New Line Up Released!
Northamptonshire, UK 5th March 2009

Fancy being a top darts player? Or would you prefer to match yourself up against the Pros? In this year’s PDC World Championship Darts 2009 game on Wii, you can do both! Either create your own male or female characters with your very own, barrel weights, flights, darts shirts and walk-ins or choose to move up the rankings by playing as (or against) one of 18 professional PDC players.

Will you play as ex-postman and five times World Championship winner, Raymond ‘The Man’ Van Barneveld or compete using the unique dart throwing style of Phil “The Power” Taylor, the sporting legend who has notched up an incredible 14 World Championship wins?


The special DSi will go on sale on May 30 in Japan. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days will also launch on the same day.

A Boy and His Blob details

Posted 11 years ago by in News, Wii | 8 Comments

– Ideas started after Contra 4 was completed
– Actually not a remake – “inspired by” the original
– Started from a pitch – Majesco wanted to breathe new life into it for a long time
– David Crane not directly involved
– There are “a good mix of blob transformations that should each be useful in their own context” – there are classic and new transformations
– Looks fully 2D but uses 3D for things like effects
– No waggle or IR in the game
– Looking into GameCube controller support
– Game has a lot of unlockables and secrets
– A lot of gameplay variety
– No multiplayer – perhaps for A Boy and His Blob 2
– Runs in 480p, 16:9
– Game is for everyone


Sonic and the Black Knight

– People have been complaining about the review, saying IGN is biased, etc.
– Not so hot – 3.9
– Matt says he gives bad Sonic games bad scores
– Just not a good game
– Can look at it as not a good Sonic game or not a good game in general (both are true)
– Doesn’t have any of the trademarks from the Sonic games
– Matt can’t remember a single loop in the game
– Always at a dead stop fighting enemies, stopped a lot
– Sword-play is just one move – mapped to waggle
– Basic game is running forward for a second, stopping for 30 seconds, fighting off enemies
– Secret Rings did have its issues but it was still a fun game
– By design they’re trying to slow you down
– Actually have to stop, walk up to a townspeople clumbsily to interact with villagers
– Don’t really collect rings so much either
– When you stop you realize how bad the controls are

We Ski and Snowboard

– Very mediocre game
– Pretty much the same game as last year, looked like the same game
– Added the ability to snowboard but have the same controls as skiing
– Does support the balance board
– Balance board controls work
– Nothing else to do in the game
– Everything is unlocked from the very beginning
– Nothing to entice you to move forward
– No goal or objective you’re working towards
– Visually not too bad
– Framerate chugs in multiplayer
