PSP – 152,590
Wii – 141,543
PS3 – 110,694
DSi LL – 104,659

As many of you know, Madworld is not a Wii game that sold very well, and when it comes down to it, I just do not know why. Maybe it was the over the top violence, maybe it was the graphical style; either way, it’s a very fun game that is worth playing, and after the official price dropped to just $20, I was sure that no one would pass it up. Well, apparently people have passed it up because the price on Newegg.com has dropped to just $10, with free shipping. I usually don’t push my agenda on anyone, but I would highly recommend picking this game up for this price. Even if you hate it, it was only $10, so you really can’t go wrong.

Suda51: I wish I could develop the way indie developers do
Posted 9 years ago by Austin in General Nintendo, News | 2 Comments
“I would have loved to have started making small games. When I was younger I was thinking, how come the team has to be so big to make one game? So it’s really good to have a small team and people can put forward their own ideas into the game. It’s like for a music artist, they can just put out their single right away, not wait to do the full album. It’s like that, so it’s a really helpful industry. I’m jealous actually.” – Goichi Suda
I can definitely see where he’s coming from with this one. If you’re a small developer, you have a lot more freedom to do what you want without the hassle of having to deal with publishers.
You do not need to pre-order Monster Hunter Tri to receive the demo
Posted 9 years ago by Austin in News, Wii | 2 Comments
I’ve heard a few stories about people getting heckled by Gamestop to pre-order Monster Hunter Tri in order to receive the demo, and even I was tricked into putting down a deposit on the title! While it isn’t a huge deal, because I will definitely be keeping that pre-order down, it’s worthwhile to post this and clear up some information: You do NOT need to pre-order the game to receive the demo. According to Capcom’s official blog, the demo should be available at no cost to you, so feel free to run into your local Gamestop and steal a copy! Of course, Valay informed me that even when he made it very clear to the employees of his Gamestop that Capcom said the demo should be free, they wouldn’t give him a copy without a pre-order, so be prepared for a bit of a struggle! Or just be real sneaky-like…

Suda51 is interested in moving 8-bit NMH2 jobs to DSiWare

This comes from a recent interview with VideoGamer:
“[After being asked if he would like to put the games onto DSiWare] Good idea! I want to do that! If you play it, each type of job you can really enjoy. They’re not just a part of a side mission. Each game itself is of a really good quality, in fact.” – Goichi Suda
Would you guys purchase the job mini-games if they went to DSiWare?
