Gamer Limit Review: Kororinpa
By: | March 18th, 2009

Marbles! The fun little glass balls that everyone loves to play with, good for rolling, playing and throwing at people. Kororinpa is a marble game. Based on former classics like Marble Madness, you take control of a marble, rolling it through a number of labyrinth like levels. Each of the levels include tricky obstacles for you to navigate around.

Released a few days ago is the debut trailer for  Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, the upcoming sequel to the 2007 Wii rail shooter “Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles”. The trailer makes this game look like the bad-ass big brother of its predecessor.

Gamer Limit Review: MadWorld

Fans of any media are no stranger to violence. In Michael Haneke’s film Funny Games, visceral off screen violence and repeated breaking of the fourth wall comment on violence as a negative form of entertainment. Chuck Palahniuk’s book Haunted has a group of writers create violent situations by sabotaging food supplies, and each other, in an attempt to become more credible; thus stating that in media, more violence means more entertainment.

Does MadWorld join this overdramatization of violence? With over the top characters, violence, and graphical presentation Madworld makes the statement “violence is fun” successfully, but not perfectly.

Wii Price Hike In UK

With the Wii flying off shelves since it was first released, I was very surprised Nintendo stuck with their original price plan for so long. Last year Nintendo could of raised the price to £250 and it would of still sold like hotcakes. Now that the sales have started to decline slightly, they decide to raise the price.

Since the release of Sonic Adventure 2 in 2001, Sonic the Hedgehog has been in a coma. His 3D outings have generated limited success on the consoles while his portable endeavors have garnered rave reviews because they mastered the formula the Sega Genesis made famous. After reading about Sonic and the Black Knight (SBK) in Nintendo Power last year, I eagerly anticipated its release, hoping that it would mark the removal of the anthropomorphic blue blur from life support.

There are not too many games about bugs, or even more specific, Arachnids. So as a nice change of pace, Rainbow Studios has provided a new Wii game, which is coincidentally a nice change of pace for them and on the console which is also a nice change of pace. Enter Deadly Creatures, the action adventure game in which you explore the world as a Tarantula and a Scorpion. So is this breath of fresh air actually good? Read on to find out.

The Paper Mario series is quite an interesting one. The original Paper Mario stood as a faux sequel for Super Mario RPG. At this point Mario was still new to the world of Role Playing, and Paper Mario for the N64 was just the ticket he needed to worm his way into another genre, especially with Mario RPG’s release being limited worldwide. With Super Paper Mario being the 3rd game in the Paper Mario series, Mario’s found his feet and planted them firmly, right on top of a Goomba.

The Conduit’s hype has been building for quite a few months now, and it certainly looks to be a decent game… but anything beyond decent doesn’t look apparent in the footage, check out the latest trailer below.

When you think of sticking your fingers in someone’s nose, balancing a broom on your hand or shoving false teeth in an old woman’s mouth you most certainly don’t think of videogames. Well you might, if you were thinking of WarioWare. Wario is back and has knocked Mario of the party game pedestal never to return. Forget Mario Party, WarioWare is where it’s at, and Smooth Moves feels right at home on the Wii.

“It’s a me! Mario!” Those are four words that can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Mario is one of the biggest icons in gaming, and i challenge you to find a single gamer who doesn’t know who he is. From the moment we completed Super Mario 64 we wanted more. Super Mario Sunshine just couldn’t satisfy our thirst for Mario platforming.

But in 2007 Nintendo released Super Mario Galaxy, and it was out of this world.

With the Nintendo Wii already sporting a huge catalogue of controllers to use, normally any new controller would pass by with little or no notice, just another to add to the list. However, this latest piece of gear from Ninty has caught my interest.
