News: Space Invaders Get Even - Stage Pack Details

Space Invaders Get Even - Stage Pack Details

Space Invaders Get Even is about to give the phrase "sold separately" a whole new meaning. We announced in our last Space Invaders Get Even news article that, while the game would only cost you 500 Wii Points, it would only buy you the basic game package with additional game content made available at an extra cost. Taito has just released more information to help clear up any questions regarding this additional downloadable content.

The main game package, aptly named the Starter Pack, will cost you 500 Wii Points and will feature the first level of the game along with the basic UFO. There will then be three additio..

News: Mega Man 9 - Flicker Included!

Mega Man 9 - Flicker Included!

Capcom seems to be taking this trip down memory lane with their upcoming WiiWare Mega Man 9 game quite seriously. Not only will the game have 8-bit sound effects and visuals, but now Capcom is saying that this new Mega Man title will also have the same flicker that plagued many a game during the 8-bit era. About the only thing left for Capcom to do would be to require the player to jiggle the Wii Remote much the same way NES carts had to be jiggled to get the games to boot up on the loose contacts inside the NES cartridge slot. (We hope they don't take it quite that far, however)

Space Invaders Get Even To Come With Bargain Price Tag

It seems that there's more good news for Space Invaders fans inside the newest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu. According to several scans from the magazine, Space Invaders Get Even will only cost a paltry 500 Wii Points when it hits the WiiWare service. Of course there could be a catch to that. The magazine also confirms that there will be downloadable stages available that could cost you additional Wii Points. Despite this minor catch, 500 Wii Points is still a great deal for the basic game.

In another fun twist for classic shooter fans, gamers will also have the option of pl..
