Jay Fitzloff on Wii U: We are blazing the trail with what we are going to do.

Darksiders was a game that admittedly borrowed a lot from the Zelda franchise, and according to Vigil Games producer Jay Fitzloff, when the games sequel ships for Wii U, the game will take advantage of the unique controls of the console. In other news, the Darksiders II will be a Wii U launch title. Well, that’s one game accounted for on my Wii U must have list. Darksiders II will take place...

Move over Mario Paint… We got uDraw now!!

THQ has announced something pretty cool today, and I’m not talking about their promise not to release anymore mediocre titles.  I’m talking about uDraw Studio. This game comes with a drawling tablet, and that’s almost if not as cool as the Mario Paint mouse back on the Super Nintendo. This $70 add-on accessory uses the WiiMote to power itself and is approximately 9 inches wide a...

THQ’s de Blob sells more than 700K worldwide

If the sticky, color-spewing de Blob were to splatter paint upon the THQ offices, he would color them green. A pale, cash-like shade, that is. CEO Brian Farrell said Tuesday his company’s colorful Wii platformer has sold more than 700,000 copies worldwide to date. The game’s success has enabled THQ to keep de Blob at its original price point. After five months at retail, de Blob still ...

THQ says to expect more de Blob following strong sales on Wii

One of the games I was most pleased to see under the tree this past Christmas was de Blob. It’s a great game all-around, it’s third party, and apparently it did very well–even better than Nintendo’s Wario Land: Touch Shake It!, which released on the same day. The game did so well, in fact, that THQ all but confirmed a sequel will be coming our way. A sign of things to come ...

Deadly Creatures gets delayed til 2009

According to IGN’s Matt Casamassina apparently THQ’s new and exciting Wii game Deadly Creatures is going to be delayed til sometime in February 2009. This marks the second delay for the game, originally set for an October 31 ship date and then repositioned for a mid-December release. Deadly Creatures was set to be a December release that was going to give us that extreme bug fighting g...

Thornton, Hopper to voice Deadly Creatures

THQ has proposed an interesting new games development theory; quality is equal parts gameplay, graphics and Billy Bob Thornton. The publisher released today a new trailer on IGN for Deadly Creatures revealing actors Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Hopper as two of the game’s primary voice actors. The grisly new trailer showcases Thornton as he warns, “Greed can poison a man’s soul,...

Viva Piñata has rekindled my love for the DS

Months had passed since I last used my DS for personal gaming. It certainly isn’t because I’ve lost interest in the handheld. Recent releases just hadn’t sparked my interest the way older games did. Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise changed that, and I haven’t been able to put down my DS because of it. I received the game from the good folks at THQ to review for another site, a...

De Blob is the best platformer out right now

Quick: Which publisher has released the best platforming game recently: Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, or… THQ? If you guessed any of the first three, you’re wrong. De Blob bests Braid, Wario Land: Shake It, and LittleBigPlanet Beta as the top recent platformer. Granted, all four games are solid (though Shake It is surprisingly the least compelling). But I can’t get over the fresh ga...

THQ’s de Blob gets a perfect score, “would have Miyamoto bowing in respect”

The September issue of Australia’s Ultimate Nintendo magazine features the “world’s first review” of THQ’s upcoming Wii platformer de Blob. Aside from giving the game a perfect 10/10 score, the magazine also proclaims it “would have Mr. Miyamoto bowing in awed respect.” Praise seems to have become the Internet standard for de Blob, as well. IGN posted yest...

THQ’s Wii-exclusive Deadly Creatures looks amazing, gross

Kotaku has a hands-on impression of THQ’s Deadly Creatures up right now, and it appears to be one of the more involved, darker and mature titles some Wii owners are looking for at the moment. That is, if you consider bugs fighting a bloody war with one another while humans look on more mature. I simply consider it “pretty cool” and can’t wait for more info.
