Release date updates: • Wii Fit U is a free download starting November 1. It uses the Wii Fit board currently collecting dust in that closet in your basement. You get a full demo for one month. If you like it, you buy a $20 Fit Meter (a pedometer that apparently does other things) and you get to keep the game forever. There will also be game/Fit Meter and game/Fit Meter/Wii Board retail bundles starting December 13. • Wii Sports Club is the original Wii Sports games, now in HD. They now have online multiplayer and Wii MotionPlus control. Tennis and Bowling are available for download on November 7, with the others coming later. You download the trial version (one sport at a time), get a free 24-hour pass, and then can "rent" each sport for $2 for a day or buy each one outright for $10.
Holy crap! I hadn't seen Quake 3 and naively expected a mild upgrade in graphics from Quake 2. But this game looks like a CGI animated show like Starship Troopers or Beast Wars. But better. It's like playing in a cutscene.
