I admit I don’t jump out of my chair when Japanese rpg’s walk by. They’re eccentrically dressed and talk in statistics and levels, children of micromanagement. However, I do find solace in the arms of the strategy JRPG. While the characters may be just as stereotypical, the added element of using one’s brain pulls me into the arena.

It’s not about standing face to face in the antiquated style of “I hit you, then you hit me,” but moving pieces around a board and making calculated strikes. When I got my hands on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor for the DS, I wondered if this might be the mash up I’ve been waiting for: something to hybridize the different facets of what I dislike and love about JRPGs. What I got was a bloated, but engaging experience. Read more… »

Out on the floor on E3, many people could be overheard saying that 2009 is truly the year of the portable, as the sheer volume of titles being released over both the PSP and the DSi (not to mention the announcement of the PSP Go!) are nearly overwhelming.

Some garner more attention than others, and yet one shines brighter than all the rest, bringing together some of the most celebrated characters in videogame history for the first time ever: Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Read more… »

Golden Sun was one of the most successful RPG’s on the Game Boy Advance. Finally a sequel is headed our way for the Nintendo DS in 2010; and I’m sure that it’ll live up to its legacy. Check out the trailer after the jump. Read more… »

Owners of the Nintendo DSi have been promised the chance to create their own games with WarioWare.

Cammie Dunaway said you would decide “the very nature of the challenge”, which is a bold statement if ever I heard one. These games will then be easy to share with friends.

Nintendo are waxing lyrical about the DS and DSi. They have revealed Style Savvy, a fashion-fueled barrel of fun for the more feminine gamer!

James Patterson, mystery novelist is creating a ‘mystery game’ (surprise suprise) for the Nintendo DS! Womens Murder Club looks to be interesting! The game seems to be along the lines of titles like Hotel Dusk and Another Code.

More info when we get it!

lego-harry-potter

Warner Brothers Interactive officially announced what has been rumored for almost a year. Lego Harry Potter is in the works and will span the story of the first four films. You’ll have the ability to play as Harry, Ron, and Hermione and “attend classes, learn spells, mix potions, fly on broomsticks, and earn house points.”

Is it me, or would this be the first Lego game that would be worth adding a little bit of voice acting to?

Death defying antics? Leaps across wide canyons? Breaking apart enemies with a whip? Your hat snapping onto your head? Yeah! Sounds like Lego Indiana Jones to me. While the first was delegated to a pack-in for the Xbox 360, it seemed to have received wide praise across all platforms.

The bricked up Dr. Jones is at it again, with a brand new adventure. According to Activision and TellTale, the game will hit later this year with a new “hook”. This instance of Lego Indy is to include user created levels. It will be available for the DS, PSP, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PS3. Hit the jump for the PR.

In my younger years as a gamer, E3 was not the biggest place to learn about Nintendo. It was their annual Spaceworld event. It was here that they would reveal many of their new consoles, handhelds, and major game releases. It is being rumored that some sort of big event, not exactly Spaceworld is going to happen again.

Everybody’s Super Sonic Racing! Try to keep your feet right on the ground. When you’re Super Sonic Racing there’s no time to look around! We’re just Super Sonic Racing! Running to the point of no return…”

Wait, what? This isn’t a sequel to Sonic R? Sort of is? ….What, Mario Kart? Oh, I get it. You mean it is like Mario Kart. Well, for Sonic enthusiasts hoping that the blue blur was going to get back into racing old school style, go ahead and be absolutely dissapointed. At least there is a trailer for the brand new Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, right?

This company may not make as big of an impact as it once did, but it still holds a very special place in many an old school gamers heart. With classics like Arkanoid, Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands its hard not to love this little company. Shooting rainbows from your face has never been so enjoyable!

Today they announced that they are bringing a renewed focus to WiiWare and also to the Nintendo DS. This focus will bring four to the Wii, and two to the DS. Hit the jump for the press release that details everything.

It is so easy to forget the little guy. As the Xbox 360, Wii, and Playstation 3 all prepare for the ghastly invasion, the little handheld that could is getting ready to chug out its own version of Ghostbusters The Video Game. Bustin will make you feel good, even while you are on the move.

The trailer does not really show a lot of up close gameplay footage, but from what we can make out, it looks pretty nice. Also it is obvious it takes its graphical style from the Wii version of the game.  It’s labeled coming soon, so it will likely not see the same release date as its big brothers. Still not afraid? Check out the trailer!
