Super Mario Galaxy 2 trailer floats in

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2653 days, 2 hours, 55 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 6:50:05 AM GMT
The latest video excursion into Super Mario Galaxy 2 (after the break) features some very fancy aerial maneuvers by a gas-filled Yoshi. The side-scrolling segment of the game shown here requires Yoshi to float from Blimp Fruit to Blimp Fruit to stay aloft, and even relies on Yoshi's flutter jump to navigate between platforms around the stage.

Green Day: Rock Band more familiar to 'core audience' than The Beatles, MTV Games says

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2653 days, 3 hours, 2 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 6:43:00 AM GMT
The Beatles are a tough act to follow. And so, several weeks from the release of Green Day: Rock Band, publisher MTV Games has some promoting to do. MTV Games GM Scott Gutherie recently explained the reasoning behind picking the younger, less "classic rock"–oriented band for its next single-act music game following The Beatles: Rock Band. (more)

European Nintendo downloads: Bit.Trip Runner, Ghoul Patrol

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2653 days, 3 hours, 4 minutes ago
Sunday, May 16, 2010 6:41:02 AM GMT
The fourth game in Gaijin Games' retro-esque, musical Bit.Trip series arrives in Europe today, three days before Commander Video runs across the Atlantic Ocean. Should your tastes run more toward shooting than running, you can play Ghoul Patrol, the second game about zombies having eaten someone's neighbors. (more)

Mini projector + Wii Remote = no-glasses virtual reality

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2655 days, 13 hours, 23 minutes ago
Thursday, May 13, 2010 8:21:46 PM GMT
I almost vomited from motion sickness while watching this video, but it's worth working through to see this neat concept. Nirav Patel took a ShowWX miniature laser projector, a Wii Remote and a Spacepoint Fusion gyrometer and worked them all onto a Wii Zapper body to make a sort of free moving virtual reality device. The end result is a gun you can aim at the walls in any room and play something like a shooter, pointing up to see up, down to see down, in full 360 degree movement. The laser part of the p... (more)

Peripherally Speaking: VD-W3 Upscaler for Wii

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2655 days, 13 hours, 26 minutes ago
Thursday, May 13, 2010 8:18:40 PM GMT
Some time ago, we told you about a new accessory which would allow you to connect your Wii to a display using HDMI or DV-I. In addition, it can upscale video from the system's native 480i resolution up as far as 1080p. The VD-31 from VDGI Electronics is that product. (more)

Is this an ad for the Ford Fiesta or for the Wii?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2655 days, 13 hours, 43 minutes ago
Thursday, May 13, 2010 8:02:16 PM GMT
As a general rule, I loathe television commercials. So much so that I don't have cable or even an antenna for my TV because I simply refuse to watch the advertisements. And the worst commercials of all are those for cars. From pretentious Lexus ad down to the testosterone-fueled spots for Dodge trucks, I hate them all. Almost. (more)

Cosmonaut returns to WiiWare waters with Dive: The Medes Islands Secret

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2657 days, 9 hours, 15 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 12, 2010 12:29:32 AM GMT
Having made its WiiWare debut with last summer's "spot the difference" game 5 Spots Party, Cosmonaut Games is preparing to take the plunge again, this time with a decidedly more ambitious title. Due this summer, Dive: The Medes Islands Secret is a 10-level undersea exploration game featuring "2D underwater puzzle landscapes" and the Metroid-like ability to access new areas in already-visited locales after obtaining upgrades. Check out the first screens below as you wait to live the life aquatic. (more)

Know How To Double Xbox 360 Sales In Japan?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2659 days, 3 hours, 20 minutes ago
Monday, May 10, 2010 6:25:03 AM GMT
Japan isn't only The Land of the Rising Sun. It's also The Land of Xbox 360 Indifference. There must be a way to double weekly consoles sales. Turns out, there is. Well, at least once. In last week's hardware sales tally, the Xbox 360 sold 2,214 units in Japan. By comparison, there were 28,758 PSPs sold and 25,629 PS3s sold. Only the PSPgo at 1,544 units sold and the PS2 at 1,490 units lost to the Xbox 360. (more)

Wii at Last, Wii at Last, Thank God Almighty ...

