  • News Dead Space Prequel Close To Finished

    Space blaster comes with the good and bad

    At about 80 percent finished, Dead Space: Extraction is getting to the point of no return as far as features and design goes. So what's good?

  • News Bethesda Has "Really Big" Plans For Wii

    Fallout 3 and Oblivion devs hard at work on new title.

    One can hardly argue that a plethora of developers have given "serious" support to the Wii since launch.

    Burly musclemen break through walls in speedos. You read that right.

    Here's one to skyrocket to the top of your most-wanted WiiWare games. We don't know much about Muscle March other than it was announced today, it's from Namco, and it's a Japan-exclusive WiiWare title (for the time being). And it's weird. Oh, and there's an inexplicable polar bear...

  • News Some Red Steel 2 Sword Worries Squashed

    Cut people up wherever you please!

    Ubisoft? They listen to their fans, they say. And a big thing people whined and moaned about in Red Steel was how the katana worked.

  • News Watch Contra ReBirth In Action

Speaking of which, here's a YouTube video of..

  • News Contra ReBirth Announced, Approaching

    New WiiWare title set to hit Japan...next week?

    What's old is new again. Again. Capcom kick-started the whole retro-sequel shenanigans last year with the stellar Mega Man 9, and Konami tried it's hand with the awkwardly-capitalized and underwhelming Gradius ReBirth too. Looks like Konami is going to be taking another stab at a retro revival, wheeling out the 16-bit style Contra ReBirth. I don't..
