Some weeks ago we told you about the new Initial D free-to-play game on its way to the 3DS (the Japanese one, obviously). Initial D Perfect Shift Online, developed by SEGA, looked like a shifting-only racing game, and now, with the first debut trailer, we know it for sure.

26 Dec

toejam & earl 3 dreamcastYou’re probably wondering what’s wrong with the title of this article. Yes, we know that we’re talking about a 10 years old game, also quite an awful game to be honest. But the interesting fact is that ToeJam & Earl 3 has never been released for the console it was planned for, the Dreamcast, getting just a minor release on the original Xbox.

This thursday the 3DS eShop will finally be hit with 3D classics from SEGA, including arcade masterpiece Space Harrier.

The game is obviously published by SEGA, but the actual port of the old arcade game (alongside with all the other SEGA classics for the Nintendo 3DS) is made by developer M2, that started in the industry many years ago and it’s responsible for the SEGA AGES compilations on Saturn, and eventually, on PlayStation 2 and Wii Virtual Console.

You’ve probably missed the release of The Typing Of The Dead: Overkill

4 Nov

the typing of the dead overkill

You didn’t? Well good for you. You did, don’t worry, that’s our job. Anyway, even if SEGA didn’t make much fuss about it (they’re probably too busy with Rome II and Football Manager), they found the time to release the sequel of one of the best, most fun, over the top, finger-breaker, completely weird game ever made: The Typing Of The Dead. Anyone fancy a little type-instead-of-shoot some zombies?

The original title was released in 1999 for japanese arcades, and then worldwide on Dreamcast, PC and PlayStation 2. It was based on the second chapter of the main series, and was a masterpiece.

This one, as the title surely suggest, is based on the latest installement of the series, Overkill, and features a lot of funny shit (and swearing).

The Typing Of The Dead: Overkill is out now on Steam for less than £15. Just go for it, thanks us later.

Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine out now

24 Apr

Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine

Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine is a game about heists.  Assemble a crack team of thieves and execute the perfect crime.

The game, developed by indie game studio Pocketwatch Games, won the 2010 IGF Grand Prize as well as the award for Excellence in Design after only 15 weeks of work by one developer, Andy Schatz. Since then the team has grown and the game has been fleshed out on a much grander scale, with online multiplayer, multiple campaigns, a slick new art style, and tons of new playable characters, enemies, weapons, and traps.

The game is available from today on Steam, and an XBLA version has been announced for an any time soon release. In the meanwhile catch the official trailer.

The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time

Do you remember when a couple of month ago we told you about a very interesting documentary about collecting arcade cabinets called The Space Invaders: In Search Of Lost Time? Good, because the movie is finally out and you can grab it on Amazon Video on Demand.

We are not here to talk about moral or something, but those guys really put a lot of effort on making this movie, so if you want to watch it, please avoid torrents.

Just in case, here’s the trailer.

Different sources confirms that the upcoming Android-powered console Ouya will feature plenty of unauthorized Nintendo consoles’ emulators at launch. Indeed an N64 emulator has already been sanctioned and included in the official store, a NES emulator will be ready on the day of the release and a SNES is in the closing stages, developed by two emulator teams.

This could be a smart move for the launch, stated that Ouya still has no launch titles…but what about Nintendo? They’re gonna be very pissed! Brace yourselves Ouya guys…

BattleBlock Theater release date



20 Mar

battleblock theater

That’s why we love PAX, if possible even more than E3 or TGS. We love it because indie developers get crazy and start to release announce an talk about new games.

So after Double Fine and Supergiant Games is Behemoth (the guts from Alien Hominid and Castle Crasher) turn to announce the release date for the long waited BattleBlock Theater!
 The platform game in which you can create your own character using various shapes will be out April 3rd 2013, on Xbox LIVE, for 1200 Microsoft Points. Obviously supporting co-op and multiplayer, and with the usual design we all like!

We honestly are thrilled and can’t wait to play this new game but we still have to wait for a bit… BUT, again, if you’re so lucky to be around Boston even Behemoth are waiting for you at PAX and you should be lucky enough to try BattleBlock Theater in advance.
