[News] Sleeping Dogs developer at work on a new game in that worldYou'll have to wait until 2014 for the meaty details, but for now, know that you can look forward to more Triad fun!
[Reviews] Grand Theft Auto VOne of the biggest events of the year does so many things right that you'll probably be willing to overlook its offensive nature.
The developer and publisher responsible for the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise is looking to expand North American operations.
Very late last night, Idea Factory issued a brief press release to announce that it has established a new branch in California. The name of the new branch is Idea Factory International, Inc.
"As it increases the volume of various content it wishes to make available globally," the release reads, "including video games, animation, and social apps, Idea Factory International, Inc. intends to focus on providing general and overall information regarding such Idea Factory properties to North American and European fans, as well as strengthen the Idea Factory brand around the globe."
I say that with certainty, because mine just arrived today.
My wife is extremely displeased with me, because today I came back from the mailbox with a large box. I then opened it and pulled out some stuff--a bunch of CDs and some bubble wrap--and proceeded to devote a few seconds of my attention to the latter of those two items. Pop. Pop. Pop. I didn't get to a fourth pop because my wife most certainly does not appreciate the concept of bubble wrap catharsis.
The CDs were of course the main attraction. After my wife voiced her displeasure over my fun with the bubble wrap, I retreated to my office and took the photo you see above.
The Kickstarter project looks to bring the world a true spiritual successor to Mega Man.
The Mighty No. 9 project on Kickstarter comes to a close in less than 30 hours (as of the time of this writing), and already it is a huge success. Keiji Inafune and others who worked on Mega Man 2 have come together under the Comcept banner and they are working on a spiritual successor to one of the most beloved NES platformers of all time.
The project launched on August 31, 2013, and runs through October 1. Its original goal was a modest $900,000, but numerous stretch goals were offered and the project currently has raised more than $3,100,000 on Kickstarter alone. Separately, Comcept is accepting funds through other sources, and all of the money in the pot goes toward the stated stretch goals.
I've realized that it shouldn't be this difficult to put together a list of the top 10 games in one of my favorite franchises...
Today, the writers at Nintendo World Report put together an ambitious list ranking their picks for NWR's Top 10 Zelda Games. I looked through their picks and immediately I could tell that they got it all wrong. One of my favorite titles in the series wasn't on the list at all, and others ranked lower than I thought they should. I decided to put together a list of my own, which is where I ran into trouble.
It turns out that for me, putting together a list of the top 10 Zelda games is difficult because I've actually only played ten games in the series. Here's my list anyway:
10. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (GBC)
09. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii)
