Warning about Castlevania, there is no save. I got to the 5th level and stopped playing. When I started it up again I had to start from the beginning. Be prepared to finish it in one sitting.

No save feature? That sucks. I wonder how long the game is then.

I think what our antipodean associate is saying is that the Italian ladies shout "It's a sausage", cunningly implying that a sausage appears in form to be a male genital, and that the ladies are shouting out for intercourse, or perhaps merely a view of the protagonist's penis.

RPG Maker for DS.  If this has wifi support and is released in the west I can see this community making some bad-ass RPGs.

Naughty Dog throws some love the Wii's way, says there's a lot of closet Wii owners

A portion of a G4 interview with Evan Wells, co-president of Naughty Dog...

G4: Have you been thinking about motion control? Do you think it's going to resonate with the PlayStation audience? Is it right for the genre that you're interested in?

EW: I think right for the genre that we're in? We really don't have any interest in using the motion control to do a third-person action game. If we were going to make a motion controller game, I think we'd want to tackle it from the bottom up and make sure that we were designing the game around the motion control, the way the best Wii games are designed. I'm not a Wii hater at all, in fact, it's probably one of my most played consoles in the house. I have a 3-year old son which might account for some of that [laughs], but I think Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are some of the best experiences of this generation, honestly. They're immensely playable and competitive, and just great fun with a group of people in the same room. Yeah, I think the PlayStation audience is totally for it, in fact, I bet you there are lot of closet Wii owners in the PlayStation community. If there is some really good software for that motion controller, I think it can be a big, big success.

Full interview here

RUMOR - More assets from Factor 5's canned Pilotwings game

I don't believe it. These models look nothing like previous Pilotwings games. Then again, maybe that's why it was canned?

I want Pilotwings Wii to use Mii characters, and have the overall look of Wii Sports Resort. Just take that setting/characters, and make a full Pilotwings game out of it, Nintendo! I don't care if you re-use assets. Just make it happen!

That was posted in GAF about a month ago. Some say its fake. But we've already seen assets from their cancelled flight game. Check the factor 5 thread.

I wonder if me, vader and GG could take you simultaneously on a no holds barred match. Are you big?

While I am triangle chocking you, Vader and GG might soccer kick my face. Never go to the ground against multiple opponents.

So no, then. Nyaa

Castlevania Rebirth is FANTASTIC! It has the old school Castlevania feel, the controls are spot on, even the jumping is great (which you can turn back to crappy NES mode if you are a purist). The best part is all the secrets. There are hidden paths in every level, some require keys to enter, some you just find by exploring. These paths take you on totally different locations some have minibosses, greatly adds to the replay value. Belmont has this charged whip that he can find which lets your whip shoot fire balls for a limited time. The graphics are beautiful, for once the enemies look different. I have been looking at the SOTN art style for so long that it is great to see medusa heads look different for once. This is how you do an old school game, this is like Mega Man 9, great new old school game.

So you buy this and not Lost Winds 2? Grrrrrrrrrrrr

How long is this game? Contra Rebirth was short, 5 stages short.

The Magic Obelisk Review: Come for the Puzzles, Stay for the Charm

It’s as if the Puzzle Platformer genre never existed before WiiWare. Anyone crazy about the genre will find WiiWare to be godsend, with yet another Puzzle Platformer released on Nintendo’s online game service. The Magic Obelisk, like countless other WiiWare titles falls into the genre, and I couldn’t be happier.

I don’t understand why Game Arts decided to change the games name during localization. The games original title was “Shadow Walker,” which tells much more about the game than “The Magic Obelisk.” Perhaps they were trying to be vague.

Lukus and Popo, Walking on Shadows

Lukus and Popo, Walking on Shadows

The game tells the story of a spirit named Lukus, who is so allergic to sunlight that if he stays in it for too long, he will become a tree. To help him in his adventures is his fairy-ish friend Popo, who helps make shadows for him to walk through using Magic Obelisks. Some Obelisks don’t just cast shadows. Light Obelisks cast harsh sunlight, to give life to withering plants. Wind Obelisks let Lukus float. Ice Obelisks cast ice, freezing enemies, and letting Lukus skate about like Brian Boitano.

The concept is simple enough, and one I don’t recall ever seeing. Many puzzle platformers run together, and seeing a new concept pulled off well is refreshing. The game is controlled with the sideways WiiRemote, and controls easy enough. Pressing 1 makes Lukus follow you, which doesn’t always work as well as you’d like it to. Even when you’ve made a safe path for him, he is sometimes squeamish and goes in a completely different direction.

Figure Skating I can get behind

Figure Skating I can get behind

It’s easy enough in the beginning; there isn’t much in the way of difficulty when all you have to worry about is make shadows for Lukus to walk through. As the game progresses, you’ll find that in order to reach your destination, you must help others along your way, adding a good bit of variety to what unfortunately becomes a rather drab adventure by the time you reach Chapter 10.

Despite having an original concept, the games graphics are easily the high point. It’s as if Wind Waker and Paper Mario had a Puzzle Platforming Baby. Cell shaded meets storybook graphics. I sincerely hope Game Arts chooses this kind of art direction with their future endeavors.

The Awesome

-Storybook + Cell Shaded Graphics

-Most original puzzle platforming concept since Lost Winds

-Challenging, at times annoyingly so

The Not So Awesome

-Unresponsive Lukus

-Feels a bit trite after ten levels

Verdict

The Magic Obelisk might not be on the same calibur as Lost Winds, but it’s still worth your time and money if you call yourself a puzzle platforming fan. Come for the puzzles, stay for the charm.

Score: 7/10

Yay! Thanks to Spirit's kindness I now have Castlevania Rebirth and like dvader says this game is FANTASTIC! The music isn't quite as good as other games and I don't like that picking up a different sub-item completely replaces the previous one the rest of the game is great. There looks to be a number of secret areas and alternate paths that increase replayability. Another great addition to the "Rebirth" games and a very good game for $10.

Contra rebirth was too short. Let me know.

Where are Steels Rabbids impressions?

I just played some 2 player NSMB. Some courses other people are never going to do. So what is my choice here? Forge ahead and let them die? Some parts require wall jumps which you cannot do when you are holding another character.

Nintendo said that their trail for the demo program would end sometime in January and then they'd evaluate the results.  From what I can tell it was extremely successful.  All the games demo'ed made it back into the top 20 downloads for at least two weeks except for poor NyxQuest.  

So now that it's a proven success it would only make sense to open up a wider demo program.  We can only hope anyway.  Nintendo doesn't necessarily follow common sense when it comes to online programs.
