To Digital or not to Digital?

I remember the day, back in the wild times of the mid ’90s, when we were still amazed by Mario Kart 64’s whole eight character roster (Wario, playable?  Wow!).  Back then I’d rush home from the store as fast as the city bus would get me there (not very) – and pop my brand new shiny cartridge into the ’64.  Boom!  New game, product complete, fired up in all its early 64bit 3D glory.  Two years later, that game would be just as was then – awesome.  No patches required.

We’ve been having so much fun rounding up Fallout memes and illogical game moments, we thought Link deserved a turn.

The Rise of Social Games

Socially-based games have been steadily gaining mainstream popularity with champions such as the Nintendo Wii and Zynga’s Farmville. The interesting aspect of the new paradigm is its accessibility to all age groups, particularly very young and very old players who would not traditionally be found in front of the computer screen.

Why the sudden shift in demographic?

Goldeneye 007

It had been brought to my attention recently that a remake of Goldeneye – the N64 classic – is in the works.  It will feature Daniel Craig though.  This project is something I intend to follow.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

I have to confess it’s been a long time since I so thoroughly enjoyed a video game. Thanks Dave for getting me a copy of the new Super Mario Bros. Wii this Christmas.

For those who haven’t tried it, the new Mario Bros. Wii is classic Mario at its best; 2D running, jumping and stomping without all the camera angles we’ve had to endure in the latest games. No pretentious storyline with long cut scenes, just eight worlds of side scrolling fun (nine, if you can find all the goodies). I honestly felt like I was playing through a game that was built from the best elements of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.

The Wii, the ‘hardcore gamer’, and the other consoles

One of the regular arguments we see these days on the interwebs is about the value of the Wii and the contribution it makes to gaming.  Many self-proclaimed ‘hardcore’ gamers seem to despise the Wii and some of their points are quite true – the Wii is home to a great deal of ‘shovelware’.