Wii at Last, Wii at Last, Thank God Almighty ... So President Obama, once again, dinged video games in a speech. I'd rather send a more uplifting message, where a console is judged not by the content of its games, but the color of its skin. As we know, today is an historic day* in America - the first black Wii is available for purchase. Here's Black Nerd Comedy's take on what this means for our post-racial society. There's a Big Free Ad for some t-shirts he's hawking at the end; we don't endorse that a... (more)

Wii has 79 million sellers, but what are they?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2659 days, 3 hours, 26 minutes ago
Monday, May 10, 2010 6:18:43 AM GMT
Nintendo had a thing recently where they said some stuff to keep their investors happy. It was at this thing that they announced Wii Party and that Apple is their future enemy. They also mentioned that as of March 2010, 79 Wii games have shipped 1 million or more copies worldwide. A year earlier, that number was at 54. As you math-fans in the audience have already concluded, that means that in the past 12 months, 25 more Wii games have managed to achieve that magic, arbitrary, badge of success known as "... (more)

Bloody good Super Meat Boy gameplay montage

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2659 days, 3 hours, 29 minutes ago
Monday, May 10, 2010 6:15:34 AM GMT
Since Super Meat Boy was first announced, it's inspired two comic books, plenty of stuffed "animals", and an educational series of posts on game design, among other things. The US army even sent the game's developers a flag. Not bad for a game that hasn't even been released yet. (more)

Since the launch of both the DS and Wii, five games published by Nintendo have sold more than twenty million copies. Can you guess which ones? If you said Brain Age, you're close (18 million), but wrong. Mario Kart DS? Close again, at 17.9 million, but just as wrong. No, the five games to reach this amazing milestone are: (more)

Nintendo's black Wii console arrives early at Best Buy

Typical, isn't it? A full four days before these things are supposed to go on sale to the North American masses, an image of Nintendo's black Wii console has leaked from none other than Best Buy. This here shipment was actually received in the Great White North, but we're more than confident that similar packages are hitting the shipping docks of Best Buy stores everywhere here in the US, too. You'll notice that giant "Do Not Sell Before 05/09/2010" sticker there in the lower-right, but as we've seen in ... (more)

Yeah, I don't have it in me today. You'll get no clever medical tie-in within this write up. I was almost feeling a headline like Scrub In For New Screens from Trauma Team or something like that. I killed that before it happened. Despite my lack of motivation for puns, I have plenty for telling you about upcoming Wii medical game Trauma Team, which we gave an 8.5 (Buy it!) review score late last month. I feel like I'm a full-fledged doctor now after playing this game. I got the handwriting thing, the 15... (more)

MySims Skyheroes coming to Wii, DS, Xbox 360 and PS3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2663 days, 13 hours, 8 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 05, 2010 8:36:46 PM GMT
The MySims franchise has pretty much been exclusive to Nintendo's systems, mostly thanks to the fact it's designed to appeal entirely to the so-called "casual" demographic. So, it's a little surprising to see MySims SkyHeroes also coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Not that we care enough to be truly shocked or anything. SkyHeroes is exactly what it sounds like: An air combat game starring the mawkish creatures of the MySims universe. Players will have to tackle the Drone Army of Morcubus but I d... (more)

'Next evolution' of Pac-Man to be revealed at E3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2663 days, 13 hours, 51 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 05, 2010 7:54:21 PM GMT
The publisher sent out an invite for an E3 event in which it will show off, for the first time, the next Pac-Man game. The title will be introduced by former Marvel CEO Avi Arad, who is now executive advisor for Namco Bandai. What's the next step in Pac-Man's evolution? Well, he's gotten a mate, had a baby, grew legs, learned to jump, teamed up with other Pac-Men… I've got nothing. Clearly my vision for Pac-Man's future isn't as broad as Namco Bandai's. Hang tight, because the June E3 reveal is just ove... (more)

Nintendo of America released this video yesterday. Seriously. This wasn't recorded in 1994 in Reggie Fils-Aime's basement or anything. Its intended purpose is to inform you of the new Wii bundle, which comes with Wii Sports Resort and a MotionPlus in addition to all the stuff the old basic package came with for $199.99. (more)
