Hey there! Theres the usual load of cash in and mini crap but there are some secksy stuff there too like DEMENTIUM THE FREAKING WARD!! 29th October Cars Mater-National NDS & GBA Region: US Genre: Race-me-do Developer: THQ Publisher: THQ Looking a little better than the last game but still probably be crap this is yet another cash in from THQ. Theres a GBA version too. DS: GBA: El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera Region: US Genre: Action-me-do Developer: THQ Publisher: THQ Another THQ game based on a NickToon, I can't really work out what this game is but it looks a bit meh. You play some kind of Mexican Tiger super hero thing and erm yeah thats it. Ratatouille Food Frenzy Region: US Genre: Cook-me-do Developer: THQ Publisher: THQ THQ use the Ratatouiile license to sell a Cooking Mama rip off. 30th October Barbie as The Island Princess Region: US Genre: Crap-me-do Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision Some kind of adventure/mini game fest of crapness. I looked for screens but fount none but then I looked for ooh a minute. Anyway theres like 28 odd mini games because thats all the rage now with lazy arsehole developers with no imagination or inclination to make a good thing out of a bad license. Bee Movie Game Region: US Genre: mini game-me-do Developer: Vicarious Visions Publisher: Activision Nothing to do with Bee Game, but a cash in on that CGI film that is probably about a bee that goes on some life affirming adventure and discovers that the friends it makes were the things missing in its life...I think, well thats what most of these are about right? As well as the normal adventure theres loads of stupid mini games. IGN says it has a solid 3D engine but is pretty much the same quality as any other game that is aimed at kids...so it sucks ass then. Ben 10: Protector of Earth Region: US Genre: Action Platform-me-do Developer: 1st Playable Productions Publisher: D3 Publisher Another licensed game from some kids tv show. There were screens for the DS knocking about but can't seem to find them. Dr. Suess: How the Grinch Stole Christmas Region: US Genre: Platform-me-do Developer: Black Lantern Publisher: DSI Now the GBC game was pretty good, kinda like Metal Gear Solid but without the neck breaking. This one looks like another cheap DSI game. Prove me wrong guys! Shrek 3: Ogres & Dragons Region: US Genre: Platform-me-do Developer: WayForward Publisher: Activision Yay another crap WayForward game! What happened to the guys behind Shantae? Why can't your games based on shit licenses be more like Sabrina GBC and less like this? Come on guys I know you have talents, I've seen Contra 4 please stop selling out by doing this crap and GO FORWARD you know like your name inclines? Anyway its some kind of Nintendogs game but with Ogres & Dragonkeys. So if you're like 3 years old you might like it. The Simpsons Game Region: US Genre: Platform-me-do Developer: EA Publisher: EA And the crap cash ins continue...no wait...this is apparently really good! Well thank the heavens for that! From the screens it looks like it'll suck balls but the many previews that I've read about this version say its better than the home console versions and that its a really well thought out game. Game styles include platform, strategy & RPG. This DS version of The Simpsons Game has over 2,000 lines of speech and 22 minutes of full-motion video, so expect a hefty cart size. Panzer Tactics DS DELAYED UNTIL THE 5th Region: US Genre: Turn based strat-me-do Developer: Sproing Publisher: 10ticle Been waiting ages for this but it keeps getting delayed all the time. This date has been around for a few months now so lets hope it sticks. Basically its a more realistic take on Advance Wars and set in WWII. People who have played it says its quite deep and plays very well. The game also has weather effects so when it rains you see it rain as well as lightning .Its multiplayer mode lets you challenge your friends via Hotseat mode, LAN or Wi-Fi, and collect important points for the Panzer Tactics DS online Highscore Ladder. Sounds like an awful lot has gone into this game, could be the best strategy title on the DS, if it goes well then Advance Wars: Days of Ruin looks to be a bit redundant when it comes out. Video Link OMG: Our Mini Games 26 Region: US Genre: Mini game-me-do Developer: Dreams Interactive Publisher: UFO Interactive Huzzah another crap mini game compilation! Matchstick Puzzle Region: Europe Genre: Puzzle-me-do Developer: Ertain Publisher: Mercury Games Puzzle game with matchsticks 31st October Region: US Genre: Survival Horror FPS-me-do Developer: Renegade Kid Publisher: Gamecock A ROM has already been dumped of this...hurrah! Excuse me while I wet myself. I've been wanting this game since