November 30th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

Atlus has a teaser site up for their upcoming DS RPG Radiata Stories Radiant Historia.

A couple of the game’s tracks, which will be included in the bundled soundtrack CD are also available on the site if you click on the little CD icon in the upper right corner of the screen.

Radiant Historia will be in stores this February.

Get A Wii and Complete Game Library for ¥1,000,000

November 30th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

According to Japan’s Sankei News, retailer Enterking will be selling a New Year’s “fukubukuro” containing a Wii and (used copies of) every game that is currently out for it.

Fukubukuros are similar to grab bags. Retailers use them to clear out stock by bundling a bunch of inventory and selling it at a low price. However, unlike other fukubukuros, the contents of this Enterking one are already known.

The entire package is priced at ¥1,000,000 (roughly $12,000USD) and there’s only one available. Rather than just have it be “first come, first served,” if multiple people show interest in buying the bundle, a raffle will be held to determine the buyer.

As awesome as a 408-game Wii library sounds, would you really want a game collection comprised mostly of Japan’s equivalent of Ninjabread Man?

Mario Sports Mix Online Gameplay Video Shows Little Lag

November 30th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

Even though it wasn’t the newest Wii game to support online multiplayer, Super Smash Bros. Brawl left a bitter taste in the mouths of gamers looking to throwdown against people around the globe

Mario Sports Mix may not contain some miracle patch to make Brawl‘s online play better, but it will at least provide some decent non-lag-crippled Wi-Fi play.

Nintendo Boasts Big Black Friday Sales Numbers

November 29th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

1.5 million Nintendo systems were sold during the week leading up to Black Friday. According to a press release the company sent out, deal-hungry shoppers bought 900,000 DSes and 600,000 Wiis between Sunday, Nov. 21, and Saturday, Nov. 27.

Or, as Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime put it, “U.S. shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday.”

The Big N suggests the influx of new hardware bundles, like the Red Mario 25th Anniversary Wii pictured above, are likely the cause of the sales boom.

Warren Spector Is The Geek of the Week

November 29th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

As part of a challenge, artist Len Peralta set out to meet, chat with and create trading cards of 52 different geeks of all walks of life over the course of one year.

The producer of hits like System Shock, Deus Ex and soon to be  Epic Mickey (fingers crossed!), Warren Spector, is this week’s geek. According to Peralta’s friends, Spector was genuinely interested in becoming a part of the challege.

The two were able to set aside some time and get an interview going, which can be heard at the Geek A Week site.

Conduit 2’s Intro Has Conduits… and A Doomed Humanity

November 29th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

SEGA put out the opening cinematic for Conduit 2 (apparently they dropped the “The” from the title after the first game).

I never got around to playing the first one, so I have no idea as to what’s going on in this video. All I know is that All-Seeing Eye seems to be a direct descendant of Knight Rider‘s KITT.

SEGA also put up a Flickr gallery full of screens and promo materials.

This Week in Games: “Of Epic Dawns and Golden Mickeys” Edition

November 28th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

There isn’t a whole lot coming out this week, but what this week lacks in quantity, it makes up for it with quality. The highly-awaited Epic Mickey finally paints its way onto the Wii this Tuesday. In addition to the standard $50 edition, a Collector’s Edition will be out on the same day. It’ll cost you an extra $20, but you’ll get a mini Mickey figure, some decorative skins for your Wii and Wiimote and a behind-the-scene DVD.

The also-highly-awaited Golden Sun: Dark Dawn finally continues the story from where the first Golden Sun and The Lost Age left off. There’s no special edition here, but, come on, it’s a new Golden Sun after a seven year break.

GoldenEye 007 Free With Wii Bundles on Amazon

November 27th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

We’ve been pimping out Amazon quite a bit recently, but given the Black Friday-time deals, it’s hard not to. You be rest assured knowing that the modicum of poorly thought out gaming news posts will return when the rampant consumerism dies down.

The online mega-retailer’s video game deal of the day is a great starter kit for anyone who doesn’t have a Wii (or maybe just a person who loves buying more than one console. Who’s to say?). For the price of a standard Wii, Amazon is tossing in a free copy of the Gold Classic Controller version of GoldenEye 007.

The deal will only last as long as they have the items in stock, so hurry on over here to secure a bundle.

Super Monkey Ball 3DS Website Rolls Into Town

November 26th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

Another set of monkeys are set to make a return. The website for Super Monkey Ball 3DS has gone up, and while it’s still pretty bare, if you’re a fan of wallpapers and incomprehensible squiggles, you’ll probably find something to catch your interest.

November 26th, 2010 | Category: Uncategorized

If you’re like us cool kids and are doing your holiday shopping online, odds are good that you slept in this Black Friday. After all, who would want to wait out in the cold after gorging on Thanksgiving dinner?

Capcom is putting a bunch of stuff in their online store on sale to celebrate Black Friday and it’s cornily-named online counterpart Cyber Monday (who still uses the word “Cyber?”). Why deal with large crowds when you could save up to 50% on games, art books, figures, and arcade sticks?

A short list of what’s been discounted can be found here, but there are still more gems hidden throughout the store.
