So there’s this baseball video game from Japan called 98Koshien, and apparently you can control what kind of a delivery movement the pitcher goes through in his wind-up. If you take a look at this video, you’ll see that maybe the video game developers are now regretting their decision.
Maybe they should have stuck with the standard wind-up?
Every now and then some strange commercials from the 1990s resurrect themselves either to our great joy, or to our indescribable horror. I haven’t yet decided which this is yet. But Pokemon fans out there are sure to get a kick out of it.
Have a look for yourself at this commercial for the Pokemon Live show, which surely cannot still be running but most have been a whole truckload of wackiness.
Here’s some pretty amazing artwork that’s been making the rounds on the interwebs lately. This set of pics show Pokemon drawn in a traditional Japanese style of art. I’m sure most of you are fans of Japanese anime, but there’s something to be said for this classic variant. Read the rest of this entry »
This is classic. Check out this epic Pokemon battle featuring Barack Obama, John McCain, and Hilary Clinton. The evil little McCain character is reminds me a little of Chucky from Child’s Play. Read the rest of this entry »

…in record sales. So far, after all the hype and advertisement for the Wii Music, it’s sold below 81,000 in Oct. But I really think that with the current economic crises, people are more tempted to use their money for food than for games, honestly.
When the NPD Group released its October sales figures yesterday, one title was noticeably absent from the top 10–Wii Music. For weeks, cash-flush Nintendo has been heavily hyping the title, the last of the “Big Four” nontraditional properties–along with Wii Sports, Wii Play, and Wii Fit–conceived to appeal to nongamers. It even brought out legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto to show off his latest creation to the US press.
Unfortunately, it seems not even a media blitz aided by the charms of the creator of Donkey Kong could spark Wii Music fever. According to raw NPD data, Wii Music sold just under 81,000 units in the 11 days after it went on sale on October 20. The number is merely a fraction of the 687,700 units Wii Fit moved domestically in a similar period when it went on sale on April 19.
Though many will blame the discordant live jam session at Nintendo’s E3 2008 conference for Wii Music’s lackluster debut, there are two more likely reasons. First and foremost, the rhythm genre is saturated, with Rock Band and Guitar Hero duking it out for supremacy as Rock Revolution, Ultimate Band, and others struggle to catch up.
I have always been a big fan of mortal combat. My favorite character in the game is Sub Zero because I like how i can freeze my opponent’s ass whenever I want and inflict a lot of damage. And now, they’ve come out with a game where Sub Zero can now beat the shit out of Batman. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game…the two worlds are definitely colliding. Watch the trailer.
