Teaser Video

I am now undecided on whether I'm going to cover the whole game yet. Here is a teaser video I made trying it out with my iPhone. As you can see it looks really good, but I can't keep my hands steady enough to hold the phone.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

Coverage of Pokémon White starting soon!

Well, as promised, I am going to be recording videos of my copy of Pokémon White during my playthrough and uploading them to YouTube. I'll be posting the videos here.

Let me know if there is anything you want to see specifically so I can be sure to put it on here. I'm sure since you are my only reader you will get great joy and spread the love around the net of my blog!

Happy times. I thought I was going to have the game already because I was already charged, but Play-Asia isn't shipping it out until Saturday. The earliest I could have it is Monday...but I'll be at work all day.

I'm sure yall will see coverage everywhere else, but I've always wanted to do something like this, but never had the right equipment. I recorded a video earlier this year with my iPhone of Pokémon SoulSilver's Arceus event, and it seemed to turn out okay.

I got Trauma Team

Yay, it finally arrived. I own Trauma Center 1, 2, and New Blood, and I liked them despite the stupid alien viruses and the time limit. This game does it more like Phoenix Wright with more story involved with 6 different doctors. I heard the last Chapter of the game utilizes each characters talents. Gonna go play when I finish my dinner!

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies hitting NA July 11, EUR July 23

Character Customization, Cooperative Multiplayer Adventuring and an Epic Story Make for a One-of-a-Kind Nintendo DS Experience

REDMOND, Wash., May 19, 2010 - Launching in the United States on July 11, DRAGON QUEST® IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies™ for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems lets players enjoy an adventure that is entirely their own, yet can be shared with others anywhere, anytime. Developed by Square Enix Co., Ltd., this game has already become a phenomenon with players of all ages and backgrounds in Japan, with more than 4.2 million units sold.

Before setting off on their adventure, players can create their own heroes, deciding how they would like their face, hair and clothing to look. As the story unfolds, players become stronger, smarter and more powerful, and can customize companions who join their group. Players will have fun discovering more than 1,000 pieces of clothing, armor, weapons and other items that will provide them with a unique appearance and special abilities. Players can also change the class of their character at any time, choosing from a variety of vocations that will affect their abilities and strengths in the game.

In DRAGON QUEST IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, players begin their adventure as a city guardian who is sent to retrieve a sacred tree's fruits, which have the power to grant wishes. Players travel the world, conquer fearsome monsters and unravel an epic storyline. During their journey, players will encounter mighty opponents in fast-paced battles, and also interact with a colorful cast of characters.

DRAGON QUEST IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies contains special modes that let players share their adventure with others, allowing up to four players to team up via a local wireless connection and experience the fun of tackling challenging monsters and dungeons cooperatively with their own characters. Players can even leave the game active in their backpacks, pockets or purses and still interact with other players via an interactive "Tag Mode." Information about players' characters can be wirelessly transmitted to others, and treasure maps and customized greetings can be exchanged automatically by players who come within range of one another when their games are set to Tag Mode.

Players looking to enjoy a variety of different game activities can take on special side quests. Some of these quests will be earned by progressing through the game, while additional quests will be made available for free download for players with broadband Internet access after the game launches, providing hours of additional content for virtual adventurers to enjoy either on their own or with friends. Some downloadable quests will continue the main storyline of the game, while others offer standalone missions.

"DRAGON QUEST IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies is one of the biggest games ever to hit Nintendo DS, with an incredible amount of content for every kind of player to enjoy," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "This new game has all of the elements of an instant classic: customization options, a great story, and the ability to share a nearly limitless experience with friends."

I got Fragile Dreams & Bayonetta

They finally arrived. Originally I bought Fragile on Ebay on March 31st, and it never came. I filed a claim and got my money back almost a month later. Anyway, I ordered it again (May 3rd) and this time it arrived. I bought Bayonetta from as they were having a sale on it for $29.99. Gonna try and play both tonight ^_^

Photo Dojo is free on DSiWare from May 10th until June 10th. After that it will cost 200 Nintendo DSi Points. Go get it!

