Retro Game Challenge

This is actually loosely based on a Japanese gameshow called Retro Game Master where a guy tries to see how far he can get in a classic game in one day. The concept of the game being that an evil version of this guy, Arino, gets fed up with sucking at games so he pulls you back in time to his childhood to have you play through the games for him. The game is on the DS and is wonderfully “meta”, as you can often chat with the young version of Arino about games, flip through magazines for tips and tricks, etc. The game has 8 different games within it that you have to play through, a few of them being sequels and variations. Still, it looks very interesting. and definitely unique.
