Haven't seen this posted yet, so lock if old...yada yada yada....

-Info on Raving Rabbids 2..one minigame uses the wiimote ala a cell phone in a movie theater and you have to put the phone down real quick when the ushers come by. Then you text the other rabbids to get them busted. Another had you using the waiter pose from WarioWare and balance a sammich and delivering it to the "Rabbid Godfather" without dropping it. A couple screens are shown, looks about the same graphically as the first game.

-Says the Geometry Wars will be a Wii-exclusive and will be a full fledged game with an extensive single player campaign.

-Says on 5-22(tomorrow) smashbro.com will go live and have a daily blog update from director Sakurai himself on the titles progress and other topices. They make a lame attempt at humor saying he will reveal Fabio as a newcomer....

-Says will have exclusive info on Soul Calibur Legends next month.

Cover Story is the Resident Evil games with a first look at UC. Also says the PS2 exclusive parts from RE4 are not straight ports but are redone with the Gamecube engine allowing for better lighting and textures. Hopefully that will put the debate to rest...

-Has a preview for Madden 08 featuring online showing a screenshot showing a lobby, leaderbords, and my profile. One screen looks to have some sort of Mii usage, I'm guessing avatar-only.

Reviews:
Mario Party 8--7.5
Mortal Kombat--8.0
Pirates otC--4.5
Spiderman3--6.0

Next month Big Brain Wii,Tomb Raider, Soul Calibur, and Sqeenix party info

EDIT--Forgot to mention there is also a preview of some of the various mini-games of Mario Party 8. Many are similarly controlled ala WarioWare. The is also a mode called "Extras Zone" minigames 8 in total, 4 unlockable. They show 4 of them being similar to wii-bowling, a table tennis game they say controlls like wii tennis, a moded racing game, and something called variety pack. This seems to be random puzzle games. Also in this mode you can use Mii's instead of Mario characters.

And their redesign was pretty nice, too... sure because of the internet (and some other factors) it can never be the early '90s NP again, but still, it shouldn't be canceled. :(

I've always thought that it was great that Nintendo had its own in-house magazine... and more independent than Sierra's old InterAction, too. :)

Are you basing that off of this thread, or do you have the magazine. If the former, then you are sad.


NP is a good kids magazine. When I was young I really liked it, I hope when they remodel it they make it a little better for the adult Nintendo fan.

Is this the first of many exclusive franchises that will be lost from the 360 for the Wii?

Or is Bizarre simply hoping that people will pay $30-50 for an XBLA game?

Ada Missions is redone with GameCube assets? Now this IS a sweet up-port.

And still budget price?
All they have to do is tell me they confirmed some additions to Mercenaries mode (since I know they didnt add any in-game content) and this is a sure-fire purchase.

I hope the smash site has more than just a blog added.

the last Nintendo Power issue I bought was the niGHTS JOD cover. Previously, I think the only one I bought was one of the post-E3 pre-launch issues for information. Its not a magazine I hate or anything and Im kinda sad to see it go after so many years.

Im definitely getting Mario party 8 though. Having enjoyed 6 and 7 immensely with my friends, Im looking forward to it. My roomate, well she practically worships Mario Party and would raid nintendo HQ if it were delayed again.

I downloaded the Xbox 360 demo. It felt like I was playing a really bad PSX game with some gloss.

I only gave it a quick skim over, but I didn't see anything we didn't already know. Says there are only 2 weapons as of right now, a pistol and a shotgun. They said they would be adding grenades and the like, but were unsure about other firearms. Though I really can't see them only having the 2. Says there will not be any "hidden" branching paths, they will all be obvious when you come to them. The fire button is mapped to the "A" button, but they say it becomes second nature very quickly. Almost everything is destructible and the fountain statue from the Mansion can be destroyed for hidden power ups inside.

As for Madden visuals, they looked about the same as 07. Maybe a tad better.
