New Game Get rises from the grave with Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Dead Space Extraction, Arkanoid Plus, and Altered Beast

This week’s big releases are Dead Space Extraction and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. I have to speak up and say that the inclusion of The Faint’s “The Geeks Were Right” on Guitar Hero 5 has made me VERY happy; their album Fasciinatiion was my favorite of 2008. Arkanoid Plus is a new WiiWare title that I will definitely get and it might be hard to pass up the arcade version of ...

New Game Get gets scribbling! [updated]

The DS wins the week with both Bowser’s Inside Story and Scribblenauts making their debut. Over on the Wii there’s NHL 2K10 and Toy Story Mania that look interesting.  Still no word from Nintendo yet on the WiiWare, DSiWare, or Virtual Console games. DSiWare titles this week are Art Academy and Oscar in Toyland, for WiiWare it’s Texas Hold’Em Poker, Spaceball: Revolution, and ...

New Game Get – Beatles Rock Band, Muramasa, and Contra Rebirth!

This week’s big release is The Beatles: Rock Band, but you have to admit that Muramasa looks pretty awesome, too. Guitar Hero is switching their downloadable content exclusively to GH5 and it looks like they’re trying to counteract Beatlesmania with some Rolling Stones. Rock Band 2 continues to get a ton of DLC with some Talking Heads and some Penny Arcade Expo tracks. And OMG … ...

Poll – Guitar Hero 5 vs Beatles Rock Band

Well, it’s time for another round of rhythm game show down.  This week we want to know: {democracy:94}

Pirates and music? New Game Get!

My mind is exploding this week .. only one game for Wii, but it’s Guitar Hero 5! And then there’s the second chapter for Tales of Monkey Island, not to mention that some folks will be excited to check out the original Master System version of Phantasy Star. Don’t even get me started on the DLC music for Rock Band 2 this week, either … Christmas? Click on in for the huge lis...

You must purchase Guitar Hero 5 to continue downloading new songs

Jimi Hendrix burned a guitar in his grave today, as owners of Guitar Hero (4) World Tour will no longer be allowed to download new songs without upgrading to Guitar Hero 5. Or so it seems, if recent comments made by Activision are to be believed. “Guitar Hero 5 downloadable content will be compatible with future Guitar Hero and Band Hero games,” a representative told Dtoid on Saturday....

New Game Get gets too many games!

This is actually a pretty amazing week for a Summer release date.  Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is awesome. Metroid Prime Trilogy is guaranteed awesome. Super Empire Strikes Back is virtually awesome.  And Cursed Mountain at the very least has an awesome title.  Check on in for more new games and DLC for Rock Band & Guitar Hero.

New Game Get is downloading now!

This week is all about the downloads. After watching some video footage of this new Nintendo title, I plan to check out PictureBook Gamesâ„¢: Pop-Up Pursuit. It looks like it might fill the Mario Party hole we’ve had for a while now. Revenge of Shinobi for Genesis and some great Rock Band songs round out a decent week of downloads. Too bad the regular Wii and DS games this week can’t k...

Nintendo to offer 32GB SD card streaming

Nintendo, slow to start and downright stubborn when it came to the “how the hell do I store more than five games on my Wii” game, is now set to offer support for 32GB SD cards when Guitar Hero 5 arrives later this year. Welcome to the present, Nintendo! But seriously, this is good news, as game data will soon stream seamlessly from SD card to console, meaning things like this are entir...

New Game Get hits the gridiron and heads to Tatooine

It’s that time of year again for a new Madden game. Nintendo has a new game out called Fossil Fighters, too. A lot more Rock Band back catalog songs are released while Guitar Hero World Tour has a bunch of free tracks. In other download news, WiiWare gets NyxQuest and a new game from Nintendo called Rock N’ Roll Climber, DSiWare gets a Brain Age minigame, and freaking Super Star Wars c...

New Game Get dashes into the kitchen for pork chop sandwiches

Not a lot to get excited this week, except maybe G.I. Joe and the return of Virtual Console with Tecmo Bowl! (And I’m casting a sideways glance at M-rated WiiWare title Sexy Pokerâ„¢ … they trademarked “Sexy Poker”??) Hop on in for the full list, plus a ton of Rock Band DLC releasing this week.

New Game Get has tropical fever with Monkey Island and Wii Sports Resort!

It’s official .. with both Wii Sports Resort and the WiiWare release of Monkey Island, this is the best release week of the last three months! (I’m still a little concerned about two weeks in a row of no Virtual Console titles…) Click on in for other games and DLC for Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
