Punch-Out!!

– Matt thinks Craig overrated it
– Title Defense mode changes everything, made Craig bump up the score
– Playing through the regular mode Matt saw presentation elements he liked and disliked
– Interface not up to Mario Strikers
– Matt didn’t do Title Defense but he would have scored it a bit lower
– All about patterns
– Craig thinks that Mr. Sandman in Title Defense mode is just as hard as Mike Tyson in the NES game
– Lack of online functionality is a missed opportunity
– Feels like Punch-Out!! remade but no major gameplay changes
– Great for nostalgia/if you haven’t played it before
– Stuck with core gameplay then added presentational stuff around it
– In-game visuals very fluid – For Bozon, almost forget you’re not looking at 720p stuff
– Balance board is terrible
– Bozon thinks it’ll sell well
– Actually marketing the title

Boom Blox Bash Party

– Recommending it
– 8.5, editor’s choice award
– Great sequel all around
– Packed full of content
– Level editor a bit more seamless now
– More options in editor mode
– Connecting to EA’s servers are quick
– No online play, Matt hopes it’s in next time around
– For this game Matt is pleased with the user-created options
– Can rate levels
– Fun game
– Can theoretically play this game forever
– Hardcore and casual gamers should buy this game
– Easy for anyone to pick up
– One of those games that can only be done on Wii
– Has a few flaws (no online, technical limitations, some textures)
– Highly recommended

Will be updated if there are any additional scores…

Yuusha 30 (PSP) – 8/9/8/8
Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth (DS) – 9/9/8/8
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS) – 9/9/9/9
Kizuna (Wii) – 5/4/4/4

Shin Sangoku Musou 5 Empires (Xbox 360/PS3)

What a terribly disappointing score for Kizuna, especially considering how much promise the game showed when it was first unveiled.

DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS SIGNS LICENSING AGREEMENTS FOR NEW MOBILE AND VIDEO GAMES BASED ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL BRAND AND PROGRAMS

May 19, 2009—Discovery Communications, the world’s number-one non-fiction media company, has finalized three new interactive entertainment licensing deals based on the Discovery Channel brand and hit series DEADLIEST CATCH and CASH CAB. Built for mobile, PC and console gaming platforms, the games will debut between June 2009 and holiday 2010.

Specifics on the three new games are as follows:

CASH CAB Mobile Game – CapCom, a leading developer and publisher of mobile games, will create a mobile game based on Discovery Channel’s innovative game show CASH CAB, during which unassuming cab-hailing New Yorkers become trivia show contestants with the chance to win cold hard cash on the way to their destination, or lose and be ejected onto the sidewalk! In the spirit of the fun-loving series, the CASH CAB game will have players racing against the clock to answer general trivia questions before reaching their New York City destination. The game launches for cell phones at the end of June 2009 and for iPhones end of August 2009.
