Comments Off on WII U: Fatal Frame 5: The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden

Finally Nintendo is doing something right and making what most sane gamers call a “no brainer!” Today A new trailer for Wii U-exclusive survival horror Fatal Frame/Project Zero 5 has demonstrated the use of the GamePad controller for the title’s in-game camera. The camera’s viewfinder is recreated on the GamePad’s touchscreen, where you can focus in and then photograph the monsters. Fully titled as Fatal Frame 5: The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden, the game is a joint project between series developer Tecmo Koei and platform holder Nintendo, which now co-owns the Fatal Frame/Project Zero IP. Fatal Frame 5 will launch in Japan on 27th September but there’s no word yet on whether the game will get an English-language release.  Now if Nintendo would wise up and make the second game for it’s Nitch system: Pokémon Snap.

Comments Off on Console wars in Japan

Today, Famitsu released the information for the Xbox One launch in Japan. No one seems surprised by the number of units sold, aside from Microsoft’s statements on the longevity of the system. The Xbox One sold only 23,562 systems of the 150,000 shipped to the Japanese market – in comparison, that’s less than half the number of Xbox 360 systems sold in Japan! By the numbers The console’s launch saw the lowest sales results of any system in recent years, placing it below both Wii U and PlayStation 4 sales during the first two days of their respective launches. By comparison, Wii U saw sales of 308,000 units during the first two days of its launch, while PS4 saw sales of 322,000. Xbox 360, on the other hand, sold 62,135 units in half the time it took for Xbox One to sell just over 20,000 units. So what does this […]

Comments Off on Xbox Japan Release Falters

Where were you the day Microsoft gave the United States so much hope for the future of Xbox One?  The fanboys swooned at the beckon call of the Bill Gate’s army, in the future of Xbox One. They said they would beat Sony PS4 once they released worldwide, and even threw a fantastic Live Stream event from Japan locations showing the outpour from consumers in Japan. They all wanted to get their hands on the Xbox One! Right? … Japan finally got the console (nine months after it hit shelves in North America, Europe and Australasia), but the usual enthusiastic crowds that greet big launches in Japan were absent on Thursday morning. Ultimately we’ll have to wait for next Wednesday with the release of the Media Create charts to know how the Xbox One’s Japanese launch is really going, but keep in mind that the Xbox 360 only sold about […]

Comments Off on 30 years later Mario Bro. Cheat found

Released in the fall of 1985, Super Mario Brothers hit the shelves for NES. 30 years later another life cheat has been found! This infinite lives cheat is just one of many in the series, but a reminder that video games never die. For this trick to work, you need to start a two-player game and follow this video: Burn Noticea Veteran gamer of over 25 years. Non-Competitive. Grew up all over the country in a military family. Along the way learned that video games and sports were my outlets. After creating A&G Ohio (now A&G Con) and distancing myself from undesirables, NGA was created alongside of Javier Guevara. After years of touring the country with my extended family I find myself spending a majority of my time either on the road, fixing vehicles, consoles, or handling business deals.
