This Week on the Nintendo Channel: Super Mario Galaxy 2 TV spots

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 11 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 6:25:31 AM GMT
Look -- the above TV spots for Super Mario Galaxy 2 are really slick and all, but now we've got one thing on our mind: pancakes. Now that we know there's a stack of flapjacks out there with its own gravitational pull, we just can't wait to dig in. Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long to satiate our need for edible planetary bodies. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 6:20:51 AM GMT
Many of you likely remember the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a story penned by Haden Blackman which told the tale of Darth Vader's secret apprentice. Now the sequel has been announced and Blackman is not only returning to work on the sequel, but has also been tapped to be the scribe on this 88-page trade from Dark Horse. (more)

Alpha Protocol's Michael Thorton goes globetrotting in latest trailer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 21 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 6:15:54 AM GMT
When he's not busy being formally introduced or eloquently headslamming foes, Alpha Protocol's Michael Thorton is hopping on planes, trains, and automobiles around the globe. In the game's latest trailer (found after the break), Thorton travels to exotic locales the world over ... and kills people! He's a lot like that James Bond fella, but without the namby pamby English accent getting in the way (we kid, Brits!). AP is due to hit retailers in under two weeks -- just enough time for Thorton to tour the... (more)

Final Fantasy XIII, Dragon Quest IX, Batman sales lead Square Enix fiscal year

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 24 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 6:12:37 AM GMT
Square Enix had a good fiscal year (ended March 31, 2010), but its games division had a very good year. Final Fantasy XIII sold over five million units globally during the period, with the Japan-only release of Dragon Quest IX coming in second with 4.26 million units. Thanks to the company's acquisition of Eidos last year, the company could count on some Batman: Arkham Asylum cash, with the pointy-eared detective's critically acclaimed title selling 3.24 million units -- it's a shame Square won't get a ...

If you've been interested in Netflix on the PS3 but live in Europe, you'll soon have access to a similar service: MUBI. It's a movie streaming service that focuses on art house, independent and critically acclaimed fare with integrated social networking features -- "we emphasize quality over quantity," wrote CEO and founder Efe Cakarel on the PlayStation Blog.

Review: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (Xbox 360)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 30 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 6:07:06 AM GMT
When I think about it, Ubisoft really couldn't have chosen a more appropriate subtitle for the latest Prince of Persia outing, "The Forgotten Sands." It really does feel as if the game was in development years ago and perhaps shelved in favor of the dramatic series "reboot" in 2008 -- and then forgotten. (more)

Metareview: Red Dead Redemption

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 37 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 5:59:55 AM GMT
As you'd imagine, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption ain't the depiction of the west your daddy used to see on Bonanza every week. It's a violent, immoral west and, if the reviews below are to be believed, it actually makes for a pretty darn good game. And here we thought Mad Dog McCree was the most dastardly dude the high plains had to offer. (more)

PSN Tuesday: Rocket Knight, Dragon Age's Darkspawn Chronicles

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 14 hours, 39 minutes ago
Wednesday, May 19, 2010 5:57:59 AM GMT
PSN Tuesday brings the cute and epic this week. Cute comes in the form of Rocket Knight, which may have some of its sales fueled by nostalgia, but can be a blast for those in the mood for classic (pseudo) 2D side-scrolling. The epic is delivered by Dragon Age: Origins' "Darkspawn Chronicles" DLC, which is just the latest add-on in the saga of Ferelden -- this one with a "what if" twist. (more)

Cosplay enthusiasts will tell you: making costumes based on your favorite fictional characters can be expensive. Depending on how accurate a recreation you're going for, you can drop some serious duckets on materials. Not to mention the trouble of explaining to your parents who Marcus Phoenix is and why you would want to dress up like him. (more)

In January, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told investors that the company would "refocus"' its development efforts on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2010, with particular emphasis on iterating its major franchises on the HD consoles. Today, as Ubisoft reported its earnings (actually, losses) for the fiscal year ending March 31, the company remained committed to the ongoing strategy outlined earlier this year. (more)

Dante's Inferno dev hiring for 'sequel to major new IP'

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 5:38:48 AM GMT
In a recent job listing on Gamasutra, EA's Visceral Games studio put out a feeler for "an experienced Environment Artist for an existing action/adventure franchise." We might normally excuse this as a job listing for the currently-in-development Dead Space 2, but the listing further details the project as "a major opportunity to contribute to a bold new franchise, heavily backed by the EA Games Label ... the sequel to a major new IP at the award-winning Visceral Games."

Activision and Treyarch have released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops. You may remember the initial teaser from a couple weeks back, but this one -- clocking in at a more satisfying 1 minute 42 seconds -- is, as promised by Treyarch community manager Josh Olin last week, "brand-new, 100% gameplay." Watch it in full after the break. (more)

Master Chief wants to take you to the space bar

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 5:35:10 AM GMT
We've seen Master Chief do some bizarre stuff over the years. He's fallen in love with a Storm Trooper and even taken time off to pursue an acting career. Now he's trying to break into the burgeoning German music scene under the stage name of Michael Wendler, with his first single, "Piloten wie Wir." Somewhere right now, David Hasselhoff is probably crying into a cheeseburger. (more)