Perler Bead Sprites

So, lately I've been making game sprites using perler beads (aka melty beads). You place them on a grid and run an iron over them until they melt together. It's pretty simple, but I spent like around $50 just buying the beads online (like $10 shipping ><). I didn't even buy any Red, Green, or Yellow colors so I can't make Pikachu or much.

I'm having a lot of fun making these. The concept may sound easy, but what takes the longest is putting them together on the boards. Someone at work wants to buy the Raccoon Mario one I made. I'm thinking about selling them on Ebay, but I need to get lots of beads and make a variety of sprites first.

It's been a long while...

Hi! Remember me?

Well, I haven't posted on this blog in a long while. Sorry I've been sort of busy with my life. Sold my car, got another one, and already damaged it too. I've only been playing Pokémon SoulSilver since the day of release. I got Red Steel 2 from a trading site called Goozex, just won a copy of Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon on Ebay, and bought Bayonetta from

They are having a sale on certain 360/PS3 games Nier $44.99; Darksiders, Final Fantasy 13, Bayonetta, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Alien vs Predator, and Metro 2033 are all $29.99 each.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 also comes out on May 23rd. is doing a $20 credit deal on your next purchase when you preorder the game from them, so be sure to hop on that. If you buy Trauma Team before May 18th you'll receive a $10 credit from them as well.

3D Dot Game Heroes also releases in a few days, May 11th on the PS3. It's an RPG that is very nostalgic of classic NES/SNES and other games from that era. You can even design your own characters to look like Link!

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor was pushed back in the US until June 27th from June 7th, because of the delay of Metroid Other M which has been pushed back to August 31st. The game is still set for release in Europe in just 3 days, May 7th.

Next month is E3, so we'll get to see the Nintendo 3DS, Zelda Wii, Vitality Sensor, and hopefully Golden Sun DS. I hope we see localization news of Zangeki no Reginleiv, the Hotel Dusk sequel, Xenoblade (Monado got a name change), The Last Story, Pokémon Ranger 3 and finally PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure.

Jam With The Band is finally being released after 5 years of being cancelled in the past, but only announced in Europe. Picross 3D came out today for the DS in the US.

XSEED Games is bringing over Prope's next game Ivy the Kiwi to the US for DS & Wii this Summer. It turns out hackers already discovered the game has an English version built in, but of course they had to hack to bring it out. Maybe that's why the turn around is so quick?

Also, Arc Rise Fantasia is being released on June 22nd in the US and Ignition is doing a terrible job on localization with the horrendous voice acting. I've heard this isn't the first time they've messed up.

So yeah that's all I can think of to report for news and my ranting and stuff. I also really love the iPhone, I bought a Pokédex app for it called AAAA Pokédex, yall should get it too!

New Ghost Trick Trailer

This game looks awesome. It's supposed to be released this fall, so I hope we see more about the game soon!

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I got Endless Ocean: Blue World & Miles Edgeworth

After a month of not buying any video games, I finally decided to splurge. Had to get them at GameStop though, they don't carry either of them at my local Best Buy apparently. (That just ticks me off!)

So far I played a bit of Endless Ocean 2 and it's alright. I just have to remember it's supposed to be a relaxing game. I went on WiFi with my good friend Kolma and just screwed around a bit. We could barely hear eachother on Wii Speak though...which is a bit disappointing.

Nintendo's Spring 2010 Media Summit Roundup


Nintendo Announces Launch Dates for Nintendo DSi XL,Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 24, 2010 – Nintendo of America issued a surge of new information today about what consumers can expect from the company in the coming months. Let's get right to it:
  • The new Nintendo DSi XL™ hand-held system launches March 28 at a suggested retail price of $189.99. The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL are 93 percent larger than those of the Nintendo DS™ Lite model, providing a more vivid and engaging play experience. The screens of the Nintendo DSi XL also feature a wider viewing angle, letting friends and family members join the fun. The new system launches in both Burgundy and Bronze colors, and comes loaded with pre-installed premium software Brain Age™ Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock, as well as two free applications: the Nintendo DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio™. Nintendo DSi XL will also come with a larger pen-like stylus that allows for a more comfortable grip and enhanced ease of use when playing games that use the Nintendo DS touch screen. America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking and WarioWare™: D.I.Y. will also launch for the Nintendo DS family of products on March 28, providing consumers with new content that can be enjoyed on any Nintendo DS system. Games like these demonstrate the enhanced experience available with the Nintendo DSi XL.

