Sunday, November 22nd, 2009 by Zach Potts

Title: Guitar Hero 5
Publisher/Developer: Activision/Vicarious Visions
Platforms: Wii, Playstation 3, Xbox 360
Release Date: 9/1/2009
Number of players: Single Player,4 player local, Up to 8 players online

Guitar Hero 5 brings yet another iteration of the music giant to gamers, and it’s got plenty of competition.

Review - ColorZ

Friday, September 25th, 2009 by Zach Potts


Title: ColorZ
Publisher/Developer: Exkee/Exkee
Platforms: WiiWare
Release Date: 09/7/2009
Number of players: 1-3 players locally

ColorZ, a new WiiWare game, is one of the simplest in concept that I have played recently, but by golly, it isn’t easy. It starts off simply enough, allowing you to control a single ship through a level while trying to avoid dissimilar colored enemies, but once you start controlling 2 and 3 ships, it gets crazy. Do you have what it takes to navigate through all the levels? Maybe, but it’ll take some practice.

Pretty cool stuff. That’ll be one interesting fighter.

Starting next week in the US, the Wii will officially go down from $249.99 to $199.99. There were lots of rumors going around and ads from a variety of companies, and at TGS, the announcement made it official.

This was definitely a move Nintendo needed to make to keep their competitive edge in the market, what with price drops from both Sony and Microsoft just recently.

LostWinds Sequel Confirmed

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009 by Zach Potts

A sequel to one of the best WiiWare games to date, LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, is set to one-up its predecessor with new puzzle elements, including the ability to change from summer to winter. This power will allow you to alter the environment, as well as your wind powers. Another new power at your disposal is the ability to create a cyclone, which can be used as a drill or to transport your character.

No news yet on price or release date, but it will still be exclusive to WiiWare.

The colors Reggie, the colors!

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009 by Zach Potts

After a bit of waiting, Nintendo is starting to release a few more color options to both Wii and DS fans. While there isn’t news of a black Wii coming to the US quite yet, Nintendo of America will be releasing black Wii remotes, nunchucks, and motion plus devices. Those things look super slick.

And on the DS side of things, there will be two more color choices for the recently launched DSi: pink and white. While DSiWare wasn’t super spectacular at the beginning, it is starting to shape up, and with the news of DSi-specific games coming, now may be the time to pick yours up.
