Derrick Sanskrit swings by The Digest for the first time to discuss Game & Wario, which he also reviewed last month. Nintendo wants this game to be a proof-of-concept for the Wii U, and it certainly is that, but we’re left with the question of whether the console is going to get past the proof-of-concept stage. Then again, it’s still just a gadget. Derrick and I are more concerned with the wonderful characters that populate the WarioWare universe (of which Game & Wario is a part, even if not explicitly). Forget Mario; let’s see more of 9-Volt and Dr. Crygor!
Our treat today is Pop Rocks, and of course Derrick is enlisted to Tweet That Treat—in which our contestants must compose an on-the-spot review of the day’s candy that comes as close to Twitter’s 140 characters as possible without going over. Will Derrick fare better than Drew Toal did yesterday? There’s only one way to find out.