  • Super Mario Galaxy™ 2, the sequel to the smash-hit galaxy-hopping original game, launches May 23 for the Wii™ console. The game includes the amazing gravity-defying, physics-based exploration from the first game, but is loaded with entirely new galaxies and features to challenge and delight players. On some stages, Mario™ can pair up with his dinosaur buddy Yoshi™ and use his tongue to grab items and spit them back at enemies. Players can also have fun with new items such as a drill that lets our hero tunnel through solid rock.

  • Metroid™: Other M, the incredible new Metroid game developed for Wii through a collaboration by Nintendo and the world-renowned Team Ninja, launches June 27. The game looks at the classic franchise from a new perspective: While much of the game is reminiscent of 2-D side-scrollers, players can switch the perspective into 3-D at any time as they explore the twisting passages of a derelict space station and delve deep into a cinematic, never-before-told story of bounty hunter Samus Aran's past. This new approach uses a new control scheme in which players use the Wii Remote™ controller held sideways to battle enemies and navigate the expansive, gorgeous environments in classic Metroid fashion, then aim at the screen with the Wii Remote pointer to blast foes in first-person and hunt the world for clues and hidden passages.

  • In a unique partnership with Square-Enix, Nintendo of America will publish Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies in the Americas when the game arrives in summer 2010. Dragon Quest IX has sold more than 4.15 million copies in the Japanese market. Nintendo and Square-Enix will now work together to bring this title to the Nintendo DS consumer base in the Americas.

  • Capcom's Monster Hunter® Tri, an epic action game for Wii, launches in the United States on April 20. The game lets players customize their character, armor and weapons in order to protect a town from majestic monsters as that town rebuilds following a devastating earthquake. Online play will be available for all players with broadband Internet access at no additional cost. Online text chat is fully functional and online voice chat is enabled using the Wii Speak™ microphone, which is sold separately. At a suggested retail price of $59.99, limited quantities of Monster Hunter Tri will include the new Black Classic Controller Pro™, while both Black and White versions of the controller will be available separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99. The game will also be available without a controller at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

  • Sin and Punishment: Star Successor, the breakthrough shooter game for Wii from legendary developer Treasure, will launch across North America on June 7. The game features nonstop action with two playable characters and international online leaderboards to track high scores. Using the Wii Remote pointer functionality, the game offers unprecedented precision in the shooter genre.

  • FlingSmash™ for Wii will test players' Wii Remote skills as they bounce a ball-like hero through countless side-scrolling stages, combining the precision of racket sports with the unpredictable fun of pinball. Playable only with the Wii MotionPlus™ accessory, the game will launch this summer.

  • Picross 3D is poised to become a puzzle game phenomenon when it launches for the Nintendo DS family of products on May 3. In Picross 3D, players start with a cube and smash away smaller blocks to reveal an object, shape or symbol. Delivering more than 350 unique puzzles and more made available for download on a regular basis after launch via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service (broadband Internet access required), the game takes the mind-bending fun of Picross into the next dimension.

  • 100 Classic Books transforms the Nintendo DS family of products into a library of timeless literature when it launches on June 14 at a suggested retail price of $19.99, highlighted by 100 works from authors such as William Shakespeare, Jules Verne, Jane Austen, Mark Twain and more. Readers can adjust the size of text, place bookmarks and even download new content via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service (broadband Internet connection required).

  • Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands™ from Ubisoft will launch May 18 on both the Wii and Nintendo DS platforms. Boasting amazing graphics with fantastic action and puzzle-solving game play, the Wii version will be the first in franchise history to feature a two-player cooperative experience. As an added bonus, the Wii version of the game will exclusively include the 1992 Super NES™ version of the original Prince of Persia game.

