Rocko & Stimpy ressurected in for a game

By Spencer . October 30, 2007 . 11:33am

I’m sort of out of the Nicktoons loop since I'm no longer in their target demographic, but I still have fond memories of their classics. Stuff like Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s: Modern Life and Ahh! Real Monsters faded away years ago. Out of nowhere they are making a comeback in Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots, […]

Link and Sonic appear in Robot Chicken

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 […]

See the 53 minute long episode in Standard Definition (599MB) or High Def (2.4GB).   Also a bunch of Onechanbara VorteX costumes and playable characters got shoved onto the Xbox Live Marketplace. A new costume rings […]

Tak… gets a TV show

By Spencer . August 10, 2007 . 3:00am

He isn’t the first video game character to get a computer animated series and Tak certainly won’t be the last. However, there is something unusual about Tak’s silver screen debut. Like why? I can think of plenty of other games that sold more copies than the Tak trilogy and there are many more iconic video […]

Hands on Fusion Fall, the Cartoon Network MMO

By Spencer . July 25, 2007 . 11:21pm

Cartoon Network Universe: Fusion Fall is less like WOW and more like a massively multiplayer online platformer. In the demo I took control of Sharkyburke who was aided by familiar faces from Cartoon Network’s original programs. Fourarms from Ben 10 has a net ability and Mandark is a passive helper that boosts Sharkyburke’s jumping ability. […]

Game Party, a new Wii game?

By Spencer . June 14, 2007 . 12:33am

Two unannounced games popped up from Midway on EB Games’ pre-order list. The awkwardly titled Game Party is a Wii title with no details and it probably is not a remake of the NES game with the same name. Probably more interesting (because we at least have an idea about it) is a new Fosters […]

Watch: Dancing to the Price is Right

By Spencer . May 3, 2007 . 7:21am

Instead of waiting for Konami to choreograph the steps to new songs the Stepmania community takes matters in their own hands by making SIM files, with inhuman dance sequences only for the hardcore. While there are lots of songs out in the wild many of them fall into the video game music, anime theme or […]

Also, according to GameFly, there is a Nintendo DS game in development from D3 Publisher. The unannounced title seems possible since Cartoon Network and D3 Publisher […]

  Back to the same mysterious lists that supposedly “official” is an announcement about another dancing game for the Wii. Supposedly Activision is developing a game based on Dancing with the Stars set for release (maybe?) in November. We have not received a comment from Activision yet, so this is a hazy rumor until we […]
