Download: DBVR demo movie

Illusion / BS


The DBVR second demo movie has been released. Another one of those things I can't link to directly. Don't blame me if you find it.

Is it just me, or does the game actually look damned good on its own merits??

Petition: Border Down for DC

February 28, 2003 11:41 PM PST

Dreamcast Petition / BS


ganbarouze~

Hard for me to believe that there's a dedicated dreamcast-petition domain, but there is. We all know how rarely these things work, but hey - we keep trying right? Sign the petition to bring Border Down to DC from the original Naomi port. The game is made by G.rev, and actually features former Raystorm and G-Darius staff from Taito. A game worthy of play on the DC (official page), so...may as well give it a shot, non?

Falcom / BS


The Moonlight Destiny pre-order goodies are available with purchase now at Asobitcity and Softmap in Tokyo - Falcom was having an event at both locations starting I guess...yesterday at 12. Sorry about the late notice, the 28th is yesterday over there. The event may not be over so go take a look - the full list of goods was previously announced, but you can have a look at it right over here. Actually the Moonlight Destiny wrist pillow is a new addition, but the Ys V PC and MD/Ys V OSTs remain the same. Access maps: Asobitcity, Softmap.

New H game called Sweet Legacy from Frontwing, which I'm mostly mentioning simply because of how wrong it is. Great character design, great music and scenario, but as always with these guys, the chibi thing has got to go. Download the promo movie here, check the gallery here. Release for PC planned on the 28th of March.


Industry Jobs: Playmore

February 27, 2003 8:31 PM PST

Playmore / BS


Two things from Playmore; first off, the KOF 2002 has been added to the DC consumer page, and there you may see several shots (no box art yet though).

More importantly, Playmore is hiring again, and the positions are telling of various things. First they need a graphic designer for animation, games and pachinko slot machines. Animation? Haven't heard that from Playmore before.
Next job up is programmers for game OS. Must have knowledge of Computer Science Engineering, various Linux kernels and device drivers. Intriguing?
They're also looking for a hardware designer, which could indicate that they plan to either abandon plans to use the Atomiswave, or perhaps just want someone who can familiarise themselves with the architecture? The last job is for a pachinco slot machine producer. They're definitely moving into Aruze's territory.

News: Radium GP32 further info

February 26, 2003 7:57 PM PST

Karma Studios / BS


I got a mail today from a fellow by the name of Tom Bryant regarding Radium for GP32. It seems he checked with Karma Studios - here's what they said:


"While we have the GP32 version working, it is uncertain if we will release it for GP32. It seems like the market is too small for us to make any money on it and could possible harm our sales on the other versions. We haven't had much [contact] from our GP32 contacts (including CEO), so we're assuming the system is dead."

Kind regards,

   Martin Wenting     (Managing Director - Karma Studios)

Looks like Gamepark is up to their old tricks. Let's see what we can do about it, eh? Take this poll (you can vote without registering), and in a short time I'll take it to Gamepark. Perhaps it will convince them, even if it's only the view of the west.


News: Playmore release list

February 26, 2003 7:45 PM PST

Playmore / BS


Playmore themselves have yet to post it, but the word is all over the net. New release list:

4.24.03 - Metal Slug 3 (PS2)
5.29.03 - Shin Gouketuji Ichizoku (NeoGeo)
May 2003 - King of Fighters 2001 (PS2)
July 2003 - Metal Slug Advance (GBA)
July 2003 - King of Fighter Advance (GBA)
July 2003 - Metal Slug 5 (NeoGeo)
July 2003 - King of Fighters 2002 (DC)
2003 - SNK vs. Capcom Advance (GBA)
2003 - SNK vs. Capcom (NeoGeo)

Particularly surprising is SNK vs. Capcom Advance - and it seems as though Playmore is reclaiming the KOF GBA franchise. No word on developers for any of these titles, nor any official confirmation of this news, but...exciting no? While we're on the rumor tip, SNK NeoGeo USA has unofficial plans to release metal Slug 3 for PS2 in the US. Looks like my Agetec assumption was correct!

