The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess had a lot to live up to. Since the release of Ocarina of Time, people wanted a game that was just as good, a feat that was nearly impossible. Nintendo gave them The Wind Waker, and while that is a fantastic game, it didn’t quite satisfy; fans wanted an adult Link, they wanted a darker, more mature game. When Twilight Princess was first shown, people had heart attacks. Was this the Zelda game they were waiting for, a game like Ocarina of Time? The answer to that question, is yes… and no.

Gamer Limit Review: Okami
By: | February 5th, 2009

okamiheader3To begin with, I never got around to playing Okami when it originally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2006.  When I heard the game had come out for the Wii with updated controls and enhanced graphics, I decided to check it out.  For this reason I won’t be drawing any comparisons to the PS2′s analog stick-based controls and the Wii’s motion controls.  There are also many comparisons that have been made between modern Zelda games and Okami, but I’ve decided to review the game on its own merits as opposed to drawing too many comparisons.



Released today is the latest trailer for House of the Dead: Overkill, which is the 8th spinoff from the House of the Dead series, check out the GrindHouse-esque trailer below.



The Winter Olympics are kicking it off in Vancouver next year. Who knew right? Pictures have surfaced in Spanish magazine Nintendo Accion that show Mario and Sonic teaming up again for an Olympic showdown. SEGA has denied this, but we all know they can’t resist another money maker.

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2007 and the Nintendo DS in 2008. The Wii version sold well over 5 million copies. Read more… »


Just two weeks before the release of Tenchu: Shadow Assassins for the WII, Ubisoft has released a new trailer of the much anticipated game showing Rikimaru in all his ninja glory.



The developers of Puzzle Quest: Galactrix one of the most hyped upcoming puzzle games have just released a Flash demo of the game, it’s pretty well done and definitely leaves you wanting more.



Gamers of all shapes and sizes have always been quick to hate on the Wii. Even I, an NES owner, will admit when the Wii first came out, I didn’t think it had much to offer. Casuals have been quick to note the excess of shovelware, and hardcore gamers have been calling the system “kiddie” and “casual only” since 2006. Recent developments have changed my entire perception on the Wii, and I believe they will start to show their effects on the hardcore community. Don’t love the Wii yet? Read on, you will.

Later this month in Japan, the Wii will be getting it’s own streaming video channel compliments of Fujisoft. Right now, it just looks like cartoons like Transformers and anime such as Astroboy will be available for Wii points. Called “Minna no Theater”, or “Everybody’s Theater” in english, this service looks to push the Wii as more than just a video gaming device.



Yet another Sonic game has been in the works for a while, ‘Sonic and The Black Knight’ another Wii exclusive.  The gimmick this time is that it has ‘Sword Fighting’ and hence gameplay will be somewhat similar to the recent failure Sonic Unleashed.



With many other gaming sites just covering a few games for each platform, it’s hard to tell what is really coming out in 2009. 2009 is a rather odd year for exclusives, as the Playstation 3 and 360 are sharing a lot of big titles. This also looks like it’s going to be a big year for the Wii, with a few blockbuster mature titles sneaking in with some dynamite casual games.

Without further ado, here are the most anticipated games of 2009 for the Playstation 3, the Xbox 360, and the Wii. Read more… »


It goes without saying that the Wii can not handle anywhere near the graphic power of the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, although that doesn’t stop developers downsampling their games for the Wii crowd, check out the latest Dead Rising example below.



An interesting patent has just been unearthed by some gaming enthusiasts, the patent was filled on March 10, 2006 and it shows pretty clearly what we now know as the ‘Wii Remote’, and it being used an accessory for the GameCube with a Wavebird-esque type adapter to use it with. There’s a lot of jargon in the patent but the images seem to be the more interesting part, check them out below.
