Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party Wii Package

Ordered this from Amazon.co.uk recently. Never played any of Konami's DDR games but since I got into the rhythm games Ouendan (remade as Elite Beat Agents in the West) and DJ Max Portable so much (I hope the hints about DJMP3 are true!), I thought I would try out the DDR game that just came out for the Wii over here. Try stepping to the rhythm...


Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, New Challenges and the Felyne Buddy

I remember how I bought the first Monster Hunter game for the PSP and almost gave up after spending an hour on it because I didn't like the controls one bit. The weapons were hard to use, there was no lock on, the monsters you fought can kill you in one hit and the camera had to be adjusted manually. It was a good few months before I came back to...


Time Hollow, 5 Hours of Amending History with a Pen

With a title like "Time Hollow: Seeking the Stolen Past (Ubawareta Kako wo Motomete)" I'm sure Konami's latest visual novel game will catch quite a bit of attention. After all, I'm sure the majority of people would be interested to know what it would be like to change the past or travel through time. The story begins the day just before...


No More Heroes, 15 Hours of Style and Wiimote Finishings

Right after the opening video you're thrown into the first main stage of the game, ready to fight your way to the first boss assassin. You're also given an optional interactive tutorial where you get a chance to learn the basic controls. Once you've worked your way through, you're pretty much left to your own devices. You can hang out at...


Coded Soul: Uketsugareshi Idea, 12 Hours of a Monolith and Pet Monsters

Here's an ARPG I just stumbled across and decided to play because it had a tint of MegaTen feeling to it when I saw its screenshots. "Coded Soul: The Successor of Ildea" developed by SCEI. The story begins when a mysterious monolith is found in the depths of the Bermuda oceans. After scientists found that it was composed of a material...


Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, 13 Hours of Wiimote Goodness

I didn't really have my eye on "Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure" because the story and adventure puzzles didn't seem all that appealing. Then the game reached the Western shores of NA and many good reviews, video clips started to crop up on the regular gaming sites I read so, I decided to give Capcom's first foray into the world...


Pangya Golf with Style, Fantasy Courses Hours of Fun

There's still around two months until anything else good gets released for the Wii and having finished Super Mario Galaxy, I decided to find another game to play. Pangya started off as a free and downloadable online Korean PC game from Ntreeve Soft but later, Tecmo decided to take the game and reproduce it adding in their own animations...


Suzumiya Haruhi no Yakusoku Review, First Official Game

I can't believe the number of people who have been searching for a place to download the first official Suzumiya Haruhi game, "The Promise of Haruhi Suzumiya"over the past few days and arriving here. Well, sorry to disappoint but there's no downloads here. Otherwise I could really get into trouble with Wordpress. Maybe you can check...


Those Cheeky Heroes, Demon King and God of Destruction Teams Up

Take a look at this screenshot. When you compare it to what other PSP games such as FFVII: Crisis Core has to offer, it kind of puts you off doesn't it? Well, don't let the visuals fool you because it's another very fun game where you play the bad guy. The full title is "Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaiki da!" which translates roughly to, "Those so...


Super Mario Galaxy in 8 Hours, Fun Enough for All Stars?

So it's been about a month since Super Mario Galaxy was launched over here and how I highlighted its secret and warning messages. I've finished the story now but haven't quite managed to push on for that second ending. There's plenty of reviews out there by now but here's my version. After their first half exciting outing on the Wii, the...