News: Radium for GP32

February 25, 2003 3:42 PM PST

Karma Studios / BS


Thanks to an email tipoff from Zamuel, we learned of a new game in the works for GP32. Radium is an over-the-shoulder person shooter, currently planned for GBA (see shot). But at the bottom of the page, they do mention that they've plans to release a GP32 version, among others. Further, Karma Studios' Radium 3D engine is available for use in creation of new GP32 titles. It doesn't look as nice as some GBA emu out there, but it's interesting to see it come to GP32. Take a look at the demo movie while you're at it. The actual gameplay seems rather poorly designed, given the fact that your character necessarily obstructs your view of the enemy while you shoot them. Still cool to see though.


News: Acclaim to release KOF EX 2

The bumblers at Acclaim seem to have aquired the rights to release KOF EX 2 for GBA. As luck would have it, there's not a lot that they can screw up with this one.


News: Konami new "logo"

February 25, 2003 3:32 PM PST

Konami / BS


In a press release today, Konami has decided to change their logo for their 30th birthday. So-called 'Konami red' is supposed to symbolize the company's creativity and innovation, and their expansion into becoming a holding company. I'm...not sure how they plan to indicate this through the least interesting, most half-assed logo I've ever seen. It's astounding that someone got paid to make this.

Though I'll admit that their other studios have used logos in a similar typeface before.

News: GP32 update

February 24, 2003 11:49 PM PST

Various / BS


Latest info - let's start with the most important. There will be a demo of Bloody Cross this saturday, March first! It will be limited in terms of character selection, but another version will be unveiled closer to actual product release. It should be RF compatible. That is, if GP32 Notebook hasn't steered me wrong (have they ever?).

A new breakout style game has come from French devr JyCet. It's called BlopBlop, his first project in several months! Nice to see some of the originals let us know they're alive every once in a while.

Also, there's another new C64 emu out. Not sure why, the one we've got is near perfect. But if you want it, you can find it.


News: Aruze suit details

February 24, 2003 11:39 PM PST

Playmore / BS


Playmore released another announcement regarding their suit against Aruze. It seems as though the lawsuit boils down to accusations of piracy in two pachinko machines - 'Iregui' and the oft mentioned 'Crazy Racer R'. Playmore is suing for 6.2 billion yen, or roughly 51.7 million dollars. Someone tell me I'm reading this wrong? Sounds like an awful lot of money, but if the dollar amount sticks (Since they've got an ironclad copyright infringement case), it will be a great boon to Playmore and their efforts. They're really cleaning house these days!

Perhaps this weekend a trip down to their office is warranted.

One-time GP32 developers X-Cross have finally released a new title, albeit for cellphone. The game is Great Fishing, and while it may not look as odd as their previously planned fighter Ssgazy, it's still pretty unsettling to look at. Not sure why. Released through Gamepark's (ex?) telecom partner KTF.

News: Mega GP to release amateur games

February 23, 2003 11:51 PM PST

Gamepark / BS


If I'm reading GP32 Notebook correctly, it seems as though Gamepark is offering the opportunity for serious amateur teams to sell games over Mega GP, perhaps due to the dearth of software recently. A good idea, but one from which we english speaking folks will not be likely to profit. The official story is here, but Korean only.

Atlus has made the excellent decision to localize Disgaea to the US next fall!! The game will be retitled Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. If you've ever read this site, you already know the game, but regardless - it's a strategy RPG from Nippon Ichi, with excellent character design, full voice, and tons of truly engaging gameplay options. Definitely the next step for the SRPG. Check out the features, screenshots and movies here. The original japanese page can be found here. Persons on the MMCafe have been pelting Atlus with emails, asking them to allow the option of Japanese voice with subtitles, as they've done with Skygunner and Rhapsody.

Several things have come to pass in the world of SNK. For one, a date has been set for the Matrimelee home release - 5.29 2003 for 39,800 yen. And Playmore has upped the official page for it (still on the Noise site). And also some nice art, which you see to the left there.

