Fl0w expansion pack in development

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 10:03pm

ThatGameCompany is prepping new content for the Playstation 3 version of Fl0w that introduces a character based on the puffer. The critter gets a campaign too that is around the size as the average Fl0w campaign. For me, the highlight in the Fl0w expansion pack is how it adds in a multiplayer mode where you […]

Wiimote Improvements Continue

By Andrew . October 2, 2007 . 10:00pm

One of the things that I love about Nintendo is that they are always mindful of their products and their customers' safety.  They may not always get it right with the first shot, as we've seen with the Wii Remote straps needing replacements, but they always try to make up for their mistakes.  Today, Nintendo […]

Cook up more meals this November with Cooking Mama 2

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 1:31pm

Majesco announced that Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends is coming out on November 13. That’s a mere two days before the game comes out in Japan. Talk about international appeal! Before the game comes out anywhere in the world, Majesco is going to release a downloadable demo in November wherever the 10,000 Wi-Fi enabled […]

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 1:06pm

The other news from Nintendo’s camp today is all about Super Mario Galaxy. The Japanese site has tons of gameplay movies to check out in case you were curious about the control scheme. There is pointing, shaking and button pressing. Also Mario rides a manta ray in this. This isn't the first time manta rays […]

Snake’s skills in Super Smash Brothers Brawl

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 12:45pm

I’m not usually one to spill the contents of the Smash Brothers Dojo here, but the recent updates are quite notable. First there are brand new videos of Solid Snake fighting. After you get over watching Snake and Mario rumble, scroll down to see Snake’s comments on the other fighters in Brawl. Apparently, Wario gives […]

Atari 2600 turns 30 this year! (1977-?)

By Dan . October 2, 2007 . 12:20pm

Two of my most vivid childhood memories involve the vaunted Atari 2600, which like myself is turning 30 years old this year. Interestingly enough that machine is still in my home, with my Atari right along side newcomers like my PS3 and Dreamcast.   Once I woke up very early on a Saturday morning to […]

A pre-emptive ode to… Chaos Wars?

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 12:14pm

O3 Entertainment hasn’t even officially announced Chaos Wars, although odds are good it’s coming out in English, and it’s getting buzz. I particularly like SelectButton’s thread on the whole issue where the release is summed up as “the single most brass-balls type moment in the history of gaming”. The whole issue is summed up nicely […]

Decasporta delayed until next year

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 11:53am

Hudson’s take on motion controlled sports is getting pushed back from December 20, 2007 until March 2008 in Japan. During the extra three months of time Hudson plans on improving the quality of the game. So far there are 10 games bundled in the package and it’s easy to imagine Hudson adding extra sports to […]

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 11:37am

While we’re on the subject of NIS America, I’m pretty stoked about the new Etna mode where you play after she accidentally kills Prince Laharl. In case you missed the trailer check it out.   [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=UrRipsJR4zM[/youtube]    Here’s a lesser known tidbit on the whole release of Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkeness. Last year Nippon Ichi […]

Soul Nomad: Strategy Session

By Louise . October 2, 2007 . 11:22am

After another couple of hours with Soul Nomad, I'd like to think that I'm pretty good at designing rooms. I haven't lost a battle yet and while I've lost a few troops here and there, most of my rooms have survived in battles.   All the customization available in the beginning of the game may […]

The influx of cheap Wii racing games

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 11:03am

I remember when the remote was introduced to the world and Nintendo showed how it can be titled sideways for a more realistic experience in driving games. More than a fair share of companies took advantage of this feature and later this year a slew of racing-style games, priced under $40 are set to come […]

Dear Readers, Don’t forget about Chibi-Robo

By Spencer . October 2, 2007 . 10:16am

There’s no question that The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is going to get a lot of attention this week. And it should, it’s a great game. I dug the timed dungeons and I admit I have a soft spot for the younger, upbeat, cel-shaded Link. However, before it falls into complete obscurity Chibi Robo: […]

Atlus sent over an e-mail with a link to a new promotional trailer, which is part of their “Trauma Center Tuesdays” campaign. The clip features two player gameplay, but if you have a careful […]

Square-Enix uploaded a new video for Final Fantasy IV and it has samples of voice acting in it. Actually, this clip was the same video that was playing on repeat in front of the Final Fantasy IV line. The difference is you’re seeing it in the comfort of your home without being surrounded by people […]
