Game Whispering:Nintendo’s E3 press conference

Posted in Wii with tags , on July 21, 2008 by gamewhisperer

____ So by this point you’ve probably already read just about every game journalist on the webs E3 press conference impressions, so I’m probably a little late on this but I like to take my time on these things. Nintendo had an interesting showing at E3 this year to say the least — underwhelming may be a better term. Despite announcing two new peripherals which will ultimately give hardcore Wii gamers some of the solutions they have wanted since the systems launch, Nintendo still seemed to show a complete lack of an awareness to their hardcore crowd. Read on to see how I break it down. Continue reading

Two Classic Game Franchises Finally Make Their Return to Nintendo Home Consoles

Posted in Wii with tags , , on June 26, 2008 by gamewhisperer

Castlevania and Mega Man coming to Nintendo’s little white box; one returning to form and the other…err…. not so much.

____Well it’s official, Nintendo Power has just confirmed that the recently discovered Mega Man 9 is indeed coming to Wii as a WiiWare download. What’s even better; the game is going to rock NES-esque graphics in the ultimate return to form for the long running series.

____Needless to say I could not be more psyched. I am not only a huge Mega Man fan, I am also someone who feels that the Blue Bomber was in serious need of a makeover and just like what all those flashy makeover shows on TV do to aging women, Capcom simply made Mega Man look like it’s younger self. This officially puts Capcom in the spot of my favorite 3rd party developer on Wii — as if Zack & Wiki wasn’t enough.

Metroid on the big screen With Michael Bay Producing?

Posted in Wii with tags , on June 5, 2008 by gamewhisperer

Probably not, but lets speculate just for the fun of it

Will we ever see Samus on the big screen? Lets hope

____As many die hard Metroid fans have probably heard, the rights to a Metroid feature film have been floating around for years. It seems reasonable enough, Metroid is a popular game franchise which features lots of high tech gadgets and creepy alien worlds, you know the kind of things that tend to sell tickets. But could a movie based off a game which relies on very little dialogs really be any good? Personally I think the answer is a resounding yes, but I have a feeling production companies being pitched the idea would be a bit more skeptical. Make the jump to get my opinion. Continue reading

*Another Update: Good news everybody I’m back up and going. I’ve got a new computer and everything so we should be good from here on out. Check back in tomorrow night for a long awaited update, I will finally post my thoughts on the rumored Metroid movie and I may even have a review ready, I hope you check back in.

*Update: Well things haven’t gone quite as I planned, I can’t get the article I typed on my iPod to post through it, though this update seems to be working just fine… Maybe it has to do with the length of the post, I’m not sure. So it seems I’m going to be waiting a little longer to really get anymore posts coming, I’ve got a new computer on the way so, whenever it arrives I’ll be back up and going.

____I’ve had some unfortunate major meltdowns with my laptop lately so updates are going to be a little scarce for the next couple weeks. As of right now I’m typing this with my thumbs on my iPod… not exactly the most comfortable way to write, I must say. I managed to type out a whole post though so check in tonight when I weigh in on the rumors that Michael Bay has been selected as the producer of the nearly forgotten Metroid Movie.