I saw it announced earlier this year, every month I've seen more and more of this and it looks better and better! I've been waiting for a proper FPS game for the DS (MPH was good but kinda limited) and I've wanted a proper horror DS title (RE was good but dated). This should satisfy my gaming needs. So far previews have said that its awesome. They say when you plug the headphones in its actually scary, which is hard to believe with a DS title but lets wait and see. They say the puzzles are very good and aren't there to lengthen the game. They say it plays exactly how it should and that the framerate is excellent throughout. Nice to see a developer treat a DS game like they would for any home console and push the DS's hardware and also exalts to Gamecock for publishing this game and not asking the developers to alter it in anyway. Looks like its Silent Hill meets Doom and from the videos it looks like its got some of the best atmospheric sound on the DS to date. Video Link Ankh: Curse of the Scarab King Region: Europe Genre: Adventure-me-do Developer: Deck13 Publisher: Xider Based on the PC series that I've never heard of this is apparently a point and click adventure title! Looks pretty enough to me, lets hope it plays well. The DS version aims to remain loyal to the popular franchise, with brave young adventurer Assil returning alongside fellow characters Thara, Pharaoh and Osiris: God of the Underworld for another Ankh-related quest. This was actually released a few months back, I even saw it on the shelves in Virgin Megastores but it has magically disappeared so perhaps it was only a limited release back then. 1st November Garfield Gets Real Region: US Genre: Platform-me-do Developer: Gravity Publisher: DSI Now I actually kinda enjoyed Garfield 2 DS thought I'll never wanna play it again it was ok. Garfields Nightmare was a decent platformer too. This one is by DSI...oh dear. Well erm lets wait and see how this turns out. Ok the game is apparently in full 3D with and you use the stylus to control Garfield and has an astonishing 7 levels! Holy crap!!! Theres no screenshots which is weird because DSI usually have them on their website so perhaps it looks like an early Amiga 3D game that has the word 4D in the title. Dragon Tamer Sound Spirit Region: Japan Genre: RPG-me-do Developer: Namco Bandai Publisher: Namco Bandai Pretty interesting game. An RPG where you collect dragons. Looks Pokemony but the interesting thing is that to get these dragons you record stuff using the DS mic, and according to the pitch and that it creates a dragon for you. Be nice to see how this works and if its any good lets hope for a release outside of Japan. Video Link San Goku Shi 2 Region: Japan Genre: RTS-me-do Developer: Namco Bandai Publisher: Namco Bandai Another Romance of the Three Kingdoms game for the DS. Also out is Zaidan Houjin Nippon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Koushiki Soft: 250-Mannin no KanKen. Boogie Region: Europe Genre: Dance-me-do Developer: EA Publisher: EA So another dance game for the DS except you tap and not dance. And the mic is in use too so thats erm nice. Paint By DS Region: Europe/Australia Genre: Paint-me-do Developer: EA Publisher: EA A English version of Kokoro wo Yasumeru Otona no Nurie DS. Looks meh. And thats your lot, some really meh looking games in there and some really awesome ones. More awesome games next week too, good times! Sadly the crap will still come as its near Xmas and well companies like teh moniez. Coming Soon The Runaway 2 Region: Europe Genre: Adventure-me-do Developer: Cyanide Publisher: Focus Home Interactive Released:TBA '07 Thought I'd cover something thats actually coming out this year in English. This title is a port of the apparently pretty good adventure game The Runaway - The Dream of the Turtle. Its a point and click adventure game like the ones LucasArts made before they had to release everything under the name "Star Wars". In Alaska, Hawaii, under the sea or up in the sky, in the middle of a hostile jungle or on board a huge yacht, you will experience an unforgettable adventure in a rich and varied environment. The game is filled with juicy puzzles and exciting challenges which can be solved more or less easily depending on the player's level. Lets hope its a winner. http://uk.media.ds.ign.com/media/142/14212713/vids_1.html]Video Link://http://uk.media.ds.ign.com/media/14...html]Video Link://http://uk.media.ds.ign.com/media/14...html]Video Link://http://uk.media.ds.ign.com/media/14...html]Video Link://http://uk.media.ds.ign.com/media/14...html]Video Link As usual for god sake wait for a dump of a game, even if its be released a few days ago just wait ok? Also publishers mostly suck as so expect games to slip to another date.
