Start the Party! Review

  Games like Start the Party! beg for attention. The high energy announcer and bright, colorful, cartoony visuals come alive on the TV. Start the Party! is a compilation of mini-games, but it is one of the best compilations ever, so that means it deserves some attention. As one of the best launch titles for the PlayStation Move, Start the Party! will be the star of any party. Start the Party! wants the world to know that it makes full use of the PlayStation Move. Players will start the game off by taking a picture with the PlayStation Eye to use as their avatar. To further differentiate players, a short audio clip can be recorded to announce whose turn it becomes along with the image. True to its own name, Start the Party! wastes no time in beginning the game with minimal setup. The mini-games take some inspiration from WarioWare games where fast changing, speedy mini-games rotate to cause an environment that feels like the game is careening out of control like a runaway clown car.

Kombo's Weekly Round-Up: TGS 2010, Halo: Reach, Move, and More!

It was a busy week here at Kombo thanks to the Tokyo Game Show, which is trying to make a comeback from obscurity, and as a result, was filled with announcements from Japanese game developers, including the BIZZARRE announcement that Yakuza 4 will be a zombie game. Yeah, figure that one out.  We also got our hands on Sony's Move for the PlayStation 3, and have several reviews up for the launch games.  And, of course, there was the release of Halo: Reach, which apparently was a huge success, with $200 million in sales on day one. Unfortunately, 90% of those purchasers are still whiny little teenage boys, but with a new auto-mute feature for truly annoying players, Reach's online gameplay is better than ever.  Check out this week's news after the break and get caught up. There's a lot here, folks, because as usual, we cover everything that matters. Read More


EyePet Review

  One of the least explored frontiers of gaming is augmented reality. Augmented reality involves using technology to enhance the “real world.” The application for gaming can be seen in a few places like the now-unsupported Eye of Judgment on the PS3 and Ghostwire on the DSi. The core functionality behind the PlayStation Move opens up many more possibilities with using augmented reality in unique and creative ways. EyePet is one of the very first games that takes advantage of using the PlayStation Move in a unique way and offers a ton of a different kinds of gameplay that focuses on nurturing, rather than all-out destruction. EyePet puts players in charge of a virtual animal from the moment it hatches out of the egg until the Blu-ray disc collects dust on the shelf. EyePet is a simulation of what a owning a real pet is like, minus all the negative parts like pooping or dying. Players interact with the creature on the floor of their homes and the PlayStation Move is the multitasking tool to give the EyePet its exercise, food and fashion accessories. There are challenges to complete and tons of customizable options to create an EyePet that looks just the way the player wants. Read More

TGS 09: Sony Reveals PS3 Motion-Control Launch Titles

We know Sega and Take-Two are already working on motion-control titles for the PS3, Capcom just revealed the motion-enabled RE:5 Alternative Edition, and we've seen plenty of tech demos from Sony's R&D department. So what first party titles can we expect from Sony once spring 2010 rolls around? Quite a few, actually. At TGS, Sony announced that SCE Worldwide Studios is working on Echochrome 2, Eccentric Slider, Sing and Draw, Champions of Time, Motion Party, The Shoot, Tower, and a new Ape Escape, all utilizing the new controller. What's more, Sony is working on motion-control software updates for current titles including PAIN, Flower, Hustle Kings, High Velocity Bowling, and the EyePet. I can't really get excited about a game called "Sing and Draw", but a new Ape Escape sounds great. Hopefully the new control scheme will give the series a much-needed overhaul. Any guesses on what the other new titles might be about? Read More
