At One Point Was There Really A Disaster: Day Of Crisis Sequel On The Table?

By Spencer . November 11, 2008 . 3:45pm

Sales wise Disaster: Day of Crisis isn’t looking hot, but things weren’t always this way. During Disaster: Day of Crisis’ long development cycle Monolith Soft or maybe Nintendo considered a cliffhanger ending to lead up to the next installment of a possible Disaster series. Like a DVD extra an “alterative ending” unlocks after you beat […]

By Spencer . November 5, 2008 . 1:55pm

We don’t often talk about sales number on Siliconera because a “good” game doesn’t necessarily yield “good” sales, but in this case I’m going to break the rule. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie is reportedly waiting to see how Disaster: Day of Crisis does in Europe before making a decision to publish the game […]

Disaster: Day Of Bears Vs. Teddy Bears

By Spencer . October 27, 2008 . 7:35pm

Disaster: Day of Crisis is chock full only in Hollywood moments. A fight against a grizzly bear is one of them. Ray could use a gun to “take down” the enraged animal, but teddy bears are also a viable weapon. One of the unlockable weapons in Disaster: Day of Crisis is a variety of items […]

One Hell Of A Day With Disaster: Day Of Crisis

By Spencer . September 25, 2008 . 11:45am

At its core Disaster: Day of Crisis is a light gun game. The hodgepodge mix of driving events, a terrorist shooting gallery, waggle rescues, and light platforming are glued together by off-rails walking. When you encounter STORM units Disaster: Day Of Crisis switches into a light gun mode where you point, shoot, and kill with […]

How to survive Disaster: Day of Crisis

By Spencer . September 12, 2008 . 2:17am

To fire your gun you point with the remote and pull the trigger with the B button. Don’t break out the Wii Zapper yet. While Disaster: Day […]

Gameplay shots of Forever Blue and Disaster: Day of Crisis

By Spencer . February 22, 2007 . 12:06pm

When Nintendo showcased a reel of Wii games, Disaster: Day of Crisis stood out. The thirty second clip has a giant tidal wave crashing down on a city, an erupting volcano and concept art of the unnamed hero. It was different from the cheery Nintendo characters in Mario Party and the concept was solid even […]
