game: Super Smash Bros. Brawl
news | 10/10/07 | Chris Martin
Several poorly doctored videos
have been circulating the interweb regarding the blue blur's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. But today, according to Gemaga's Live Blog
, and then re-reported by 1UP, Nintendo
has rolled a new trailer for Super Smash Bros. Brawl with Sonic the Hedgehog "jumping, spinning, and even turning into Super Sonic." I think Nintendo
just sold another ten million Wii...
game: Ghost Squad
gallery | 09/08/07 | Chris Martin
Once the reveared developers of Shenmue, Virtua Fighter, Afterburner, Space Harrier (the list goes on) are hard at work bringing their "light gun shooter" Ghost Squad to the Nintendo Wii. Which means it's a "Wii gun shooter" or a "light Wii shooter" or a "Wiimote shooter." Whatever you call it, it's very much in Wii vein with 4-player co-op. Sure, the game has been out in arcades since 2004, but better late than never, I always say.
game: Lunar Knights
review | 05/10/07 | Amanda Bateman
In Lunar Knights, you take control of two different heroes, Lucian and Aaron, one powered by the sun, one powered by the moon, in an attempt to free the world from the vampiric legion. If you are familiar with the Vampire Hunter (Baktai GBA) series, you're already familiar with Lunar Knights. It is, however, Kojima Productions' first foray on the Nintendo DS, and it's one worth a look.
game: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
review | 04/06/07 | Amanda Bateman
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In Portrait of Ruin, a picture is full of a thousand demons. A thousand demons about to be cut down by whips and giant crosses, that is. In the second Castlevania title for the Nintendo DS, take control of two characters and get ready to tangle with Dracula. While very much in line with the rest of the series, there are a few surprises herein for fans of the series. Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin might be right up your alley if you're in the mood for a good adventure game, a few puzzles, and lots of bosses.
game: Xbox 360 Elite
editorial | 04/04/07 | Chris Martin
Microsoft seems to be trying to play catch-up with the wrong gaming company. Instead of chasing the Nintendo Wii as it storms through the gaming industry, Microsoft is introducing features that bring it closer in line with the PS3. The PS3 has Blu-ray; Xbox 360 gets a HD DVD drive. PS3 has HDMI, and now so does the Xbox 360 Elite. Both systems now have price tags approaching half a grand. Standing in the middle between Nintendo and Sony's price tags, Microsoft would be better served introducing a cheaper SKU to compete as a high-end competitor to the Wii, not a low end competitor to the PS3. Yet both Sony and Microsoft seem to be pursuing features that are driven less by consumer demand and more by their own competition for the beefiest console. There's a reason that we don't need the Xbox 360 Elite; it's called the PS3, and not many people are buying that as it is. Why use that as the model for your feature list?
editorial | 03/20/07 | Chris Martin
Microsoft Game Studios' head Shane Kim sat down with GameDaily and they talked about everything from the Xbox 360's performance in 2006 to the negative feedback the PlayStation 3 has been garnering from a majority of the online press. He's fairly candid about his feelings in regard to Nintendo and Sony. And although he does a fair share of boosting Microsoft's image, he does have some constructive criticism about Microsoft as well. More inside.
game: Super Swing Golf
review | 01/31/07 | George Holomshek
The golf featured in Wii Sports introduced a lot of casual gamers to a virtual sport many of them would never have touched on their own. Yet Wii Sports Golf is hardly a complete game, and has only one full course. Tecmo has stepped forward to offer Super Swing Golf, a more complete golf title that combines an odd mix of more challenging golf elements and overly-stylized presentation. Without online play, Super Swing may be missing a key element, but with a dozen courses and more golf features it serves as competent follow-up to what Nintendo started back when the Wii launched.
news | 01/10/07 | Aaron Stanton
Inaccurate stories are often hard to kill after they've seen some publicity. When Sony sent out a press release on January 8th claiming that the Sixaxis controller had won an Emmy for technical innovation, many people were understandably upset. Why had the Sixaxis won and not the Nintendo Wii? Then, 1UP.com reported that the Wiimote had also won an Emmy. In truth, neither won. Both Sony and Nintendo did win awards, but both won for past contributions, not for the Wii or the PS3. Nintendo won for the D-Pad. Sony won for the Dual Shock.
game: If Only They Could All Be Brain Age
review | 01/09/07 | Laurie Taylor
The success of Brain Age has helped to launch an entire genre into the public mindset. While video games will probably always revolve around high action and high intensity, games designed to make you smarter have established a slower, more serious side of gaming. Yet even games that are designed to make you smarter have to be fun, and Majesco's Brain Boost series for the Nintendo DS simply doesn't make the cut. We take a look at Brain Boost: Beta Wave and Brain Boost: Gamma Wave to see if there's a winning combination of entertaining puzzles and something to improve the mind; we're not entirely convinced we found either.
game: Tony hawk's Downhill Jam
review | 12/23/06 | Matt James
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is sort of like a THPS lite, but that doesn't make it a game you should avoid. Building on the old-school THPS timed gameplay style, Downhill Jam offers up some quality gameplay on the Nintendo DS. If you're looking for something a little less intense than THUG or Project 8 for your daily commute or li'l skater-in-training, the you could do worse than grabbing Downhill Jam. Check out Matt's review for the details.
game: Gears of War
review | 12/19/06 | Chris Martin
The Xbox 360 needed a killer app to help counteract the release of both the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii, a game that would make their year-old system more appealing to potential Christmas shoppers. Well, Epic delivered with Gears of War, one of the best games to ever grace a game system. Even after the shiny new gleam has worn off, Gears of War continues to amaze, and promises to be a lasting online and offline hit for some time to come. Between Gears of War and Halo, Microsoft is holding some intellectual properties that will sell consoles, and you better bet that they know it.
game: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
review | 12/09/06 | George Holomshek
The Wii has burst onto the scene this Fall every bit as popular as some imagined. Its success is due, in part, to a single title that many Nintendo fans have been eager to play: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has been re-tooled from its Gamecube origins for the Wii's unique controller and brawnier hardware. The result is a launch title of virtually unparalleled quality. Is Twilight Princess all that we hoped it would be? Our man George is mighty impressed. Check out his review for the details.
game: Sam and Max
news | 09/18/06 | Aaron Stanton
The advent of services like Xbox Live and the Wii Virtual Console have changed the dynamics of the industry. Suddenly there's a marketplace for less mainstream genres that have a hard time competing against the likes of Halo and Zelda. One such genre: Adventure Games. According to 1up.com, Nintendo has heard fans asking for adventure game content and contacted TellTale games about the possibility of bringing Sam and Max to the Wii. A sure thing? Far from it, but it's nice to know that you can make a difference if you shout loud enough. Good job, guys and gals.
game: Trauma Center: Second Opinion
news | 09/16/06 | George Holomshek
Atlus sends word that their cult-fave-to-be, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, will launch alongside Nintendo's new baby, the Wii. One of the most highly sought-after games for the Nintendo DS, Trauma Center has gained a legion of fans who are looking forward to the home console version. Get the details on this "Wii-make" that should easily become one of the most talked-about titles to make the Wii launch.
