Last time we saw the trailer for Metroid Other M, we just saw prerendered shots. no inclination how the gameplay will work. This time, they made sure you got it when you watch it straight through. (more…)


What will Wii stand for now?

Ever since the current generation of consoles broke out it 2005, I held out on the Xbox360 since I wanted to see how the then new PS3 and Wii will stack against. Then Wii came out and it turned out a great system. It proved that graphics isn’t everything and gaming always prevails over it. How did it come out in the Philippines after 5 years? (more…)

Super FamiCom Controller for the Wii

Why can’t we get a controller like this one? Nintendo released a Wii version of our Nintendo’s 16 bit gamepad. I wonder if we will ever find the same love here in our country.

Anyway, you can see or read (if you can read Japanese) more about this on Inside Games.

Currently Playing: Super Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii)

Nintendo has been hyping their exclusive fighter for some time now. Especially with Konami’s Metal Gear hero, Snake and Sega’s famous mascot, Sonic. A lot of Nintedo games are excited to get their hands on SSBB, it was a bit hard to relate since I haven’t played any version until this one. What does this appeal to me? Why was I excited? Fortunately I have a Wii and I can rent and borrow games this time around. It makes gaming a lot easier and cheaper. Anyway, I was excited especially with Snake on board and it would be nice to see Mario kicking Snake out of the arena.


Currently Playing: NiGHTS: Journey Into Dreams (Wii)

Nights Journey Into Dreams

I was excited to hear about NiGHTs Journey Into Dreams ever since it was announced, but I did worry about its timing because the announcement did come when most of Sega’s games are not up to par with what they usually do. I had the chance to play the original NiGHTs into Dreams on the Sega Saturn, it was the time I totally ignored the very successful PlayStation but it was a moment I enjoyed games that stood out that were unnoticed by the masses.


Currently Playing: No More Heroes (Wii)

No More Heroes

I had no idea what to expect when I heard about No More Heroes. This is a game that is supposed to be radical and extremely violent than what you are used to. It was a surprise that this Xbox360 title shifted to a less powerful Wii, but what attracted the developers was more of the unique control scheme. The trailers show a very unique look, almost similar to Killer 7 (GameCube) but not as dream like.


Currently Playing: MySims (Wii)

I was waiting for a long time to get my hands on MySims. I was excited to see how EA would approach doing a chibi version of Sims. As I played it, I was disappointed and the same entertained with new approach, but is it worth it? (more…)

Console Wars 2007

So 2007 has been interesting. So many things has happened, and it’s been a roller coaster ride. Let’s start of with the hand held consoles. The DS has been very stable, nothing new to say but there are tons and tons of games coming out and there is no stopping it. Is it beating out the PSP? Not really, for the past few months before the end of 2007, the PSP has been selling like crazy. From what I hear other countries are also having good sales with the PSP, but it seems like the games are not selling as much. So what’s with the PSP? It’s a multimedia power house. More adults will be more attracted with the movie features and MP3 capability, and now it even has Skype (Internet phone) to back it up. The PSP is selling because of it’s other features, it seems like gaming is just a bonus.


Currently Playing: SSX Blur (Wii)

It has been hard to play a game that I wasn’t familiar with, I have played SSX before on the Xbox, but I had trouble using the controls. It never felt user friendly to me, actually games like Tony Hawk and SSX never really caught up to me. But the Wii version intrigued me because I wanted to know how the game controls, now what do I think of this snow boarding game? If it came out on the Wii first, maybe I’ve been a fan a long time ago. (more…)

Currently Playing: Sonic & The Secret Rings (Wii)

Sonic is back and i do hope its for the better. I enjoyed the classic sonic and i had fun playing Sonic Adventures too but recently with the new games for the xbox360 & ps3, the franchise is getting a bit questionable. Maybe its time for another Nights (hint, hint)? Will this new Sonic for the Wii step up from the rest? (more…)
