The Last Story

Since it was released in 2006, the Wii has had a less than stellar showing of role-playing games throughout its lifecycle. Competing in the modern day RPG market on a console with technical limitations is a tricky proposition for most developers. Attempting to create a game with the same scale and complexity that other consoles offer, without discounting the overall experience is next to impossible. This is why all good RPG games that have been released on the Wii have always come with a console qualifier. Xenoblade Chronicles is a great RPG... for the Wii. Little King's Story is a solid RPG experience... for the Wii. Super Paper Mario is a must play RPG... on the Wii. In short, the Wii isn’t a great console for RPGs, but one game is hoping to change history as the system enters its twilight. The Last Story is the latest release from RPG legend Hironobu Sakaguchi and his Mistwalker studio, and they may have made the next great RPG, not just the next great RPG for the Wii.

First 4 Figures hypes their upcoming Ganondorf from Twilight Princess. Are you suitably excited about spending your heard-earned rupees on this one?

The company, which has in the past made licensed toys based on The Legend of Zelda, Mario, and Worms, is promising that the August 7th release will be available in limited quantities, so if you want to get yours, you'll have to preorder it starting August 7th on the First 4 site.

Their super-limited statues don't come cheap, so expect to drop a couple of bucks on this one (consider their Dark Link, which will set you back $169.99).
