GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 16: Post E3 2009 Special

Not even the Wii Vitality Sensor could measure the explosive force of our E3 episode. Press conferences! Motion control! Overpriced handhelds! And of course, games, games, games. It's the Internet's only source for E3 analysis, so of course you won't want to miss it. Featuring "Big Daddy" Brad Gallaway, "Horror Geek" Mike Bracken, "Canucklehead" David Stone, and "Nicknameless" Tim Spaeth.

The Horror Geek presents E3 2009: Dementium 2 trailer

I've still never gotten around to playing Renegade Kid's survival horror/first-person shooter Dementium: The Ward. I’ve meant to for ages—it features some pretty amazing graphics for a Nintendo DS game and was reportedly extremely creepy. I'm not sure how the game did at retail, but it critical reception was largely positive.

Apparently the game (which found the main character waking up in an abandoned hospital where hideous monsters still stalk the halls) sold well enough to garner a sequel. Here's a first look at the trailer for the follow up from E3.

Unfortunately, there's no real gameplay footage or anything of that nature on display—leading me to wonder just how far along in the development cycle the project is. No word on a release date, either, but I'll keep you posted.

Video: Super Mario rescues the Princess "UNCENSORED"

Videos from Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy! have been on YouTube for months, but they were censored versions of what would ultimately become a DVD/Blu-Ray release. That DVD/Blu-Ray launched this month (May 12th) and some of the uncensored videos were put on YouTube.

The content of the video is essentially the same, but now Mario is dropping F-bombs.

(Parental Discretion is advised.)

Tokyo Beat Down Review

Go on a terrible date... with justice!

HIGH Charmingly absurd writing hits the right notes.

LOW The simplistic gameplay wears out its welcome almost immediately.

WTF In a good way: every cut-scene featuring Lewis.

Steal Princess Review

Anti-heroines Ahoy!

HIGH Riding on a single bullet when I've lined up enemies perfectly in its line of fire.

LOW Riding on a single bullet when I haven't lined up enemies perfectly in its line of fire.

WTF The rule stating that after every three levels comes a puzzle of soul-crushing hardness.

Knights in the Nightmare art book and CaveIn...rocks

Since the super-nifty dee-luxe Devil Summoner 2 package (scroll down for the pic) got me in the mindframe for extra bonus-type stuff, I thought I'd put out word for the soundtrack and art book that comes with a pre-order for Atlus' Knights in the Nightmare for the Nintendo DS.
