This new developer’s diary for Mass Effect 2 makes the game look pretty awesome (there are some minor spoilers, so beware). I like how I can just push people out of windows if they don’t answer my questions how I want them to be answered. Which is what I do in real life. What it didn’t really address was the A.I., I really hope my A.I. teammates aren’t completely retarded while in combat, because that was the one thing that really pissed me off while playing the first.
Atlus announced they’ll be brining the DS action RPG Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier to North America. And each one comes packed with more then just giant robot fighting action, you also get the CD soundtrack! The game comes out April 28th with an MSRP of $34.99.
The good news: Atlus recently announced that every copy of their upcoming DS title Legacy of Ys: Books I & II will contain a soundtrack, with both the game and soundtrack packed into a collectible box. The bad: the game is delayed for a couple of weeks, to February 24th. I don’t know anymore, Atlus, all these up’s and down’s…I just don’t know if I can keep doing this.
THE BATTLE FOR THE DIGITAL WORLD CONTINUES IN MEGA MAN STAR FORCE 3 FOR NINTENDO DS

Now you can easily find your way through the world of Fallout 3, with the help of Google Maps! I don’t know what I’d do without you and your maps, Google. I’d probably never find the Republic of Dave, that’s what.
So, it looks like a LOT of people decided to pick up Castle Crashers. Which is good, the game is totally awesome. Apparently, it’s sold about 78,545 units in 3 days, breaking Arcade sales records (at least according to vgchartz).
Additionally, a post on the Castle Crashers developer’s blog addresses the bugs some users are experiencing with online play and save files:
For those of you who are experiencing online issues, saving issues, etc I want to assure you that we are all very hard at work at getting an update to the game out as fast as we can. I am gathering all of the emails, forum posts, etc, etc for all of the issues that have been reported. As soon as I get them organized I will try to post them on here so everyone can see what we’re going to fix for the update. Again if you have any issues you want to discuss with us please email them to games[at]thebehemoth[dot]com and try to put a relevant subject line on there so I can sort through them easier.
I haven’t really had any problems, well, except the one time I tried to join a random game and my Xbox froze. Besides that though, every thing has been working fine. So, some good news, some not so good news (but they’re working to make it good news) from The Behemoth. Make sure you email them any bugs you’re experiencing.
I was trying to figure out where to find some random pet in Castle Crashers the other day and stumbled upon a forum post about the in game music. There were various links to the files so I decided to host them here as well since I really like the music in the game. They’re named based on the game area.

I don’t know what to say really, I mean cybernetic Norse gods seem pretty radical, and it’s developed by Silicon Knights, but for some reason I just haven’t been anticipating the game that much. However, with the demo now coming out my opinion might change, I’m definitely going to check it out.

I know this news is like a week late, but it’s too important not to post something. Blizzard finally announced Diablo III last week at their 2008 Worldwide Invitational in Paris. Sure, it only took, what eight years, but that doesn’t matter. In fact, I kind of like the fact that Blizzard didn’t just pump out sequels one right after another like other game companies sometimes do. There’s something about waiting for a game to come out that’s ultimately better then getting your hands on it.
Diablo III looks like it’s coming along very nicely. They’ve already announce two (of five) classes, have a cinematic trailer, and a 20 minute game play trailer (you can see both at the official website). The graphics look amazing and the hot bar and potion changes seem great.