  • Disney Guilty Party is the official title of the highly anticipated first collaboration between Disney Interactive Studios and its recently acquired studio, Wideload Games. The fun and hilarious mystery party game is set for release in the second half of 2010, exclusively for Wii.

  • Majesco's Nintendo DSi exclusive Ghostwire: Link to the Paranormal uses incredible augmented reality technology through the Nintendo DSi Camera. Launching this October, the game lets players become a ghost hunter as they interact with the paranormal.
Nintendo also announced a variety of games available to download directly to the Wii console from the Wii Shop Channel via the WiiWare™ service, and directly to the Nintendo DS via the DSi Shop and DSiWare™ services. For WiiWare:
  • Launching on March 1, Capcom's Mega Man™ 10 builds upon the huge impact of Mega Man 9, a completely new adventure rendered in classic 8-bit style. This new game looks and sounds as awesomely retro as its predecessor.

  • Launching on March 8, Max & the Magic Marker from Press Play turns the Wii Remote into an orange magic marker that's literally magic. Players draw lines and objects to help Max reach objects and his ultimate goal.

  • The long-awaited indie cult classic Cave Story comes to WiiWare with new game play, artwork and music enhancements on March 22. It's classic gaming reborn for 2010.

  • Launching on March 29, WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase is a standalone product exclusive to the WiiWare service and available only from the Wii Shop Channel. The game contains more than 70 new microgames and features interoperability with the WarioWare: D.I.Y. game for the Nintendo DS family of products. Players that own both games can transfer content between the two via a local wireless connection, and can even play user-created microgames on their television using WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase.

  • As the techno music pulses, Nintendo's Art Style™: light trax™ puts players in charge of a white beam of light as it engages in a surreal race against other beams across a dark track. Players must keep away from obstacles, use items and look for power boosts if they want to finish first. Art Style: light trax launches this spring.

  • Swim and spin through the primordial ooze in Nintendo's Art Style: Rotozoa™ as you absorb tiny organisms that match the colors of your tentacles. As you absorb more organisms, your tentacles grow. The challenge increases as additional tentacles are gained, but power-ups can help you survive and thrive. Art Style: Rotozoa launches this spring.

  • Launching this spring, Rage of the Gladiator from Ghostfire Games is an intense fighting game that asks players to perfect their well-timed moves against an array of opponents. The game is compatible with the Wii MotionPlus accessory.

  • Launching this spring, And Yet It Moves from Broken Rules requires players to rotate the world to help their line-drawn protagonist progress. Walls become floors and floors become ceilings in this surreal twist on the platformer genre.

  • Launching this summer, Independent Games Festival Seumas McNally Grand Prize Finalist Super Meat Boy from Team Meat sets a cube of meat off on an adventure to save Princess Bandage. This off-the-wall game is not for the faint of heart.
For Nintendo DSiWare:
  • Nintendo's Photo Dojo™ is poised to be the cult hit of 2010 when it launches this spring. The game first asks players to pose for 13 pictures and input 10 sound effects. Once that's done, the player becomes the main character in a hilarious side-scrolling fighting game. Create up to eight characters and do battle alone or against a friend on a single Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL system.

  • Launching this spring, Nintendo's Metal Torrent™ delivers a frantic barrage of gunfire that fills the screen. Players try to convert opponents' bullets into cubes that, when collected, increase their score and fill an energy meter that powers special weapons. Online Leaderboards record scores and movies of top games.

  • Launching this spring, X-Scape™ from Nintendo immerses players in an exploratory adventure involving more than 20 planets. Players will pilot their tank through 3-D tunnels, fire at enemies and even battle ancient weapons that resemble giant robots.

"Nintendo finished 2009 with a bang, and we're continuing our momentum into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "With Nintendo DSi XL, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M coming in the first six months of the year, we're making sure all our fans have great game content to enjoy year-round."

New Pokémon Silhouette shown on Pokémon Sunday

In Japan, there is a Pokémon talk show where they talk about news, events, and have battles. It's called Pokémon Sunday. Today they revealed the silhouette of a new Pokémon that will probably be introduced in the upcoming film this summer. Here it you think it is an evolution or a new Pokémon altogether?

