Anime Expo

– Tatsunoko vs. Capcom booth was there, a lot of people were playing it
– Naruto Clash of Revolution 3 at the convention – new trailer up – more of the same but still very cool and with Wi-Fi

Devil Survivor

– Atlus had a big booth for the game at the Anime convention
– Gave it an 8.7
– It’s awesome
– If you’re in to Shin Megami Tensei, you should pick it up

Treasure World

– Craig did a review last week
– Weird little collection game
– Sniffs out Wi-Fi signals
– Set up the system, close it, then picks up Wi-Fi spots and turns it into a treasure
– Made a cool website, Facebook style, to show off your collection
– Not too much to the actual game which is why Craig gave it a 7.5
– Craig recommends it, very innovative

WiiWare/DSiWare updates

– DSiWare: ArtStyle: Base 10 – Touch all the numbers that add up to 10, Craig didn’t like it much when he played the Japanese version but will download it tonight
– WiiWare: Bit.Trip Core – Music based shooter in a way – Bozon thinks Bit.Trip Beat still better – also still fun – devs looking into leaderboards, might do it retroactively

Reader questions

– Matt hasn’t had time with the retail copy of Sky Crawlers (Japan) – Bozon wants to do import coverage
– TMNT: Smash-Up doesn’t look as bad as it appears in videos – actually looks pretty nice – sewer area looks cool, character models are good – Smash Bros. looks better
– Drift won’t really happen in Red Steel 2, also pointing at the screen a lot so could be recalibrating secretly – Not 1:1 either
– Matt a big sucker for frame rate in certain types of games
– Doesn’t look like the Wii will be seeing a Metal Gear game anytime soon but wouldn’t rule it out completely, maybe we’ll get an old game
– Have to write for several audiences in reviews which is why there are statements such as “If Wii is your only console…” – when you’re reviewing something it’s about context and comparing it to something else
– Official HD Wii hasn’t been announced, there’s been speculation, it’s common sense, Matt thinks it’s inevitable
– Animales de la Muerte hasn’t been scrapped but in some sort of werid state of purgatory – High Voltage didn’t know what to do with the game
– For WiiWare, Matt recommends starting with World of Goo, LostWinds, Tetris Party for WiiWare
– The Conduit vs. The Grinder in this stage of development – looks nicer, multiplayer ideas sound more ambitious – First impression of The Grinder is that it’s original, looks promising, already more superior than The Conduit, online mode will be much improved – More optimistic about The Grinder than they were for The Conduit
