Super Mario Galaxy 2 Trailer

Surprisingly dropping on May 23rd, here’s a new trailer for, umm…the game in the post title 🙂 Surprising cuz Nintendo usually saves these big games for the holiday season. But this year’s game releases are following a new pattern altogether. Anyways, it looks like Mario Galaxy-The Lost Levels…I think that’s how Nintendo described it when it was first announced. I dunno yall, my Partner-N-Crime and I were pretty excited for this…now I’m not sure, I think NSMBW left a bad taste behind. Hopefully this will be as fun and smile inducing as the first one.

No New Nintendo hardware?! Daily LoL.

“I don’t think it’ll [Wii successor] be any time soon,” Nintendo of America exec Cammie Dunaway told GameSpot at the recent Nintendo Summit.

“Even though our installed base it, at this point, 5 million households larger than the PS2 was at the same point in its lifecycle, [Wii] still has a lot of room to grow.”

There has been 50 million PS2s sold in America, Dunaway points out. Currently the Wii has sold nearly 28 million units. Does that mean there won’t be a new Nintendo home console until 20 million or so more Wiis are sold?

“That said, part of Nintendo’s heritage is to always be looking at innovation, and to always start working on the next hardware every time we launch a platform, so we’ll have it ready when the time is right.” Ah, the future!

And to this I say…

Microsoft X10: Alan Wake

Man, I won’t even pretend to know what this game’s about. I just know they’ve been teasing it since before the 360 came out, and it looks damn interesting. Not only that, I thought I’d have to wait till the fall/winter to play it. It comes out May 18th! I’m pumped…enjoy the little trailer here.

Microsoft X10: Fable III

Here’s a ‘dev diary’ about Fable III. Peter Molyneux and crew talk a little bit about what’s new and changed for the new game. Which reminds me, I gotta get back on Fable II and complete that!

Microsoft X10: Halo Reach

Microsoft had their x10 show a little while back…their mini-E3 for all things Xbox360 if you will. With it came some cool trailers and announcements. Here’s a ‘ViDoc’ for Halo Reach….and it looks awesome, can’t wait till the fall when the game drops. Check the HD version of the video if you can, it’s worth it.

GBU DLC Game Review for Lost in Nightmares (Resident Evil 5) (Xbox360)

Here you get to play through what was just a flashback for Chris in the main game. Being a huge Resident Evil fan, I’ve always maintained that I really liked RE5, but didn’t love it. Upon reflection though, it was a damn fine game once you got over the flaws. At 5 bux and available for the platforms that RE5 showed up on(not sure about the PC version though), this DLC is totally worth it and warrants a 9/10 from the double R.

The Good – The setting takes you back to a mansion that’s very reminiscent of the one in the first game. Except with all the modern audio/visual upgrades introduced in RE5, and man, this is still one damn fine looking game. Very impressive. You get teamed up with Jill again, giving you a welcome throwback feeling. The zombies make a brief appearance bringing some awesome jump scares. Speaking of scares, while the main game was pretty much devoid of any creepiness, this DLC brings the creepy back, and it’s good. My first time through, it took me just over an hour to complete. Once you know what to do, or if you’re an expert, it’ll probably take you a half hour.

The Bad – You can’t save your game….WTF?!?…yeah I know it’s short, but sometimes you gotta turn off the game man. If I’m taking my time and I’m a half hour in, I don’t wanna have to do it again later….which did happen to me. Whatever RE5 issues you’ve had, controls or whatever, won’t be any different here.

The Ugly
– Man, I wish all of RE5 was like this….I had a good time, it was creepy, gorgeous, and made me miss the days when you can easily find a creepy game.
