Going to bump this page to the front for a bit

Well wasn’t that fun? Access to Nintendo Everything has been cut off for almost two days. The issue stemmed from a new motherboard/ installation of new ram. Without getting into all of the mumbo jumbo, let’s just say that Nintendo Everything went “kaboom.”

Though, one of our technical guys has been working his tail off to get us back online. So all the gratitude goes towards him!

I also wanted to mention that such a long period of downtime is a rare occurrence. We might go down for a short while in a few hours, but I’m not expecting anything catastrophic if all goes well. I apologize that the site was down for however long it was, but I’m glad to be back!

I obviously missed out on posting a ton of Nintendo news. I haven’t exactly decided what I’m going to post up yet, but bear with me. Starting today, I’ll just try to add anything I can to the site.

Now without further ado, I’ll get back to updating the site.

Locomotive Games, owned by THQ, had begun to work on Stuntman: Demolition for the Wii. The PS3/360 saw the release of Stuntman: Ignition, so the series would be able to continue and arrive on Nintendo’s system. The game would feature an ongoing story and characters. However, disappointing sales of Stuntman: Ignition caused THQ to cancel production on the game in addition to ending the franchise.

Cambridge, Mass. – January 20, 2009 – Harmonix and MTV Games announced today the addition of six new tracks to the Rock Band® Music Store catalog of downloadable content for Wii™ home videogame console from Nintendo. The line up includes “March of the Pigs” and “The Collector” from industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails, “I Fought the Law” from English punk rock band the Clash and “Rockaway Beach” from the infamous punk rock band Ramones. The offering also features two exclusive 2008 Rock Band re-recordings of “Margaritaville” and “Volcano” from singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett.

GTA: Chinatown Wars

– Craig got to play it last week
– Showed him early part of the game
– Craig had certain expectations, he’s pretty psyched
– A lot of emphasis placed on touchscreen “side-things”
– Will need your stylus in your hand
– One minigame has you shoving trash aside looking for drugs
– Game engine runs on top screen, bottom screen is where the story happens + touch screen minigame
– Fixed perspective angle
– Never cuts away from action on the top-screen – will still see action on top screen during minigames
– Not hiding from being M-rated
– You’re a drug dealer – buy and sell drugs, dialoge all f-bombs and s word, there is violence
– Blood stays on the road when you run over someone
– Bozon’s excited for the game
– Engine itself runs really smooth – Craig didn’t see frame rate falter – 30 FPS
– No voice-overs, subtitles in cut-scenes – there’s only environmental voice – radio stations are instrumental (probably due to limitations of the cartridge)
– Can listen to radio while walking around
– Not too much humor in the first 5 missions
– Surveillance cameras are hidden packages in the city – if you destroy one of the cameras it can affect the price of what you can get for drugs
– Comes out March 17
– Game is ambitious, it’s a full-fledged GTA experience – Taken seriously at Rockstar
– Bozon thinks he might get more play out of Chinatown Wars than GTAIV
– Huge focus on online – next month we’ll know more about online

Marble Saga: Kororinpa

– Only specific levels use the Balance Board
– Sequel to Kororinpa Marble Mania
– Craig thinks its fun
– Like a Marble Madness clone
– Marble can be a panda head
– For Wii Balance Board stuff there are 30 original mazes just for the peripheral
– Can make own levels and send them to friends or send them to Hudson (who will send them to everyone)
– Comes out March 17
