one of four friends to tag along and offer advice when you need it. Further enhancing the experience is the fact that you'll be presented with a slew of interactions with random casino patrons. Best be careful, though-your choices in these situations could either get you closer to the millions of dollars you're after or cost you a pile of that hard-earned cash. Roll the dice, spin the wheel, hit or stand-do whatever it takes to stake your claim in Vegas and beat the house!

    Ecco Jr.™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The aquatic adventures of Ecco come to life for a younger generation of gamers. Perfect for kids, Ecco Jr. finds our young hero heading out to sea with a variety of tasks he must perform in order to get there. Along with his friends Tara the baby orca and Kitnee the young Atlantic dolphin, Ecco Jr. will interact with sea lions, sea horses and other aquatic life as he makes his journey to the Big Blue. Introduce your kids to the classic series of Ecco the Dolphin titles by downloading Ecco Jr. today.

    I'm tempted to buy Double Dribble just to recall my childhood memories of me throwing the controller across the room because the ball bounced off the rim every time you went for a slam dunk.

    Or took a regular shot.

    Or three pointer.

    ...

    ......

    ..........

    Or free throw.

    At least the intro is cool.
    "Kids, let me tell you about another so-called "wicked" guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was... I forget. But the point is... well, I forget that too. Marge, you know who I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

    Ouch, that's a right punch in the gut from Nintendo. Candidate for worst American update ever.



    I never add friend codes.

    I liked Double Dribble back in the day. The slam dunk shots were great. You had to time how long you held down the A button to get shots to go in, that and the bouncing ring for free throws. It wasn't impossible and it was replaced by much better games later on, but it was fun all the same at the time.

    Double Dribble is awesome, and I have a friend who will somehow take the ball from you everytime and defeat you almost 100-0......konami sports are the shit.

    however, a card game for SNES is such a waste.....lets just not have ANY card games, seeing how there are thousands of PC poker and solitaire options.

    Wow... this is tempting. Double Dribble was a lot of fun growing up. My sister and I found the spots on the court that if you shot if from there, you'd always hit the three pointer. I miss glitches like that...
