Mario & Luigi 3 OST leak

Apparently the Japanese gamers on the Internents have sown their seed in the way of leaking and uploading Mario & Luigi 3's soundtrack. Big surprise: Yoko Shimomura returns as composer. I do like the boss theme, I must admit. Can't wait fo...

 
 
 

Why no Capcom/SNK fighters on DS?

A lot of people think fighters on handhelds are aberrations (and for a while, they were right), but why have there been no tries on the DS, when the system has probably the best chance of a handheld for such a game to succeed? The first co...

 
 
 
 

Oboro Muramasa Jpn boxart and promo trailer

Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Hopefully they won't tamper with the design for the US release this year. Also, Marvelous's Japanese website has a new trailer on their website for the game. Feast your eyes on this: I said wow.

 
 
 
 

Awesome MadWorld trailer is awesome

Sega's been releasing some fantastic trailers and has overall done a rather admirable job of marketing MadWorld, but this one takes the cake. While there's really no new gameplay footage, the great thing about this trailer is that Sega se...

 
 
 

New Mario & Luigi 3 trailer

At first I was sorta "meh" about a Mario & Luigi 3, because its humor aside I didn't care for Partners in Time. However, I gotta say that after watching that trailer I'm really excited for the third installment, and I think it could be pr...

 
 
 

Atlus USA schedule leak

GAF and Siliconera both confirm a leak in Atlus USA's release schedule, and consequently reveal that Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Endless Frontier is coming to the US. I'm really curious about Devil Summoner and Knights in the Nightmare too...

 
 
 

NVGR randomness (and Gundam)

I miss the forums .because now I have nowhere on Dtoid where I can comfortably shoot the shit. Anyway... how's everyone else coping? Going through withdrawals? Gone out and done anything cool? I have a routine checkup with the dentist tom...

 
 
 

Winter (aka, third-parties fail the Wii again)

Hardcore games aren't for a kid's console. This is effectively what every publisher told developer n-Space, who in 2007 was trying to find a publisher and a backer for a game they thought the Wii deserved. Winter At first one would immedi...

 
 
 

Real Shenmue QTE

Found this over on GAF... pretty much the most awesome thing I've ever seen, as a Shenmue fan. Not much else need be said, I think.

 
 
 

The situation with Nintendo

There, did that lighten your mood a bit? I can understand those who are upset and feel they were left out of the press conference, but you just gotta take a deep breath and remember the sky is not falling. Remember that Super Smash Bros. ...

 
 
 

The Conduit underwent a face-lift

The independent game from High Voltage Software that has Wii fans screaming in excitement has some new media released via IGN as well as a new interview with a new 30-second gameplay teaser. What's most impressive, however, is the degree o...

 
 
 

Mega Man 9 is only $10

GoNintendo got several tips from fan translations of the latest Famitsu, and they report the issue asserts MM9 will cost 1000 Wii Points. A full Mega Man game in the classic style, for only $10? The price is right if you ask me, but how...

 
 
 

Capcom: Mega Man 9 on WiiWare only

Ars Technica just got an e-mail from Capcom in response to their article asserting MM9 would come out for WiiWare, XBLA, and PSN. "Capcom pinged us to let us know that the game is currently slated "for WiiWare only" and that the informatio...

 
 
 

How are you doing in Etrian Odyssey 2?

I grabbed the game today (got the last copy at GameCrazy, too) and gosh, I already feel the game's enticing caress, like that of a damnable succubus. It took me over an hour to decide on a starting party (=p) what with synergy, name, and p...

 
 
 

Mega Man 9 on WiiWare!

Through some Internet Matlockery, it would appear Mega Man 9 will be coming to WiiWare, as it has an article in the upcoming Nintendo Power issue. Credit to Rockman Perfect Memories for my source. No word on whether it's exclusive or not, ...

 
 
 

OverClocked ReMix

Yeah, I know this site was covered by Dale (I think) before, but I wanted to take the time to give the awesome video game audio remix site Overclocked ReMix another pop, and give them the due they so deserve. Overclocked ReMix--aka, OCRemi...

 
 
 

2008- The year third-parties jumped on Wii?

There's been a lot of discussion on the state of third-parties and the Wii (as you can tell by my blog), but I'm starting to see things develop, and they appear to mirror the exact same thing Japanese third-parties did with the DS. You know...

 
 
 

DS Games That Need to Come to the US

Ignoring the obvious Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! and Jump! fighters, there are several games that I really think deserve to come to the US. There are some that look very cool and possibly awesome games, but just aren't chosen to make the trip ov...

 
 
 

Birdmen and the Casual Fallacy

I was fortunate to find this thesis, and if you care at all for the video game industry I beseech you to read it. It is not something written by a zealous fan standing on a soapbox. It is not written by a video game analyst, journalist, or ...

 
 
 
 

Third-Parties and the Wii: An Analysis

With the recent Ubidays press event I got to thinking on the status quo of the dominating Wii, and how baffling it is the way 80% of the industry is either ignoring the market leader or putting zero effort into their games for the system....

 
 
 

So I finally got Zack & Wiki

I was at Wal-Mart the other day, and I saw Zack & Wiki on sale for $19. I figured it was about time I picked it up, so I got it. I've only had it for about two days, but I gotta say it's put a smile on my face. It's got a lot of personali...

 
 
 

Tales of Etrian Odyssey

Okay, so perhaps I went a little overboard in my enthusiasm for this contest. This was inspired by a rather memorable venture into the third Stratum. Maybe you'll be bored by it; maybe you'll even like it. Hopefully my bland article title (...
