Executive Summary: Microsoft X10 (San Francisco)

•February 12, 2010 • Leave a Comment

This year more than ever, a post holiday release timeframe has become a significant period to release those titles trying to get an early jump to contend for Game of the Year honors and/or just to get a bigger piece of the annual sales pie.

So far we’ve seen the release of Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2 each solidifying their AAA status, while games like Splinter Cell: Conviction, Halo: Reach, Alan Wake and Final Fantasy XIII have the hype machine already revved up for their upcoming releases that are just around the corner.

This past week, Microsoft held X10 in San Francisco and along the way to promoting the aforementioned titles (most of which are exclusives), they also reminded us of games still coming down the road with the likes of Crackdown 2, Dead Rising 2 (with exclusive DLC entitled CASE ZERO), Fable III and Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing.

Not to be left out, soon to be released XBLA titles were also highlighted with the much talked about “Game Room” leading the charge, joined by Scrap Metal, Toy Soldiers and the anticipated re-release of Perfect Dark.  Sean C.

This week’s update is highlighted by a spattering of Sony exclusive demos, most importantly with the greatly anticipated (at least on my part) Heavy Rain for the PS3.  The PSP rounds out the demos with SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 and the Echochrome spinoff echoshift.

Other than that, there are a bunch of new dynamic themes featuring PSN exclusive titles Flower (celebrating it’s one year birthday), Trash Panic and Wipeout HD.  There also price drops and special offer galore with Burnout Paradise Complete Edition for $20, Valkyria Chronicles DLC pack  for $10, Trine for $10, and the much adored Patapon 2 for $15 (permanent).

As for Playstation Home, be sure to check out the newly re-skinned Singstar space in spirit of Valentines, along with the new Warhawk personal space and a SOCOM item giveaway at the Playstation Theatre.

So forget about your Valentine this weekend…spend some time where your heart really is….on video games (sad).  Sean C.

WiiWare Double-Bill Review: Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, Pokemon Rumble

•February 11, 2010 • Leave a Comment

This review is sort of a double-feature showcasing the chops of Nintendo’s Wii Shop channel, which up until this point I had only had minor experience with. By “minor” I mean I used it to hoard a bunch of best-loved and half-forgotten games from my childhood for easy access. Chances are that if you have a penchant for “older” games, the Wii Shop Channel is for you; after all, many of your classic favourites are probably Nintendo made, leftover from a time where Nintendo dominated the gaming scene. One of the games I’ll be discussing is from that generation, but not from a classic Nintendo console. The second is a more recent entry from the Wiiware section with a little more depth and ties to everyone’s favourite collectable monster fad.
