Just-announced Blast Works for the Wii will let you create your very own side-scrolling shoot-'em-up thanks to what the game's publisher Majesco describes as "easy-to-use, multiple in-game editors."
Players are able to build their own levels, ships and enemies, and adding further spice to the variety, you can "absorb" pieces and weapons of destroyed enemy ships to boost your own defenses during battle.
"This exceptional customization combined with the unique "stickiness" of enemy debris and
Kuju-developed warfare will be kicking off on Wii on September 24 when Battalion Wars 2 (or BWii for short) hits stores, according to the latest issue of Nintendo Power.
Battalion Wars 2 is the sequel to the late-arriving GameCube battle original. In it you control cartoon-like tanks, infantry and other meaty military hardware in chaotic but strategic battles with opposing forces.
The new Wii game will bring not only new controls but also three multiplayer modes (Assault, Skirmish and Co-op),
An overwhelming majority of gamers are male, so it makes perfect sense for every marketing team in the world to target their software at young guys. And what do all men ages 18 to one zillion love? Girls, gore and big loud machines. If they could make a game about a firefighting bikini squad that hunts down zombies in a decked-out sex/fire truck, world peace would be declared. But until that day, we have to settle with regular old T & A.
Developers are well aware of this, so occasionally
After last week's touting of the 44 Wii games Nintendo has in development, the company has since detailed the titles it will be rolling out in Japan this year - and it's a mighty impressive list indeed.
According to the list - which was swiped from financial documents by IGN - Nintendo will release its three big hitters: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Japan this year - and considering their importance, probably the rest of the world as
Of all the major sports, baseball might just be the least accessible as a gaming experience. Between obscure laws like the infield fly rule and knowing what pitch is best to throw in a 2-1 count, it's just not that easy to pick up and play.
That's probably what 2K Sports and Visual Concepts were thinking when they thought up The Bigs, a new baseball title that aims to be an accessible, arcade-style experience. Now we've got some new details and screenshots to share with
It's been quite a rollercoaster ride for Virtual Console updates the past several weeks. One Monday we all woke up to Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV and that was it. Is Nintendo trying to disappoint us or something? But then to counter that sad, sickly update, today we're getting Gradius III, Wonder Boy in Monster World and Battle Lode Runner, three games that are all worth picking up. What a great way to start the week, eh?
For those who weren't alive when Bush was on his way out to make
We were going to show you this tomorrow, but thanks to the unpredictable internet, the announcement of EA Montreals brand new Wii dancing game, Boogie, was leaked a day early. We flew to Quebec last month to witness the game's first unveiling.
Boogie isnt just about waving a Wiimote around like youre Travolta - its a frankengame that combines dancing, karaoke, and custom music videos. The singing aspect has shoveled a bit more fodder into rumors of a Wii microphone, but weve yet to hear any
Bionicle Heroes, the LEGO-based action game from LEGO Star Wars developer Traveller's Tales, is heading to Nintendo's Wii this spring, complete with Wii-mote capability - and we've got the first screens for your eyes to look at. Hit the Images tab above for more shots.
Based around the Bionicle toy universe, you'll be battling laser-spitting Piraka across Voya Nui island in search of the Mask of Life. But you already knew that. Aimed proudly at LEGO-loving urchins, the Wii edition will share a
Everyone's favorite bubble-wranglin' dinosaurs are back on the scene in Bust-A-Move Bash! and set to make their Wii debut this February. To get you psyched for all the spherical action coming your way, we've got a bunch of new screens for you to enjoy, so hit the Images tab above.
The screens showcase the eight player action (eight?!) that looks crazy fun, though we're not quite sure how Bust-A-Move Bash! will manage eight players at a time. Simultaneous usage of the Wii Remote, GameCube, and
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of
