Nakago and Miyamoto used to share a bed on business trips

Tezuka: Devil World was released in October 1984…

Nakago: And Excitebike was released in November. As Excitebike was being developed in Tokyo, I went on a lot of business trips there together with Miyamoto-san and we'd often stay over in a hotel. That was right at the start of the bubble economy and there were times when it would be really hard to secure a hotel room. There were even times when we slept in the same bed.

Iwata: …What!? (laughs)

All: (laughter)

LOL

Please allow me to explain. It was a long night of work. We had gone out for Sake and Karaoke. Nothing happened, I swear. Please don't tell Robio!

The PS3 hosted 10 games that earned Metascores of 90 and above, including Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which was the top-rated game of the year at 96 percent. The PS3's median Metascore was 72.

The Xbox 360's 2009 library still did perform well on the rankings, with the highest number of "positively-rated" games. The console was home to 88 games that earned a Metacritic score of 75 percent or higher -- seven games were 90 or higher.

The top-rated game on Xbox 360 was Activision and Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which also released on PS3 and PC. The game earned a 94 on Xbox 360, and contributed to Xbox 360's median Metascore of 70.

The Wii, which released the most titles during the year with 362 games, was in last place in the rankings. The console's median Metascore for the year was 67, the lowest out of six platforms, and had just one game with a Metascore over 90: Nintendo and Retro Studios' Metroid Prime: Trilogy, a re-release of Metroid Prime games outfitted for Wii's motion controls.

While the console war rages on, the PC actually took the second spot on the power rankings behind the PS3. Metacritic scored 306 PC games, and seven were rated over 90. The platform's median Metascore was 72.5.

Holy blatant copy Batman, Dante's Inferno is GoW with a different coat of paint. Its shameless, everything is nearly identical. I knew the moves before looking at the move list cause I know the GoW combos, like hold triangle and you will knock enemies in the air to do an air combo. Everything is color coded the same way, the way you get health is done the same, the button mapping is practically the same. The only difference is that you get this cross attack which is a ranged attack.

Like most copies they are not as good as the original. The combat is ok but does not feel as fluid as GoW. The graphics are not that good, some of the models are almost last gensh, at least its 60 FPS. The story and setting are the only real differences here. The story seems like it will be told like most game stories, quick cutscenes with minimal dialogue. At least they copied one of the better games because of that it is still fun. There is one boss fight which was ok. You get to ride this big monster dude at the end, that was cool but again GoW is doing that now and it felt better in that game.

After playing GoW3s demo this game feels so far behind. It is exactly as I expected, this game will be the worst of the major action games to hit next year. This is classic EA, grab a license and copy an existing template to fit that license.

You got to hand it to EA though, although they're hacks, they're good at it like Dead Space.

But I think I agree with you on Dante's Inferno. Castlevania Lord of Shadow might be better and GoWIII's competition will not be those but Bayonetta.

When stores sell bunch of games for $19,99. 

From neogaf

That's when stores have a big bin of shovelware and each game has a big $19.99 price tag on it and another sticker covering up the original UPC. Even though they are a mix of games they all share the same UPC so they register as the same product.

Hey guys, been playing some demos lately. Here they are with a few impressions:

1. Bayonetta
Some didn't like it but I loved it. I think it's pretty artistic and Platinum games really went all out on it. Definitely a day one purchase for me. I never like DMC series but I'm liking this one. Maybe it's because Bayonetta looks hot, but that's not the only reason. The action is over the top and really amazing. That's why. And Bayonetta does look pretty hot!

2. Wolfenstein
This game is almost good but it falls short. Great ideas implemented poorly, or programmed poorly. Maybe the final retail version is better but from what I've played the framerates and hit detection is horrid. Also the AI is so stupid. But the game was still enjoyable. I'd pick it up at a bargain bin.

3. Brutal Legend
This was quite a surprise! I went into this game not expecting much but ended up loving it. Jack Black is hilarious and perfect as the main guy and the animation, level design, originality, and zaniness makes this game worth playing. I may not pay full price for it only because I hear it's a real short game. But with a price drop around $30-40, I'll definitely pick it up!

4. NFS Shift
Racing games have never been my thing by NFS Shift was pretty cool. I think out of all the racing games which features behind-the-wheel driving, Shift has done it the best. Love the effects and experience it brings. I may pick it up at a price drop though, like I said, racing isn't my thing but this was pretty cool.

5. MX vs ATV Reflex
The demo was crap. I really didn't like it. The graphics, framerates, racing, felt like I was playing a PS2 or XBOX game. Maybe it was just the level I was playing but it wasn't impressive. After being floored and blown away by how great Pure and Motorstorm are, MX vs ATV Reflex felt like it has tons of catching up to do.

I'm sure a lot of you guys played these but just though I share some impressions.

Holy blatant copy Batman, Dante's Inferno is GoW with a different coat of paint. Its shameless, everything is nearly identical. I knew the moves before looking at the move list cause I know the GoW combos, like hold triangle and you will knock enemies in the air to do an air combo. Everything is color coded the same way, the way you get health is done the same, the button mapping is practically the same. The only difference is that you get this cross attack which is a ranged attack.

Like most copies they are not as good as the original. The combat is ok but does not feel as fluid as GoW. The graphics are not that good, some of the models are almost last gensh, at least its 60 FPS. The story and setting are the only real differences here. The story seems like it will be told like most game stories, quick cutscenes with minimal dialogue. At least they copied one of the better games because of that it is still fun. There is one boss fight which was ok. You get to ride this big monster dude at the end, that was cool but again GoW is doing that now and it felt better in that game.

After playing GoW3s demo this game feels so far behind. It is exactly as I expected, this game will be the worst of the major action games to hit next year. This is classic EA, grab a license and copy an existing template to fit that license.

You got to hand it to EA though, although they're hacks, they're good at it like Dead Space.

But I think I agree with you on Dante's Inferno. Castlevania Lord of Shadow might be better and GoWIII's competition will not be those but Bayonetta.

This is not like Dead Space, Dead Space was its own game. Yeah it used RE4 like gameplay but it had different controls, different emphasis on combat and atmosphere. It had it's own identity. Dante feels like GoW in new skin.

So Spirit Tracks is really good.  I did enjoy PH as much as I trash it but I dont think I enjoyed it this much. ST shares some of the same ideas, especially the use of map writing to solve puzzles but I think ST has better puzzles. The 2nd dungeon is fantastic making new use of the boomerang which in involves fire and ice. Maybe the biggest difference is that the main dungeon in this game is awesome. In PH it was almost MGS like at times, very different for a Zelda game. Here it is more traditional, its like those dungeons where you have a partner, think WW. What is great is that each new section adds a totally new gameplay mechanic. Also it doesnt follow the use new item to get by formula, in these floors  you need to use everything you have.

Too top it all off the combat is fantastic. Most enemies require you to use items in conjunction with the sword to take them out. Heart containers are not abundant so the game actually had me use a potion, I havent used a potion in a Zelda game in a long time. The few bosses I have fought have been stellar so far.

It is still all very linear, I haven't done much of anything that feels like side quests. I have revisited some towns with my new items to find a hidden area with a treasure chest which usually results in some valueable item like a necklace (again think WW). I have yet to find where I can turn these items in for money.Train riding is rather boring, they try to add enemies and some evil trains but it just makes the trip more annoying.

Maybe I got over the shock of how different these Zelda games are with PH, I dont know, I just know that I am enjoying this game very much.
