We see favorite E3 lists from video game media all of the time. Did the late night TV network and largest source of Family Guy reruns in North America pick anything different?

Amateur Surgeon: Adult Swim’s take on Trauma Center

By Spencer . February 17, 2008 . 7:14pm

Imitation is inevitable, but the first Trauma Center clone is coming from an unlikely place. I thought I would see Veterinary Center: Save the Nintendogs before Adult Swim atomized Trauma Center into a flash game. Since this is for PCs motion control is thrown out the window, but the operations in Amateur Suregon are very […]

Shin-Chan cashes out with a GBA to DS port

By Spencer . November 14, 2007 . 8:21am

Three years ago Banpresto released a Shin-Chan game ripe with movie parodies. Crayon Shin-Chan: Arashi wo Yobu Cinema Land no Daibouken is a basic platformer where you take Shin through an action bastard themed first stage and jump on enemies. Banpresto is digging this up and shoveling it into Crayon Shin-Chan: Arashi wo Yobu Cinema […]

By Spencer . September 10, 2007 . 3:13am

Did you catch Robot Chicken last night/this morning? In between sketches about Barbie dolls and He-Man, Robot Chicken poked fun at two series of video games. Poor Link is trying to get a “reward” from Zelda, but will she give in after eight previous records? If you missed it the episode is online. Watch it […]

Is Harvey Birdman different for the Wii? Nah.

By Spencer . September 5, 2007 . 9:06pm

Following our Harvey Birdman interview I asked Capcom if there is any difference between the Wii version and the PS2/PSP release outside the obligatory point and click control. The response I got was that there is “no difference between the versions.” Remember the PS2/PSP versions ring up at $30 while the Wii version costs $40. […]

Is Harvey Birdman coming to the Wii too?

By Spencer . August 20, 2007 . 7:40pm

The other notable listing on Gamefly is a Wii port of Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law set to come out the same time as the PS2 and PSP versions. If this news is true I wouldn’t expect this to be a full “Wii-make” since Harvey Birdman is at its core an adventure game, similar to […]

Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s video game box art

By Spencer . July 27, 2007 . 11:21am

I don’t know whether the Aqua Teen Hunger Force game is actually going to be a quality title or a quick cash-in for Midway. The box art is cool though and it seems to have an original concept… mini golf mashed with kart racing and there is some 3D action with Master Shake swinging a […]

Hands on Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law

By Spencer . July 27, 2007 . 1:58am

The best thing about the Harvey Birdman game is it feels like you’re playing an episode straight from the show. Instead of having the case told through text boxes like Capcom’s other legal drama game, Harvey Birdman tells the story through videos, voiced by the TV cast. In the demo case Peter Potamus is accused […]

By Spencer . April 16, 2007 . 4:06pm

I know Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trial and Tribulations is coming out in September, but the law game that has my eye this year is Capcom’s Harvey Birdman title. Capcom announced the title at their 2007 Gamers day and a few more details about the game are trickling in. It’s being pegged as an “interactive […]

Over the Xbox Live Marketplace Microsoft is going to offer full TV shows and movies to download. There are some powerful partners backing the service including CBS, Turner Networks and NASCAR.
