The return of my Peabody-winning monthly column, Wii/DS Games of the Month! Yes, I'm posting early, but it's better to post before February begins and I have midterms for most of next week. I was also board and I get endless enjoyment from writing longs editorials. You can read the Wii version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth Developed by: Capcom Published by: Capcom, THQ (Australia) Release date: February 16th (America), February 19th (Europe) Genre: Adventure My Hype Level: I guess GBAtemp Hype Level: Pretty high I've never been one for the point and click adventures, but Ace Attorney isn't that bad. Miles Edgeworth is the next installment in the series and promises the same point and click fun as previous Ace Attorney titles with a crop of new features. I still haven't even gotten through the first Ace Attorney, so I may pass on this one for a while, but I know a lot of you guys and girls are looking forward to this puppy. Ragnarok DS Developed by: GungHo Works Published by: GungHo Works, XSeed (America) Release date: February 16th Genre: Action RPG My Hype Level: Tried the Japanese version, wasn't all too fun GBAtemp Hype Level: They lack Ragnarok I still have no fucking clue what Ragnarok is. I've never heard of it until now. Anyway, this is another Ragnarok game, but it isn't really taking after its MMORPG aspects (I mean, no DS game can be a MMORPG). Still, it is an ARPG and does feature online multiplayer, so maybe it'll get a relatively popular following like PS0. I myself gave a run of the Japanese version with a translation patch and I found it kinda boring. I'll probably try it again when it's released, though. Puzzle Chronicles Developed by: Infinite Interactive Published by: Konami Release date: February 2nd Genre: Puzzle My Hype Level: May just bring me to death's door with starvation and malnutrition GBAtemp Hype Level: Never heard of this... I never really heard about this game, so I kinda thought it was just shitty shovelware again. Until I noticed it was made by the same guys who did the incredibly addicting Puzzle Quest series (most notably Challenge of the Warlords) and I instantly became giddy. Puzzle Quest was possibly the most addicting game I've played in years. I played it for days, eating little to nothing. I lost pounds playing that game, people. If you're like me, odds are you'll be just as excited I am about this game, since they've got an awesome team behind it. Dementium II Developed by: Renegade Kid Published by: SouthPeak Interactive Release date: February 16th delayed Genre: FPS My Hype Level: Too pussy to play the first, too chickenshit to try the second GBAtemp Hype Level: It's got a news thread at least Sorry, it got delayed. I'll comment on it in April. Scene It! Twilight Developed by: Screenlife Published by: Konami Release date: February 9th Genre: Trivia My Hype Level: I want to suuuuck... GBAtemp Hype Level: HOLY FUCK TWILIGHT IS THE DUMBEST SHIT EVER Could they not keep Scene It games to your DVD player? Anyway, this is the first Scene It game for a handheld, but unfortunately it has to be Twilight. Puke, barf, etc. While the game itself is pretty much USDA-certified shitty, I am interested to see the amount of video they have. Well, it's not like I'll actually play the game to see. Odds are they'll have an incredibly small amount of questions and video. KORG DS-10 Plus Developed by: Cavia/AQ Interactive Published by: XSeed Games Release date: February 16th Genre: Music My Hype Level: I'm white, aka I have no rhythm, and I also can't play music GBAtemp Hype Level: Probably the same as me The original KORG DS-10 got some good reviews, and this is supposed to be all that and a bag of chips. It's essentially a music creator, so any of our music experts here may get a kick out of it. For people like me, though, who have absolutely no musical talent, they'll probably pass. If you're interested though, you can pick up the original KORG DS-10 and give it a try, since I have no idea what it's like. Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing Developed by: Sumo Digital Published by: SEGA Release date: February 23rd Genre: Racing My Hype Level: Another Sonic license butchering? GBAtemp Hype Level: Fuck, another Sonic game? This seems to be SEGA's take on Mario Kart, although they do bring in other SEGA characters, like Billy Hatcher and Beat from Jet Set Radio. The confirmed list right now is still kinda small, but given SEGA's extensive library of characters, who knows? If they give me Jack from MadWorld on his bike in the Wii version, I'll love this game forever. Still, it really does come off as another butchering of Sonic's license. And this poor hedgehog has been through the ringer too many times. On another note, WHY THE FUCK DOES SONIC NEED A CAR??? His name is "Sonic" after all! He's supposed to be super fast, faster than any of the little karts in this game can go! Sheesh. Other titles - Dragonball Origins 2 (Japan): 2/11 - Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D game (too lazy to copy/paste the long title) (America): 2/6 Overall Summary Not a big month, but the DS is generally having an off year outside of some big titles. Still, we do get quite a few fun games to play around with, and the best game ever: Scene It! Twilight. That was sarcasm, I'm not a Twilight fan who wears Tim Burton's hand-me-downs. Puzzle Chronicles is probably my choice of the month, though. I could lose a few pounds anyway. Next month is HUUUUUUGE. Tons of English releases. Infinite Space, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, and Pokemon. Not to mention a bunch of other big titles, including the Sonic Collection, Monster Rancher DS, and Again. Prepare for the server crash, people. Have a fun February everyone!
