Tone Deaf: Rhythm ‘n Notes for the DS

By Dan . November 26, 2007 . 5:38am

The front of the box of Rhythm 'N Notes claims to "Improve Your Music Skills." Which on the surface sounds like a good idea, but when you start the game the two choices you're given for game types are so far away from each other on the skill level that one seems made for 2 […]

Agetec picks up a PSP puzzle game from Irem

By Spencer . November 15, 2007 . 10:32am

Chris Dahlberg over from Cosmos Gaming sent a tip (thanks!!) in about an unannounced PSP title from Agetec. Puzzle Guzzle is its name, but it really is just a localized version of Mawaskes, which Irem released in Japan this past July. I guess this isn’t entirely out of the blue because with the help of […]

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns slips into stores

By Spencer . November 14, 2007 . 8:49am

In a week where Super Mario Galaxy, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, Contra 4 and a gazillion other games come out something is bound to fall through the cracks. This week it’s Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, which Agetec bravely decided to localize and sell for only $14.99. Crazy, huh? Almost as crazy as throwing a […]

Fire Pro Wrestling retails for only fifteen bucks

By Spencer . October 16, 2007 . 1:29pm

I just got an e-mail in from Agetec with a release date for Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, its November 13th release date is less than a month away. Also the price is a shocker at a mere $15 (read: cheaper than a Greatest Hits title).   The US release is way less than the price […]

Burning desire, Agetec talks about Fire Pro Wrestling

By Spencer . August 15, 2007 . 3:22pm

Seemingly out of nowhere, Agetec announced Fire Pro Wrestling for the Playstation 2, which is part of a series developed by Spike in Japan. Actually, Fire Pro goes further back with its origins on PC-Engine care of the now closed Human Entertainment. Fire Pro and its fictional cast of wrestlers have been around for a […]

More puzzles, less training in Brain Buster: Puzzle Pak

By Louise . August 12, 2007 . 3:04pm

The portable nature of the Nintendo DS and the feature of a stylus and touchscreen make it a convenient system for pen and paper games. Brain Buster Puzzle Pak makes use of this by giving us a collection of number puzzles.  Everyone knows about Sudoku, but Brain Buster also includes lesser known puzzles such as […]

It's the day of the Moon Festival for the rabbit clan but the moon is nowhere to be found.  A mysterious stranger appears and tells two rabbits, Cookie and Cream, that there are clues to finding the moon hidden on an island, which he conveniently takes them to. That is how our story begins.   […]

Hi, Raw Danger

By Spencer . June 17, 2007 . 1:51pm

Agetec quietly released the sequel to Disaster Report (aka Zettaizetsumei Toshi 2) in stores last week under a much more western friendly name, Raw Danger. The premise of Raw Danger is similar to Disaster Report, except you are trying to survive the aftermath of a Tsunami instead of an Earthquake. Yeah, Raw Danger looks like […]

Agetec aims to educate with a music/rhythm game

By Spencer . June 1, 2007 . 2:56pm

  You’re probably not going to learn how to dance from playing Dance Dance Revolution and you’re definitely not going to become a DJ from playing Beatmania. You might be great on the beat box with lightning fast hands from playing with all seven keys, but Beatmania is much as DJ simulator as Ouendan is. […]

Disaster Report 2 coming to the USA… under a new name

By Spencer . February 26, 2007 . 8:49am

Agetec took a risk and released Zettai Zetsumei Toshi under the name Disaster Report in North America. It was an innovative game where you tried to survive in the middle of an earthquake. While it wasn’t critically well received, Disaster Report has a following even if the graphics are dismal. Irem released Zettai Zetsumei Toshi […]

Adventures of Cookie and Cream coming to a DS near you

By Spencer . January 12, 2007 . 7:16am

Agetec took a gamble and released From Software’s Kuri Kuri Mix on the Playstation 2 under the name the Adventures of Cookie and Cream. It was a two player co-op puzzle game where you shared the same controller to progress through levels. As a party game it was creative, but never really caught on. From […]
