  • Frank West Confirmed In Tatsunoko VS Capcom

    Frank West, of Dead Rising fame, has been confirmed as a playable character in Tatsunoko VS Capcom. I’m sure he’ll hold his own. He’s covered wars, ya know.

  • Toys R Us Ad Shows $199 Wii Price Drop Coming Soon

    Looks like the Wii will also be getting a price cut, following Microsoft and Sony’s.

  • New Spyborgs Video

    Capcom has released a new video for Spyborgs, their upcoming beat ’em up for the Wii. The video features Bouncer and Stinger beating up all kinds of stuff. Spyborgs is Capcom’s hottest new video game thrill ride, combining an extraordinary sci-fi world with action-packed two-player co-op controls. In Spyborgs, gamers play as cybernetically enhanced superheroes…

  • No More Heroes 2 Gameplay Video

    Travis Touchdown is totally awesome. I love how the boss just throws the two girls at him.

  • Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Gameplay Trailer

    Capcom’s released a new Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles trailer for PAX. It looks pretty good and shooting zombies (or giant spiders) never really gets old. I like on-rails shooters, you don’t have to worry about walking around and going the wrong way, you get to focus on the important stuff, just shooting.

  • A Boy And His Blob Getting a Wii Remake

    I didn’t realize there was an A Boy And His Blob remake coming to the Wii (announced March 4), a game we previously did a Awesome Radical Retro Prospective for. The graphics look really nice, and I don’t have to remember what the different colored beans do anymore.

  • Muramasa: The Demon Blade Gets New Publisher, Release Date

    This morning XSEED announced it would no longer be publishing Muramasa: The Demon Blade in the U.S. I was a bit worried we’d never see it released here, maybe Vanillaware thought it was too hardcore for the U.S. Wii audience…which would suck because not only does the game look amazing, but I’d have a reason…

  • MotoGP for Wii Launches Next Week

    Yes, MotoGP for the Wii does indeed launch next week (Tuesday, March 24, 2009). This will be the first officially licensed MotoGP title ever for the Nintendo Wii platform. MotoGP turns the Wii remote into a virtual set of handlebars to deliver the definitive two-wheeled racing experience. The development team’s overriding aim is to deliver…

    This week’s Wii-kly update brings two new WiiWare games and one virtual console game: Zoda’s Revenge: Star Tropics II, Cue Sports – Pool Revolution, and Maboshi’s Arcade. Cue Sports and Maboshi Arcade are both WiiWare games, and Zoda’s Revenge is a port for the virtual console originally on the NES.

  • Dragon Quest X Coming to Wii

    Yesterday, at an event in Japan, Square Enix announced Dragon Quest X is coming to the Wii. The event was held to promote their March 28th release of Dragon Quest IX for the DS (side note: Dragon Quest IX is going to cost 5,980 yen there, or roughly $64.73, which is insane). I hope it…

  • Virtual Console Update – Cho Aniki

    So, Cho Aniki. It’s basically a shooting game, but replace spaceships with half naked guys. I’ll just take Wikipedia’s description: For various reasons, the popularity of the Cho Aniki games has endured since the series’ debut. Depending on which specific title one looks at, highlights include in-game music, innovative control schemes or sheer kitsch value.…

  • Virual Console Update – Super Mario RPG, Clu Clu Land

    Wow, this one came out of no where. This week’s Virtual Console update includes one of the most awesome, radical games in the universe, Super Mario RPG. Any one who doesn’t have this game should buy it immediately (or whenever they have some spare time). It is, in my opinion, the best Mario RPG game…
