Random Video of the Day: Simon Belmont is a Douchebag

Alas, poor Simon of the house of Belmont; he never really got much of a fair shake. Certainly, he has appeared in more Castlevania titles than any perhaps other character on the heroes side, and was even featured with other Konami alumni in New International Track & Field for the DS, but he has never really been given much character. As such, when people think of the original star of Castlevania, they either think of a blank-slate barbarian... or this: Truth be told, given the choice between the two, I'll pick the Captain N version. Sure, he's a pompous windbag, but at least he's interesting and entertaining to watch. However, if Konami would ever like to give us a game which fleshes him out more (and no, his revealing outfit in Judgment is not what I mean), I would be all in favor of that. Simon should be able to stand tall alongside other such video game icons as Mario, Link, Samus, Mega Man, Solid Snake, and more. Instead, it's usually Trevor who hogs all the glory. Read More


Building Excite-ment, part 2: Excitebike 64

Though the legacy of the original Excitebike has continued in various forms since the original's 1984 release, it was not until 16 years later that the game would see its first true sequel. Released in North America on April 30th, 2000 and followed by a June 23rd release for Japan and nearly a year wait for its June 8th, 2001 European release, the 16MB Excitebike 64 arrived near the end of the console generation of which the Nintendo 64 was a part. This time, however, Nintendo passed the development chores on to an outside developer, Left Field Productions. Left Field would go on to innovate the Excite brand, stuck with much of what worked in the original Excitebike, but would also add a number of unique features and distinctions from its predecessor, forming what felt like a true 3D sequel to the original NES game.

Bozek No Longer Shining Under Sony's Star, Now Sings Atari's Tune

First, it was Phil Harrison, and now it's Sony's Singstar boss Paulina Bozek who has jumped to Atari. Just what is it about Atari that makes Sony people want to abandon ship?"I am very excited to be joining Atari at this pivotal time for both the company and the industry," said Bozek. "There is a huge opportunity as gaming platforms become more ubiquitous, more connected and attract more mainstream audiences. Atari has a great vision for the future and I can't wait to start realising that vision in new products and services." Harrison, obviously, is quite pleased. "This is a significant step in expanding Atari's online game development capability," he said. "Paulina is one of the industry's most respected creative leaders with an outstanding track-record of commercial and creative success and I'm delighted that she will bring her unique vision, consumer insight and proven ability for creating amazing entertainment experiences to Atari." -- videogaming247Translation: "We aren't interested in traditional games now, and, coincidentally, we don't want Sony making our kinds of games, either. But maybe we can meet somewhere in the middle." Coming soon: SonAtari PlayStation 2600. See the full press release and Sony's response after the cut. Read More


Nintendo Releases Second-Half Line-Up of Games

In an interesting twist (I guess, maybe they do this all the time, and I never noticed), Nintendo has released their US game line-up for the second half of 2008 and into 2009... to Europe. Some highlights included on the list are Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Call of Duty World at War, Guitar Hero World Tour, Skate It, Mushroom Men, two Star Wars games, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, Sonic Unleashed, Ghostbusters, and quite a bit more. Better still, Nintendo says that this is an "incomplete" list, meaning more titles could sneak their way into the lineup. Here's hoping more from the Big N themselves. For the full bill of goods (as it stands), both good and bad, click the jump. Read More
