Posted by inpheaux on July 15th, 2008 at 8:11 pm

The latest game in the Gyakuten Saiban / Phoenix Wright series has been announced. After the first DS-from-the-ground-up excursion with Apollo Justice, Capcom is back (like clockwork!) with yet another one.

Posted by inpheaux on October 28th, 2007 at 8:01 pm

We've been holding onto this set for awhile. It just kept snowballing, you know? Well, here they all are in descending order of quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BioShock - PC / 360 - The best single-player game I've played since System Shock 2. Portal - PC / 360 (and eventually PS3) - The second-best single-player game […]

Nintendo @ E3 2007 – Numbers, Dates, the Zapper and … a Scale?

Posted by inpheaux on July 11th, 2007 at 12:59 pm

I like Nintendo Press Conferences because you can generally summarize them pretty easily.

Nintendo announces their Summer Lineup

Posted by inpheaux on May 21st, 2007 at 1:00 pm

Nintendo has been rather tight-lipped about when things are being released lately, and on a normal year I'd say they were holding stuff back for E3 but . . that isn't an incredibly applicable excuse these days. Looks like they were just holding back for their Late-May Press Day, which is actually two days, and […]

Posted by inpheaux on March 28th, 2007 at 7:11 am

It is finally happening. After years and years of bitter rivalry, a Mario / Sonic crossover game is finally happening. We don't have tons of information, but it looks like Nintendo and Sega got a hold of a license for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and have taken the opportunity to pit their two top […]