What are some good game songs to turn into ringtones?

Recently, I discovered how to make my own ringtones for my iPhone. So far I have turned a portion of Vs. Ho-oh (from Pokemon HG/SS), Pursuit Overturn (from Ace Attorney 4), and Dandelion Rider (from Let's Tap) into ringtones. What else should I turn into a ringtone?

Friday, February 5, 2010

Trauma Team Walkthrough: Orthopedics

Atlus released their trailer for the Othopedics part of Trauma Team for the Wii. The game has been delayed from April 20th to May 18th. I have a feeling this is because Atlus wants the game to be successful and not get overlooked by the flood of games being released in March. Anyway, check out the trailer below:

Nintendo opens Teaser sites for Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Metroid Other M

Today Nintendo opened 3 teaser websites for the games Xenoblade, The Last Story, and METROID Other M.

Xenoblade is the new name for the Monolithsoft RPG that Nintendo revealed at E3 last year originally called Monado: Beginning of the World.

The Last Story is an RPG for the Wii that Mistwalker (the developers behind the Japan-only A.S.H.) has been working on for a while now. A trademark for the game was filed a few months ago.

METROID Other M according to Nintendo is set to release this Summer in Japan. There is still no North American, European, or Australian release set, but are due for this year.
Nintendo's 1st party lineup was revealed, and you can see it here.

Last Window: Midnight Promise & Zangeki no Reginleiv have not appeared on the release list outside of Japan, as well as Chibi Robo 2 for the DS. However, since it is only the beginning of the year this list will change throughout.

Hoshi no Kirby (Wii) and Famicom Wars DS 2 once again appear on the Japanese release list, but still the former has not been revealed. Famicom Wars DS 2 came to the US as Advance Wars: Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict(EUR). I think it's safe to say it isn't going to be released in Japan.

I got Tatsunoko VS Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

Well I decided to buy it today instead of tomorrow. So awesome, even played an online match with two friends. It was surprisingly not too laggy like it is in Brawl. Yall should definitely support this game!

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I got No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

One of the top contenders for Wii 3rd Party Game of the Year has just now been released on the Wii. The sequel to the hit No More Heroes is now on store shelves. Tatsunoko VS Capcom is out now too, and has new characters & online play! Be sure to pick that up as well. I'm gonna buy it this Saturday.

Friday, January 22, 2010

I got Sands of Destruction!

Well, I finally got Sands of Destruction in the mail from Amazon. It took a while because I chose free shipping, and I also got the game for $23.99 because I had a $10 off coupon ^_^

I took a picture of it with my iPhone 3GS:

This game is really cool, yall should definitely give it a try if you are into old-school style RPGs. I definitely haven't had much fun with an RPG other than Pokémon & Golden Sun in many many years. Definitely check this one out guys!

Tatsunoko VS Capcom Trading Cards

While I was reading my latest issue of Nintendo Power (Feb 2010), I ended up finding a cool lenticular trading card for Tatsunoko VS Capcom for the Wii. It turns out, if you preorder the game at GameStop they will give you a 8-card pack of the cards. Here is the Chun-Li/Jun the Swan card:

I already imported the original Tatsunoko VS Capcom game in December 2008 when it came out in Japan. The new game isn't simply a localization, but a brand new version of the original, that also includes online play and some new characters. Essentially it's like how Capcom released newer versions of Street Fighter games.

I really do wish I could get a pack of cards but the game isn't a priority to me right now as I want No More Heroes 2 and also got a speeding ticket.

You can see more pics of the cards at my friends site:

Happy New Year!!!

Just want to wish the 5 people who probably read my blog a Happy New Year 2010! Goodbye 2009, you really sucked for me!

Anyways, we celebrated our Christmas on the 31st. Here is what I got:

I took a bunch of pictures with the iPhone at the Sugarland Town Square event. They premiered some new 3D Projection Technology from The Netherlands there, it was really awesome. If you wanna see them I put just a few on my facebook page. :)
