Video Game Chat / Re: Upcoming Godzilla game Kickstarter project

Looks like I'm the only one on the board that cares, but just in case I'm not, they've got a Kickstarter page up:

Still pretty far off from the goal, but I was happy to throw some cash at it.  Hopefully this can happen!

Muh. I don't really get what the big deal here is.

It's not the quantity of the characters, it's the quality.  "Jak vs Fat Princess" doesn't really have the same holy [dukar] factor as "Mario vs Link."

Video Game Chat / Super Playstation Bros. Brawl

So Sony's cloned Smash Bros. with Playstation-exclusive characters:

The gameplay looks almost exactly the same, right down to what appear to be final smashes.  Still, it's cool to see another studio try their hand at the Smash Bros. formula... hopefully this will be more successful than the Viewtiful Joe/Ninja Turtle/Cartoon Network attempts at recreating Smash Bros.

I sometimes forget how important nostalgia is for Smash Bros... I think that's why I love that series so much, and why this one doesn't really do it for me.  I've only ever owned a PS2 waaaaay after the fact, so I don't really care about Parappa or Sackboy or Kratos like I do Mario, Link and Samus.  I'm sure plenty of players, especially younger ones who grew up playing the PSX and PS2 the way I grew up on the NES and Super NES are jizzing like maniacs right now.  Including Cloud could probably move a couple million titles alone. I'm surprised we haven't seen him yet. Alucard would be cool too.

Maybe Microsoft will follow suit?  Finally, a game that could pit Master Chief and the steroids-looking guy from Gears of War against... Master Chief and the steroids-looking guy from Gears of War?

I guess I'm just excited about this because having some "competition" will put pressure on Sakurai and co. to really bring their A-game. The only thing that jumped out at me about PSX Bros. is the levels. They seem pretty dynamic, and having the levels themselves be mash-ups is pretty neat... but at the same time, I really like Smash Bros.' cohesive, single-theme levels.

After years of teasing, Olimar and his little alien-plant-helper-things are finally coming back!

More details on the Capcom-Namco-Sega co-production:

It's a strategy-RPG!

Funny and creepy at first, but it got too preachy towards the end. So sick of the "casual gaming/motion controls are bad!" mantra.

So Capcom, Namco and Sega are working on a mystery 3DS game.  There's only been tidbits and teasers so far, and the latest one is a lot more survival horor-y than I would have expected:

Mario Chat / Holy crap Mario's Picross rules
« on: March 30, 2012, 11:09:48 PM »
Seriously, if you have a Club Nintendo account, a 3DS and 100 coins, you have to give this game a shot:

I think I'm hooked on Picross in general now... bummed this didn't catch on in the U.S. back in the day.

Video Game Chat / Upcoming Godzilla game Kickstarter project

Like a huger, meaner, more radioactive version of that broke kid at the arcade, Godzilla is taking donations to get back into video games!

It's still in pre-Kickstarter planning phase, but an indie studio wants to make a Godzilla brawler:  Definitely going to throw money at that.

Salvador Dali and Super Mario have never been seen in the same room together... just sayin.'

Video Game Chat / Kid Icarus Uprising
« on: March 24, 2012, 12:36:21 AM »
I'm a little shocked we don't have a Kid Icarus Uprising thread!  (Or did I just overlook it?)

I've been on the fence about this one for a few different reasons, but with the game finally upon us, I'm pretty psyched for it. The original KI is my favorite NES game of all time, and I love that the man behind Smash Bros, Kirby and Meteos is the one giving us a brand new Kid Icarus adventure. The control scheme sounds... a little rough though. Do funky controls send Kid Icarus too close to the sun?

I'd love to see Yoshi and true flight (instead of hovering and floating) in Super Mario 3D Land 2.

Nintendo's lean mean green machines tie one on in honor of the emerald Isle!
