A fantastic ad, spoiled by the ridiculous expression on child Samus’ face.

:O

Arguably the best music video of the year so far, in my opinion. 1:14 = ouch! Not quite sure if it tops Lady Gaga’s Telephone, though.

Pretty cool concept, shame about the car. This is the full version of the advert, the one shown on TV is a bit shorter.

..in a fucking pachinko game. Oh Japan.

It’s a shame, really, since a new Goemon game in the same vein as Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon/Goemon’s Great Adventure using the same art style as that trailer would no doubt be brilliant.

What the hell?

It’s a WiiWare game and it looks absolutely bizzare. It basically looks like you have to make your muscled man strike the correct pose to fit through the shape in the wall left by the the guy in front.

Bonkers.

Monster Hunter 3

I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before. Aside from briefly reading impressions on a few message boards, I don’t know much about the series. Having said that, I am eagerly anticipating the third in the series and hopefully it will get a western release in PAL land. I’m no stranger to grinding or looting (thanks to World of Warcraft) and the online co-op play sounds interesting. It looks like it’s shaping up to be one of the best looking Wii games yet, as can be seen in the latest trailer below, the volcano are in particular looks fantastic. Looking forward to hopefully seeing more of it at E3.

Amazing. The best bit in particular being the classic bike scene. Nintendo certainly aren’t messing about with the advertising for the upcoming new Punch-Out!! game, if they don’t use this as commercial rather than just a promotional video then they are insane. From now on they should just scrap their usual ads with idiots flailing around on sofas, and instead replace them with actors from The Wire. Only two weeks to go.

Currently playing this for the DS. Literally don’t have a clue what the fuck is going on but its unique subject matter for a vertical-scrolling shooter caugh my eye. A pretty solid game and I recommend giving it a try.

The inevitable sequel to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the second best PS3 game (after all there is not much choice) has been announced.

Here’s hoping that the frankly awful gunplay from the first game is fixed. The amount of bullets needed to down an enemy seemed to be mostly random and massively annoying.

Memorable Moment in Metroid: Phenandra Drifts September 10, 2008

Phenandra DriftsAfter escaping for the scorching heat in the Magmoor Caverns, Samus rides the elevator to the surface and emerges into Phenandra Drifts – a vast, snow-covered expanse home to a ruined Chozo temple and a Space Pirate base. The delicate appearance of the snow is a harsh contrast to the lava-filled cavers explored mere minutes before. The most memorable thing about it was the music that kicked in and it’s haunting piano melody mixed with electronica.
