Junction Point Studios has officially been disbanded by Disney after their final game, Epic Mickey 2, flopped in the game market during 2012 holiday season.
Looks like some Wii monsters will soon be safe from the maiming weapons of aspiring monster hunter groups. The online multiplayer servers for Monster Hunter Tri, the Wii version of the popular franchise, are coming down April 30th. While hardcore fans will likely be in the midst of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (which drops March 31st on the Wii U and 3DS), fans who don't have those systems or don't want to buy the game right away will have to go about monster slaying without their online buddies from May onward.
The Men in Black movies would seem like a natural fit for a good co-op shooter. Agents work in pairs, solving mysteries, getting into crazy shenanigans, and zapping more than their fair share of aliens, bug eyed or otherwise. This past May, to coincide with the third movie, a tie-in game was released for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. The best information we had at the time was that the game had split-screen co-op, and so we gave MIB: Alien Crisis a little coverage.
Remember when we said that we’d be done showing off Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two trailers? Well, we were just pulling your chain there. Take one more look at what this game can offer for your co-op gaming life.
The LEGO series is venerable, and a tremendous success by any measure. Brick environments and LEGO-ized heroes coupled with pop culture thematic material is a recipe for success. As the series has aged, new twists and tricks have been added to formula, and for the most part, these additions have kept the LEGO series good, maybe even very good, but not great. So does LEGO Lord of the Rings have what it takes to make the first truly great LEGO game?
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is right around the corner. If these screenshots, a new trailer, and information about the Collector’s Edition of this game don’t rouse you into buying this game, we don’t know what will.
We’ve been growing thin and stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread, waiting for the release of a great looking Lord of the Rings title to pass us by. Luckily for us, the LEGO Lord of the Rings release date has officially been announced, exciting us to try the new couch co-op relatively soon.
The Wii U is right on the horizon, which for some probably means finally turning in their old Wiis. For others, though, it might mean trying to score some good deals on the old console before it disappears forever. At least, that's Nintendo's thought, because there's two Wii packs due out early November. Happily, they're both local co-op friendly due to the new releases they come bundled with. The two bunddles are the Just Dance 4 bundle (4-player local co-op) for $130 and the Skylanders Giants bundle (2-player local co-op) for $150. These bundles are due to hit the shelves November 4th.
Disney Interactive has just confirmed the release date of the Wii U version of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, only previously revealing the official dates of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii versions.
It’s not easy to lose love for Mario games, especially when what they’ll look like in the near future. Nintendo has (again) pulled us into their newest Mario game, New Super Mario Bros. Wii U from the visuals alone. What’s even better is that we won’t even have to leave the comfort of our own homes to buy it. New Super Mario Bros. Wii U will be fully available for purchase and download via the online Wii U Store.
For those of you who wish a decent video game movie would be released in theaters for once, we might have a true winner with Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. The movie’s official video game, however, is being described as the game that will “Inspire a whole new generation of young gamers”. Both Activision and Disney Interactive have been working on a side-scrolling, arcade title of Wreck-It Ralph: The Video Game for current Nintendo platforms to go right alongside what is portrayed in the movie.
As the first in the highly anticipated series of movies based on Tolkien's The Hobbit approaches, so too does the marketing onslaught, like a horde or orcs and goblins invading the land. Later this fall, a video game tie in, LEGO Lord of the Rings, is headed to your Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii. Frodo, Gandalf, and the rest of the game look suitably adorable in glorious animated LEGO form.
The long-running Ben 10 franchose is back with an all new series this fall. Cartoon Network's shape-shifting, super-cool teen is headed to your TV in Ben 10: Omniverse. It's pretty much a requirement for these shows to have a video game tie in these days, and Ben 10: Omniverse is no exception to this rule. Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and the upcoming WiiU will all get versions of the new game.
Hey! The Last Story is here, making it the second of the three games that Operation Rainfall targeted to make it over to US shores, how about that? With a concept from Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy and a soundtrack from Nobuo Uematsu, how could you go wrong? Read on, and I'll tell you! (spoiler: it's the co-op.)
