REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Nintendoes It Again

Posted on Thursday, May 25 @ 18:38:58 Eastern by Ben_Silverman
Like Marty McFly hopped up on meth, Nintendo today zoomed through their past, present and future.
 
The most notable of these regards the future, particularly the Wii console and its price, which they officially announced will be under $250 when it hits the States. That’s half as much as the "cheap" version of the PS3.
 
Given, the PS3 and the Wii aren't really in direct competition since comparatively, the Wii is such a technical lightweight. Those interested in HD gaming and hardcore franchises like God of War and Metal Gear probably aren’t going to suddenly switch gears and start waving around a remote to make Wario cut up a pie. I will not lie to you, dear fake reader: I played all the Wii games at E3 and frankly, many of them are gimmicky. Not all, but most.
 
But hand it to Nintendo for getting yet another thing right in their march towards their first potentially successful console system in ages. I think I’m still a hardcore gamer, but I’m also a discerning shopper, and spending $600 bucks on a PS3 will take some serious convincing. Dropping $250 on a Wii, though, will just take me getting past saying the name out loud without giggling.
 
Like that’s ever gonna happen.
 
To ensure this future dream of increased market share becomes a reality, Nintendo also announced today that resident brute Reggie Fils-Aime (pronounced “fwee-hwa-jhoo-boo-lay-wee”) is now President brute of Nintendo of America. His stock certainly rose after E3 and we understand that the guy is a monster strategist, but he’s also a monster, a big, scary, imposing monster who yells a little too much for a guy running the company responsible for Pokemon.
 
And in past news, President Reggie recently admitted in Nintendo Power magazine that the company made some key missteps with the Gamecube, particularly in its software lineup. Nice gesture, but that’s like saying you might have had too much to drink after killing a man with an empty bottle of Night Train.
 
Still, it’s great to see the company this active. I guess playing all that Wii really gets the blood pumping. Please insert your own joke here.
