Midway's Arcade Offerings Removed from Xbox LIVE Marketplace

Earlier today, Xbox LIVE Director of Programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed that the following games would no longer be available to purchase on the service: Cyberball, Defender, Paperboy, Rootbeer Tapper, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Robotron, Joust, Gauntlet, and Smash TV. Notice anything in common between these titles? That's right, they were all games published by Midway, who was ultimately acquired by Warner Bros. last year. Hryb says that the reason the games were pulled was "due to publisher evolving rights and permissions." Read More

My Game Last Weekend - 04.13.09

So, everything I said I'd play last week? I think I got it almost entirely wrong. I did play a little Kirby's Adventure, but everything else? Nada. Most of my time went right into Animal Crossing: City Folk. Sure, it's similar to its predecessors, but as I said in the review, that's not necessarily bad. I got caught up in the fishing tournament on Saturday (which I won-- go, me!), and spent yesterday hunting down Easter Eggs for Zipper T. Bunny. Now I have a complete room that makes me crave Cadbury Cream Eggs and Deviled Eggs whenever I step inside. Apparently, it's a little contagious, too; my wife finally returned to the game as well, and it's hard to blame her, as the game is kind of relaxing in a way. And things feel much more lively in the Spring, if you want my opinion. I didn't get to touch Wii Play, but I did wind up tossing in-- of all things-- my GameCube copy of Midway Arcade Treasures, volume 1. Had some fun with Spy Hunter, Joust and Joust II (Balloon Fight is still better), Roadblasters, and more as I wondered exactly how the company was able to fall so far into despair. So, those were my games over the weekend. What were yours? Read More

Nintendo's "Kind Code" Evokes Responses from Developers

Earlier, we brought you word about one of Nintendo's more recent patents. And while we don't fully understand the specifics of what it does, it seems apparent to all who have seen it that the idea's goal is to assist less-able players through difficulties which would otherwise put them off of ever finishing the game. Kotaku has spoken with four developers (Ben Mattes, Producer of Ubisoft's Prince of Persia; Todd Howard, Game Director, Bethesda; Jonathan Blow, Creator, Braid; and Michael Wilford, CEO Twisted Pixel Games) to see what they think about it.

EA Announces Celebrity Sports Showdown for the Wii

I wish this announcement was closer to the first of April, but sitting here mid-August I am sure this isn't a cruel joke by EA on the masses that believed that EA was finally starting to get how to develop for the Wii. Celebrity Sports Showdown was announced in a press release sent out, detailing the celebrities, the sports, and when the showdown will...go down? The game is expected to release this winter exclusively on the Wii, and will include 10 celebrities to choose from and 12 events to compete in. Hit the jump for both lists if you're at all interested: Read More
