Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it, and definitely had a good time in terms of the singleplayer mode. Apart from a length that overstayed its welcome, the difficulty curve was right where it needed to be and most of the tweaks that had been made to the PS2 formulary were good ones.

Wii's Virtual Console imports not worth the wait

Since purchase, my Wii has seen very little action. Extremely little. The layer of dust on it is ridiculous. When a few import titles made their way to the Virtual Console, I was intrigued.  My first purchases from Nintendo's offerings, I downloaded Sin & Punishment and Super Mario Bros: the Lost Levels.

Vanillaware weekend goes awry

This weekend was Vanillaware weekend for me, and you know what? These guys rock the 2D art, but wow... They don't craft the kind of gameplay I want to spend time with.

Interview with Metanet's Mare Sheppard, co-creator of N

Mare Sheppard and Raigan Burns

At the recent Penny Arcade Expo, a small table in the back corner of the exhibition hall had a long line of people waiting to try a game that looked like a few pixels thrown onto a blank screen. It was stunning, to say the least. Metanet reveals all about their upcomig hit, N.
