Metal Slug 7 for DS looks Hard as…Metal…

Many people (hardcore people) hail Metal Slug as the holy grail of 2d shoot em up gaming. And they might be right, the series has been a hit for a while now, giving Mega Man and Contra a good run for their money. The next installation is coming to the DS, and as shown in the trailer below, will be out 11/18/08. The trailer highlights some gameplay, all on the upper screen, but not that Metal Slug would need the touch screen though.  Read More →

Secret Files: Tunguska

There’s something new for owners of the DS and the Wii.  “Secret Files: Tunguska” offers a point-and-click adventure game for fans of the old school.  I’m surprised that there aren’t more point-and-click games for these consoles since they are particularly suited for the genre.  Regardless, this looks decent.  The story revolves around solving the mystery of the Tunguska Incident.  The good news is that DS users don’t...

Sid Meier’s Civilization: Revolution

This new addition to the Civilization series will be released on July 8th.  It will take the series in a radical new direction though.  This version was built specifically for handhelds and consoles.  Gameplay is shorter with faster gameplay options overall.  This should make it perfect for quick multiplayer games or for killing some time while you’re out.   If you’re interested in trying your hand at the Civilization series or if you’re...

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia trailer

Gametrailers has put up the debut trailer of the latest Castlevania game, titled Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. After viewing it, I’m lefting asking this: “Konami, when will you do something new with Castlevania?” Ever since Sympthony of the Night, which is among my favorite games of all time, they’ve just been reusing that same formula with little to no tweaking. It feels like they’re just milking these games for all their worth... 

FF4 DS, “Cecil’s Journey” Trailer

I’m one of the people who absolutely eats up all the new envisionings of the classic Final Fantasy games, and this remake of FF4 is no exception. This Trailer showcases the English voices for the first time from Cecil, Kain, Rosa, Palom, Porom, and perhaps the elder of Mysidia. From what you can hear in the Trailer, I really dig the voices for Cecil, Kain, and the Elder. Rosa is a bit meh, but she has one line…  Read More →
