  • News Lost in Shadow Documentary Sheds Light on the Game's Creation

    Our well of shadow puns is running dry

    It may have been pushed back until 2011 in North America, but Lost in Shadow is still looking like one of the Wii's brightest upcoming releases. This behind-the-scenes documentary is in keeping with the game's unique graphical style, projecting the game's development team as shadows rather than the usual...

  • News Samus Narrates a Trip Down Metroid Memory Lane

    Get your plot details in order before the next adventure

    Well, now that Nintendo has gone ahead and hired a voice actor for the traditionally silent Metroid: Other M star Samus Aran, we suppose it makes sense that they want to make the most of her talents. What better than to let the now-verbose heroine narrate a retrospective of her adventures with space jellyfish? Not only is it a nice summary of..

  • News Struggling With Your Rytmik Masterpiece? This Video Wants to Help

    Let Cinemax take you through the basics

    DSiWare music production tool Rytmik is surprisingly powerful for a portable package costing less than a tenner, but learning its intricacies can be a little daunting at first.

  • News See the New Pokemon Starters in Bright, Beautiful Motion

    Hamferno, Smugleaf and the other one in action

    We initially said the new starter Pokémon for the upcoming Black and White releases probably aren't the prettiest monsters we've ever seen, but in light of this first footage of them in battle we may have to chow down on our words. With fully animated monsters and new camera effects the battles are looking better than ever, though that's perhaps..

  • News Mark Ronson Mixes Legend of Zelda with New Video

    Spot the references in this one

    Mark Ronson's made a bit of a name for himself remixing and revamping other artists' tracks, so it's no surprise to see the video for his new track Circuit Breaker take inspiration from other sources. Nobody expected it to borrow so heavily from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, though. With a distinctive-looking overworld, green-capped hero and what looks..

  • News DS XL Promo Footage Shows Off Generous Proportions, Family-friendly Nature

    Fun for the entire family

    The DS XL - known as the DS LL in Japan - is something of a monster. Want proof? Check out this official promotional video, which has been released by Nintendo to advertise the impending Japanese launch of the console.

  • News Frank West Confirmed For Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

    Zombie killer channels Mega Man

    Looks like that leaked list of new Tatsunoko vs. Capcom characters is spot-on in at least one regard, as Capcom has revealed at the Tokyo Game Show that Frank West has been added to the Western and Japanese rerelease of the fighter. West made his first appearance in Capcom's Xbox 360 game Dead Rising, which later received a bland Wii port. His fighting moves seem to..

  • News Wii PlayOn Beta Begins

    Service allows you to watch Hulu, Netflix and Youtube content on your console.

    The Wii has a pretty poor track record when it comes to streaming media outside of Japan. No video rental services for us, no downloads, just the Nintendo Channel and its somewhat hokey delivery of promo videos. That is, unless you're the fiddly type, in which case you may have tried to get Orb up and running. Fiddly..

  • News Monster Hunter 3 Gets Seriously... Cute?!

    Claymation shows softer side of lethal Wyverns

    It may be one of the most anticipated hardcore releases for Wii this year, but Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~) isn't afraid to show its sillier side, with the latest video from Capcom introducing would-be Hunters to their new best friend - Chacha (yes, really.) The short claymation video shows the little acorn-headed Chacha exploring the world and hunting down..

    Get your eyes on the real-time opening for Ubi's new title.

    If you've read our exclusive hands-on preview of Red Steel 2, you'll know I came away very impressed by the game's cel-shaded graphics. Nothing beats the ability to watch them in action yourself though, and earlier today Ubisoft revealed the game's opening scene to the public. Until the fade-to-black this is all in-game footage, with the..

  • News Mecho Wars Confirmed For WiiWare and DSiWare Release

    Luc Bernard spills the beans in drunken video preview

    It's been a while since we heard from our old mate Luc Bernard but then he has been a pretty busy chap lately.

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