Trauma Center New Blood, Japanese Video Updates

So, Trauma Center New Blood is out in the US now. The weekly Tuesday updates have stopped leaving fans with a trivia game to play to win wallpapers and a PDF version of the manual for download. Just how many wallpapers are there to unlock I wonder? Seems it depends on your score but, I wish they gave you access to all wallpapers if you...


No More Heroes European Version will be Bloodless?

It appears Rising Star Games has made the decision to give us the censored "bloodless version" of No More Heroes that is currently out in Japan. That means all you'll notice when you knock down enemies are probably how they disintegrate with a shower of black pixels and coins rather than the nastier, gory action that will appear in the...


Super Paper Mario Replacement Arrives with Oversized Box

Despite bug-free copies being low in stock, I managed to get my bugged copy of Super Paper Mario replaced after I sent it away a week ago and it arrived in this big box. Makes you think there would be something else packed in there but, it's just one big box with a large piece of bubble wrapping. Not even a note about the bug but, I guess they...


No More Heroes gets Promoted with Toilet Rolls and Adult Humour Ads

So, even after all the magazine coverage and weekly idols cosplaying as Sylvia Christel on their site, the No More Heroes developers are stuck selling toilet rolls? Not really because this is just another promotional event that took place Thursday on the action game's release date. Yup, you save by going to the toilet and that's why...


Square-Enix Announces Dragon Quest Swords and Wonderful World for Europe

Finally! A date for Dragon Quest Swords! It's not an exact date but it's still something! According to S-E's press releases on Gamespress.com, it will be due for Europe sometime next Spring 2008 and they already have the website up and running. For some reason, the press release says "Spring" but the website says "Summer". I hope its...


No More Heroes Set to Get a Soundtrack Already

Still just over 3 days until No More Heroes get released in Japan but, it looks like Grasshopper are confident this game's going to do well. They're so confident that they're already offering free samples of the soundtrack too which will get released two months later on January 23rd 2008. Just head to the Special, Download section of...


Wii Fit Launches in Japan with 100 People Queuing

Nintendo jumps from brain training to your actual physical fitness. What was named as the "Wii Health Pack" a while ago was released today in Japan as "Wii Fit", a selection of games and exercises that you could do by standing on a pressure sensitive "Wii Balance Board." So what was the interest like? Well, Famitsu dropped by the usual...


Fragile, Everyone Ends Up Thinking They're All Alone

Do they? I guess I'll find out by playing "Fragile: Sayounara Tsuki no Haikyo". The official site for this spooky looking Wii "exploration RPG" is now open and greets you with the following: This planet is so vast, Its world overflows, With so many people yet, Every person ends up thinking, "Why am I all alone?"... That mini...


Contact Nintendo for your Super Paper Mario Replacement Copies

I was wondering when they were going to give us more info. It's been two months since Nintendo confirmed the bug in Paper Mario and now we finally have details about how to get replacement copies. I've e-mailed their service centre for instructions but I've yet to receive a reply. I wonder how long this will take? I probably should have...


Super Mario Galaxy, Secret Message on Cover Art and Warnings about Mods

Super Mario Galaxy arrived today and it's interesting to see Nintendo kept the nice cover that secretly spells out, "U R MR GAY" (notice where the sparkles are). I never would have noticed if none of the regular news blogs and forums I read didn't point it out. The graphics designer must have been bored and, I wonder what the person who...