There's another press release regarding the trio of lawsuits, but basically just confirms what everyone knew would happen. NGP, WWV and Arcade Infinity have to stop selling/distributing pirate carts. Good for Playmore! It also mentions a bit more about the EAGO/EAKIA raids, but we'll just wait for the English pr papers, as it's really not that unexpected, this news.

But once again the release mentioned SNK NE0-GEO USA. And now they have a home. Awwww...makes me misty.

Last thing, some more scans of the KOF Overstruggle at Hard Edge, so go check that out.

This small patch allows you to play that aforementioned H-scene from DBVR (or one of them, at least), which you may or may not have seen, depending on your ambitions. Those of you who can actually get the game to work, you're lucky people. If you never got the original download, take a look over here.

You'll never die~~

Bandai has made the final decision to cease hardware manufacture for the SwanCrystal and all of its brethren as of today, with all extant orders having been shipped out to retailers. Bandai has also made no further plans for a next-gen successor to the underappreciated handheld. They will continue software support until further notice, but will shift development more to the GBA side, begining in August. A related bit of news from Lycos - Bandai's stock is up 5.3%, rising 200 yen to hit 3980 yen. They closed this quarter with a 23% rise in profits from the previous term.

It's sad to see it go - the last glimmer of Yokoi Gunpey's brilliance that we will ever see.

An article from Lycos Japan indicates that Sega's stock have plummeted even further in the wake of the Segammy merger. It seems they went down 9.9% to trade at 80 yen, marking three days of continual drops in stock price. Industry analysts interviewed for the article say that the outlook is not good, and that even the restructuring with Sammy might hurt Sega's development teams in the interim. This is Sega's fifth consecutive term of loss. ugh.

February 13, 2003 7:59 PM PST

The Economy / BS


Everyone knows this by now - Reuters reported that Sega and Sammy are to become one entity, with all properties shared between. The Sammy president will head the new organization, but Sega will own a small majority of the stock. Perhaps this teaches Sega that there are better ways to beat EA than 'at their own game'. Interestingly Reuters makes it sound like Sammy isn't even a gaming company at all! We all know that to be false. I only wonder - what's to become of Smilebit, UGA et al? Will the merger carry to the west as well??

Guess this is what happens when you miss your sales mark by 90%. This sort of news becomes more and more common these days. We live in changing times.

Kubota Junya / BS


WOW. What a collection! A man by the name of Kubota Junya has been collecting archaic computers for some time now - take a look at his collection. Truly astounding. And his old game system collection is nothing to sneeze at either (CTRL+F "video game" on the same page). An Otaku of the highest order. How long does it take to amass this sort of collection? Well, he's turning 55 next month! Feel free to join the thread in our forum and list your own collections! My modest list is the one at the top. Thanks to the mmcafe post from Porcellino for the link.

Incidentally, this fully disproves anyone who thinks Bandai is new to the gaming industry. They've made as many game consoles as Sega!

Another video of the upcoming PS2 shooter from Cave. The intro is rather silly - basically Arika has found one of the greatest shooting fans, and test his skill with this game - "Watch. Play. Then maybe you should...DIE!" So it says, and it's no like. This fellow just can't make it through without two deaths. Even so, an impressive replay! I love the Darius-esque music too.

Video 2 - Shows Nokia's N-Gage and 6800 and 3650 gaming phones. Specs et al.

Video 3 - Interview with developers Monkeystone. I love this one actually. The girl interviewed says something completely false, only to be immediately countered by John Romero's subsequent words. Are they even aware of the contradiction?

Video 4 - Again, who the hell is this Stevie Case character? Play games on your phone in your car? Way to inform the generation guys. (also shows the Nokia 9290).

"Star DNA Product - Our internet shopping mall introduces and offers a variety of products with your favorite star's DNA. The DNA merchandise keeps fans intimate to their favorite stars."

