I can't wait to hack and slash my way to happiness in Diablo III. As such, we've been keeping our eyes peeled for some new screenshots from Blizzard. Well, Over at CVG, they got their hands on a host of new screens. Hooray!
Check them out here.
Nintendo to show off new Zelda, Mario Galaxy 2 and Vitality Sensor at E3 (Posted by: Harrison)
In not-so surprising news, Nintendo announced during their investor meeting that they plan to show off the next Zelda Wii title, Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M (deep breaths, Harrison) and the previously announced Vitality Sensor at E3 2010. Hopefully that last item on the list is actually cleared up with many Wii owners as I am still scratching my head as to what future titles will enable it or what it will benefit during gameplay. No word on other titles or gadgets from the meeting were disclosed. We'll just have to wait til June until we can see what Nintendo has up their sleeves.
Rebellion's David Brikley calls out developers using on-disk DLC unlocks (Posted by: Kyle)
Let's be honest...we've all seen it. You pay your money to get the latest DLC for your new game, excitedly click the download now button, and BAM! Download finished. At first you're excited because the download is already done and you can start playing the new content. But then you think hmm.... that was fast considering I just spent $10 on this. So you get curious and look at what you just downloaded. 126kb of shiny new content. That's when you realize what you just paid for was already on the disk! What a rip off!
Well, a developer is finally stepping forward and talking about this problem. In a recent interview with SPOnG, Rebellion's David Brikley said he agrees with gamers. (more after the break)
Wonder what Zelda HD would look like? Well, here's some FAKE screens (Posted by: Harrison)
As we wait patiently for Nintendo to release the first bits of information regarding their next Zelda Wii title, Kotaku was able to post some fake screens made by man named, Ryu-Gi. The Zelda fan used Garry's Mod, a PC utility which allows users to import and edit game characters within Valve's Source engine. With the program, he was able to create an HD version of what appears to be the Twilight Princess model for the Wii. Although this is fan-made, you have to wonder if Nintendo is going to keep this art style or continue with a much older Link.
Hit the Kotaku link to see Link and the Zelda universe in HD, a style which we might not see in the pending sequel.
Well, this just put a huge smile on my face. Capcom recently announced on their Unity Blog that the previously-Japanese exclusive Mega Man Zero Collection will be coming to North America on the Nintendo DS by the end of summer; plus, it's going for a great price too. You hear that? That's the sound of Mega Man fans rejoicing. The collection will include four titles with all new modes to boot. This puts me a in good mood, which means I won't be frustrated with Mega Man 10 on Xbox Live Arcade for the entirety of the year.

Today, Sony finally confirmed the release date for the much anticipated God of War III. Both the standard version of the game, and the Ultimate Edition, (which includes pandora's box, an art book, game soundtrack and bonus digital content,) will hit the shelves on March 16th in North America.
Sony also confirmed the box art (left) today, an ultra close-up of a fierce looking Kratos.
As a Wii owner, I have to be honest, the classic controller is hit or miss with certain Virtual Console titles. Sometimes the set-up is deadon, while others (i.e. N64 titles) leave you wanting to same grip you had when you first picked up a N64 controller. No worries though as Nintendo has announced the North American release of the Classic Controller Pro, and it's black too.
Japanese gamers have had the fortunate time with this controller for awhile, so it makes sense for Nintendo to finally pony up and release a better version of their original classic controller release. The Classic Controller Pro is basically the same design but with grips on the bottom, a set of extra shoulder buttons on the back and a cord that comes out of the top instead of the bottom. (Yes, the Dreamcast controller had this but we forgive Sega from time-to-time).
But, that's not all folks. The Classic Controller Pro will be bundled with the release of Monster Hunter Tri for a price of $59.99, so you'll be able to test out this bad boy when the Japanese mega-hit is shipped. The controller will also be sold separately for a price of $19.99. No firm release date has been confirmed, but Gameshoe will announce it when we hear more.
Have you found the light? No? Then let the former child-star of growing pains Kirk Cameron show you the way... interactively! No that's not a sex joke... it's a video game joke. That's right, Left Behind is finally coming to Xbox 360 and Wii. What, no love for the PS3? Playstation users are well-known satanists anyway, so that's probably for the best.
In a recent statement, Inspired Media Entertainment, the publisher of the Left Behind PC games, said this: "Now that the marketplace appears to be ready for more Christian games, our new focus on the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 for future titles should begin our company's transformation from a PC game publisher to an all-platform video game producer."
Will games about Christianity be a huge new success? Or will this series be left behind in the bargain bin? Time will tell I suppose.
