Best Game of all time announced; other developers give up to save effort, money

Posted in Japan, News, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , on March 26, 2009 by reasonjp

Those who share my affinity with wrestling games, and quite a few who don’t should be very excited by this:

The Fire Pro Club is reporting that to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Fire Pro Wrestling (the best series of wrestling games in the history of all things ever), two new games are being entered into the canon. Fire Pro Wrestling Anniversary Collection will pack in ten games from the PC Engine titles up to Super Fire Pro 3 (meh), to Fire Pro X and Fire Pro X Premium(worth the asking price by far) as well as a specially reduxed version of Blazing Tornado (read Fire Pro Arcade) alongside some new video content.

The big deal, though, is Fire Pro HD, which will feature a rebuilt game engine, and online play.

The Collection will be available on Wii later this year, and HD will be on XBLA and PSN on September 9th. We at Gaijingamers compel you to stockpile PSN moneys and MSPoints now, lest by September your credit card details get lost or stolen or something, and at the same time a bizarre mix-up leads to a worldwide shortage of the prepaid cards.

EDIT- Aanndd it was all an elaborate early April fool, apparently. One we here were certainly in on from the start. We’re obviously too smart to be taken in by internet ruses. What?

Nintendo wants you to play DS games…Legally.

Posted in Japan, News, Nintendo, Nintendo DS on February 22, 2009 by Stephen

Piracy has always been a big issue for Nintendo DS developers. Since the arrival of flash cards into the market, its now pretty easy for “Fans” to get copies of their favorite games days and even weeks ahead of the release schedule.

This has not come unnoticed by certain developers like Square Enix. Back in 2007, the Japanese RPG powerhouse released Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates. Hackers needed just a few hours to crack the original game and make it available via different torrent sites but after play the game for 20 minutes or so: the message “Thank you for playing!!” appears on the screen and players are unable to progress. However, they can restart from the last check point but the message will appear again, at random intervals. Continue reading

With the much anticipated iDOLM@STER SP launching tomorrow, Namco is prepared to offer a launch DLC catalog. It will be interesting to see if the PSP DLC will be as well accepted as the 360 DLC. The pricing for items is similar.

On another note, stores all around the nation have prepared themselves for the launch.
