it looked like this! Junkboy did a nice mock up of Bayonetta if it was an arcade shmup. That’s shoot-em-up for the uneducated. Pew pew pew!

Street Fighter The Movie…..THE VIDEOGAME EDITION

March 2, 2010 by

I cant believe something like this was even made….. Well I am not surprised. Its Capcom.  King of milking on just about anything without dignity. How desperate were capcom to make a game of a already bad movie? Well TBH, the movie was funny but for all the wrong reasons.  I was only aware of the games exsistance from InecomCompany’s game video:

In all fairness, the game does seems to carry the funny bad side from the motion picture.  I just crack myself on how lazy the graphic animation was done. chun li’s victory dance is just…….wonderful.

Bullseye!

March 1, 2010 by

Destructoid’s Jim Sterling recently wrote a piece on why Deadly Premonition is better than Heavy Rain. This snippet sums up it up nicely, and for once I can’t argue.

“Twenty dollars for a twenty hour game full of hilarity, versus sixty dollars for a six hour game full of Quantic Dream creaming its jeans over how clever it is. You do the math! Actually, no, I’ll do the math for you because you’re probably a PS3 fanboy and hence a fucking idiot. The math is that Deadly Premonition is better and that you’re a cunt. That is the math.”

I salute you sir.

Nintendo of Europe: Bringing the goods……later.

February 25, 2010 by

So the Nintendo Media Summit for Europe has been and gone and what did we learn from it?

DSi XL the most pointless idea since umm someone did something really pointless is out on the 5th of March.

Monster Hunter Tri is out April 23rd with FREE Online play, good stuff.

Sin and Punishment 2 is out May 7th.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 will be reaching out shores on the 11th of June.

Metroid: Other M hasn’t got a date yet, but it’ll be out around the 3rd quarter of this year.

Still no actual release date for No More Heroes 2 which is fucking annoying, still we know it’s out around the end of April, not too long now.

One thing that’s bothering me a bit though, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a big title for Nintendo, so would a world wide release be that bad? Final Fantasy: XIII is coming out the SAME date in America, Europe and Australia. I doubt there’s gonna be a lot of voice work needed for Galaxy 2, unless Yoshi has more lines then just “Yoshi” and it needs to be translated into different languages.

The same thing was done with Resident Evil 5, it was released in America, Europe and Japan at the same time, apart from Australia who get shit on worse then we do, sometimes.

Now it’s easy for me to bitch about stuff like this, of course the Publishers have there side of the story to, here’s two links that give a little bit of a better insight as to why some games take so long to be released in other regions:

These are great reads as it gives you a better understanding….and yet I look at a game like Final Fantasy: XIII with its world wide simultaneous release date and think, “Pfft” to the above links.

Fishing Hero. Make it happen.

February 25, 2010 by

In Deadly Premonition, you play a homicide detective. After killing hordes of creepy zombies and muttering “nice!” or “yes!”, what can you do to unwind? Go fishing of course!

Hype alert.

SNK have announced The King of Fighters EX EYE EYE EYE. That’s thirteen.

I recently bought KOF EX EYE EYE (twelve) despite it’s poor reviews because I was bored at work. So, no story. No boss. Ultra laggy online play…why am I still excited for KOF 13? The sad fact is that I’m one of those SNK loyalists. Ugh. Some work just landed on my desk. Literally.

Laterz!

It’s what you’re best at…..

February 25, 2010 by

So today was Nintendo of America’s Media Summit, and they announced a whole bunch of shit. The only thing of note was the release date for Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M……in America Land. This could mean that the PAL release dates are to be calculated by using this formula:

Number of people working on the title x Number of shit breaks each male within the age group of 18-34 took whilst working on the game + The amount of times someone said “Hmmm needs more waggle” = Amount of days we’ll have to wait after the American release date, before we get the game.

Of course Nintendo of Europe could pretty much shit all over that long-winded “joke” I just made, later on today when the European summit takes place. Then again they may not, meaning my joke is genius….hmm I dunno which I want more to be honest.

Anyway here’s a screen shot from Metroid: Other M and as we can see, Team Ninja are sticking to what their best at:

Till next time…

To infinity…..

February 24, 2010 by

Question, how does one top Super Mario Galaxy?

Answer:

Just to confirm, the game WILL have an orchestrated sound track! POW
