Texas Hold ‘em Tournament is the first poker game that has been developed as a WiiWare title. Brought to you by Digital Leisure Inc., this No-Limits Texas Hold ‘em game should satisfy all the poker-heads and maths boffins alike. Considerably cheaper than other poker games for the Wii, how does this little fella hold up?
In the last decade, we’ve seen the popularity of Texas Hold ‘em poker explode with televised cash games increasing and professional poker players almost classed as celebrities in their own right. With fairly simple rules, the game’s attraction is its balance of skill and luck.
Most card games rely on an element of luck. Some more than others. With No Limit Texas Hold ‘em (no limit on what you bet), psychology can often play an unrecognised part of the game.
This game supports your Mii avatars which is very cool. For those who don’t know how to play, I’ll go through the rules as concise as I can. Incidentally, the game does include a rules section so new-comers need not worry.
There’s only one game added to the Wii Shop Channel this week, but it’s a big one! Zelda fans will be happy to know the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is available on the Virtual Console now.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – N64
A mysterious evil force is pulling the moon out of orbit and you have just 72 hours to prevent the land of Termina from being destroyed. Using the Song of Time, Link can re-live the 72 hours in an effort to solve the mystery of Majora’s Mask. This one player action adventure game is available now for 1000 points.
Last week’s Wii Shop Channel releases got missed out so here it is. Dated 27/03/09.
