  • Indie and other games of interest: Hey look, it's all in one post

    During the course of the week, loads of indie games, less mainstream titles and those point-and-click adventures you are always hearing about, sometimes get lost in the shuffle -what with news on Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 happening every three minutes or so. That’s why, much like the MMO news round-up, we’ve decided to […]

    GoNintendo is reporting that Caffeinated Games is weighing up whether or not to bring its latest “board and collectible card game” from PC to WiiWare.

    It’s a Wii game that isn’t made by Nintendo and it’s out on Friday, so you should be interested. “Combining chaotic arcade driving with a huge range of mini-game challenges, players must race against the clock in one of three emergency vehicles – a fire-truck, ambulance or police patrol car to reach different incident scenes,” […]

  • Head-tracking feature pulled from Boom Blox

    Colour us shocked. Joystiq’s reporting that the Boom Blox head-tracking feature – that was supposedly going to allow players to move the game’s camera with head movements – has been pulled.

  • Nintendo Media Summit – full line-up

What’s “Pop”? Wii Wii Fit Boom Blox […]

  • Hands-on with LOL

    We had to post this. Gamespot’s had a go with LOL, the recently announced Agetec DS party game. To summarise, some people get together and draw stuff. LOL. Its blank-slate nature makes it one of the more minimalist games you’re likely to find on the DS, rivaling the simplicity of Pictochat–or even just a blank […]

  • LBP, Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 dated for Europe

    According to this, SCEE’s dated LittleBigPlanet and Killzone 2 for September this year, with Insomniac’s launch title sequel, Resistance 2, down for a November release.

  • LOL announced for America, concentrates on “comedic joy”

    It really is called LOL, as in lol. Apparently, Agetec’s DS game is “a unique, free-form gaming experience,” and “LOL’s motto says it best: ‘If the game is boring, then you are boring.’” Right. “We decided not to include a single-player mode in the game because that would defeat the purpose. This game was created […]

  • Cooking Mama franchise sales hit 1.6 million in US
