Congratulations are in order. With over one million copies sold in the first month, Ghostbusters The Video Game seems to have made an appropriate comeback. Was it the witty dialogue and inane humor that spawned this revival, or perhaps it was the satisfying feeling you got whenever you actually captured a ghoul.

Ghostbusters released on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, and DS in June and was received quite well. With these new numbers confirmed, rumors are beginning to abound regarding the continuation of the video game portion of the franchise.

Sales figures are not something that should take up too much of any gamer’s time. Unless, of course, you own shares in a company, work within one or are concentrating your attention on a small or enormous business that you hope will earn enough cash to make ends meet, resulting in more juicy games to play.

Having said that, hit the jump and check out this list of top-selling games from the first half of 2009 in the UK!

I feel as if, from the get-go, I had a completely different expectation as to what this game would offer me. Part of it is the title: there are magicians, but there’s not exactly much magicking; there are “Mysterious Times”, but rather than the times our characters live in being mysterious, there is quite literally a “Mystery Time” each week. More importantly, though, there are no ‘Quests.’ Or, maybe there are – I didn’t finish the game (and there’s a very good reason why), but I played the game for almost two months without finding a single ‘Quest’.

Still, I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Just because the name is misleading doesn’t mean the game should be excluded from getting a fair critique, and Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times is no exception. So, let’s get started, shall we?

Pokémon , as a series, has thrived on repetition. For over ten years, Game Freak has managed to ensure that the Pokémon franchise is one of Nintendo’s most successful without making any drastic changes to the way Pokémon is played.

Even after ten years, the series has consistently sold hundreds of thousands of copies, even though Magikarp still stinks, and a level 7 Zubat will still manage to attack you every 2 steps in any dungeon in the game. Yet the Pokémon community is alive and well. Competitive Pokémon battling has been thriving since the games first debuted. Those who participate take Pokémon out of the casual arena and unexpectedly transform the experience into the hard-core.

Atlus has become a favorite among RPG gamers for their localization of hardcore RPGs, finding their own little cult; and one of their latest DS offerings certainly supports that claim. Developed by Success, The Dark Spire is an old-school first-person dungeon crawler, very similar to Wizardry or even Atlus’ very own Etrian Odyssey.

The game may be too traditional for the average RPG fan, so it’s important to take a look at what it offers them. Does it do a good job at delivering an old-school experience? Read on to find out.

Every once in a while, a game will come along and blow everything you knew about a particular genre out of the water. For instance, remember the first time you played Portal? Do you recall that complete sense of awe you had when attempting to unlock the secrets of using both color portals at once? What about the complete feeling of satisfaction you receive when you finally figure it out?

Knights in the Nightmare re-creates that same feeling with the Strategy RPG genre. Enter a world where Strategy and Shoot ‘Em Ups collide. Read more… »

Let’s be honest, Nintendo is the Green Peace of the gaming world. I’ve tried taking my Mario, Zelda, and Metroid cartridges to the local recycling center, but they don’t seem to get the idea that these are franchises that continuously get rinsed out and reused. As all of these franchises are in their twenties now, you’d think there’d be confusion about where to go and what to do with their lives. But they keep moving forward, and the question becomes whether or not the games themselves remain quality.

The newest Zelda installment on the DS, Spirit Tracks, promises that as long as there is a platform for him, Link will be grappling and boomeranging his way to Zelda, whether by plane, train, or sail boat. Read more… »
