  1. Activision President and CEO Mike Griffith ended all rumors... Guitar Hero is coming to the Nintendo Wii during Activision’s 2008 fiscal year (April 07 – March 08). Mike Griffith stated, “In fiscal 2008, we will double our offerings on the DS and the Wii, including Spider-Man, Shrek, Transformers, and Guitar Hero." http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=t&ct=us/3-0&fp=45cae6e481516c97&ei=zOXKRbzaIZigogKExqjVCg&url=http%3A//www.thegamefeed.com/news-da5ad3aec1f9d209c4488213bafb41ff.html&cid=1113436096
  2. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles

    I'm hoping that you can open doors like you did in RE4. Kicking down a door with a front kick. Currently, that's how I open doors in real life.
  3. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

    The best of both worlds is (GCN) better graphics, improved controls + (PS2) proper widescreen and extra content.
  4. Iwata is ‘One of World’s Best CEOs’

    You're saying it the way it WAS. Things change. Once upon a time, before 1983 Atari was synonymous with videogames. In 1985 up to 1989, people used to say "he's/she's playing Nintendo". Nintendo was synonymous with the word videogames. Then Sony came along in 1997 and the Playstation brand name was identified with videogames. It's 2007 and the Playstation brand name is suffering the same fate as Atari and Nintendo. It's the way it works. Atari started selling crappy games (E.T. the extra terrestrial anyone?) and people put them aside. Nintendo wanted to control their own cartridge format instead of adopting the popular CD format and after they lost third party support, people stopped supporting Nintendo. Now Sony want people to spend a small fortune on a "computer" and plenty of those people are finding BETTER options to spend their money on. It's silly to think that the Playstation brand name will not suffer the same fate as the other has-been dominant gaming brands. In fact, people have already moved on to other brands. Some new ones (Xbox360) and even to some older ones (Nintendo).
  5. April Fools Round-up thread

    Most annoying are the clueless users who actually believe stuff like Nintendo buying Square-Enix or Lego Zelda, and spend the next ten months talking about it. Like if it was real or something.
  6. Wild Arms Developer Working With Wii

    Chocolate sake... the stuff Homer Simpson would love and drool over.
  7. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

    Too old school gamers, the fact that Mario and Sonic are featured in the same game makes it monumental. If you started off playing games from the psOne/N64/Dreamcast you'll probably don't get what's the big deal.
  8. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

    It would be too easy to win those bottlecaps using the wiimote.
  9. Sailor Moon for the Wii?

    I dunno about this. That anime went off the air years ago. The only ones who will find it interesting are hardcore anime freaks.
  10. Bad Game Covers

  11. Naruto: Clash of Ninja MVZ

    Well, I'm not that interested in anime/manga games... however, I know there is a huge market for this sort of thing. So the more the better, I guess. I only know about Dragon Ball and a little Pokemon anime here and there... that's about covers it... does "Scooby-Doo Get-A-Clue" count as anime?
  12. Indeed I have. But I guess a man's trash is another man's treasure.
  13. Tomb Raider: Legend

    Could be... however, I bet most of the type that found her polygons attractive were actually 13-17 year old teenagers. Puberty+testosterone= Me like Lara Croft very much. And I remember playing the first Tomb Raider, right after playing Super Mario 64. And it was terrible. Just making Lara jump & turn around was a chore. I couldn't figure out what the big deal was about Tomb Raider, since the gameplay sucked monkey balls. So I figured it was all about Lara Croft. And I was right. However, Legend is a good game.
  14. Not sure, but I have three 1019 "Memory Cube" cards by Mad Catz. I have about 32+ games in each of them. And still have lots of free space for more. However, most of my older game saves are saved in original Nintendo made memory cards that had limited memory. : peace:
  15. Koji Kondo Interview

    It's a great tune... here's a link to it: http://yoshi.2yr.net/files/core/php/getmp3.php?mp3=sms-delfinoplaza.wma And the finale theme song: http://yoshi.2yr.net/files/core/php/getmp3.php?mp3=Mario Sunshine Ending.mp3
  16. Koji Kondo Interview

    No, depends who you asked. If you asked Star Wars/Harry Potter freaks, they would say that. But some others would mention Danny Elfman (Batman, Spiderman, The Simpsons, etc.) and some more would mention Jerry Goldsmith (Alien, Poltergeist, Star Trek films, etc.). James Horner is the one behind Titanic and he probably is known by quite a few people. Among Videogame composers, I usually read more about Mr. Kondo and Tommy Tallarico.
  17. NEW No More Heroes Video!

    That's an exaggerated view on it. It's not like Suda 51 makes you experience games where you sit there for hours and stare at the artsy graphics. Because you don't. You still have to play. And some times, play hard. Killer 7 was on rails, like Star Fox 64. I enjoyed both of them. As I saw it, Killer 7 avoided me having to waste time trying to open doors that didn't open. In other "sand-box" games (GTA, True Crime), you roam around in places where you only interact with certain things. Most doors are just decorations and many buildings are off limits. I expect the same thing will happen in NMH, but that won't be a real problem. The game itself will probably give you hints as to where to go and how to get to what you need. That's how it was in Killer 7. And in practically every Miyamoto game. And yes, thankfully we can "take our pick" as to what games we want to play. And NMH looks amazing and probably will play amazing as well.
  18. Eiji Aonuma GDC Keynote

    I wonder who made it... he/she/all of them should be hired by Ninty. It's like that Chrono Trigger remake being developed by fans of the game. They released a trailer with everything in 3D and they had to stop production because Square demanded it. Fans with talent. Gotta love it.
  19. Koji Kondo Interview

    Y'know... I've been playing games with MIDI based music for ages. And when what you said happens to me (killing an enemy before the music spawns), instead of feeling bad about it, I feel great. Because I was able to kill the enemy THAT freakin' fast. I even have a chuckle. Never found that annoying or obnoxious. What I would find annoying would be a game where the music is not interactive and never changes it's mood. So one moment I'm walking on a field with serene music and the next moment I have to fight with the same serene music in the background. In most cases, the game dev will cut to the battle scene with the screen going black and then after some seconds, you're fighting with different music in the background. Having to go through all that process everytime can be annoying. So I'm all for interactive music and MIDI's seem to be the best way to go. Not that I don't want orchestral music in my videogames. If it's done right, I'm all for it.
  20. Sonic And The Secret Rings

    If you happen to have a wife (or a demanding girlfriend)... you'll understand that a man cannot sh*t or do anything without following the Wife-O-Meter tactic. Unless you want an earful of blahblahblahblahblahs and yada-yada-yadas. Nobody wants that.
  21. Sonic And The Secret Rings

    Same here... however, the DS was also a factor in getting me interested in games again. Hotel Dusk provides me that same "Shadowgate-ish" feeling from back in the days. Cool stuff.
  22. Yeah, well... don't say you don't expect that from any other politician. That's politics for ya!
  23. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, isn't directly backing Thompson measures, he did however signed legislation to outlaw the sale to teenagers of electronic games featuring reckless mayhem and explicit sexuality. Hillary Clinton is on the same boat on that. As well as many other politicos. So it isn't just Jack Thompson... I know many like to paint him as our main nemesis... but to me and many others, he's just a moron with little power or influence.
  24. Set Nintendo Europe website as you home page.

    Well that's nice. It's a good idea to keep users interested in the site. Maybe N-europe will do something similar and give away Wii games (wink-wink)
  25. Spider-Man 3

    I don't think a comic book fan would feel silly wearing Spider Man pj's and swingin' the Wiimote like a lunatic. They are known to have no shame.
