Red Bull rhythm and isometric breakdancing

By Spencer . April 7, 2008 . 9:41am

When I think of breakdancing I think of footwork not geometric shapes. However, until Konami makes Breakdance Revolution every game about B-Boys and B-Girls boils down to timed button presses. Playlogic’s game SPONSORED BY RED BULL goes for a different approach. With the help of the touch screen players trace lines vaguely in the shape […]

Elite Beat Agents bound for Korea, a slim chance for K-Pop?

By Spencer . August 6, 2007 . 12:35pm

Watching what Nintendo is doing in Korea has always been rather interesting to me. Unlike other companies that shovel games to the market ripe with Japanese text, Nintendo is carefully localizing each game. Releasing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team in Hangul is of their major localization projects and it arrives in South Korea at […]

Watch: Ouendan 2’s more serious side

By Spencer . May 24, 2007 . 6:23pm

Most of the stories in Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 are lighthearted where you help a kid from wetting his bed and shoot a giant water monster with a hair dryer. One of the stories where you play as the Blue Ouendan bucks the trend and teeters on the sappy side. The story is about two […]

Watch: Selling shoes to aliens in Ouendan 2

By Spencer . May 18, 2007 . 8:10pm

One of my favorite scenarios stars a shoe salesman who heads to outer space to sell shoes. Luckily for him he runs into jellyfish-like aliens and a millipede alien who calls into his home shopping network.

Watch: Ouendan 2’s catchy song “Julia ni Shoshin”

By Spencer . May 18, 2007 . 5:59pm

Of course this is my opinion only, but one of the better songs in Ouendan 2 is Julia ni Shoshin from the Checkers. In this scenario you play with the original Ouendan crew who is cheering on a hot blooded barber who makes wild haircuts. He meets a new rival barber and the only way […]

Nodame Cantabile DS: Ouendan meets Mozart

By Richard . May 4, 2007 . 11:25am

Since Ouendan proved to be mighty fun on the DS, I was extremely curious when I heard about Nodame Cantabile, another Ouendan-like rhythm game with classical music. While the game is based on the Nodame Cantabile manga series, previous knowledge of the story is not necessary to enjoy the game. You play as a journalist […]
