Pikmin: New Play Control (Wii)
Feels great popping in a classic with a new feel. Controls take some getting used to, but if all goes well, I may grab Pikmin 2 as well for GameCube. Fun fact about 2: A Wii version was made, but it was only released in Japan, Europe, and Australia.
Anyways, I never really thought about this game as an RTS, despite having so many qualities of one. Also, Pikmin is a great example of the Nintendo charm covering up a rather disturbing concept:
Stranded alone on an uncharted planet with only 30 days of life support between you and a poisonous atmosphere. Your only allies are a bizarre plant/creature hybrid that seem to obey your every command, but why? Your only solace is the light of day, as night brings out terrible creatures, who feast on your comrades if they are left behind. Should you fail in your mission to repair your ship in time, the creatures honor your valor and leadership with a funeral. Burying you in the cold dirt, which for some reason you feel safe in its embrace. Well... Take a look at yourself. You're one of them now...
