What's the deal? Our friend Mario is finding himself being used by hackers according to a report released by Sophos yesterday.
A note to our readers: do not pay any attention to e-mails containing the text "Hi There. Do You Like Mario Bross ? Test it, and you'll like it ;] !". You'll be offered to play a classic game featuring the setting and Mario via an attatchment. Once the victim clicks it then the Romario-A worm is released then spreading by mass e-mailing itself. Your computer will also be at risk of it spreads. Please read Sophos's report on the virus also.

Yoshi® is now available for 500 Wii Points on the Shopping Channel. If people need a reminder of what the game is about then here's Nintendo of America telling us in their press release they issued this morning:
Yoshi® (NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Yoshi is an action/puzzle game starring Mario's dinosaur buddy, Yoshi™, who has been imprisoned in an egg. Now it's raining Goombas, Bloopers and Boo Buddies, and you have to help Mario™ stop the airborne invasion. As the critters fall, catch them on trays. Stack two of a kind and they both disappear, or capture the whole bunch in between eggshells. When the eggshells match, out hatches Yoshi and up goes your score. The action heats up as the characters fall faster and faster. To save the day, switch and shuffle, and don't let your piles get too high.

Yep, they're back. In today's update to the Smash Bros. DOJO site it is revealed that those little creatures who liked to throw hammers back in the classic days, the Hammer Bro., has returned and is ready to cause some more hassles...
In a twist the Hammer Bro is not against you but is against the person fighting you. What you need to do is when you get a capsule, hold it high in the air, and wait to see a character appear. Once the character comes out it will help aid you in your battle. Something else: there are other characters besides Hammer Bro who are featured.
