Swords and Soldiers 2 Announced for Wii U

  Ronimo Games has announced Swords and Soldiers 2 for Wii U. The original game was a 2009 WiiWare title for Wii. If you have never heard of Swords and Soldiers, you can get a taste of what that game is like here.  Ronimo has yet to announce a release date, but you can play SaS2 at the sold out PAX East in Boston…if you already have a ticket of course.

Mii Verse Coming To Smartphones and Web Browsers In May

Since it was announced, I have been wondering how Nintendo will incorporate the Mii Verse into the mobile platforms. During a talk at the Game Developers Conference, Kiyoshi Mizuki (Mii Verse Producer)  confirmed that the Mii Verse will be available on Smartphones and Web Browsers within the next couple of months (May).  At first we can expect an app with basic functionality, such as posting comme...

New Square Enix Title for Wii U

Square Enix plans on attending PAX East with the intent to showcase various videogame titles.  It has recently been revealed that this will include a previously unannounced title for Wii U.  The company is being quiet on any official details at this point, so the rumor mill is working overtime to speculate as to what this game could be.  The most likely candidate appears to be a port of Deus Ex: H...

Miyamoto-san, what did you eat?!

So I went to PAX East this past Saturday—it was fun! I only really hit up the exhibit floor to check out new games and the 3DS, but that was enough for me. I also bought a wooden training sword for no particular reason. While touring the floor, I visited the 8-Bit Cubist booth and picked up a few postcards. These guys and gals can seriously draw, and the images presented here are but two exa...

Mysterious Nintendo 3DS Demo Pod schedule revealed

UPDATE: The pods are now open, anyone check one out yet? And if you have a crippling fear of pods, you can visit one of the roaming Demo Squads listed in this schedule. Besides this weekend’s showing at PAX East in Boston, Nintendo will begin to show off the 3DS at mysterious Demo Pods in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, on Friday morning. Do you live in one of those cities...

PAX East: Two games that belong on Wii

While touring the PAX East exhibition floor, we had the pleasure of seeing two amazing games destined for much success: Limbo and Puzzle Quest 2. David labeled PQ2 a must buy that’s all but pre-ordered for his DS Lite, while I couldn’t stop gushing over Limbo, a simple black and white Xbox Live Arcade 2D platformer that deals in nothing but light, shadow and a pair of beady white eyes ...

PAX East: Some things never change

Oh look, people still aren’t playing Deca Sports (said in half-jest, as I don’t have the first game’s sales numbers handy).

PAX East decompression

So who went? What did you think? If you didn’t go, but kept tabs via some other form of online communication…what did you think? Some quick takeaways for me: Awesome show, albeit an overcrowded one that will 100% confirmed be in a larger venue next year. I left the show energized about gaming, about gamers and about creative people in general. I also left about $200 lighter than when I...
