Review: Alien Syndrome (2007)

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

aliensyndromewii

Alien Syndrome was resurrected in 2007 for a sequel to the 1987 arcade original that came to Wii and PSP. In our review of the Wii game, we discover if it was worth the effort of bringing back such a long-dead franchise and whether developer Totally Games had anything interesting to add to such a simple formula.

Video Spotlight: Wii Gameplay of Rodea the Sky Soldier

Monday, April 6th, 2015

rodealogo

While Rodea the Sky Soldier won’t be published in the West by SEGA, the game’s origins lie with ex-SEGA developer Yuji Naka. His new studio Prope developed the original Wii version of the game before it was shelved. The game was then remade for Wii U and 3DS but limited edition versions of the Wii U game will now come with Prope’s original Wii version which varies slightly to the Wii U and 3DS games. The Wii version has a greater score attack focus (similar to Naka’s NiGHTS into dreams…) which is at odds with the Wii U and 3DS’ focus on exploration. You can now watch a large section of Wii gameplay below:

Rodea the Sky Soldier is released in the West on the 25th of September through NIS America. Day one editions of the Wii U version will come with the Wii game as a bonus disc.

Merchandise: First 4 Figures Reveal NiGHTS Statue, Pre-Order Now

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

First 4 Figures have unveiled a new statue and this time it takes the form of NiGHTS. The statue is modeled on the signature pose NiGHTS pulls on the original game’s title screen but the character is in the costume that was introduced with the game’s sequel, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. The crescent moon also lights up which is quite a lovely little touch.

The NiGHTS statue is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and is available to pre-order now. The entire statue will cost you $234.99 with an initial $20 down-payment. You can go straight to the statue’s entry on First 4 Figures online store by clicking here.

Video Spotlight: Shay Deconstructs the Sonic Franchise

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

I’d like to draw your attention to the latest episode of Shay Says. If you’re unfamiliar with the series then it’s a documentary-style video games show that deconstructs certain games of gaming franchises in a similar way to Egoraptor’s Sequelitis.

For the latest episode, Shay is taking a detailed look at the gameplay mechanics of the Sonic franchise (and when I say detailed, I mean detailed). 2 more episodes will follow that look at other aspects of the franchise.

While I wouldn’t normally recommend watching an almost feature length video about a games franchise, Shay has some incredibly interesting things to say about what works and what doesn’t regarding Sonic gameplay mechanics. He’s also one of the few people I’ve seen actively suggest alternative mechanics that might just improve the experience.

If you have the time then please take a look at the below video because it’s an extremely well made and unbiased look at what makes the Sonic franchise work so well and what doesn’t.

Video Spotlight: Our Collection of SEGA-Published Wii Games

Friday, October 18th, 2013

We love the Wii. It’s a brilliant console that didn’t really get the love it deserved from the more experienced gaming public because despite its family friendly appearance, a great deal of exciting and interesting games got released for the system. Some of those were even published by SEGA!

The below video showcases our personal SEGA collection of games published for the Nintendo Wii with an in depth focus into why we like or dislike each of the games we own:

Rodea the Sky Soldier Amazingly Not Dead

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Prope’s NiGHTS-like Wii and 3DS game Rodea the Sky Soldier is still due for release despite being announced in 2010. We even spoke to Yuji Naka back in 2011 and he confirmed that the finished game had been submitted to Kadowaka Games which meant we all assumed it was almost time to go gold.

Yoshimi Yasuda who is the president of Kadowaka Games has revealed that Kadowaka who are porting the Wii version to the 3DS were having trouble adapting the control scheme. Yasuda also said that the version is about 70% finished and that there will be more information in the near future.

The Conduit on its’ Way to Project Shield

Friday, January 11th, 2013

The Conduit has made an unexpected appearance on Nvidia’s new Project Shield device.

A listing on TegraZone (Nvidia’s Android store) lists The Conduit as ‘TBA’. Representitives for Nvidia have also confirmed The Conduit is in development for Project Shield but didn’t supply anymore information outside of naming High Voltage Software as the developer.

Polygon (who made the discovery) asked both SEGA and High Voltage Software for comment but neither company have responded.
