New Mega Man Battle Game Screen and Info (DS)

One must not have had patience well a long time so that Capcom officializes the development of New Mega Man DS, the next title of the series to be born on Nintendo DS. The firm nippone thus benefitted from the opening of the site devoted to the 20th birthday of the series to reveal three artworks of New Mega Man […]

This week saw the arrival of two more un-Mario games — Brain […]

Microsoft’s Continued Wii Compliments

What do you think of the Wii? Do you agree there’s a lack of fun, wacky 360 games? I really like what Nintendo are doing with the Wii, especially as it should bring in new gamers. In terms of alternative games aimed at casual and non-gamers, I think, yes, you could say we didn’t do enough with the original Xbox. […]

Bits Studios Changing Name and Heading Gambling!

Puh. This has to be the biggest shock of the day. Quite possibly the best third-party developer, Bit Studios, with two of the best Gamecube Games, Rogue Ops and Die Hard:Vendetta, is looking at ONLINE GAMBLING. That’s ridiculous. According to a report from AFX News, officials from British video games developer Bits Studios have announced that the company expects to […]

Nacho Libre License

Nacho Libre License

What could be more crazy than Majesco purchasing Nacho Libre. It’s coming to the DS.

LucasArts Delayed Games Argument

LucasArts Delayed Games Argument

Seems quite hippocritical, but LucasArts believes that delaying a product, via not during a license properties release with a movie or not after Christmas when sales are down, is a really dumb move. In an interview with MCV, Jim Ward, President of LucasArts, criticized the industry for not sticking firm on release dates, even singling out EA’s recent set of […]

FTC Concerned

FTC Concerned

The industry has so far avoided much government intervention outside of the Federal Trade Commission investigating Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games for allegedly deceiving the ESRB, and yesterday’s subcommittee investigating videogame content and marketing suggests the federal government will remain hands-off — as long as the industry keeps itself in check.”Because the expressive content in video games has been considered […]

EGM Talks Wii

EGM Talks Wii

History began Nintendo, but will history repeat itself. Last place. It’s not somewhere Nintendo used to hang out. But relative (compared to PS1 and PS2) failures Nintendo 64 and GameCube have left the company-a formerly uncontested console champ-in unenviable territory. But talking to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata or Senior Managing Director (and Mario creator) Shigeru Miyamoto, you’d almost get the […]

Are Controllers the Next Wave?

I agree with Patrick Curry’s comments. I really think that motion-sensing will make old controllers obselete. Bill Gates, Master of all that is Microsoft, doesn’t care about motion sensitive controllers. Why would he? His company’s entrance into motion tech in 1998 via the SideWinder Freestyle Pro failed miserably. The PC-only peripheral was widely disdained, commonly disregarded, and quickly discarded. Currently, […]
