Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Super Monkey Ball, Shiren the Wanderer, and P.B. Winterbottom!

Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll

SEGA's famous, um, ball-rolling game has come back to the Wii, and this time you can use your Wii Balance Board to control the action! Also added this time is a new character named Jam, tons of cool mini-games, and co-op gameplay. In co-op, friends with Wii remotes can blast obstacles out of the way, while in multiplayer mini-games, you can battle your buddies at Sky Diving, Sumo Smash, or Firefighter games! If you choose to use the Wii Balance Board, the game will actually keep track of the number of "monkey calories" you burn, but I'm not really sure if they're the same as regular human calories or not. Hmm...


Shiren the Wanderer

Shiren the Wanderer is yet another incredible Japanese series of games hitting North America for the first time. Shiren, the hero, goes through randomly generated dungeons with his sidekick ferret Koppa and a few other friends, fighting beasts and whoever stands in his way. And even though the game is totally random and different every time you play, there's a serious RPG storyline backing it up, too. Be warned, though: Like you might expect from a Japanese game coming here for the first time, it's pretty tough to beat.


The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

Coming out for the Xbox Live Arcade next week, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is a puzzle-platformer set in a silent film world. And it's way cooler than that sounds! Winterbottom has a real thing for pie, and he ends up chasing this one super-pie through a portal. To get to this pie, he has to clone himself, sort of like in Braid, that other awesome Xbox puzzle-platformer. If you want a puzzle game that'll bend your mind a little, this will certainly do that.

Hi all I wanted to discuss the greatest space game in history: EVE Online the first ever game to allow players to do what they want, when they want because its space and you have your own mind and actions to take or should I say, choices. I really wanted to let everyone know about this space game and help CCP (creators of EVE) out by playing their epic game. I play EVE and I am 13! A lot of adults that are even older than me play it! EVE Online is one of those space games of its kind to still have over thousands of players play such game! The game is like a sandbox. As in a PvP and PvE based game. You have to choices in the game; PvP a.k.a. PK, or PvE which isgood choice also. The game isn't about going out and dying, and heres what I'd like to tel eveyone here. EVE Online is huge because its not just about going out and getting killed at a gate, in a gate or anywhere. Its about what YOU WANT to do. I am not here to advertise a game, but I am here to make sure to say, "Hey, there are plenty of good games out there, you just gotta look for them.". Anyway there is a new update on the game called Oceanus! Its awesome and it has better cloaking features that allow you to move but still hide from PvP based players. The game is constantly and one of many games that updats since the start of its release. Oh and another thing DUST514 is actually in the EVE Universe so they both associated so anyone here who plays will now know EVE is the Universe DUST is in, amazing isn't it. If you played EVE you know what it looks like when you play DUST514. I just wanted to everyone to know about this game and that CCP really needs players to support them. (If offensive please massage me why or why it has to be closed)

Sims 4 is hella fun. If you've played 3 before, it will seem like a let down (They took a bunch out). The graphics are good, The Sims are funny. I say get it.

I like Anatoly Karpov.   Karpov is ok. #1 is Capablanca, #2 is Botvinnik, #3 is Tal  Ah well, you obviously know a bit more than I do. :)
