A Valley Without Wind Switches Sides

Up until this point, everything we've seen from Arcen Games' A Valley Without Wind has looked impressive, but something seemed off.  The game was originally an isometric view sort of like that of RPGs of old on the SNES and SEGA Genesis and while it worked for the 8-bit style graphics of those days, the more realistic style in AVWW made things look awkward.  Now after months of deliberation the team has switched the game, instead opting to make it a side scrolling affair in the realms of Super Metroid or the more recent Shadow Complex.

Call of Duty: Black Ops - Annihilation Map Pack Zombies Video and Pics

Call of Duty: Black Ops is getting yet another DLC map pack.  This means more "Zombies."  We got "Ascension" with the First Strike pack, "Call of the Dead" with Escalation, and now we get "Shangri-La" in Annihilation.  CoD: BO's "Zombies" modes have really improved on each other, and the latest one appears to follow suite.  Check out the video below for a glimpse of some of the new toys that will be available (pungi stick claymores!).  Yes, the evil monkey makes an appearance.  We even have a screenshot gallery of some hot zombie action.

New Video For Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

The sequel to the so-bad-it's-good Earth Defense Force 2017 is almost here.  Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon has more guns, better visuals, bigger bugs and (supposedly) functional vehicles.  If you spent any time with 2017, you know that the vehicles were one of the worst features in the game.  Calling them "features" does a disservice to the word.  This latest video introduces the Mech, a bipedal, side-stepping weapons platform.  Here's hoping it controls more like the mechs from Trenched and less like EDF 2017's Vegalta.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Perma-Save May Hurt Trade-In Value - Plus 40 Minutes of Gameplay Footage

There have been reports that save game files cannot be deleted from the Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D game cartridge.  Several gaming sites have reported that the instruction manual specifically states that, "saved data on this software cannot be reset."  This has lead people to believe that Capcom has done this specifically to curb (stomp) used game sales.  Since the saved data can't be reset, people who buy a used copy of the game won't be able to start a new game from scratch.   Gamers have speculated that this will greatly detract from the Mercenaries 3D's trade in value.