A couple of things - first and foremost, Agnes, an associate of E-JRW checked out the Bumpers Arcade, mentioned in my Adventures in SF Wonderland article. Here's what she had to say:
"I was walking to the computer lab today and took the route down Pine St and when I hit Kearny I saw it! The Bumpers Arcade, just as advertised! But it was HELLA closed down, so I couldn't buy any crack."

- There you have it folks. The end of an era.

The other bit of site business - I updated the Angel Eyes review to reflect a proper translation of the prefix kanji, a long with a few notes about its usage. Oh - and I fixed the completely ridiculous errors too.

This is old yet continuing news. I'd not heard anything about this prior to my own recent discovery - MEgaking (developers of the infamous Metal Slug 4) seem to be legally releasing the grand majority of SNK's older titles (read Neo-CD games) for the PC. I say legally only because there's no Playmore injunction against them yet. In addition, there's no mention of where to buy these games, but my interest has been piqued. Check out their PC titles here.

Next bit - In the members only section, Illusion have revealed that the first 1000 persons to purchase DBVR will recieve a mini-soundtrack with the game as a numbered set. See the pics below. Several of the tracks will be provided for download (in the aforementioned members section) on the 21st and 28th of this month. Should there be sufficient interest, I will post these as they surface.

February 6, 2003 5:32 PM PST

Oldergames / BS


I contacted R.W. Bivins of Oldergames for his take on the release of the Half-Life ISO for Dreamcast. You can see his intentions for the official release version here.

Brandon:

So what's the word on the ole Half-Life release that everyone's talking about??

R.W.:

Apparently someone got their hands on an earlier beta version and decided to hack, crack and release it on the net. I've seen it and it's a tad buggy and runs at about %50 of the quality of my version.

Unfortunately this makes any potential official release of the final version of Half-Life moot, and I am not too far away from cancelling HH on the dreamcast alltogether. These last few days have shown me that many within the DC community don't see ISO swapping as a bad thing.

This week has been a good one for DC fans but I'd seriously suggest that anyone considering downloading this rip take a step back and think to themselves how they'd feel something they worked on were released without their permission.

It seems as though HH is tentatively cancelled for Dreamcast, according to Oldergames' release list. For anyone who wishes to discover the truth regarding which is the true official release (the leaked ISO or the Oldergames Gold Master Disc) one need only wait a week until we put up footage of R.W.'s game playing on the Dreamcast. The difference is rather clear.


News: N-Gage info

February 6, 2003 4:55 PM PST

N-Gage / BS


I Love Money~!

Sega, Taito, Eidos THQ and others have signed on to make games for Nokia's new handheld. Sega and Taito have both put out press releases regarding their upcoming games for the console (in Japan at least).

Sega

Sonic N
Puyo Puyo
Super Monkey Ball
Virtua Tennis
Sega Rally

    

Taito

Puzzle Bobble VS.
Taito Memories
Super Space Invaders
Cadash
Camel Try
Puzznic

Regarding the games in the Taito Memories chip...Cadash is an excellent action RPG, Camel Try is a ball+maze game, Puzznic a field-clearing puzzler. These seem all to be coming to the US. Of Sega's games however, only Sonic-N and Super Monkey Ball are mentioned as US releases thus far.

The technical specs of the N-Gage have been revealed, so go check those out. Technically it's the most underpowered, and has the smallest screen of the available portabes. But the back light, built in rechargable battery and wireless networking are rather nice.

Lastly, An article at Nikkei News indicates that many of the networking features will not be available Japan.

February 5, 2003 4:05 PM PST

NECIC US / E-JRW / BS


boka~n

It seems this news has been everywhere for some time now, but took a long time to get to me. NEC is forming a division of NEC Interchannel in the US! Chou lucky! (thanks Comic-Kaze) Whether this will be beneficial for we who desire localized games - remains to be seen. The first title they'll be publishing is Tube Slider for GC, from Nintendo's own subsidiary NdCube. NdCube most recently made F-Zero: Maximum Velocity for GBA. How strange for NEC to be publishing a game from a Nindendo second party...

