What a great week for Nintendo downloadable releases!Not only do we get to finally get our hands on PressPlay’s Max & the Magic Marker, a game I’ve been following for some time & just can’t wait to get some more playtime with it (I should have a review for you guys soonish), but we also get Final Fantasy II for the Virtual Console! Seriously, this is one of those releases that make me giddy like a school boy as the combination of Final Fantasy I & II plus the first three Dragon Warrior games (i.e. Dragon Quest) were the catalyst that caused me to move beyond simple...

Let the old school gaming begin! Leading the pack of downloadable titles from Nintendo is Mega Man 10, a game that takes the long-popular mechanical hero back to his 8-bit roots. Including the classic 2D  NES gameplay & brutal difficulty, the developers have worked hard to create a new experience built around the old school play mechanics. Does the difficulty turn you off? New in this chapter is an Easy Mode, so everyone can enjoy the story without the classic frustration. Speaking of classics, the early 1990’s NEO GEO fighter Fatal Fury Special arrives on the Virtual Console. This was...

Nintendo’s Media Summit Wrap-Up

Nintendo’s Media Summit Wrap-Up
Nintendo held their Q1 2010 Media Summit this morning. It was chalk full of goodies that typically could fill an entire year for them. The kicker? Everything shown was only for the 1st half of 2010 (except for GhostWire). That’s right, everything you see will be released before the end of June. Anything beyond that point will be covered during Nintendo’s E3 press event. The Summit was held at the W Hotel in San Francisco & began promptly at 9am PST. They opened things up with the normal number graphs & charts, but cited they didn’t want to focus on that & quickly moved...

What? No Virtual Console releases? *sigh* Well, at least we will get some interesting WiiWare titles this week. GhostSlayer sounds like it could be fun, especially if you have a Wii Motion Plus (check out the trailer below). Mouse House catches my eye just from the “pick up & play” element they’re pushing. With how hectic today’s schedules can get, it’s nice to have games that don’t require a huge time investment… Bookmark It Hide Sites

So there it is. Phoenix Wright is finally taking WiiWare to trial. Believe it or not, I’ve never played a single Phoenix Wright game. Stop. Don’t say it. I’ve already been told I’m missing out. I just have a tough time investing in handheld titles since I honestly don’t have enough time to play them. Maybe the WiiWare version will change that. Also debuting this week is Sonic & Knuckles on the Virtual Console. While it wasn’t a bad game, by the time it came out back in 1994, my love of platformers was fading as it was & Sonic & Knuckles didn’t...

Hmmmm….I don’t know about this. Although I certainly loved the first game on the NES, I can’t say I have a ton of faith that Blaster Master can make a come back, especially following the abysmal PSOne version. That’s not to say I won’t give this WiiWare release a shot. I’m just not convinced that it can recapture the fun of the first one. Also on tep this week is the tower defense title Fieldrunners for the DSi. I love tower defense games so I’ll try any of them. Some even manage to surprise me (like the South Park one on XBLA). As you all know, I’m...

EA Shows Us The Future

EA Shows Us The Future
EA released their 3rd Q Financial Report this afternoon. Typically these are full of a bunch of numbers that most of you won’t really care about. But, once you dig past that, sometimes you’ll find some interesting (& unannounced) information. First up, both APB & the new Medal of Honor title will launch this summer (read July, Aug, or Sept), with the MMO being PC only, but MoH reboot will be on the consoles, PC & the handhelds. The holidays will see Crysis 2 (for both consoles & PC), a new EA Sports Active title, the new Need For Speed game, NBA Jam, EA Sports MMA, a...

Lego Star Wars Gets ‘Cloned’

Lego Star Wars Gets ‘Cloned’
The popular (& obscenely cute) Lego game franchise will be adding a 3rd title in it’s Star Wars series. Dubbed The Clone Wars, this new game will draw from the Cartoon Network series of the same name, boasting a better level editor, squad command & long distance Jedi attacks. You should see all the characters from the animated series making an appearance in the game along with “some fan-favourite characters from the beloved theatrical Star Wars Saga”. While I enjoy the franchise, it’s certainly a better experience for the younger crowd. I wonder why TT Games opted...

Sega Shows Us Their War Machine

Sega Shows Us Their War Machine
Iron Man 2 is set to hit theaters in couple of months & along with that will be the game adaption. We haven’t seen much of it so far, but today Sega released a new trailer introducing us to War Machine. Rhody, Tony Stark’s best friend (whom we saw in the first film) is the man behind the machine who provides some much needed assistance to our tin hero. But, after checking out the trailer below, I can’t help but feel a little concern. Is it just me or does it look like it’s plagued with a “more of the same” sickness? The first game was okay, but forgettable....

Lego Harry Potter Year 2 Screens & Vignette

Lego Harry Potter Year 2 Screens & Vignette
I’m kiind of schizophrenic when it comes to the Lego games. While I’m really into the general idea & so far, I have enjoyed what little bit I’ve played of them, there’s still just something about them that pushes me away. It seems like every time I sit down to play one, my session may last an hour at best. Then, I just get distracted & won’t pick it up again for weeks (sometimes months). I still can’t figure out what it is that I makes me lose interest. As a fan of the Harry Potter books (especially before the entire planet went bat-shit crazy over them),...

This week, it’s all about the WiiWare! While Alex Kidd was alright at the time it came out, for me, it didn’t age well. So I’m not terribly interested in that sole Virtual Console release. But, WiiWare on the other hand, not only has the final chapter in the Tales of Monkey Island series (Chapter 5 wraps up the latest adventure of Guybrush Threepwood), but it also has the sequel to my favorite Zuma clone of all time. I spent a ton of hours playing Tumblebugs on both MAC & PC (my ex-wife actually turned me on to it through her MAC laptop). Although it’s certainly a lot...

Isn’t there already an Uno game on the Wii? I mean, Uno is pretty much everywhere these days. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Uno gameshow on Fox or NBC next fall. For the three of you who are upset that you don’t have Uno on your Wii, today is your lucky day as the seminal card game is making it’s way onto WiiWare. In addition to that, bittos+ is launching today. It’s a puzzle game that I’ve been watching for a few months now & so far, I just can’t get my head into it. Maybe I’ll feel a bit different once I actually play it. Rounding out the...
