    No picture...
    The sun blazes down relentlessly here in the Nevada desert. Route 66 is nearby but not that many cars pass this way. You could say it’s rather deserted…but all that is set to change because Big Bubba, the state’s leading entrepreneur is about to transform this less than lively location into a thriving tourist attraction! But y'know, you can't be too careful. Big Bubba has had one hell of an idea for drawing those tourists and their greenbacks into his new business venture...

    This is the setting for King of Clubs - an engaging trick-based action puzzle game. The game boasts a distinctive vintage Americana graphics and soundtrack, along with its appealingly humorous multiplayer mode. The game has 96 levels, including 10 multi-level challenges, plus bonus areas, and offers hours of game play and a host of gadgets.

    Obscure and Opoona seem like the only worthy ones there, which will probably end up being rented by me. My next Wii game will be Mario Kart unless something comes in between now and April.

    Awesome. Crap and really Japanese looking crap. Given the choice, I'd take the crap.

    The Emergency Mayhem is kind of a neat idea. Anyone ever play SimCopter (put out fires, chased criminals, saved people, etc. from a helicopter in a 3D city)? That game was great.

    Yeah my next game will probably be Mario Kart. I hope Opoona sells well though so they make more RPGs. Although that might give them the idea to make Opoona 2 which wouldn't be the goal.

    I wish! That would've been cool. I would've screamed if there was one being relesed tommorow.

    I know, but they announce Zelda games like a year in advance to market the product, and raise speculation. Anyway...back on topic.

    I saw Emergency Mayhem a few weeks ago on Amazon. I think they are the ones with a video, and some stills.

    I'm really looking forward to that game. It's like Crazy Taxi meets Wario Ware Smooth Moves. Two of my favorites. I was hoping it would be a cheaper title though.
