July 16, 2008

Bowja The Ninja 2 - In Bigman's Compound, the game might not be what you'd expect. Quirky clickin' adventurin' with the red little warrior feels fresh and fun.

Microsoft's Press Conference on the first official day of E3 announced some whoppers. Huge XBox LIVE improvements (including integrated 3D avatars), the ability to copy full Xbox 360 games to the hard drive, every Netflix movie available from LIVE and they've revealed that Final Fantasy XIII will be released on the 360 at launch. Ouch Sony, ouch.

Nintendo fought back with Wii Motion Plus, a plug-in device for the Wii Remote which enhances precision and responsiveness to the remote's movements. Now maybe we can have a real swordfighting game on the Wii? However, hardcore gamers are seemingly disappointed with Nintendo as there are no new announcements about their more serious franchises.

Sony shows off price drops of a bunch of their greatest PS3 titles, and shows off trailers for Infamous, Resistance 2, God of War 3 and Massive Action Game -- a squad based multiplayer fragfest with up to 256 players fighting together.

Also showcased was a quirky 50s style intro and several minutes of gameplay for Fallout 3. I've been a Fallout fan since the incredible original, and seeing this trailer sends shivers down my spine, great work Bethesda! Warning: Fallout 3 is for Mature audiences only.

Do you have what it takes to be the ultimate Governor of Poker? Scheme, twist and finagle your way into winning the pot -- then buy the whole town out from under them!

Will Wright's Spore is drawing attention and generating creativity before the game is even released! Some clever users are recreating classic Mario, Pokemon and other Video Game Characters using Spore's Creature Creator.

Klaatu Barada Nikto! The three infamous words return in the remake of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' -- now with 100% more Keanu Reeves! Oldschool sci-fi fans are eager to find out whether this turns out as an homage or an abomination to the classic.

Defend Your Castle is still one of the most widely appreciated and downloaded games on Nintendo's WiiWare service. Thanks for helping us make it a success!

May 26, 2008

Early reception to Defend your Castle has been exceptional, with the title appearing in the #1 spot on the Wii Shop Channel's most popular list of WiiWare titles in the US, above Final Fantasy: MLAAK and the critically acclaimed Lost Winds. Chris Kohler of Wired calls the game "five bucks worth of awesome", and G4TV has named Defend your Castle "hands-down the winner of the bunch" in their coverage of the WiiWare launch line-up. You can pick up Defend your Castle for 500 Wii Points in the Americas, with availability in Europe arriving shortly.

Territory War Online is the explosive multiplayer sequel to the original hit, Territory War. A throwback to classic games such as Worms and Scorched Earth, Territory War Online lets you jump right into the action, or log in with your XGen account to record your stats and create a custom team. Dominate your opponent with grenades, rocket-launchers, shotguns, and more in 5 different stages with fully destructible terrain.

Chronotron is a time-based platform puzzler not unlike Braid in premise, but unique in its execution. Return all versions of yourself to the Time Pod intact, while taking caution to avoid creating a paradox by altering the past.

Dino Run! Flee for the sake of your species, run like there is no tomorrow, and narrowly escape extinction! Another fabulously quirky game from our friends at PixelJam, Dino Run uses XGen's MMOcha technology to bring you multiplayer races against your friends -- or the rest of the world!

Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a truly great series of books that will live forever in the hearts of geeks, nerds, sci-fi and comedy fans the world over. One thing that you may have missed is the Text Adventure Game based on the series of books originally released in the year 1984. This makes the game older then most of the users who visit our site. Play the Flash Conversion of the game here for some nostalgia.

As a follow up to a story in a previous news post, here's the much-rumored controller patent that Microsoft filed in order to compete with the motion sensitive Wii controls. Nothing is official as to whether they intend to actually use said patent, but it's interesting none-the-less.

Defend Your Castle on WiiWare edges ever closer to release, keep an eye out for official words from Nintendo soon...

April 14, 2008

In the words of the immortal John Cleese; 'And now for something completely different'. Doeo is probably unlike anything you've ever played before, the only thing bearing a slight resemblance would have to be Katamari Damacy. It's an experience you simply have to try for yourself.

The coolest time-lapse nature video you'll see all day; the 6-foot wide transforming Amazon Waterlilly, specializing in temporary beetle incarceration!

Oh and if you've been eagerly following any of the Defend Your Castle WiiWare hype flying around, then be sure to grab the May 2008 edition of Nintendo Power this week for some exclusives.

April 8, 2008

Tromp, smash and dominate the countryside; one unit at a time. Warlords: Call to Arms puts you in command of any of the distinct factions vying for control of the continent. Another great game from Ben Olding.

Speculation has risen concerning rumors that Microsoft has their own version of Nintendo's Wii Remote in development. Including a rough sketch provided by the 'source' that looks eerily close to the device that millions of Wii fans have come to love. Only time will tell if this 'leak' has any validity.

Speaking of affection for Nintendo, this person clearly has a level of devotion bordering on jabbering insanity.
