Night of the Mario Galaxy UK Launch Event

Uni finished at four today so I sat around for nearly two hours until the Mario Galaxy launch event started. There was no point returning home since it takes about an hour to head back. I went to the Game store at around quarter to six and people were already queuing behind a single rail with the big Mario Galaxy banner hanging on it. Not a big...


UK Mario Galaxy Launch Event Ads Finally Up

After reading that there's going to be a Mario Galaxy launch event over here, I decided to drop by the Game store to see if it was true or not last week. It was just something I read off the internet after all. I didn't see any signs telling people about it and the staff didn't seem to know either. There were plenty of place holders for the game...


Trauma Center New Blood Opening Video and Two New Wallpapers

The new opening video revealed at the official site seems to be quite a bit better than the one from Second Opinion. Nice MegaTen style music from Kenichi Tsuchiya and no gameplay footage used. I would have preferred an animated opening but, I'm sure that would mean losing a lot of detail from the beautifully drawn backgrounds which...


Mii Contest Channel is Live, Some Interesting Miis

What was originally planned as the "Check Mii Out" channel is now available as the "Mii Contest" channel, free for download via the Wii Shop. If you go to the Posting Plaza you'll find some interesting Miis. You can't really view them all because there's simply too many. It's better if you just chose "Pot of Luck" to randomly select a set...


Wii Console DVD Player Version Not Coming This Year

Nintendo really enjoys making multiple versions of their consoles, don't they? First they came out with the DS "Phat" which I decided to buy because of Brain Age but stores no longer sell them. Then they came out with the DS Lite which I also bought for the better battery power for long flights. Now Nintendo is going to release the Wii with...


New Co-op Footage from Trauma Center: New Blood

Co-op mode is looking really fun from this new TCNB video. Some great teamwork from the two players as they sped through the operation but, I'm sure they "rehearsed" this before the recording. They probably didn't get a good score either hearing the number of mistakes they made. I'm going to have to order myself another nun-chuck on the...


UK to get Mario Galaxy Launch Event at Game Stores

It looks like we don't lose out on everything when it comes to game releases here in PAL land. According to C3, the Game stores around here will be holding an evening launch event next Thursday for Super Mario Galaxy. There will be free goody bags for people who turn up, a costume competition judged by Nintendo themselves for a chance to...


Japan gets a Release Date and Site for Trauma Center: New Blood

It's been a month since the West got a nice site up for Trauma Center: New Blood complete with its weekly updates but, the Japanese only had the magazines to look to - until today. The Japanese site for "Caduceus: New Blood", which officially opened at 18:00 today again, looks better than its Western counterpart in my opinion. There's a...


Trauma Center: New Blood, More Footage of the New Faces

For this week's Trauma Center: New Blood update we've got a new video introducing the "New Faces". We've heard and seen Markus, Valerie and Elena before but they introduce a few other characters too including Professor Wilkins who mentions some sort of disease. I'm pretty sure this is going to be the epic disease that threatens the...


European Release Date Set for No More Heroes

It appears Ubisoft won't be the ones publishing "No More Heroes" over here but, it looks like we Europeans will be getting the game on around the same date as NA in February 2008. Great news! Just a pity we won't be getting the Metal Key Katana accessory as an early purchase gift too. Here's the full press release from Rising Star: Rising...
