Oh dayyummmm!! Okami beat Twilight Princess for Overall Game of the Year!


12/7/06 11:10 pm - crynyd - Whoa Wii Wah Wii

Reports from the NPD group show that Nintendo was responsible for 55% of all hardware sales in November. Even better is that — and I'm sure this'd not be the case were the Wii in better supply — sales of the DS and GBA led the Wii in that time period.

Resistance to Wario Ware is not only futile. It's stupid. Watch (I'd embed it but GameVideos sucks).

Suda 51's "Heroes" is now called "No More Heroes." It also features the greatest story ever. See for yourself

Time is holding a vote for Gadget of the Year. The DS Lite had about a 40-point lead on the MacBook Pro yesterday, but all the Mac sites told their readers to go vote and now they're tied at 42% of the vote each. I think you know what you need to do.

11/9/06 11:00 am - ducttaperomance - EBA! It's in the game!

My Wii countdown says 9 days left, but my impatience says forever.

Yesterday, I got Elite Beat Agents. Though it has a bad track listing, you get so inveloped into the game that you really don't mind it. I mean, c'mon! The concept of the game is so absolutely amazing: helping your fellow man through the power of music and dance. As homosexual as that sounds, it's grade A fun. And I hate Game Informer for their review over this game. Yeah I know, I own the magazine, but that's merely for business purposes. Their video-gaming journalsim is a bit short from mediocre. I felt the circles were synchronized with the music. There were a few scatter ones but that adds the challenge to EBA in the latter stages.

"The bigger issue here, however, is that something always felt a little off when using the touch screen. I just don’t think this kind of touch interface is well suited to the rhythm game genre." - Game Informer

My response: It's probably because you suck at the game!

Anyway, if I could, I would give this game a 9/10.

Holy shit! Sony actually managed to run Lik-Sang out of buisness!

Apparently they are PROTECTING CUSTOMERS from buying incompatible region-specific hardware (even though Lik-Sang provides replacement parts to ensure compatibilily free-of-charge). This, coming from a company that recently boned over 400,000 people when they added malware to music cds. Nice.

Read the official release here.

Bad news for all the thousands of people who pre-ordered Wii's and PS3's from the site. All money will be refunded of course. But it's too late for many of these people to preorder elsewhere. I wonder if Play-Asia is next?

--------In Other (better) News---------

Game Informer ran a quick interview with Suda 51 which you can find here. He talks of Heroes, of course, and also mentions a second Wii game in development, as well as a Killer 7 sequel.

Standing In Line at the Crack of Dawn: Part 2 begins this Sunday. That's right kiddies, on Oct. 29 Toys 'R' Us begins taking preorders for the Wii.

The closest one to my apartment is a 20 - 30 minute drive from here, and I'll wanna be there early (if the EB/Gamestop lines were any indication), so I'll probably be waking up around 5:30. OH BOY!
