Analyst says Chinatown Wars could head to the iPhone
Posted 9 years ago by Brian in DS, News | 0 comments
“We expect GTA will likely be ported to Apple’s iPhone platform, leveraging the device’s touch screen technology and accelerometer. Apple’s determination to layer gaming applications into the device’s consumer value proposition and growing installed base is likely sufficient motivation for a deal.” – Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey
Knowing that the iPhone would be more than capable of handling Chinatown Wars, the possibility certainly seems likely. Rockstar, however, has noted that the DS suits the game very well and have specifically mentioned the two screens.
de Blob producer: MotionPlus could make controls more complicated
Posted 9 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 0 comments
“I think if we had the MotionPlus to start out with, maybe the control scheme would have worked out a little bit differently. I think the temptation with having Wii MotionPlus would have been to push it more in a gestural control scheme. While it’s definitely intellectually stimulating from a development perspective to play with those ideas — and I think it does appeal to a set of gamers out there — I think the majority of people that play on the Wii want something very simple that they can just immediately get their heads around.” – Nick Hagger, de Blob producer
As far as the hardcore audience is concerned, I think there are quite a number of people out there who would support a somewhat complicated control set up if the end result was for the better. However, MotionPlus can make controls easier to understand in some ways. After all, it is an extension to increase the power that the Wii controller can produce.

Sheffield UK , 23rd September 2008 – Lexicon Entertainment, a leading publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment and leisure software for video game console systems and personal computers world-wide, is pleased to announce, in collaboration with CyberPlanet Interactive, the publishing of Offshore Tycoon for Nintendo DS and Wii.
In the past the most famous fishing and sea crop company namely “Offshore” was established by Thomas’s grandpa who was an expert in sea harvesting. After Thomas’s grandpa died in 1907, his family has inherited the Offshore Company from generation to generation. Thomas was the tenth to continue the well being of Offshore Company. His ambition was to drive the company worldwide and be known as the most famous sea harvester. But it was not as easy as he wished. He had to expand more branches to attract his customers around the world. Therefore, he started his ambition by setting up Offshore Company at Offshore City first. And now he is ready to show how cool he is in the sea world.
Offshore Tycoon is a casual time management simulator in which the player has to take control of harvesting equipment such as fishing trawlers, oil tankers and more. Every task has to be managed and completed quickly and efficiently in order to make money and in turn to progress.

Back in June, it was announced that Ubisoft would be publishing Tenchu IV in the North American market. The company has reconfirmed that information to IGN, but has also provided some release date details. Tenchu IV should be available in Europe and North America sometime in early 2009. While you’re waiting, check out an English trailer of the game.
Note: I haven’t posted the Guitar Hero interview because I do not have enough time. However, I believe the interview was only three or four minutes.
Mega Man 9
– Debate was going on about what score the graphics should get
– Matt thinks the graphics are outdated and kind of ugly, but it doesn’t affect the gameplay
– Craig/Bozon say it’s not a bad looking game, just a step back in technology
– Daemon doesn’t think the graphics are bad either
– Graphics score given was a 3
– In the swing of things, the whole breakdown doesn’t affect the scores as much as people think they do
– Talk about how cool the Mega Man 9 press kit is
Wario Land: Shake It!
– 8.4 review score
– Doesn’t run in true widescreen, Matt feels its almost a deal-breaker for him these days
– Still a quality product, controls are responsive
– Level design is great, a lot of variety
– Backdrops change a lot too, reminds Matt of the games he grew up with playing and loved
– Doesn’t have many gimmicks other
– You know where to go, you just have to figure out how to get there
– Bozon doesn’t like some of the backgrounds – such a small amount of parallax and foreground layers
– Can complete the stages in about 5 hours but you can keep (and will want to) come back to the stages
– Matt highly recommends the game, would pay $50 for it
