Atlus Extravaganza!!!

Ok, so if you read this blog even once in a while, it's pretty likely that you know I'm a pretty big Atlus fan. I'm not quite sure if I've crossed into full-blown Atlus whoredom, but I may be getting there. In any event, because they have a great upcoming lineup (and because I have no other blog topics this evening) here's a quick preview of four games coming down the pipe from the hardest-working developer in showbiz…

Cocoto Platform Jumper, 'Splosion Man and The Legend of Neil

Huge thanks to Anonymous for tipping me off on how to defeat the gorilla boss in world four of Cocoto Platform Jumper (WiiWare).

It's a simple little game that by all reckoning should have been a complete cakewalk, but this gorilla seemed invincible and all efforts to find answers on the Internet were a complete fail. My frustration at this part had grown to the point that I had actually quit the game in disgust, and I was contemplating calling Nintendo to complain that they were selling a piece of defective software. Then, lo and behold, Anonymous chips in with a comment and solves the mystery.

The Revolution... no really, we mean it this time!

HIGH When Wii MotionPlus works, it works.

LOW When Wii MotionPlus doesn't work, it doesn't.

WTF Trying to Cycle with my hands equals "Why?" plus "Ow".

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Review

Bustin' makes me feel really, really good

HIGH It feels exactly like playing a never-released Ghostbusters movie.

LOW Bill Murray has a few good lines, but mostly phones in his performance.

WTF The last level is the weakest, most trite in the entire game.

Tales of Monkey Island Chapter One: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal Review

Won't anyone think of the monkeys?

HIGH Pink Pajama Pierre...say that three times fast.

LOW Wandering the jungle in circles, trying to figure out the map when you're not good with maps.

WTF Voodoo root-beer.

The Horror Geek presents: Dead Space movie lands a director

dead-space-1

Dead Space was one of the better games of last year—an atmospheric blending of Event Horizon and Alien that gave me hope that maybe game developers can still come up with compelling original properties instead of just churning out sequels.

The game's already spawned a comic book, an anime movie tie-in, a sequel game and a on-rails offshoot title for the Wii—all this on top of the feature film version we’ve been hearing about for some time now. 

Beyond Good & Evil 2 is not exactly a sure thing

Beyond Good & Evil 2's not exactly a sure thing

You didn't really think Ubisoft was going to make a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil did you?

IndustryGamers: Most publishers make decisions based on sales, so what made Ubisoft decide to pursue Beyond Good and Evil again?

Laurent Detoc: Well, I didn't say there's definitely going to be another game. I said something had leaked, which means we've been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there's going to be another game or not, that's something for the future. But getting to your question as to why there's work on the IP again, it's a creative people business; the creative talent is interested in it and possibly exploring how to do it from a new angle.
