By Spencer . July 9, 2007 . 12:34pm

The other notable addition in the ESRB’s database is Live Free or Die Hard. Sensory Sweep is listed as the publisher, which is odd since they usually play the role as a developer. They are the team behind Justice League Heroes for the Nintendo DS and the Xbox 360 port, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting. […]

Live Free or Die with a Wii remote

By Spencer . June 27, 2007 . 6:38pm

Fox put up a nifty little flash game to promote Live Free or Die Hard designed with Wii remote control in mind. You are supposed to hold down the A button and swing the remote left or right to do hooks and forward for jabs. The only problem is I can’t get the game to […]

Alvin and the Chipmunks invading consoles?

By Spencer . June 27, 2007 . 2:12pm

It might seem like it’s late for Warner Brothers to release an Alvin and the Chipmunks video game since the three high-pitched, singing rodents fell from stardom. However, EB Games has listings up for a Nintendo DS, Wii, Playstation 2 and PC versions of an Alvin and the Chipmunks game in their database. This game […]

By Spencer . June 6, 2007 . 3:24pm

If you’ve ever been to a Gameworks you might have noticed Sega has the Eastern cousin of the crane machine, the UFO catcher. Each play costs around 20 points if you want to win a Sonic plush or a fancy toy car. Something interesting Sega is starting to do is they have limited edition plush […]

Newbie video game studio Brash Entertainment managed to snag US$400 million in funding from a series of equity investors. Brash Entertainment opened their doors in March and it was presumed they would obtain around $150 million in start up capital.

$10 video games at Gamestop this week

By Spencer . May 28, 2007 . 3:55pm

  Gamestop is having a decent sale this week with a collection of $10 games. There aren’t too many gems on the list and some of the titles are extremely archaic. Why buy SSX Tricky for $10 when you get SSX 3 for just a little more? Their $15 game selection is slightly better where […]

Sin City license handed out

By Spencer . May 23, 2007 . 12:14pm

After I got out of seeing Sin City I wondered why there wasn’t a video game tie in. If an awful movie like Ecks vs. Sever can get two games, Sin City deserves at least one. I guess I’m getting my wish since Red Mile Entertainment picked up the license to make games based on […]

By Spencer . May 11, 2007 . 1:40pm

Going back to Sony Online Entertainment’s press event last week, the game that surprised me the most was an online fighting game based on Kung Fu Hustle. It’s being developed by SOGA, SOE’s Taiwan studio, specifically for Asia. Stephen Chow, the director of the movie, is assisting in the game’s development, which was a little […]
