Microsoft: Hardcore Gamers are "Wrong a Lot"

Microsoft: Hardcore Gamers are "Wrong a Lot"

Well, that's a big change in tune. Where Microsoft once stood as a bastion for core gamers against the family-friendly atmosphere of Nintendo's casual push, the company has officially joined the dark side...as some would say. Microsoft's Director of Policy and Enforcement for Xbox LIVE Stephen Toulouse lashed out against Kinect's detractors on the latest edition of Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb's Xbox podcast, not only saying that hardcore gamers haven't jumped on the right ship recently, but also...praised Nintendo? "Shipping a console with an Ethernet port? Oh, it'll never succeed. Paying for multiplayer? Oh no, that's not good. I don't like avatars; I won't buy anything that goes to my avatar. The Wii... I mean no offense hardcore gamers, you've kinda been wrong a lot for the past ten years. I love you and I'm a hardcore gamer and I've been wrong too. I was the one who thought the DS was kinda gimmicky and probably wasn't going to take off. I was obviously insanely wrong about that. Give it a chance." Should gamers give Kinect, and by proxy, Microsoft's new family-focused push, a chance? Read More

Nintendo's Conference Even Won Over Blezinski

Gears of War series director Cliff Blezinski revaled today that he gave Nintendo his "vote" for best press conference of E3 2010. The perception seems to be that Nintendo has turned back towards their core fans, but is that the whole of it? "I think Nintendo's back," Blezinski said at the end of an interview with VideoGamer.com. Gamers often joke about how dusty their Wiis have been throughout this console generation, and many of the same people now talk of dusting off their Wiis after Nintendo's conference this year. "That's good to see, because I dusted off my Wii for Mario Galaxy 2," said Blezinski. "I'm hoping to keep the dust off of it." Read More

E3 2010: Mario Sports Mix Includes Plethora of Sports

Perhaps Nintendo was worried that they couldn't simply keep selling a Mario "ENTER SPORT HERE" as a standalone unit each year. Their answer to that dilemma is Mario Sports Mix, a game that includes basketball, volleyball, hockey, and dodge-ball. Introduced after Zelda by Reggie at Nintendo's E3 press event, the game garnered some cheers from crowd. The graphics were bright and colorful. The gameplay looked to be spiced up in the typical Mario sport style. Basketball looks a lot like NBA Jam only with Mario characters and settings. Volleyball and dodge-ball shouldn't look great as well, and if the skating from Super Mario Galaxy 2 is an example, the hockey game could be the break out sport in the package. Read More

Do U Wii - Christmas Shopping Showcase 09 Part 2

Last week, The Won gave us the first part of a Christmas Shopping Showcase for Wii owners, highlighting a number of great titles released over the past year which might have escaped notice. Now, just as promised, he is back with part 2, which rounds things out by covering genres such as Fighting, Racing, Sports, Party, and Exercise, as well as some upcoming future releases: As you can see, a number of these games are sporting newer prices in time for the holiday, making it a good time to buy. And for $19.99, it's hard to beat Excitebots. If you know a group who love playing Mario Kart Wii or Excite Truck, this would be a great one to introduce in order to mix things up a bit. And in case you missed the first part, which covered First-Person Shooters, Platformers, Action, Puzzle, and Adventure titles, you can find it by clicking here. Thanks, The Won, and we hope you have a great holiday! Read More

Punch-Out! Dated - Spring Line for Wii and DS

Punch-Out! is coming on May 18th, according to the latest gigantic Nintendo press release. You'll have to hit the break for that, but a few things of note.

There's also a slate of descriptions for some bigger upcoming titles off of said roster. One weird thing here is the presence of Wii Sports Resort, the one that makes use of the Wii Motion Plus device; it's Spring 2009 release has been changed to merely 2009.

Nintendo's Full Q1 Line-up for the UK

Earlier today, we brought you word of how you could put your Miis on your DS with a new title called "Walk with Me," rather than "Walk with Mii" for some reason. Go figure. In any case, that's only half the story; Nintendo has released their line-up for the first quarter of 2009... or at least, Nintendo UK has. Odds are, a lot of releases will be in close proximity to the NA releases, though, so it can be useful info to us here, anyway. Read More
