The blood battle between Grand Theft Auto 4 and Ocarina of Time has been comparable to a ping-pong battle, except with some added controversy. Apparently, a review was removed/changed from the reviews aggregator Game Rankings, which caused Ocarina of Time to drop to the position of third best game ever. For now, however, the title is back on top, barely ahead of the two versions of GTA4. The war between Grand Theft Auto 4 and Ocarina of Time is sure to continue on for awhile. Then again, does it really matter considering they’re both great games?


New/renewed trademarks have popped up in Japan recently, two of which include Wario. Trademarks (whether they’re new or just being renewed is unknown) for both WarioWorld and WarioLand have been discovered, which may hint at new games for the DS, Wii, and perhaps, WiiWare. At one point, rumors of four Wario titles in development were made known from a somewhat reliable source and Nintendo does essentially have a third option to release a game because of WiiWare. The last “true” Wario game – Wario: Master of Disguise – was not exactly the best, so a good sequel would be more than deserved.


While Band Brothers DX seems like it will be a Japanese exclusive for now, it may be worth importing if you’re a strong supporter of Wi-Fi. When the game launches in June, a Speaker Channel will be up for download which will allow music from the DS game to be amplified from your television (I believe Band Brothers is one of the first games to do this.) Moreover, musical pieces that you create will be able to be uploaded to a server for other players to download. So, if you’re interested in music and feature support, this could be the game for you!

One fan has taken the liberty of placing Mario and his brother in a typical Las Vegas setting. Mario must be taking a day off from saving the Mushroom Kingdom, as he has a content grin on his face, a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, and has his chest hair exposed. Certainly not the clean-cut Mario we’re all accustomed to!

Come on, Mario! Get that thing under control!



Project H.A.M.M.E.R. was one of the first titles reveiled for the Nintendo Wii, but soon fell into the dark depths of the Nintendo vaults. Development on the game eventually ceased and Nintendo placed the title on “indefinite hold.” However, in the July issue of NGamer, the magazine claims “… the head of a Nintendo subsidiary says he and his team are still working on it. Believe us, we’ll be the first to tell you when H.A.M.M.E.R’s back on track.”

Obviously, I’m hoping that this game is still alive. We didn’t get the chance to see too much of Project H.A.M.M.E.R., but it did seem promising.

Brash Entertainment today announced the release of Space Chimps, a brand new action adventure videogame title. Based on the hotly anticipated CGI-animated Space Chimps film from the creator of Shrek, John H. Williams (Shrek and Shrek 2), Space Chimps the videogame combines the same colourful world and characters of the forthcoming film with a unique storyline that puts fans in the heart of the action with 11 levels of monkey fun and mayhem. Space Chimps the videogame will release alongside the film and will be marketed and distributed across Europe by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in August 2008.

Space Chimps is a hilarious new action adventure-comedy film that follows the exploits of mischievous young circus chimp, Ham (voiced by Andy Samburg) who happens to be the grandson of the first primate ever sent into space! As a publicity stunt, Ham is chosen to lead an exploratory mission into outer space to investigate a mysterious new planet. But when he and his crew crash-land in a bizarre and beautiful new world and find their lives in peril at the hands of the tyrannical King Zartog, Ham must step up to his dangerous mission to save his fellow space chimps, Titan (voiced by Patrick Warburton) and Luna (voiced by Cheryl Hines), and lead the emancipation of the imprisoned aliens and the planet.
