UKIE wants 30% games industry tax break, UK begins tax plan scrutiny

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1894 days, 23 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 7:54:14 AM GMT
UKIE, a trade group for the entertainment industry in the UK, joined UK gaming trade association TIGA in calling for a tax relief flat rate of 30 percent across the industry, in the hopes of stimulating the UK's game development business. In March, UK chancellor George Osborne pledged to "turn Britain into Europe's technology centre, starting with digital content," by extending the country's film tax breaks to the TV, animation and gaming industries.

Nintendo Land features Balloon Fight-inspired game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1895 days, 23 hours, 24 minutes ago
Tuesday, September 11, 2012 8:24:19 AM GMT
"Balloon Trip Breeze," one of the "attractions" in the Wii U minigame collection Nintendo Land, is inspired by the side-scrolling "Balloon Trip" adventure found in the NES' Balloon Fight. In Balloon Trip Breeze, players direct a floating balloon rider by swiping with the stylus and tapping to break blocks, to guide him safely through the obstacle-laden airways. (more)

BioShock Infinite coming to Wii U after PS3/360

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1896 days, 23 hours, 12 minutes ago
Monday, September 10, 2012 8:35:50 AM GMT
Despite the fact that the console hasn't even been released yet, the Wii U has already become a bastion for late PS3/360 ports, including Mass Effect 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, Darksiders 2, and Batman: Arkham City to name a few. While these dated games don't do a heck of a lot to build confidence in consumers that 3rd parties are going to prioritize development on the Wii U, they at least come with the excuse that the Wii U wasn't on the market at the time of their original release.

Bethesda says Wii U doesn't 'fit into' its plans yet

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1898 days, 22 hours, 18 minutes ago
Saturday, September 08, 2012 9:30:17 AM GMT
Bethesda's Pete Hines has revealed that the Elder Scrolls publisher is not yet ready to embrace the Wii U, stating that Nintendo's console does not fit in with its plans. Bethesda will put its games on any system "that will support them," but the Wii U is not yet one of those systems. (more)

Bethesda undecided on Wii U, cautious on next gen consoles

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1898 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes ago
Saturday, September 08, 2012 8:53:55 AM GMT
Though the WiiPad might seem like an excellent instrument for managing your inventory of cheese wheels and soul gems in Skyrim, Bethesda doesn't have plans for Nintendo's upcoming console just yet. Bethesda marketing VP Pete Hines says the studio's "approach has been to put our games out on all of the platforms that will support them," but that "so far the Wii hasn't fitted into that. Whether Wii U does down the road is TBD." (more)

NPD: Darksiders 2 sold 247K copies in August

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1898 days, 22 hours, 55 minutes ago
Saturday, September 08, 2012 8:53:10 AM GMT
Darksiders 2 brought Death to top of the NPD charts for the month of August, having launched on August 14 in North America. In close to two weeks – the cut-off for NPD's August period was August 25 – the Vigil Games sequel managed to move 247,000 copies at retail, GI.biz reports. This figure doesn't account for international sales or Steam, and is perhaps a muted victory in a month that saw software sales go down year-over-year. (more)

Big and small, fat and skinny – it doesn't matter who you are, Death eventually comes for us all. Even if you're an 80-foot tall demon thing with a tentacle mouth and biceps that would put Hulk Hogan to shame, Death will soon come knocking in Darksiders 2. (more)

A little more on Sports Connection for Wii U

Friday, August 17, 2012 6:29:46 AM GMT
Simple, fun, and oddly addicting, 2007's Wii Sports is perhaps the game most credible in establishing Nintendo's early dominance in the casual market. In a fashion similar to Wii Sports, Ubisoft's upcoming Sports Connection for Wii U aims to emulate that same formula for similar results. (more)

I've been watching Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth with a fair bit of curiosity. When announced as a Kinect title that would not be a tie-in to the recently released film, I put myself in media blackout mode in anticipation for my first chance to go hands-on with the game. (more)

Maxwell suits up Mario-style in Scribblenauts Unlimited

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1928 days, 50 minutes ago
Friday, August 10, 2012 6:58:07 AM GMT
What do Maxwell and Mario have in common? Apparently a wardrobe. The latest issue of Nintendo Power reports that Maxwell will be able to wear a tanuki or frog suit, the power ups that Mario first wore Super Mario Bros. 3, in Scribblenauts Unlimited. A hamburger or dog suit can be worn too (the latter of which I will pretend is a reference to Wilfred). The rag also reveals a few of the game's new nouns and adjectives, including Cat Burglar, Mullet, Rubber Chicken, Urinal, Moustachioed, Mummified and Flat... (more)

Namco Bandai is jumping on the Germany train (rather than the "train to Germany" -- fare from Tokyo to Cologne would be insane) with its Gamescom 2012 lineup. Namco will be showing off its Wii U installment Tank! Tank! Tank! and will demo the Star Trek movie tie-in game in its very own seated theater at stand C11 in hall 9. (more)

Preview: FIFA 13 Wii U has some fly new features

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1932 days, 23 hours, 23 minutes ago
Sunday, August 05, 2012 8:25:36 AM GMT
Madden 13 isn’t the only EA sports title launching alongside Nintendo’s incoming Wii U, as FIFA 13 will be too. Much like how the Vita’s FIFA Soccer was built on the framework of FIFA 11, FIFA 13 on the Wii U is something like a FIFA 12.5. This might not be too bad of a deal, given that the PS3 and 360 versions are seeing more subtle iterative changes, compared to 12’s more dramatic upgrade from 11. (more)
