Joystiq: The Wii Internet Channel is now free, and made more useful by the inclusion of a stripped-down version of Flash. Not only that, but anyone who paid for the browser is being given a credit good for one NES game.

GameSpot: An Okami sequel headed to the DS? Genius.
Kotaku: An insightful piece by Leigh Alexander on the industry’s lack of creativity. My favorite part is where she gets a guy who worked on the new Wolfenstein to say that “we continuously make the same games about the same things.”
GameSpot: In case you hadn’t heard, Disney acquired Marvel for $4 billion. You can now begin imagining your favorite superheroes fighting Daffy Duck in the next Kingdom Hearts game.
