License Week at Wiiloveit

Remember back in the day when licenses were given proper attention in video game form? Even now, titles like Ducktales and Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers are often referenced as great examples of the kind of effort we have seen in the past and really should be seeing now. Other titles like Cool Spot (shown here) have created their own groups of followers who either clamor for a second helping or reminisce on how enjoyable the games were. Sadly, I think most will agree that the overall quality of licensed games has dropped significantly as we've moved further and further away from systems of past generations, to the point where quality licensed games are becoming more and more of a rarity.

All this week, we'll be doing something out of the ordinary here at Wiiloveit. Patrick and I have prepared a week-long schedule consisting of game reviews of various licensed material that will culminate in a special two-person feature. As a community, we all harp on this sector of gaming at length -- justifiably in the eyes of some -- but it's unfair to write off all licensed games completely. As you may very well find out, there are some (yes, even recent ones) that are actually worth your time. As you check out our content this week, give thought to the experiences you've had over the years and reflect on what changes you feel are needed with licensed games moving forward.
