Halo 3: ODST tops the charts

After a short delay, the NPD Group has finally released the software and hardware sales data for the month of September. With a 1% increase over last year’s sales, the month of September was certainly an impressive sales month for both Halo 3: ODST and the Playstation 3 console.

Despite the fact many feel Halo 3: ODST felt more like an expansion, Halo fans proved, once again, just how important the Halo series is to the Xbox 360.

Hit the jump for the full breakdown of September’s NPD numbers.

Band Hero

If you heaved at the announcement of Lego Rock Band’s child friendly tracklisting last week, then be prepared to be further repulsed by the reveal of Band Hero’s teenage twaddle.

The full sugar coated soundtrack can be found after the jump, along with a listing of importable Guitar Hero songs which you predictably have to pay for. Band Hero is set to captivate your younger sister on November 3rd.

Truth be told, the debut trailer from Star Wars’ new Battlefront: Elite Squadron doesn’t show much. In fact, it almost shows nothing but a brief, shiny-looking CGI cutscene for fans to take a peek at. LucasArts are pretty honest when it comes down to it, they even note that these sharpshooting visuals aren’t the actual gameplay footage; how nice of them.

If 33-second trailers involving space Stormtroopers are your thing, scoot inside. Read more… »

Lego Rock Band

The full tracklisting for the upcoming Lego edition of Rock Band has been announced by Warner Bros today, featuring artists such as Bon Jovi, Europe and Queen and an assortment of more contemporary offerings to cater for its younger target audience.

A song exporting feature has also been confirmed, should you want to transfer every song to the adult Rock Band games, but this will entail a fee of $9.99 and is obtainable from “a unique code from an insert in their game manual into a dedicated website.”

Check out the complete rundown of Lego Rock Band‘s soundtrack after the break.

New Nostalgia video released

Nostalgia banner

Nostalgia, the soon-to-be-released steampunk RPG from Ignition, has a new trailer!  And it’s pretty.

Well, it’s as pretty as a steampunk RPG on the Nintendo DS can manage.  It actually looks like it shares a lot of character models with the recent Final Fantasy III and IV remakes…

But whatever.  New IP’s are always cool.  Check it out.

I have to preface this review by saying that I’m a huge Where’s Waldo fan. Ever since I was in grade school, the thrill of finding some striped British dude amongst a rambunctious crowd was second to none.

Well, Waldo has been mysteriously absent from the video game scene for the past thirteen years. Can a simultaneous Wii, DS, and PC release suddenly make the old chap relevant again? Read more… »

The Another World banner

You have probably heard of Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle).  You’ve also probably heard of Level 5 (Dark Cloud, Professor Layton).

When their powers combine, what do you get?  The biggest DS game ever – four gigabits of awesome.

Ever since its inception back in 2002, Kingdom Hearts has been a staple of the action-RPG genre, combining the intense and fluid combat of an action game and the customization and narrative of an RPG to create one glorious, genre-defining IP. Many have become engrossed with KH’s overarching story as they’ve been counting down the years, months, and days for an epic continuation; and to you I say, that day is finally at hand.

Grab your keyblade, slug that potion down, and come join me down the dual screened rabbit hole in the wold of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Read more… »

walmart

After trialing a few different schemes, Walmart has finally decided to start selling used games throughout its many stores. Only time will tell if this service will be worth it, but I don’t think that the major game retailers will be too pleased at losing more revenue to used game services.

To check out further conditions and news about the scheme, just hit the jump.

Gamer Limit Review: Scribblenauts
By: | September 26th, 2009

scribblenauts_0
The concept behind Scribblenauts seemed like it would be impossible to incorporate so many individual words and objects with their own unique characteristics into a single DS game. Fortunately, Scribblenauts will, more often than not, give an answer to any input from the player amongst the game’s mass of levels.

Unfortunately, the technology behind 5th Cell’s Scribblenauts falls short in evoking the creative genius within us all.

Today Ubisoft announced that a DS version of Assassin’s Creed II is currently in development by Griptonite Games (Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines).

Dubbed Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery, the game tells an “untold chapter” of ACII protagonist, Ezio’s life. Gamers will have to help rescue fellow assassins from the Spanish Inquisition and end a Templar plot to “sail west and discover the New World.” Read more… »

gamebreaker

In such an open-play game, it was only a matter of time until something game breaking was discovered… Sadly, it was within the first fortnight of release.

Apparently, if you combine Handcuffs with a Vending Machine, you can pretty much clear any action level. Check out the video after the jump.
