No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise Trailer

December 4, 2009

Here is the first trailer for Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise. Still no word on a U.S. release, but they have said that the motion control ( which pretty much made NMH) is being taken out of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. This writer has only one thing to say to that; DUUUHHHHHHHHHH. I wouldn’t think that anyone would expect the game to retain the motion controls for the HD consoles, even if the PS3 has a motion control set up. The Sixaxis probably isn’t precise enough for it.

Wii Internet Channel now free!

September 1, 2009

wii-internet-channel-1Remember when the Internet channel on the Nintendo Wii was a free trial? Then after that you had to pay 500 points, or $5, in order to keep it?

There was a price drop on the channel, a 500 point price drop! That’s right, you can now have the internet channel on your wii for frii…I mean free!

Wait, you paid for it? Don’t worry, you are getting a refund…sorta. Nintendo is giving people that paid for the internet channel a “free” Nintendo game from the Virtual Console.

The internet channel is officially free to U.S. residents today, the game deal doesn’t start until October and lasts until the end of the year.

Earthworm Jim crawling to consoles again!

August 17, 2009

jimSega has been running a poll for which Genesis game you wanted to see come to the download markets of our current systems. Earthworm Jim crushed them under his super suit boot! I’m not sure why Sega was deciding this, EWJ was on just about every system there was in the 90’s.

Love/Hate: Difficulty Level

July 26, 2009

lovehate copy

Difficulty level  is the factor that separates the men from the boys, or the girls from the women (yes there are girl gamers, don’t freak out). Difficulty is a huge factor in games. Games can be too hard, and they can be too easy, and sometimes they are just right. Gamers all have their own preference for difficulty. I like a challenge when I play, but that same challenge can also discourage me from playing. This week I’m touching on difficulty and why we love and hate it.


Lazy Sunday Art Project: Cubeecraft

Love/Hate: Achievements and Trophies

July 18, 2009


Oh game related awards. How we love them, but at the same time hate them. They give us something to work towards, something to strive for in our games. For some they mean more than to others, I know a guy that’s got an 80k gamer score on Xbox Live. The dude is serious business. In PS3 trophies…That’s like level 20 or something. I’m not really sure how those work. I’m assuming they are the same as achievements, just a different scoring method.
