Super Paper Mario has Big BUG

September 20, 2007

Europeans all over Europe are complaining about their Paper Mario games. Somewhere around Chapter 2-2 if you talk to Mimi twice without getting a key the game will freeze. But there is a way to combat this, switch your system language to German and get through that part then switch it back to English. Or just don’t talk to Mimi twice. Nintendo says that if you got past Chapter 2-2 then you are safe. Nintendo is planning a replacement program that they will talk about later on their website.

Possible Disaster Day of Crisis game Information

September 18, 2007

Some websites claim that they know the base storyline of Disaster Day of Crisis.  The rumor is that a terrorist group uses some natural disasters as a window to attack the United States.  It is up to you, the protagonist an ex-cop to save the day and dodge the natural disasters in order to stop the terrorists.  If this is true then I am excited, it sounds like an interesting story and game.  Look forward to getting this possible AAA title in Q1 or Q2 of 2008.

Metroid Prime 3 slips to 2nd place

September 9, 2007

A few days ago I reported that Metroid Prime 3 has reached top overall game presently on GameSpot.  But today, that title was ripped away and BioShock for the computer stole it’s place.  Perhaps Metroid fans will rebel by looking up Metroid on GameSpot.

IGN says “possibility” of Wii hard drive and headset

September 8, 2007

IGN has said that there is a possibility that Nintendo could be making a Wii hard drive or head set.  This would mean that demos for upcoming games could be downloaded and people could communicate in online battle in games like MOH:2 and BWII.  Exciting possibilities.

Spaceworld discussion, may be coming back.

Reggie news promised for September

Editorial involving headset coming soon, next week most likely

Editorial on hard drive possibly coming

Sept. speculation surprise is unknown

There are a few games that are going to be announced. “Mature (not rated)” title that was looking for a publisher has gotten a publisher. Dark title, spooky

Brawl boxart floating around – Nintendo may have distributed as a placeholder for now. Not on Nintendo press site

More Metroid Prime 3: Corruption advertising discussion. Advertising goal is to get things out to the casual gamer

Street Fighter VC sales are unknown. Sales are “pretty good”. Everyone waiting for Super Street Fighter

Future of Resident Evil after Umbrella Chronicles. Hopefully franchise will continue on Wii as well. Matt unsure, Bozon thinks there will be another RE4 style game.

RE5 cannot be isn’t coming to Wii. It could be done with a lot of time and effort, but most likely won’t happen.

Third party Wii support talk. Devs jumping on board. Spooky game mentioned once more.

Rayman Raving Rabbids success due to game being good, or that it as a launch title. Sequel is funnier than first. Most of the games will be improved from the first title. Shooting mode will be discussed in a couple weeks. Says should be good, but perhaps not as well as the first.

Embargos are a “necessary evil”. Rockstar/Manhunt 2 embargo discussed. Euro Vs. US press discussed.

More Western devs on the VC definitely going to happen. Factor 5 games may be coming soon.

Factor 5 discussion. Julian Eggebrecht is into Wii. Julian says that they would love to work on the Wii. If the opportunity came up they would do it in a heartbeat. Not against working with Nintendo on a title. Matt would love to see them do Pilotwings. Another Rogue Squadron is something Factor 5 would love to do. Pehaps a compilation, perhaps a new game. Start a petition if you want it this to happen.

Medal of Honor: Heroes 2. Matt not a fan of split screen. No split screen in MoH:H2.

Konami talk. Some kind of Castlevania change goin on, platform unknown.

Devs may always feel that the PS3, 360 are better platforms to express their ideas. On the other hand, there will be other developers that will like working on the Wii better.

DS is the system that changed Nintendo.

Third parties excelling at Wii – Capcom. Exclusive review coming. Factor 5 would be a great dev for Wii.

Matt, Bozon would market Zack and Wiki by drawing parallels to game mascots like Mario and Sonic. Wii demo disc for a demo would be great, in-store demo kiosk would help to. Marketing will be tough due to title, character design, and gameplay.

Metroid Prime 3 is really awesome

September 7, 2007

A few days ago I got Metroid Prime 3. I love it, the controls revolutionize first person shooters. But graphics don’t push the Wii to the limits but they are very nice, they have a nicer look than many PS3 and Xbox 360 games odviously they can’t compete with Halo 3 or Killzone 2.  Other games I am excited about are Battalion Wars 2, Super Mario Galaxy and Smash Bros Brawl.  In a few weeks I will have beaten the game, and will post a review on NintenPro.