Regardless, I'm glad they're back, and I hope they bring some nice stuff to the table with them. The ex-VP of Capcom (Clint Kurahashi) will be heading the group.


News: GBA to play anime

February 4, 2003 3:55 PM PST

AM3 / SM / BS


jiiii~

AM3 - the designers of the GBA and GBA-SP have something "new" up their sleeves. They've created a device (aptly named the AM3 Adapter), which will allow media to be viewable on your GBA or GBA-SP via Smart Media Cards. Anime, educational media, original animation and digital comics were mentioned as salable items within these cards. The SMCs will not be writable by the users for 'security reasons', and thus the cards must be purchased individually. The adapter will cost $2,800 yen, blank media cards 2,000 yen (media content must be downloaded from Nintendo for about $5). The AM3 Adapter will be on display at E3. News taken from the Dengeki article.

Another note: this strikes me as more than just a Nintendo vs Gamepark issue here. Toshiba is a main stockholder for Nintendo, and it will be their proprietary SMC which are used. Gamepark supports any SMC, but uses Samsung SMC for their games. Is Toshiba using this to attempt a takeover of the SMC world market from the Koreans? I would not be even slightly shocked.

update! Scott was checking a few other sites. It seems that Gamespot Japan has further info; look to Bandai, Nintendo, Sega among others to provide new materials for the SMC. Also look for Pokemon anime news, video announcements and promotion videos. Download stations should be in a multitude of locations (like internet cafes, electronics shops etc), and perhaps this is what Nintendo means when they say that they're bringing the medium to the world. Using the ARM7 processor within the GBA, files can be compressed to the point where 24 mins of movie are possible on a 32 MB SMC (on the GP32 1 meg=1 minute), and 5 hours of music (that seems nearly impossible, considering they're using MP3). The test sale period will begin in may (after E3) in Japan, and formal distribution is planned for October. The US release will also be in the second half of 2003, the Euro release in erly 2004.

To view my personal opinions on the matter, take a look here.



News: Warrior Blade, Puzzle Bobble

February 4, 2003 3:43 PM PST

Taito / BS


Warrior Blade

It seems as though all characters from the upcoming Taito brawler (that's an odd combo, as I type it) Warrior Blade have been disclosed. Check the section to view all ten of them. I could be wrong though, this could just be the Taito side of the joint project with Titus. Hmmm, I wonder what the chances are that the character on the left will be edited for whatever type of domestic release we may see. Pretty good, I'd say.

Taito has also unveiled a new system element from their Puzzle Bobble 4-player Gamecube extravoganza. Take a look at the bottom of the rules page. Basically as you pop bubbles, if the resultant junk bubbles are of colors which could complete a link elsewhere on the board, said bubbles will automatically fly there, until each chain is complete. Interesting, perhaps difficult to plan, and only available in battle mode. It's nice to see new ideas in the series though.

edit: I'm completely wrong, as this element was used in a past Puzzle Bobble for PSX. Thanks Rid!

Teatime / BS


Toon

Japanese galget makers Teatime have announced that Toon, their latest title will be released on the 14th of February. To comemmorate the announcement, they released a free downloadable minigame, which...we missed out on. The free download window is over. My apologies! But one can still download the opening, or check out the system (hint: click the pics in the system section to see the characters' actions). This game is made with a type of cellshading developed by teatime, which they're calling 'Toon Rendering'. This basically allows for 3D CG to look about 85% indistinguishable from proper 2D cell art. It really does a nice job, I think.

While you're at the Teatime site, might as well download the OP for Maiden Breeder while you're at it - if only because of that name.

Last note - if you've never played a galget or love ADV title, here's something for you. Teatime has a collection of Flash Minigames available for free play. These allow you to have limited conversations and interactions with characters from two of their games. No sound, but still kind of fun.

With the unveiling of the X-box Lite at E3 this year, who's to say how much more will be spent? Slashdot also makes mention of a rumor that Microsoft is keeping a Japanese company afloat at this time, which could explain the recent flood of Sega titles to the X-box, no matter how unprofitable they may be.
