Nicktoons Attack of the Toybot screens.

October 30, 2007

Let point out that until about 15 minutes ago I wasn’t interested in this game AT ALL (because believe me after Zim got cancelled Nickelodeon went downhill).

Now this is just too cool, can we hope for a little Zim action?

This Week’s VC Update (Halloween edition)

October 30, 2007

-Sorry it’s late (again) I’ve been real busy for the past few days, and I probably will be until November has ended.

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest- NES, Rated E

I the sequel to Castlevania you play as Simon Belmont. This time, it’s up to you to save the world and lift an evil curse by assembling the scattered remains from Dracula’s body.  You of course, are equipted with your trust whip (kind of a trademark in the castlevania universe.  I deffinatly like the music, and the game doesn’t look half bad at all.  If I get any of this weeks VC games, this will be it.

Samurai-Ghost- Turbografx16, Rated E 10+

 In the action platformer Samurai Ghost, you play as well a Samurai Ghost (ooo Spoooky).  It’s up to you to defeat the evil spirits of a long dead shogun.  Altogether, this game just doesn’t look all that fun to me, I may be wrong but I don’t think I’ll be downloading this one.

Magician Lord- NEOGEO, Rated T

In Magician Lord, you play as a young magician who is the last in the line for Magician lords.  You must battle your way through 8 stages to become the new Magician Lord (hooray for you!)  I just want to point out that I know a real Magician (Infact he’s Danny’s brother) and if his life is anything like the game, that’s pretty cool, but just as a game I’m not all that interested.

Wii Remote Jacket Comparisons

October 27, 2007

No Wii Price Cut, but gifts are on the way.

October 27, 2007

Yesterday Nintendo confirmed that there would be no wii price cut this year.  This comes as no surprise sense the wii is already so much cheaper than the other systems out now.  But Iwata did confirm that soon gamers will ba able to buy VC games and send them to their friends wiis as gifts.  This is pretty cool, I don’t think any of the other virtual shop type programs can do this yet but this just makes giving gifts that much easier.

ps, I got the new Wii jackets yesterday, and I’ll be doing a video impression at some time today, as well as a new “But on a more personal note…”

This Week’s VC Update

October 23, 2007

Sorry it’s late, I wasn’t home at all yesterday.

Lunar Pool- NES, Rated E

Basically billiards but in the future.  While the game looks somewhat fun I can’t seem to get to excited for it sense I already have pool in Wii Play, and an actual pool table, but for those who don’t have either and still have a strong urge to play pool why not try some Lunar Pool?

 Ninja JaJaMaru-kun- NES, Rated E

In Ninja JaJaMaru-Kun, you play as a Ninja named JaJaMaru, and you must rescue a kidnapped princess (I think  just realized how often this happens in game).  Anyway from the video below, I feel oddly attracted to this game, while I have no idea what’s going the art style just has me pulled in, weird.

Golden Axe III- Genesis, Rated E10+

Just out of curiosity can Axe be spelled ax as well?  Anyway, Golden Axe III is the thrid game in the Golden Axe Series.  I haven’t played any of the other Golden Axe titles and I can’t say I’m super excited for this one, but if you like one and two, why not three?

Why didn’t i think of this before

October 21, 2007

Well a while back a friend of mine picked me up a shirt from a video game thing of sorts, and on it it says Soldiers heroes of world war II. Well it took me till today to even think hmm maybe this is a game, which after a google search i found HEY it is Surprise surprise. Well i am currently downloading the free demo of it and ill be back later after i have given it a try. It appears to be a WWII RTS, which i think is AMAZING a combination of two of my favorite things

But on a more personal note…The Smash Bros Delay

October 20, 2007

So hopefully we all know that Smash Bros. Brawl has been pushed back to Feb. 10th instead of coming out on December 3rd.  And I have to say at first this was a big disappointment, but then I started thinking about it and it has numerous pros. 

First of all this can help the development team improve the Wifi aspects of the game.  If we’re lucky the amount of online players could increase from 4 to maybe 8.  It could also end up like two years ago when Metroid Prime Hunters was pushed back and then they added both online multiplayer and voice chat, and trust me voice chat is the way to go with the new Smash Bros.

This also can give them more time to develop more levels, and perhaps snag some more third party characters to add to the fighters roster.  And I was expecting to have to pick up Brawl after school on the 10th until I added to my Mac’s calendar and noticed that the 10th is infact a Sunday, and that means I don’t have to go to school at all, it’ll be nothing but and all out Smash Bros Marathon!  Woo!

Anyone have anything to add, or disagree with?
