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...

Disney Guilty Party Trailer

Disney Guilty Party Trailer
As announced yesterday at Nintendo’s Media Summit, Disney Interactive Studios & Wideload Games are teaming up to bring a family-friendly detective party game to the Wii.

Hit me up in the comments & let em know what you think. Personally, I’m liking what I’m seeing… Bookmark It Hide Sites

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

Rock Band Restock 02/23-02/25
Next week, MTV Games & the Harmonix crew will be bringing a couple of tracks from the Finnish band H.I.M. For the uninitiated, His Infernal Majesty (H.I.M.) has had most of their success overseas. But, they did have their breakout hit here in the ‘States called Wings of a Butterfly back in 2005. Look for that track pack along with singles from Marilyn Manson & The Police… 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...

Rock Band Restock 02/09-02/11
Megadeth returns to Rock Band this week with Rust in Peace, one of the best metal albums of the 1980’s. Released in 1986, it was big for me personally as at 11 years old, I was just starting to transition away from the Top 40/Adult Contemporary music my Mom listened to (trust me, one can only listen to so much Anne Murrey). Rock & metal were a perfect fit for me, with bands like Quiet Riot, Iron Maiden, Ratt, Van Halen & Aerosmith already on my playlist thanks to buddies, groups like Megadeth, Metallica & Guns & Roses finished off my 80’s Pop habits for good. While I...

Apparently gamers who haven’t been able to upgrade to an HD display are have been having trouble reading the many lines of text in the recently launched Mass Effect 2. There’s even a thread about it in the official forums. Bioware’s response? Well, according to Mass Effect Project Manager Michael Gamble, “it was a byproduct of enhancements to the user interface” & they can’t address it with a patch, but will keep it in mind for their future Mass Effect titles. I wonder what they’ve done differently since this isn’t the first time this issue has...

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4
When we first got wind of Project Needlemouse, there was a mix of joy & trepidation. Joy at the return of the iconic speedster & trepidation because of the long time struggle Sega has had getting the spiny mammal to be successful since it’s 16 bit days. Today, Sega finally showed it’s hand, & I must say, I think they’ve been dealt full house. One of the biggest complaints have been that they seem to miss re-creating the magic that Sonic had back on the Genesis. So, Sega seems to have finally taken that to heart & is creating Sonic 4. No were-hogs, no RPG elements...
