Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars: A Giant World

By Louise . January 13, 2009 . 8:20am

Mushroom Men begins with a meteorite plummeting to Earth.  But instead of said meteorite bringing Superman, the meteorite brings something else: self-awareness to the fungal kingdom.  Because of this meteorite, the fungi of Earth can now walk, talk, and think.  Unfortunately, also because of this outer-space rock, the fungus kingdom is in turmoil. A faction […]

Impressions on Insecticide

By Spencer . February 26, 2008 . 1:00pm

Insecticide looks like an adventure game, but it’s  half 3D platformer/shooter. The first thought that popped in my mind while jumping on platforms and shooting the humans in surface dwelling mecha suits was Ratchet & Clank. You don’t need to worry about aiming. As long as you’re in the approximate range you will hit your […]

Blazing Lizard talks about Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball

By Spencer . November 21, 2007 . 1:08pm

Aside from seeing a few screenshots, there isn’t information about Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. That means it’s time to get some facts about fated dodgeball fight! We pulled Chris Stockman, the studio director over at Blazing Lizard aside, to get the skinny on the project.   Why did you choose an internet meme as the […]

Where is my mind? Spending time with “Dementium: The Ward”

By Dan . November 12, 2007 . 8:14pm

I always appreciate when a company takes a much-needed new direction on a platform. So far for the DS we haven't had many survival horror type games, and even less "M" rated games. Renegade Kid decided to check off both columns with the hospital turned nightmare game, Dementium: The Ward.   It's certainly a departure […]

No hard feelings: Renegade Kid and Gamecock still buds

By Spencer . November 2, 2007 . 12:55pm

Sure, Renegade Kid might be working with Mastiff on “Project M”, but that doesn’t mean Gamecock is out of the picture. We have a statement from Renegade Kid explaining what’s going on.   "I'd like to take this opportunity to state some facts, and hopefully squash some misconceptions, about the recent press release announcing our […]

Pirates and Ninjas settle the score in 2008

By Spencer . November 1, 2007 . 11:54am

Early next year Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball arrives on Xbox Live Arcade. The concept for the game is self explanatory, but I’m still impressed Blazing Lizard has been able to turn internet humor into a full blown game. Besides pirates and ninjas the game will have three additional teams. Some pictures show a graveyard arena […]

Mastiff and Dementium developer team up

By Spencer . November 1, 2007 . 9:46am

Gamecock just brought Dementium to stores yesterday. Renegade Kid and Gamecock should be toasting over champagne, perhaps talking about their future title. Nah. Instead Renegade Kid is teaming up with Mastiff who published Gurumin earlier this year for “Project M”. No other details about the title have been announced other than Project M is a […]

By Spencer . August 24, 2007 . 12:28pm

Blazing Lizard’s found a publisher for their internet debate inspired game, Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. Gamecock, the same company publishing Dementium: The Ward, is going to publish Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball in the first quarter of 2008 as a downloadable console game.   The game is exactly what it sounds like pirates and ninjas playing […]

By Spencer . August 14, 2007 . 11:33am

Gamecock sent over an e-mail to announce the Halloween release date for Dementium: The Ward. Besides being one of the few portable survival horror games, Dementium: The Ward will be the third M rated game on the Nintendo DS. Resident Evil: Deadly Silence and Touch the Dead are the other two. I’ll throw Mortal Kombat […]

Hail to the Chimp…. baby

By Dan . July 21, 2007 . 1:13am

I appreciate what Gamecock is trying to do, to give power back to the creators of the games as opposed to the huge companies. I hope they're successful in the long run and become a force to be reckoned with. The first title they seem to be throwing their weight behind the most is Hail […]

Hands on Dementium: The Ward

By Spencer . July 19, 2007 . 6:52pm

Capturing terror on a tiny screen is the challenge Renegade Kid took on when they decided to make Dementium: The Ward. The experience is a mixture of Doom 3 and Silent Hill with controls similar to Metroid Prime: Hunters. You start the game by waking up in a rundown hospital with very little lighting. One […]

Screen Gallery – Hail to the Chimp

By Spencer . June 22, 2007 . 3:57pm

  Gamecock sent over some screenshots of Hail to the Chimp, which looks like Power Stone meets the Jungle Book. The political twist is Hail to the Chimps unique aspect where animals fight to be the next king of the jungle. Ten animals will compete and three of them are introduced in the screenshots: Toshiro, […]
