In this monthly section the readers were given a lengthy preview of WiiWare video game Lit, developed by Way Forward, the team behind Contra 4 and Shante. It was written by Chris Hoffman. Other information in this section included news on Sandy Beach and downloadable content for Mega Man 9. As always, reviews were present for games released on both the WiiWare service and on the Virtual Console. Unlike the reviews of retail games, reviews of downloadable titles are graded by bad (Grumble Grumble), so-so (Hmmm...), and good (Recommended).

Animal Crossing: City Folk

In this article, written by Alan Averill (former NoA treehouse employee), Alan delivered commentary for four of the game's days, explaining each one with great detail, while also giving information on the game's new characters and events. The article concluded with an interview with Ann Lin and Reiko Ninomiya, two of the game's localization members who translated the game from Japanese into English. In the interview they explained that different countries get different holidays, even South Korea. They also explained the very demanding process of translating it.
